I built a Pokedex mobile app for my kids! My kids love Pokemon, so I wanted to build a Pokedex for them to learn more about each Pokemon. Because the boys can’t read yet, I decided to add text-to-speech to the app (similar to the My Robot app I created for them earlier this year). The app is a hit, and we spend a lot of morning together exploring ’em all. Find the app here:




About the app

The app is written in NativeScript. NativeScript is an open source platform for building Native mobile applications where each and every native platform API is available in JavaScript. Rather than cross-compile, or load content in a WebView, NativeScript applications use native components and access the native APIs directly.

With NativeScript, I was able to write a single app to target tablets, phones, and both iOS and Android platforms.

Gotta build my own

The app’s source code is open source, so head on over to my Github repository, download the code, make modifications, whatever you’d like. Check it out at
