Simple Transfer Pro
I often get asked during #pegeeks workshops for a quick and easy way to get photos and videos from the iPad/iPod to a computer form easy storage. While I’m a major user of cloud based storage solutions like Dropbox/Google Drive they can often be quite slow when transferring larger files.
With this in mind I absolutely love the Simple Transfer Pro app which easily lets you copy photos and videos between devices that share the same wireless network. This makes it possible to transfer large video files from your students iPad to your computer; or to another student or teachers device in seconds. An absolute must have.
Easy First Aid
Easy First Aid is exactly that; A super easy way to track and record First Aid incidents and injuries. This FREE app came to me after dealing with an injury during a practical PE session. With Easy First Aid you can quickly capture vital First Aid Information including time of incident, assessment, treatment and referral details. You can even attach Photo & Video evidence to support your Incident direct from your Camera roll or Dropbox Filter and Communicate First Aid Incident Reports via Email & Dropbox. Check it out in the video below;
Another powerful quantitative self app; designed to track your daily efforts to meet 30 minutes of Physical Activity. All you need to do is place your device in your pocket and get moving.Walk. Run. Dance. Bike. Everything counts. Human automatically picks up your walks, runs, bike rides and other exercise of one minute and longer.
The number of active gaming apps on the store is certainly growing. Motion Rugby is simple. Hordes of angry Enemy Rugby Players are coming to get you! Can you evade their tackles by actually weaving left and right to survive all 40 Levels and score Maximum Points? Lots of fun.

During 2013 I launched an exclusive membership section of The PE Geek Blog; which I’m proud to say has now grown to over 500 active members. The idea behind the membership section was to provide people with even more content than what I would normally post. The icing on the cake was to also provide access to two FREE apps a month, all my eBook downloads, exclusive access to my other products (Active Globe and Easy Planner) and discounted attendance at workshops and webinars around the globe.
All in all the members section has gone on to exceed my wildest expectations, and as a result I’m constantly motivated towards bringing new and exciting features to all. Take a look inside the members centre in the video below to see whats over 500 people currently get access to;

On a couple of occasions I have blogged about how Augmented Reality could be used to enhance instruction within the Physical Education & Health Classrooms. In 2010 the horizon report listed “Augmented Reality” as a technology to watch out for in education, with a 3 – 5 year rate of adoption to mainstream use. Augmented Reality is defined as the technology of combining the real world with computer generated information or imagery. Essentially this exciting technology makes it possible for you to use your mobile device to display information on whatever you’re pointing it at. Focus on a restaurant, and a display pops up giving a menu and customer reviews, look at a historic building, and you’re told when and by whom it was built. These are the sort of possibilities afforded by the new technology of augmented reality.
So with this in mind Im truly excited when applications arrive that utilise the best of Augmented Reality. The latest to do this is an iPhone/iPad, Android Application known as 4D Anatomy. Checkout this amazing app in the video below;
As Teachers we’re constantly responsible for groups of Students in all sorts of situations, this goes with the territory. However as we all know accidents can happen, and regardless of whether they’re minor or major accurate record keeping is essential.
So after refreshing my First Aid Qualifications in 2013, I began thinking about how the recording process could be vastly improved for the mobile age. Could a tool be made to that would always be with you? Could it include powerful reporting features? How about video and photo evidence? So with this in mind I set out to make it happen. Introducing Easy First Aid.
Easy First Aid is a powerful First Aid Record Keeping and Treatment Tool. A truly mobile and powerful way to capture and record incident details and subsequent treatment. Never again will you need to keep extensive and confusing paperwork. See how the app works in the video below;
