2. Send material as plain text:  no HTML, other coding, or attachments;
and ***be sure to write MENDELE PERSONALS in the subject line***.
3. Correspond directly with the person who or organization which has
posted the notice, *not* with your ever-beleaguered untershames.

Yiddish Alphabet for children on   iPod and  iPhone

Dear friends,

You can now download a brand new application for  iPod  and  iPhone that 
presents the Yiddish "alef-beys" for kids.
It does the following:
1. Shows with colours and little animations all the letters of the 
alef-beys (either in the traditional presentation of 22 letters or in the 
longer version including
the special characters used in Yiddish);
2. Lets you hear the sound and Yiddish name of every character;
3. Repeats with sound and images the whole sequence of the alef-beys;
4. Presents for each letter a training screen where a child can draw with 
his finger the hand-written form of the letter.

This application is to be found here:

and it costs something like $3.50


And gut yontev
