[prMac.com] Dallas, Colorado - Pi'ikea St. LLC today announced that Interactive Alphabet, an app which achieved quick recognition as a leading alphabet app on the iPad App Store is now available for the iPhone and iPod touch. Due to the high level of interactivity in the app, it has become an overnight sensation for learning the ABC's with babies, toddlers, and parents alike.
"A lot of our customers have been asking for this", says co-founder Matt Smith. "We initially designed the app exclusively for the iPad, because we wanted to leverage the iPad's larger screen", says co-founder Ben Lew. "The app translates very well into the iPhone/iPod form factor." The new version of the app is a universal binary which means it runs on the iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch. It also means that customers which have already bought the iPad app can download a free copy of the iPhone/iPod version. Matt and Ben say they wanted existing iPad customers to receive a free iPhone and iPod touch version as a thank you for their support.
In addition to iPhone and iPod touch compatibility, this new version of the app includes some other highly requested features like lowercase letters, phonics sounds, and a slew of other improvements requested by users.
Interactive Alphabet for iPad makes learning the alphabet a hand-on experience. The original artwork and characters draw them in, fun animation and sound effects peak their interest, and memorable unique interactions, such as eating the Apple, playing with the Squid, zipping the Zipper, and making music on the Xylophone keep them coming back for more. Each letter is softly spoken and the upbeat music and sound effects will have kids dancing, mimicking, and asking Mom or Dad if they can have their own iPad. Babies, toddlers, pre-schoolers, and even parents are having tons of fun with this great new app!
