[prMac.com] Los Angeles based 24x7digital today announces TeachMe: Toddler 1.3, an update to their popular children's learning game for the iPhone and iPod Touch. TeachMe: Toddler teaches toddler aged children letters, abc phonics, numbers, shapes, colors and counting in a fun and entertaining way.
TeachMe: Toddler is different than most educational iPhone apps because it teaches six different age appropriate subjects: letters, abc phonics (letter sounds), numbers, shapes, colors and counting. Parents can choose which topics they want their child to learn, and can also set different difficulty levels for many of the subjects. Parents can review performance history for each subject to check on how their child is doing.
The simple and intuitive user interface is designed to be toddler friendly, which allows children to play without help from an adult. An animated teacher (Mimi Mouse) gives verbal instructions and feedback to the child which makes learning fun.
TeachMe: Toddler keeps children engaged by giving rewards for correct answers. Correct answers will earn stickers which can be placed on one of three different backgrounds to create fun sticker scenes. Sticker scenes can be exported as wallpaper or emailed to family and friends. An alternate reward system can be used where coins are earned instead of stickers. This allows parents to create their own external reward system (5 coins = a treat, 10 coins = a book, etc.).
* 3 different sticker reward scenes: beach, underwater reef, pirate cove
* Over 50 different stickers for adding to a scene
* Coins allow parents to create their own reward system
* Save learning information for up to four different children
* Select which subjects are displayed for each child
