SmyleSafe is more than an alternative to your main browser on your iOS device. It resides over the same principal but fills in some advanced parental control features which might be lacking from your iOS browser of choice. The developers of SmyleSafe have created this application so that it makes it easier for parents to monitor both what their children have been looking at and where they’ve been.

Cartoon Defense: Space Wars is an application with a stunning graphical interface in which the developer has put a lot of effort. This, regularly updated application, resides under the ‘Games’ category – however this isn’t one of those ‘pick up and play’ games. It is one of those that requires strategic thinking for a longer period of time. You are given a scenario upon the launch of this application after being greeted with a tutorial. The basic synopsis of this game is that there is a supposed peaceful planet called “Cartoon” and a peace and loving tribe called “White” who are residents on this interesting planet. Another tribe eventually comes along called “Gray” (a color which represents darker morals) who orders “White” to hand over planet “Cartoon”. After a heated discussion and irrational words from both sides “Gray” decide that they are to be notorious and attach the planet “Cartoon” in a bid to gain power of it and kick the “White” tribe off it. From this small synopsis you might be able to get a good flavor of what this game is like and whether it would suit your style. Read More

Interactivity is key when creating a teaching aid for young children. The iPad has revolutionized the way in which small children learn to read. CJ Educations have portrayed their best efforts into allowing BroadwayBarks application to be simplistic, but however at the same time exercise a child’s mind. BroadwayBarks is an application in which immediately after launch the user is presented with a screen to go straight to the book, this menu screen utilizes the full amount of space in the iPad’s screen but at the same time doesn’t appear to look cluttered.
