Hopscot for iPad

Screen Shot 2013-01-14 at 6.38.47 AMWe recently were searching for an alternative calendar for the iPad. We found and interesting calendar that was just updated a few days ago called HOPSCOT from the developer Denis Zakharov. You may be wondering why you’d consider another calendar since Apple has already created iCal.

In short, the Hopscot iPad app brings together the best of both worlds regarding your calendar and your address book. It is designed to help you manage your events and the people you want to assign to those events in compact format which we found easy to use. We like how the developer made the user interface easy to navigate and intuitive. Continue reading

Review: Shopping Pro for iPhone and iPad

Screen Shot 2013-01-07 at 10.01.27 AMWe just found a great new iPad app that was just released a few days ago. This app comes to you from the developer Quinn Genzel and the iPad app is called Shopping Pro (Grocery List). This is one of the best iPad apps for creating your digital grocery & shopping list.

I’ve used the iOS Reminders App but it lacks some of the functionality I wanted. Shopping Pro has a nice user interface and is really well thought out so it is easy to navigate on the fly. It also has a built-in iCloud auto-sync which allows multiple users to share, modify and shop whenever and wherever they are. Shopping Pro architecture is built on the foundation of Packing Pro, the #1-ranked travel app.(Screenshots after the break) Continue reading

Review: Kids Mosaic HD

We found a clever iPad app for children that brings those popular mosaic kits to the iPad tablet. This great new iPad app is even better in that it lets children have the mosaic experience without the mess and cleanup. This app is called Kids Mosaic HD and it involves replicating 36 different images or your child can just use this iPad app in a free play mode to come up with their own designs.

The Kids Mosaic HD app has two modes of play. We really liked the adventure mode which offers children the ability to select their own mosaic image from a collection and then recreate it using colored tiles. Nine tile pieces are used to create the pictures, they include a square, four triangles and four quadrants. With a tap and drag the tiles can be easily moved into twelve different colors. Once children have selected their mosaic image they can begin moving the pieces on the iPad tablet screen. A more advanced game method for older children can recreate the picture by counting the number of pieces and then move the tiles to the correct space they belong. Continue reading
