Transformers Rescue Bots Dino Island by Hasbro and PlayDate Digital – App Review

Transformers Rescue Bots Dino Island app menu

Transformers toys by Hasbro have been favorites of mine since I can remember, and my kids love them just as much. Transformers new characters for younger children are the Rescue Bots, which have rescue vehicle and dinosaur modes. All Autobots, no Decepticons here. I also loved the interactive story books with the accompanying record or cassette. You know, the ones that told you, “You’ll know it is time to turn the page when you hear the chimes ring like this…” Age reveal aside, the vinyl and tape interactive story books have now come back as apps for iPhone and iPad. Transformers Rescue Bots Dino Island by Hasbro and developer PlayDate Digital features Optimus Prime and Autobots Chase, Boulder, Heatwave and Blades. The Rescue Bots have been stolen away to a secret island by Colonel Quarry, and your child must help Professor Baranova and Frankie Green rescue them. PlayDate Digital interactive… read more

I am a mom of a Kindergartner, and he’s a great kid. And one thing I learned in this first year of formal schooling is that there is a lot to keep track of. I have to remember if Monday is PE day or music day, what days I volunteer at the school, whether he has his library book in his backpack or not, and all the little details that come from being a parent of a school-aged kid. So when I learned of a new app that might be able to help with all that I was intrigued. I mean, who wouldn’t want things like: Calendar to schedule all family events Email your lists to share your to dos to family members and others Organize your to-dos, manage and sync to your calendar so that you have peace of mind Access your to-do list anytime and anywhere from your… read more

Yahoo! Weather App For Android (Review) – Easy And Beautiful

Yahoo! Weather app for Android

I have generally not been a fan of weather apps. I’ve used the Weather.com app once in a while, and always ended up uninstalling it because I was not happy with the interface or the laggy response of the user interface. The new Yahoo! Weather app for Android devices changes things up a bit, though, and I’m keeping this one. I tested Yahoo! Weather on my Samsung Stratosphere II Android smartphone and a 7-inch Android tablet (Kindle Fire modded with custom bootloader, recovery, Google services and Go launcher). The Yahoo! Weather app, free in the Google Play store, is very easy to use and equally easy on the eyes. A lot of information is available on a single screen, which is really a nice change from apps which you have to click through multiple screens to find what you need.   Simply by swiping down on the main screen, you… read more
