[prMac.com] Tel Aviv, Israel - TinyTap is a free iPad based app which turns everyday moments into fun educational kids' games. To create a TinyTap game all one needs are some images and narration. This allows for the creation of question-answer style games where the child will be prompted to tap on the correct answer. But this new Type Tool changes all that.
The TinyTap Type tool makes game creation far more dynamic. Parents and teachers can now create interactive storybooks with the addition of some text. The added text can then be narrated allowing kids to see, hear and interact with the text. The Type Tool can also be used to improve a child's spelling by omitting a letter from a word and then prompting a child to tap on the missing letter.
Yogev Shelly, TinyTap co-founder, said: "After endless tinkering, we've designed an all new approach to handling text on touch devices. We've completely re-imagined how it will feel if text was a real object that you can simply move to where you want it to be or pinch just to the right size. We know it opens up amazing doors of creativity in education. It's our little Christmas gift."
Older kids can also enjoy this tool which lets them play with the size, position and color of the text. The tool is designed to be simple and intuitive to use making it the perfect tool for kids who are learning to read and write. This tool makes learning to spell fun and interactive.
With the TinyTap Type Tool children can actively participate in the story creation process turning them into the authors of their own stories. And for kids, there's nothing quite as exciting as that.
"For us, these interactive storybooks are just the beginning. We're planning on introducing many other features which will make the learning experience we offer even more dynamic," added Shelly.
