[prMac.com] Pleasantville, New York - Artgig Studio, a boutique interactive agency in Westchester, NY, is offering their popular kids educational app, Shake-a-Phrase, for 50% off starting today, Friday 9/30, through Sunday 10/2, as part of the Apps For Children With Special Needs (A4CWSN) iPads in Fifty States initiative. Shake-a-Phrase will be only 0.99 (usually $1.99) and Artgig will donate half the sales proceeds to A4CWSN for this worthy cause.
A featured iTunes "Storytelling" Education App, Shake-a-Phrase combines physical device shaking with hilarious randomly generated sentences in a game for kids ages eight and up. But fun is only part of the appeal. The app actively engages kids 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 vocabulary list of more than 2,000 words was compiled by teachers and parents, and includes a broad range of age-appropriate, interesting and entertaining words. Shake-a-Phrase offers five distinct content flavors to customize learning: Starter, Animals, Monster, Fairytale and a new Sports theme that includes its own dictionary.
Artgig President, Matthew Kicinski, says, "We're honored to be invited to participate in the App Party this weekend. The A4CWSN goal to give 50 iPads to 50 children with special needs in 50 states is really easy to get behind and we're happy to help."
