Seuss, Seuss and more Seuss

image

Dr. Seuss on my iPhone was great, my son loved it but The Lorax ($2.99) on my iPad is out of this world!  This ebook is just more good stuff from Ocean House Media, see my previous post on The Cat In The Hat. The Lorax is the same well designed reader with a new story.

Color & Draw for the iPad

Tipitap Apps just released their Color & Draw app for the iPad. Now, there is lots more room to work. Even I managed to color a page!

 

App Features:

 



Amazing App Solar Walk allows you to explore the planets in detail!

image

 Just when I start to get bored with my iPod touch, a new app comes along that makes it like new again. The app in this case is Solar Walk from VITO. I have reviewed the amazing Star Walk previously here (a celestial viewing app), but was wondering when they would get round to adding 3-D planet exploration to the mix. There's a great (and free) PC app out there that does this called Celestia, and Google Earth also has some pretty awesome planet/star-gazing features.



Paints vs Adobe Ideas

image

I’m reviewing two apps for the iPod here because they are so close in terms of what they do they make for a good side by side comparison.



Color&Draw is NOT for Adults ONLY!

image

The Color&Draw website says it's an app for kids, but I'm here to tell you that it's for adults, too!



Give your kids a Witty Bit of music and alphabet learning

image

When I first started the Witty Bit app, the song went on and on and on. I couldn’t figure out how to get pass the first screen. Finally, I discovered you merely have to swipe to the next screen to get it to stop. Whew! 



iPad Education? How will the iPad be used in education?

 Here's are some interesting blog postings about the iPad and education:



Gain Worldly Knowledge with the World Countries App

image

Expand your mind while you search for facts on 260 countries from all 5 regions. Do you want to hear Belgium's National Anthem?  or France's?  Do you want to know what Kirbati's Flag look like?

Information is gathered from the CIA Factbook. Wikipedia and WikiTravel.  

 
Play memory games and play quizzes to test your new knowledge.
 
Help the kids with their homework. 
 
This is a fun, fact filled app that is well organized and beautifully designed.  I recommend this for everyone - young or old.
 
Bottom Line: Download now.  Worth much more than $0.99.  Get it before they realize that and raise the price!!
