Like other 8-year-olds, Mohamed Tariq Jaffar Ali plays soccer. His favorite part? Scoring goals, once popping three past the goalie in one game!
He also accomplished another goal off the field: creating an app, Kids Zone that has been downloaded from the Windows Phone Store more than 1,200 times from people in many countries, including Portugal, Mexico, Canada, Chile, Denmark, France, Germany, India and Lebanon. The free app aggregates YouTube videos and clips from popular cartoons such as “Tom and Jerry,” “Curious George” and “SpongeBob SquarePants” and sorts them into channels easily accessible for kids – and their parents. Tariq, for instance, added Mickey Mouse as a channel for his 4-year-old sister.
