The following post is a guest post by none other than my amazing son Christopher. He offered to write a post for me and I took him up on it. He's written a post on something I cannot speak about intelligently so I am thankful for that he is tech savvy and chose a topic relevant to teens or parents who want to appear cool to their teens!
The Fantastic Four Apple Applications for Teens
Being a teen with two iPhones and an iPod touch, I know first hand what it’s like to have very little cash to spend on Apps. These are four inexpensive, fun applications that will add some pizzazz to Apple product.
Pandora is a music app in which you can listen to free music via radio. This app is not only free but will add some jazz (or any other genre you are into for that matter) to your iPhone, iPod, or iPad. How this app works is you enter the name of your favorite band, song, or album and Pandora searches the radio to find which stations are streaming it. Once you are connected, the song will play and you will have the option to bookmark the song or band. After your song is done, it will continue to play songs being streamed on the channel giving you a variety of new bands you haven’t heard of.
Word’s with friends
Word’s with friends is related to the world famous board game Scrabble. In this app you can play Scrabble against your friends, chat, or even meet some new people. This app is extremely competitive and answers the question, who of your friends is the Top Dog! Did I mention it’s free?
Tiny Wings is a $0.99 hot new game in which you are a little bird in a world of hills just waiting to be jumped. There is only one button and it is to dive. To get a higher score multiplier you must achieve challenges that get progressively harder with higher multipliers. The game is hard to grasp at first but once you start to get the hang of it, you will constantly try to beat your high score and you will pass your phone around seeing if anyone else can reach your new high score.

I’m sure you are thinking that it’s a horse game by the name, but it is actually an intense $2.99 war game. This game not only includes 3 Acts of different levels in single player but a breath taking multi-player experience. Multiplayer includes several unlockable guns and titles to shove in your enemies face.
