Googly's Alphabets in The Zoo Educational App featured by Apple

April 20, 2010 in Education (E)

[] Oakville, ON, Canada - New children's mobile application studio Googly was delighted to find its first app, Alphabets in the Zoo featured today in iTunes' "New and Noteworthy" section that spotlights new apps of high quality. "New and Noteworthy" apps are the first ones users see when they visit the App Store in iTunes.

Alphabets in The Zoo features a charming new animated alphabet song and story to help children learn their letters as they look, listen, and sing-a-long. Childrens' understanding of the alphabet is taught and reinforced as they enjoy Saad Rashid's colorful animation, listen to the Fauzia Abbasi's delightful lyrics, and enjoy Dave Klotz's catchy tune.

Googly is "dedicated to creating original, fresh content, and keeping it appropriate for kids so Moms and Dads never have to worry about the images or messages in our work."

Writer Fauzia Abbasi is "simply overjoyed to see Apple recognize Alphabets in The Zoo." It was a passion project for Abbasi who absolutely lives to write. "Alphabets in the Zoo was something that I actually imagined. My vision was a trip to the Zoo with alphabets holding my hand. As we reached each Zoo cage the alphabets would get so excited if the name of the animal we saw started with their letter. Poor "x" was naturally disappointed when he couldn't find an animal corresponding to his letter - so I created a new creature, the Xoni, just for him!"

For a new children's application studio it's quite a coup to be featured by Apple's iTunes. Googly plans to release an iPad version of Alphabets in The Zoo shortly, and three more original children's apps in the next 30 days.

* iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad

Pricing and Availability:
Alphabets in the Zoo 1.0 is only $0.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Education category.
