Little Engine That Could Review

image

 

The Little Engine That Could e-book features the original 1950’s art, but that’s about all I can say good about it. The animations are stilted and awkward, consisting of simple movements back and forth or objects flying across the screen. There is very little interactivity. All you can do is touch the images and listen to the sound effects or watch the objects wiggle.



This is what an e-book for kids should look like!

Ayars Animation is one of my favorite app developers. Their first app, Jack in the Beanstalk, is, to me, an example of what an e-book for kids should look and act like. It is fantastic. See my review of Jack in the Beanstalk for more info.



Last Minute Christmas Gift? Check out the iMainGoX

image

 

Are you looking for a last minute Christmas present? Then, check out the iMainGoX Portable Speaker. I can’t imagine anyone on your list who could not use this.

The iMainGoX works with iPhones, iPods, iPad, and Kindle, as well as most notebooks, portable gaming devices, and electric guitars! Most important, the sound is awesome — BIG bass and excellent amplification. Whether you listen to classical, country or the latest hits, you won’t be disappointed with the sound quality of this convenient, easy-to-carry device.



They just keep getting better - check out UPAD!

Every time I find another note pad app, I think it’s the best one. They just keep getting better and better. UPAD is now at the top of my list for note pads (other than if you need to record a meeting at the same time – for that I still like Soundnote and Notability – I like Sound Note for it’s simplicity; Notability has a few more bells and whistles).

For just taking notes or writing down an idea or list of things, UPAD is a dream! What’s unique about UPAD is the flexibility of this note pad.



Muzx Ultra Earphones - a contender for best earphones!

I received the Muzx Ultra earphones a day after I wrote a review of the V-Moda Vibrato, so I can’t write this review without comparing the Muzx Ultra with the V-Moda Vibrato.



Absolutely the best in sound and quality - V-Moda Vibrato Earphones

I absolutely love the sound and quality of the V-Moda Vibrato earphones.



Group Email with Attachments - Getting close to perfect!

 

With the Group Email with Attachments app, I can finally send emails to my groups AND include photos, videos, documents, current location information with map and address, audio clips, pasteboard content and contacts information.

I can send my email to a handpicked set of contacts, to a custom distribution list, or create a template for repeat messages (no more typing it over and over again!)

Seeking treasures and having fun with Treasure Seekers HD

I love adventure games, but only if the graphics are vivid and the sound effects are effective. I want to feel like I’m actually having the adventure and solving the puzzles.

Treasure Seekers: Visions of Gold HD does this for me. The graphics are awesome and the sound effects are lively and interesting. Water drips, cows moo, and clock chime. All this put me in the mood for a total immersion experience.

Right from the beginning, I enjoyed how the developers created a night scene where you have to use a flashlight to search for a way to turn the light on. That was fun! I also like the puzzle map – way cool!



The Real Mother Goose - interactive fun for kids!

I love classic literature and Mother Goose rhymes are one of my favorites. Now, you can read them to your kids in an interactive version! This makes them double the fun.
