[prMac.com] Valdemarsvik, Sweden - Oh no, not another ABC app! Yes, we know, there are plenty of ABC apps available, but we think that the beautiful hand painted illustrations makes this app stand out, making it visually different with a feeling of an old-school children's book.
The illustrations are made by Swedish children's book illustrator Gun Porsklev. She custom-painted all the illustrations for the app using water colors, with a soft color scale that appeals to both kids and parents. Each letter is presented with a word and an illustration of the word. Sometimes this is just an item and sometimes it's a full scene. The child can touch each letter and word to hear it pronounced (with both a male and female voice), and of course touch the picture to start animations combined with sounds. The interface is super-easy, and even a toddler will quickly understand how to use.
* Simple-to-use interface, easy for kids to learn

* Swipe from page to page, or use the overview button to jump to any page
