Word Owl’s Word Search is a big, educational & colorful word search for children. This Third Grade Edition of Word Owl’s Word Search features over 300 sight words for children in or around the 3rd Grade. These words have been compiled from numerous sight word lists provided by real 3rd grade classes in different schools. Help your kid learn and retain several words while having fun!

√ Over 300 different sight words
√ Ten words to find per puzzle
√ Letter and background color options
√ Sharp colorful retina resolution graphics
√ Features popular sight words used in numerous schools & books

Simply slide your finger across the letters to form a word that’s displayed on the left side of the screen. The words are in the word search vertically, horizontally, and diagonally. Words will be displayed in a forward or backwards facing manner. Have fun!

(Sight words are commonly used words that children are encouraged to memorize as a whole by sight, so that they can automatically recognize these words when they see them without having to use any distracting strategies. Sight words account for a large percentage of the words used in literature for children. One advantage for children being able to recognize sight words automatically is that the child will be able to identify the majority of words in a book before they even attempt to read it. When the child is able to do that they’ll be able to concentrate on the meaning and comprehension as they read without having to stop to figure out the actual word.)

March Mobile App Progress Report

7 Apr
2015

March was another busy… where did the time go?….kind of month. There are a lot of changes and movements going on in my life right now outside of app development. I’m behind where I wanted to be with app development progress overall, but I’m not too down about it because I have been getting a lot of efficient design & development done in small amounts of time.  Eventually things will smooth out some and I’ll put my app development on some sort of schedule. Here’s an overview of what happened in app development land in March….

  • Quiz of Medicine received an update on Android(Google Play & Amazon). This version 1.2 update included a new loading icon and faster startup load times. I also fixed lag issues on older devices and text that would display oddly on certain devices.
  • The biggest update this month was the Professor Piggy Bank 1.5 update (1.6 on Android). This update included enhanced coin graphics, new piggy bank colors in save mode, enhanced chalkboard graphics, faster load times, new graphics in play mode, a new loading icon, and a new app icon. The overall design and function of this app is great, but I felt like it deserved an update to enhance the look of it in certain areas. When I first developed this app I targeted phones but it should have initially been designed with tablets in mind, which means higher resolution graphics, and that’s part of what I accomplished with this update.
  • I also worked on the numbers game that I’ve mentioned in previous posts. A few months ago I thought I would have been near completion or totally finished with this app, but I haven’t been staying up late working on apps like I used to. Lately for this app I’ve been squeezing development time into bite size chunks throughout a couple of days each week. However, there has been a lot of progress made on this app and I think it will be ready for release in the coming months.

Earlier this year I made a rough overestimated schedule of my app releases for this year and the first half of next year. I’ll be revisiting this list soon and rearranging it to a more realistic schedule so I won’t be so hard on myself as the months go by. Regardless or not of how many or which apps will be released within that time frame I know one thing is for sure….all of them will be unique and awesome. Until next time ∞

January Mobile App Progress Report

5 Feb
2014

I’ve decided to start writing a post after each month were I kind of outline the progress I made in that month, and maybe also briefly write about what I’m working on in the current month. These posts will mainly be focused on what I worked on in the previous month though. Let’s do this…….

January was a super busy month that went by quickly.

  • I worked on and published several ports. I won’t be going into detail about which specific apps and what specific app store yet, but I’m interested in seeing the outcome of this once everything goes live. In total I submitted eight apps and all of them were eventually approved. I ran into some problems with a couple of them, but I was able to resolve those issues somewhat quickly. More specific details on all of this later……
  • I also worked on and completed a couple of app updates this month. Lightspeed Bit Bit received another performance improvement update to take advantage of newer devices. Jumbo Egg Hunt received some aesthetic updates for retina resolution iOS devices.
  • I made a rough schedule of what specific apps I would like to release this year. I have several app ideas, but I’ve narrowed my focus down to six for this year that I’m hoping to complete and release.
  • A fellow developer who’s working on some artwork for one of my games made some progress. This app isn’t currently one of the six apps faintly mentioned above, but it could be swapped for one of them or maybe even added to the list if time permits.
  • I started working on a neat medicine app that’s filled with useful information for those interested. I’ll be continuing to work on it this month and hopefully finishing it……
