This free utility puts your AT&T Wireless account right at your fingertips. I installed this app thinking it was probably just a quick & easy way to pay my bill without having to log in on my home PC.

Summer - A Good Time for Review

image

Getting a child to review the multiplication tables over the summer is not an easy task. But, a game that your child can do while waiting for appointments or while you shop might make it easier. 24x7digital has developed an app called TimesTables (v. 1.1) for the iPhone or iPod Touch. The challenge is to see how many multiplication problems your child can get right in the fastest amount of time. 



Yahoo app adds voice search

image

The Yahoo! app for the iPhone is in the News category in iTunes, which is a bit odd, since the app does so many things. Most recently the company added voice search to its app, so that you can speak your queries. (Voice search has been available in Google Mobile App for some time.) In addition to offering search, Yahoo's app offers news, e-mail (Yahoo, Google, Hotmail, or AOL), status updates from Facebook, Twitter, and other social networks, RSS feeds, Yahoo Calendar, Address Book, and Messenger — and much more.



Review: Treasures Of Montezuma

image

The reality is that match 3 games - the genre made famous by the game Bejeweled - are currently a dime a dozen in the App Store.  So what does a developer need to do to make their take on the match 3 game stand out from the crowd?  I'd say that taking lessons from Treasures Of Montezuma would be a great start.  I have several of the hotly anticipated iDevice titles that have come out over the past couple of months sitting on my device, yet I find myself continually drawn to playing TOM instead.  To me that speaks to both the addictive nature of the genre and the creativity the designers employed to make TOM a match 3 experience unlike most others on the iDevice.



Game Review of Peggle for iPhone and touch

image

There are few games that can display an eye-rolling status message of “busting rad moves” during the loadup phase of the game and survive to tell about it, but Peggle might be able to get away with it. If one’s tongue stays firmly in one’s cheek while they play, that is. The graphics are cheerily cartoonish, and the gameplay is engaging and fun to match.

Finally, a recipe app that has it all. Recipes even the kids will eat, great quality photos, easy to follow directions, recipe box to save your favorites, & even a grocery list.



Old Fashioned Entertainment Updated!

image

Fireflies is an enjoyable app for both kids and adults alike. To get the maximum effect, I recommend you play with Fireflies in the dark. Reminiscent of childhoods past, you’ll soon be immersed in the sound of crickets chirping their nighttime serenades as you gently reach out to capture the fireflies, flickering in and out between the cattails. This is relaxing entertainment. Your kids will love it, too!



Book Shopping is More Fun with xLibris

image

I love books. The problem is I forget which books I have. Consequently, on too many occasions, I’ve bought the same book more than once. But not any more!

Now, I have xLibris by Option-X (v 1.2.1) installed on my iPhone. xLibris is a full-featured book database that sorts my books by title or author. I can easily search my book database while at the bookstore, and no more duplicates!
