[prMac.com] Palo Alto, California - Independent children's app developer Duck Duck Moose wins the iLounge 2010 iPod/iPhone Kids' App of the Year Award for Park Math. As noted in iLounge's 2011 Buyers' Guide: "Duck Duck Moose's iPhone and iPod touch apps are so consistently great that any one could be the Kids' App of the Year; still, the $2 Park Math was the best."
"Of the many developers now producing apps for children, Duck Duck Moose has repeatedly stood out because of the excellence of its art, music, and kid-friendly interfaces. Park Math builds upon all of the company's past titles, teaching basic counting, addition, subtraction, and related skills in a manner that's gentle and polished enough for young children to enjoy. Who knew that math could be so fun?" says Jeremy Horwitz , Editor-in-Chief of iLounge.
Park Math introduces early math concepts to children in Preschool and Kindergarten (ages 1-6). With 7 fun educational activities, Park Math teaches counting, addition, subtraction, sorting and more as children play with Blue Bear and his friends in a park. The music arranged and recorded especially for this app is performed by cello and guitar. Park Math includes two levels for Preschool and Kindergarten. Level 1 includes counting up to 20 and addition/subtraction with numbers up to 5. Level 2 includes counting up to 50 and addition/subtraction with numbers up to 10. The iPad version, Park Math HD, will be released shortly, and will include a third level for First Grade with counting up to 100 and addition/subtraction with numbers up to 20.
