TOKYO, Dec. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- XING Inc. (Shiba Park Building B-8F, 2-4-1 Shibakouen, Minato-Ku, Tokyo 105-0011, JAPAN), part of the Brother Industries, Ltd. group, and leader in the KARAOKE business through their "JOYSOUND" brand, has been honored by the Best Mobile App Awards with the 2013 Best App for Children and Kids Gold Award for "Touch'n Sing." The smartphone and tablet app was judged very highly in the areas of usability, creativity, design and originality.
The app is the brainchild of "SumahoMAMA," (Smartphone Mothers) a group of mothers who returned from maternity leave determined to create innovative and thought-provoking educational apps for their own children. Originally created in Japanese, the "Touch and Sing Along Picture Book" series has been downloaded over 1.3 million times, with an English version being released to over 144 countries worldwide in July of 2013. Since then, it has reached #13 on the free app ranking and #1 in the education and kids categories for the iPad.
By merely tapping on the screen, even small children can enjoy popular pre-installed classics like The Alphabet Song, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and The Hokey Pokey to help them learn letters, numbers, colors and shapes. Once they remember the lyrics to the songs, they can sing along in KARAOKE mode and even record their own singing, guaranteeing hours of fascinating and educational playtime. The app is free, and a wide variety of favorite children's songs and nursery rhymes can also be downloaded via in-app purchase.
XING has dedicated itself to creating outstanding and award-winning educational apps for children of all ages around the world and we hope that you look forward to the ever-increasing range of products released by the SumahoMAMA team.
"Touch'n Sing" is currently available on the App Store/Google Play/Amazon Appstore. For more information visit the "Touch'n Sing" website at http://sumahomama.com/touch/ and like SumahoMAMA on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/kidsapps.sumahomama
