    What's the big deal about IMDBRT? Just another set of opinions. There are no "right" or "wrong" opinions, just opinions we agree and disagree with.

    TranscribeMe looks like a very good app, but to bad it isn't for android also.

    OMG, the Tiny Tap Artist app will allow me to make a game for my 3-year old. What a fantastic birthday gift for her. Now I will have to get creative and figure out what I want to feature in it.

    But even better, maybe the app will be suitable for creating games for our older citizens - for example: with adult (as opposed to kid) pictures (not adult as in R-rated) and with easy to play and succeed action so Seniors suffering from Alzheimers could enjoy playing.

    Hey game developers - LARGE AND GROWING MARKET OUT THERE for age appropriate easy games for Seniors suffering from dementia or alzheimers.

        I got an answer directly from he Tiny Tap developer:
        "We are working on an Android version.
        It should be live in about a month."

    Hmmm...I wonder how my instructor would feel about being transcribed by TranscribeMe. I would think he wouldn't have an issue with it. Considering her is Teaching an ITS class. It sure would make note-taking SOOO much easier. And I could spend more time on MakeUseOf during the lectures.
