[prMac.com] Telaviv, Israel - TinyTap, an iPad app which launched just over a month ago, is a platform that lets everyone create and share educational games for kids from everyday moments and it just got that much better. French, Chinese, Russian, Spanish and Hebrew speaking kids can now experience all the fun that only TinyTap brings to learning. The app will now be offered in all these languages helping more children worldwide play & learn.
There are also other exciting features to look forward to such as a selection of free TinyTap games available to download, play and build on. Until now the TinyTap store, which comes with the app, included only paid games. These new free games are a convenient alternative for parents who want to give their kids fun games to learn from but don't have the time to create the games themselves.
TinyTap offers a learning experience unlike any other. Games are simple to create and can even be shared with friends. All that's needed to create a game are some pictures, which can be snapped on an iPad or taken from a web image search. Parents or teachers then add their own narration. It's never been easier to make personalized educational games designed to suit the needs and interests of each individual child. In a matter of seconds you have an educational game that's not only fun but will develop your child's creativity in unimaginable ways.
Some are lauding this app as the answer to special needs education. It's seen as the perfect tool to help kids with learning difficulties such as autism.
"We're very proud to see this tool being used in such a meaningful way which will have a lasting impact on education. We also believe that new features such as the added language support will enable more people to discover just how creative learning can be," said Yogev Shelly, TinyTap co-founder.
TinyTap is the first platform that lets you create personal games for your kids on the iPad. It allows anyone from toddlers to their grandparents to play and create simple kids games, by using their own photos and recording questions. TinyTap makes playing and learning engaging and personal!
