[prMac.com] Denver, CO - No need to wait for the first snowfall to build you own snowman. You can now do it with your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad. The Snowman Construction Kit lets you create a snowman picture using dozens of parts in a simple, fun mobile app.
CleverMedia, Inc. created the web's original Snowman Construction Kit back in 1997. It has been updated over the years with new graphics and features. Kids and adults can build and share snow creations. Now it has arrived on the iPhone with an app version.
"When I first built the Snowman Construction Kit in the 90s," said CleverMedia CEO Gary Rosenzweig, "I was surprised at how many people came to the site. But over the years I've learned that people love it because it because it is a simple idea that can lead to a great deal of creative expression."
After installing the app on the iPhone, users can select building blocks and move them around to create a picture. They can choose piles of snow, clothes, branches, hats and even a carrot for the nose and coal for the eyes.
Users can also app a caption to their snowman, turning it into a custom greeting card. They can then take a snapshot of the picture. These pictures can then be sent as email messages, multimedia text messages, uploaded to picture services or saved to their computers.
"Like the web site, I envision people going way beyond snowmen," said Rosenzweig. "They will create animals, families, comic panels, and whole winter scenes."
People can find the Snowman Construction Kit app by searching for it in the App Store.
