#1 Handmarks Fireworks

Virtual firework apps are an endless favorite. Handmarks Fireworks lets you set off dozens of rockets at once by touching the screen where you want them to explode. The explosive devices blow up fountain-style in a variety of colors.

    My wife’s folks have rented a house at the Cape for 4th of July weekend, and before joining them I’ll scan two boxes of photos filched from my MIL. This with iPad and Pic Scanner app (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/pic-scanner/id644278663), which I tested with a small lot. It worked great; best part being fully automatic cropping and the speed (Scans up to 4 photos together, although I will do one or two at a time). The app lacks the ability to directly burn scanned photos to DVD, but it’s easily done by saving to Mac and then using iDVD. Looking forward to surprising everyone with it, and getting enough TBT material in the process!
