Today we're starting a giveaway for very popular app...Letter Reflex! Here is review of the Letter Reflex app. Finding it difficult to teach your kids letters? Or are you are looking to address letter-reversal issues in your kids? Both can be taken care of by Letter Reflex, the latest iPad app by the developers of Dexteria.  Letter Reflex – Premise  Letter Reflex offers two modes: Tilt It and Flip It.  Tilt It As the name suggests, Tilt It requires you to tilt the phone in different positions to complete the formation of certain letters.

Back in Time – iPad App Review

There’s a dearth of informative apps in the App Store. Or there used to be, because now we have stumbled upon Back in Time by Landka Apps, a fun-filled multimedia information app that is perfect for both kids and adults to spend time on during these trying times. It is basically an app version of an abridged encyclopedia. You know, the type that clicks with the new generation. Here’s a quick review of the app.  Back in Time – App Premise The basic concept of Back in Time is simple: providing information about everything i.e. everything in life. This can be anything from space to nature to animals. The upshot of Back in Time – which is also its biggest highlight – is that all the information it narrates never gets overwhelming. It follows a 24-hour cycle and fits all the information, trivia, and videos into that cycle. Do note that billions of years of history are stuffed into these cycles so that readers can understand better. So that you can both understand and retain what you just re

Doodler, What Color is Bear’s Underwear is an eBook app that aspires to teach toddlers and preschoolers how to identify colors. For starters, it does its job splendidly well. Premise of the App The agenda of the game-cum-app is to help a bear dress up. As a player, we are supposed to help him with different colored underwear which he tries out every day.
