2013 Edison Award for Innovation Winner (Productivity Category).

Time Timer for iPad is a remarkably easy way to manage time.

The Time Timer for iPad App displays time as a red disk that quietly gets smaller as time elapses. Children as young as three understand that when the red is gone, time is up! And unlike many other visual timers, the Time Timer App has a professional look and packed feature set to help adults make every moment count. Highly recommended by experts in education, healthcare, ADHD, Autism and parenting.

Time Timer – Quick Start
In a hurry? Tap “Quick Start”, touch the number of minutes you need, and press Play! The red disk will count down to 0 and notify you when time is up (even if you’ve left the app). Tap the disk at any time to see a numerical readout of how much time is left.

Play a Timer
1. Select your Timer (up to 4 at a time).
2. Press “Play Timers.” The countdown will start instantly.

Create and Save Timers
When you create a new Time Timer, choose one of three visual modes:
1. Original 60-Minutes Mode: Just like Time Timer products, Minutes mode shows you your time as a portion of 60 minutes, make it easy to see how much time is left.
2. Custom Mode: The Custom Mode Timer can be any amount of time you need – 10 seconds, 10 minutes, 10 hours! Great for interval training.
3. Clock Mode: See what time it will be when your time is up!

Total Flexibility
+ View up to four Timers at once, or tap one Timer to bring it full-screen.
+ Edit one Timer while others keep counting down.
+ Use other apps while your Timer is running. The Time Timer app will notify you when time is up.

Awake Mode
Awake Mode ensures that your iPhone or iPod Touch will not fall asleep while you’re in the Time Timer App. To save battery life, switch Awake Mode Off. On the My Timers page, tap the Settings wheel in the upper-left corner and turn On to Off.

Make Every Moment Count!
Use the Time Timer App in:
+ Business: time your meetings, projects and presentations. Use Clock Mode to see your whole workday!
+ Education: teach a child what “five minutes” looks like. Help older students manage homework & tests without the stress of a numerical countdown.
+ Family: keep the family moving by timing housework, yard work, home work, time-outs and computer/tv time.
+ Healthcare: time your medications and workouts! Comfort a child during a medical procedure by showing how much time is left.
+ Special Needs: discover the profound impact that the Time Timer can have on ADHD, Autism, Dyslexia and diverse special needs.
+ Life: beat the clock! Motivate yourself to keep going until the red disk is gone and time is up!

Addition + Play = Making Math Fun!

Aimed at 6 to 8 year olds this educational math game will help kids review concepts and improve their numerical skills whilst having fun!

Did you know that addition is commutative, or that if you move one number from one side of the equal sign to the other, its sign changes?

Learn Addition by playing with the numbers and discovering all these rules by yourself, at your own pace.

Create your profile to challenge your friends! Win coins, unlock all the 20 levels, try to beat your own record and win the most challenging achievements to become a master of addition!

And, at the end of the game…SURPRISE! A fabulous certificate made especially for you to send to your parents and hang on the wall!

Come and check it out! I’d love to play and learn from you!

Children’s Technology Review – 2014 Editor’s Choice Award

Make dolphins jump. Build a coral reef. Explore the deep sea. Create your own aquarium. These are just some of the fun things you can do with MarcoPolo Ocean, a “digital sandbox” for kids to play in that sparks their interest in the most unexplored part of our planet – the ocean.

Build and Explore
Five build-and-play activities bring the language and the images of the ocean to life. Ocean is playfully narrated and animated to reinforce vocabulary, physical attributes and ocean concepts.



*Coral Reef
*Marine Mammals
*Fish
*Boat
*Submersible

Free Play Exploration
The open ocean is a personal aquarium your child can explore however he or she chooses!

*Explore from the shoreline all the way down to the sea floor
*Steer your submersible and boat through ocean waters
*Add marine animals and fish to the ocean and interact with more than 30 different species
*Investigate by tapping, dragging and swiping where the animals live in the ocean to see their natural behaviors and how they interact with other animals

Through self-directed discovery, we expose kids to early skills in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), focusing on the following concepts:

*The wide variety of animal species that live in the shallow and deep parts of the ocean
*Ocean landscape
*Construction and characteristics of a boat (shipping vessel) and submersible
*Characteristics of fish and marine mammals
*Topic-specific vocabulary exposure and acquisition
