Layerizer has been re-designed completely. A new IOS 7 user interface, Facebook functionality and dozens of photo filters. As you maybe know, all photo apps of this kind in the App Store, are focused on changing / editing the pictures after you took them.

The app comes pre-loaded with over 340 words, sports graphics, holiday cards and more nice and funny “stickers”. Layerizer lets you put stickers like OMG, Cool, BFF, YOLO to the screen before you take a photo. You can enlarge, reduce, rotate, move the sticker to the spot on the screen you want, then point and shoot! The sticker will be on the photo you just took.

You can shoot Christmas cards, photos for your business with the company logo or banner on it, or just photos with all kinds of fun sayings, expressions or text messages on it. Take the photo, find it in the camera roll, and it’s ready to show to your friends by email, Facebook, Twitter or messaging. And if you want some extra editing tools, we added the special sdk powered by Aviary which gives you hundreds of editing options!

The app links to the Layerizer website where you can see samples of “Layerizered” pictures, learn tips and tricks on how to become a power user and download even more stickers to your iPhone from the download page which gets updated with new stickers every week.

Money Shots are fairways and greens hit, sand saves, and scrambles. As any Tour player would tell you, knowing what areas of your game to focus on is the key to improving performance.

Hip Hop Berserker – Now Free – Creator thanks fans, denounces App Store

No Comments

College Park, Maryland – FourTwoThree Studio today is proud to announce the release of Hip Hop Berserker 1.0.1 available for free for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch along with a monthly contest where top players can win free prizes. This innovative hybrid of rhythm and action games has appealed to both casual and hardcore gamers who have lauded the games’ superb soundtrack, gorgeous artwork, and addictive gameplay. AppAddict.net complimented the game calling it, “DDR for your thumbs.”

“I would personally like to thank everyone who played, tweeted, left great reviews, and told their friends about Hip Hop Berserker,” says E.A. Gray, creator of Hip Hop Berserker. “Hopefully, by going free, we will be able to get this unique game into the hands of the masses.”

Hip Hop Berserker offers a rich, unique blend of rhythm and action that has reached as high as being the #2 Music Game and one of the Top 100 Games (#85) in the App Store, despite not being featured by the App Store and receiving very little attention from the press. More alarming was the App Store’s decision to feature Sega’s Rhythm Thief & The Paris Caper, a competing rhythm game which is not only currently charting beneath Hip Hop Berserker on the iPhone, but has received lackluster reviews. A YouTube video thanking fans and denouncing the App Store’s policies is currently available on Hip Hop Berserker’s YouTube channel.

“Not being featured was a bit of a snub from the editors of the App Store, especially considering the fact that Hip Hop Berserker was initially charting better than games they chose to feature,” Gray continues. “It displays a lack of appreciation for Hip Hop and its audience, and even more egregious, it’s a smack in the face to independent developers. This won’t deter us from our goal of offering fans the best Hip Hop based video game experience on a mobile platform.”

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch
* iOS 6.1 or later
* 512 MB

Pricing and Availability:
Hip Hop Berserker 1.0.1 is available for free exclusively through the App Store in the Games category. Review copies are available upon request.

No Comments

Toronto, Canada – Zevrix Solutions today announces the release of Output Factory Server 1.0.8, a maintenance update to its solution to automate printing, exporting and post-processing from Adobe InDesign.

* Print and export InDesign files automatically from watched hot folders
* Support for print, PDF, PostScript, EPS, JPEG, Flash, EPUB and other formats
* Supports unlimited users on a network
* Export as single pages
* Layer versioning: output specific layers and their combinations as single files
* Variable output file names
