Learning to Multiply by 12 – CardDroid Math Flash Cards Tip

1

March 2, 2013 Update: As of version 2.7 of CardDroid Math Flash Cards, there’s a built-in problem set for 12 x [1 to 12].  Just go to the settings screen (tap the “gear” icon on the home screen), tap “Load a Built-in Problem Set,” choose the multiplication icon toward the top of the screen, now scroll down until you see “Multiplication: 12 x [1 to 12] = ?” or “Multiplication: [1 to 12] x 12] = ?”  If you want to customize it, follow the instructions below. Happy multiplying by 12!

Battle of the Tablets (Nexus 7, NOOK HD, Kindle Fire HD) – Part 1

1
Barnes & Noble NOOK HD+ Tablet
NOOK HD+ (9″)

As an app maker, I need to have a variety of hardware for testing. This is especially true of Android where each phone and tablet is a little different. That’s how I came to have a Google Nexus 7, an Amazon Kindle Fire HD, and a NOOK HD+. I mixed it up and got the 7″ Kindle Fire HD and the 9″ NOOK HD+ so it’s not 100% apples to apples – and no Apples. 🙂

The Contenders

  • Google Nexus 7 – 7″ 1280×800 HD display, $199 for a 16GB model.
  • Amazon Kindle Fire HD – 7″ 1280×800 HD display, $199 for a 16GB ad-supported model ($15 more to remove lock screen ads) – no power supply included.
  • Barnes & Noble NOOK HD+ – 9″ 1920×1280 HD display, $269 for a 16GB model (the NOOK HD is a more comparable model at $199 for an 8GB model or with a higher density 1440 x 900 7″ display)
    NOTE: The NOOK HD and HD+ allow you to add up to 64GB via a microSD slot.

The comparison begins after the break.

New NOOK HD Live Wallpaper App Versions
Hi, NOOK users!
We have revised our live wallpaper apps for NOOK HD and NOOK HD+ (which is quite nice, by the way). Barnes & Noble changed out the way to change wallpapers by surprise so if you load an older version of the app, the “Change Your Wallpaper” button will crash the app. As of version 2.1 of Space Journey and version 2.0 of Santa Cruz Flowers, the buttons will work correctly, and you’ll enjoy the new HD goodness.

Old verison workaround: The older apps will still work as live wallpaper if you long press an empty area of the home screen, choose wallpapers, choose live wallpaper, and choose the wallpaper of your choice. But the new versions are available so you might as well upgrade and enjoy!

Timeframe: Space Journey 2.1 is now in the Nook Apps Shop.  Santa Cruz Flowers became available on November 15 (yay!).

New App on the Way

Red chile on  wooden cutting boardWhitneyApps will release an exciting new app very soon (in the next week or two depending on App Store approval processes).

There’s nothing like this app out there!. Check here or “like” us on Facebook to be the first to know. The chile on the right is one of the “characters” from the new app.  It’s interactive, it’s lots of fun, and it’s even useful. And, of course, it’s in HD. (It looks great on Kindle Fire HD, NOOK HD/HD+, Nexus 7, Galaxy Note, and – on the emulator – Nexus 10.)

Edit (November 29, 2012): It was later than we planned, but “Veggie Clock” is in Google Play now and should be in Amazon Appstore and NOOK Apps Shop in early December (be notified by email when it’s in your preferred app store).
