Grover stars in first Sesame iPhone app

Sesame Street's Grover now has his own app. And Grover's Number Special is the first official Sesame Street app for the iPhone and iPod Touch. It includes original Sesame video and "encourages visual discrimination, counting and number recognition," according to a Sesame Workshop press release. In it, restaurant waiter Grover catches and counts ingredients to whip up a meal for an impatient customer. Users tip their device back and forth to help Grover catch the foods. "Oh, it is so much fun," Grover said in the release. "Please play my little app--the customer is getting very hungry!" It's $2.99 from from the App Store or iTunes.
