[prMac.com] Virginia Beach, Virginia - ZiggityZoom just announced the release of a new educational iOS game app WORD Pig for the iPhone and iPad. Word Pig is a fun and educational, early learning, spelling-based app for preschool and kindergarten children. Players can play two different levels, making 3 letter words, using the vowel"i", or spelling the spoken three letter words. Animal stickers, with sounds, are awarded for every five correct words and then the kids can play with their animals in a farmyard setting. Verbal encouragements are spoken by the Pig as kids progress in the game.
Word Pig is the first of 5 apps in the Word Animals suite of apps. Each app in the suite will address three letter words using a different vowel. "These apps are perfect for helping kids with word recognition and formation and to practice spelling for beginning readers. It's an app suited to the preschool classroom or for use at home," said Kristin Fitch, CEO of ZiggityZoom.
* Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad
* Requires iOS 4.0 or later
