About Lars apps

Lars apps are centered on the adventures of Lars, the horse. Each app presents a unique format to delight curious young minds by introducing ideas of culture, adventure, humor, compassion diversity and vocabulary in a gentle, interactive and imaginative way. 

We strive to create both simplicity and sophistication that the best technology offers, with the kind of private contemplation and learning that we all know that for example – books – have always engendered. We firmly believe there is a way to bring the strong artistic and educational tradition in literature to apps.
