Amelia – Story Book for Kids

Amelia Story Book for Kids is a recently updated version of the original app; Amelia and Terror of the Night.

This updated effort is simply wonderful and a must-have addition to the apps you buy for your kids.

We love how the creepiness of Amelia, like other books, movies and drawings fits neatly into the same vein as Alice’s adventures in Wonderland. We are incredibly excited about this update: Amelia Story Book for Kids by developer OhNoo Studio.

The app’s eBook story is a brilliant way to entertain your children, and if your aesthetic sensibilities are anything like ours, also entertain yourself while you’re at it.

Concept and Functionality

Like most apps for children, the concept behind Amelia Story Book for Kids very closely resembles a traditional print publication, only one that’s been tweaked with more than a few modifications. For instance, you’ll get standard page turning delight here, as well as text to read.

However, there are many things you could never find in a book. Things such as 60 hidden stars that unlock secret scenes and 4 mini-games to keep your little ones on their toes.

What sets Amelia Story Book for Kids apart from other works that offer added entertainment? The fun factor. Each and every page has elements to be unlocked and observed, rewarding the reader with stars for their efforts.

This means your child not only gets a full and gorgeous eBook style story through Amelia Story Book for Kids, but also an engaging world to explore, poke, and otherwise test at their leisure. We can’t get enough of it, and assuming your children share your quirky art sense, they won’t either.

Graphics and Artwork

Amelia Story Book for Kids

Now, let’s talk about the fun stuff! We’ve been in and around the children’s illustration world for some time, and we have to admit, Amelia Story Book for Kids is an absolute knockout.

The characters are completely unique and the artwork hand drawn and gorgeous to the last drop of ink.

Furthermore, the story is properly balanced between creepy, quirky and endlessly entertaining. The mere premise of the whole thing is enough to keep the child turning pages, as well as the adult, we think. Also, be sure to hold out until the end, as it comes with a surprisingly twisty ending.

Overall Value

Amelia Story Book for Kids is a truly stupendous example of how one should design and create an eBook application for children.

It’s brilliant and accessible from top to bottom, as well as cheap on the wallet. Costing only two bucks, you’ll get one mountain of content, as well as an infinite number of opportunities to spend some quality time with your children.

Amelia Story Book for KidsAmelia and Terror of the Night requires iOS 6.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.

MrEdison is a terrific app that will not only boost your child’s educational skills, but also entertain them at the same time.

This great app for kids, from developer WindyVision Systems, Inc., is the perfect addition to any parent’s, or grandparent’s, iOS library.


The MrEdison app will make learning fun and entertaining for any child.  With the help of a Capuchin monkey named “Mr. Edison”, you child will learn a wide variety of skills and subject matter that will help increase their knowledge and educational experience.

Topics included in the app such as learning the alphabet, spelling, and sentence constructing all help your child with their vocabulary and language skills.

Skills such as learning addition, number counting, sequence order, and analysis all assist in improving your child’s mathematical skills.

Each subject or topic is presented as various game formats making learning not only beneficial but enjoyable for your child as well.

Appearance and Layout:

Overall, the appearance of MrEdison is bright, colorful, and simplistic – which is perfect for young ones with short attention spans.

Easy to use and fun to play, younger users will not get frustrated with the simple swiping action they need to act on in the games.

Importantly when working with the app kids only use a swipe or a drag, there is no tapping required. Another nice feature that helps little fingers without an adult’s dexterity.

App features and layout are just as simple to look at and perfect for little ones to see the whole picture.

Letters and numbers are shown bold and obvious making them easier to spot and easier to identify with.  Nice and rewarding encouragement phrases from Mr. Edison the monkey displayed at the end of each game completed is a great plus too.


The Mr. Edison app is primarily geared to kids in the 3 to 7 age range and it can be lots of fun for parents as they interact with child and help them improve their academic skills. We were very happy to see the variety of topics covered but since it does have a limited age range, the audience looking for this type of app is a bit more limited.

It is a breath of fresh air to see an app available in the market today that combines education with fun, and MrEdison fits the bill.

Mountains AR: the augmented reality is Simply Amazing


Mountains AR: the augmented reality
Price: $2.99

If you’re a backpacker, hiker, vagrant, nomad, explorer, adventurer or nature lover, you may or may not own an iPhone. Most likely, this depends on your “off-the-grid-ness” and socio-economic situation.

However, if you’re a technologically savvy traveler that usually keeps flashlights, matches and a battery pack around for upcoming adventures, then the Mountains AR app, from Gian Paolo Saliola, is going to make a compelling case for you to buy and bring a mobile phone around too. Mountains AR, is quite remarkable and is built to analyze and assess your mountainous surroundings.

Simply point your iPhone toward scenery or a mountain range at hand, and the app will display all of the information you could desire. At only $2.99, it’s cheaper than your next pack of batteries and will be a perfect addition for the backpacker who’s always on the go!


This app has an innate intelligence that’s very impressive. Simply by allowing the app to find your current location, and then pointing outward, the app can identify your surrounding mountain peaks or climbing environment.

Mountains AR iPhone App

The “AR Engine” is optimized for a variety of devices and camera models and immediately simulates user position anywhere across the globe.

The app itself has over 250,000 peaks in its database, and you won’t be able to find an obscure enough environment that it has yet to explore it. You can set coordinates manually or auto-locate, and really let the app do most of the work when it comes to identifying your current position.

Concept and Functionality:

To see if this app really stands up to the test, you should probably take it on an arctic expedition. Would it withstand sub-zero temperatures and does it compete with other comprehensive hardware models? Of course that really depends more on the iPhone but these questions require further examination. Does the app do well with immediate identification and exploration of terrain? That’s a definite yes, and stands up to the test thus far.

Overall Value:

This app isn’t for everyone, but will be a delight for campers, backpackers and anyone who has every wondered about an interesting looking mountain off in the distance.

We always love seeing new outdoor apps, as this blend of nature and technology offers people around the globe the best of both worlds.

MQRMountains AR requires iOS 7.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5.

Discover Great Movies with Film Fish


Film Fish – movie discovery

Reviewed by Marilyn Chau

Film Fish – Movie Discovery is a very cool new app that brings the movie discovery service to the convenience of your favorite iOS device.

Available for free through the iTunes Store, this app makes figuring out movie night plans a cinch.


Film Fish – Movie Discovery, by FilmFish LLC, is a film suggestion database, with an important distinction.

Unlike most other movie suggestion services that rely on algorithms and other “scientific” approaches to providing recommendations, this app uses the “original” movie guide concept; Film Fish’s suggestions are all from the advice of other fellow human beings. What a concept!

The app, which was previously rolled out through a website, generates a list of movie suggestions for you, based upon the movie preferences you state.

Sources for streaming the flicks are also listed within the app, ranging from Amazon to Netflix to HBO, etc, allowing you to conveniently find films featured in movie services you already pay for anyways.

Your movie searches for an evening can be based on just about any theme you can think of “Movies about…” and a list of suggestions based on your current theme mood as well as your past preferences is provided.

Appearance and Layout:

While the services provided from Film Fish are definitely worth checking out, the layout of the app could still use some work. Specifically, I found it difficult to locate a way to adjust my list of services that I subscribe to after I created an initial Film Fish account.

Navigating through the movie suggestions within the app is fairly easy to do, once you’ve set-up your account however.

The appearance of the app also adds to its user friendly appeal, with movie suggestions followed by quick blurbs to help you decide whether or not that’s the flick for you that night.   


For the frequent movie-watcher and the occasional film critic alike, this app is a great value.

Although its appearance and layout could probably use a few tweaks, the overall concept of the service provided through Film Fish is an impressive one.

It’s easy to use, and the suggestions provided through the app were actually useful and well suited to personal taste.

While the layout of the app could use some improvements for ease in adjusting account information, these layout issues should not deter you from trying out Film Fish.

Colory is a Beautiful Adult Coloring Book

iPhone App Review by

Reviewed by Philip Chan

Adult coloring books have become the latest rage these days, but bringing a physical coloring book around can be somewhat tiresome, so why not have all your favorite coloring books all in one convenient location?

Colory is a beautifully designed app that gives you the luxury of taking your coloring books with you while on the go.


Upon opening the Colory app, developed by Lotogram, you will be presented with a numerous variety of coloring topics, ranging from new releases to specialty themed ones.

Simply tap on the topic that interests you and if it is your first time coloring, a simple tutorial will be available.

Simply tap to begin painting, use your finger tips to produce a spreading motion to zoom in, drag across the screen with one finger tip to move, and change up your brush mode with the color palette selection on the bottom of the screen. There is also an “undo” button for any mistakes you want to get rid of.

You can also create and color your very own emoji, iMessage sticker, and even scan and upload your own image that you want to color. These options can all be accessed under the “Create” menu option on the bottom of the app screen.

Appearance and Layout

The overall layout of Colory is very easy to figure out and get around. Large coloring topic icons appear right when you open the app, clearly labeled with brief subject headers.

Select a relaxing tune from the playlist on the top of the screen and even view other users’ takes on the same coloring image from the “Inspiration” drop down menu.

You also have the opportunity to save, print off, and /or share your work of art with others via social media as well.


Colory is free to download.  While most of the coloring images are free to color and share, there are some that require an in-app purchase to access. Overall, with the amount of images that are made available to you from the start, this app is well worth the value. It works as a great stress reducer and boredom killer.

It’s the perfect app for users of all ages, and Colory will not disappoint!
