Being a new parent is an amazing experience. There are dozens of things to do and take care of during those first precious, hectic days, including your band new bundle of joy. Let bambinapp, an iPhone app from developer des p’tits bonheurs, take one item off your list in a matter of moments. Create custom birth announcements as special as your little one with a few simple clicks with this handy iOS app.

Features:

Having helped my sister in law prepare birth announcements about a year ago, I felt up to the task of writing an iPhone app review on bambinapp. There are a few basic things everyone will want to include in a birth announcement, such as the newborn’s name, date of birth, length, weight and parents’ names. All of those features are built in to bambinapp, it’s the extras that really make this iPhone app shine.

Additional features include the ability to select from 30 different birth announcement templates. Templates range in style from bright and vibrant to classy and sophisticated. There are even templates for twins. There is also an editable text field on each template where you can use the standard announcement listed in the app or enter a custom greeting. Some templates support importing a photo right into the app.

All of those great features are in addition to the ability to share birth announcements from the app. Share your quick, easy announcement via e-mail, Facebook or save it to your phone’s camera roll to send as a message, print or transfer to a computer.

Koder is the King Kong of Coding Apps

Koder - iCodeLabs

Koder for iPad

Reviewed by Luke Patrick

 

 

Price: $5.99
Rating

Koder iPad app, by developer iCodeLabs, attempts to fill a code-sized void in the AppStore, offering a full-service code writing utensil aimed at industry professionals. The iPad app has a lot to offer any, and though it’s a tad expensive it’s certainly worth the ease of use and portability.

Functionality

If you’re a programmer—whether you’re a weekend warrior or java-soaked cubicle-rat—then you already have a pretty good idea of what Koder has to offer. The iPad app sports a smooth code-editing interface from which you’re free to slap and dash lines as you please. Koder is more or less a glorified text editor to everyone else, but with one key difference: Syntax highlighting. The app supports just about every code language you can think of (Java, HTML, C++, Perl and even ActionScript3) and will gleefully highlight strings in your work zone. This is a fantastic way to keep code organized, and to prevent those maddening screen-blurred headaches.

Another cool feature that Koder offers is the ability to yank files out of just about anywhere. The app features full Dropbox, FTP, and iCloud support, as well as local file sharing. This means you’re free to edit your code no matter where it’s hiding. Combined with tabbed browsing and stellar file management, your projects will never be lost in the woods or out of reach. The app also features an excellent snippet editor that even comes preloaded with a few good snippets in multiple languages. There’s no debugger or compiler, obviously, but for on the run code editing you could hardly do better.

Facebook Facelift for iPad Imminent

An official Facebook app may be hitting an iPad near you in short order, according to an anonymous source who spoke with New York Times blogger Nick Bilton.

Facebook iPad app rumors are getting a bit thick on the ground these days. In addition to the official iPad app rumor, there is also the fabled “Project Spartan” that pits Facebook against Apple in the app market, and a Facebook mobile site makeover utilizing HTML-5 code in apps that will optimize performance on the iPad.

Fellow iPad owners will agree when I say an optimized Facebook experience is long overdue. Several third-party applications such as Friendly and iFace have slipped in over the past year or so to fill in the void, but there is always room for improvement.

Expected iPad App Updates

According to sources, the iPad Facebook app makeover will include an optimized picture and video experience with high resolution, full screen images, and an option to upload directly from the iPad’s built in camera.

Mixture: Just Be Glad You Aren’t Dave

Mixture - Robert Dewhurst

Mixture for iPhone

Reviewed by Luke Patrick

 

Price: $ .99
Rating:

One of the coolest things about the AppStore (and the proliferation of iDevices) is the myriad of bizarre, awesome, and totally original games it’s spawned. With the roof taken off game development, small-time producers are free to get creative: And developer Robert Dewhurst has done just that with his iPhone app Mixture.

Gameplay

The gameplay of Mixture sounds like it came straight out of the Hangover: You’re in charge of a (apparently suicidal) bloke whose only goal in life is to down whatever foul concoction you put under his nose. By selecting up to five ingredients, you create smoothies of questionable nutritional value. Dave (our chap in green) then throws them back. If he likes the mix, he’ll tell you. If he doesn’t, he’ll either make a face or get sick. The idea here is to make as bad a drink as possible, and to manage this you’ll have to really get creative: Dave has quite the iron stomach.

Once he’s had a sip of what you’re pouring, the game scores you based on taste, reaction, and ingredients. Scores can then be posted to Game Center, making for likely the weirdest achievement you’ve ever earned. All in all, Mixture features some genuinely hilarious gameplay. There’s nothing cooler than making a sickeningly obnoxious cocktail, and then watching Dave shrug it off with a thumbs-up. Bravo, lad, bravo!

Find Them All: Looking for Animals is Like Pokemon, Only Better

Find Them All iPhone Video App Review


Find Them All Universal App

Reviewed by Luke Patrick

My iPhone app review today discovers that Find Them All looking for animals, by French developer KnbMedia, features one of the coolest educational games available on the iPad or iPhone. The iPhone app is not without its faults (pronunciation and grammar can be a bit off at times) but considering Find Them All’s stellar pricing, its strengths easily make it one of the best language acquisition apps on the market.

Gameplay

As with all educational iPhone apps, Find Them All : looking for animals attempts to do what all good parents do naturally: Distract the kids with entertainment, all while teaching them a valuable lesson. The lesson here is, of course, the names of various animals. Most children like animals, and using them as a springboard for learning new words is a great teaching method. Find Them All accomplishes this by having your child search through a landscape for the specified creature. A tiny, talking sun along the top of the screen will instruct the little to look for—say—a frog, and your child must then find and click said frog. Once accomplished, a picture card with the animal appears, and its name is repeated. This hide-and-seek mechanic is a great way to introduce new animals to small children, and the app offers a lot of other incentives to boot.

When a level is complete, all of the farm hands involved are available for the clicking, meaning your child can go back through and hear anew the name of whatever animal it liked best. Not only that, but a camera is also unlocked, allowing the youngin’ to take stunning photos, which are saved to the app’s album. This is a great mechanic, and even more of a carrot-on-a-stick to get your child learning.
