Just days before Apple's recent educational announcement, one toymaker was busily demonstrating the AppCrayon classroom stylus to a conference of California's Kindergarten teachers. The reaction was overwhelmingly positive and the verdict was clear. Teachers want a stylus. This was not entirely surprising for the folks at DANO Toys who designed the AppCrayon with input from professional educators and beta-tested it in classrooms across the globe for almost a year."By pairing a stylus with letter-writing, drawing, note-taking and other apps, DANO Toys has found a way to meld the new, forward-th

inking iPad education program with traditional educational methods," says DANO Toys Education Director Chelsea Monahan. "Despite using a touchscreen device, students are still able to hold a pencil-like stylus to develop the motor skills that are necessary for printing, cursive and drawing." (more...)


This is pretty great news, according to the incredible sales figures released by Apple yesterday during their quarterly earnings report, the iPhone surpassed the Android and thereby taking the number one spot in U.S.  The guys at Kantar Worldpanel ComTech figured out that Apple sold 37 million iPhones during the fourth quarter of 2011, making Apple the top smartphone manufacturer on the planet.
Dominic Sunnebo, global consumer insight director at Kantar Worldplanel stated “Apple has continued its strong sales run in the US, UK and Australia over t

he Christmas period,” furthermore he adds “Overall, Apple sales are now growing at a faster rate than Android across the nine countries we cover.”
While this might not seem like a big deal, you still need to remember that there are hundreds of smartphones running Android Android, whereas Apple currently only sells three generations of the iPhone.
Wonder what 2012 has in store for Apple, will the release of the much anticipated iPhone 5 catapult these numbers even higher? What do you think will Apple be able to keep the top spot or will Android phones dominate the market during 2012?

Happy Thanksgiving! It’s a time for peace, cheer, and gratefulness. I always look forward to the end of the year, not only because of Christmas, but especially because of Thanksgiving. It’s an admirable holiday– a day to give thanks, express gratitude, and count our blessings– and that’s a feeling that anyone, even non-Americans, can certainly appreciate.
A Year in Viet Nam. I’ve now been in Viet Nam for a little over a year. And although most of our development team is based here, Greengar Studios is an American company. So, when we were considering ho

w to celebrate our first Thanksgiving in our new offices, we decided to make it big. Not in terms of the number of people, but in terms of the amount of food. And we succeeded.
Not only did we prepare ample quantities of food, but we also expressed our creativity in multiple ways. We had a large, artistic “Give Thanks” poster with everyone’s hand-tracings and written expressions of thanks. And a few of the guests joined me in assembling this deliciously juicy fruit turkey:
Elliot and his fruit turkey
Does it look like a turkey? Because it certainly is one!
Thanks to Tyler, Silvercast, and others for helping to put him together. Later that evening, I ate half that watermelon body myself.
Our star Customer Service rep, Angie Worldtrekker, loves pies, especially Apple pies:

Mmm.. I had a slice after this photo was taken.
Needless to say, we had a terrific Thanksgiving feast. And way, way too much food.
Shopping season. Right after Thanksgiving, the shopping begins. I think they call it “Black Friday”. Or was it “Cyber Monday”? Heck, even Apple is having a sale today! So it should be no surprise that we’re jumping in with a sale of our own. We’ve taken our freshly-updated flagship app– Whiteboard Pro for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad– and cut the price from $2.99 down to 99¢.
Whiteboard Pro: on sale!
Yes: 99¢ for a limited time. It’s the lowest price ever.
Whiteboard Pro has NEVER cost less than this.
Get Whiteboard Pro from the App Store while you still can!
Not only that, but we just updated Whiteboard Pro 2 days ago. The new version is 2.3, and this is certainly the best version of Whiteboard we’ve ever shipped.
Besides squashing tons of bugs and seriously improving the app’s performance, we’ve also added the ability to claim your drawings on Whiteboard Gallery– so you can finally take credit for all your work!
This new update is a free to all existing users of Whiteboard Pro. So if you’re already a customer, hop over to the App Store, and enjoy.
And as always, let us know what you think! Give us a good review on the App Store, or let us know if you’ve found any problems. If you contact us, Angie Worldtrekker will get right back to you

MacWorld|iWorld officially kicked off today, and there were over 80 iOS apps highlighted in the Mobile Apps Showcase. We found our app of the day in the showcase, and it’s FavorIt from 2x6Apps. The app is geared towards app discovery by connecting you with your friends’ favorite apps. Rather than providing the most liked apps from random people or App Store activity, FavorIt focuses on your favorite friends. There are some people who’s opinion you trust, and their app picks are definitely intriguing to you.

ite Facebook friends and favorite apps. The app is as simple as selecting your five favorite apps, and all of your friends doing the same thing. Then you get to see your closest friends’ selections, and download them yourself to see if they become your favorites. It’s effortless to swap out apps, though it would be nice to see more choices beyond five. Also, the app only focuses on Facebook Connect, and could use the same type of friend integration with Twitter and contacts.
As it stands, more people use Facebook than anything else, and now your friends just need to download the app along with you to take full advantage of FavorIt. FavorIt is free, but it just focuses on iPhone apps at this point.
