[prMac.com] Kid's Academy develops apps to aid parents and educators in teaching children basic math and verbal skills. Their apps focus on interactivity and feature colorful graphics and animation to engage children between the ages of three and five.
One of the company's most successful apps is 123 Tracing, an app that allows kids to practice tracing numbers. The app is nearing 100,000 downloads worldwide, and it's played a pivotal role in why Kid's Academy's suite of apps will soon surpass one million total downloads.
Apps such as 123 Tracing and Bingo ABC have been top-50 educational apps in the App Store, and Kid's Academy has also brought the well-known stories and nursery rhymes The Three Little Pigs and Five Little Monkeys to life with interactive apps. The simple interfaces of the apps allow children to take the reins and play on their own, but the sing-a-longs and other activities are perfect for parent or teacher engagement, as well. Research has shown that singing along with nursery rhymes has cognitive and physical benefits for children. Not only are children learning new words and the context in which to use them, but strengthening tongue and mouth muscles at an early age will help with pronunciation skills.
"Our apps engage pre-school and other young children on the most basic level," said Kid's Academy CTO Alexander Shingel. "Not only do kids like the sharp, colorful animations, but they get excited by our games and activities because they can interact with and receive positive reinforcement from them."
