Five Letter Studios today is pleased to introduce a new concept in video players on Apple devices. LittleFingers is a kid friendly video player for the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch that allows parents to lock the screen during playback, preventing young children from accidentally pausing their favorite shows.
"LittleFingers really grew out of need that I had, watching children's videos with my daughter," says Andy Soell, primary developer and owner of Five Letter Studios. "She loves watching her favorite shows on our iPad, but has a hard time resisting touching the screen. LittleFingers solves this problem."
Through an intuitive interface, LittleFingers allows parents to browse videos on their device's Movies, iPod, and Camera Roll apps and play them with a simple touch. Once the video has started, a tap of the padlock control fades the movie controls away so children can watch interrupted. When a parent is ready to browse the videos again, the movie controls can be returned through a simple multitouch gesture.
"I think a lot of parents are going to be really excited about the way LittleFingers helps keep their children entertained," Soell adds. "Watching videos with your kids can stop being a wrestling match, and start being fun again."
LittleFingers Video Player 1.0 is only $0.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Entertainment category. Review copies are available upon request.
