[prMac.com] Toronto (ON) Canada - zinc Roe announced today its new 'Doodlecast For Kids' App for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch is now available on the App Store. The app records real-time video as kids draw, capturing the story behind their pictures.
The Doodlecast For Kids App comes with more than 20 drawing prompts - simple questions designed to give kids a starting point. Kids can choose from one of the prompts or start a drawing from scratch. The app records the entire drawing process along with audio from the microphone to create videos up to three minutes long. The videos are as fun to watch as they are to create and Doodlecast makes it easy to share them with friends and families.
"Drawing with my toddler on an iPad, iPhone or an iPod touch is a great way to learn about the things that are important to her," says zinc Roe founder Jason Krogh. "Watching videos that my daughter created with the app shows me the world from her perspective."
The Doodlecast For Kids App is a fun creative activity, but it is also a valuable teaching aid. Families can use the app for everything from practicing counting and letters to talking about feelings.
Doodlecast is part of the Tickle Tap Apps line of apps. Tickle Tap Apps are age-appropriate educational games preschoolers can enjoy anywhere. Tickle Tap Apps are enjoyed by thousands of parents and have been recognized by the Parent's Choice Awards and Children's Technology Review.
