I'm really having fun with Fun Box!

image

I just had to write again about how much fun I'm having with Social Fun Box. One of the things I didn't like about Facebook before is the limit on graphics I can use. I LOVE graphics!

Now, with Social Fun Box I can express myself with these cute images. I can put them on my own page, give gifts (for free!), and put some on my friends pages.

Here's my current FB page: 

Love this app! You can read my complete review of Social Fun Box HERE

This interesting article in TidBITs talks about Amazon's plans for its Kindle app for the iPad and links to this page on Amazon which gives some info. And best of all, the article points out that the Kindle Store has quite a few books available at no cost so that you can test the software. And it gives this link that shows all Kindle books costing $0.

Review: Boom Boxes by Hedgehog Lab

image

When I read the press release for Boom Boxes I thought “I’m not quite sure I get it”, so I asked the developers for a video.  They didn’t have one yet, so they sent me a promo code to try it instead.  I’m not sure how interested I would have been in the game after just watching a quick video, but after spending some time playing Boom Boxes, I’m so glad I got the opportunity to try it.  The game is fun, it’s challenging, and the developer clearly understands the concept of progression of difficulty.  If you’re looking for a good casual game that’s also challenging, look no further than Boom Boxes.

FileApp Pro: Get It While It's Free!

image

 

 I came across this app today when I when I was in Itunes. It's a file and document manager for the iPod Touch and iPhone. This seems to be a very feature rich app. It was released March 8th and is free for two weeks. The only feature I got to test at the moment was that I was able to connect via Wi-Fi (FTP) to my PC and transfer documents over to my Touch, which I think is pretty cool. It supports many file types. This is the first such app I have used like this so I can't wait to see what else it can do. While it's still free, download yourself a copy and try it out. You can check out the full specs on iTunes or at www.digidna.net. This is their Pro version of the software which is why there will be a price on it soon.

Who has a DVD Collection?? The iCollect Movie App keep Track!!

image

I have about 400 DVDs.  How do I keep track of them all?  I used to use my brain.  I still know every DVD that we have, but the other 5 members of the household have no clue what's on the shelf.  To solve that issue, I downloaded iCollect Movies from Hooked In Motion, LLC.  ($2.99)

Basically, grab your DVDs (or BluRays), Barcode Scan them, and Viola, you have a beautiful list of your collection.
