In the mood to create something? This week's selection of iPad apps will let you do just that, whether you're just getting the hang of walking or the one making sure we remember these moments forever, you'll be thankful to have the help.


KeepShot: There's no limit to the number of custom photo album websites available online, but with KeepShot, you can create your own, beautiful albums entirely on your iPad. It makes the creation process feel like a much more organic experience, as you'll be mimicking the way you'd put a a physical photo album together in real life. Import photos from essentially any of your preferred photo services, and you're already on your way to making memories. Free


Dexteria Jr.: Kids are going to grab for your iPad no matter what, so you might as well trick them into learning something while they're at it. Dexteria Jr. is an offshoot of its older, award-winning cousin Dexteria, and caters specifically to kids ages 2-5. Hand and finger exercises are camouflaged and bright colors and engaging songs, so kids will have blast while developing essential skills to carry with them later on. $3


HLP Flashlight: There's certainly no dearth of apps floating around with the sole purpose of turning your phone's LED bulb into a makeshift flashlight. So if you're someone to whom design is an afterthought (at best), you'll probably be perfectly content keeping what you already have. For the rest of you, though, HLP Flashlight for iOS is a simple, elegant take on a utility that's more or less become a necessity. And there are even a few fun kicks thrown in, to boot. Free
