Sprout releases iPhone apps for the wee

Print More

Cable channel PBS Sprout, a joint venture of PBS, Sesame Workshop, Hit Entertainment and Comcast begun in 2005, has released two iPhone apps for preschoolers, available for free at Apple’s App Store. Sprout Player streams 3- to 4-minute Sprout shows and offers parents a peek at Sprout’s programming schedule. Dress Chica is an extension of a Sprout website game where kids can drag items of clothing onto the chicken mascot. Kids can also make Chica dance by shaking their parents’–or their own?–phone. The apps were created with the New Wave Entertainment studio.
