[prMac.com] Pleasantville, New York - Artgig Studio, a boutique interactive agency, is offering their new educational app, Alien Buddies, for free today, Friday December 2nd, as part of a special App Friday promotion with Moms With Apps, a collaborative group of family-friendly developers. This is an exceptional offer to celebrate the Alien Buddies release as the app normally sells for 1.99 in the App Store.
In an Apptudes review, Alien Buddies is described as "an early childhood app that is sure to delight, engage, and keep children learning in a fun way. With layers of edutainment in the various modes, there is plenty to do." Alien Buddies is designed with a variety of games and play modes to suit a range of ages from Preschool to Kindergarten. The games include:
* Matching: color, shape, letter and number recognition (audio and visual modes)
* Dot to Dot: sequential counting, fine motor skills
* Stickers: creative free play, fine motor skills (over 40 stickers and 8 landscapes)
In the visual and audio Matching games, the cast of cute and quirky characters will lead your child on an engaging journey to reinforce fundamental skills: recognizing colors, shapes, numbers and uppercase and lowercase letters.
The Dot to Dot game reinforces sequential counting with audio feedback and helps develop fine motor skills as your child completes each picture.
The Stickers activity builds learning confidence as kids are rewarded with stickers to create their own alien worlds.
Artgig President, Matthew Kicinski, says, "We're proud to add Alien Buddies to our family of unique educational kids apps, and we want to share it with as many people as possible today - as a way of saying thank you to everyone for supporting Artgig Apps and quality app development."
