Items & Storage & Inventory Lite



Developer Quote: "Catalog the items you hold dear, associate them to categories and storage places."

- COST: Free     - APP STORE STARS: 3
- Categories: Lifestyle, Lists, Native, Productivity, Storage


Whether you live in a small apartment or a large house, keeping track of all your stuff can be difficult at best. If you have tools or art supplies, they could be buried in a garage, attic or under the bed. Heirlooms, souvenirs and knickknacks may be stored in boxes somewhere out of sight. Items & Storage & Inventory Lite helps keep you in the know of where your treasures are stored. Your items are listed by quantity and location in order of hierarchy. If you love to swap your items with neighbors, and then wonder where they disappeared, with Items & Storage, you will be able to make note of these very same things. Some of the useful features of this iPhone home inventory app are as follows:

- Catalog items: household objects, tools, goods, documents, collections, etc. with no limit on how many item categories can be entered. Each new object can be given a name, description, picture and quantity.

- Associate items to the categories you choose: clothes, computer hardware, files, tools, materials, etc.

- Make note of borrowed items: register the information (person, date) related to such transactions.

- Retrieve stored items easily: associate them with a storing place such as room, piece of furniture, drawer, suitcase, etc. Storing places can be organized on several hierarchical levels, like living room / cupboard / shelf / casket for example.

- Monitor item storage quantity level: utilize the setting of storage shortage alerts to quickly spot items which quantity is below the predetermined level.

- Export data: (regarding the objects as well as storing places) thanks to a CSV file (processed by spreadsheet programs) sent by e-mail, should you need to reuse these data on your computer.

- iStorage is delivered as a multilingual application and can be used either in English or French.

It would be really difficult to lose or misplace an item after utilizing the comprehensive options offered in Items & Storage. Having a hierarchy is a wonderful idea for listing items that may be in the box on the 3rd shelf of your bedroom closet, for example. Having the option to track what is lent out of the house is helpful as I have misplaced several items that way. I could see this app being very handy when moving into a new residence, and trying to put personal possessions away as quickly as possible. In such an event, it is easy to lose track of where you have placed an item. The Overview display tells you all the storage and other facts you need to know in a neat synopsis. Most importantly, being able to use this data on the PC via Export is useful for saving your valuable information to hard-drive. Know where your stuff is at all times!
COOL CONCLUSION "Items & Storage Inventory Lite is a great tool to keep you and your possessions organized no matter what your living circumstances."

225 Kid Outdoor Games-The Best Outdoor Game Ideas



Developer Quote: "All in one app for parents, teachers, kindergarden, birthdays and all other family events for children aged 2-16."



- COST: $1.99    - APP STORE STARS: N/A
- Categories: Elementary School, Entertainment, Games, High School, Lifestyle, Middle School, Native


Doesn't it sometimes seem that you are your kids' best friend, at least until they become teenagers? When they are little they want you to play on the floor, in the tent, have tea-parties or rodeos, and read to them. As they get a little older they want you to swim with them, play cards and do craft projects. It's all a parent can do to come up with ideas around the clock of fun activities to keep little ones busy! The same applies for teachers too! You have recess time and you want all the children to participate. What games can you use to keep everyone occupied, safe and happy at the same time?

You need not worry any more because 225 Kid Outdoor Games has put together an app that you might one day call YOUR best friend loaded with activities and outdoor game ideas for kids aged 2 through 16! The ingenious thing about 225 Kid Outdoor Games is that this list of innovative games is an unusual variety collected from all over the world. But wait..there's more! These games may be played without requiring any special equipment so you can play on the spur of the moment! Now, how's that for coming up with great games ideas with just the tap of an app!



The beauty of 225 Kid Outdoor Games is the wide age range (from preschool to teens) from which you can select many games that will appeal to kids with different personalities. Furthermore, these are games that more than likely your children have not even yet heard of much less played before. You know those long summer and winter holidays? Well, don't worry about what you're going to do to keep the kids entertained then! Here's the perfect opportunity to put this app to good use. Some of the fantastic and parent "life-saving" features of 225 Kid Outdoor Games are as follows:

- 225 well researched games from 83 countries displayed in a world map
- Coverflow of all the 225 games
- Sophisticated search function for main criteria
- Easy-to-understand rules
- Games grouped according to ages from toddler to school kid
- Duration: 3-15 minutes
- Languages: English, Spanish
- Detailed description of every game: picture, setup, age, duration, materials
- Bookmarks and playground
- Mailing function to share with friends and other parents
- Additional information on many games, e.g. a new way how to play it or similar games from other countries
- Highlight for kids: Shake it-function for a random game

Some of the continents from which 225 Kid Outdoor Games are collected are Africa, Asia, Europe, North America, Oceania and South America. Within those continents, games are carefully chosen from many popular cities.

This iPhone children's games app is geared for playing outdoors in the fresh air where children can stretch their limbs and clear their minds. Pick from the dial your selection of Age, Duration of game and Country of Origin. If you only have 7 minutes, pick a game that is short. If you have 8 year old children, then select that for the age group. Additionally, you can select if the game should require materials. I like the fact that many of the games are simple enough to understand with a quick read through. (Nothing puts me off more than games with lengthy or difficult instructions.) I love the huge age range because all children need your support and entertainment at one point or another. Most especially though, I appreciate the fact that children can learn cultures from other countries through playing games. Your children will be thrilled with fresh, new games and learning new skills while subconsciously working on their patience and ability to get along in side by side.

COOL CONCLUSION: "225 Kid Outdoor Games is a cornucopia of delight that every parent or teacher should have handy because you never know when you will need to pull a game out of your hat!"

Word Tracer-Learn Chinese



Developer Quote: "Word Tracer - Learn Chinese is an iPad app that is designed for people who wish to learn to write Chinese characters properly through tracing and feedback provided through the device."
 
- COST: $4.99    - APP STORE STARS: N/A
- Categories: Education, iPad, Languages, Native, Travel, Tools


We should never be content with only knowing one language. This happens to be the case very often in the United States, whereas in Europe or other countries you will find people being multi-lingual. Learning Chinese has now become a very big item, and is even featured on TV during the day for those who can watch. Additionally, it is featured online as high-school credit. I regret Chinese is one language I have not yet tackled, so was quite excited to see the app Word Tracer-Learn Chinese!

Being able to speak and understand a language is one thing. However, writing the symbols and phrases is totally another! When you learn certain languages, you must learn the writing also to be efficient. Word Tracer-Learn Chinese provides an easy and enjoyable way to learn Chinese characters by letting you trace 1,500 Chinese characters. Not only that, but you are also given the opportunity to write common phrases so you can actually make sense of those characters. This is much like how it was learning to write as a Kindergartner. I remember using big, tracing pads where I would move my pencil in the order designated on the lines to form letters. Eventually, after practicing over and over, I was able to write words with those letters!


You can use Word Tracer-Learn Chinese in two modes which are Practice Mode when you trace the letters, and Test Mode when you must test yourself afterwards to trace the letters correctly. Word Tracer-Learn Chinese uses an intelligent game engine which provides an enjoyable, precise and educational experience for all ages. Every character uses pinyin (which is the official system to transcribe Chinese characters into the Roman alphabet), audio recording, English meaning and common usages. Here are some of the comprehensive tools and features of this excellent Chinese writing educational iPad app:

- Practice Mode: Learn new characters or practice old ones

- Test Mode: Test the characters you learned and figure how to write the ones you haven't.

- Character List Screen: Display list of characters based on the category you have selected (frequency rank, stroke counts, pinyin, radical, common usage, lessons)

- Category button allows you to access the characters in many ways:
      • Frequency Rank
      • Stroke counts
      • Pinyin
      • Radical
      • Common Usage
      • Lessons

- Practice History: Records what you have practiced and lets you continue where you left off quickly.

- Smart gesture support: (1) Swipe right on any character in the Characters List screen to play the pronunciation. (2) Swipe up to see the meaning of any word in the word list.

- Show meaning button: Shows you the meaning of the character and its common usages.

- Auto advance on/off: Turn on/off the auto-advancing of the next character when you have traced a character successfully.

- Music on/off: Turn on/off the tracing sound and pinyin pronunciation.

- Show/hide Markers: Turn on/off the tracing markers.

- Play pinyin: Play the voice recording.


Open Word Tracer to find your choice of 2 modes-Practice or Test. If you do not know Chinese, as I didn't, you will want to begin with Practice Mode. Tap on a symbol box, and the fun begins! The symbol will be beautifully displayed in sharp color on your large iPad screen where you can easily trace it with your finger following the order of the numbers. The word meaning is listed also underneath.

If you tap the arrow next to the definition, a box will pop up with Detailed Info of phrases using that character. Tap the large character in this box, and you will hear the spoken sound. At the bottom of the screen are orange buttons which do the following: hide or display options, erase your lines so you can practice the symbol again, remove the numbers so you can write by memory, auto advance the pages of practice symbols, toggle the sound off and on, and hear the word/symbol spoken.


At any time, return to the 2 Modes screen, or to the list of all symbols by tapping the boxes on the top of the screen. Use handy swipe gestures on the list of Characters screen to hear the sound or get Detailed Info. I was impressed by all the helpful details and language tools incorporated into this app which worked smoothly and well. Let me say that you are being entertained and given a sense of pride as you work your way through the Chinese characters. I definitely recommend this app for all students and lovers of the Chinese language for its simplicity of use and thorough approach to learning.
COOL CONCLUSION: "Word Tracer-Learn Chinese is an excellent and highly enjoyable way to both learn to write Chinese and hear the spoken word."

iKnow Jamaican: Clean



Developer Quote: "Arguably one of the funniest translators and soundboards in the App Store...brings an extensive collection of over 100 English/Patois phrases right to your iPhone!"
 
- COST: Free (48 hours Only)     - APP STORE STARS: 4
- Categories: Entertainment, Jokes, Languages, Lifestyle, Native, Travel
On seeing this West Indian dialect app today, I knew that I had to bring its good humor to your attention. It's not an app with lots of content, bells and whistles, or high-powered gameplay. But it's pure fun to me with its hilarious rendition of Jamaican accents when transforming regular Anglo words or phrases into full-blown Jamaican dialect. You see I grew up in Jamaica, so I will always be a little bit homesick for that country and its friendly island folks. Hearing the native phrases that are actually quite accurate brings back the good old days to me! Some of the witty and comedic features of iKnow Jamaican: Clean are as follows:

-Over 100 original phrases (and growing)…that’s right, over 100
-Impress your friends using the translator, and play pranks on them using the soundboard
-Fully customizable options that allow you to arrange the order of each button
-Easily navigate through each page by swiping your finger across the screen
-Each button contains a head that wobbles every time you press it

You know, it's not as though Jamaican is a foreign language! In fact, this beautiful island was owned by the British until 1962. Still, its warm and outgoing natives developed their own special patois which is just a twist on regular English words. Some of the phrases of real, live, Jamaican translations are found in the following categories: Greetings, Travel, Essentials, Eating Out, Romance, Feelings and Opinions, Meeting People and more.

Your opening screen will display 4 buttons on the bottom labeled Translator, Sound, Instruction and Setting. The Translator is quite comical as it has both standard American/English speakers on the left and pure Jamaican dialect speakers on the right. Tap the American guy to hear the way he speaks (which sounds normal to most folks)! He may say, for instance, "It's a beautiful day!", yet when you tap the Jamaican, he will exclaim, "De day nice nuh true!" which is his way of expressing himself. It's quite funny going through all the phrases and hearing the Jamaican version, which again I will say is very accurate.

When you tap the Sound button of iKnow Jamaican: Clean , you will only see Jamaican heads which bobble as they speak their friendly phrases. The Soundboard lets you move phrases in the order you wish to make a non-stop, verifiable, Jamaican conversation! You will probably be in stitches as you make your way through this app, particularly if you've ever visited the islands and recognize some of the expressions. Whether or not you've visited this lovely island nation, you really must transform your speech into that of a true Jamaican with this entertaining and hilarious app.
COOL CONCLUSION: iKnow Jamaican: Clean is loaded with native phrases that are spoken true to life and loaded with the charm and humor of the islands!"

Photogram



Developer Quote: "Photogram provides special delivery of your photos via Email, Facebook and Twitter. Tell the story of your moments creatively and thoughtfully using multiple photos..."
- COST: Free    - APP STORE STARS: 4
- Categories: Entertainment, Lifestyle, Native, Photo Effect, Photos, Photography, Social Networking
Like everybody else, I spend a good deal of time on Facebook catching up with family and friends. I'm noticing these days that mostly the photos which are appearing are of young kids losing their front teeth, having birthday parties, or older teens graduating! In any event, pictures are popping up everywhere. How much more attractive, though, if you had a template type frame to include multiple photos with a description of whatever event you're bragging on! You can do this beautifully with Photogram. Select from dozens of unique themes designed by artists to showcase your special shots. Easily share the finished result via Email, Facebook or Twitter to recipients who will "ooohh" and "aaahh" over your artistic delivery. Some of the clever, photographic features of Photogram are as follows:

- Include up to four (4) photos in each Photogram to tell a story.
- Choose from dozens of independent artist created themes in our Theme Store to find the right one to complement your photos.
- Set up groups (like Family, Friends, etc.) for one-click sending to multiple people.
- Shop the in-app Theme Store to discover and support super talented independent artists.
- Use one easy process to share across three services: Email, Facebook and Twitter
- Create and share as many Photograms as you like, for free.
- Customize your Photograms with personalized messages and a profile photo.
- Crop and zoom photos to get the perfect result.

Open this photography and social networking iPhone app, and you will be taken through a brief but helpful tour of just how to create your photo stories, as well as a brief registration. 4 blank frames will be displayed in which you will insert your photos. Go ahead and crop or zoom to get the selection of your photos just the way you prefer. Select your favorite theme template, then your recipients. Tap Send, and your photos and background will be uploaded and sent while showing a beautiful, antiquated "odometer" of your progress. The finished photogram was easily made and quickly sent, however, a preview of the result is needed.

If you want to purchase additional themes, tap the Themes Store button on the bottom of the screen to see the many choices available. Tap Photogram to begin a new postcard, or Groups to set up email recipients of those to whom you always like to send your special photos. Photogram offers many top-in app purchases of other themes. However, this is the best time to download the app as the developer will add 30 more cool ones to your theme pack at no charge for a limited time only.

If you are wondering just who and how you can utilize Photogram, we'll give you a few ideas. Use it on vacation to make a virtual postcard, sports teams can brag on their accomplishments, parents may boast on all the special and cool things their kids are doing, teachers can put together special event classroom shots, hikers and nature lovers can make gorgeous displays of flora and fauna, beach lovers can display the allure of the ocean and so on. You don't need my imagination because I'm sure you've got plenty plans of your own to make your photo sharing a unique work of art!!
COOL CONCLUSION: "Photogram delivers your treasured photos to social networks and friends in a unique, personalized and colorful way!"

Any family has a hectic schedule keeping track of parents' work hours. Add to that the part-time work hours of your teens, and you've got quite a lot of calculation to do in making sure all these hours are recorded and paid correctly. Organization is the key here, and you may want to try an app such as My Shifts to help keep track of your time and pay. This app calculates your monthly gross salary too, and is useful for one user at a time.

My Shifts is simple to use and it will only take a few minutes to input the times you start and leave your job in real-time. Just slide your finger along the realistic 'card' swipe slot, or else input your time by using the date and time wheel. The same methods applies to checking out of your job. Some of the useful features of this work-related app are as follows:

- Use the Settings button to input personalized shift information such as morning, evening, or other shifts slots.

- View reports of your monthly work hours, the shifts you worked, any overtime hours you did, deducted break time, the number of work days per month, the gross salary, etc.

- Export your data (shifts records) to your mailbox as a table or as an excel table.

- 24h and 12h (am/pm) support.

Using My Shifts will simplify entering, recording and keeping track of your hours and pay. If you have no paper or pencil handy, simply slide your finger to record your comings and goings at your place of work. Set up your app by entering your Hourly Rate, Calculating Overtime if necessary, and Deducting Break Time if allowed. Enter your e-mail address to have reports mailed to yourself and toggle on or off the realistic sound of the time clock as you check in or out of work. Tap the clock icon at the bottom of the screen to verify what time your shift started, and how much time has elapsed since then. This fun app makes going to work actually quite enjoyable, and is very useful to boot!

COOL CONCLUSION: "Use My Shifts to accurately record your work hours, predict your monthly gross salary and provide you with reports as needed."

Lingo of the Day: unlock - If you've ever been told to buy an "unlocked" cell phone, unlocked means that it is recharged with prepaid cards instead of being on a monthly payment plan with a single carrier. This also means that the same cell phone can be used with carriers in other countries (assuming the frequency is the same) with a simple switch of the SIM card for under $40 in most cases.

Toddler Email



Developer Quote: "Toddler Email is a fun, faux nursery rhyme email system created just for toddlers and preschoolers."

- COST: 99 cents    - APP STORE STARS: N/A

We are always seeking to teach our children from as early an age as possible. It's only natural that you want them to be well educated, alert and confident with any knowledge they can gain. Turning to electronic devices is one of the greatest ways to absorb your little ones in educational tasks that teach while entertaining. The brilliant colors, sounds and music understandably captivate the mind of a child more than any paper book.

Toddler Email is a unique, educational toddler iPhone app that delights because it imitates the habits of parents who frequently check their email. I'm pretty sure that most adults will check their inbox at least a dozen times a day. Well, you know children soak up your habits like a sponge! Don't you think they are watching you read your email and seeing the pleasure you usually get when doing so? This is what Toddler Email brings to the table - the joy of children opening their own email that is perfectly suited to toddler minds! This educational app combines a modern approach to technology along with simplicity and the familiarity of nursery school rhymes that you grew up with as a child.

In a nutshell, nursery rhyme characters send your child emails with short tasks that absorb and teach them all sorts of new and fun activities. Kids are asked by each character (or Friend) to help them spell, find objects, count and match items. Little ones are all too delighted to get involved with adorable characters in solving these age-appropriate tasks. Let me point out that there are 14 characters (with more on the way), as well as lots of activities and interactions with each. Just a few of the characters include Little Bo Peep, the Muffin Man, Jack B. Nimble and Twinkle Star.



When your little one taps "Login" to Toddler Email, they will be asked to choose a weather symbol for the day which is then displayed in the email header, along with the current time and day, for the duration of play. Every email is randomly generated so that your child can play and replay a single email to their heart's content! Children can view their "Friends" list at any time to see which nursery rhyme characters have sent them emails. When tapped, each character recites aloud his or her corresponding classic rhyme! From that point, move on to opening each of the engaging and special emails! In Toddler Email, your little darlings will enjoy these child-appropriate features shown below:

- Play with 14 popular nursery rhyme characters
- Learn facts as each fun and simple e-mail teaches the basics of spelling, counting and memorization
- Memorize days of the week, and learn about weather and time
- Understand the basics of receiving, opening and closing email
- Recite familiar nursery rhymes and get to know those characters
- Enjoy age appropriate tasks from ages 1 - 7

First of all, I thought that the icon itself of Toddler Email was so cute with the happy face poking through the mail, and so I expected more of the same toddler suited stuff within the app. Sure enough, I was not disappointed! Jolly music starts you off as you are asked to tap Login to begin. A list of weather illustrations are displayed. Tap one and you'll hear the oh-so-famous and loved words, "You've got mail!" At this point you can either tap the Friends or Get Email buttons at the bottom of the screen. If you tap the Friends button, you will see all the adorable characters that are included in the app. These are the same nursery rhyme characters that present the mail to your child. Select from well-known friends such as Little Bo Peep, The Muffin Man, Little Piggy, Black Sheep, The Cow, Old King Cole, Old McDonald, A.Sheep, A.Muffin, Mr. Moon, Twinkle Star, Itsy Bitsy Spider, The Mouse and Jack B. Nimble. The characters are all brightly colored and humorously rendered. When you tap each of these Friends, they will recite their profile which is really the appropriate rhyme to fit each. I thought this was a perfect idea and would help familiarize little ones with each character. Perhaps the addition of a song or two would get those little voices singing too!


After reading all these great "profiles", I tapped Get Mail. At this point, I was dying to see what each mail held for me. (Yes, I love mail, whether it's for kids or myself!) I tapped Email from: A. Muffin and was requested to find a similar looking muffin. After tapping all the clouds and discovering various, luscious looking treats, I finally found the match to A. Muffin who spun around and presented himself happily! Simply "X" out of that Email to open another. I tapped mail from Little Piggy and was asked to count how many cute piggies were shown. Tap them one by one and Little Piggy will help you count. Under the group of piggies was a choice of 3 numbers so I tapped the one which corresponded to my final count. I was rewarded with "Great" and "Awesome" acknowledgements. Again, just "X" out of that Email to open yet another toddler surprise. At any time, you may tap the Friends button to play with the characters and hear their nursery rhymes. Other fun tasks include items such as: "I'm hiding, can you find me?", "Can you spell my word?" and "Can you count my items?"

What is notable about this app is that it has blended specific toddler learning with ease into tasks that every young child will feel comfortable completing. Humor, fun, childish voices, bright colors and familiar figures all lend their charm to the unique idea of emails that teach and entertain.

COOL CONCLUSION: "Toddler Email" is a captivating and unique learning toddler app which will engage little ones with its classic nursery rhyme charm while parents read their own mail!"
