Jugo has launched Family Team, an iPad app that helps parents to involve their kids in the household chores using game mechanics

VALENCIA, Spain, Feb. 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Family Team has a specific purpose: make the children learn by playing. This new app launched by Jugo turns all the domestic chores into different missions that will be assigned to each member of the family. Then, everyone has to complete them in order to get points, collect badges and reach their goals. Finally, their effort and persistence will be rewarded with first-class prizes, such as 'going to the cinema', 'playing one hour of video games', 'reading a book with mum and dad' and so on.

This new initiative highlights the importance of acquiring positive behavior patterns at home when we are young as it directly impacts on our personal abilities, such as responsibility, tidiness and self-control. Educators insist on the advantages that game enhanced learning offers as a support of traditional teaching methods. Family Team uses gamification -applying game mechanics to create daily routines- in order to instill the values of responsibility and discipline in children.

Family Team is available for iPad on the AppStore. Its friendly usability along with the growing percentage of tablet penetration in our daily life are the main reasons that Jugo launched their app for this specific mobile device. Jugo is the first Spanish company fully working on the development of technological solutions to achieve goals using game mechanics. Arturo Castello, co-founder and CEO, decided to create Family Team when he realized how difficult it was to involve his three daughters in helping with the household chores. Now, Arturo wants to encourage families all over the world to discover the educational benefits of games at home.

Besides Family Team, Jugo launched Social Raid in December 2013. This business app uses game mechanics to improve the efficiency of the social media content engagement.
