[prMac.com] Pleasantville, New York - Artgig Apps is pleased to offer their newly updated kids educational app, Alien Buddies, free of charge today, Friday 1/27, as part of a special App Friday promotion with Moms With Apps, a collaborative group of family-friendly developers. This exceptional offer celebrates the recent update which adds a brand new Puzzle module to the early learning educational suite.
A featured iTunes Education app, Alien Buddies has been recognized by parents, teachers and app reviewers as a top early learning game suite for Preschool and Kindergarten, as well as an ideal, multi-levelled learning app for children with special needs.
Jason Boyer of iAppsforTeachers says Alien Buddies is "a must have app for preschool teachers and parents. I know the young ones will have a blast learning fundamentals with Alien Buddies." He also states "It's a collection of games that I feel comfortable letting [my daughter] play, because I know she will walk away having learned, or maintained a lesson."
The new Puzzle game is a complementary addition to the existing audio/visual Matching, Dot-to-Dot and Stickers activities, and can be played with 4, 6, or 8 pieces, providing levelled skill-building while developing reasoning and problem solving skills for younger and older kids.
"We're thrilled with the response to Alien Buddies from families, teachers, reviewers and iTunes editors," says Matthew Kicinski, president of Artgig Apps. "Offering the app for free is our way of celebrating the addition of even more cute aliens and fun ways to learn in the brand new Puzzle module."
