Pronunciations of Chinese letters, articles with Ruby, help improve your Japanese study more efficiently.

Party Play – Let Your Guests Pick The Music

AppWatch

Ever been to a party and been stressed about the kind of playlist you should have? Not only is it a HUGE responsibility, but it’s one that someone shouldn’t have to do alone.

This is where Party Play comes in.

Party Play is an app that lets you and your guests create a collaborative playlist so you don’t have to be so concerned if people will rag on your song choices. Think of it as a free social jukebox that has you share a collaborative playlist with friends, family or other party guests.

How does it work?

Everyone simply downloads the app and connects to Wi-Fi or a hotspot. From there, you can add music to one central playlist.

This essentially means adding any song to the playlist from music you’ve previously downloaded to your phone or any song on the Spotify and Apple Music library.

And if you’re itching for your song to play next, you can set easily set it up to do so. All you have to do is move your song to the top of the queue and wait for it to play!

However, if someone else (another collaborator) is also yearning to play their song pick, he or she can bump your song down in the queue. If this happens, you’ll receive a push notification that will let you know and that you’ll have to start battling your way back to the top again.

Party Play is the perfect addition to your next get-together, but it’s also awesome if you’re somewhere you don’t have access to the internet. Here, you can easily use downloaded music or connect to a hotspot for Wi-Fi use.

But if you’re so keen on your song to be played next, you can purchase “Drops” which are in-app purchases that give you the power to control what’s coming up next on the playlist. Simply, the more Drops you have, the more your favorite music gets played first.

And if you also have an affinity for DJing, but there’s someone else on the rotation, Party Play will send you a notification and give you 20 seconds to battle it out for the top spot.

Party Play not only keeps the party going but can even turn the party into a game itself by competing for music selections. So if you’re interested in this concept, download Party Play for free from the iOS or Google Play stores today.

helio – Making Learning Fun and Interesting

Consumer Update

It’s pretty safe to say that parents know how difficult it can be to get their kids to study at home. If it’s one thing we know, however, it’s that kids don’t mind studying when they’re having fun.

A great learning tool that takes this concept to heart? The helio.

The helio is a light projector that emits LED light and shines educational content on the ceiling. It can be used to play games, study, and have interaction family fun. In addition, helio provides soothing light before going to bed.

Helio contains interchangeable discs that reflect the child’s interest and learning level. Their grade-specific discs cover anything from reading to wildlife to vehicles.

For example, if your child wishes to learn more about the solar system, you can put the astronomy disc on and it will illuminate above your child’s bed at night.

In addition, the helio assists children in putting down the iPad and instead using their imagination. With the help of teaching professionals, helio has created a big database for children’s education and entertainment purposes.

By visually and interactively learning, children won’t even notice that they’re studying – which is essentially the objective of what the helio is trying to achieve. With this method of learning, it creates higher content retention while also doubling as a soothing and calming night light.

The helio comes in five different colors for both girls and boys along with five starter discs.

So if you’re interested in your child learning new and interesting topics without even realizing it, then head on over to heliosite.com!
