[prMac.com] Cary, North Carolina - Independent applications developer, Staytoooned today is thrilled to announce the release and immediate availability of iTouchiLearn Feelings for Preschool Kids 1.0, their new children's educational app for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. iTouchiLearn Feelings gives preschool, kindergarten and special needs kids the social cues needed to identify, interpret and communicate their emotions.
By interacting with words and associated visual actions, children step through the process that causes an emotion. iTouchiLearn Feelings is now available in the iTunes App Store for the iPod touch, iPhone and iPad devices. iTouchiLearn Feelings sequentially builds early learning social cues and enables children to apply what they learn to real world situations through:
* Funny animations that demonstrate cause and effect feelings and emotions
* Six fun activities that identify core feelings and improve communication skills
* Audio directions to facilitate learning and aid children with speech difficulties
* Ideal supplement for play and speech therapy
* Bonus animated sing-a-long happy song
What they are saying:
"Perfect for use with my students. We do a unit in our reading program about feelings as well incorporate it during our social skills lessons."
"I just checked your app out. It looks great for teaching children with special needs to not only recognize emotions but explain why/how we should feel."
"Wow this truly looks like an app that would be so important to help my students with cognitive disabilities and autism that just don't seem to be able to understand emotions/feelings when described in verbal terms."
"I am also a preschool teacher for children with autism. We work on identifying emotions and feelings in themselves and others."
"I work with students who have ASD and this would be a great app to try out in my schools."
"Fantastic for helping children with special needs understanding feelings, what a great teaching tool."
* iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad
* Requires iOS 3.1 or later
* 33.7 MB

Staytoooned first effort, iTouchiLearn Words was successful in maintaining a good App Store ranking and attracting a solid number of fans. In 2010, Creative Director Jane Scarano decided that the company needed to make a major commitment to developing the best available educational apps.
