[prMac.com] Cupertino, California - Children longing to chat with Santa no longer have to imagine what Jolly Old St. Nick might say in reply thanks to Talk with Santa, an innovative new iOS application developed by Funnel Design Group for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.
Talk with Santa allows parents to take on the role of virtual Santa via voice chat from another device. Parents can also instruct Santa to perform one of eight festive and fun pre-set animated actions, to further amaze and delight their children. And for those clever kids who might wonder why Santa sounds suspiciously like mom or dad, Talk with Santa also features real-time voice altering, so that Santa sounds just the way he's supposed to - and parents can keep their harmless secret safe.
"Talk with Santa is the first iOS App that allows parents to talk and interact with their children by controlling a virtual character - which, of course, is the one and only Santa Claus - from a second device, whether that's an iPhone, iPod touch or iPad," commented Bryan Ellison, Chief Visionary Officer of Funnel Design Group, the creator of Talk with Santa. "The magical result is that children no longer have to send a letter to Santa and wonder what the response might be. Instead, they can have a personal chat with Santa, ask their questions, and receive a real-time response. Talk with Santa is an unforgettable and delightful experience for parents and children alike!"
