[prMac.com] Chicago, Illinois - Renkara Media Group today is pleased to announce the release of Contig 1.0 for the new Apple iPad. Contig is a fast-paced math game played in grade schools worldwide but never before brought to a mobile device. Originally created by a retired schoolteacher, Contig helps both kids and adults practice math and computation skills, build strong problem-solving strategies, improve memory, and enhance reasoning. Contig for iPad is available for immediate purchase in the iTunes App Store.
Contig for iPad provides three ways to play. Solitaire mode enables the user to practice alone. Computer mode puts the user against a computer opponent. The computer opponent is available in three levels of skill from Easy to Challenging. Pass & Play mode is also available and allows two human players to play Contig with one iPad, passing the device for each player's turn.
The idea to bring Contig to Apple's new iPad came from Renkara Media Group's founder, Charles Sieg, who remembered the game from grade school. "I learned to play Contig in the third grade. It was my favorite part about math class," explained Sieg. "It's very fast-paced since each turn is limited to 30 seconds. Playing Contig is very effective at building basic math skills and at learning to make computations quickly. It's great for kids but it's also fun and useful for adults."
Contig for iPad expands on Renkara Media Group's popular line of educational apps for iPhone and iPod touch including the award-winning AccelaStudy and top-rated Flashcard Champion.
* Apple iPad with the 3.2 OS installed
