http://www.southernstars.com/products/skysafari_mac/download.html

Like our SkySafari iPhone apps, SkySafari for Mac OS X comes in three versions. This version - SkySafari Plus - is the intermediate one. It adds a hugely expanded database - and wired or wireless telescope control - to the basic version.

SkySafari Plus shows you 2.5 million stars, and 31,000 deep sky objects - including the entire NGC/IC catalog. It shows the Solar System's major planets and moons using NASA spacecraft imagery, and includes over 4,000 asteroids, comets, and satellites with updateable orbits. It can point your GoTo or "Push-To" telescope anywhere in the sky, using your Mac's built-in WiFi, or a USB-to-serial adapter.

SkySafari Plus 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 1100 encyclopedic descriptions of the constellations, stars, and planets written by professional astronomers. And it contains over 800 images from NASA space missions, the Hubble Space Telescope, and the world's foremost astro-photographers.

SkySafari Plus 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 Plus 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!

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.

## top #4 in Education category in US! ##

Your child will love to do math tasks - because this is a game - complete with levels, goals, nice graphics and music. Your child can practice all the elementary math operations, and you, as a parent, can set what task to practice. 

>> We have also version for iPad, look for Bubbling Math on iPad App Store
Highlights: 
* 9 different graphic levels with nice music and sounds - will make it difficult for you to stop your child from solving math tasks 
* Task configuration - easy, but powerful - to help you set what your child will practice - based on his age and skill 
* Parents section - with detailed results - you will know how many tasks your child has finished and you can even view which tasks your child finished incorrectly 
* We are motivating - not only to learn, but motivating to continue with additional tasks, because when each new level is unlocked, your child can also get 3 cups for every level (Bronze, Silver, Gold) - and it is not easy to get a Gold cup! 

We have developed this game with the help of children and teachers. Children have helped us make it fun, and teachers have ensured that it is right from an education point of view. 

3 easy steps to use: 
1. Start app and select the types of tasks that your child will practice 
2. Now you can leave your child alone - most children know exactly what they should do :-) Or you can just watch so you can see your child enjoying - yes, believe me - math tasks 
3. After your child has finished, you can go through the incorrect answers with your child, or just quickly look at the type of task that is causing the biggest problem 

Tips: 
- you can reset game to a default state. This is useful should you want to try the game before you give it to your child, or if you want to let your child start again (possibly at a different speed) 
- you can set the game speed in the Parents' section 

And we are leaving the best until the end – because this is just the beginning. We are preparing new levels, new challenges and new game types. 

What we do love is your feedback. Honestly, we do not know the tastes of all the parents and children worldwide, so if you have any ideas or requests for additional features, we will be only too pleased to incorporate them in the next versions. Please write to us at support@tappytaps.com. We are happy, when our customers are happy.

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.

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.

Enjoy the world of Statistics with AroniSmartStat™
