iKids Play activities draw on the unique features of the iPhone to use tactile and fine motor skills, spatial coordination, color recognition, listening skills, and practice reading books aloud.
Buckingham, Pennsylvania (PRWEB) December 30, 2008
iKids Play™, announces a new iPhone application that provides a creative and fun, convenient, portable and positive alternative to traditional gaming applications. The classic "mommy survival bag", packed with storybooks, coloring books, drawing pads, crayons and pencils has been digitally redesigned as a downloadable application.
Based on print versions of children's picture books, iKids Play was designed for the iPhone and iPod Touch and developed in conjunction with schoolteachers, moms, and kids to provide a positive alternative to gaming. iKids Play™ provides five creative play activities in one application. Activities include rubbing the screen to reveal hidden images, a digital coloring book, a storytime video, the ability to read and record aloud and a digital finger paint pad.
With iKids Play on the iPhone children enjoy creative activities while waiting in lines or at the doctor's office; shopping, traveling, in restaurants; at soccer practice or as a pre bedtime diversion. Best of all the print version of the book can be read to them before tucking them in at night.
Founder and creator of iKids Play, Mark Smith, said, "iKids Play activities draw on the unique features of the iPhone to use tactile and fine motor skills, spatial coordination, color recognition, listening skills, and practice reading books aloud." Smith continues, "But, most important, it lets kids express their creativity while giving parents, grandparents, babysitters or anyone waiting in line or traveling with kids convenience and portability. Your iPhone. Their Fun!"
To promote the association of books with creativity, the print versions of the children's picture books are available for purchase online or at bookstores.
Additional iKids Play versions of books will be available for purchase once a month at the Apple Apps Store.
Just in time for downloading onto all the new iPhones and iPod Touches received for the holidays, iKids Play provides five fun and creative activities in one application that is always with you.
