Announcing that One Moxie Ventures, LLC, a mobile applications software developer, has released its latest product for the iPhone and iPod Touch, Wheel of Doom. This new application from One Moxie Ventures doles out punishments to misbehaving children with a spin of the wheel. The app removes parents from the friction of the moment while making an immediate decision on an appropriate penalty for inappropriate behavior.
Wheel of Doom is the latest title from a developer who has centered their applications on children’s issues, such as education, sports, and behavior. Concentrating their efforts to help parents and kids using a portable, easy to use device seems to be a winning format.
The app was borne of experience and technological capabilities. Company executives, already familiar with mobile software, saw positive potential in using the iPhone as a platform for promoting and distributing their children’s themes. "As a mobile industry veteran from the old Palm days, I am encouraged and impressed with the variety and depth of applications available," said Jeff Musa, founder and CEO of One Moxie Ventures. "We have been pleased with the sales of the apps we create for iPhone."
In this latest app, the developers have given parents a method of choosing punishments while removing them from the heat of the moment. It is the wheel that decides what the result of bad behavior will be. Wheel of Doom takes it out of the parents hands, shifting focus for both parties, which may help provide a ‘cooling down’ while dealing with the issue at hand.
Wheel of Doom Punishments:
- No allowance
- Sit ups
- No video games
- Time out
- Push ups
- Early bedtime
- Write out lines
- No dessert
- No Television
The Wheel of Doom application also has one ‘free’ slot, giving the offending child a second chance if they spin the wheel and happen to land on it. Naturally, it is up to the parents to enforce the determined penalty but they are only carrying out the Wheel of Doom’s instructions. Kids can blame the app instead of harboring negative feelings about their parents. That alone, is worth a lot.
iPhone or iPod Touch 3.0 or later
