According to his mother Robert Nay taught himself how to program and created his first website while in third grade. Now he has his own Company called Nay Games and he is already looking to his next big hit.

 ABC News in the USA reports that, “during the past two weeks, his free game ‘Bubble Ball’ has been downloaded more than 2 million times.”

All Things Digital explains how Nay learned the skills needed to create the app:

Some months back, a friend suggested that if Nay liked his iPod touch so much, perhaps he should try his hand at programming for it. At first he tried the standard Objective-C programming tools, but found the learning curve a little steep. He tried another tool called GameSalad, but didn’t like the results. In the end, he settled on the Corona tools from Ansca Mobile. Corona was easy to use, he said, and also let him write once and publish for both Apple and Android devices. […]

Robert’s mom, Kari Nay, drew some of the levels of the game, though Robert did all the coding. Kari Nay also handles the business tasks, such as submitting the apps to the App Store and Android marketplaces.
