Typically, an iPhone is used for business or leisure. Yet, what if that same little screen can provide serenity and relaxation at any point during your stressful day? After reviewing Astral Traveler, I discovered how ambient music and dreamy imagery can make for an exceptionally peaceful experience in the crazy pace of my life. Keep in mind that to be healthy and live a long life, relieving stress is a critical factor to consider. Let’s delve a little deeper into what this iPhone app and explore Astral Traveler.
Astral Traveler has three primary buttons on its main screen. There are two videos, both of various lengths that are the “experiential” portions of the iPhone app. The last button is a “Setup Meditation Reminder” tool that can help you schedule potentially the only moments to yourself all day. This app’s ease of use coincides perfectly with the idea of a stress-free lifestyle brought about by Astral Traveler’s incredibly user-friendly interface.
Like most of us, you have likely taken many photos of a place and then awhile later, when you come across that same photo, you are racking your brain trying to determine where it was taken? Trouble your brain no more with the help of the GeoCam app. This iPhone app is a very useful tool designed specifically for the concept of “geophotos” which are essentially photos that are taken and supplied with more detailed information, such as geographic coordinates, camera orientation at the time the photo was taken, additional comments and so much more!
In performing this iPhone app review, I snapped a number of photos and thoroughly tested the functionality. I found that whether you are focusing on an object or a specific location, an additional layer will appear while you are in the shooting mode, and it will display camera orientation and the geographic coordinates. The location data will appear on the upper right hand corner of the screen of your iOS device.
Some other additional features that this iPhone app has to offer includes: simultaneous image viewing, mapped shooting location, shooting direction of shooting, and shooting parameter accuracy. You can also take your captured photo(s) and send them via email or even host them on your social networking sites such as Facebook and your online albums such as Flickr. Getting a hang off all the different features this app has to offer might take some getting use to, but it is not difficult.
Looking for something entertaining, yet educational, for your preschool age kids? There are so many iPhone apps out there that are either a waste of money or a waste of time, but this educational app definitely does not fall into either of those two categories. The JumpStart Preschool Magic of Learning iPhone app, also available for the iPod Touch and iPad, by Knowledge Adventure, is designed for your young ones to learn and grow and have fun at the same time. At the time of this review, the app is available at a special price of $.99, however, it will soon return to the original price of $2.99.
During the iPhone app review I was delighted with a plethora of fun games including: “Bug Catcher” (a color, shape, and number recognition game), “Present Search” (a game that teaches how to follow directions with a surprise incentive at the end), “Matching Duckies” (a memory game), and “ Barnyard Fun” (a game that teaches identifying the difference between upper and lower case letters). There are about 15 games in total featured on this iPhone app, and all teach an essential skill valuable for your young ones, whether it’s math, reading, or critical thinking skills. The layout is very simplistic, and your young ones can easily navigate his or her way through the games while learning at the same time.
Hopefully you are not afraid of heights! Actually this may be the first time you can jump out of an airplane in the safety of your own bottom floor living room! Parachute Rings by Leading Edge Structure LLC is a game that everyone can enjoy!
Visual and Audio:
So you’re all hooked up, helmet and goggles on, chute packed and ready, standing on the edge of the open airplane’s door. This is not exactly a leap of faith, more like a leap of fun! The scenery and sound effects are extremely lifelike as your perspective is looking from just behind you. The rings are formed far in front of you and are easily visible. The sky is filled with other airplane traffic, hot air balloons, and an occasional bird, and as the ground approaches quickly you can see the vast farmland below along with a big red bull’s eye! You can hear the wind whistling through your helmet and if you make it through the rings a nice celestial sound occurs, like you’re falling from the heavens! Speaking of sound, if you don’t pull that chord in time you’re going to hear the sound of panic!
