[prMac.com] Madison, Wisconsin - Independent developer Steve Glinberg makes international news with the launch of the International Edition of his popular education app, 123 Color: Talking Coloring Book, for iPad/iPhone, which teaches numbers, letters, and colors, voiced in 17 languages and dialects, to kids ages 2-10.
123 Color, International Edition, Talking Coloring Book exploded onto the international market this past weekend, instantly becoming a top 10 education app in 40 countries worldwide, and hitting #1 in China and 6 other countries.
123 Color International includes more than 350 cartoons, drawings, photos, and handwriting guides in all, to be painted by freestyle finger painting or touch-to-fill, along with voice-overs of letters, numbers, and colors in 17 languages and dialects including:
* Chinese (Mandarin and Cantonese)
* English (American, Australian, and British)
"With 123 Color, I aimed to provide children an exciting multimedia experience for learning and play," said Steve Glinberg, 123 Color's developer. "When I watch my daughters color in the drawings with determination and then quickly move to snapping their fingers, dancing and singing along with the reward music, I get a strong sense that I have accomplished my goal. With 123 Color, International Edition, I aim to extend that magical and fun learning experience to children around the world."
The standard edition of 123 Color, which teaches numbers, letters and colors voiced in 4 languages, made a similar climb to the top of Apple's education charts, earning a feature on Apple's New & Noteworthy list of apps, and becoming the App Store's most downloaded paid education app in March, 2010. One month later, with the debut of the iPad itself, 123 Color HD was released and it too hit #1 in the App Store.
TheiPhoneMom calls 123 Color, International Edition, "fantastic" and "one of the most detailed, feature rich, educational coloring apps you'll find." PadGadget.com calls 123 Color, International Edition, a "Great app for kids!"
