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

FREE FOR A LIMITED TIME!

SkySafari isn't just an award-winning iPhone astronomy app - it's now available for Mac OS X! 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. It's more than just a star chart - it's a celestial travel guide!

My 3 year old son adores this app.
Out of all my apps, he comes to this one time and again, and i find it to be one of the best kids apps… He started playing this app when he was 2 1/2 … I can see him still playing this app at 5. It has lots of room for a child to grow into. -- Tammattam

Great for pre-schoolars (v2.0)
