If your kids just can't get enough Nickelodeon in their lives, a new iPad app will keep the fun going all the time, wherever you go, all with a swipe-friendly user interface and more than 1,000 bits of content.
Nickelodeon announced the debut of a free app for the iPad called Nick, which promises "a branded experience that allows kids to interact with Nick in unprecedented ways."
Featuring a moveable tile layout that can be swiped in any direction, Nick offers kids plenty of discovery and exploration as well as instant and on-demand access to more than 1,000 pieces of Nickelodeon-branded content -- short-form videos of original skits, sketch and comedic bits, behind-the-scenes clips and videos and much more.
For cable or satellite subscribers, the Nick app also features TV Everywhere authentication with access to full-length episodes of your favorite Nickelodeon shows from anywhere in the United States where a high-speed internet connection is available.
"The Nick App creates a new platform unlike anything else available to kids today," said Steve Youngwood, EVP and General Manager, Digital, Nickelodeon Group. "The Nick App is the one place where kids can watch and play Nickelodeon and experience the complete fun and funny of our brand, wherever and whenever they want."
The ad-supported iPad app also includes HTML5 games with a new one offered each week, music and remixes for your favorite Nick characters and On the Road with BTR, a "docu-reality" series that goes behind the scenes of Big Time Rush.
Nick is available now as a 45MB download for all iPads running iOS 5.0 or later, and the press release teases that a version for the iPhone/iPod touch could be available later down the road as well.
