in Education (E)

[] Montreal, Canada - Tribal Nova has decided to make its iPhone app available for free and to reduce the price of its iPad apps to $0.99 starting tonight until June 11th midnight as a way to support Gary James' Apps for Children With Special Needs giveaway party and the Special Needs community. This concerns i Learn With Poko: Seasons and Weather! for iPhone and iPad as well as i Learn With the Mighty Jungle: Animals! on iPad.

"Gary is doing a fabulous job to help the Special Needs community. We are very happy to support this initiative as much as we can. Since we had a limited amount of promo codes, we decided to make the app free to make sure that all the parents with special needs children could get it." says Pierre Lelann, co-founder of Tribal Nova

For Gary James, "there can be no doubt at all that touch tablet technology is opening up a new world of interactive communication for children with special needs, and we can't wait to spread the word."

I Learn With is a cross curricular game-based learning program that helps prepare children for school, while having fun, one app at a time. It is produced by the developers behind the award winning PBS KIDS PLAY! and CBC Wonderworld online learning programs.

With self adjusting levels of difficulty, the games are designed to adapt to the child's developmental needs across a full breadth of subjects, such as, math, science, literacy, language development, social studies, creativity and much more. Games are developed based on National Standards with the help of educators and child psychologists. Each difficulty level corresponds to what a child is supposed to learn at a certain age: 3/4, 4/5 and 5/6 years old. All games feature friendly characters from popular TV shows broadcast around the globe. More info can be found on the iLearnWith website.

"We've had a lot of feedback from both educators and parents of children with special needs that our apps were helpful. We are very happy our apps combined with the iPad can make a difference" adds Guillaume Aniorte, Tribal Nova's other co-founder.

Apps for Children With Special Needs, will be hosting the world's largest app party on June 11th. It will include giving away over 3000 Apps and 10 iPads for families and children so that they may benefit from these. The App Party is hosted by Gary James of A4CWSN, a site dedicated to producing videos of Apps in Action for the benefit of the special needs community.
