Have kids or grandkids who adore The Cat in the Hat, Green Eggs and Ham or How The Grinch Stole Christmas? Apple's App Store now has more than 45 different Dr. Seuss books, games and other apps available.

A new app, Lost Kidz, might be considered a high-tech version of an AMBER Alert.
Here's how it works: If a child is lost or missing, parents or caregivers can immediately send an alert through the Lost Kidz app using the profile they've already set up in advance. Free but required, this profile includes a photo of the child along with information such as gender, height, weight, eye and hair colour.
As major fans of Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives — the popular Food Network show starring chef Guy Fieri — my wife and I recently set out to find a restaurant profiled in Las Vegas.

Everyone has a life story to tell—especially aging parents, grandparents or other relatives and friends you're fond of—and a new app lets you capture, preserve and enjoy these tales to ensure they're archived forever.

What's a five-letter word for "must-have iPad app for those who love watching online video"?
The answer is Vodio, a simple-to-use yet powerful aggregator of personalized video content.
When you first launch Vodio, you'll see a carousel of video content that you can flick left and right with your fingertip. Each column contains videos based on a particular theme, such as music, comedy, news, tech, and so on.
If you spend a lot of time with Guy Fieri, Rachael Ray and Bobby Flay on the boob tube, why not take these chefs into your kitchen via your iPad?
