[prMac.com] Cologne, Germany - Developed by OwlyApps, Picture ABC is a brand new word game app for the iPad with amazing pictures to help children learn new words by matching alphabet letters and spelling words. It includes over 100 pictures of animals, nature, fruits, etc. and as a season's special also a Christmas category. Additionally, personal photos can be added quickly to build individual categories.
The app is intended for kids who have started reading and know the ABC (age 5-7). On opening the app, kids can start right away or parents can check out the settings. The difficulty level can be adjusted. Words can be read aloud and repeated, the correct spelling can be shown in advance and the number of letters can be changed. Words are currently available in English and German.
To solve a word, kids need to drag the right letters into the boxes in the correct order. When all boxes are filled, the owl will let them know if the answer was correct and come with a surprise when a certain number was answered right. Overall, Picture ABC is a great fun and educational word game with a great number of words from different categories and a nice feature to personalize with own pictures.
