Audubon Guides Mobile Apps Earn the Coveted Parent Tested Parent Approved Seal of Approval

Parents Recommend Audubon Guides as the Ideal Choice for Families to Connect With Nature

WOODSTOCK, VT--(Marketwire - August 24, 2010) -  Green Mountain Digital is excited to announce that it has been awarded the influential PTPA (Parent Tested Parent Approved) Seal of Approval for excellence in family products for three of its apps: Audubon Insects and Spiders, Audubon Reptiles and Amphibians, and Audubon Guides: A Field Guide to North American Birds, Mammals, Trees, and Wildflowers.

These Audubon Guide apps for the Apple iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad were among many entries from across North America competing to earn the Parent Tested Parent Approved™ Seal for the Fall 2010 campaign. Because independent parent volunteers evaluate these products in their own homes, PTPA winners are chosen based on merit and consumer experience -- not on commercial considerations. As a result, the Parent Tested Parent Approved™ Seal has quickly gained recognition as an international leader in certifying consumer products for quality, effectiveness and value.

The Audubon Guides: The Ideal Family Field Guides

The Audubon Guides are the perfect way to inspire an outdoor adventure for your family. Audubon Guide apps create a fun and engaging outdoor experience for all ages by combining the National Audubon Society name that parents trust with the new mobile technology kids love. Now you can explore in depth birds, butterflies, fishes, insects and spiders, mammals, reptiles and amphibians, seashells, seashore creatures, trees and wildflowers.

"With an expanding library of award-winning Audubon Guide apps in the market right now, our goal is to offer a fun and exciting experience that makes family outings richer, more informed and instantly sharable," said David Roberts, CEO of Green Mountain Digital, the digital media company that created the apps in alliance with the National Audubon Society. "We're honored to be recognized by the PTPA for our efforts to bring nature to the fingertips of families everywhere."

PTPA Seal of Approval Signifies Excellence in Family Products

Consumers looking for practical, high-quality products and services can rest assured knowing that products bearing the PTPA Media "Winner" Seal are all "Parent Tested, Parent Approved™."

"At PTPA Media, we are proud to play a role in certifying innovative new products that families can trust," says Sharon Vinderine, president and founder of PTPA Media Inc. "It's win-win. By improving communication between manufacturers and consumers, we are helping companies serve their market better, and helping families identify products that have been tested and recommended by their peers."
