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. 



Review: Knife Toss by Crawl Space Games

image

C’mon, admit it… you’ve always wanted to run away and join the circus, haven’t you?  Well, okay, me neither, but the circus is still pretty cool.  Now, thanks to the game Knife Toss from Crawl Space Games you can experience two of the coolest parts of the circus at once – knife throwing and clowns.  Of course, depending on your aim the clown won’t be so happy, but it’s all good fun none the less.



Free app helps you be well and find an integrative medicine doctor

image

I've long been interested in how the ancient medical practice of Ayurveda can help a person be healthy, and have on occasion have consulted medical doctors who also have training in Ayurveda. This is called, as you may know, integrative medicine — doctors who combine a western approach to medicine (training as an M.D.) along with natural, holistic, and alternative therapies. If you'd like to find a practitioner of integrative medicine, this free app, called American College for Advancement in Medicine, helps you do so. You simply put in your Zip Code, and it gives you a list of doctors in your area.

Biblicious feels like a real game show - great fun!

image

Biblicious gives me the feeling that I’m participating in a real game show - I like that! The host sounds like the guy from Let's Make a Deal or one of those other game shows, which is really effective in setting the mood. 

The questions are fun - some easy and some challenging - so anyone with a bit of knowledge of the Bible should enjoy playing. And what a clever way to learn something new about the Bible. When you get a wrong answer, it gives you the scripture reference so you can look it up and learn more.  



iPhone - Music - Teaching

As a life-time educator I am always trying to find ways of having meaningful connections with my students. My iPhone + my weird cardboard speakers get used before class. Anyone can hook up their device to my speakers to play"their" music until class starts. If no one uses their machine then my iPhone collection of tunes gets used, This surprisingly simple action garners a lot of credibility in the classroom. Also my recyclable cardboard speakers have an edgy quality that helps.



Tweetsii — free app for location-based tweeting

image

I don't use Twitter that much, but I like the idea of Tweetsii. This newly released free app lets you see what people around you are tweeting. It also lets you "geo-tag" your tweets so that they're associated with a particular place, and you can add photos to the tweets. A wide range of other features include the ability to see what's trending nearby, see tweets from particular locations worldwide, and much more. Pretty amazing.
