Frequently I notice that iPhone/iPad apps initially go on sale initially at a reduced price. Moog's Animoog app, for example, debuted for a limited time at $0.99 and now costs $30. Obviously this is a strategy to get buzz and positive reviews. However, I'm bummed for missing this deal. Are there any websites that give the reader a heads up on killer apps that have just come out and which are being offered for practically nothing?

What are iOS apps like Snapseed
, but for video — to add basic effects and color correct videos shot with iPad, iPhone? VideoFX Live
doesn't do the job because it only allows shooting new videos, not edit existing.

Are there any iPhone/iPad apps or games that would help a 10-year old with her reading? When she reads out loud she does really well for a few minutes but quickly starts to skip words or guess them rather than trying to read what's on the page. She loves computer games so I was wondering if a reading game might motivate her.

I am a high school science teacher teaching five classes in three classrooms and my desk is in a fourth. I'd love to cut down on the amount of paper I have to schlep from room to room. Is there an iPad app available that would let me take attendance (and set absent as the default) and record hall passes, discipline, and parental contact?

I'm deploying a fleet of Motorola Xoom Android tablets to a couple dozen skilled trade workers. What apps do I need to include to help make my life and the lives of the workers as easy as possible? No internet access other than a few approved sites (managed by firewall and a wireless profile), but they'll be getting their email and calendar (all powered by GAFE) too.

Other than forcing them to enter their emails right into the right website, how can I simplify the current process of a person writing their email down, and a different person writing it into a spread sheet, and then someone else uploading the emails into the newsletter system? Is there an iPad app for this? [more inside]

I'd like to find a use for my iPod touch that will, in some way, enrich my life more than just playing endless games of Drop7. Some ideas I've had: reading great literature in ebook form; memory training
; becoming more virtuous
; studying a foreign language. What other things can I do?

My New Yorker Ipad app is crashing and closing within 20 seconds of opening an issue. I wrote new yorker tech support and they sent these instructions but they don't work:
Please try resetting your app using the following instructions.
1. From the iPad home screen, tap twice on the home button and the apps
that are running on your device will appear along the bottom row.
2. Hold down the icons until they "shake".
3. Tap on the red circle to reset your application. This does not delete
4. Double tap the home button again to return to all of your apps.
5. Open the app and allow for your library to update. All of your issues
should now be available for download.
I think they addressed the wrong problem. I've rewrote them but because of the holiday there is no reply. Any suggestions of what to try next? I'd like to be able to read what I've paid for
