PBS launched the SUPER WHY App for Android, the first application for the Android platform from the station. The app, which helps kids build critical literacy skills through storybook adventures, is based on the the preschool series from Out of the Blue Enterprises. The app debuted on other mobile platforms last year, and is now available for Android 2.1+.

“With more than 2 million downloads of PBS apps to date, there is significant interest in PBS content on mobile devices,” said Jason Seiken, Senior Vice President, Interactive, PBS. “Having experienced such a positive response in the mobile apps arena so far, it was important for us to extend the reach of our high quality, engaging content to the Android platform.”

According to the company, the app helps children learn to read with four interactive literacy games, in addition to a virtual sticker book. Young learners can play along with each of the four main characters from the PBS KIDS series:  Alpha Pig, Princess Presto, Wonder Red, and Super Why, while practicing the alphabet, rhyming, spelling, writing and reading.

SUPER WHY for Android is available for $2.99 in the Amazon Appstore, it’s currently not in Google’s Android Market.
