iPhone and iPod touch Users Can Now Create, Display and Share Customized WeeMee Avatars

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - February 4, 2010) - WeeWorld, a popular social game and virtual world for teens, today announced the availability of an app named WeeMee Avatar Creator. Users can now create and display customized WeeMee avatars on their Apple iPhone or iPod touch by downloading the app directly here: http://itunes.com/apps/WeeMeeAvatarCreator.

By using the built-in WeeMee editor to create their WeeMees, users can take advantage of the embedded address book to assign their customized WeeMee avatars to visual caller ID images for their friends, family and co-workers. In addition, users can save WeeMees to the Photos app in order use them as wallpapers, share by email, or use them on social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter. WeeMee Avatar Creator also enables users to create, save and make changes to previously-saved WeeMee avatars.

The app was developed in conjunction with Smallmedium, an iPhone app publisher and development studio based in Toronto, Canada.

"Now Apple iPhone and iPod touch users have the opportunity to be creative and have fun making digital identities for themselves and their friends," said Lauren Bigelow, Chief Operating Officer of WeeWorld.
