The most important words will tend to be presented first because, well, they're important. Hawaiian Tutor will quickly zero in on the most important words for *you* to learn at each moment. It may seem too easy or too hard at first but just keep going and you will see that Hawaiian Tutor will quickly find the right balance that maximizes your learning regardless of your current knowledge, ability, and state of mind at the moment.
Note that it is important to make mistakes because no learning can happen without them. When you get words wrong, Hawaiian Tutor is also learning about you and what you most need to learn at every moment and will bring missed words back more frequently. That is a good thing because you want troublesome words to come back frequently enough for you to easily get them right. Therefore try not to feel disappointed when you get a word wrong. Instead, mentally pat yourself on the back because this is where the learning happens. Remember, this is not a test! It is a safe opportunity to take chances and improve your instant recognition of the words that will greatly improve your command of the Hawaiian language.
Hawaiian Tutor is best used during short periods while waiting for a bus, class, etc. It includes a very high quality vocabulary containing nearly 800 carefully chosen words in the Hawaiian language.
Good practice while you are out and about. Not a replacement for the full featured desktop version at http://superliminal.com/cube/cube.htm. Still it is interesting to know that Andrey Astrelin has already solved this puzzle on his Android phone including one-handed while riding the Moscow subway. How's that for dedication!

***IMPORTANT*** This is a widget and will not show up in your app drawer so please do not down-vote before following these instructions: After installing, you must place one or more instances on your home screen or other screen. On older Android devices, long-press the location where you want it, and then from the pop-up that appears, navigate to the bottom of the widget list and click on Wind Dummy. On newer devices, look under the "widget" tab at the top of your apps list.
Once placed on a screen, you can configure each widget separately to display data for any of over 17,000 weather stations in the Weather Underground network. To find your best stations, zoom into the global map here: http://www.wunderground.com/wundermap/then tap a WindDummy widget, enter the station ID, click OK and you should be good to go!

* Wealth: Net worth at time of retirement. Not added to after retirement.
* Interest: Per year (not including compounding), after inflation, paid continuously.
* Expenses: The fixed amount you draw out each month, paid continuously.
* Length: Years of retirement.
With this little app you can easily explore "what if" scenarios involving these variables.
The selected row is the variable the applet is solving for. By default the "Expenses" variable is selected. This means that you can see how much you can draw each month depending on the values you enter for the other three. For example, if you expect a 25 year retirement and expect to earn 5%, you can input those values and then adjust the "Wealth" slider to see how much money you will be able to live on each month depending on your net wealth at retirement.
You can select the "Wealth" row in order to see how much you'll need to save in order to retire with a particular desired monthly disbursement. You can solve for "Interest" to see what sort of interest rate you'll to meet your goals, and you can solve for "Length" to see how many years your savings will last given the other parameters. Play with the app for a while and you should get the idea of how to answer many other interesting "what if" scenarios.
You can even use the app for purposes other than just retirement. For instance, if you are an officer in a start-up or own a small business and are considering whether to take out a big loan or a round of venture capital funding, you can calculate how long of a runway it will provide, or how much you can spend each month with a runway of a given length.

LassieBot is very simple to use, and once properly set up you can largely forget about it, but you must read and understand ALL of the warnings and instructions below before LassieBot has a chance to function correctly in a real emergency.
There are many aspects to being safe while alone, and everyone should have back-up plans to cover as many contingencies as possible. LassieBot is meant to address only one of those cases, namely summoning help if you or a loved one are alone and unconscious. THERE ARE MANY WAYS IN WHICH LASSIEBOT COULD FAIL, AND I TAKE NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY FAILURES AND MAKE NO PROMISE OF ITS UTILITY FOR ANY PERSON OR ACTIVITY.
Here are some of the ways that LassieBot could fail:
* Your phone is turned off or the battery runs out.
* Your phone is charging. By design, LassieBot will not send alerts while connected to a charger.
* Your phone is in Airplane mode or is otherwise unable to connect.
* LassieBot is not turned on at the time of the emergency or is poorly configured.
* There is no cellular signal when LassieBot attempts to send out alerts.
* Alerts are sent but do not reach their destinations.
* Alerts reach their destination but your contacts do not notice them in time or take appropriate actions.
* LassieBot will not work in a moving vehicle.
* There may be bugs in the implementation.
Before using, you must configure and test it, and you need to fully understand what it does and how it works.
Step 1: Identify your emergency contacts. You do that by putting the 4 letters "ICE:" at the beginning of their names. ICE stands for "In Case of Emergency", and rescue workers know to look for such contacts when treating a lone unconscious person. Taking this simple action will go a long way to improving your safety while alone even if you never install LassieBot!
Talk with your potential emergency contacts BEFORE marking them as such as some people may not want that responsibility. Be sure to tell them to treat any alert as if it is a real emergency and that most alerts will be tests or false-positives, but all alerts should be assumed to be actual emergencies until they learn otherwise. I recommend using 2 emergency contacts.
Step 2: Select the amount of time with no motion that will trigger alerts. This should be longer than you ever go without handling your device.
Step 3: Click the big red button turning it green. At this point LassieBot is on the job and you can see that by the sticky notification in your notifications list, as well as from the tiny LassieBot icon in the very top-left corner.
Step 4: Configure and test. Clicking the check box brings up these controls. LassieBot will beep each time it gets a gyroscope event indicating that the timer has been reset. Adjust the sensitivity if needed so it always beeps when you pick it up but never when siting on a table.
Click the "Send Test Alert" button and make sure that all of your emergency contacts get the message. Warn them first that you will be doing this, and make sure they respond appropriately.
Finally, uncheck the check box to hide the configuration and test controls and stop the beeping.
LassieBot will not allow your phone to sleep, otherwise it cannot work so you will need to recharge more often. This is the price you pay for the added security. Turn LassieBot off when you know you don't need it or plan to leave your phone for a long time. Just don't forget to turn it back on later!
If LassieBot saves even one person's life, it will have been worth all my effort. I hope you will never need it, but if it does I hope that you will contact me and tell me your story.
