Babies can learn to communicate using hand signs before they can speak, but parents need the right tools to teach their children. Now, California-based app developer Selectsoft is pleased to announce the release of Baby Sign Language Deluxe for iPhone, iPad and Android, providing a fast way for parents and caregivers to learn useful signs they can use with their children. Joining Selectsoft's top-selling iOS Education titles Learn American Sign Language and ASL Word Immersion on the App Store, Baby Sign Language Deluxe is an easy-to-use video phrasebook filled with over 800 everyday American Sign Language words and phrases. The new app from Selectsoft combines video lessons and flash cards to quickly teach practical sign language skills.

The key to successfully teaching a baby to sign is the consistent use of signing by parents and caregivers. Baby Sign Language Deluxe makes it easy to learn, practice and repeat real ASL signs covering actions, emotions, food and more. A universal app for tablets and phones, Baby Sign Language Deluxe features a simple interface that makes it easy and quick to browse through entries. Users swipe to load each video, then tap to play or pause. A professional sign language interpreter clearly demonstrates each sign with audio and text translations. In addition to the phrasebook and dictionary features, Baby Sign Language Deluxe also contains a flash card mode to reinforce learning. Users can review vocabulary and work on memorization with text and video, and even switch between showing the word first and showing the sign first to better target where they need the most practice.

Learning to sign is a way for babies to express ideas and needs that they are not yet able to communicate verbally, helping to avoid frustration on the part of parent and child. Baby Sign Language Deluxe is focused on the kind of fundamental vocabulary that babies use most, including animals, potty training, the body, clothing, feelings, food and more. Also, unlike other dictionary apps, Baby Sign Language Deluxe does not require additional downloads to access all its content, making it perfect for use on-the-go. Even with over 800 signs, Baby Sign Language Deluxe makes it simple for users to find exactly the word or phrase they need using a fast search function. Or, users can browse from the main menu through 25 basic categories: Activities, Potty Training, Animals, Body, Clothes, Colors, Descriptors, Emotions, Food, Greetings, Letters, Numbers, Time, Vehicles, Actions, Beginning Words, Essentials, Home, Kitchen, People, Places, Safety, School, Things and Weather.

Baby Sign Language Deluxe is available now for iPhone and iPad through the App Store in the Education category and on the NOOK Color™ by Barnes & Noble and the Amazon Appstore. Baby Sign Language Deluxe is the latest in Selectsoft's growing line of family-oriented educational apps, which includes Children's Picture Dictionary, Spanish Flash Card Fun, ABC Animal vs. Veggie, ABCs with Dally Dino and many more.

In advance of the 2013 World Artistic Gymnastics Championships in October, California-based independent game developer Selectsoft is pleased to announce the release of Gymnastics Girl, a new gymnastics-themed game for iOS and Android. Gymnastics Girl features easy tap controls, colorful visuals and addictive “runner” gameplay. Even non-gymnasts can have a chance at a gold medal by sprinting, flipping and spinning off mats, balance beams, trampolines and vaults. Warm, hand-drawn graphics and upbeat music invite players into the game, and players can customize their experience by choosing to play as their favorite Gymnastics Girl. Five different avatars are available, each with her own unique look.

With Gymnastics Girl, everyone can get into the gymnastics spirit as the World Championships commence in Belgium. This fun new mobile game combines a sprightly platformer mechanic with a bright, sporty theme, as players navigate an arena filled with four apparatus: floor mat, balance beam, trampoline and vault. Players run, flip and somersault over platform gaps and off apparatus, and see how far they can go before falling. Quick reflexes are needed to keep from tumbling over the edge. With each jump, players can grab gold stars along the way to boost their score and win enough points to capture a gold, silver or bronze medal. The easy tap controls are simple enough for even the youngest players to learn and make the game easy to pick up. However, players still need expert timing to score enough points to reach the top of the medal podium.

Gymnastics Girl is the latest addition to Selectsoft’s growing line of top-ranking casual games for iOS and Android, including Castle Clout, Super Swap!, Time Chronicles: The Missing Mona Lisa HD, and Solitaire Spin. Selectsoft is also the creator of such family-friendly games as Super Word Search!, Hidden Collection, Chicken Dynamo, and Here’s Talky Pete - The Talking Pony Horse. Gymnastics Girl is available now for iPhone and iPad through the App Store in the Games category and on Google Play, the NOOK Color™ by Barnes & Noble and on the Amazon Appstore.
