Pocket Conspiracies, a group role-playing app

I wrote and programmed a group role-playing app! The gist is everyone playing needs to be in the same room and have the app on their smartphone, and then they perform together a series of challenges. It's for 3-10 players, takes 20-45 min, ages 10+. The app is free, doesn't have ads, and doesn't track your info beyond what is strictly needed to run the game. [more inside]

Fake app review detector

I've spent the past 18 months or so slogging away at apprecs.com, an app search engine that can detect review manipulation. You can see the worst offenders here. I posted this back when this was iOS-only, and I'd like to share some major new features I've added. [more inside]

Gramma' Ma English Grammar

I recently became interested in coding and wanted to provide my students with a way to study on the go, so I made this Android app. It is four hundred grammar questions in sixteen different categories and five exams of forty questions each. All the questions are modeled after the TOEFL PBT or ITP exams, which almost no one takes anymore so the study materials are limited and this will hopefully help them. [more inside]

Android app - Shortcuts for Waze 2.0

Unlike google maps, Waze has no way of creating shortcuts to destinations. So a while back I created a simple app to create shortcuts and released it into the wild. It got moderately popular, but people kept asking for features. [more inside]

Android App - Shortcuts for Waze

For some unfathomable reason Waze does not provide a built in way to add shortcuts to places (at least not that I could find, except maybe the home/work widget that doesn't work on my system). So I wrote this app to provide them. [more inside]

NumbersRound - Countdown-style number problem solver/app

I made a web-app that generates and efficiently solves Countdown-style number problems. Then I turned it into an android app (free of charge and also free of advertising). The javascript powering both is open-sourced under the MIT license.

Name That Student: An app to help teachers learn students' names

Name That Student is a free Android app to help teachers (post-secondary or K12) learn the names of their students. The app uses pictures of each student to create study flashcards and then to create quizzes: flashcard, multiple choice (one picture: 3-5 names), and reverse multiple choice (one name: four pictures).

Scrablet (Pro) Scrabble Trainer App

My husband and I wrote this Android app for serious Scrabble players to train their anagramming ability. Unlike similar apps it allows the player to choose between various scrabble competition dictionaries (SOWPODS, TWL, etc), to choose to get a rack that includes J, Z, Q or Z, to require that at least one 7-letter word is available and to specify whether or not blanks should be allowed. Word definitions are available, although in my experience most Scrabble players don't really care about those! There's also a free version people can try out that doesn't have some of these "professional" features. [more inside]

Savings planner

The thing started with a simple question: I have a savings plan without a fixed interest rate I regularly put money in. I even put extra money in it if there is something left at the end of the month or if my bank advisor tells me so. But when it came to examining the result I was left alone. All I could see was the actual balance. No one would tell me if my savings run well or not. So how do I find out the performance of my savings? What is the "real" interest rate I have got?

Meow Reader Android App

I made an Android app for the popular Meow Reader website. Swipe your way through our gallery of reading cats. Be amazed by their beauty and their solid grasp of the written word. These cats are the antithesis of LOLcats, educated, refined bookworms with a curiosity that could kill. [more inside]
