Before I write this review, I just need to let you know: I'm not sure whether Kitty Kannon by Stix&Stones is intended for cat lovers or cat haters. And this is, obviously, very important information!

Site Check: Browse the Web Safely on iPhone

"Stay alert," my father always told me; a reminder to his little girl that it pays to be careful, that safety is not just a matter of luck, but something to actively seek. Site Check, developed by Kevin O'Regan, aims to be a protective parent for the iPhone, allowing users to check websites and web pages for malware and potential phishing attacks.

Munster Matcher is a Matching Game That Requires Monster Memory

If you're afraid of ghosts and ghouls and things that go bump in the night, you had better leave a light on, because...no, not really. Munster Matcher, despite being chock-full of, well, monsters, isn't scary at all.

The Flakery: Creating Virtual Snowflakes is Pretty Cool

I live in New York. For the the first 26 years of my life, I lived in Florida, but now I live in New York. And New York? Is cold. So, to be totally honest, I'm really kind of over snow.
