We found a delightful and fun iPad app for children called Pete and Sneakers Bath and Bedtime Show. The developer and author of this interactive book app for children is Erin Davis. Erin is clearly a mother who understands what children need and enjoy with this well thought-out iPad app. I think you and your young children will love these two interesting penguins who are not short on personality. The graphics are eye-popping and the split-screen layout is great for two children to interact with.
If you think about it, in a child’s life bedtime and bath time are big events for the day. The author has brilliantly brought an important message to life with the Pete and Sneakers characters. These cute penguins encourage children to understand their own individuality and uniqueness and how similar tasks can be performed in different ways. For example, Pete prefers to approach basic bath and bedtime tasks more conservatively, while Sneakers’ routine is free-spirited and often just wacky. Pete and Sneakers embrace their differences while still having fun together which is such a positive lesson. Continue reading
Everyone enjoys the mystery of magicians and how entertaining the world of illusion can be. Levity Novelty has developed a spell binding iPad 2 app called Invisibility. It is not magic but you will want to play with this and entertain your friends with this riveting technology for your iPad 2. This iPad 2 app creates the illusion that the iPad 2 screen is transparent glass as if you can see straight through the iPad tablet.
This app uses the built in technologies of the iPad 2 by using a combination of the iPad 2 cameras, 3D gyroscope and accelerometers to create this mystery of illusion. Basically this iPad 2 app tracks the movement of your iPad and updates the display accordingly in order to keep the background image aligned as if the display were transparent. Plus, you can load up your own image and turn it into an endless Kaleidoscope-like browsable surface. The app also responds to perspective tilt and throws realistic shadows for some added bedazzlement. As you will see in the YouTube video (after the break) this iPad 2 app attempts to make the display of your iPad tablet “invisible” by calling up some clever back-camera wizardry with the design of this app. You will definitely want to take your iPad 2 along to the next party and corporate event you attend to have some fun and play with the minds of anyone a little intoxicated. ThisiPad 2 app is available on the app store for .99 cents. Continue reading
