Anytime you find yourself waiting in a waiting room or have some time to kill on the bus, playing this new game will take you on a beautifully creative and colorful adventure that will make time fly. It is absolutely incredible what developer Imagination Apps has done with such a simple concept.

Cafe International Review - Fun for the whole family!

image

Solitaire for cafe addicts, with an offbeat 80s feel... That's my impression of Cafe International. Uh, how many restaurants or shops are seating lone international guests specifically by nationality or gender? None that I know of, but that really isn't the point. The point of Cafe International is good old pattern-matching fun with a multi-player twist that everyone can enjoy. It's also a great way to learn and recognize international flags.



Before installing that app get a Clueful!

image

iOS security-related apps are not very prevalent, but that should not lull you into thinking that the iOS ecosystem is ultimately secure. You should always be aware of what your apps are doing behind the scenes with your data. Previously on the App store and yanked, but now a free web app, Clueful, from anti-virus paragon BitDefender, tells you what the top apps are doing with your data. It might surprise you to know just how many seemingly innocuous apps are tracking your location, phoning home with vital device info, or worse. You can use Clueful to check if that popular free game or fart app that you can't live without is invading your calendar or contact info without good reason, or sending your data in the clear!

This is not simply an e-book of the classic fairy tale, but an all round experience that your children will enjoy every second of.

Best iPhone Apps, iPad Apps, iPod Touch Apps | iPhone Life Magazine

We review the Best iPhone Apps, iPad Apps, and iPod Touch Apps.  Whether you want to play a game (like Chillingham Manor), navigate with GPS, or discover new apps, you can easily get lost.  There are so many on the market and the number is increasing on a daily basis.  So where to begin?  The following examples are just a few of what is out there.

The Head Finder is one of the iPhone apps around. It is a task management or schedule management that helps you organize all the different things you have to do.  It has a very simple user interface and it seems they designed all the most common functions to be done with as little tapping and typing as possible which is a real time saver.  Several time management apps, in the past, have seemed to waste more time entering events and tasks into the app than you might save by being more organized.  With Head Finder you can have a new task entered in less than thirty seconds with their quick three tap process to create a reminder.

Another one of the best Iphone apps we've seen is The JumiCam. This app allows you to view streaming video from any web cam you want with ease.  It's easy to set up the software on your PC and then connect your phone to see what's going on at your house.  The JumiCam also works very well on either a 3G connection or WiFi. This app allows you to connect to as many different web cams as you want so you can monitor your entire house while you're away if you want.  It can really take the place of an entire security service if you wanted it to.  There are many ways to use this, from keeping an eye on a babysitter while you're out on a date to making sure your pet is safe at home while you're at work.

As the name describes, U.S. Traveller is made for travelers that call the United States their home and travel to countries outside their own. In opening the iPhone app, on the "Countries" tab, you are presented with a list of countries & their correlating flags. The added flags next to the country names are a nice touch, especially since most people can quickly find a country based on visual representation versus textual representation. You can travel from the U.S. to numerous countries - Chile, Argentina, Germany & Italy to name a few. This may not adequately prepare you for the countries you visit, but this will for sure help you. The amount of information and the ease of access it gives to people is incredibly invaluable.
