[prMac.com] Melbourne, Australia - With the growing presence of iPad devices in schools at all levels, the back to school campaigns that have traditionally been the purvey of stationary outlets are being complemented by online promotions by iPad and iPhone app developers.
These developers hail from all over the world. Knowing that the US Education market has a growing demand for iPads and the apps that enhance their educational value, developers are doing their best to provide apps that will benefit the kids that are about to return to school.
One developer, PKCLsoft, based in Melbourne, Australia, who released two elementary level math apps late in 2011 has risen to the challenge by providing new features in his app, "Tap Times Tables" that will make it truly useful in a classroom environment. PKCLsoft is an independent developer, who is a member of the growing community of family friendly app developers "Parents with Apps".
With the latest release of Tap Times Tables, PKCLsoft has added a range of new features that are specifically targeted for the classroom and homeschooling. These features include but are not limited to:
* Multi-user support
* Teachers can now create student rosters and import them into the app
* Teachers can also create lessons and import them into the app
* Lessons can be shared via email or web based hyper links with other teachers, or with students
* Students are now able to share the results of a lesson with their teacher via an easy to use email interface
These new features, and others that have been added to the app are a direct result of listening to teachers and reviewers of the app. In the near future, PKCLsoft will also be including these same features in their other educational title, Math Plus Minus.
Tap Times Tables is a universal app, and works equally well on iPad, iPhone or iPod touch. It requires iOS 4.2 or later.
Pricing and Availability:
Tap Times Tables 3.0 is normally priced at $2.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and is available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Education category. PKCLsoft takes part in the educational discount program. As such any purchases by educational institutions are given a discount for quantities of 20 or more units.
