    "I would never win an award for not loving pizza" so says actor - former wrestler Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. We don't do awards here, but we love pizza too. We love it so much that we've created a "new" game for it.  Pizza Burger Crush for Android is our match-3 game introduced on a lark in October, 2015. Read more about Pizza Burger Crush. The app was so well received that it was always in the back of our minds to do a version for iPhone and iPad. Follow the story of how it all came together within the closing weeks of the 2nd quarter of 2019. These demos were all fully functioning iPhone versions of the app (but never released). This first version (with one game level) worked well enough with lots of cool digital effects. We felt the game play wasn't quite fast enough so it was shelved. Demo Version 1: For Version 2 (with multiple game levels) we also included lots of sparkling special effects but after lots of evaluation we decided it just didn't cut it! Demo version 2: We killed the cupcakes, went back to the original demo version, added mustard with ketchup, made multiple changes, tested it on different iPhones and iPads, and decided that version 3 was just right: The final version above has several game levels with varying degrees of difficulty. We enjoyed working on this iPhone and iPad version. We slowed the pace down from the Android version which is fast paced and wild. The iOS versions have no time limit so you can play forever as long as you keep winning. This allows you to use strategy to maximize the score across the game levels. Long live pizza, burgers, chicken, hot dogs, and fries with special thanks to our artist Julia Liberali who drew the food items for the version 2 Android upgrade using watercolors! (She didn't draw ketchup/mustard). Release date in the App Store for Pizza Burger Match-3 for iPhone and iPad will be Monday, June 24, 2019. Watch the game video with both the iPhone/iPad/Android versions for a public service laugh below!

    In the 20th Century when the United States declared war against Germany, Dr. Louis T. Wright (shown above) enlisted in the US Army. In 1918, he was on the front lines in St. Die, France. Dr. Wright, (1891-1952), excelled in the field of medicine and brain trauma. He is the author of nearly 20 academic papers about brain surgery. He graduated from Clark University in Atlanta in 1911. Dr. Wright graduated from Harvard Medical School in 1915. For Love of Liberty: The Story of America's Black Patriots features an excellent profile of Dr. Wright, along with 28 other significant African Americans who served their country in the armed forces. You'll also find profiles about specific marine regiments, infantry divisions, airborne divisions, and calvary divisions. Discover more about America' Black Patriots in the iPhone/Android App: Black History Audio Book III. Within the Android version of the app you can watch the videos featuring all 9 chapters of the America's Black Patriots story.

    He was the only African American child enrolled in a Quaker school near Baltimore, Maryland. In 1753, he built the first clock in the American colonies hand-carved from wood that even chimed the hour. By 1793 he published almanacs with astronomical information about tides, sunrise and sunset, and phases of the moon.   This inventor may be most famous as one of the surveyors for Washington, DC.

    In the world of music, once every decade or so the past catches up to the present. That's why many of the best old songs are updated by contemporary artists about once every 10 years. Before our exciting career in software app development, we were responsible for programming, playing, and announcing music at a long list of very successful radio stations and broadcast networks. With our world of song knowledge along with shared stories in conversation with popular recording artists we created the mobile game trivia app R&B Music Quiz Soul for Android in November, 2015.  R&B Music Quiz Soul for iPhone has just been completed. Hundreds of tasty trivia teasers are included in this treasure trove of fun with the focus on Rhythm and Blues. Whereas the Android version of the app concentrates on hundreds of multiple choice questions, the iPhone version adds a picture quiz, right or wrong quiz (true or false), and also includes a collection of multiple choice trivia. The artists mentioned in the app span seven decades from the 1950's to the 2000's. Can you guess who had the most top 10 hits? How about who spent the most weeks at #1 on the music charts? R&B Music Quiz Soul was created for the casual music fan. You don't have to be an expert to enjoy the app. The hit quiz questions just keep on comin' bringing back magical memories. We are lucky to have a certified in-house music expert who can share this cultural appreciation with you. Under our umbrella we have a separate website devoted to the world of music. It's now offline and is being revised for a re-launch late in 2019. Stay tuned! For now, enjoy R&B Music Quiz Soul for Android. The iPhone version will be released within the next 14 days or sooner. Update (March 23, 2019): R&B Music Quiz Soul for iPhone is released on the App Store.

    Pizza Burger Crush is a fun pizza game app. Match the burgers, fries, hot dogs, chicken and pizzas with just a touch. This easy pizza game has been one of our Android download favorites, so we are building an iPhone and iPad version that is close to completion. The iPhone - iPad version won't be a match game, so it is significantly different, but it is just as much fun. Both games will look similar. As a public service, both of these pizza games provide a calorie free digital escape into the world of fun food! Warning: Pizza Burger Crush Game app encourages playing with your digital food.

    We recently received a comment about our original Black History Quiz. "Limited questions" was the entire statement. Fictional British detective Sherlock Holmes would have fun with this one. Did the person mean not enough questions, or that the questions were limited in scope? We have moved the needle forward with each of our new African American quiz mobile apps. Black History Quiz for iPhone (2nd to market) not only increased the number of multiple choice questions, but added a true or false section, plus a photo quiz. The new flagship Black History Express app for Android added brand new quiz questions not used in Black History Quiz. Black History Express also includes a complete biography knowledge reference section. We created all of the Black History Express quiz questions using the biography reference section. Try all of these free apps. Here are the app store links: Black History quiz for iPhone or Black History Quiz for Android, and Black History Express for Android.

    Superhero Flyer app is not an easy mobile action game to master. Playing looks simple enough, but looks can be deceiving. Watch this video then discover how we developed this game from the drawing board to Google Play in 18 months. We started with 5 original characters: Scout who is the most vulnerable,  Blue who can't survive the large rockets, Trax who has a short life span, and Bambi with Thump. These two ladies just kick butt. You touch the screen to keep each superhero flying. An unpredictable factor is built into the game. Blue, and Trax have limited life spans that are random. These characters are upgrades from Scout (the character with the 5 lives at the top left of the screen when the game starts). When Blue is defeated by a rocket, Scout can continue the game. Here is the help screen that you can get to from the game home screen. There are a lot of power-ups. Power-ups include the sun, moon, windsocks, drones, and balloons. Our bird heroes, the eagles, make the game much more of a challenge in several levels. The eagles use their hunting skills to target, attack, and destroy the drones. Once you get the hang of playing the game, you'll have the most fun soaring along in the highest levels.  Jump on the leaderboard to track how many points you have scored compared to other players. Most of all, enjoy playing Superhero Flyer. Learn about the international team who assisted in the development Superhero Flyer.
