[prMac.com] Pretoria, South Africa - Appabox today is thrilled to announce the release and immediate availability of Peekabox-Forest: Flashcards 1.0, their debut educational app built exclusively for Apple's revolutionary iPad devices. The first in the Peekabox-series, the app is intended as an educational tool for children and a modern interpretation of flashcards in the digital age. It combines the effectiveness of traditional flashcards with interactive "flash," including animation, transitions and video clips.
Peekabox-Forest: Flashcards is completely unique and innovative, resulting in an interactive, animated, animal adventure with different modes to keep things interesting and fresh. The app is built with a kid-friendly user interface, immersing children into the portable animal world, with HD animal photos, video clips, animal sounds and a fun game to test their knowledge. This app has been rigorously researched and tested on targeted age groups and found to be both engaging and educational.
Ilana Sadie, Head Designer at Appabox says, "For the graphical user interface, we've focused our attention on lots of animation and colorful graphics to grab a child's attention. We did not want to compromise quality for app size and therefore, retina graphics are included throughout the app. For content, we've focused on fresh multimedia. For example, we made license agreements to secure professional recorded animal sounds of the highest quality."
The photosets for the animals include: single, plural, close-up, baby and/or mother and baby. Children will adore the inclusion of the cute animal babies accompanied by their distinctive sounds. Peekabox-Forest is made for parents, babies, toddlers, therapists, special needs children and animal lovers - a beautifully designed app of the highest quality offering an epic and modern, animal flashcard adventure from start to end.
Raine Sadie, co-founder of Appabox says: "Our short-term goal is to add some more features to Peekabox-Forest. We are also working on more animal apps to add to the series, starting with Peekabox-Safari. Our long-term goal is to expand Peekabox to even more categories such as the house, transportation, nature and music."
