And So We Begin Re-Launches Angel’s Great Escape: A Christmas Story

No Comments

London, United Kingdom – Angel’s Great Escape: A Christmas Story was originally launched in 2012 and has been updated to include additional parental gateways for 2013.

Writer and founder of And So We Begin, Kirstie Rowson is excited about re-launching the app for the festive season, “We are keen for parents to be 100% comfortable with their little ones enjoying our apps and wanted to make sure that the parental gates that we have included are robust and non-intrusive. Christmas is all about that wonderful feeling we get from family and friends gathering around and the cosy familiarity of the Christmas classics and we really hope that Angel’s Great Escape will become part of that tradition with children enjoying Angel’s festive adventure year after year. We couldn’t be more proud that Alan Titchmarsh agreed to narrate the story, his warm tones really complete the Christmassy feel of the story. We are also really pleased to be able to add the Snow Globe to our list, it’s brilliant seeing little ones being creative with the Angel’s Great Escape characters.”

Angel’s Great Escape is an original tale written in rhyming verse, featuring beautiful illustrations by Kristyna Litten and accompanied by an original score written by Ginny Walker. The magical story is about Angel and her decoration friends, Fairy, Reindeer, Snowman and Teddy who have been left behind at the house of Mr Mean and his son. They know that they belong on the Christmas tree in the house of the Good family across the road. They need to escape! But can they make it?

Children can tap, drag and swipe to help the decorations as they clamber down the stairs, dive through the cat flap and wade through the deep snow to get to their dream home. All the while being pursued by the Mean family cat who is surprisingly good at throwing snowballs. An unexpected ally is waiting in the snow to help the decorations along the way and the reader can be part of the adventure. And look who’s waiting to greet them at the Good’s house, it’s Father Christmas who needs some help to put them all on to the tree!

And So We Begin worked with online agency, J & J ( and independent developer, Stefan Nowak of SN2apps ( to create Angel’s Great Escape using the Corona SDK framework ( They are also busy working on a traditional book version of the story to be released for Christmas 2014. Since the release of the app last Christmas, Kristyna Litten has gone on to publish her third picture book, Pigeon Pie Oh My! written by Deborah Singleton and published by Oxford University Press.

Ellen DeGeneres inspires delightfully disgusting Ugly Selfie Booth app

No Comments

Knoxville, Tennessee – Thousands of photo booth variations have cropped up in the App Store over the past couple of years, so why would another snap-beautify-share app warrant anyone’s attention? Because Ugly Selfie Booth doesn’t make pictures pretty. It makes people ugly. Complete with some nifty features and tons of gnarly “uglies,” Ugly Selfie is a sore sight for sore eyes.

Fancy your girlfriend with nose hair and a Mike Tyson tattoo? Done. Want to give your mother a monstrous makeover? Mix and match the piercings, warts, acne, femme ‘stache, and eighties makeup options. She may not think it’s funny, but you’ll be crying.

“We wondered if the term ‘selfie’ had gone mainstream yet, but after Ellen DeGeneres started talking about selfies on her show, we chose to stick with the name,” said Austin Church of Bright Newt. “She’s a talented comedian and does a lot of good for people, so an homage to Ellen seemed fitting.”

Uglify your face (or your arch nemesis) with this repulsive little app. Results may vary. Proceed with caution.

Take a new picture (or grab someone’s profile pic off Facebook), then turn yourself or your friend into an eye-melting troll. Once you’re finished, you can save your ugly selfies to your camera roll, email them, or share them with your friends on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram. The app looks and works great on iPhone, iPod, and iPad, thanks to an intuitive user interface, easy resizing & rotating for a realistic (or unrealistic) look, and, of course, a grotesque gallery of Frankenstein-worthy uglies. You can even have uglie selfies printed as postcards and mailed anywhere in the world.

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPod touch, iPad and iPad mini
* Requires iPhone OS 4.3 or later
* 46.6 MB

Pricing and Availability:
Anyone can be beautiful, but it takes real guts to make yourself ugly on purpose. Ugly Selfie Booth 1.0 is Free and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Photo & Video category. Download the app for free today.

Know Thyself Black Friday Weekend Specials – Life Inventory Apps

No Comments

Revere, Massachusetts – James Hollender’s amazing Life Inventory apps that help users learn more about themselves than they every thought possible, are reduced 30% during Black Friday Weekend. They guide users step by step in creating their own Life Inventory, which can provide greater self understanding of personality, strengths and weaknesses, leading to a better knowledge of self than they ever thought possible. Life Inventory guides the user through six activity groupings that allow any user, even someone not in a 12-Step program, to learn more about themselves than they ever thought possible and at only a small fraction the cost of a single visit to a therapist. Don’t miss out on the lowest price, which might never be offered again!

The Canadian Reviewer has suggested Life Inventory may even become your always available digital therapist: “If your smartphone has become your personal trainer, assistant, and even financial advisor, why not turn it into your therapist as well? Life Inventory app for iOS is here to help you understand what makes you tick. This app helps you create your own Life Inventory or Moral Inventory to provide you with better understanding of your personality, strengths, and weaknesses to help you live a better life.”

Both the iPad and iPhone/iPod touch versions accomplish exactly the same thing, only the interface is considerably different for each because of the significant differences in screen size.

The process of completing a Life Inventory does not directly address anyone’s specific problems, habits or addictions, but rather helps the user examine in detail events that have transpired in their life. The Life Inventory apps gently assists the user in probing into not only what happened, but also why it happened. The questions asked help the user delve into areas often never considered before, like:

* What did I want?
* Why did I want it?
* What am I not admitting?
* What lie did I tell myself?
* What did I leave out or not say?
* What lie did I tell others?
* Have I ever done the same thing?
* Was it any of my business?
* Were my expectations reasonable?
* What was the real truth?
* What was I not seeing?
* Did I fail to see the facts of the situation?
* What actions did I take to get what I wanted?
* What actions did I omit to get what I wanted?

Life Inventory guides the user through six different steps, each with its own activity grouping, for making a Life Inventory:

* Build Lists
* Causes and Effects
* My Part
* Fears Analysis
* Fear Questions
* Sex Relations

Throughout the process, users are encouraged to enter data into their Inventory, be completely honest about themselves and take advantage of encouragement and support from others.

The Inventory begins by making one simple list, which defines four fixed Categories in which to file away what are broadly categorized as Incidents:

* People
* Institutions and Organizations
* Principles, Ideals and Beliefs
* Sources of Anxiety and Excitement

Each of the four Categories will contain hierarchical sub-categories. From there, users outline Entities and then individual Incidents related each Entity.

Step-by-step, users complete the Causes and Effects of each Incident. Next, users determine the part they played in each Incident listed. It is not unusual to create hundreds of Incident forms, each devoted to a single incident. The app includes the ability to create and save all written lists and forms with password protection. Having completed all their Incident forms, users can refer to these forms to help list all their Fears. The app includes the following eight pre-defined fears, to which the user is free to add more if desired:

* Other people’s opinions
* Not getting what I want
* Not having control of the situation
* Financial insecurity
* Abandonment
* Physical harm
* Failure
* Success

The fifth step is examining each Fear category and answering the following key questions:

* Why did I have this fear?
* When did I first notice this fear in my life?
* How did I hold on to this fear?
* What did this fear make me do?
* What chain of circumstances did this fear set in motion in my life?
* How did I react to this fear?
* What decision did this fear cause me to make?
* How did self-reliance fail me?
* What should I have done instead?

And the sixth and final step is examining Sex Relations, where users answer all the following questions regarding each of their sexual relationships:

* How was I selfish?
* Where was I dishonest?
* Where was I inconsiderate?
* Who was hurt in this situation?
* Did I arouse jealousy, suspicion, or bitterness?
* Where was I at fault?
* What should I have done instead?
* What will I do in the future?
* Did I pray or have spiritual conversations with him/her?
* Did I pray for him/her?
* Did I enjoy his/her company?
* Did we bring each other closer to God?

“The process of completing a Life Inventory doesn’t directly address anyone’s specific problems, habits or addictions, but rather helps the user examine in detail events that have transpired in their life,” stated indie developer James Hollender. “The Life Inventory app gently assists the user in probing into not only what happened, but also why it happened.”

The Life Inventory for iPad app was rated as the 3rd Top iOS App for 2012: “Life Inventory for iPad: This iPad top iOs apps 2012 has the potential to let users create their very own Life Stock, which may present higher self-understanding of their character, strengths, and weaknesses. Life Stock is geared towards folks working by manner of a 12 step AA program and has quite quite a bit of spiritual connotations as faith and fellowship is the cornerstone of these kinds of programs. It assists customers in probing into not solely what happened, but in addition why it happened. Life Stock is certainly equivalent to moral inventory. Because the idea behind the app is advanced, new users might wrestle a bit with it. Life Stock is suitable with iPad and requires iOS 5.0 or later. This app costs USD 9.99. There may be additionally an iPhone version available.”

James Hollender is also the author of a suite of Nutrient apps based on the USDA National Nutrient Database:

* iCarbs (Carbohydrates)
* iCholesterol (Dietary Cholesterol)
* iFiber (Fiber)
* iKals (Calories)
* iPotassium (Potassium)

Device Requirements:
* “Life Inventory” – iPhone and iPod touch
* “Life Inventory for iPad” – iPad only
* Requires iOS 5.0 or later

Pricing and Availability:
Life Inventory and Life Inventory for iPad are each normally priced at $9.99 – 30% off Black Friday Weekend price is $6.99 (USD) and available worldwide exclusively through the iTunes App Store in the Lifestyle category. A Lite version of each app is $1.99, which supplement the main app by providing a mock Moral Inventory from which the user can learn by example and experimentation, but is limited as to the number of records created so it’s not sufficient to complete a full Life Inventory. Review copies are available on request.

Hides just offscreen as soon as any app opens, but unhides when mouse moved over tab. Lots of entry shortcuts, like “today”, “tomorrow”, “Wednesday” where it just does the right thing!
