Nobis Studios was started because of a Christmas gift. It was a spark of an idea from Leo Chan, who watched his mother unwrap an iPad. Within a half hour she was sending emails in Chinese, skyping and playing games. The intuitive apps allowed her to interact and learn in a personal way, something she had never experienced previously. From that point, Leo made the decision to dedicate his time in writing software that connects with people at a personal level.

And thus, Nobis Studios Inc. was started in 2011 in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
