Recipe Manager with Serving SizerRecipe Manager with Serving Sizer for the iPad by Creative Algorithms, LLC takes the guesswork out of changing your recipes depending on the number of people you are feeding.   It makes keeping track of your favorite recipes easy!  A little bit of background of the developers, they are a husband and wife team. Cory, does all the programming and Justine, does designs and graphics. To learn more about the design of this app, Justine’s blog post provides great background. This app allows you to copy your recipes into a database where they are all easy to find and re-size as necessary. Once you have entered the recipe, you can change the serving size and the entire recipe is converted to the number of people you need to serve.  We have a CSA and have collected some great recipes over the years.  I used to keep everything in a 3 ring notebook but struggled to keep it clean – and I was always finding new recipes which needed to be shrunken or made bigger depending on the number of people I was feeding.

I used this app on Thanksgiving and found it was very useful in sizing recipes down for my family, plus taking photos of the various creations was wonderful so I can pull up a recipe card and see what it is that I made via a photo. I also liked the ability to snag recipes from various websites and copy them into the recipe cards giving me the ability to try them before entering each of the ingredients onto the card. I also liked the ability to email the various recipes to friends and family.  You can add recipes directly from the web using a built in browser as well as paste from the clipboard.  One of my favorite features is the ability to easily import recipes that I have collected from various places into the app making it a one stop shop.  A number of ingredients are pre-populated making it easier to pick ingredients as well as the amount of each that you need.  I also love that when the app scales it automatically converts them to a proper measurement instead of 12 tablespoons it converts to 3/4 cup.

In terms of enhancements, I wish there were a way to categorize recipes in terms of difficulty.  My son is learning to cook with me and will often look at the recipe database.  I hate telling him a recipe is too hard – so sometimes we wing it.

This app is ideal for anyone who has a large collection of cookbooks, with favorites in each since you can find the recipe you are looking for in one easy location. It also works well during the holidays when recipes need to be doubled or tripled and during parties where you can size up a standard recipe to feed a crowd of people. Creative Algorithms, LLC is part of the Moms with Apps collaborative focusing on family friendly apps. The app now includes an in app purchase capability where you can purchase specially designed cards including fall and holiday themed.

Article: Role play – kids apps to help kids process a new situation with play

Kids learn best through play and explaining what they are seeing and doing. Recently, every time I turn on the television news or tune in to the local radio, I am prompted things that I know I do not want my child to see or things that I might consider to be scary for them.  Research has shown that children learn best through play — and playing out situations via role play can help them to better process and understand them.  With the recent Hurricane Harvey here in the United States – there has been a lot of news on the television and radio that is overwhelming.  As such, I started thinking about some of my favorite apps that would help kids in these situations. Helping children process traumatic events they seen in the news such as the recent Hurricane Harvey and other frightening news, can be overwhelming.  Many children learn better with play therapy.  Below are a few apps that involve role play, social stories and more to help them process difficult situations as well as explore new situations.   Below is a list of some of my favorites.

Kids learn differently than adults.  Introducing a new situation can be hard.  One of the biggest things I struggle with as a parent is helping my kids understand a new situation.  Helping my kids prepare for new experiences can be overwhelming as.    One of my favorite thing about the MyPlayhome apps is that there are no rules – kids can play and role play while narrating what they are doing.  I love to see all the different games that my toddler comes up with or see my son talking about an upcoming doctors appointment using MyPlayhome Hospital.  Using Social Stories like Kid in the Storybook maker can help kids better understand a new situation.  Dr. Panda has a series of role play apps including firefighters, daycare, school bus and more.  .

My PlayHomeShimon Young is a genius. Shimon is the developer of the universal My PlayHome app and has managed to find a way to keep my iToddler (2.5) entertained for more than just a few minutes. Not an easy task. My PlayHome brings the dollhouse into the digital age by offering an entire virtual home, complete with an adorable family of five that kids can explore and interact with. Also available on the iPhone (Pocket PlayHome!), this app features beautiful hand-drawn illustrations and realistic sounds associated with each interaction. My PlayHome also has a simple user interface very easy for little fingers to control.  This app caters for 2-8 year olds which is appropriate as it’s simple enough for the younger users to play with yet detailed enough to keep the older kids entertained too.” Quite a comprehensive app but still very easy to use by its intended audience. One of the best kids apps I have come across on the App Store!”  This continues to be a top pick of The iMums for kids of all ages.  Read the full review.

 

My PlayHome StoresWhen iMum Amanda reviewed the original My PlayHome back in 2011 she described it’s creator Shimon Young as a genius, and I have to agree. After being  installed on our iPads for 2 1/2 years my kids still play with My PlayHome regularly, and there are very few apps that retain their appeal long term like that. So when I told my children there was a new My PlayHome app out, to say they were excited is a definite understatement.  My PlayHome brings the dolls house into the digital age with an entire interactive house and garden to play in, and My PlayHome Stores expands the play by adding four shops to explore and shop in. The app stars the same characters as the original app – there are 3 moms, 3 dads, 3 girls, 3 boys and 3 babies from a variety of ethnicities and you can mix and match them any way you like to create the family in the app. The twist that my children really love (and that I have not seen in any other app) is when the family go shopping in the stores they can walk home with their purchases, and if you own My PlayHome they can take their purchases from the stores back to their home.  Read the full review.

My PlayHome HospitalIn the fantastic tradition of the Playhome Software Company, comes the latest My Playhome app, My Playhome Hospital. Fully integrated with the other My Playhome apps (HomeSchool and Store), this new app allows the player to explore all aspects of the hospital experience. When the app is opened, the child is faced with the view of the hospital and an ambulance. No settings tab, no external options, and no parental tab. The only extra button to press is the Tidy the Hospital wheel, which is a great option. It allows the player to actually erase the previous designs created and start fresh. The home page ambulance can be driven to the school, home or store; linking the other apps (one of my favorite features).  An interactive app that familiarizes children with the workings and people in the hospital setting. Multiple different scenes with many opportunities to interact with the objects and characters on each page.

 

My PlayHome SchoolOne of the best loved toys of all time are doll houses. It brings hours upon hours of enjoyment to boys and girls alike, and it’s only limitation is a child’s imagination. My PlayHome Software Ltd has brought this enjoyment in the most portable form possible in My PlayHome, My PlayHome Stores, and very recently, My PlayHome School.  While my children and I enjoyed My PlayHome and My PlayHome Stores, My PlayHome School far exceeded our expectations. It has almost everything you could find in an elementary school: a receptionist desk, the principal’s office, a cafeteria, boys and girls restrooms, a science lab, an auditorium, a janitor’s closet, lockers, and of course, classrooms.  Read the full review.

 

 

Explaining difficult situations to kids or helping them understand something new is the premise of  Kid in the Storybook maker.  This app allows you to take photos of an upcoming event — be it a doctors appointment, new school or even a vacation and use your own words, photos and voice to describe it to the reader.  I loved using Bluebee Pals with my son when we recently did a social story about his new school.

Kid in Story Book Maker:... iconEnuma, designs assistance and play-based learning apps to empower kids to be independent learners. they have a special interest in producing apps for children with special needs.  LocoMotive Labs is located in Berkeley, California and was founded in 2012, its design team includes many of the team who produced the Injini child development suite. Kid in Story was designed to help parents and therapists easily produce their own stories for children. As children with Autism often respond well to social stories that include them, they wanted to include a way to easily add the child into the story.  Read our full review.

Jump! A Game of Numbers by Artgig Studio – Review



iPad Screenshot 2

What we love…

the problems get harder or easier dynamically for kids so if they struggle on one level it goes back to retest the skill again

What we’d love to see…

ability to sync across devices and a dashboard highlighting areas your child may be having trouble with

Summary

Fun interactive math app perfect for elementary school and up – even as a mom I found myself trying to save the Snortles!

Our Rating

Jump! A Game of Numbers iconJump! A Game of Numbers by Artgig Apps is a universal app for iOS that features math including addition, subtraction and of course fun with Snortles.  This app allows you to practice simple number identification, addition, subtraction, putting numbers together, planning to capture the Snortles and more!

This is a fun yet addicting math game that encourages kids to practice their math skills in a fun yet interactive way.  One of my favorite parts is that it gets harder and easier depending on how your child does with the level.  By dynamically adjusting it makes the app fun and encourages kids to stay engaged.  This app is a great way to practice #commoncore math skills by problem solving in different ways – it adapts to the child or user so you will be challenged, but the challenge isn’t so hard that you will give up.  My son also liked that you could make the path in any direction that you wanted rather than having to follow a liner path – especially when he went to find the Snortles.  I turned off the stompers and fuses for him on the front page so it became for fun and less stressful – sometimes they would be stresful for him, so it wasn’t worth it!  I also liked that you could have unlimited accounts which meant that even I could play!  I liked that I could have my own account and that way my son could do things on his level and didn’t find it too hard when he played!  The illustrations are beautiful as are the graphics.  By having dynamic math problems, kids and adults are engaged and want to play more!   I also liked that it was not your traditional flashcard drill – by using dynamic screens and games kids can’t “game the system” and memorize the questions to get to the end of a level.  My son enjoyed the beach ball party when he successfully completed one of the environments.  There are six different chances to have a party!

iPad Screenshot 5

Skills practiced include:

– mental math
– skip counting
– basic addition
– different ways to solve a problem (putting numbers together)
– flexibility
– creative thinking on how to save the Snortles
– “Squishing” of numbers to get to the right one on your path
– dynamic game play so you don’t play the same level over and over again even if you don’t earn enough stars

In terms of enhancements, I’d love to see the ability to sync across devices because there are times I have my iPhone but not my iPad and vice versa.  I’d also like to see a parent screen where I could see specific areas that challenged my son – perhaps he’s getting stuck with a specific skill or number in a sequence so I could help him advance.

 

Another five star winner from Artgig.  They seem to have the “secret sauce” when it comes to creating fun interactive apps that are dynamic and kids want to play over and over again!  Great job Artgig!  There are no in-app purchases or external advertisements contained within the app.

Did you know according to the latest report from the CDC a staggering 1 in 68 people are diagnosed with Autism? April is Autism Awareness Month and The iMums wanted to showcase some of the apps that are helpful to people with this complex neuro-developmental disorder.  Many children with Autism respond really well to electronics, and iPads can be a very useful tool for them.

This list includes some of The iMums favorite apps that we have reviewed that were designed specifically for children with Autism, or that help with skills that children with ASD often have difficulties with. In addition to the apps listed below, we have reviewed many more special needs apps and encourage readers to visit the Special Needs category on our website to find apps suitable for a particular skill you are working on with your child.

Many of these apps will be on sale at some time during this month, many only for a day, so keeping checking our Autism Awareness sale post

Dr. Panda Bus Driver by Dr. Panda is a fun app featuring Dr. Panda driving a bus around either a city, countryside, harbor or a variety of other locations picking up and dropping off his passengers, painting the bus, refilling the gas tank and more! Much like a traditional bus, you have to stop to let passengers and other vehicles go by, stop for trains that will pass as well as clean up the bus after your “route” has been completed. This app is designed for preschoolers through early elementary school similar to other Dr. Panda apps and will provide hours of open ended play for them that uses fine motor skills both from seating passengers and driving the bus either with your finger or by gently moving your device to steer it from side to side to ensure it stays in the road.

Counting/Making Change:
Toca Store by Toca Boca creates a virtual shop where children can choose from a catalog of virtual products to stock and how much to sell them for. It can either be played alone or with two or more players. One can be the storekeeper and ring up sales, while the other is the customer. This is a great app because it facilitates turn-taking skills as well as simple counting. I also really liked the ability to purchase the items, and the magical coin purse coming up with more money as necessary for specific items. It also required individuals to finish their turns by first putting the item on the conveyor, ringing it up, paying for it, and then bagging it up before allowing someone to proceed on to the next step.

Money Up! by pkclsoft is an app that teaches money skills for those who have a disability that makes it difficult for them to learn how to count change. It uses the dollar up method in which the student is taught to give an amount that is just one whole dollar above the item’s price. For example, if a drink costs $2.50, the student is asked to pay $3.00. This method not only helps students become more independent, but also keeps them from being taken advantage of by getting the wrong change back. Currently on sale for 50% off! Read our full review

AAC (Augmentative and Alternative Communication) Apps

No discussion of apps for Autism would be complete without mentioning AAC (Augmentative and Alternative Communication). Many non-verbal Autistic children have found a way to communicate using AAC apps on the iPad, and it is much cheaper than a dedicated AAC device. This is an area where we strongly recommend consulting with an SLP who specializes in AAC, to decide which is the best choice for the child, as truly there is no “one size fits all.” Here are some AAC apps to consider:

Proloquo2Go by AssistiveWare is an Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) App, it is a universal app that can be used on  iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch. The purpose of the app is to give users a voice and the ability to communicate. I found Proloquo2Go to be an app that surpassed my expectations for performance. I was blown away with the available help on the website and the seemingly endless custom options that were very easy to learn and implement.” [ Read our full review here]

These apps were specifically chosen to highlight Autism Awareness Month, but are only a few of the many wonderful apps available to help children on the Autism Spectrum.

Alison, the American iMum is from Massachusetts. She lives there with her two sons and husband. In their spare time, they enjoy playing outside, enjoying nature and of course testing apps and fantastic products on their devices. My older son loves technology and loves testing out the “latest and newest” apps and tech. I love sharing information about apps and products with others to help them make decisions without feeling overwhelmed with all of the choices.
