This one seems to match a Sim City or Zynga’s CityVille feel. Your task – simply build a virtual city to attract people and control the infrastructure. You start with a decent amount of coins and some megabucks – both with in-app purchase options starting at .99 cents. When you play Megapolis, you start by building some residential areas, adding markets and wind turbines, then collecting on what was built. Alice, who’s...

They came back and created a “personal” pricing plan where you could install Office on 2 machines – a computer and a tablet. The $6.95 a month ($70 a year) plan actually made more sense. It comes with Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Access, Publisher, and One Note. It also comes with 20 GB of OneDrive storage, Skype with 60 minutes of calls each...

This time they have turned the iPad into a music control unit with the iRing system. Two plastic rings with a dot pattern which will control beats, add tones and samples, and even control your programs on the Mac. I start with the iRing – two plastic rings that slip in between your fingers. These rings will control any iPad 2 or above (needs the front-facing camera to work) to adjust the beat and tones to the...

If a child can learn on their own, they might get more opportunities to be a part of something bigger. That is why I really like what Chromatik is doing – they give you the ability to practice your instrument (guitar, drums, clarinet, trumpet, etc) using popular music. Chromatik is part of a bigger project for schools to get sheet music. Whether it’s Rachmaninoff or Royals, musicians can keep their chops up and practice what they...
