Nick App

Overview

Based on the extremely successful of Kids’ Choice Awards 2012 app, a record-breaking 223 million votes were cast for kids’ favorite stars, increasing engagement to an all-time high. Fi teamed up with Nickelodeon to create the Nick app, a digital tapestry of all-things-Nickelodeon.

  • Contain all Nickelodeon content, stars, clips, shows and games.
  • Create unique browsing experience different from what is offered online.
