There was a time back in primary school when my class had a math lesson that involved sticking to a budget as we went around the classroom ‘buying’ things with money that distinctively resembled Disney Dollars. That was the first and last time that I can remember finding the task of sticking to a budget and tracking expenses as being fun. That was until I came across the app, Toshl.
No longer will you need to hastily scribble your expenses on a crumpled piece of paper or try to mentally calculate how much of your holiday spending budget you have blown on drinks and tacky souvenirs. A few taps in the Toshl app and all will become clear, complete with a few nifty graphs thrown in for good measure. Whether you want to keep track of all your expenses or just a one off budget, such as your Christmas shopping, Toshl can be a real life (and hair) saver. Let’s take a look at Toshl’s main features, functionality and performance.
Monopoly is a game that we’ve all played. It has a rich history and is the namesake of hundreds of different versions here in 2011. Its success is derived from a simple board game that can be traced back to 1903 where a similar game was created to explain tax theory.
Now, Monopoly is sold in a variety of editions with five of them living in my house alone. But for those not inclined to pull out the board game, there’s a solution available from EA Mobile and Hasbro, who teamed up to bring Monopoly to your iPhone. The game is, of course, available in the regular flavour, but today we’ll be looking at one of these variations: Here & Now.
The main difference between the two games, available on iPad or iPhone, is the place names. Monopoly opts for the regular names whilst Here & Now uses popular cities, such as London and Montreal to replace Illinois Avenue and Boardwalk, respectively. Transport and utilities are also rebranded to include more modern uses such as solar energy.
In this Quick Look, we’re highlighting Brain Reactor. The developer describes Brain Reactor as a fast two-player reaction game. Play this game to see how fast your brain can react!
Brain Reactor includes 10 brain games, designed to challenge your attention, processing speed, mathematics skills, general knowledge, etc.

As a child, some of my favorite books were the little Beatrix Potter books about the wonderful animal world of Peter Rabbit, Jeremy Fisher, the tailor mice, and more. Whenever I see those original books at the library, I’m immediately reminded of sitting by my Mom as a little guy and reading those tales. Beatrix Potter’s books have a timeless quality to them, just like the original Pooh book included with iBooks for free.
Sideways Apps has brought several of Beatrix Potter’s books to life on iOS, first with Peter Rabbit: Buddy Edition and most recently with The Tale of Jeremy Fisher. Each of these turn the original text and beautiful artwork into an interactive experience. They also include the innovative Buddy Reader technology that lets you read the book to your child from anywhere. Let’s explore the Jeremy Fisher app to see how the Buddy Reader works and the direction this tech could take dedicated eBook apps.

The apps that we’ll discuss today are a hot topic. People on both sides of the argument have strong, outspoken opinions and each make good points.
Ultimately, the question boils down to whether or not it’s acceptable for people to build and distribute iPhone apps that are meant to facilitate the breaking of a law without getting caught by the police. Intrigued? Read on!
