Review: iAM Stylus

image

 

The owners of the iAM stylus contacted me to see if I was interested in reviewing their new stylus called the iAM Stylus. I am glad they did as I am finding it’s a nice accessory, and one that is also very unique on the market. This is a brand new accessory that just came out. (Note: my photos are at the end).

The stylus is made of aluminum. It’s a very solid and tough design and very light weight. Even though it’s light, it does not feel like a lot of those cheap styluses on the market. This was one of the reasons they created this product because they could not find a stylus that was quality made and also would fulfill all of their needs.



Sprint iPhone 4S now $149; iOS devices to get new dock connector

Lots of rumors and changes ahead of the refresh of Apple's iOS lineup, expected to start with an announcement on September 12. Sprint has lowered the price of its iPhone 4S from $199 to $149 in anticipation of the launch of iPhone 5 — a move that's typical in advance of a new model in order to clear out inventory.

More leaked photos: iPad mini and new nano-SIM tray for iPhone 5

image

Is this simply part of Apple's marketing: a strategic leaking of images to generate buzz? Anyway, it's fun being in this stage in the run-up to the next product launch from Apple. The first "iPad mini" photos have appeared, but as the website M.I.C. Gadget notes in its post, there's zero authentication. Still, the site apparently finds them credible. Of note is the fact that there's no rear-facing camera.



GradeBook Pro - Teachers will love this!

image

 

I can’t begin to list all the features of this app on this review, so please go to the iTunes store to see them all. However, I can tell you what I like about GradeBook Pro. Although it's a full-featured grade book, it’s amazingly simple to use. Within a few minutes from downloading the app, I had created a class, added three “students,” created some assignments, set up weighted grades, and taken attendance. For an app this complicated, I was amazed at how simple it is to use.



Algebra Touch is Genius!

image

Algebra Touch is the perfect app for visual and kinesthetic learners. Here’s how it works. There are three stages: Explain, Practice and My Problems. In the Explain stage, you can either work your way through the lessons in order or select a lesson at random. Once you have chosen your lesson, you scroll through the instructions at the bottom of the screen and tap out your answers at the top. If you make a mistake, the problem won’t solve. If you’re right, you see the problem solve on the screen.



Drawing review roundup - Set Paint Go, Grafio, Illustrator and tips for an aging iPad

image

I recently reviewed a new stylus (see GoSmart review here), so figured I would swing back and repost on some of the drawing apps I used in the review. I also wanted to cover a unique "self-drawing" app created by Eric Hayes (an MIT math wiz and artist) called Set Paint Go. In this drawing roundup: Grafio, a very powerful diagramming and drawing toolset with a highly capable Lite version; Illustrator, another simple editor that can help you produce great looking graphics in like 2 seconds. I also have a few quick tips for when app crashes occur on older hardware, since I have been having some issues with an aging gadget...



Easy Words iPhone App Review

image

Charlemagne said, "To have another language is to possess a second soul." Now you can have the ability to possess that second soul through an app available in the palm of your hands.  Learning a second language requires constant maintenance and practice.  The best way to learn a second (or third or fourth!) language is through repetition and continual exposure to the language.  That is the idea behind the application called Easy Words.
