TORRANCE, CA--(Marketwired - June 09, 2014) - JumpStart® is announcing yet another monumental addition to School of Dragons® with the release of the iPhone version of the app. School of Dragons is a critically-acclaimed science education-focused 3D massively multiplayer online roleplaying game (MMORPG) based on the How to Train Your Dragon franchise from DreamWorks Animation.
