Monitor your kid’s computer use with Watchover.
Sit anywhere in your house and see what your kids are doing on their computers from your iPhone, iPod or iPad.

Free today with ‘App of the Day’. (20th September)

Cyber safety is a challenge. Unless you are leaning over your kid’s shoulders it is hard to know what they are doing on their computers.

Just like watching your kids in the park, Watchover lets you keep an eye on them from a distance. Watchover provides screenshots, so you see what they see, and records which programs are being used, when and for how long.

So while the children are in their bedrooms, you can connect from your iPhone, iPod or iPad and view what they’ve been doing for the last few days – or see what is on their screens right now.

“ Gotta love it! – The makers of VLC Streamer hit another home run for anyone with a teenager….I love this app and can keep an eye on my son now without having to constantly run to my laptop. Great job guys!”
– US Reviewer

“ I have a technologically advanced 13 year old boy (are there any other kind today?), and I’ve been looking hard for an unobtrusive, non-invasive way of keeping an eye on his internet browsing. We’ve tried various other approaches… Some of them got quite loud! Watchover provides concerned and caring parents with a way to discretely monitor their children’s online experience and the time they spend on their computers without overtly invading their space. Everybody wins. I will, sincerely, be recommending this app to every parent I know. Thanks, Lyn.”

Rune Gems


Normally $0.99.

Rune Gems is an excellent, well-presented game, friendly to both long and short play sessions.
Five Star from

The whole game is well executed and we really love to tap on one of the runes, for the animation is so smooth.
Five Star from

Rune Gems is a new & unique puzzle game.

1.You have a tray that holds 7 tiles.
2.Any tile you tap goes into your tray.
3.All tiles that enter your tray are automatically sorted by color and once you have EXACTLY 3 matching tiles of one of one color, those 3 tiles disappear and you score some points.

If you happen to tap on too many unmatched tiles so as to clog up the tray with no way to form a group of three matching tiles from the available tiles on the board, the game ends the second you add that 7th tile and it isn’t immediately part of an existing set.

A little trick:
Since a grouping can NEVER be more than 3, is to simply match as many triplets as fast as possible for an escalating speed combo bonus…but be careful, if in your haste you end up tapping on 4 red pieces, that 4th piece will now sit on the tray clogging stuff up until you find it two more partners. So always be mindful of what you put on the tray and make sure you can match it off quickly or letting it clog the flow up a bit is worth it if it is blocking your access to many other tiles underneath.
