Last week, sales of Boston-based Learning Touch’s FirstWords series of apps for the iPhone and iPad crossed the one-million download mark. These are an excellent series of learning-to-read apps, that my 4 year-old daughter absolutely loves. We own a copy of FirstWords Deluxe which definitely helped teach her her letters and enhanced her ability to spell or at least recognize certain words by site. Learning Touch has crafted the apps to do this in a fun almost jigsaw puzzle-like manner that reinforces the learning through multiple visual and audio cues. I highly recommend any title in the series to parents with small children, with the FirstWords Deluxe being a great place to start since it offers a mix of different themes including animals, vehicles, colors, shapes and words from around the house.
For one-day only (May 4th) all editions of FirstWords will cost only 99¢. That’s a savings of as much as $4 per app! In addition, Learning Touch’s will be giving away a total of 100 FREE copies through selected Learning Touch partners throughout the day, via Twitter, Facebook, and partner blogs. To follow the fun and maybe get a promo code, like Learning Touch on Facebook, follow them on Twitter, , or search for the hash tag #FirstWordsParty. Learning Touch’s will be posting updates and links to our partners throughout the day.
It looks like sale prices are live now…so have at them!
