Numerosity: Play with Addition! App Review

Did you know the US ranks #32 in math? It is a fact. My kids complain nightly about their math homework. Now I admit I do not actively use the complex algebra or geometry methods I learned in school but I use math fundamentals daily. It provides a foundation in jobs from everything from computer science to fashion design. Numerosity: Play with Addition, is one of those apps that I let my kids play as long and as often as they want. It simply makes learning math fun.

The app is setup in levels for kids 6-8 years old. You have the support of Skruff the streetwise dog to assist in your math learning journey. When you get stuck you can click in the hint button. You are also rated on how you completed the level. The graphics, sound effects and format is fantastic for at home or in the classroom. 

Here are some screenshots from my Numerosity app experience:

At the end of the game you get a fancy certificate to show off to your parents!

Chalkboard art class by Rhonna designs

Rhonna and me

I have been introduced to Rhonna Designs few weeks ago and I was so exited when I learn she was giving a chalkboard class at Thanksgiving point, Lehi. Utah.
I signed up very quick and my kids thought I was nuts to be so happy about a "class". 
I had no idea what to expect. I thought easy peasy, she must have a projector or something....
It is all freehand!
Absolutly amazing class, where Rhonna teaches you step by step how to make beautiful chalkboard art.

Here the pics of my arts:

"Spring has sprung, breathe it all in"

 Below are Rhonna's creations. She is such an inspiration and the class was so much fun. I left happy about my new find talent and ideas rolling in my head.

"True friends are like the sun they always shine"

"Turn your face to the sun and the shadows fall behind them"

I came home and my daughter jumped on the chalk obsession and was exited also while I was teaching her the basics. She made her copy of my "spring has sprung" art on the side walk.

You are loved

1 John 3:18

18 My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.

I try to show my kids and husband everyday that I love them not only in words but in actions. I think it is easy to forget that your actions speak louder than words. I am not perfect at it but I hope that my example will help my kids know what real love, trust and living to your words means. have a happy Sunday my friends.

Our trip to St George

We spent 2 days in St George last week-end. It is 6 hours from Salt lake city and 2 hours from Las Vegas. 

 Snow canyon
 The St George Valley and the St George Temple
 The narrows
Baby playing in the sand

The whole crew without me

Some pics from my cell phone of the trip:
It was Spring over there with flowers blooming everywhere. Such a fun little trip.
Then we come home to Salt lake city and it snows...
 Do you have anything planned for spring break?

BeforeNow iPad App Review

So much happens so fast in life especially with 4 little kids. I seem to remember the big events in life but easily forget fun and cute experiences. My 4th child is now 1 and of course she is the most photographed. As a mommy blogger I want to capture as much as I can. The BeforeNow is a tool built for Mommy Bloggers like me.  Instead of major events, it is an app for life experiences daily and for the things you want to plan in the future.

Some notable things are the ease of use, design, customization options, Facebook integration and simply enjoying using the app.

Here are some screenshots from the app:

Basic app features:

When you create an event, you can; 
-Add Photos 
-Create Maps
-Rate the Event 
-Write a note or a little story about the details
-Select the date of the event from start to finish 
-Name the event
-Name the location 
-List friends that were with you 

I love this tool and it is a mainstay on my iPad.

Otto's Toy Chest Android App Review

Toy story is one of my all-time favorite kid movies. It shows the precious childhood playtime and interaction with toys. Toys have such personality and need to be fixed when broken. I was reminded of this when I was introduced to the Otto’s Toy Chest app. Otto’s Toy Chest is a super cute puzzle game where kids can fix broken toys such as Stick-eee the Frog and Bobo the bear. The app teaches puzzle placement using arms, legs, hats, tails etc. 

The app is great for playing at home or at school classroom puzzle activities. Here are some screenshots from the app:

More from the app:
Otto's Toy Chest is a game everyone can play! Otto’s moved to a new house and the movers didn’t do a very good job!  Otto’s toys have fallen apart and you can help put Otto’s toys back together in a snap! You simply touch and drag the pieces of each toy together to bring them to life!  Each colorful and friendly toy has its own unique animations and multiple outfits and accessories!  There are twelve unique toys including, Poots the dog, Lily the cat, Stick-eee the frog, Flip the horse, Gigi the monkey, Bobo the bear, Carter the centipede, Babe the rag doll, Debug the Robot, Tweeder the bird, Gill the octopus, and Splint the spider!  There are over 40 variations of toys to make - enough to keep you busy for a while! 

Otto's Toy Chest is a non-violent game that is kid safe and is great for early learning development. A productive use of time, it teaches basic problem solving skills and helps to develop motor skills.”

Smartphone DNA Release!

I am soooo excited to announce the release of the Smartphone DNA app for Android. I am a Twitter junkie and this app is the coolest new app for Twitter users. The app lets you create your Smartphone DNA and then compare it against other Twitter users to see how close you match.

Here is how it works:

1. Smartphone DNA shows you a list of apps you have currently installed.
2. You select the apps you want to share as part of your DNA.
3. Smartphone DNA shows you how close you match the DNA of other users.

Smartphone DNA is 100% secure and completely controlled by you.

Here are some screenshots from the app:

You spend more time with your smartphone than with your spouse, girlfriend, boyfriend, family, friends or coworkers. You sleep with it, eat with it, watch TV with it and admit it; you take it to the bathroom. By doing this, you are creating a new type of Smartphone DNA.

Smartphone DNA helps you find other Twitter users that match your Smartphone DNA!

Sign up for the Smartphone DNA Newsletter and learn the most effective methods to get new Twitter followers.
