Smart Baby Series

If you are reading this article, most likely you would have bought a copy of Smart Baby Series. This has been one of my best selling Apps in Apple App Store having sold a few thousands copies. I believe that most of you who have bought the App would have known Glenn Doman teaching methods for baby - that is flashing flash cards to stimulate the brain activities and keeping the neurons active thus increasing their intelligence.

I am a parent myself and went through the same GD teaching method to my son. He is now a 4-year old boy who is active and very smart. I am a believer of GD teaching having see the result of my son.

For your information, Smart Baby Series target babies 0-6 months old. You might comment that your baby isn't interested in the flash cards shown to them, but in reality they are learning. Just do your diligent 2-3 times a day and see the result for yourself. You are most likely to get a smart active baby compared to those that just lie there on the mattress or sitting quietly on the stroller when you bring them out.

To the few people who have rated the App badly either because they do not know how to use the App, thinks that the App is buggy or doesn't know about GD teaching concept, I would like to take this opportunity to guide you through.

If you are asking why Black and White cards only? Simple - baby see only Black and White. :)


The above is the main screen. Here's the definition for each legend.

  • A - configuration page; 
  • B - read about Baby Training and FAQ;
  • C - Tap on the module that you wish to teach your baby.

Configuration
  • Baby Age - Selecting this option has an effect on the number of cards displayed to the baby. For 0-2 months, the system will shows 5 cards at a time to the baby. Everyday, one card will be replaced with another new card. The rationale is to prevent over-stressed to baby learning. Selecting more than 2 months will show every cards that the system have.
  • Sound - Turning on and off the music and sound
  • Transition - For the Shape flash cards, using the default transition is good for baby 0-2 months babies because each card is pop-up on the center and replacing the previous card. This limit the movement of their eyes which is pretty weak at this time. After 2 months, switch to Random transitions and you will see cards flying in from different directions. This helps in training their eye muscles and control.
  • Duration - Recommended duration for babies is 3 seconds. Enough time to catch their attention and reduce their boredom.

Flash card session

During the session, tap on any of the 4 corners as shown (highlighted in red) to exit to main menu. There is no sliding left or right here (except Smart Toddler series) because the displaying of the flash cards is a controlled timing (read up more on Glenn Doman teaching method). Tapping on the corner is to prevent baby accidentally touching the screen to exit the training session prematurely.

Updated: We have updated the app so that bigger kids can swipe left or right to slide to the next card. All you need to do is to go to the Setting and select MANUAL transition.


I hope that helps. Thank you again for your support, feel free to drop me your feedback. I will definitely take in your valuable feedback to update the App to make it even better.

Is this app for IPad? The home page does not fit the size of my phone. I am unable to access any options. My baby loves it but I am stuck only showing him the abc's.

Getting Watch Maker and third party watch faces to work on an iOS connected Android Wear

Many people loves their Apple Watch, so do I. As Android Wear improves over the past year,  we started to take it seriously. I have got an Huawei Watch with cool round 400x400 pixel AMOLED display. It looks like a traditional watch with a glance at it. The cool thing about having an Android Wear is that you have access to tons of cool watch faces. Apple Watch is limited by the fact that it has limited selection build by Apple, no developer has been given access to build any watch face for it.

You must be wondering how do you connect your Android Wear to iPhone and get access to third party watch faces. The Android Wear iOS app provided by Google provides access to some limited selection of watch faces, you can't use any of those that are out there on the internet developed for Watch Maker or Facer.

Thanks to Kevin from XDA Forum, you are in luck now. 

You can now install third party watch faces on your Android Wear and get connected to iPhone for notifications and Google Now. It may …

Why iPad

A lot have been said about the iPad, you would have already know what it have or have not. Just to re-cap, the iPad does not have USB port and webcam, it does not support java and flash. So why iPad when all these supposedly standards are not included?

First of all, iPad is not a computer. It's not intended to replace your PC or laptop. It serves as a in-between for your phone and PC. It's give you the convenience of instant start to your surfing habit, reading emails, ebooks, watching movies etc on your bedside, by the pool or on the plane, anywhere you can think of including your bathroom.
