What Is Within Walking Distance?

If one of the parameters for finding a place to live is being close to shopping or theaters or parks, this is the app for you.

It scores potential neighborhoods for their 'walk score'. That is, what's within walking distance from your home.
Simply, it's called Walk Score (free).



Review: SmyleSafe: Web Filtering Software

image

The Internet can be an amazing resource of learning, information and knowledge. Ok, and let’s be honest, of time-wasting cute cat videos and heart-wrenching crawling across the finish line of an Ironman YouTube epics and blogs. But, like life, not everything on the Internet is cool, safe or appropriate for kids. Some of it is actually dangerous and harmful to their safety and well-being.  Since it’s nearly impossible to block kids from going online these days, what can you do to make sure that they are safe and you can monitor (hey, you are a parent) their activities (to a non-intrusive Moooooom or Daaadddd degree, of course) while they’re on the media phone.

Review: Scosche REALM On-Ear Headphones

image

I have been using Scosches’ new REALM On-Ear Headphones with tap LINE III (model # RH656md) for a few weeks. This model (along with a few others) came out last month and Scosche sent me a review sample to play with. This accessory is packaged and protected very well for shipment. With the headphones, you also receive a carry/protective pouch as well as an instruction booklet.



Review: Flight! by Armor Games

image

It amazes me how many budding engineers there were when I was growing up.  All those skilled kids that could take a piece of paper, shape it into something resembling a plane, and actually manage to fly it!  Personally, I wasn’t one of those kids. Thanks to Armor Games, however, I can be, at least on my iPod Touch.  There have been other games like this on the App Store, but this is the first one I’ve really latched on to.  I imagine it’s some combination of the quirky story, attainable and cool upgrades and the origami swans that give you bonus multipliers.



Introducing Horn: Phosphor and Zynga team up to produce an amazing game powered by Unreal Engine.

image

 

The latest game powered by the graphically stunning Unreal Engine just hit the App Store this week! Phosphor, producers of the best-selling and creepy-freaky Dark Meadow have joined forces with game industry giant Zynga, to produce Horn.

 

 

As you can see in the trailer below, Horn does not lack for visual impact. In fact this game seems as if it will be a guaranteed success. As you battle to free your world from the clutches of the Stone Monsters, this exciting looking, story-driven RPG zooms you into the action in a close-up, over the shoulder perspective when engaging in combat (a la Infinity Blade), and then zooms the camera angle back out, for third person adventuring and puzzle solving (a la Zelda) in its open world, rich and immersive gameplay.



The iPad mini: New design mockups are spot on, Unlike anything we envisioned.

image

 

Ah, now that's more like it! The blogosphere is abuzz today, with new and improved mockups of the speculated, soon-to-be-released iPad "mini".

 

 

These mockups show the new iPad looking more like an enlarged iPod touch, a device that can be held and even operated one-handed! This is a marked difference from previous design mockups which have the purported iPad mini looking more like a shrunken down iPad.

 

 

These redesigned concepts of the iPad mini reveal a device that is incredibly thin, incredibly light and rather than having the thick and bulky bezel of the iPad, these renderings show an iPad that for all intents and purposes, looks much more akin to a large iPhone "5".! Though we must be clear, this new iPad will of course, be running the iPad version of iOS, and will (may or may not) have the same aspect ratio as the current iPads. I love it and can only hope that IF indeed Apple does unveil an iPad mini on September 12th, that it will look something like these images.
