Review : Violet’s 12 Days of Christmas

violet12days

One of my favorite developers of children’s interactive storybooks for the iPad is My Black Dog Books, the makers of the Violet series. They’ve released some really great apps for children that my kids really enjoy, and each time they seem to find a way to pack more and more into their apps. This holiday season they’ve released another that while featuring the character from their Violet series, isn’t really in the same line as the predecessors. It’s still really great and my kids enjoyed it…

It’s called, “Violet’s 12 Days of Christmas”. Read on…

Quick Review : Simple Status for iPad/iPhone

simplestatus

With iOS 5 Apple has integrated Twitter into the OS. However, while users can send tweets simply and easily from within apps, there isn’t a real quick and simple way to post an update and move on. Most users are perfectly content with the speed of using a full-fledged app for updating their status, but others find that it takes just a bit too long to “get to it”.

That’s what Simple Status accomplishes.

Simple Status is a straightforward, does its thing and nothing else, app for the iPhone and iPad. It’s an easy and fast way to update your Facebook or Twitter status, or send an email crazy quick. Unlike launching the Twitter or Facebook or Mail apps on the device, Simple Status doesn’t have any new content to reload or update, it just opens, you enter your status and send it off. Read on…

Review : Toca Boca’s Toca Kitchen

tocabocakitchenlogo

It has gotten to the point that when my kids see and hear the opening logo sequence of any Toca Boca app they are instantly excited. That’s what happens when one creates so many great apps. Recognition. Once again Toca Boca have done just that with Toca Kitchen. This time around they have taken the “playing food/kitchen” aspect of being a kid and changed it around. Unlike the tea party app where kids set a table, eat, and pour tea and drinks, with this new app…kids cook food. Read on…

Review : Harold at the North Pole for iPad

haroldnorthpole

There are a few real paper books that made the transfer to the digital age of the iPad but failed, however there are also many that succeeded. Harold And The Purple Crayon is one that turned out to be great! Now the ever lovable Harold is back, and is visiting the North Pole.

Most children’s interactive books allow kids to move things around and place an emphasis on animations to get the point across. Harold is different. Children still interact with the content, but in this case it’s in an attempt to move the story along, not over stimulate, always allowing the actual content to be the main focus. Read on…
