Review: The Pete and Sneakers Bath and Bedtime Show

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

OnLive has jumped on the bandwagon with an interesting cloud-based solution that benefits from their experience as a provider of streaming gaming experience through their XBOX OnLive cloud gaming platform.

Review: Jukka Askare Game for iPad

During the holidays one of my favorite activities is to play games and read to my 4 year-old son. Even though we spent way to much money on toys he still tends to end up wanting to play games on my iPad 2 tablet. The good news is that after downloading many of the best iPad apps for children we found a really great classic wooden toy from Finland that was just released. It is called Jukka Askare and has been played by Scandanavian children for nearly 85 years.

What gives me joy is to see my 4 year-old enjoying this wonderful unique interactive game. This app is educational also and teaches 3 to 4 year-olds shapes, sizes and geometry as they attempt to fit different shapes into matching holes. The developers have cleverly integrated real-life sounds and graphically pleasing animations in Jukka Askare for iPad. The Jukka Askare app can develop your child’s spatial recognition and eye-hand coordination in this fun iPad app game.

This iPad 2 app emulates a 3-D environment as your child develops fine motor skills moving the colorful pieces around the iPad display with their finger. This game is completely international and does not use language and my son just intuitively knew what this game was about as soon as I tapped on the app and it opened up.

Review: Noisepad iPad App

It was a big Christmas around my house this week with Apple products. The new iPad 2 tablet gifts were a hit with my wife and son. My son is a musician and he found this newly released iPad best app he’s been playing around with. This app is called Noisepad and is a very cool musician’s app for parties and live performances where you want to get the people on their feet with these beats.

The Noisepad iPad 2 app is a drum computer packed with the latest samples, beats and vocals from A-list artists and producers. The iPhonk developers(a devision of MediaGROE) have created an innovative easy-to-use app that has lots of bells and whistles. iPhonk has cleverly built realtime effects into this app that includes pitch, delay, cut-off, phase, reverb and bit-crush. You can also easily upload your own samples to the custom sound banks of the Noisepad app via iTunes. (video demo and screenshots after break) Continue reading

Adobe EchoSign for iPad Just Released

Adobe has released one of my favorite productivity tools, Echosign, today for the iPad.

This new iPad app is available now, and now offers iPad users the ability to securely digitally sign your documents with a legally binding e-signature right on the iPad 2 tablet. This just took a great idea and made it even easier to send and sign digital documents.

We like how you can easily use your Echosign account within this new iPad app. Once you login to your EchoSign account you be able to search and send from the EchoSign library. Adobe wisely built-in real-time status updates so you can tracking the progress of the document. (screenshots after the break) Continue reading
