Today’s giveaway on my dad blog is brought to you by Ingenious Monkey. The company asked me to review their WordTotz flashcard app for iPhones, iPads, and iPod touches. Unfortunately, I’m not an Apple guy. I’m just an iDad with a Blackberry (this is what real geek dads use). When I’ve caught up with all of the medical bills (thanks a lot, Little Disney), I’ll be in the market for an Android smartphone and iPod Touch. Anyhow, Ingenious Monkey (Facebook | Twitter) is an educational startup that develops creative apps for toddlers and pre-schoolers.
WordTotz is Ingenious Monkey’s first app. With WordTotz, parents and kids can create flashcards from the built-in cards (over 100). Or dads, moms, and kids can personalize the flashcards with photos from their iPhone albums. Parents can also record their own sounds. Cool! Another useful feature of WordTotz is a spelling wizard that helps young children learn to spell the word on each flashcard. With WordTotz, kids and parents can also share their custom flash cards with other devices via Bluetooth. The WordTotz app can be downloaded from the iTune store for 99 cents (you gotta love the concept of a dollar per app).
- Over 100 built-in cards organized into four categories: Animals, Objects, Numbers and Food
- Create custom cards with your own pictures, and record your own audio titles
- Share your creations with other iPhones, iPads or iPod touches
- Spelling Wizard to help learn to spell the word on each card
- Shuffle option to mix up the flashcards
