image

The start of the new school year used to mean crisp exercise books, newly sharpened pencils, and a graffiti-free pencil case. But these days, it involves a completely different type of preparation. The age of technology means you take notes on an iPad or laptop instead of with pen and paper, and rather than choosing a pencil case, you’re more likely to pick out a new iPhone cover or scour the App Store for useful apps. To save you a little time, we’ve scoured the web and compiled a list of our five favorite apps that will help you stay organized to become top of your class.

For others, it is a necessity due to a medical condition or developmental delay. No matter the reason, there are apps out there that help teach little ones sign language. The icing on the cake is that all of these apps are free, which makes them accessible to anyone with an iPhone. 



What I Played This Week—Cubemen 2, Solar Walk, Abducted Coming Soon

image

I have a couple of great apps for review this week and some news about an exciting new 3D action/adventure and puzzle-solving game coming soon, called Abducted.The first app I played this week was Cubemen 2 ($1.99). Cubemen is an engaging real-time strategy and tower-defense game that puts you in command of a squad of blocky soldiers. You can vector them to protect your base, or move them out to attack and destroy the enemy. The second app I played (though "playing" is not really the right word) this week, is the new, improved, and simply astounding Solar Walk ($2.99)! I used it to research earthly and extra-terrestrial satellites and to follow the beautiful and inspiring Cassini mission to Saturn!
