Interactive Alphabet in printed book “Best iPad Apps”

Interactive Alphabet was recently featured in the “Best Ipad Apps” published by O’Reilly Media. Co-Founders Matt Smith and Ben Lew were both surprised with the inclusion of Interactive Alphabet in the book. Matt says “I was really surprised! Usually, we get a heads up that we’re being featured or reviewed or have won some award, but this one totally surprised me.” and Ben was equally surprised saying “It was quite surreal! I kept checking Amazon to make sure it was an actual book and not an ebook. I went straight to the store and held it in my hands and I still don’t believe it!”

The book is listed on the O’Reilly Media site under the description “With tens of thousands of apps available for your iPad, who knows what to download? You can try to sort through a gazillion customer reviews with a mix of 5- and 1-star ratings, but that’s a head-hurting time-waster. The stakes are getting higher, too: instead of freebies and 99-cent trinkets, the price of iPad apps is steadily creeping up and beyond their iPhone predecessors. Best iPad Apps guides you to the hidden treasures in the App Store’s crowded aisles. Author Peter Meyers stress-tested thousands of options to put together this irresistible, page-turner of a catalog. Inside these pages, you’ll find apps as magical as the iPad itself.”

With the inclusion of the app in “Best Ipad Apps” along with the previous award of Best Kid’s App of the year by iLounge, Pi’ikea St., the makers of Interactive Alphabet are excited about the future for the company. Matt offers some insight saying “Well, we have some top-secret projects going on which I can’t talk about yet, but I would like to mention that along with the app we currently have a fan club with an active membership (www.piikeastreet.com/club) where we periodically publish children’s crafts, and a monthly coloring contest where we award an iPod touch (www.colorforipods.com) to a lucky participant!” and Ben offers “Lots of fun stuff planned for this year. But you’ll have to wait and see.”
