iPad & iPhone - VOIP?

From Macrumors.com: SDK Changes Open Door to VOIP Over 3G Networks... iPad Phone Calls Possible? iCall announced today that Apple had made changes to iPhone SDK that makes Voice over IP (VOIP) over cellular networks possible. With the latest revisions Apple has made to the iPhone developer agreement and Software Development Kit, iCall for the iPhone and iPod Touch now enabled unrestricted free local and long distance calling over 3G data networks. iCall claims to be one of the few VoIP applications that has been permitted by Apple to operate on the iPhone platform. This allows users to make telephone calls over AT&T's 3G data network without using their plan's minutes.


3GS - Easy Good Night Daddy

Sometimes Daddys have to travel, but the kids want to say good night.

The old way to send a video involved a computer and cables and frustration.

Now, open the camera, slide to video. Viola - a quick video to email or text. I didn't even have to get out of the covers.

Good night, sweetie!!



AccuWeather App = Awesome

image

 


With all the crazy weather in Southern California lately, I have been having to check the radar constantly.

Will there be a break in the week-long rain long enough to pop out to the grocery or for the teen-age slackers to walk the dog? The answer is at my finger tips. This an extremely well-designed app, it has every possibly weather tool there is.

Best of all...FREE!!! I would pay for this!! A must have for everyone!!!

Bottom Line: Download!!



Serious Topic - Sex Offender Tracker

image

 


There are a lot of scary people in this world. The app, Sex Offender Search, helps point them out. Works just like the map app with a pre-loaded database of registered sex offenders. Data screen shows address, picture and convicted crime. The list feature shows the closest 100 to your input location. Knowledge is power. Know who is around you and who is near your kids. This is a must have app for all parents. Worth the $1.99 for peace of mind.



Post-Op App

Anyone know of a post-op app? The track medication, change dressings, etc? I'm using illnessTracker - but it's not perfect for after surgery. ~T. Posted from BlogPress - Please excuse the formatting.

 



Math Seeq - A Brain Boosting Game

image



I'm pretty smart (so I think)....Well, this game challenged me. My 9 year old had to remind me that 2 is a prime number.  

Math Seeq is a fun educational app that you can give to your kids to help them improve on their math skills or turn them into a code breaker - think (Audrey Tatou in DaVinci Code with the Fibonacci sequence). 

After selecting your game level, Math Seeq tells you what mathematical sequence you are following and gives you a hint on what the first one or two correct answers will be.  You have to find and tap the next correct number in the sequence from a bunch of numbers flying around the screen. (see the video below) The first level is pretty easy, starting out with sequential numbers; one, two, three etc.  You get to tap as many numbers in the sequence as possible during a set time period.  The first level then goes on to challenge you with all the sequences in the basic times tables; multiples of two, multiples of three and so on up through nine.

In the intermediate and expert levels, Math Seeq throws more complex sequences at you such as prime numbers, the fibonacci sequence, and things like "i squared minus i" (Huh?).  So, now you have to remember the equation and calculate the number in your head in order to find and tap it! (ask your kid, if you slept through it in high school - they are learning it in elementary school now!)

Math Seeq can challenge every age.  The grade schoolers can practice their times tables and the more complex stuff will challenge older kids and serve as a good refresher for us adults - trying to keep the brain exercised (Alzheimers!) For correct answers you get points, and you get additional time for each correct answer as well.  High scores are saved so you can keep track of your progress.  There are plenty of ways to practice your times tables out there, but here you have to hunt them down and tap them!  Math Seeq is fun to play and it's addictive!  

Sometimes the number you are looking for gets hidden behind another number and you have to wait for it to escape before you can nail it, but that just adds to the fun.

This is a nice app to keep kids busy and using their brain. It's also fun for a group to pass around and guess. (I'm usually right!!!)

You are give a small piece of a picture and you get 4 items to choose from.

I recommend this app for any age. $0.99

 



Dots Gloves - Use your iPhone in the Cold!!

image

Winter is here. Do you want to use your iPhone - but don't want to take off your gloves? Or did you drop and lose your stylus (again) because you can't grip it with gloves on?

We mothers no longer have to suffer through freezing cold soccer, football or laccrosse games and not be able to access our precious life line - the iPhone. (yes, it gets cold in California - sometimes it dips below 50!!!)
