REVIEW: Dragon Brush Sweeps Readers Away | PadGadget

REVIEW: Dragon Brush Sweeps Readers Away | PadGadget | iPads in Education | Scoop.it

"Dragon Brush is a feel-good story which, while it is imbued with optimism, never devolves into schlock. The app uses interactivity sparingly, creating hot spots with care, so it is always immerses and never distracts the reader. Based on a Chinese folk-tale, Dragon Brush is the story of a poor, but adorable bunny named Bing-Wen. Despite Bing-Wen’s lack of wealth, he never loses hope."

Does an iPad Need Scratch Protection?

Does an iPad Need Scratch Protection? | iPads in Education | Scoop.it

"I recently gave my iPad a pretty serious scratch doing something that I’ve done hundreds of times – sliding the device across a wooden coffee table. I’m not sure exactly what caused it, but the surface of the table probably had a tiny flick of sand or dirt on it, and the sliding motion allowed it to gouge a 3″ mar into the otherwise pristine iPad 3 rear shell. This got me thinking about scratch protection for iOS devices in general, and who needs protectors and who doesn’t."
