Mother uses iPod touch to entertain child with special needs

Brandy Brow and daughter Jaeli


Brandy Brow and daughter JaeliWhat do you do? I'm a parent of seven children including my youngest, a two-year-old named Jaeli (pronounced Jay-lee), who is a special needs child with a rare chromosome disorder of X and 2.

Which device do you use? A 2nd generation iPod Touch. I plan to upgrade to a Verizon iPhone 4 when my AT&T contract expires. Eventually, I want to get Jaeli an iPad.

Review: Furballs! by Dan Russell-Pinson

image

I love match 3 games.  The problem is that so many developers start with the “tiles in a box” approach and try to figure out how they can improve on it.  These days, however, so many match 3 games exist that developers really need to start thinking outside of the box (didn’t see that one coming, did you?)  Thankfully, that’s exactly what Dan Russell-Pinson did when he designed Furballs (in space) for the iPhone.  The playing field is 360 degrees and constantly moving, and the path drawing technique adds a new perspective to the mechanics.  Oh, and did I mention there are things like comets and satellites to contend with?
