[prMac.com] Pleasantville, New York - Artgig Studio, a boutique interactive agency in Westchester, NY, is offering their newly updated educational language arts app, Shake-a-Phrase, for 50% off today, Friday 7/22, as part of a special summer promotion. This is a fantastic offer to beat summer learning slump for only .99 (usually $1.99).
Selected by Apple as a "Staff Favorite," Shake-a-Phrase has received critical acclaim from educators and moms alike, since its May debut. Popular mommy/tech blogger, Kludgy Mom, says, "I LOVE the Quiz Me feature! This is AWESOME practice for verb/noun/adjective recognition in a fun way."
Shake-a-Phrase combines physical device shaking with hilarious randomly generated sentences in a game for kids ages eight and up. The app actively engages children in reading and building vocabulary during the course of play, while the Quiz Me game strengthens their understanding of parts of speech. A Story Starter mode gets the creative juices flowing, setting up silly scenarios and encouraging kids to imagine what happens next.
The recently updated vocabulary list of more than 1,700 words was compiled by teachers and parents, and includes a broad range of age-appropriate, interesting and entertaining words. In addition to the "Starter" content, Shake-a-Phrase offers three distinct content themes to customize learning: Animals, Monster and Fairytale.
Artgig President, Matthew Kicinski, says, "Shake-a-Phrase is a great way to keep kids learning without it feeling forced or regimented. A shake here and a shake there, and before you know it, they're expanding their vocabulary and reinforcing parts of speech - in between laughs of course. It really is fun for the whole family."
