Mom’s Weekly Special


  This past week I had an email asking for a recommendation on how to filter Safari use on the iPhone and it got me thinking that there are probably quite a few parents in the same boat. Maybe your children received a new iDevices for Christmas and you’re discovering it’s not as easy to …

  Welcome to Monster Physics, the newest app from Dan Russell-Pinson, developer of Stack the States and Presidents vs. Aliens. Dan’s made Geography and learning about the President of the United States fun and addicting so what has he done for physics? He’s used monsters to add a little bit of zany to  an app that teaches basic …
