    I would like to share the app that I found. It is called BallFallDown by FlatPack Interactive. It is an Entertainment App that allows users to take an empty iPad screen -"board"- and construct thier own interactive game. You can make all sorts of things including a pinball machines. Although probably built for kids, my husband and I have spent hours playing with this app after the kids of put up the iPad and went to bed. It is free in iTunes. You guys can check it out also. It is really fun and exciting!
