Daily Routine

Organise every second of your life

Daily Routines is designed to help organise your life, and is packed full of useful features to help you do this. Essentially, it’s a list of timeslots which you program activities into, which are colour coded for easy viewing. You can also add your own customised activities, though you may not need to, as all of the essentials – such as Sleep and Fun – are already covered.

Once you’ve set up routines, you can use these templates over and over again to organise your time. You can allocate them to particular days, as well as make them repeat on certain days of the week or month. The app lets you set notifications, and will remind you whenever a new timeslot starts, or you can set up individual reminders for timeslots that you often forget.

You can also customise the colours and icons to add an extra visual touch, and email your routine or print to an AirPrint compatible printer.  The design is a bit distracting, though, and we would have preferred a more basic interface for this kind of app. It also feels like you should be able to edit your routines by tapping on the entry in the main Routines section, and it feels quite complicated to have to tap through several menus to get to where you want to be. A pity, as it’s great idea in principle that would benefit from a few tweaks to the interface.

Rated 3 out of 5

This could be an app you find yourself using all the time, especially if you have a hectic schedule that needs organising to the minute.

    TITLE=DragonBox – The Coolest Algebra App Ever for Kids (Seriously!);RATING=5;If you have a child who loves playing mobile games, let me introduce you to Dragonbox. Dragonbox is a revolutionary new game that will help your child to learn algebra while progressing at their own pace. I´ve seen some great iPad apps before, mainly on this website, but this cool game deserves a special post. The people behind Dragonbox have created a game that enables children experience algebra concepts as a real game that is actually geart fun! After only one hour of playing, they´ll be able to solve mathematical equations and have fun doing it too – you could say a “win-win” situation. Move the picture boxes around the screen using the game rules (the rules of algebra) and try to isolate the dragon box. The DragonBox game has been tested in schools in Norway, where the results showed significant increased understanding of basic mathematics and the improved ability to solve complex equations. My own 11 and 14 year olds enjoyed competing to complete the DragonBox+ version (with 100 extra levels), my daughter even replaying levels to get to the full 3 reward stars available to collect in each level. I also caught my wife moving the colourful boxes around the screen and muttering how addictive it was. I´ve read that children as young as 5 years old have learned the ideas behind solving algebraic equations using this very clever game. It really is a great game for parents to play along with their kids – and freshen up their own maths skills. Starting with removing starbursts, and moving on to adding negative dragons to both sides, DragonBox introduces deviding and multiplying terms in the same step-by-step, easy to understand way. The game is great for young kids who have never heard of algebra as well as older kids who don´t completely understand the usual ´we move this one over here and devide this one´ type explanations. Read the reviews on iTunes and Google Play to see how much kids (plus parents and teachers) are loving this game. DragonBox+ contains an additional 100 standard equations featuring good old fashioned letters, to help your child become a master of algebra, even finding the most difficult looking equations easy to solve. DragonBox and DragonBox+ are universal apps. Buy once and play on your iPad (like my kids) or on your iPhone (like me and my wife). The games are reasonably priced – DragonBox costs £1.99 and DragonBox+ that comes with an extra 100 games costs £3.99. DragonBox has definitely got me smiling this summer – http://www.dragonboxapp.com
