11-year-old developer releases 2 iPad apps before getting ready for PSLE

With his PSLE coming up, 11-year-old Lim Ding Wen is focussing more on his books than his programming. However, he has still managed to find time to do a little work on the iPad.

He's just completed a sequel to DoodleKids called Doodle Magic. Available on the iPad for US$0.99, this app has more patterns, colour cycling, support for the camera, AirPrint support and email.

Also recently released is Invader Wars 2 (free), a sequel to Ding Wen's original Invader Wars. This sequel is an iPad version of a game he first developed on the Apple IIGS back when he was 8 years old.

According to Lim Thye Chean, the boy's father, Ding Wen is now getting into the game engine Unity 3D. He will undoubtedly blow us all away when he finally unveils his first Unity-based game. But first, he'll have to pass his PSLE.

Ding Wen was described as the world's youngest iPhone developer after he released Doodle Kids back in 2009.
