[prMac.com] Colorado Springs, Colorado - Pi'ikea St. LLC today announced that Interactive Alphabet, an app which achieved quick recognition as a leading alphabet app on the App Store has received the award for the Best Kids' iPad app of the year from iLounge as part of their annual Readers' and Editors' Choice Awards. As a winner, it will be featured in the iLounge 2011 Buyers Guide. Due to the high level of interactivity in the app, Interactive Alphabet became an overnight sensation for learning the ABC's with babies, toddlers, parents, and educators.
iLounge's editor-in-chief summarized the accolade like this: "To say that we were impressed by Interactive Alphabet - ABC Flash Cards would be an understatement - it is truly one of the very best iPad applications yet developed, and a fantastic value for the price. The colorful art, charming music, wonderful activities, and attention to detail make this a 'go-to' title for teaching kids the alphabet, as well as real world uses of letters. That it works with the iPad as well as the iPhone and iPod touch is just icing on the cake."
"We are floored", say Pi'ikea Street co-founders Matt Smith and Ben Lew. According to the duo, "Positive feedback on Interactive Alphabet has been pouring in from parents and educators alike."
Interactive Alphabet for iPad/iPhone/iPod touch makes learning the alphabet a hands-on experience. The original artwork and characters draw them in, fun animation and sound effects peak their interest, and memorable unique interactions, such as eating the Apple, playing with the Squid, zipping the Zipper, and making music on the Xylophone keep them coming back for more. Each letter is softly spoken and the upbeat music and sound effects will have kids dancing, mimicking, and asking Mom or Dad if they can have their own iPad. Babies, toddlers, pre-schoolers, and even parents are having tons of fun with this great new app!
