My First Greek Book Volume 1 is an educational application for your iPad that helps beginners and children learn the basics of the Greek language. It shows you how to read and write, it also pronounces letters and words for you to hear how to say them correctly. It includes a total of 12 learning lessons along with other sections such as songs, “which include video”, flash cards, etc that all aid in the users learning.
Now there are lots of learning applications now, which are great to interact with. However there are better learning applications, not necessarily for the Greek language but as an overall user interface. Its focused for children which is good, but it still seems it could be a bit more fluid and precise. Also $9.99 is quite a bit to spend on an app, even though its educational, you want details and the overall app to be at quite a high standard. But this is really nitpicking, after all a user interface wont mean to much to a younger child and they will soon get the gist of using it and begin to learn a new language.

After getting frustrated with the lack of reliability of existing restaurant review sites and apps, we created LocalSpin to get restaurant, bar and coffee shop recommendations directly from your Facebook friends, rather than complete strangers.
The app also allows people to quickly write a recommendation (<30 seconds) to allow people to share more frequently. Given that people are only sharing with friends (their privacy is protected outside their network of friends) they are more likely to leave recommendations.
Lastly, users can look directly at their friends’ list of favorite places to get inspiration for the next restaurant they want to try or if they are traveling to a new city.
