[prMac.com] Vancouver, Canada - Nitrogen Studios adds a second App to the Kodee's Canoe lineup, and "Nature Flashcards" is a fantastic blend of educational content and gorgeous design. With over 60 nature based cards, 3 languages and direct links to online animated content, this is a must have on every parent's app list.
Kodee's Canoe "Nature Flashcards" is a premium educational App focusing on words and images from the great outdoors. By combining technology and a love for nature, Kodee's Canoe strives to inspire young kids to get outside and start exploring! There are over 60 cards that showcase animals and nature, each with their own interactive animation, and are all based on the world of Kodee's Canoe. Also, the initial launch of the app includes English, French and Spanish versions of each card, so learning basic vocabulary in multiple languages becomes engaging and fun!
"Educational Apps are an exciting way to introduce young kids to new ideas, learn basic vocabulary, or even introduce a new language, but far to often the graphics or designs are lacking the visual stimulation that kids deserve to have." says Nicole Stinn, CEO of Nitrogen Studios. "Why not strive to combine beautiful designs and great animation with solid educational content? It's a great way to keep children engaged with educational content and makes learning that much more fun."
There are a lot of Apps and television shows in the pre-school marketplace, but very few have the sophisticated DreamWorks or Pixar type production values seen in animated movies geared toward the older child. It is not surprising that Kodee's Canoe breaks the mould in this regard considering that it was conceived and created by Nicole Stinn and Greg Tiernan, the Producer and Director of one of the world's most popular pre-school brands "Thomas & Friends". A mega-star amongst the toddler brigade, Thomas the Tank Engine was transformed by the team at Nitrogen Studios from a charming but dated model train TV show to a slick CGI production.
