Good Great news if you’ve been looking to score an Apple iPad at a great price, Apple has slashed prices on refurbished iPads further, making sweet deals even sweeter. (more…)
Toontastic is one of the first apps I recommend to teachers and parents when they first get an iPad. It’s a great app for allowing users to create and animate their own cartoons. It’s simple enough for young kids, but easily enjoyable for adults as well. (more…)
Repair Labs has put the iPad mini’s screen under a microscope, comparing it to those of the iPad 4th Gen with Retina Display, and an iPad 2. As could be expected, the iPad with Retina Display’s screen has pixels that are physically only 2/3rds the size of the iPad mini’s. (more…)
It’s one of the most emailed questions I’ve received recently. “Should I upgrade from the 3rd Generation iPad to the 4th?” Many people are asking this question and it’s time to look into it a little bit…
During the most recent Apple announcement everyone was really waiting for the iPad mini. That was supposed to be the star of the show, and in a way it was. However, Apple unleashed a slew of upgrades for their product lines including the iMac and MacBooks. One smaller announcement that has some people up in arms though is the release of the 4th generation iPad. (more…)
For the traveler who carries an iPad everywhere they go there are many options to do so and protect your device. One could use a case, a screen protector, or both. Some users go naked and simply stick the iPad in a bag designed to hold the iPad. However, some people like a case that is more of a sleeve than it is a case, designed to hold the device, but not to be used with the device in place. The Bookase is such a case. (more…)
I review a good number of iPad cases, but in the end I typically like to keep my devices without a case. That’s just my preference. However, I do enjoy the Smart Cover that Apple sells, and I am always eager to check out “back cases” for the iPad that allow use of it. The Spigen SGP Ultra Thin Case Series is just such a case. I’ve taken a ride with the Crystal Clear version, here’s what I found. (more…)
If you’re an iOS or Mac developer just creating a great app isn’t enough. The great app you have developed and are ready to unleash upon the App Store and its users needs to pull people in. It needs something more than a catchy name and a good description. It needs an icon or logo that not only speaks to what the app does, but is also pleasing to look at and stands out. Sometimes developers can tackle this on their own…but other times they need to turn elsewhere to get just the right look. (more…)
Last year Netflix released a feature called “Just For Kids”, which allowed parents to quickly and easily find shows and movies that were appropriate for children, and for children to have a place they could explore more freely.
Today Netflix has released, “Just For Kids” on the iPad. This allows kids to have the same access I mentioned above, only on the iPad. For now however it’s only available on 2nd and 3rd Generation iPad models. Kids can choose different characters and find shows to watch based on them, or based on themes…but it’s all “kid-friendly”, and it’s easy to use. My kids will have a much easier time hogging bandwidth at our house now I’m sure! (more…)
Rounds: Franklin Frog is a life science app for kids, from a frogs perspective. It allows children to involve themselves in each stage of a frog’s life and learn all about the life cycle and more.
The apps lets kids participate and take part in all things frogs do, from eating and hopping, to having baby tadpoles that turn into frogs. There are plenty of facts and information spread throughout the app to make it educational, but its all done in a fun way that my kids found very entertaining. (more…)
