[prMac.com] Malmo, Sweden - Tales & Dice AB today is proud to announce the release and immediate availability of Hanna & Henri - The Party 2.5, an update to their interactive children's app developed for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices. In this interactive children's book app your child gets to meet best friends Henri and Hanna. It is Hanna's birthday and Henri needs to go to the toy store to get her a present before it is time to go to the party. Your child will get to enjoy playful pedagogical exercises such as sorting and counting, and other fun parts of the tale, like popping balloons - because it is fun when balloons pop!
Now featuring U.S. English voice narration by stand-up comedian Brian K. Jordan, this tale alternates between interactive moments and games, and is presented with a narrator and subtitles. Having already established a consistent presence in Sweden, the company now hopes to find a bigger audience in the United States.
"We wanted to add U.S. English voice narration to our apps, complementing existing U.K. English voice. As kids aged 3-6 are our primary audience, we believe that regionally appropriate English is important for the storytelling. Many preschools use our apps in their classes and this will enhance the experience for U.S. kids." says Fredrik Sjolin, CEO of Tales & Dice.
Other features added to this big update are:
* A better font, that is still playful but makes it easier to read
* An updated UI system with an improved credits page and scene selector
* New graphical art, most noticeable being the loading screen animation
* Updated icon and screenshots
* Added 64-bit support
* iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
* Optimized for iPhone 5, iPhone 6/6 Plus
* Requires iOS 6.1 or later
* 83.9 MB
Pricing and Availability:
Hanna & Henri - The Party 2.5 is on 50% sale, for $1.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide through the App Store in the Education category and in Kids 5 and Under. The app itself is free from commercials and does not link to external content.
