Sesame Street & IDEO build amazing apps on Parse!


With over 50,000 apps on the platform, everyone on the team here at Parse has their favorites. We're powering apps for beloved sports teams, TV channels, shoe brands, and car companies. More and more apps launch every week and we have a lot of fun checking them out.

I'm particularly delighted that two iconic organizations, IDEO and Sesame Street, have teamed up to build apps on Parse. Cookie Calls & Elmo Calls are the two fantastically innovative apps that have come out so far. They let parents have Cookie Monster or Elmo video call their kids and talk to them about critical topics like bedtime or proper tooth brushing. How cool is that?
