[prMac.com] Windsor, Canada - Red Piston Inc. is excited to announce the release of their first children's edutainment app, Smart Play 1.0, available in the App Store. Smart Play offers bright and playful worlds that let children be as creative as they like while at the same time teaching them to read as well as recognize words and objects in familiar environments.
In Smart Play children can grab the words on the screen and drop them into different environments. As the words are released they magically change into animals and objects revealing what they are. As children continue to play and discover they will learn what each word means. "It was important for us to include scenes that were part of a child's everyday life such as the city and the market. In addition, scenes like the doctor's office gives children a chance to better familiarize themselves with that environment enabling them to be more at ease and aware of their surroundings" said Jakub Koter, Partner. Smart Play includes a variety of scenes including a farm, ocean, safari and city.
This fun and interactive app will provide the ideal combination of entertainment and education for children, making learning to read easy and enjoyable. "By combining text, audio and visuals with everyday objects and places that are familiar to children, Smart Play aims to accelerate literacy among pre-schoolers, while providing older children with an opportunity to develop, explore and share their creativity" said Andy Kale, Partner. Each new and exciting scene will engage children and help them to understand the world around them.
