Challenge

National Geographic sought to build on
 the success of its top mobile app for children,
 Weird But True, by enhancing audience connection to
 another print-based product through an interactive,
 entertaining mobile experience.

Solution

Mission Data brought the silly jokes that kids can’t get enough of to life with Just Joking, for iPhone and iPad. The app delivers punchlines through interaction or narration. The app features flexible search, secure social sharing, and in-app purchasing.

Results

Just Joking launched on iTunes in August 2013 and completed 2 major releases. The Just Joking mobile app received approximately 1 million downloads and provided sponsorship opportunities.

Timeframe
