For those helicopter parents who hover about their kid in constant fear, the internet can be a scary place. Vaughn Simon has created a new app, TattleType, that allows parents to monitor what their kids are typing.
Basically a parent can set up a list of restricted words and then if their kids types those words, the parent is notified. The app can also quote a few words leading up to the restricted word and whatever the child typed afterward for the next 30 seconds. Is it a creepy app that violates your kid's privacy, or a powerful tool to help provide a level of safety to your family?
You can decide for yourself (if you're so inclined) by downloading TattleType for $4.99 on the App Store.

The new update for 505 Games' popular game, Terraria, can be (and is) described as massive.
They've added over 1,000 new items and block types. You'll be able to build bigger and better with all those blocks, but look out because with great blocks comes great enemies - over 100 new enemies and 4 new bosses to be specific. Oh dear. You might just have to recruit one of the 15 new pets or hang out with one of the eight new NPC's.
If all that wasn't enough, 505 Games also added new biomes as well as updates to old ones, new events, new music, bigger chests, and weather. Good heavens.
You can check out Terraria for $4.99 on the App Store.
