This book came out just in time for Easter! I really enjoyed this short story. It was interesting. I really liked the little bit of humor when Joseph was trying to figure out which person was Jesus. Their were just a few typos but other than that this book was wonderful! I hope to read more of Sarah's books :)

Countries Location Maps Quiz

Countries Location Maps Quiz


Reviewed By: Jennifer T.
Rating: It was amazing!

The app title is pretty much what the app is. It quizzes you on the locations of countries on a map. I really like this app because in helps me study for AP Human Geography class and the Exam. The app is really easy to use, but I don't like how there are ads that pop out a lot.


I would recommend this to: AP Huggers, adults, children, teens, teachers, students

Nearly everyone has heard of Skype, the video chat app. It's really a great way to communicate with those who you may not live near, for free. I use it nearly all day on both instant messaging and video calls. It glitches out , sometimes interrupting the call or freezing up, but it's nothing that can't be fixed by a restart. Really like this app!


I would recommend this to: Anyone!

This app is amazing! I get to watch all the latest shows and movies in awesome quality. If I miss my shows I could watch it later on my own time. Also the best part is I could download any movies from the app and watch it with no internet needed


I would recommend this to: Everyone who has Comcast

I am a huge fan of the board game Scrabble, so of course I like this app. You can play Scrabble with a computer, a friend, or another random person. It requires Internet access when playing though, so that's a little disappointing. Otherwise, it's a fun game for those who love word games.

Retailmenot is a coupon app. It has every store imaginable and all the recent in store and online coupons other people have been using. I love using Retailmenot to look up coupons when I am waiting in line to checkout. I almost always find a coupon that applies to my purchase and it is a simple way to save money! Who doesn't love that?

Shazam is a music identifying app. When a song is playing on the radio, at a party, in a restaurant, etc. and you want to know what song it is, Shazam it! I use Shazam all the time when I hear a song a like. It is so much easier than trying to remember the lyrics and look them up. It also displays lyrics and provides a link to iTunes so that you can purchase the song. Great, easy to use app that simplifies daily life.

Merriam-Webster Dictionary

Rating: It was amazing!

This app is extremely user-friendly, with a nice interface and simple usage. It is a complete dictionary, with origins, pronunciations, parts of speech, and synonyms for nearly all the words. There's also a "voice search", in which you speak the word and it will try to find it (very helpful if you don't know how to spell the word). By far my favorite dictionary app, as the 3 others I tried just didn't cut it.


I would recommend this to: Everybody

Rating: Didn't like it

It seems that the app "Pandora radio" is all the rage, but I seriously dislike it. It was a cool concept at first, but as its development progressed it gradually became worse. Each station continually plays the same songs over and over, many songs are unavailable, and the ads are incredibly irritating, along with the fact that if you "dislike" a song, it will continue to play it in the future regardless. If you are an apple user, I would highly suggest using iTunes radio, which I have never been disappointed with.


I would recommend this to: People who don't care what they listen to, I suppose

Rating: Really liked it!

This app is a fun game in which you must direct the path of a "chemical" from its starting point to the end. There isn't much educational value, but there's 135 puzzles that get progressively harder. It is entertaining for when you are waiting in line or something and have nothing better to do, or simply want to challenge yourself a little.
