Endless Alphabet

Angie’s first pick is an educational game that will help you teach your little one their ABC’s and vocabulary.

Puzzles, talking letters, and cartoons make this definitely worth the price — $6.99.


You probably waste a lot of time on Instagram, but what if you don’t want to share your perfectly filtered photo to the entire world? That’s where BeFunky comes in.

BeFunky does not require a login or a sharing function. You can save your edited photos for your own collection, or you can choose to upload them to a social network at a later time.

The app boasts “TONS of photo effects and editing options you won’t find anywhere else.” And best of all…it’s FREE.

Yahoo News Digest

There’s thousands of apps devoted to bringing you the news, so what sets this Yahoo! venture apart from all the rest? It delivers you a summary of the news twice a day so you can quickly can through the stories you want to read.

You can download this app for free on iTunes.

Genius Scan

No need to lug around a printer/fax machine anymore. This app turns your phone into a miniature scanner.

Simply take a photo of the information you need. There are cropping and image enhancement tools if you need them. Then, Genius Scan converts your photo to a pdf or jpeg file, which allows you to email the document to anyone your little heart desires!

Genius scan is available for the low, low price of FREE.
