Top 50 iPhone Apps for Moms
The Babble 50

About a week after I began using my iPhone, I was in love. I had a calendar with me at all times, and I was able to stay on top of my family’s schedule — even though there are six of us! I had email access while I was out, so I wasn’t constantly playing catch up with PTO business in the evening. And then I discovered apps! With these programs, I could...

*<<<<+ Means Christmas!
December 8, 2010

I like LRN the Lingo (.99), I think it does
what it says in a straight forward and easy
to use way.

What does the app do? It is a slang, text code, and emoticon dictionary of terms and keypad images in wide use by today’s youth. The interface is well designed and allows you to search/translate if you have code in front of you like <:-P, which means party tonight, to which you may want to respond to that teen — since it’s a Monday with; YBS — you’ll be sorry. I had been searching for one of these apps so when the developer offered me a code, I had to give it a try…

LRN the Lingo App for iPhone and iPod Touch
September 1, 2010

Icon

I’m the parent of three kids, one of whom has entered that tween stage and is beginning to confuse me with his terminology and language. He’s been asking (begging) me for a cell phone for the last six months, at least. So far, I’ve not given in, but it’s only a matter of time before the day comes when I break down. So I thought it might be in my best interest to take the opportunity to review the LRN the Lingo app for iPhone or iPod Touch. With kids going back to school, this may be the right time to consider getting it as well…

Having Trouble Understanding Your Kids’ Texts & Tweets?
LRNtheLingo May Be Able To Help

June 30, 2010

Icon

I like to think that I’m fairly “with it” and wouldn’t require such an app, but there were plenty of terms in LRNtheLingo that I had never heard before. My two girls (ages 3 and 8 mos.) are much too young to be texting for me to be concerned with what they are doing online (since well, they are not online). On the other hand, I could definitely see a practical use for this app, particularly for older people like my parents, who recently turned 60 and purchased iPhone 4s and may start texting more often...

Texting
A while ago I wrote about texting and acronyms as one of my favorite things and not for the actual texting itself but for the peace of mind it gives me when my boys leave and I get a text saying that they have arrived at their destination safely. Just a quick here from them and I am feeling so much more at ease...

LRNtheLingo | iPod & iPhone App | Review
July 18, 2010

I am lucky to have a leg up on this topic, because I am a gamer girl I needed to learn the lingo quick running a clan for 4 years. So there was very little my son could get away with. But even though I had some knowledge things are changing everyday and this app has so many slang terms and emoticons and text shortcuts so I learned a lot of new phrases and terms...

Our languages are changing everyday. A ton of acronyms and text lingo have made it to the English language, and there is no reason to believe people will stop here. While the pros and young kids have no trouble keeping up with these “foreign” words, there are many who just don’t know what all these 3 letter words and weird icons mean. That’s what LRNtheLingo is good for. It lets users find the definition for a specific word and understand those emoticons like a pro...

I think you will find this guest post about Facebook slang, by Emily Goll, very educational.
