Toddler Counting and Numbers: Dinosaurs, by developer Space Machine, is yet another brilliant addition to the ever-growing field of educational apps for the iPad. The iPad app combines fun, dinosaur-themed games with numbers and alphabet learning, creating an engaging atmosphere in which small children can learn.
Toddler Counting and Numbers: Dinosaurs offers a simple, and fun, method of teaching small children both numbers and the alphabet. The main game mechanic of the iPad app is spread across four different lessons, and is incredibly simple in its construction. Toddler Counting and Numbers: Dinosaurs has your child moving jumbled up strips of an image (all of which are dinosaur-themed) into place using either numbers or letters as their guide. Each part of the image is labeled with a single digit or letter that matches up to a same-labeled position on a board below. Once the picture has been completed, the app congratulates the child, and then offers them their pick of an array of stickers. Stickers are very diverse (cupcakes, balls, toys, etc.) and can be added to the child’s sticker book, offering an added drive to learn. Once the child has completed a sticker book, it can be saved to the photos album, or even emailed to the parent for some post-printing refrigerator fun.

If you spend any amount of time hunting for apps in the AppStore, or even just want a few free suggestions to add to your iPhone, AppFreeway by developer Kankado, has everything you need to become a power app market user.
AppFreeway is a no nonsense kind of app, so we’ll cut the frivolities and get straight to the chase: The app’s only goal is to get in touch with developers to bring you the best paid apps for free—no jailbreak or shady back alleys required! The good folks at Kankado have done their research and offer a wealth of click-based statistics and video-supported incentives to hook developers into supplying AppFreeway with their app for free. That sounds complicated, but in the end all it really means is that developers get more downloads and you get free, quality apps.
A fresh install of AppFreeway produces a clean interface with a neat scrolling bar along the bottom. Within this bar, users will find a wealth of featured apps, including information and a quick video about each.

It’s that easy, and as AppFreeway is being updated often (currently weekly) it’s wicked simple to find new, quality apps.
If you cannot stand the price of teleflorists but your significant other (or mother, or friend) would adore flowers, try out KeBouquet for the iOS! True, it might not be quite the same as a real bouquet of roses, but it’s a much more environmentally friendly (and affordable) alternative to traditional floral arrangements! Users can load KeBouquet on their iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch, then proceed to design their own custom floral arrangements and send them to their friends. There is a huge assortment of different flower arrangements possible with KeBouquet, plus all sorts of different (and impressive) personalization options.
It’s easy to access the different options presented to the user in KeBouquet, with their associated buttons at the bottom of each screen. Users can select from viewing their own Gallery, making Bouquets, setting up their Calendar and more with KeBouquet.
Of course, KeBouquet isn’t just a simple floral arrangement app. It also offers a useful Flowers Encyclopedia, where users can look up the meaning of different combos and specific flowers. Also included is a floral suggestion tool, and a calendar to keep track of important events and celebrations where flowers would be appropriate. Finally, users can send their arrangements not only via email (and text message!), but also via Twitter and Facebook.
If you’ve spent many a night lamenting the lack of true cover flow on the iPad—that’d be the eye-candy included in iTunes whereby your album covers float past like levitating LPs—it’s time to stem those tears and head to the AppStore: Album Flow, by developer Imre Katai, has everything you need to scratch that musical itch.
If you’ve spent much time with Apple’s stock iPod app for the iPad, you’ll notice one obviously bizarre omission: There’s no cover flow, as in both the iPhone and iTunes for desktop. Considering the iPad’s larger screen size and incredible resolution, this seems like a real spanner in the gears. Thankfully, Album Flow has taken it upon itself to cure Apple’s oversights, bringing full cover flow style music to your iPad at long last.
Album Flow’s main draw is, of course, its excellent album art, so we’ll start there. All of your albums are arranged along the bottom, and look exactly as you’d like them to. Album art is crisp, with the current album enlarged and centered while the others are tilted to the side. You can sort the cover flow via artist and album, but if that still doesn’t do it for you, you’re welcome to use the included search bar to look for individual tracks. Once selected, tracks from each album are shown along the top left, while Album Flow’s media player sits at the top right. Playback within the app is extremely simple, and offers all the functionality you’d expect: There are buttons to loop, skip, pause, and shuffle tracks, while sliders for volume and song location sit nearby. It’s simple, familiar, and it works like a charm.
