The weather is so beautiful in spring that you want to spend your spare time enjoying the great outdoors (forget the spring cleaning)! You may enjoy jogging, walking, camping or even a special visit to enjoy the natural splendors of a park. You don't have to be knowledgeable in flora and fauna, simply use Yosemite Tracks, Trees & Wildflowers as your tour guide in exploring what nature has to offer. With it, you can make your way through Yosemite Park like a true outdoorsman identifying tracks, scat and tell-tale signs of over 30 animals which inhabit the park. You will also learn to spot the native trees and over 220 glorious wildflowers that bloom in the park. In fact, there is a wealth of information included in this detailed guide that will open your eyes to natural beauty and wonders that you never even thought of before. Though the file is a trifle large, once installed you will not need an internet connection to use it (which comes in handy in areas of poor cell reception). Here is a breakdown of the eye-opening features of this helpful Yosemite nature guide app:

IDENTIFICATION OF ANIMAL TRACKS:
- A searchable database of 7 illustrated categories based on track size and shape. Includes only animals found in the park.
- View illustrated as well as multiple digital images on each animals tracks front and hind, gait pattern, and sign they leave behind.
- Listen to each animal’s vocalization.
- View a full color image of each animal in the wild.
- Identify animal scat by using illustrated examples of 5 categories on scat size and shape.
- View multiple images of each animals scat in the wild for comparison.
- Life List, Tracking Tips, Plaster Casting.

IDENTIFICATION OF TREES:
- A 14 question illustrated search, answer one or more questions and hit submit to see which trees match the characteristics you selected.
- See full color digital images of each trees leaf/needle, fruit or cone, profile and bark.
- Find a complete description of identifying characteristics for each tree.
- Create your own personal Life List to record the trees you’ve identified.
- View all Species, Scientific Names and Their Meanings, Tree Facts.

IDENTIFICATION OF WILDFLOWERS:
- A 15 question illustrated search. Answer one or more questions and submit your choices to see which flower you found.
- Illustrated drawings of each and every flower in the app, vital for comparing leaf position, leaf shape and the overall appearance of the flower for identification.
- A beautiful full color image of each flower.
- Create your personal Life List to record your discoveries.
- Learn about Flower Morphology, and what pollination is all about.
- Use a built in ruler for measurements.


Open the app and choose from one of four buttons: Tracks, Trees, Flowers and MyNature journal. If you tap Trees, for example, you will then get a further breakdown into: Trees With Leaves, Trees With Needles, View All Species, Life List and Other Info. If you tap Trees With Leaves, you will then be given a choice of: Search by 15 questions, or Display All. When you view all the species, you tap on the name of the item and are given an excellent description, as well as scientific name. Additionally, you can then utilize the scroll bar at the top of your screen to view Illustrations, Leaf, Fruit, Bark, Profile, Range and use a Ruler to measure the items you choose. Truly the amount of information is incredibly detailed, specific and so helpful!

Many of the other items listed above will break down in a similar way. Additionally, I found the Other Info tab to be very useful with Directions, fun Tree Facts, Scientific Names for your findings, Tree Morphology which explains the growth pattern of trees and a great Glossary. My first thought was that Yosemite Tracks, Trees & Wildflowers would be an ideal app for teachers to utilize in the classroom or on a nature walk. The hands-on information found here is infinitely easier to use than carrying a heavy text or guide book, and is well organized in structure. All ages will enjoy this lovely nature app.

COOL CONCLUSION: "Yosemite Tracks, Trees & Wildflowers allows you to learn about and enjoy the magical knowledge of forestry with dynamic details and graphics".

Tiki Lavalanche



Developer Quote: "A giant lavalanche came and destroyed the entire village. You have one last chance to make this right."
- COST: Free     - APP STORE STARS: 4-1/2
- Categories: Entertainment, Games, Native, Puzzle, Universal

It's TGIF time! One of the best ways to get ready for the weekend is to find a fun game that's lightly challenging (but not draining) which you can play on your device. Tiki Lavalanche fits the bill here with its exotic theme of the Tiki Gods. The story is that the Tiki Gods were unhappy with their people, and so they sent a lavalanche (read lava and avalanche) to punish their village. How can you stop this atrocity from occurring? You just have to follow one tiny rule! Do not allow the gold blocks to fall into the molten sea of lava. If you do, beware! The Tiki Gods will be on the warpath. Some of the entertaining features of this app are as follows:

- 75 levels of exciting block destroying and village saving fun!
- FREE level editor
- Ability to share levels with your friends via email!
- Beautiful Retina graphics!
- Game Center achievements

Your finger will be your balancing hero as you strive to right the blocks and prevent them from falling into the hot, orange lava. You must incinerate blocks to complete the puzzles. If the ads are distracting to you, purchase the in-app option to disable them. You may also use in-app purchase to unlock more packs. The graphics are really vivid and the fun is non-stop with Tiki Lavalanche.
COOL CONCLUSION: "Tiki Lavalanche is a game of balance and reflexes that forces you to keep the blocks exactly where you want."

Crackle



Developer Quote: "Finally, watch FREE movies on your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch."
- COST: Free     - APP STORE STARS: 3-1/2
- Categories: Entertainment, Movies, TV, Videos, Native

I rarely get a chance to watch TV more than a couple nights a week. That being said, I have missed so many excellent sitcoms and movies that I feel quite left out when friends are discussing them. Enter Crackle! Crackle is an awesome app that provides you with full-length movies and TV shows in all genres. You can view the list of shows at www.crackle.com or from within the app. The video quality is excellent, and so I have found myself enjoying one too many episodes of Seinfeld! I was pleased also that I did not have to endure any buffering problems. Here are some of the neat features of this TV and movie app:

- Full-length Hollywood movies (Da Vinci Code, Snatch, more)
- Lots of TV show episodes (Seinfeld, Married With Children, more)
- Genres including: action, comedy, crime, horror, thriller and sci-fi
- Optimized for both iPhone/iPod touch and iPad
- Browse Movies, TV, Originals, Collections and Genres - or search by keyword
- Build and manage your queue for viewing on the app or online at Crackle.com.
- Stream HQ video via 3G or Wi-Fi
- New movies and TV episodes added regularly
- Content available only in US, Canada, United Kingdom and Australia while content varies by territory

There are many ways to enjoy the viewing selection on Crackle. Open the app and you will see a slideshow of images from the Featured shows or movies. Tap the arrow under the pic and you'll get info on that show. You may tap Movies to view only those, or Shows. Tap Browse if you want a more comprehensive view (including Movies, Television, Originals, Genres, Collections) of what's on Crackle. Tap More to Search Crackle, Manager User Account, view My Queue, and peruse your Viewing History. The interface is easy to manage with large font for easy reading. This app does turn on GPS, so to prevent this go to your device Settings, Location Services, Crackle and turn off. The only other little grievance is the ads which play before each show. Still for free viewing fun, I can live with that. Crackle is a division of Sony Pictures Entertainment and offers quality movies that you can watch at your leisure.
COOL CONCLUSION: "Crackle is excellent free TV and movie entertainment from the comfort of your home on the iDevice of your choice."
--Date/Version: Released 4/18/11 - Version 1.2.5

Tips and Tricks for your Device [Sleep iPod]



PART of the fun of a high-end, tech device is learning all that it can do! Many of us love to explore and discover cool functions on our own, while others may prefer to read a manual.

Tips and Tricks For Your Device may teach you something new, or remind you of a neat function you've forgotten about!


TODAY'S TIP:

Question?
You can't fall asleep at night without all your fabulous songs playing in your ear. The thing is you don't want to fall asleep, forget to turn off your iPod music selection and have it running all night. How can you set your music to turn off at a specific time without using an external app?

Solution!
Actually, there's a little secret mechanism to solve this problem in your Clock icon setting. When you tap Timer, the hours and minutes dial will pop up, along with a text box providing the list of all your ring tones. At the very end of this list is a simple box on its own called Sleep iPod. Tap this and then tap Set so that you can now listen to your music for any length of time you choose and be confident that it will shut off the iPod at the chosen time.

Egg A Sketch



Developer Quote: "Draw on a 3-D spinning easter egg."

- COST:   Free  - APP STORE STARS: 3-1/2
- Categories: Art, Entertainment, Food, Holidays, Native, Universal


This may be your last chance to play with egg decoration for Easter day. Beautiful color is always an eye-opener, so watching the colorful designs come out of Egg A Sketch was a sure win for me. With this app, you get to spin the egg in order to draw beautiful spiral patterns in many dazzling colors. Hold the egg still to draw your egg masterpiece by hand so you can use your talent to create something really special. For an even better view of your artwork, rotate the egg in 3-D!

At the top of your display are several buttons. The palette with pencil icon at the top of the screen allows drawing designs on the egg, while the palette with egg icon lets you change the base color of your egg. Tap the X button to clear all previous designs. Change the direction of the rotation by tapping the curved arrow icon. At the bottom of the display, additional buttons control the direction of your egg spin.

Note that eggs can not be saved or e-mailed from within this app. However, the PRO version of Egg A Sketch (available for 99 cents) allows your hand designed eggs to be saved, copied and e-mailed. Therefore, basically this Easter egg app allows you to play with art creation and the spinning egg. If you really loved an egg design, you could always press the Power and Home buttons to save the picture and use editing software to cut out just the egg. One good use for this app is that you could prepare your own design to dye your actual home-made eggs!
COOL CONCLUSION: "Easter art work was never more colorful or high tech than with the spinning 3D Egg A Sketch!"

i Learn With Poko: Seasons and Weather! HD



Developer Quote: "This Science preschool educational app from the developers of PBS KIDS PLAY! lets kids 3 to 7 years old learn a lot about seasons, weather, even months and days of the week while playing the game and having fun!"

*PROMOS available-valid for 3 weeks after this date. E-mail cooliphoneapps1@gmail.com for one.*

- COST: $2.99    - APP STORE STARS: 5
- Categories: Books, Education, Elementary School, Entertainment, Games, iPad, Native, Preschool, Science


Preparing your child for school is one of the most important jobs of parents. There are many aspects to this...social interaction as well as the 3 R's (that being reading, writing, and 'rithmetic!) However, most folks forget about an equally important subject - Science! Science plays a huge role in school studies and testing throughout school years. Seasons and weather are beginning Science topics taught to young children in the classroom often using velcro cut-outs for figures and seasonal items. Why not start your child off right now learning these same things comfortably in their own home using i Learn With Poko: Seasons and Weather! HD on iPad?

This educational yet entertaining app for children aged 3 to 7 years old teaches about seasons and the type of weather to expect in each, how to dress accordingly, and what activities can be enjoyed seasonally. (Incidentally, this app is brought to you by the developers of the excellent PBS KIDS PLAY! and CBC Wonderworld online learning programs). i Learn With Poko: Seasons and Weather! HD is a colorful, cheery, and encouraging way to learn while steadfastly holding your child's attention.


Some of the enlightening features of this children's educational Science iPad app are as follows:

- High quality game designed for the iPad's large screen.

- Teaches like an educational book, plays like an engaging game.

- Teaches facts children should know about seasons and weather, along with clothes and activities adapted for each.

- Designed with child developmental psychologists and educators. Meets National Standards for Science teaching in Pre-K and Kindergarten.

- 3 levels of difficulty, increasing in complexity, and adapted to your child's progress per level.

- Preschooler friendly with audio clues and instructions. Reading skills are not necessary.

When you open the app, you will see 3 levels included which cover different topics. In Level 1 - Weather Conditions are discussed. In Level 2 - What to Wear for each situation is covered, and in Level 3 - Days of the week and suitable Activities are taught. Poko and Beebee are the little boy and girl who will lead your child easily through the functions of the app, along with some adorable pets and child-rendered scenery in muted colors. The familiar, child-like images instantly put your little one at ease, and are easy on the eyes. Let's take a look at how learning becomes a game in i Learn With Poko: Seasons and Weather! HD .


First of all, help Beebee locate for her photo album the pictures that denote specific weather conditions in Level 1. You will be asked to identify rain, clouds, snow and other such conditions. After that, in Level 2, try to assist Beebee and Poko to find the clothing and objects that do not match the weather of a particular day. In the final learning segment, Level 3, figure out all the things Poko has done recently based on the month and weather during that day. Your child must match the pictures together to complete each day. These are just a few of the age-appropriate and fun activities of this app.

The animation, sound effects and adorable characters in Seasons and Weather will engage children and keep them happily occupied learning for hours. When activities are answered correctly, your child will receive words of praise. Thus, their self-confidence will grow as will their familiarity with seasons, weather, days of the week and months.

Heidi Part I for iPad



Developer Quote: "This interactive picture-audio book with wonderful illustrations by Diana Kizlauskas will delight your children."

*PROMOS available-valid for 3 weeks after this date. E-mail us at cooliphoneapps1@gmail.com.*

- COST: $3.99     - APP STORE STARS: N/A
- Categories: Books, Education, Elementary School, Entertainment, Games, iPad, Native, Preschool


Perhaps you remember the books, movies or TV shows which had a great impact on you as a child. As an avid reader who could never enjoy enough stories (which cost my mother a pretty penny), I had a wonderful assortment of books. One of those which deeply touched me was the story of Heidi. You may remember Heidi as the young Swiss girl who was unhappily living with a strict and harsh aunt. She later went on to find joy and contentment with her reclusive Grandfather living in the Alps with his herd of goats.


To be quite exact, it was more than 130 years ago that the Swiss author, Johanna Spyri, wrote about Heidi's childhood and life. It was a story of humble beginnings, but grew to unparalleled popularity over time. Heidi Part I for iPad brings you the first of three sequels. In this segment, you will meet Heidi, an orphaned Swiss girl who is now living happily with her grandfather in a small hut in the mountains until one day unpleasant Aunt Dete takes her to Frankfurt to be a companion to a sickly young girl, Klara. The story of Swiss Heidi is filled with emotion, love, kindness, courage and goodness that is a lesson in character to all ages. Some of the endearing features of Heidi Part I for iPad are as follows:

- Professional narration in English or German
- Choose between 'Read to me' or 'I want to read myself
- Touch the people to make them speak (in the German app version, have them speak in Swiss Dialect or German)
- Touch animals and objects to hear them make sounds


The depiction of Swiss scenery is lovely, and the graphics are colorful and eye catching for little kids. Children will be mesmerized by the interaction between the members of this cast of characters. Most prominently throughout the story is the familiar sound of the tinkling bells around the neck of the goats. (The bells served to jingle loudly in case a goat was lost or hurt in a mountain crevice). Tap the animals and bits of scenery in order to hear specific identifying sounds, or the characters when you wish them to speak. This is a great story teaching morals and educating children in the culture of the Swiss. It is a classic story that I highly recommend. Fortunately, it all doesn't end here, and you will soon be able to continue with the next exciting sequel where you will discover all that is happening with Heidi in Frankfurt while she resides with Klara.



COOL CONCLUSION: "Heidi Part I for iPad is a charming story that will delight all ages with its beautiful scenery and loving characters."

Developer Quote: "Become the world number 1, and play as a goalkeeper in the follow-up to the hugely successful global smash, Flick Football!"

- COST: 99 cents    - APP STORE STARS: 4-1/2
- Categories: Entertainment, Games, Native, Sports

There are so many great sports and athletes to be obsessed about, but soccer happens to be one of my favorites. There's no denying the skill and cunning involved in getting the ball from one end of the field to the other. Watching the goal-keeper leap for the ball can sometimes be heart-stopping! Well, Flick Football Super Save will provide plenty of action to soccer fans.

Yes, you can sit in your armchair and no running is involved. Still, as the brilliant goal-keeper, you need great hand and eye reflexes to save the the shots! Just use your finger to manipulate the goalkeeper’s gloves so that you stop the ball from hitting the back of the net thus making a goal! You can even earn more points with Super, Mega and Ultra saves! Some of the action packed features of this soccer game app are as follows:

- 4 Game Modes:
3 LIVES - you've got three lives to get the biggest score
SUDDEN DEATH - how many can you save in a row?
BEND IT - this is a super hard level and the ball bends and curves
MULTI-BALL - 50 balls in a rapid-fire game of non-stop action

- Track your position in the global leaderboards and unlock all 21 achievements with Game Center.

In Flick Football Super Save, the mode you select depends on how active your fingers feel like being at any particular moment! 3 Lives does start fairly easy, but watch out as it progressively gets harder. Sudden Death is concentrated action, Bend It, is going to require some fancy finger moves while Multi-Ball is quick and tough! All the modes are excellent fun for any sport lover.

Winter is over, but frankly it's never too late to enjoy some spectacular snowboarding action. If winter sports are your preferred activities, then you'll find breathtaking action, bold graphics and incredible game-play in Snowboard Hero. This game is set amongst the snowy mountains and features four characters who compete against each other on six different tracks. Here you will find no easy bunny slopes, but skillful runs offering up twisted pistes, glacier tunnels and open alpine areas. It's all enough to make your hair stand on edge, just taking in the steep mountain vista.

With the aid of responsive tilt controls these winter characters will perform death defying tricks in the air, hurdling kickers, passing through gates, and racing to the finish. Of course, you will be able to collect the power-ups to get extra boost, trick bonus or cash. The fun begins when you customize your preferred character. Dress him jauntily from a great selection of jackets and pants. If you feel your characters are flagging in performance, then invest your cash to purchase new snowboards to enhance their sporting performance. Also, use that cash to pick up a few trendy new articles of clothing. Some of the action packed features of this fun snow boarding game app are as follows:

• High resolution support for retina display
• Four playable characters with six standard and four individual special tricks to unlock
• Individual boards and outfits for each character
• Six tracks with multiple runs in three different settings: Piste, halfpipe and open alpine area
