We have built mobile native app versions of the games, now in app stores. Strings, Clues, Collections, Buckets, and Rooms are all contained in a single mobile app, suitable for phone or tablet. The app also contains a game (Crime Scenes) not available in the web version.

Android, iOS, and Windows Phone are all available in their app stores, formatted for 1920x1080 but will work on other resolutions. They will also work on tablets.

Science 8 app

I spent a year volunteer tutoring middle school (grade 8) science students. While doing that, I created an app with a few simple demonstrations and practice tests to help them. The modules included were those that illustrated or helped practice the concepts my students had trouble either understanding or remembering. The test module contains every test the students took.

The app can be found in the Google, Amazon, iTunes, Chrome OS, and Windows app stores by searching for 'Science 8' or 'Ideate Games'.

BrassUp! app


This app helps learn and practice notes and fingerings or slide positions for brass instruments, including trumpet, euphonium/baritone, tuba (E-flat and BB-flat), French horn, and trombone. It has several modes including random notes, scales, exercises, and 12 keys for each instrument.

This app is NOT AN INSTRUMENT or a synthesizer, you cannot just 'play music' with it, although it has a 'free play' option that can be fun. There are many settings and options, be sure to explore them all.

Symple Journal -- to record symptoms or side-effects

I have to track over 20 symtoms to help my allergist monitor the drug effectiveness for my indeopathic (unknown cause) anaphylaxis. So I built this app. Then I was told others might want to use it, so I put it in the stores.

My goals were least amount of time entering the symptoms every day and simple graphs to show the allergist.

The app also allows you to email the 28-day graphs to yourself or caregiver, and allows you to upload them (and the raw data for the current month) to your Dropbox account if you have one.

The app does not keep data over 2 months old.

It plays you against the computer (easy to beat currently), but the other obvious variations are coming soon.

Mobile apps were built with Corona SDK
