Austin, TX, February 22, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Pixntell EDU integrates the Pro and Full versions of the Pixntell app into one download for $1.99, allowing teachers and administrators to download Pixntell EDU without having to make in-app purchases to upgrade features. Also, the EDU version is linked to Apple’s Volume Purchase Program, which gives qualifying schools a 50% discount (.99 cents each) when schools purchase 20 or more downloads at a time. If an institution is tax exempt, it will not be charged sales tax either.
Pixntell EDU is a digital storytelling app with endless possibilities in the classroom. Developed specifically for educators and students, it allows users to create video slideshows using their own photos and voice. The EDU version allows you to upload an unlimited number of photos, arrange and rearrange them in any order, and easily record audio at your own pace by swiping through the photos. Stickers, text, fonts, filters and other editing tools engage students by letting them further personalize their projects. Pixntell EDU is being used in classrooms around the world in virtually every discipline. Students make Pixntells for writing exercises, science fair demonstrations, book reviews, trailers, math explanations, journal entries, visual poetry, and many other projects.
Why create the EDU version? Co-creator Barry Crutchfield explains, “We heard from teachers across the country who were unable to enjoy all the features of Pixntell because their school would not allow them to purchase in-app upgrades. We responded with the EDU version so that our digital storytelling app would be affordable and universally accessible in classrooms. With three boys of my own, I know how much easier it is to engage kids if technology is involved, especially when they get to be the star of their own show.”
Pixntell and Pixntell EDU were developed by Focustrain LLC, an Austin, TX privately held company that was founded in 2011. Focustrain's mission is to provide useful apps that are affordable, easy to use, and focused on parents, children, teachers and education. Pixntell EDU is available on iTunes and is translated into 14 languages.
