This is how my kids described this game to me:  "Mom, it's really cool.  You're a cat with a Pop Tart body and you have to fly and catch things while you poop out rainbows." There you go people.  I don't really think that's what it's supposed to be but now that's all I think about when I look at this game.  There's not much to it other than … [Read more...]

I continue to use Qwiki, which I reviewed within the first few days of getting an iPad earlier in the year.  This app and website is like a Wikipedia for your iPad.  You can query just about anything and it'll bring back beautiful pictures and an audio tour of whatever you are looking for information about. Use it online if you don't have an iPad … [Read more...]

My nephew told us about this one.  There's not much to it but it's addicting, quick fun and free!  You're a treasure hunter being chased by crazy monkeys and you have to jump, slide and turn. And the best part, it's free!  Get Temple Run on the store. … [Read more...]

My iPad continues to follow me around the house, 6 weeks in.  Or maybe it's that I won't let it leave my hand.  Either way, where Whitney goes, the iPad goes and I continue to just love having it for so much more than just the "toy" I thought it would be. The last couple of weeks I've been featuring different apps I've been using for myself and … [Read more...]

Last week, I posted that I had gotten an iPad and shared what iPad apps we were using 48 hours into using it. Week Two with my iPad and I'm still loving it more than ever.  I'm not afraid to explore all sorts of different apps and I've installed and deleted many.  I tend to really rely on the ratings on the iTunes store - I find that that masses … [Read more...]

Don't laugh but I'm really feeling very, "how did I live without an iPad" now that I have one. I've been coveting the iPad since the first version was announced but have held off, assuming that it's just a "toy" that isn't a necessity. As I'm a total technology hound, I knew eventually I would end up with one.  The folks at Qwiki were gracious … [Read more...]
