iPad App of the Week: FIFA Official App

FIFA Official App

Great apps are a big part of what makes for a great mobile (or even desktop) device. As iPad users, we’ve been fortunate that right from the start there have been rich pickings when it comes to great iPad apps – and we continue to be spoiled for choice when it comes to finding excellent apps for just about any purpose. Our weekly picks for iPad App of the Week celebrate some of these, and appear here every Saturday.

This week’s pick is FIFA Official App. This is of course the official app from football’s governing body, FIFA, freshly updated yesterday for the 2014 World Cup. The World Cup is the world’s biggest sporting event and my long-time co-favorite sporting event alongside the summer Olympics – and the FIFA Official App should serve as the perfect companion app to enjoy the tournament with.

iPad App of the Week: Juxtaposer

Juxtaposer for iPad

iPad apps are, and have always been, a big part of what makes the iPad such a powerful device. Great apps, and unique apps that you just don’t find anywhere else, are one of the hallmark features of the iPad. They have been since Day 1, and scores of great developers and publishers continue to produce apps that are exclusively for the iPad. Our weekly picks for Best iPad App of the Week are published here every Saturday.

This week’s pick is Juxtaposer, an app that lets you combine multiple pictures to create fun and striking new images. Better still, it’s got an easy to use interface – that makes the process quite quick.

Here’s a little slice of the Juxtaposer App Store introduction:

Take any element from one picture and add it to another. Remix your pets into a mythical creature, swap a statue’s head with your friend’s, or combine photos into surreal and beautiful works of art. Juxtaposer has the power and features of a professional creative tool, but is simple to use and just as importantly, it’s fun!

They have been since Day 1, and scores of great developers and publishers continue to produce apps that are exclusively for the iPad. Our weekly picks for Best iPad App of the Week are published here every Saturday.

This week’s pick is Little Builders – Trucks, Cranes & Diggers for Kids – which promises (and delivers) construction fun for kids. It is made by Fox & Sheep, the same developers who created the wonderful Petting Zoo iPad app.

This app is aimed at children aged 8 and under, a demographic that I don’t quite match (on most days I keep my mental age a tad above that). But the app’s icon and intro page drew my attention and I decided to give it a whirl last night – and I’m very glad I did. That was even before I realized it was made by Fox & Sheep too.

This week’s pick is Animoto Video Maker, a great little app for turning your iPad and iOS photos into polished and pro looking videos in just a few minutes.

Animoto is easy to use so you can produce a short video to share with family and friends very quickly. I’ve used it often to send a video link to family members who couldn’t make it to an event within minutes of the event ending.

This week’s pick is SpeakaZoo, which offers up a unique and fun zoo full of animals that will have conversations with you and your kids.

When I first saw a promo for the app, I thought it looked like it would only have appeal for very young children, but something about it struck me so I installed it, spent some time with it, and also had my 11 year old daughter give it a try.
