Live Football Stats and Scores – Football Fan Utopia

If you watch football, and I mean the football known to all around the world, and what folks in the U.S. know as soccer, then you have got to download Live Football Stats and Scores, with no delay.

Live Football is an app for iOS devices that brings football fans closer to the game, bringing live data and streaming to users around the world, from games that are played almost anywhere. It hooks viewers and followers of various matches into the stats that surround the various leagues that pit teams against each other.

You can choose Favorite teams and from there, you can get Live Scores from games that are In Play, view games that are currently in play and mark the matches that you want to follow.

After marking the matches, you can view details on each.

My favorite page in the app is the page that compares two teams. I can go straight to it and see precisely how one team stacks up against another, one a point-by-point basis. This page is found under “stats”. You can compare BTTS%, Clean Sheet, BTTS+Lose %, BTTS+Win %, Cards per game, Avg. Goals per Game, and more.

The page itself it laid out cleanly so you can get to the data you’re interested in. You can even customize it by viewing the stat comparison for the last five games, last ten games, or to date for the season. You can also choose All or HvA.

SBAT app

I skipped a page, though. When you download the app, you will see six options to view: Timeline, Stats, Lineup, Recent, H2H, and Table.

Timeline takes you through each game and marks key plays in the game, noting the number of minutes into gameplay, the player, and what happened. Items that are tagged include yellow cards, red cards, corners and goals. This is listed for both teams in the match.

Recent displays games recently played for each team in your matchup, but it shows all other teams each team has played. For instance, in a matchup, if you have Chelsea and Swansea, it will list recent matches for both Chelsea and Swansea. If you select Mixed, it shows where Chelsea was Home and Away. If you select Away, it lists only those games in which Chelsea played Away, and if you choose Home, it lists all games where Chelsea played at Home.

These types of stats are great for fans and for betters alike.

Overall, the layout of the app is pretty cool, but i felt that there was too much information on the H2H page. It showed pairings of data for both teams in a match all on one page. I would recommend moving to a different page and displaying those stats for each, one at a time.

Barring that, Live Football Stats and Scores is chock full of information that any football fan should not live without. Easy to use and up to date, it keeps you in the game.

Spare My hair Provides Accessibility to Hair Loss Prevention and Products

Hair loss is no fun; and it seems these days you see more people at younger ages exhibiting signs of thinning hair. Scalps are more visible, the hair is sparse. It is a mystery as to why this is happening at such an alarming rate. Thankfully, there are lots of solutions out there to help. You just have to find the right one.

If you are looking for a smart solution, then you need to download Spare My Hair. Spare My Hair is an app that gives you access to a doctor who has formulated her own line of hair loss prevention products along with giving you access to the products, too.

After you download the app, you will have an opportunity to make an appointment with Dr. Soliman. Now, keep in mind that her office is in the greater Los Angeles area. Fear not, you will not have to make a trip to see her. The app sets you up with a video conference so your initial consultation with her is live. She asks questions about diet, exercise, family history, lifestyle and more, to understand better the environment you are a part of, which helps determine possible causes for the hair loss.

Once she determines what you need, she advises on a program for you to follow. This will involve items from the Spare My Hair product line, to be used on the hair and scalp and some to be taking internally – just as supplements and vitamins.

Spare My Hair app

Here is where the strength of the app shines. You can then order everything that you need through the app. You don’t have to go searching for a site that sells the items. The app has it all. And everything you use is genuine. Dr. Soliman has formulated all of the items in the Spare My Hair line, so you know you are getting quality products.

I especially liked the chat rooms where I could share my specific issue with others having the same problems. Everyone’s hair and scalp makeup is different, so being able to talk to someone with a similar problem to discuss how they best use the products helps enormously.

Along with the chat rooms, you get periodic check in appointments so the doctor can make sure that your program is working, and make any adjustments that may be needed.

I would like to see better notifications coming from the app when a fellow hair loss sufferer has something to share. I would also like to see the ability to put certain products on auto refill, just like my prescriptions, so I know I will never run out.

Those are both things I can wait for. For now, Spare My Hair has made me feel better about a new approach I just embarked upon to help my head keep its shiny locks in place.

MyPostcard App to Create and Send Cards from Your Device

All special moments deserved to be shared. Sometimes, it’s not as easy as it sounds, especially when you have family and friends living all around the world. Fret not, now there is MyPostcard – Postcard App.

MyPostcard allows users to create postcards from their mobile device, customize them, and then send them. The app takes care of the printing and the sending – if you can believe that! 

These postcards are like no other. You get to personalize them with your own photos. Now, you are not at the mercy of what you find at the local drugstore or tourist trap. Your postcards will feature your experience, customized to send exactly the image and matching message to go with.

The real beauty of the app is that you don’t have to do any work to send the postcards. Once you have created the postcard, you simply add the mailing address and hit ‘send’. The app will take care of figuring out the postage required to send the postcard based on where you are sending it from and where it’s going.

That step, in and of itself, is a huge timesaver! Who has time, while on vacation, to look for postcards, find out where to buy postage, purchase the correct amount of postage, and then send it?

MyPostcard app

The app is laid out intuitively. The icons across the bottom of the screen are in the order of the steps you will follow to create, print, and send the cards:

  • Select Style – here you will choose the layout of the postcard image. You can choose from using just one image to a collage of images.
  • Select Photo – from this screen, you choose the photos you want to fill the template with. These photos can come from the images you have saved on your device.
  • Write – put together the message you want to send on the postcard. You will also get to add the mailing address of the person you are sending the card to.
  • View – take a look at the finished product before you hit “send”
  • Send – this is where you ask the app to print the postcard on quality materials using vivid color and print quality, figure out postage, and send it.

If you are like me and you are wondering if the app will know enough to put the correct amount of postage, don’t worry. They take your location and the destination to calculate the postage that will be needed for a postcard, affix the correct stamps and then post it.

While MyPostcard is focused on sending hardcopy cards, it would be great to be able to send out the digital postcards from the app itself. I know there are other app that already do this, but it would be so cool to be able to send out both ways from one app, keeping things simple.

If you are looking for an easy way to create postcards and then let someone else do the hard work of posting the cards, MyPostcard is the app. Download today…don’t delay!

SENTENCE READING MAGIC App Helps Kids Learn to Read the Easy Way

Kids are learning at a pace that’s faster than what we knew as kids. Having the opportunity to leverage so many online tools and techniques has widened experiences for kids today that far surpass teaching tools of yesteryear.

If you are looking for such a tool to help your child learn how to read, without the frustration and angst that so often comes with, then download Sentence Reading Magic today.

This app is based on the widely known and highly effective teaching techniques that serve as the basis of the Montessori School system. The app itself is the bridge that links children from being able to read words to being able to read sentences, thus allowing them to read books.

It does this cleverly through two learning modes: Sentence Building and Reading Mode.

In Sentence Building, children complete activities which allow them to drag and drop words into correct positions, resulting in a well-formed sentence. The app will let the child know when a word is out of place and will allow them to change its placement.

Sentence Reading Magic

In Reading Mode, kids then sound out each word and can confirm correctness by tapping on the hidden images for each word.

Using touch-to-hear technology, kids can tap on a word to hear how it sounds. This spreads the learning to so many planes, allowing kids to see the word, hear it, and speak it simultaneously, reinforcing the learning process.

There are also pictures that provide hints for kids who are struggling with certain words. The app comes packed with 325 different sentences comprised of up to six words. The word set include 50 of the most used sight words needed for first time readers.

To get into more detail about Sentence Building, the screen itself is in landscape mode, so kids can see things clearly and there is ample space properly show the sentence. The words are given at random near the top of the screen and the child must then drag and drop each word into its rightful place near the bottom, which shows empty boxes, just waiting for their words. If have chosen a 4-word sentence, there will be four boxes. If you choose 6-word sentences, there will be six boxes. You get the picture.

When kids build the sentence correctly, they can then tap on the words to hear their sound. Entertaining music then plays once the sentence is successfully built, and the child can then move on to the next sentence.

I think it would be a great plus to have the ability to print out worksheets from the app so kids could write out some of the words, and look forward to such an update when it comes.

Until then, parents and teachers alike will find SENTENCE READING MAGIC to be a great teaching tool and supplement to teaching techniques currently in place. There’s no better way to teach than through an experience.

TSC Music – Improve Your Listening Experience While Protecting Your Ears

Our sense of hearing is precious, and so is the equipment that allows us to hear. Protecting what’s in our ears is so important, but in this day and age of earplugs, it’s so easy to cause damage, even if you keep the volume low.

Nearly 1 in 5 people today have some degree of hearing loss, and in most cases, this loss is due to exposing the hearing organs to loud noises.

The TSC Music app is the first of its kind. It allows users to stream music via Spotify, SoundCloud, and YouTube, and makes the necessary adjustments to ensure you hear quality sound without hurting your ears. You may be wondering how an app can do that. Well, think of TSC as an equalizer of sorts, which when it comes right down to it, is what it is.

TSC adjust the wavelengths of the various components of sound so that your hearing organs can receive them safely. It knows how to do this by the results of your Threshold Sound Conditioning, which is a test that you should take periodically within the app. It tests your hearing condition and uses this data to equalize the sound you listen to in a way that minimizes damage.

The Threshold Sound Conditioning allows you to test each ear separately, so data for each is collected. No two ears are the same, so it is critical that you measure each ear’s data so that the equalizer can do its job.

TSC Music

Simple to use, the app is clearly laid out and everything you need is easy to find. Every time you perform the sound conditioning, the app collects the data and presents it on a graph that is very easy to follow. It shows:

  • Your progress
  • Your max and min INDEX values
  • The amount of time you have used TSC

I have never seen an app like this that allows you to listen to music with the highest quality in a way that is almost customized to your ears. How cool is that? Most music apps stream music the same way to everyone, but you have to know that we all hear it differently based on how our ears work. Think of the improvements in quality of sound you will experience by using TSC to stream the music.

This is no simple app, either. The TSC technology was clinically tested by Stanford University and by over 100,000 users. With that kind of backing, it is hard to question the efficacy of this app.

While TSC Music is fully integrated with Spotify, YouTube, and SoundCloud, I would definitely like to see it expand to other music streaming apps like Amazon and Pandora.

Until then, I look forward to enhancing my music listening experience with sound that are customized for me, so I can enjoy quality sound without injuring my ears.

Simplanum – Simplified Powerful Planning in One App

Do you hate moving around from app to app looking for information about a project or task that requires several steps and different days and times to meet the end date? You find yourself adding reminders in Calendars, adding tasks with due dates in planning apps, and adding detailed notes in another app. It is a time waster at best.

Ditch the multi-app work management and download Simplanum. Simplanum rolls all of the apps you could possibly need to plan, manage, and complete projects and events in one simple app. No more hopping between apps looking for the information you need. It’s all in one place, as it should be.

Simplanum features the following, which I was excited to take full advantage of:

  • Full Functionality – a Notepad, Calendar, and a Diary, so information is all in one place, interconnected and accessible.
  • Cloud Storage – keep things safe, easily retrievable and synchronized across multiple devices
  • File Attachments – not all of your data will be entered in by hand. Attach emails and files to your tasks so you have backup information.
  • Embedded Checklists – create lists of what needs to be done as part of a note or an event.
  • Weather Forecasting – know what the weather may be like for the upcoming year, so as a planned event nears, you can make necessary adjustments.
  • Web Client – access your app’s data from a desktop easily so you can plan from anywhere.
  • Screen Clips – take screen shots or clips from most browsers.
  • Localized – your apps information is on your device, so there’s no need for the Internet.
  • Text Recognition – detects times and dates in text to help with Calendar updates.
  • Geolocation – can easily be added to notes
  • Voice Recording – add information easily for meetings and plans
  • Locks – lock notes and applications by security code and Touch ID

Simplanum screenshot

If you choose the Cloud option, there is subscription fee based on the level of storage you want. I liked this feature because you may start out small and then want to upgrade as your application use grows.

The app is well designed and easy to navigate, allowing you to spend more time managing projects and less time learning the app. The interface between the calendar, notes, and reminders is seamless; as if the creators knew just how the mind works and made the app in a way that was a natural fit.

The only thing I would say is missing is connectivity to navigation, so that when you are going to a meeting or event, you can do so without copy pasting the location in another app. This may come soon, I hope.

If you are looking to bring organization into your life easily, download the free Simplanum today and experience the ease of effortless planning.

Mansion Casino Fun Has Gone Mobile

If you are a fan of Mansion Casino or have heard about it, then waste no more time wondering – get on your Apple device and download MansionCasino, the app. Yup, the creators of the colossally successful casino website have packaged up ten years of online casino gaming entertainment into an app that allows you to play on the go.

Players from all over have gathered to the website to get paid to play, and now, even more will be able to join in on the fun. You can download the app on both the iPhone and iPad.

You might be wondering why this casino app is so much better than others. Well, I have to say that straightaway you are awarded double the amount to play with when you first download the app. That’s a bonus of 100%. After that, the gaming is great and the winnings are outstanding.

I have never seen such variety within one gaming app before. Games include Marvel slots, like Iron Man 2 and The Hulk; games involving live dealers, such as Poker, Craps, video based poker, progressive slots; and of course, live roulette games featuring real croupiers and live streaming.

The more you play in Mansion Casino the more loyalty points you accumulate, which increases your chance for bigger cash bonuses. As in many other types of gambling games, you can play for real or virtual money – you choose. As your loyalty grows, you can move up into VIP status, which makes it easier to gather and collect even more loyalty points. Stick around long enough and you may even reach Elite status. Make note that each special status level requires you to have a minimum amounts on cash on deposit in the app.

On the more technical side, I found the app to be visually stimulating and further enhanced with realistic sounds you’d find in the real casino. The games themselves adhere to the boards that govern Gibraltar, which is where the business that created the app is registered. Gaming can get dangerous, and the app makes sure that its clients do not misuse or fall trap to any issues.

Playing simple games is not all the app has to offer. On weekends, there are excursion games you can sign up for by making a deposit. These are offered through promotions every so often and offer gamers to explore new countries, their games, and their culture.

MansionCasino

Another neat offer is the Red or Black Bonus. These come every Wednesday and allow you to double your winnings, should you choose the right color! On Fridays, there are other extras available that allow you to earn extra winnings, as well.

Most other apps are just games that allow you to play and win coins or points. Here, we are talking cash, sometimes virtual and sometimes real. That is up to you. Know that if you ever have any questions or issues with your earnings, winnings or deposits, the customer support is superb in addressing your concerns quickly. I had a question about a deposit I made and I wanted to inquire about retrieving it. The folks in customer service immediately answered my email and I got what I needed.

The app is unable to offer all that the website currently does, which is a small inconvenience in terms of variety. However, the app does have a lot to offer, most importantly being the fact that you can play anywhere you want to and not have to be stuck behind a desktop.

MansionCasino’s iOS application fulfills your gaming desires with quality games and abundant payouts. It also keeps you as a gamer in check so you don’t go overboard or in too heavy. It is smart gaming with big entertainment value.

Deadroad Assault – Blow Up Zombies with Your Weapon of Choice

Like power in your hands? Are you into the zombie scene and looking for a new kind of app that puts the fun back into a shooter game? Then look no further. Deadroad Assault has come up with a zombie challenge that is not a hit because it’s unique, but because it’s fun.

You are a trucker who has been stranded on the side of the road. Your truck has issues and won’t start. As night falls and darkness creeps in, so do the zombies. At first, they come at you slowly. First one creeps down slowly from the top of the screen down to where you sit crouched behind a rickety wooden wall.

Don’t worry, though. You are not left to just your defenses by only hiding. Luckily, you have kept stashed away in your truck, your powerful Gatlin gun. This gun will take you only so far, though – maybe through Level 2. Oh, that’s another thing, there are several levels to play through, and as you get faster with the taps to take out the zombies, you will advance farther into the game.

Each zombie you take out gets you points. Rack up points to go shopping in the in-app store. Mind you, you will see an ad or two in the store before you get to view the goodies; have patience and this too shall pass. Once you see the goodies that are available, you will be fired up to do better, because you will need better firearms and walls.

Deadroad Assault

You can also choose to trade in points for powerups, making each tap you blast towards a zombie that much stronger and possible take out more than one zombie per tap. This is something you will definitely need as you move up within each level and into the next levels. The zombies come at you faster and in clumps. This means you either have to become a tapping machine or have bigger blasts.

You will know when you are close to failing a level when you start to see the zombie mob boss show up. Bigger than the regular zombies, he also sports some kind of funny looking bone in his face. See him and you will start to see darker zombies that come at you faster. See him three times, and you are out.

I liked Deadroad Assault a lot, even though it was a bit frustrating the first time zombie boss took me out. But I persisted and got through. I do have to say that the interface got slightly confusing and rapid after I saw the zombie boss and I did not realize at that point that the zombies were going to come at me faster. I was taken by surprise, but just played the level again and again until I figured out what to do. It also required me buying a better blaster, as well.

If you are looking for something fun and simple to play, and like shooter games, then Deadroad Assault is a game to get.

ABC Magic App Helps Kids Learn to Read Early Using Fun Phonics

Kids are learning to read at a very young age these days and parents who are looking to make the art of learning letters and their sounds an easier task are in luck. Preschool University has taken phonics to a whole new level of understandability by embedding the learning process into games and activities.

ABC Magic Phonics is filled with colorful graphics and amusing sounds that keep kids asking for more. They won’t be able to get enough of the app, and parents will see quick results.

Free to download, ABC Magic Phonics offers a variety of games for early learners. The app relies on teaching sounds of each letter, in lower case only. Learning both upper and lower case only adds to the symbol set that kids need to memorize. The app focuses on lower case first and the sounds, not the names.

In one game, players are introduced to the letters, one at a time, along with the sound and a graphic of an item that begins with that letter’s sound. The music and rhythms that play along help emphasize what the child sees on the screen. It’s amazing to see how kids are drawn to what the app displays and how it keeps kids engaged.

ABC Magic Phonics

After listening to the sound of the letter and how it is used, the app has the child make the sound of the letter and speak the word. The repetition and connections on different sensory levels further solidifies what is learned. If the child needs to hear the sound of the letter or the word, they simply tap on either to hear it again. It helps the child engage with the app and learn sounds through repetition.

In one game, the app shows the letter and one image. In another game, the app shows one letter and four images whose name will be spoken by the app when tapped on. A third game challenges kids to figure out which item begins with the given letter based on its sound. An example is the letter ‘a’, whose sound is as it’s used in the word “apple.” Other images will show an astronaut, a rose, and a ladder. Kids of course must choose the astronaut in order to correctly fill a blank spot.

In the options section, parents can select the words their kids can learn or choose all. You can even select a different color for the vowels. The apps voice can be female, male, or random.

I really thought the developers did a great job of incorporating clean images with clear sounds that helped kids learn proper sounding of the letters. I also liked the color scheme. It was in line with what preschoolers are used to seeing and it drew them in like a magnet.

What would be really neat is the ability to write out the letter at some point in time after the sound and recognition have been mastered. This will further the child’s memory of the letter and its sound and how it is used in a word.

This would be a nice improvement, but as is, ABC Magic Phonics is a treasure for parents looking to help their kids get a head start to reading or just give them more practice with sounds so they are ready to go when they start school.
