Apps for Young Kids

p>Just because they’re designed for kids doesn’t mean any age can’t play them.

  • Monkey Flight- Monkey Filght is a very simple, fun game that many kids should like. I got this app to keep my nephew occupied and it kept his eyes glued to the screen.
  • Make a Princess-This application is a great app for young girls. My daughter asked for me to get her this app and ever since I bought it she can’t stop asking for my iPhone to play this game. This app lets you dress and design your own princess. This is the type of app that many young girls would like.
  • Ultradex- This app is a “pokedex” that has information on every pokemon. This app is good for kids because most kids like pokemon and the few that don’t would be interested  by looking at the pokemon.
  • Balloon Animals- This app is very simple, and interactive. To make the balloon you actually twist the balloon. The controls make the game feel as if you are physically making a balloon animal.
  • Cupcakes!- In this app you get

    to make and design cupcakes. It is very simple and kid oriented thanks to the simplicity of the app. Making and design cupcakes will keep your kids occupied. The idea of the app is great for kids.

Apps to Communicate with People

• Facebook- this mobile version of facebook does a pretty good job of emulating facebook.com http://prozilla.net/ which is a great way to connect with your peers.
• TextPlus- this app let’s you text phones and other devices for free for phone quality texting
• Bump- can save you a lot of time exchanging info in a fun interactive way. Bump let’s you exchange contact info as easy as bumping your iPhone to your friends iPhone and all info is swapped.
•Tweetie 2- a great way to stay up to date with your twitter profile.
•Skype-this app can save you a lot of money off your phone bill especially if you make a lot of long distance calls. This app let’s you make calls from your skype account which can be very useful as Skype is a very cheap service. The app is also free in the app store.

Apps to Help You Follow Your Favorite Sports

  • Espn Scorecenter- A great app to get the scores and some of the key stats for pretty much any sport.
  • Sportacular- Very similar to Espn Scorecenter. But in my opinion Sportacular is better for statistics but Espn is better for game scores.
  • NBA League Pass- This app is amazing, it lets you watch NBA games live from your iPhone or iPod touch. It also lets you watch highlights and replays of games from the night before. It’s has two major downsides though: you can’t watch your local team play at home because of a deal they have with the cable companies and it cost $10 which is still an improvement from the $40 at the beginning of the year. But if your device is jailbroken you can solve the local team problem by downloading an app called location spoofer. It tricks your iPod making it think you are somewhere else, letting you watch any team live.
  •  Chad Ochocinco Experience- This app is really funny. It lets you stay up to date with Chad Ochocinco and his latest media stunts. It also has some other good features such as his youtube channel or the what would ocho do Q and A section. It also lets you stay up to date on his twitter feed.
  • Espn Radio- This application lets you listen to almost any sporting event live from your device. It also lets you listen to some ESPN TV shows live from your device. Overall this is a really good app.
