Simple States is a fun and engaging educational app, designed to make learning U.S. geography fun for all ages.

Simple States includes six mini games that help students learn the U.S. states and capitals and other geo facts while having fun. An interactive study area makes learning state names, capitals, nicknames, flowers, trees, and birds a breeze. Simple States can even pronounce state names in American English.

The “Smart Mode” feature intuitively monitors the student’s progress and automatically adjusts game play according to each student’s proficiency. As students demonstrate knowledge of particular states and capitals, Simple States modifies itself to present fewer questions relating to the learned material and more questions about material yet to be learned. This feature decreases player frustration and uses a proven scaffolding approach to learning; enabling students to learn at their own pace and retain newly acquired knowledge.

Whether you are a student, teacher or parent, we all know the weekly spelling drill. Monday, we get our weekly words. Wednesday, we have our pre-quiz and Friday is the spelling test. Of course, during the week there are endless impromptu spelling quizzes, -- at home, in the car, at dinner, before bed -- you get the idea. Well, all that may have just changed -- say hello to SpellBoard!

The critically acclaimed iPad app is now available for the Mac, and the quizzes are completely interchangeable between platforms. Those of you new to SpellBoard will find that SpellBoard allows you to create any spelling quiz in any language. That's right, you could even use this for your Spanish class!

SpellBoard provides a fast and intuitive way for you to enter your list of spelling words. All you need to do is enter the word (correctly spelled) and the grade level (1-12). SpellBoard will take it from there using the Macs built in speech technology to quiz you on the words (if desired you can record audio in your own voice as well). Optionally, you can enter a phrase for the word, antonyms and/or synonyms for the word. That's it! Now you are ready to study your word list and be quizzed on it.

And possibly best of all, you can share your quiz with other SpellBoard users including SpellBoard for the iPad and SpellBoard Buddy for the iPhone/iPod touch. So that means only one person needs to enter the weeks' spelling words and then they can share it with other SpellBoards.

Additionally, SpellBoard allows for multiple student profiles so you can track the performance of any student across any number of quizzes. You can also track how well multiple students perform against a particular quiz.

SpellBoard also has a study mode where you can walk through a quiz seeing and hearing the word and phrase, you can even get a definition for the word via the built in dictionary on the Mac.

Download iTunes app link Italian FlashCards BASIC

* FREE * Learn 200 Basic Italian words and expressions! -- all with native speaker audio. Includes flashcards and exercises.

*** Over 5,000 words in the FULL VERSION ****

Features and Benefits:

◊ Over 200 Italian words and expressions - each and every one with native speaker audio.

◊ Every word includes a native speaker's audio recording.

◊ Flashcard review and exercises to aid memorization.

◊ Learning-list testing technique ensures word retention.


*** iPhone and iPad versions also available on the iTunes App Store - just search for "Declan Italian".

---------------------------------------
Italian Audio FlashCards is a foreign language vocabulary learning tool by Declan Software. The full version includes around 5,000 words and phrases each with a native speaker audio recording. Words are organized into approximately 100 WordFiles with each WordFile containing up to 110 words.

The Learning List: The words are learned based on a Learning List. The Learning List contains a subset of all the words in the WordFile – 10 words by default (although this can be changed by users). The Learning List allows users to concentrate learning a small group of words at any one time. Once a word is learned (by reviewing the Learning List and completing the Exercises) it is removed from the Learning List and is replaced by another, as yet unlearned word from the WordFile. This continues until the whole WordFile is learned.

Exercises: Words in the learning list should first be Reviewed using the “Review Learning List” option. Then users can move to the Exercises which include the Meaning Exercise, the Word Exercise, the Spelling Exercise and the Listening Exercise. Once all the exercises have been correctly completed, the word is marked as complete, removed from the Learning List and replaced by a new word. However, if the user gets one answer wrong in any of the exercises, then all the exercises must be completed again for that one word. This ensures comprehensive learning and retention.

Managing the Learning List: After a new WordFile is loaded the Learning List size is automatically set to 10. The number of words in the Learning List can be set by adding or removing words to the Learning List in the “Review Words” feature. In the “Task” menu select “All Words in WordFile” and then return to the main page. The select “Review All WordFile Words”. As you progress through the words in the WordFile words can be added to and dropped from the Learning List using the “Add to Learning List” / “Drop from Learning List” button. If you end up changing the number of words in the Learning List, that number will be maintained as words are learning and dropped from the Learning List, and new words are automatically added the Learning List to replace learned words.?

Loading new WordFiles: To switch to another wordfile simply press the “Load Another WordFile” button and then select the WordFile you desire from the “Load WordFile” table. The Audio FlashCards comes preloaded with 3 WordFiles – all other WordFiles are downloaded by the application as required using an (WiFi or 3G) internet connection. If a WordFile needs to be downloaded before it can be used it will have a grey icon next to it in the “Load WordFile” table. To start downloading the WordFile simply select that WordFile and then press the “Start Download” button.

------------------------------

Other language versions of FlashCards available in the Mac App Store include French, Spanish, German, Chinese (Simplified), Chinese (Traditional), Japanese, Korean, Bahasa Indonesian, Portuguese, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian, Greek and Hebrew.

How to learn to understand the world - a question that has an answer!

How can children learn a foreign language within half a year? And why does a regular person spend years of difficult studies on the same task? It's all because of a certain skill that children aren’t aware of, and adults have forgotten.

We all speak in our native language, perfectly. However, not all of us have received high grades during our mother tongue classes, in school. A language is an audio-visual dynamic environment of images. You can either imagine it as a system of rules and regulations, or you can jump into it as if you are entering a river. To learn it, is figuratively speaking, to learn how to swim. Once you have achieved the basics, you can learn the technical theory, and how to use it correctly.
Here are a few examples in which our system is especially efficient:

1. Learn basic phrases and vocabulary. Quickly and elegantly.
Without tedious study and repetition, you can learn basic vocabulary that will be sufficient in explaining oneself in public.

2. Begin hearing and understanding native speakers
You will no longer have to think long and hard before understanding what your conversation partner has just said. You will understand him naturally, as it happens to you in your own native language. Every word or phrase is pronounced by two narrators (male and female), who pronounce words in various intonations and speeds. From the very first moment, you will submerge yourself into the richness and variety of a new language.

3. Overcome your psychological barriers
A foreign language, will be perceived as pleasant and interesting, its study- fun and addictive. You will begin to see the results of your study quite quickly.

4. Learn how to study.
We are offering you to discover the skill, that which you already have, that helps you learn a new language as if you were in its natural spoken environment.
Moreover, we appeal to the experience that you once had when you were learning your mother tongue. We will assist you in remembering your feelings, and repeating them in a new language; in an aware state of mind, so that later you can use that skill independently.

Researchers, Scientists, Engineers, Students, Politicians, Economists, Political Analysts, Financial Analysts, Statisticians, and most of us the practitioners use statistics to answer questions or to support decision making that require data analysis. Statistics help to describe the results of, among others, investigations, experiments, and observations. When data about the subject or object of interest is somehow comprehensive, data analysis using descriptive statistics may be what is needed.
Unfortunately, in the world of statistics, things may not be that straightforward. The population of interest may not be fully observable or accessible. Hence, the statistician will have to make inference or, in statistics terms, appeal to inferential statistics. Inferential statistics involve statistical tests. One of the major issues facing statisticians and researchers is to choose which test to use. The choice involves first a decision between two families of test statistics: parametric and nonparametric. Then, a choice of specific statistical test must be made.
AroniSmartStat™ intends to help beginners, practitioners and most advanced statisticians and researchers to navigate this tricky step in learning, research, and interpretation and application of or action on results. To achieve these goals, AroniSmartStat™ is built around four modules that provide the four main benefits:
1.The specific module of AroniSmartStat™ dedicated to Statistical tests offers an in-depth, user friendly and intuitive reference and selection tool that will facilitate the task, save time, while being rigorously thought out.
2.The module dedicated to Probability Distribution is a user-friendly interface with most of the usual statistical distributions, their properties and their graphical representations.
3. For researchers, advanced statisticians, students, and other users, the two remaining modules: Descriptive analysis and Statistical testing, help conduct descriptive analyses, conduct statistical analyses and test hypotheses on real or empirical data provided by the users themselves.
4.The graphing capability included in the tool will help to easily simulate distributions and to create histograms and scattergrams.
Statisticians and users of statistics need a tool that can help refresh their memories and eventually provide the link needed to connect statistical concepts, while using it to solve real life problems. AroniSmartStat™ implements an approach to quickly understand statistical methods and at the same time conduct rigorous statistical researches, without writing any code.
AroniSmartStat™ is self-contained. AroniSmartStat™ is a statistical software destined to be used by researchers, students, and practitioners.
AroniSmartStat™ is a cost effective tool, either in time, ease of use, access, or price. It is the best statistical reference and research tool for the busiest and savvy statistician and statistical practitioner and researcher.

Phonix is a new easy way to study vocabulary and information from any subject. The program is a computer flash card system that allows you to create flash card stacks, and within each stack, flash cards for use with any subject. This gives you the ability to organize your cards, creating different stacks for different occasions. You can use and study the stacks just as you would regular flash cards, but without the hassel of writing them by hand.

One of the most unique feature that sets us apart from other flash card apps is that you can import and export stacks. For example, if a friend has already created the 1000 words for the bio test tomorrow, there is no need for you to do it too. He just simply has to export the stack and then he can give it to you to import and use in your program. That's surely something you can't do with real flash cards!

Another unique feature is our monthly app skin updates. As of its launch, the app only contains the "original" skin, which is what you see when the program loads. While this provdes a fun and friendly environment in which to study flashcards, we felt you needed a little more customization in your study space and so every month for the first 5 months after release, we will be realeasing an update containing a new app skin from a professional artist (way nicer quality then the homebrew "original" skin).

Updates are set to include:
- Printable Cards (For all you die hard retro flash card fans)
- The Ability to Download Premade Stacks
- The Ability to use pictures and multimedia on cards
- And Much More

SkySafari's interface has been redesigned from scratch for the Mac, using 100% native Cocoa OS X controls. SkySafari's iOS OpenGL astronomy engine soars on the Mac, and a full-sized monitor, mouse, and keyboard open up a universe of new possibilities.

Like the SkySafari iPhone apps, SkySafari for Mac OS X comes in three versions. This is the basic version. It shows you 120,000 stars, plus 220 of the best-known star clusters, nebulae, and galaxies in the sky. It displays the Solar System's major planets and moons using NASA spacecraft imagery, and includes the best-known asteroids and comets.

SkySafari accurately shows you the sky from any place on Earth, at any time up to one million years in the past or future. It includes encyclopedic descriptions of the constellations, stars, and planets written by professional astronomers. And it contains hundreds of images from NASA space missions, the Hubble Space Telescope, and the world's foremost astro-photographers.

SkySafari has a "Night" button to preserve your dark adaptation as you're exploring the night sky. The Time Flow feature lets you animate the night sky using simple VCR controls - follow the motion of the stars and planets as SkySafari compresses days, months, and years into a few seconds.

SkySafari takes advantage of Apple's latest Mac OS X features. It understands multitouch gestures on Macs with multitouch trackpads, and supports OS X 10.7 (Lion) full-screen mode. And its responsive, fluid interface borrows from the best aspects of SkySafari for iPhone. SkySafari for Mac OS X truly brings astronomy software into the 21st century.
