I saw a video of this game being played on the iPad the other day and I wanted to try it out. For $1.99, I bought it for my iPad.  I have only played it a few times but I did want to share this information with you.

The free Karate Kid app includes five mini-games that test your Kung Fu virtues: courage, endurance, patience, perseverance, and will. You start out as a white belt and try to become a black belt and achieve martial arts mastery.



App prevents overdosing to save lives

image

Dr. Harvey Castro, blogger and Medical Editor for iPhone Life magazine, has created an app to prevent inadvertent over dosing from health professionals. IV MEDS has information on 45 intravenous medications and helps doctors and nurses calculate the doses for various concentrations. The app emphasizes that it's not a substitute for manual calculations by the health care provider, but rather serves as a valuable cross check. My personal feeling is that more of this kind of cross checking is needed, because one sometimes reads about patients who died as a result of getting the wrong dosage.



Color & Draw

Look no further to keep your kids (maybe yourself) entertained than to Color & Draw (.99) from Tipitap Apps.  Now, this app looks spectacular on the iPad, but I'm going to review it from the perspective of iPhone and iPod Touch because my colleague Cindy reviewed it in her blog, and it's awesome on the iPhone too!

When comparing Notes to Store with Pages on the iPad, Notes to Store is a viable alternative for some users.

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!

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

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.



Use your iPhone 3GS as a camera for your iPad

image

This is pretty cool. Gizmodo has a short article and video showing you how you can use your iPhone 3GS as a camera for your iPad. You put the Camera-A app ($0.99) on your iPad and the Camera-B app (free) on your iPhone. Then, via a Bluetooth connection, anything that your iPhone camera points at appears on your iPad screen. There's a button on the bottom of the iPad screen that you can touch to take a photo.



Sherlock Holmes - as much fun as a video rental for the same price

OK, if I could solve this game in less than 30 minutes, then it’s not a very hard game. As I’ve mentioned before, I’m not a big gamer.
