SAN FRANCISCO, March 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Fingerprint, a global mobile technology company leading the rapidly growing kids' mobile education and entertainment content market since 2010, today announces the signing of its 200th developer.

"Kids' engagement with Fingerprint's mobile services has grown 10-fold since January 2015, with more than 15 million play sessions in February alone, largely due to the quality of content we're offering kids and parents," says Fingerprint CEO, Nancy MacIntyre.  "We're thrilled to add some of the world's best creators to our most recently launched service, Samsung Kids."

The company welcomes the newest content entrants to the Fingerprint family of partners:

  • Night & Day Studios: Creators of Peekaboo Barn and other bestselling preschool learning apps.

"We are delighted to partner with Fingerprint to bring our content to Samsung Kids platform through this simple and intuitive subscription service."    

"The kids edutainment market is on an upward trajectory due to kids' behavior," notes Michael Pachter, Wedbush analyst. "With over 100,000 kids apps available in the app store,  parents seek safe and high quality content so their kids can have fun and learn.  There's a remarkable growth in volume and depth of both games and learning experiences.
