Round up: Educational apps, high-tech seniors, car shopping app, more



Get your kids' brains in gear: Want to give your kids more learning opportunities than just in school? Check out these apps for them to play while they learn.  USA Today

Digital revolution for seniors: More and more seniors are embracing gadgets and online life. According to a Pew Internet & American Life Project study, half of those 65 and older are online, and 1 in 3 of them are active on social networks like Facebook. Seven in 10 own a cellphone. Denver Post

Lessons learned from Romney app: The app promised you'll "be the first to know" by using Mitt Romney's VP app, and, yes, the announcement of the selection did come first on the app, then sent to Twitter and email. But it wasn't the first to announce the news. NBC reported Paul Ryan as a pick hours before the "official" announcement was made. Forbes

Car shopping app: Ford now has an app for dealers to check inventory, show videos about cars, and even help car buyers to come up with configurations they would want to buy.  Computerworld
