The new normal has changed our lives for a while, is making children at home miserable and terribly bored. There is no school, little to no outdoor play time and children are unable to meet their friends. This situation has forced many parents to allow additional screen time to their children. This screen time could become beneficial for kids if they learn productive things instead of watching toys unboxing and cartoon videos. Many applications and games have inappropriate content too. Therefore, from the lens of an opportunity in this entire scenario, Unicorn Black, is launching a mobile app for Android that will make this quarantine period fun and informative. The avatar of this application is going to be the famous Burka Avenger.
