PaperHelper In Depth: An Interview with Cameron Oelsen

image



Last year, a new app called PaperHelper caught the attention of many. This app, produced and distributed by RumbleApps, was remarkable for two reasons. One was its novel approach to improving productivity in education along with a unique design interface. The other was that PaperHelper was the brainchild of two teenagers, Cameron Oelsen and Antony Basta, who had formed RumbleApps in 2010. PaperHelper was actually not their first appthat was QuikSocial (free), which gives users the chance to access multiple sources of entertainment and news in one seamless stream.

5 Apps To Help You Learn Spanish

image

For our family vacation next year, we've decided to take a trip to Costa Rica. I know it's still 10 months away, but I'm already dreaming of gorgeous beaches and zip lining through the jungles.

The problem is, most of our vacations have been to English-speaking destinations. So I've decided to learn Spanish.

Besides a one-year course in high school (which was a long time ago) and words I've picked up here and there by living in the Southwestern United States, I am not even close to communicating with someone whose only language is Spanish.



Boundless Textbooks: iPhone App for On-the-Go Studying

image

Boundless Textbooks (free, $19.99 for in-app upgrade) is an app designed to help college students save money on textbooks and study on the go. Boundless covers more than 20 subjects, including biology, business, chemistry, physics, and sociology. Introductory textbooks are free, while full-course books are $19.99 each. Boundless is something I could have used in college when I spent hundreds of dollars on books every year.

The book I checked out was a psychology textbook, Discovering Psychology: The Science of Mind. I always find it a little difficult to read things on my iPhone because of the small screen, but the words were easy to see and nicely formatted.

The start of the new school year used to mean crisp exercise books, newly sharpened pencils, and a graffiti-free pencil case. But these days, it involves a completely different type of preparation. The age of technology means you take notes on an iPad or laptop instead of with pen and paper, and rather than choosing a pencil case, you’re more likely to pick out a new iPhone cover or scour the App Store for useful apps. To save you a little time, we’ve scoured the web and compiled a list of our five favorite apps that will help you stay organized to become top of your class.

What I Played This Week—Cubemen 2, Solar Walk, Abducted Coming Soon

image

I have a couple of great apps for review this week and some news about an exciting new 3D action/adventure and puzzle-solving game coming soon, called Abducted.The first app I played this week was Cubemen 2 ($1.99). Cubemen is an engaging real-time strategy and tower-defense game that puts you in command of a squad of blocky soldiers. You can vector them to protect your base, or move them out to attack and destroy the enemy. The second app I played (though "playing" is not really the right word) this week, is the new, improved, and simply astounding Solar Walk ($2.99)! I used it to research earthly and extra-terrestrial satellites and to follow the beautiful and inspiring Cassini mission to Saturn!
