[prMac.com] Salisbury, North Carolina - Witty Bit World has released Witty Bits ABC 1.0 for iPhone and iPod touch devices. A child can now learn and practice writing the alphabet on his parent's iPhone thanks to an application called Witty Bits, ABC. The "Witty Bits," are characters used to teach children the upper- and lower-case letters of the alphabet, according to Dr. Jennifer Hudson, a North Carolina pediatrician that developed the concept. Children can explore each letter of the alphabet, listen to music that teaches the child the sounds the letter makes as well as write with their finger on the touch screen of the iPhone.
"Children learn to name their favorite cartoon characters as soon as they can speak, yet struggle to learn the alphabet," said Dr. Hudson. "The Witty Bits bring the letters to life by creating fun, memorable characters. Your child can play with your iPhone and they can learn at the same time. It's a way to reach kids in a new and entertaining way." The "Witty Bits," characters were originally developed as a series of books, music CDs and video on DVD.
"We have a lot more creative content that we can bring to this application in the future," said Dr. Hudson. "I believe the iPhone application can give parents a tool for teaching during long trips in the car, on the plane or any other time when you have a few minutes to spend with your child."
