Complete with a lively host and amusing quiz show sound effects, Lakeshore's new apps put children right in the contestant's role as they compete to earn points and claim the ultimate high score. There is even an optional countdown timer to add extra challenge to the fun. Users can play in single or multiplayer modes, and use audio assistance to help them read questions and answers.

Designed for ages 6–8 or 9–11, each app features over 150 level-appropriate questions covering multiple skill categories—from addition, subtraction and multiplication to grammar, punctuation and more. This allows parents and teachers to target children's individual needs.

"These new apps provide kids with a dynamic, engaging way to learn a wide range of concepts and skills that they'll encounter in the classroom," says Eric Chyo, Lakeshore's Director of Educational Software Development. "And best of all, the apps allow children to learn wherever they go—from family road trips to long lines at the grocery store. The possibilities are endless!"

Lakeshore's new apps are compatible with iPhone® 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch® (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation), iPod touch (5th generation) and iPad®. Requires iOS 4.2 or later.

The apps are available for free through March 11 from the Apple App Store on the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch or at www.itunes.com/appstore. After March 11, the apps will be available for $1.99 each.
