App Review - TWIG Touch Dictionary!

image

Among the first apps I reviewed when I started blogging at iPhoneLife way back in 2008 (ages ago, I know) was a dictionary app--Webster's Collegiate (here for the review) from Paragon--and the basic concept then for finding word information was much like the TWIG Touch Dictionary for iPad now. You would start by typing a word into a search box, which would ultimately result in informative word results appearing. The similarities end there however, as to contrast that early app version of Webster's (while effective) with TWIG would be like comparing a Fiat to a Ferrari. The TWIG Touch Dictionary is truly an app worthy of iPad. It's clever use of a mind map-based interface and touch manipulation is stunning, both in terms of innovative design and elegance.

Minke Rescue - the iOS App that helps save real whales

In a first for iTunes, Minke Rescue is a just released iPhone game that raises funds to support Sea Shepherd.

Harnessing the power of micro-donations, and the addictiveness of Apps, you play the part of a minke whale in the beautiful and harsh Antarctic Ocean. Best of all, it's only 99c - and 30c from every game purchased goes directly to Sea Shepherd.

For not much more than small change you’ll be entertained for hours… and, you’re directly contributing to the protection of Antarctica’s minke whale population. So go ahead, Game for change!
