The Fish & Sea Creatures ABC's App is designed to help children develop early literacy skills such as recognizing letters and numbers 1-10, and increase their vocabulary as they learn about marine life forms. "We hope this app will also help young minds develop an appreciation for the bountiful biodiversity found in the ocean and rivers and inspire them to become good stewards of our planet," said Charmaine Anderson, Owner of Real Art Studios, LLC.

Anderson, an award-winning Web design/developer, multimedia expert and instructional designer has created immersive interactive applications and courses for major corporations such as Intel and Nike among others. "While I have been privileged to design many interactive apps and training for large companies, I wanted to create beautiful educational apps for kids as I love to create illustrations and animation," said Charmaine. "My passion has always been designing world-class experiences that are beautiful, meaningful and delight the end user, and I bring that same passion to the kids Apps I design. I'm a little embarrassed to admit that I do agonize over the details and probably spend more time perfecting the app than most developers would, but I believe children deserve our best effort and a high quality product."

"The concept for this app was born out of my obsession with tropical fish (I own 6 fish tanks!) This fascination with the amazing variety of beautiful fish species inspired me to develop the Fish & Sea Creatures ABCs App so children could experience the same sense of wonder and awe. I also hope in some small way this App might help children develop an appreciation for the fragile ecosystems that sustain aquatic life and inspire them to become good stewards of our planet. The health of the sea is vital to our own existence, especially now with global warming. We must be aware of our impact on the environment and teach our children about life forms in the ocean that depend upon us for survival." said Anderson.

"I'm quite delighted that so many people that have expressed genuine enthusiasm for our App and want to share it with their friends. Its very gratifying to see your hard work appreciated by others, and rather surprising to see that they are just as excited as you are about your App. We put a lot of time into making this a high quality app (two years!) and are very pleased by response it is already receiving," said Charmaine. "We already received a nice award for the App from InteractBuilder, we won second place in their Build an App Contest, and $500, which was a nice surprise. We ended up rebuilding our app in Flash though as we wanted more control over our source code, and exported it as an Adobe Air application which runs natively on iOS and Android devices. We're pleased that even Adobe likes our App on Facebook! We are launching on iOS first and will make it available on Android devices in the near future," said Anderson.

The Fish & Sea Creatures ABC's App is $2.99 on the Apple App Store
