Improvements or alternatives for YouTube Kids on Android & iOS

How can I address the following problems with the YouTube Kids app: (1) no whitelisting, (2) no downloads and (3) stability problems? The solution can be another app that offers similar control over viewing, or any other tips or configuration options, but the end result must be suitable to put in the hands of a young toddler. Thank you!

Sleep app with custom-by-day alarms

What sleep app (available for iPhone) allows you to set multiple alarms for specific days? E.g. Mon/Wed/Fri wake up at 8AM, Tu/Th wake up at 9AM, weekends no alarm at all. Willing to pay if I have assurance that the app actually has this dealbreaker feature.

iOS app that has historical weather data

I have the best weather app, Dark Skies. I am looking for an app that will show me historical weather data by day, or something close to it. My ideal app would show me today, the record temps, and then just historical data for the date. E.g., the temp last year, the year before, in 1964, etc. I'm most interested in temperature data, but other stuff like precipitation would be great too. I feel like some enterprising soul must have made an app like this.

What's the best Clash of Clans-like iOS game that isn't P2W?

My 6th grader really enjoys Clash of Clans, and has enjoyed the Advance Wars games on DS, but is not having fun with Clash's enforced waiting. I'd like to find a similar turn-based iOS strategy game where we can just pay for it once rather than get tangled up in freemium marketing. Unfortunately, this isn't my genre and I have no context for weeding through the recommendations Google brings me. Any expert opinions?

How do I thwart the app store redirect ads?

Chrome in iOs. Sites like ESPN now frequently redirect me to the app store without my clicking any ads. It happens frequently enough that I've stopped going to some sites I used to like. Is there anything I can do to stop this? Is Chrome the problem? Hope me!

iOS (Android too) map app to plot all my places of interest

I'm looking for a map app for my iPhone that would let me input lots of spots I might want to visit and when I open the app it shows me which are near me. I keep browser bookmarks of places that look interesting nearby but I'd love to just open a map and find out which is nearby when I'm driving around doing other things. I've played with the built-in iOS map app, Google maps, and MapQuest but I can't seem to figure out how to do it. Thanks in advance!

Best iOS Twitter app?

What's the best Twitter app for iOS these days? I have been using the official app but the increasing amount of ads is getting to me. One feature that it does well is let me hide thumbnails in tweets. Is there an alternate app that gives that option? I've seen Tweetbot and Twitterific mentioned, but don't have any experience with either. Thanks!

Need to record 8 hours of continuous video, on the cheap

I need to record an upcoming training classroom session from start to finish. All the videocameras I see, as well as iDevice apps that I can find, record in high def and can't store nearly enough footage. Low quality video, akin to a 1990s camcorder, is a tradeoff I'm willing to accept. I need the 8 hours to run continuously - no pauses to change storage cards or upload content in order to create space for more filming. Is there an app that will do this? If not, what's the least expensive solution?

My iPad has stopped showing images in Safari. Why?

About four days ago, my iPad stopped showing images in web pages--there's either a grayed out box where they should be or they're just missing. All the text loads fine, it really just looks like image resources are deciding not to load. This happens in Safari, and in Safari view controller views like Tweetbot (so it's Webkit-wide?) Force quit Safari, restarted, still broken. Upgraded it from 9.2 to 9.3.1 this morning, and same thing. Did I toggle some setting inadvertently? Or is this a bug, and if so, how do I fix it?

Why does my iPhone 6S keep hanging up on me?

I love my new iPhone 6S, but I have been experiencing an annoying issue in voice calls. The call randomly cuts out - it's as if my face is coming in contact with the red "end call" icon. I understand that all iPhones from the start have had a "proximity sensor" to prevent this issue, but it seems as if this sensor isn't doing its job. I never had this issue with my previous two iPhones. The software (iOS 9.2) is up to date as of today. Is there a setting I forgot about, or should I take it back to Apple? [more inside]

Since late October/early November, my iPhone 6s (128 GB Verizon, not jailbroken) has been ruthlessly leaking cellular data for no obvious reason.

How to use ios Duet display as primary display for my PC on a stick?

Hi all, I have a Lenovo 'PC on a stick'. It runs windows 10 and I would like to use my iPad as a primary display for it using the Duet app on iOS but it seems like in order to connect you have to go in and activate Duet on the PC first - which is a sort of catch 22 because I need a display in order to do that. Any ideas on how I could make Duet 'activate' as soon as the PC boots up and connect to the app on my ipad?
