[prMac.com] Tel Aviv, Israel - Announcing that Best Kids Apps, the developers of ZOOLA, has released their latest update for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad users. ZOOLA is a new, adorable application that teaches very young children the name and sounds of a lot of different animals. The app offers more than two hundred HD photos of a mommy, daddy and baby of each animal type, along with another picture of the species that promotes a feeling of togetherness. While there are already a lot of animals in the app, developers are adding more dog breeds to future updates.
ZOOLA is an application that appeals to the young and young at heart. It has been developed primarily as a tool for teaching tiny children about the wonderful world of animals but it's so darn cute, that adults love it, too.
The app contains more than two hundred heart-melting, HD photographs of various animal types. There are currently four categories to choose from: farm animals, safari animals, forest animals, water animals. For each animal, there is a picture of a daddy, a mommy and a baby, along with their associated sounds.
Every animal also displays a fourth snapshot that may show a child and the animal, or two or more of the animals in a heartwarming shot, thus promoting the feeling of togetherness. While the fourth photo is being displayed, classical music melodies play in the background. Using the app is really simple, kids merely have to tap an icon or screen to perform an action, making it a program that they can enjoy on their own.
