Vosonos LLC Releases Interactive Minds: The Solar System

in Education (F)

[prMac.com] Austin, Texas - The first app in a planned series of interactive science book apps has been released by Vosonos LLC. The series, called Interactive Minds, starts with an in-depth look at the Solar System aimed at 8 to 12 year olds.

Through the benefits of its electronic medium, Interactive Minds: The Solar System 1.0 goes beyond just showing images and facts. Hard to visualize concepts are displayed in a hands-on manner. For example, instead of using text to explain that Jupiter has a diameter more than 10 times greater than the Earth, the app allows children to visually compare the size of the Earth to that of Jupiter.

The developer, Stephanie Hoover, explained the guiding principles behind the app stating "I wanted to make a truly interactive science book, not a static book converted into digital form where the only interaction is swiping pages. This app is laid out like a book, but with many embedded videos, panoramas, and simulations to reinforce the content on the respective page. In the digital realm it is time to take books to a new level."

There are 44 pages of content from cover to cover with nested pages to explain the planets and their moons in greater detail. General topics such as gravity, planetary seasons, and space exploration are also discussed.

Device Requirements:
* Requires iPad with iOS 4.2 or later
* 18.5 MB

Pricing and Availability:
Interactive Minds: The Solar System 1.0 is $2.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Education category.
