[prMac.com] Leeds, United Kingdom - Parents can now enlist the help of their unborn child when picking their baby names, thanks to a brand new app called Kick to Pick. Available for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, Kick to Pick randomly cycles through thousands of baby names whilst monitoring a baby's movements to sense any signs of enthusiasm there may be. Any kick detected by the program will then stop the cycle at the baby's chosen name, ready for the parents to accept their child's choice or dismiss the name and start their search again.
Featuring a cute baby monitor design and costing just 59p* to download, the Kick to Pick app adds a whole new dimension to naming a child. Not only does it provide a great source of inspiration but plenty of fun too, making it perfect for baby showers, family gatherings or a gift for expecting parents. Those using the Kick to Pick app can narrow their search either by gender or by creating a list of favourites to choose from.
"The idea for Kick to Pick came from a discussion about baby's choices and the fact they had no influence over the name they go onto keep for the rest of their lives," said Nathan Parks, creator of the Kick to Pick. "What started out as a light-hearted chat soon turned into a series of app ideas and we're delighted with the finished product we've designed. It's light-hearted, good fun and a great way to involve the whole family in what is a key milestone of a child's life. Although we're far from reading a baby's mind, we can read their movements and our app will use these tiny kicks and prods to bring another opinion into the naming debate, we're just hoping it doesn't cause any arguments along the way!"
