In celebration of President’s Day 2013, MEDL Mobile, Inc. and Encyclopedia Britannica will team up to give the Britannica Kids: U.S. Presidents app an upgrade, MEDL announced in a recent statement.
The application includes games, facts and quizzes for each president, covering their birthday, their wife, their vice president and interesting facts on each Commander in Chief.
The app, launched in 2012, will now have full biographies for each President, chronologically listed from life to death. Information includes education, political careers and Presidential terms. The updated app will include improved functionality and a better user interface for iPhone 5 and iOS 6; a subsequent update will include enhanced functionality for the iPad3.
“The biography feature adds more depth to the app. With a touch of the finger kids can now learn more about each president’s life,” said Dave Swartz, president and COO at MEDL Mobile. “This feature allows kids to easily explore the forefathers of our country and the nation’s chief executives of the present day.”
The app is currently for sale in the Apple App store on a special President’s Day price of 99 cents.
