Go To Space With The JFK Challenge

The Mousetronaut went to the moon last night, just before bed but with her teeth brushed and books read. She waved away the weighty, standard-issue space garb for her favorite owl pajamas, because, well, maybe she thinks there are owls in space. Or not, maybe those were just the separates […]

App Review: Basketball Time Machine

If I were to make a list of favorite sports to play and/or watch, basketball wouldn’t be anywhere near the top. Well, that isn’t 100% accurate as I do fancy a bit of the college round ball, specifically my beloved Michigan State Spartans. And time travel? Yeah, that’s not too […]

iOS App Review: Wipeout

WIPEOUT for iPad/iPhone by Cooper McHatton There is a level of difficulty in Wipeout iOS that targets an older audience, but with that kind of finger-swiping challenge comes a whole other level of fun, making it one of the best new games on the App Store. Wipeout iOS involves playing […]

Top Kindergarten Apps For Back To School Season

Glue sticks, sharpened #2 pencils, folders, 3-ring binders, and composition books, oh my!  And a few tissues to wipe away your back to school tears. You’ve got the physical essentials, saw your kiddos off on the school bus, and stopped crying (mostly), now for some digital fun when they come […]

iPad App Review: The Smurfs Hide And Seek With Brainy

THE SMURFS HIDE AND SEEK WITH BRAINY by Cooper McHatton Playing The Smurfs: Hide and Seek with Brainy is a lot like working in a hidden object book. For an app in 2012, there’s a surprising lack of special animations (or any visual effects at all for that matter) here.  […]
