While not an app, Apple's Mobile me allows for the tracking of any lost/stolen Apple Ipad/Ipod/Iphone. Once the program is setup on the device, the user can track it remotely on any computer with the ability to lock and display messages on the screen. I have been a victim of theft when someone stole my Ipad out of my room at school, and having this program would have possibly helped me catch the culprit. Setting up the program is extremely easy, directions can be found here:
While this app is not something you will use very often, it is somewhat interesting (and disturbing) to see how close registered sex offenders live to your address. However, it could become very useful when looking for a new place to live, especially if you have kids. The app itself if fairly simple, setup like a Google maps app but with small red pins marking each sex offenders address. Upon selecting an address, and information box will pop up and gives a brief description of the charges against this particular individual, and a picture as well. Best of all, the app is free!
If you have an app you would like to share, just use the comment option on any of my posts and I'll make sure to add it to the main page. Thanks!
Available for both the Iphone and Ipad, Scramble is definitely one of my favorite games I have found so far. Basically, it is a digital version of Boggle and can be played with up to 4 players in the Pass-and-Play option. Best of all, it's free! Check it out.
Like many other people, Apple's App store can be somewhat overwhelming with the shear number of apps available. As the owner of an Ipad and Ipod, searching for new apps is almost a daily adventure for me. However, the reviews associated with some apps are often less than helpful. The purpose of this blog is to help people (including myself), find apps that are useful and interesting while also letting people know which apps are not worth downloaded to avoid wasted time/money. My idea for this blog is for visitors to post comments on apps they have had positive experiences simply to help people when searching for new apps. So, if you have a great app that you would like to share, feel free to post it.
