Apps for June 15, 2012
Magic Ink – The Wonderful Wizard of Oz – Lite Edition is a unique ebook that you swipe across one picture in black and white and see the color underneath which is the next page in the ebook. Also in the color picture you also get other sounds of different people talking or other things in the background just by swiping on top of the picture. If you find the hidden Toto on every color page the dog will bark his favorite songs. You can have the book read to you in your choice of male or female voice narrators. You can read the book yourself, or better yet read this to your child at bedtime for one of the best bedtime stories they’ve ever heard or experienced. The Lite version only has part of the book while the paid full version has everything.

Golf KingDoms is a golf game unlike other ones where you have to hit the ball and land in the cup at the end safely. This game has a side scrolling screen, and to tee off you just drag your finger from the ball to the direction the cup is. You can choose to play a practice round or go right into a tournament. You also have the selection to play with wind or not at all. This game includes three kingdoms, and 27 challenging holes. You can keep up with your achievements using the Game Center if you have a device that supports that. This game will challenge you like never before with obstacles that could have you lose your ball and the possibility of not getting three stars at the end of the hole.
