This week’s pick is Storehouse, an app that claims to be ‘the easiest way to create and discover beautiful stories’ and does a great job of living up to that promise.

I’ve seen a large number of iPad apps with similar purposes, but Storehouse stands out right away due to the spectacular photography in the stories and the app’s wonderful, gesture-based interface.

Here’s a slice of its App Store intro:

BUILT FOR MOBILE
Storehouse was designed for mobile, from the intuitive touch-based interface to the way we allow you to create and share on-the-go.
UNLEASH YOUR CREATIVITY
We’ve made laying out photos, videos, and text so easy that anybody can create beautiful stories. Easily add photos and videos from your iPad Camera Roll, Dropbox, Flickr, and Instagram. You don’t need to be a designer to put together something stunning.

This week’s pick is Stack the States, a great, fun and award-winning app for learning the US states.

This is one of the best and most fun educational games for the iPad that I’ve seen. My 5th grade daughter and I are both long-time fans of Stack the States. Here’s a little intro to how the game works:

As you learn state capitals, shapes, geographic locations, flags and more, you can actually touch, move and drop the animated states anywhere on the screen. Carefully build a stack of states that reaches the checkered line to win each level.
You earn a random state for every successfully completed level. All of your states appear on your own personalized map of the United States. Try to collect all 50! As you earn more states, you begin to unlock the four free bonus games: Map It, Pile Up, Puzzler and Capital Drop. Four games in one!

iPad App of the Week: QuizUp, The Biggest Trivia Game in the World

This week’s pick is QuizUp: The Biggest Trivia Game in the World. I should note right away that this is not a ‘true’ iPad app – but rather an iPhone app that runs just fine on the iPad. The only major way this affects the app is that it works in portrait mode only, a limitation that quite a few full iPad apps also have. Given the type of app it is, there’s no negative impact at all with running it in 2X mode on the iPad.

If you enjoy trivia games at all, it will be near impossible not to avoid getting seriously hooked on this one.
