[prMac.com] London, England - Mindshapes, the interactive learning company, today is proud to announce the Tap-A-Tune app for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch on the App Store. Young children will enjoy learning and playing classic nursery rhymes and holiday music with this app. The app will launch at an introductory price of $0.99 as part of the Mindshapes holiday sale.
Designed for children ages 2 and up, Tap-A-Tune helps improve hand-eye coordination and inspires a child to play music. To play a song, children tap on cute animal characters, each representing a musical note. As they do so, the animals pop up and down on the screen, dancing through the music.
"Young children love learning new songs and tunes, and Mindshapes' Tap-A-Tune app introduces them to the nursery rhymes and holiday songs they will know for their entire lives," says Christian Dorffer, a co-founder at Mindshapes. "Tap-A-Tune also helps children connect to the songs as they tap along, making the tune play on their device. They'll feel a great sense of accomplishment as they hear a song play from beginning to end." The Tap-A-Tune app has three different modes:
* Play mode:
Tap on the animals, as they pop up on the keyboard, to play the notes of a song. Afterwards, the song will play back in full.
* Freestyle mode:
Tap on any animal, in any sequence, to compose your own song.
* Baby mode:
Tap on an animal and the song will play automatically.
Children can also choose the instrument they want for each song. Choices include piano, accordion, clarinet and acoustic guitar.
