Cartoon ABC for iOS - Your Child's First Step to Reading
July 9, 2012 in Education
[prMac.com] Holmdel, New Jersey - Kid's Academy Company today is proud to announce the release and immediate availability of Cartoon ABC, their first educational and interactive app for kids aged 2-5. Designed for both iPad and iPhone, Cartoon ABC guides young explorers through the exciting world of letters, sounds, and words and helps them make their first steps in reading.
Cartoon ABC involves preschoolers into game-like alphabet learning with 100+ amusing animations, 70+ charming characters, exquisite design, and original sounds. They are able to learn individual letters and how each letter is used within a word. With Cartoon ABC kids will also develop their memory and motor skills, as wells as learn to associate a visual image of an object with its spelling and the way it sounds. As a result of using Cartoon ABC young users will memorize the letters of the alphabet, remember the words that start with a corresponding letter, recognize the way the words get written, and have fun.
A child friendly navigation allows kids to be entirely in control of their learning experience. They can pick any flash card and play it as many times as they want. Each word has fun animations that come to life with a tap. It's an attractive and colorful approach of introducing the alphabet to children.
Parents will appreciate the educational value of the app and a specially designed Parents Area. It serves not only as a place to change settings and add profiles; it also helps parents monitor their children's progress in learning the alphabet through the progress chart. It shows how many times each letter has been played, which letter has been played last, and which letter has been overlooked. Parents will also like the way developers care about children's privacy: the app does not contain neither in-app purchases, nor ads, and is not integrated with any social networks.
Cartoon ABC is created with the help of the state-of-the-art-technology. HTML5, the most mobile ready programming language for developing apps, allows Kid's Academy's IT specialists to embed rich content, such as video, audio, high quality drawings, and animation without using any plug-ins and third party components. As a result, Cartoon ABC's size is slightly bigger than 25MB, which makes it fast to download. Cartoon ABC designers used highly scalable vector images which makes the app look sharp on the whole range of Apple devices - iPhone, iPod touch, and the new iPad with Retina display.
"We wanted to create a high quality application that is educational as well as entertaining for kids and for their parents. Our ultimate goal is to develop a whole series of worthy applications that will help kids get ready for school," says Alex Shingel, CEO at Kid's Academy Company.
