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 .

Nikki UP2U: A dressing story

Little girls—they all have their dreams of playing dress up. Every little girl that I have encountered has taken to playing dress up as if they are already priming into the spiffy world of womanhood. That’s the weird thing about being a kid. They use the fashionably moulded shapes and perks of Barbie dolls and Bratz just so they can envision how they want their lives in the period of adolescence to be. Some kids even sleep with their paper dolls beside them, y’know. Kids.

Since playing dress up for dolls is a thing of adulthood anticipation mixed with curious innocence, the world of technology didn’t miss out on supplying the juvenile enjoyment of kids and in-denial-kids-at-heart. Pape Studio released an iOS application called Nikki UP2U that will cater to the modish desires of kids, or even mommas with three kids, who have a fondness for dressing up dolls and doll-like figures to the nines! With Nikki UP2U installed on your iOS devices, dressing the characters in the chicest trend du jour is all UP2U! Read more

Make Colorful Notes with!

Post-its and notepads exist not only because they hold important notes for people who love to write on them, but also because they hold dreams of people who believe that jotting down they desired future on notepads can help them acquire those dreams little by little.

She told me that she goes by the classic Laws of Attraction even though she has not attracted a single bit of her aspirations. Some people collect notepads just for the fun of it.

Timeline Eons: An Extensive Timeline of the World and Beyond

“Knowledge is power.” As scientists and experts continue to probe and look for answers, we are gifted with new knowledge that may or may not explain the unknown epoch and the history of ever. With the help from the expanding technology, the postmortem that is generally centered on the evolution and the beginning of mankind is becoming more vague and confusing by the day. While the answers to the truth is still few and far in between, a little compiled background of the geological era can serve us, humans, well. To know about what could happen eons ago might be useful to us in future analysis.
