Rok Out Concert

I spot this app on App Store yesterday.  It is a very interesting music app – no key boards, but random objects shaped like a square, a round button, a triangle.   To make music, you simply move different objects around, the interactions among the objects create different sound, thus a beautiful piece of music.  The movements of the objects follow some physics principles: if you throw an object towards a wall, it will bounce back.  If you swing an object… Read more

Over in the Jungle

Over in the Jungle, a rainforest rhyme by Dawn Productions is a reading, counting and sing-along interactive app. There’s so much packed in here, that you certainly get quite a bit of content for your dollar with this app!
