Book Love

I have been following Melissa Taylor's ImaginationSoup for a long time.  She has tons of creative ideas in getting kids to read.  Now she condensed all her experience and knowledge on helping kids read into this wonderful book Book Love: Help Your Child Grow from Reluctant to Enthusiastic Reader.  It is a Kindle book, but you don't need Kindle device to read Kindle books.  You can read Kindle book on almost any device: iPhone, iPAD, Android phone and tablets, or… Read More

Timeline Eons

Timeline Eons is an app that displays major events throughout the history of the world.  All events are organized along the timeline.  You can choose to zoom the timeline to see more events during a certain time period.  Most events have pictures.  Tap on each single event will bring up more detailed information of that event.  If you are connected to the internet, the app will also bring up the auto search results of the event in Google or Wikipedia… Read More

Peterson Birds

After iGameMom introduced the Audubon Birds App, I started paying attention to other bird apps.  Thanks for Nigel Hall’s note, I learned about Peterson Feeder Birds of North America.  It is a FREE app about feeder birds.  Similar to Audubon Birds, you will be able to look up birds with pictures, locations (state), nest, etc.  What is different is this app’s focus on feeder birds, ie., the birds you see in your backyards.  It covers 160 common North American backyard… Read More

Rainbow Sentences

I had readers asking about Rainbow Sentences App.  I contacted Mobile Education Tools, who developed the app, and received a copy of the app.  After reviewing the app, I was really impressed by the design – no matter it is the picture, or the choices of the sentences, or the lesson style. Rainbow Sentences’ target users are kids who have difficulties following traditional teaching methods, and those (kids or adults) who are learning English as a second language.  It is… Read More

How to Manage In-App Purchase? post image

While looking at the App store Top Grossing list, I was quite surprised to see Dragon Vale was at the top as #1.  I was surprised because Dragon Vale is a free app.  In fact the top 5 grossing apps are all free apps.  How can they make money?  Obviously, these free apps get money through In-App Purchase.  This sends a strong message to all app buyers, especially all the parents: free apps are NOT free, be aware of the In-App… Read More

Stack the Countries – Fun Geography App post image

Stack the Countries is the extension to Stack the States app.  To learn about Stack the States, please go to iGameMom’s earlier review. The basic game play of Stack the Countries is similar to Stack the States.  Instead of facts about US states, Stack the Countries asks geography questions about countries around the world: capital cities, bordering countries, flag, landmark, location...  When you answer a question correctly, you win a country piece to put in your stack.  When the stacked… Read More
