[prMac.com] Lakewood Ranch, FL - Announcing that SuperlaSoft, LLC, the developers of Chinese Holidays and Festivals, has launched an important new product for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad users. The application calculates and beautifully displays any of the thirty traditional Chinese holidays or festivals from year one to year 9999. Chinese Holidays and Festivals is a valuable source of education, as it uses a combination of text, photos, music and calendars to give users detailed information about the historic traditions of the festivals and Chinese zodiac signs, making it an ideal teaching tool for kids and adults, alike. Although based and displayed according to the Gregorian calendar, the app also incorporates the ten heavenly stems and twelve earthly branches, which those steeped in Chinese tradition will especially appreciate.
Chinese Holidays and Festivals is not only practical and very useful, it is an important educational resource. The app's details of Chinese traditions reveal a rich history that goes as far back as recorded time and as far ahead as you can set a calendar. These customs are timeless, in other words.
For anyone interested in Asian culture or for Chinese children who have not been taught about the holidays and festivals, this application can provide a rewarding and easy education through its display of beautiful and detailed photos, the explanations and the samples of music relative to the occasion. Developers have included authentic Chinese elements in the application, including Chinese symbols with the English words and the important ten heavenly stems and twelve earthly branches that the traditional Chinese use in their calendar numbering systems.
As far as everyday application, Chinese Holidays and Festivals offers a feature packed experience that allows users to set any date to find out about any of the thirty different holidays. It can also be used to calculate an individual's Chinese zodiac sign and help a user discover more dates associated with it. The app can also be used as a regular calendar.

While a casual user might think that coming up with dates would be simple, that's far from true. "I was amazed to find out how complicated Calendrical calculations are," says SuperlaSoft CEO, Michael Maddi. It took a long time and a lot of calculus and verification to ensure the accuracy of the app's calculations. "The dates are based on inexact and changing quantities, like the exact time of winter solstice, etc.," Maddi explains.
As a result of those complicated preparations and preplanning, users can rely on the dates shown in Chinese Holidays and Festivals. Thanks to the hard work of Maddi and his developers, the calculations are one hundred percent accurate. This software is an important resource that can assist users in so many ways.
