Candy Train

Remember Pipe Dreams…. I first encountered this on Windows 3.1 claasic game. The objective of the game is to place the pipes from one end to another end. And make sure that the water will smoothly flo to the other end.

Pipe Dream for Windows 3.1

Here is its reincarnation… Candy Train.

Platform: iOS (iPod Touch, iPhone, iPad [HDMode])
Price: FREE

Similarity: Instead of Pipes, it became rails. And the train will just go round and round.

Objective: The train will just go round and round and you need to get the additionar train car. All you need to do is to prepare the tracks for the train. When the train get longer it became faster and difficult to manuver.


When you get the caboose a station will appear. And you need to let the train to get in to the station, so the train cars will be left at the station on the next level.

However you must remember DO NOT LET THE TRAIN CRASH!!!


Why addictive, because of compeion to the high score.. The game rules is so simple but it is hard.

My highest score is 24,120. And my friend, who introduced the game to me has a score of 36,xxx…

Here are some screen shot for this game.




Wring on iPad

I love writing on my notebook. The most effective way for me for note taking is writing, however these days, it is hard to share something if it is not in digital copy and scanning you notebook is not a goo approach.

Why writing is the best?
Do you know that when you right you remember the strokes.

Honesly I don’t review my notesmuch often. I remember what I write because of the strokes. But in typing, aside from being a slow typer. It is hard o remember what you type.

Here are some tools in iPad that I bought for writing.

A. Penultimate
Like: when i write it looks my hand writing is nice.
Dislike: hard rest algorithm is not that good, cannot type, wrong touch you will go to next or next next page.

B. Notes plus
Like: you can type, write, and put shapes. Can eport to PDF. can be sync with Google Docs. Nice wrist pad for hard writing
Dis like: Bad hand writing.

Here is my stylus for writing


Word Press for iPad

I’m back and guess what, I’m using Word Press for iPad. This is a simple tool that allows you to write something specially while you are on the go.

This is so simple and all that you can do is to write,add photos, and add videos.

If you are expect enough you can use HTML commands to add color and change font. Who cares, you want art go to your PC. You want simple and fast, use mobile device.

By the way why we blog? Because we want to write and share something.

I tried some featues that i think useful for this application.
