Incredibly Useful and organized. Great App!
I decided to try the online version of Roger's Creative Whack Pack after getting a great deal of use out of the physical set of Creative Whack Pack cards. The App proved to be unbelievably well organized and totally up to date with the latest technology. I have used the Creative Whack Pack App to help guide my students at work through both problems in the classroom and problems in life. The kids have found that the guidance of the cards from the App help them to change their perspective on issues which enables them to solve problems that previously stumped them. I, personally, have found that the App forces me to take an unbiased approach toward my own problem solving because it leads me to think in ways that I may not otherwise be inclined to think. Overall, this product is a must have for pretty much anyone as it can be helpful in work/group settings as well as for personal needs.
Great app to stimulate your thinking
I've been using the Whack Pack series of products since 1998, when I had the physical deck, and have turned to it whenever I've been stuck. I'm glad the author found a way to digitize the cards, since I often forget to take the deck of cards with me while traveling. The app is a faithful adaptation of the deck of cards, and then some. I did not expect it to have workshops with notes and other features, like choosing a random card from a particular suit. I've been recommending it to everybody since I bought the app when it came out 3 years ago!
It Just Works . . .
When the 6.0 update came out for Creative Whack Pack, I found that my first gen IPad would not take the update, being that Apple stopped all support for the original IPads after only two years (not too creative). I feared that I would be stuck with the final 5.1 update of CWP. Not so . . . I contacted the developer of this great app and explained my dilemma and to my amazement found that update 6.1 would be introduced to correct this issue (now thats creative). Roger-thanks for the revised update. All I can say is this app works!
