Parents Brings Flash Cards to Apple Devices

Parents is bringing back flash cards, Apple-style, as its editors teamed up with child-development experts to create Parents Flash Cards, a new app for the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad.

Parents Flash Cards are available for colors, shapes, letters, and numbers, with the first two offered free-of-charge and the latter pair priced at $0.99 apiece. The packs contain games including flash cards, quizzes, and tracing. Parents said packs for addition/subtraction and multiplication/division will be available by year-end.

Parents editor-in-chief Dana Points said:

The app uses animation, sound, and friendly graphics to keep kids motivated. And I love the positive reinforcement Parents Flash Cards gives kids as they make progress.
