Topping the Free iPad charts this week is Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader. Based on the popular game show, this app promises hours of fun while testing your elementary school memory. The premise is simple; you are asked a series of questions from a variety of topics that span grades 1 through 5. Of course the questions are painfully simple, though you will need to search the smallest crevices of your memory to find the answers.

Trailers is an app made by Apple. The history of Apple in the movie business is an exciting story. While I won’t detail it here, know that Apple is heavily rooted in the movie business not only through its current cash power generator iTunes, but through Steve Job’s and Pixars rich history together. It’s only logical that Apple would provide an outlet to the world to see the latest and greatest movie trailers through their app simply entitled; Trailers.
Packing Pro is more than just a to-do list app. In fact, over the last few days I have used it to plan a full 10 day trip to Israel and can confidently say I do not think I will forget a single thing. With an easy to use interface, cloud syncing capability, and prebuilt trip scenarios, it’s never been easier to pack for a trip than while using Packing Pro.
Today we have a treat for you. It’s the kind of treat that will fast forward through a boring situation you may find yourself in – given you have your iPhone – or preferably iPad in hand. Here’s the premise – there is no premise. Your fingers are electrically charged machines, your iPad has colorfully charged particles who are attracted to your touch. Check out this review if you need a time passer that requires little thought, but lots of OoOhs and AaAhs.
Camera technology has come quiet a long way. The camera inside the newer iPhones is superb for its extremely compact nature. So too are the photos it takes, allowing for crystal clear text. With great hardware capability, it’s only natural progression to see a flood of apps being created to take advantage. Genius Scan does just that. This app will convert your paper documents to PDF using the iPhone’s camera and some savvy enhancement algorithms. To learn more how this gets done, read on for our full Genius Scan for iPhone review.

Join our Facebook Camera for iPhone review and see if it’s going to displace any of your current cameras.
Translation apps for the iPhone and iPad range in the hundreds. While I can’t say I’ve tried every single one, I have tried quite a few. iTranslate is the easiest, fastest, and most accurate of the bunch. iTranslate is simple as it is useful, allowing translation of multiple languages in both directions. Even better, instead of the most common method of translation input; typing a phrase, iTranslate allows speaking into your device to receive your delivered translation within seconds.
“Can you save that as a pdf and send it to me?” Heard this lately? I know I sure have and most people who do any kind of business on a computer would probably agree. Adobe Acrobat has become the standard in non-editable document sharing. Even though Apple famously banned flash player from its devices and led the march to its eventual demise, Adobe has still instated Acrobat as an iPad app. While many of the same functions can be performed through iBooks, Acrobate has a few hidden gems that may make it a worthwhile download – especially for free.
They’ve done it again! Chillingo – makers of some of the most popular games in the app store such as Cut the Rope and Angry Birds – have introduced a well made, addicting, and very fun game. Its title: Feed Me Oil. Feed Me Oil takes elements from a few popular games and mixes them together. We all remember one of the original iPad games, Enigmo, where your goal was to get droplets of water into a bucket of the same color by dragging elements onto the screen. Feed Me Oil employs that same premise – though a better made […]
