Whopping ABCs with Animals
By Appsipaja Oy
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Another Whopping Apps release with an educational twist!
ABCs with Animals is an interactive picture book for learning English vocabulary and letters with stunning photos of different kinds of animals. The app is meant for toddlers and preschoolers who take their first steps of either speaking or letter recognition. With this app, kids can easily learn by themselves without even noticing that they’re learning.
There is nothing too complicated in the functionality, just tapping, watching, and listening (and learning!) Tap a letter button, watch a photo, and listen to the narrator. As us parents know, learning includes lots of questions, like “what do polar bears eat?” For these crucial “parental brilliance moments”, ABCs with Animals has a seamless Wikipedia integration, so parents can easily read the answers for the arising questions and keep their status as an all-knowing mom or dad! :)
✔ 170 beautiful photos of different kind of animals
✔ Common animals, as well as exotic species
✔ Narration with a clear, pleasant voice
✔ Links to Wikipedia to learn all about the animals
✔ Retina graphics supported (2048x1536)
✔ All photos and sounds work even when offline
The user interface is very easy to use. Just tap a letter and a beautiful photo of an animal starting with the corresponding letter is shown. A clear and pleasant voice says e.g. “B as in bumblebee.” Tap the photo again to close the photo and go back to the letter menu. There are 6 letters per page, swipe back and forward to see more. There are many animals behind each letter button, and the image is chosen randomly. On the last page there is a big random button, which gives you a random photo from the whole collection.
From the main menu you can visit our Facebook site or download other Whopping Apps or rate ABCs with Animals. Please note that because of unintentional tapping, buttons must be held down for three seconds, until they actually do anything. The main menu also has a Whopping News box for information about other Whopping Apps releases and funny – and sometimes even useful – information. Tap the big round green blinking button to start the app. Background music can be turned off from the device's Settings menu.
THE WIKIPEDIA LADYBUG
Tap the ladybug at anytime to open an internal web browser to see a full link collection to Wikipedia. The link collection is a perfect way to learn more about the animals included in the selection and to see even more pictures. Tap the red cross to close the internal browser. This feature naturally needs an Internet connection, but all of the interactive content (like photos and sounds) is wrapped inside the app, so they work offline too.
★★★ Built for kids, tested by kids, enjoyed by kids – and parents! ★★★
★ An iPhone version will be released in the near future.
★ Also, ABCs with Machines and other cool “little boy oriented” stuff will be released soon.
★ Remember to rate 5 stars if your kids like it. It keeps us (the author with three toddler “developers”) busy. And remember to check out other Whopping Apps too.
★ Visit our webpage for support, news, and other stuff.
OTHER WHOPPING APPS
Remember the other super popular Whopping Apps – exciting videos and photos about trains, diggers, fire trucks, puppies, frogs, planes, and sports cars. Just search “Whopping” in the App Store!
What's New in Version 1.1
Thanks for the feedback and comments. Monkey listens and monkey does:
✔ Buttons for Facebook, Rating, Website and More Apps are hidden behind the "Parents tap here" button. Tap and hold the button for 5 seconds to reveal the extra feature buttons. And of course please tap those revealed buttons and rate and check out other Whopping Apps!
✔ The Wikipedia ladybug can be disabled from the iPad's setting menu. The same place, where background music can be shut off too. Wikipedia Laydybug still lurks at the main menu, but one has to tap and hold it for 3 seconds, before it activates.
✔ Added some more pictures (like Shark attack!)
✔ Added the word "Whopping" into the App name which appears on the App Store.
✔ Other small fixes like...err..who remembers this stuff?! :}
iPhone version is soon ready, expect that in July. The Whopping ABCs with Machinas and other cool stuff is under development too. Stay optimistic and expect that also in July.:)
