App Review: Magic Math Free

Aside from monsters under my bed and the thought of acquiring chicken pox, no one can possibly take away my non-sense fear of math. Exaggeration aside, numbers seem to have that intimidating feature that sends chills down my spine whenever I’m faced with it. Not that I totally hate it, I just fear the exactness that it requires. But the numbers game is not that difficult after all, I have learned this the hard way though.

Of course, we’re all adept with the four basic mathematical operations. Using it daily, I think that we should all be hustlers when it comes to simple equations. Then again, when panic starts to creep in, even an elementary addition query can catch us off-guard. As for me who want to practice answering swiftly, mobile applications are a big help! Want to know my latest catch in this category? Then read more of this Android app review after the cut.

Easy A-B-Cs with Bubbo Pop!

Children in their early years are receptive to what their superiors (i.e parents, teachers, and siblings) are offering them. From simple gestures, habits, and even way of thinking, they can easily adapt and make the influence of others as their own. The same thing goes for educating them. Just like everybody else, repetition makes everything seem easier and it can also enhance one’s comprehension by creating patterns of what they see. Remembering the days when my mother cuddles up to me every single night, a booklet in hand, teaching me the alphabet in my own phase, I now see the essence of her continuous effort to make everything park in my brain. It was effective, though. Because I became a bookworm, then.

Since toddlers of today would prefer browsing through a smart phone rather than a book, then it might be better to teach them through an application instead! With this compelling application called Bubbo Pop, kids will have a tighter grasp on the alphabet in a jiffy! Take a look at this iOS app review to learn more about this “kiducational” software!

Cute Challenges with So Brainy!

Who says educational applications are solely made for the benefit of toddlers and schoolers? Admittedly, there is a great sum of mobile software that are developed for children but let’s not take out the possibility that these apps can catch the interest of adults—with kids or without. I guess the main reasons why grown-ups are getting hooked with applications that are supposed to be for the young ones can be blamed on three factors namely: the game play, user interface, and the level of difficulty. Sometimes, the more basic a game is, the more challenging it becomes. It’s like trying to tell yourself that you’re old enough to beat the easy questions not knowing that you’re just confirming how you’ve not been using your brain for a while. *wink*

Think that passing through algebra and trigonometry will have you excel in simple math and counting games? Then I dare you to play this cute, exciting, and time pressured application called So Brainy! Read more of this IOS app review to know more about this polished app after the cut.

iOS App Review: Animals Babies and Homes

One interesting chapter in a kid’s life is his instant inquisitiveness with the things that surround him. No matter how big or small an object is, or how serious or funny his question is, or if the idea he presented is real or superficial, a curious mind can never be stopped. Agree? I’ve been there or rather we’ve all been there so I think it’s no longer an issue if kids do act like that—naughty and full of queries.

On the bright side, I guess we should be happy that kids do ask us things even though they can’t fully comprehend it yet that much. From what I see it, I feel like it’s healthy because it only shows that they are eager to learn and expand their horizons, even at a very young age. Teaching them with educational stuff is way better than just letting them waste their time watching cartoons or playing video games, right?

Speaking of curiosity, one of the most asked questions by our dear young fellows refers to the wide species of the animal kingdom. Have you been in a situation wherein your kiddo suddenly asked you the query, “Where do animals live, Mom?” or “Do animals have kids too, Dad?”. Well, whether you have been there already or are having this eerie feeling that one of these days your child will pop those questions, then this is your lucky day. With Gil Weiss’s newest application, your little one’s queries will be easily answered. How? Through the use of the app. *Wink!*

iOS App Review: iTooch Elementary Christmas Edition

It’s Christmas! Yay! And aside from Santa Claus, presents, bonuses, 13th month pay, carols, and other tangible things related to this most-celebrated season, Christmas also means holidays and vacations! Agree? I love vacations. Who wouldn’t like it? I certainly believe that both young and adults look forward to this annual event.

During this Christmas season, it’s a reality that kids result to just hanging out with friends, playing computer games, or just boring themselves to sleep and eat the whole day. Admit it, you once did the same when you were still a kid. I think it’s just normal especially with kids since they get to do the stuff they really like during their no school days or vacations, like the Christmas season that is. And for moms and dads out there who would like their children to do something productive during these times are usually failures, if I may say. It’s natural, on vacations it’s really hard to encourage your kiddos to study their lessons, do household chores, or behave well since for them these days are their freedom days. Well, here’s a confession: I can attest to that because I’ve been like that when I was still younger. Oooppss!

But wait! If you are really itching to make your kids study their lessons without compromising their time for entertainment, today is your lucky day! (Aside from the fact that it’s not yet the end of the world—My apologies, I just want to say it.) As your Ms. Santa let me present to you my early Christmas present, my newfound app that is definitely worth of your and your children’s time. Who knows, this could be the mighty tool that you need to make them spend their time or vacation wisely. Without further ado, let me introduce to you .
