Root, Root, Root for the HomeTeam App and Organize Your Sports Schedules

As a kid, I played Little League. I was awful at first and hated it, but grew to love it and even won the championship in my final year playing. There were multiple practices and games each week. To keep track of it all, my mom had the schedule front and center on the fridge, crossing off each game as it was completed. These days, however, kids are into 19 different sports at once. I …

Sound Off At Your Friends With the Listen Up! App

Scrabble Meets Math In the Super Fun iPhone App GoSum

Math app for iPhone

In college I was really torn about what direction to go in. Most people are either left brained or right brained. They’re either analytic or creative. Me? I’m both. I was seriously not sure whether to go for an English degree or a Math one. I loved solving math problems (big fan of puzzles), but I’ve also always had a huge love of writing. Maybe it’s because I’m a Gemini. The whole two-faced thing. My birthday also …
