From the PR Release:
Kurt Warner’s Football 101 for Kids - Pocket Edition for the iPhone and iPod Touch arrives just in time to add to the excitement of the NFL Playoffs and Super Bowl, putting the ease of teaching kids the principles of the game in the palm of your hand. Kicking off in conjunction with its release is a Sweepstakes to win a football, iTouch or iPad autographed by Super Bowl MVP Kurt Warner!
Available now on iTunes for $1.99, the family-friendly app, spearheaded by retired NFL Quarterback Kurt Warner features the two-time NFL MVP along with his sidekick animated football friend Qubee, the leader of the Good Sports Gang. The duo introduces budding football fans of every age to the fundamentals of the game. Completely interactive with cool videos, verbal instructions and on-screen animations, the app makes learning the basics both fun and easy.
Football 101 for Kids breaks the game into four quarters: “Read the Field,” “Who’s Who,” “First & Ten” and “Know the Score.” From identifying the features of a football field to recognizing each player’s role and position, understanding the basics of scoring to learning about downs, and more, Kurt and Qubee will get kids ready to tackle the joys of watching the game and cheering on their favorite teams. Best of all, players can rack up points in the exciting “Lightning Round” timed quizzes designed to test learning comprehension at the end of each quarter.
Requirements: Compatible with iPhone and iPod touch. Requires iOS 4.0 or later. Version 1.0, size 242 MB.
The iPad version of Kurt Warner’s Football 101 for Kids was released in late December. In reviewing the iPad app version Commonsensemedia.org said “Lots of little kids with an interest in football may be completely confused by an overload of action they see onscreen during a televised game, but working their way through this app should help them sort it all out. It’s all explained in a clear and kid-friendly manner, with interactive elements to back it all up.”
