Why my iPhone is amazing today…


On April 19, 2009

I am currently working on my Masters of Education Administration. My real job was crazy busy this week so I was unable to complete any of my assignments. So this lovely Saturday has been spent on my laptop since around 9:00 this morning. Research class is not what I would call enjoyable. This week’s assignments require a lot of paraphrasing so I was in need of a thesaurus. I have them in my classroom but did not want to stop and go up there. Then I remembered that I downloaded the app after reading Dan’s blog post. A thesaurus is also included. That meant I was able to stay right here and continue working. Who would have thought the iPhone was more than a device to make vulger noises and look at bikinis? Why is your iPhone amazing today?

Who’s On, What’s On iPhone


On January 26, 2009

They’re been quite a few changes here on the site over the last few months.

The Developer’s Corner is up and we are excited to see it become a venue for developers to share their apps, insights and updates with us.

An internal site messaging system is up and working — more on that later.

Perhaps the biggest change, however, is the increased number of voices here on the site. In addition to Dimitri, Brad, Jim, Jennifer and me, we have had the good fortune to be joined by a number of new individuals over the last weeks and I just wanted to take a (belated) few minutes to allow each to briefly introduce themselves.

I love the fact that as the site continues to grow so too do the variety of perspectives offered, not just in the comments, but through the reviews themselves. We have a great group of writers here on WOiP. The range of experience, age, location etc is tremendous but we are all more than a bit enthusiastic about our OSx iPhone-running devices. I’m pleased to invite them to share a bit.

Thanks to all of our writers– and especially you, our readers, for making the site what it is.

Peekaboo Barn – Promo Code Giveaway

WOiP Link
iTunes Link

Developer’s Notes:
An educational farm adventure for toddlers and families??Who’s in that barn? Listen and guess! Tap the doors to find out!??Play in English or Spanish!??Work with your child to learn the names of animals and the sounds they make! Younger children will love opening the barn doors to find a new animal animation, as they learn about cause and effect and become familiar with animal names and sounds. Older children will enjoy guessing animals by sound, then seeing the animal names, which helps develop early literacy skills. And everyone will adore the illustrations by Divya Srinivasan, whose work is regularly featured in the New Yorker.??Peekaboo Barn was made for you and your toddler by artists and educators, not marketers, robots, or folks repackaging clip art. Our team has backgrounds in cognitive science and child development, and we’ve worked in educational media everywhere from Yahoo! to the Smithsonian Institution.??When you could really use a safe distraction–in airports, restaurants, and waiting rooms–or you’d like to try something new with your little genius, Peekaboo Barn is an educational, artful solution. Enjoy!

Jennifer’s iPod Touch Adventure: 1st Call For Help


On January 10, 2009

They say admitting you have a problem is the first step, so I guess seeking help for the declared problem is step two? Having very little computer knowledge and even less confidence in my abilities I find it hard to believe I am writing for this or any tech related site. But I am hoping this is the beginning of what is to become the "best education" the web can offer!

Yesterday my wonderful (usually) children and I enjoyed the greatly anticipated, by the children, snow day! I had my sites on a laundry list of chores I wanted to do on my bonus day off.  Exciting things like taking down the Christmas tree, cleaning a closet and their bedrooms, preparing my lesson plans for next week, dishes, and laundry just to name a few. 

My children thought it would be a good day to fight over everything.  My solution?  I quickly offered one child my laptop and the other my Touch. Bothdevices  offer a great many games and the ability to occupy the darlings for a while. I don’t want you to get the impression that I did not want to spend some time with the kids.  That too was part of my list, but I had things to do first. 
My daughter opted for the Touch, and immediately searched the applications store and before long wanted to download a game or 3. I still regret showing her that little trick a few nights ago, but desperate times call for deperate measures.
