[prMac.com] Cupertino, California - Bellamon, a leader in developing innovative pre-school iOS apps, has launched an iPhone version of its classic preschool ABC learning app Shape-O! ABC's for iPhone. The iPhone version compliments the company's celebrated iPad edition, and has already earned critical acclaim from parents and teachers around the world.
Designed in consultation with a PhD-level education specialist, Shape-O! ABC's for iPhone has been re-imagined to accommodate tiny fingers on the device's small touch screen. It encourages learning-by-doing by integrating puzzles, shapes, words, colors and sounds into one engaging activity, so that kids learn their ABCs in an interactive, fun and effective way. Additional app features include:
* Over 100 delightful shape puzzles that makes learning fun
* Thoughtful design and a UX that focuses on kids - not adults
* 8 beautiful color palettes to capture and delight the senses

Plus, true to the Bellamon philosophy that always puts learning ahead of commerce, Shape-O! ABC's for iPhone is offered with no in-app advertising, no in-app purchasing, no website links on the play screens, and no stressful countdowns.
"Bringing Shape-O! to the iPhone is a natural evolution," commented Patrick Liem of Bellamon. "Now, even more very young minds around the world can learn their ABCs in a creative, independent and fun digitally-enhanced way. And based on the feedback we've received so far - with one review site heralding Shape-O! ABC's as a 'recipe for pre-school bliss' - we're excited and delighted to be sharing this special kids learning app with children, parents and educators around the world."
