Bad Driver Database Allows Good Drivers to Voice their Frustration

No Comments

Cupertino, California – Guys who park their souped-up monster truck in two – sometimes three – parking spaces. Ladies who believe that their rear-view mirror is more useful for applying mascara than seeing what or who’s behind them. Oblivious drivers that go 10 miles under the speed limit with cars stacking up behind them. And lest we forget: folks who might as well uninstall turn signals because they don’t know how to use them. These are just a few examples of the many, many drivers out there whose days of carelessness, recklessness and sheer stupidity behind the wheel are numbered, thanks to the ingenious new iPhone an Android app Bad Driver Database by Facile Group.

Here’s how Bad Driver Database works: rather than getting enraged or possibly putting themselves in harm’s way, users who spot a bad driver simply input that bad driver’s state and license plate number into the app. Absolutely no personal information is captured or transmitted (either the user’s or the bad driver’s), ensuring bad driver’s can be reported without sharing sensitive data. Driver’s should ensure they access Bad Driver Database safely when their vehicle is parked, or alternatively a passenger can enter details on-the-move.

Instantly, users see how many times that particular bad driver has been flagged by other users – which is a good way to see if the mistake is just a one-off, or the act of a habitually terrible driver. And even more importantly, users help the community of safe, sane and considerate drivers hold bad driver’s accountable for their inconsiderate, or at worst dangerous, decision-making behind the wheel.

Plus, users can search their own license plate to see if they’ve been added to the database, which can help them see if it’s time for a little – or perhaps a lot – of road re-education.

“We created the Bad Driver Database to give all of the good drivers out there a powerful way to voice their frustration with bad drivers, but in a way that avoids road rage incidents,” commented Mitch Jansen. “Even good drivers can sometimes make mistakes, the app also helps them see how many times they were caught making bad driving decisions.”

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
* Requires iOS 6.0 or later
* 6.9 MB

Pricing and Availability:
Bad Driver Database 1.4, the ingenious new app from Facile Group, is Free and available worldwide through the App Store in the Reference category. There is also a version for Android-enabled smartphones on Google Play.

iPad Air Counter-Top and Wall Mounts With Apple Store Look

No Comments

San Diego, California – newMacgadgets has released their new Apple Store Displays for the iPad Air. Available in two models; a secure and non-secure (for home use) counter-top model, which replicates the Apple store acrylic display, and a stylish wall mount frame. Both are designed in clear acrylic to enhance the look and feel of the new iPad Air.

Counter-Top Model:
Designed for places where security is a concern, the all acrylic tapered counter-top display combines security with the elegance of the Apple store. Newly designed miniature stainless steel brackets secure the iPad Air within the pocket allowing for better security and a cleaner look. They have also included a home-button guard bracket for applications that require continuous running. Our iPad Air Mount secures to any counter-top with either clear adhesive strips or screws (both included).

Full-access is available to the touch screen, on/off switch and charging port. The charging cable secures underneath the base and routes out the back for a professional look. We also offer a non-secure version of this Base for home use.

Wall Mount Model:
newMacgadgets iPad Air Wall Mount model is similar in design to their acrylic Counter-Top Mount but without the taper. The iPad Air is secured with the same stainless steel brackets and also includes an optional home-button guard bracket for continuous running applications.

When secured to the wall the iPad Air conceals the mounting screws to prevent removal (mounting hardware is included). Depending on the user’s preference, the mounting frame can be positioned in either the landscape or portrait position.

When mounted to the wall full-access is available to the touch screen, on/off switch and charging port. The charging cable secures behind the base for a clean look. Visit newMacgadgets today for additional information on their latest iPad Air products.

Wonster Words Spelling with Phonics App releases today

No Comments

Sunnyvale, California – 77SPARX Studio, maker of the award winning Puzzingo Kids Puzzles game, has launched Wonster Words Spelling with Phonics for iOS and Android. Unlike the numerous ABC apps targeting young kids, Wonster Words focuses on kids who already know their alphabets, and are starting to learn to recognize and sound-out words that they encounter.

Wonster Words helps kids build phonological awareness by introducing the 44 most common English phonemes, basic word families, common diphthongs, and digraphs. The app starts with short letter mini games where kids can put together words using its parts. Once the words are completed, the lovable wonsters will come on screen and perform funny skits that illustrate the meaning of the words, much like the way the Sesame Street puppets do on TV.

“One pervasive problem Wonster Words address is that, while these academic topics are typically taught to 5 year olds, most apps targeting these skills have game plays that don’t engage 5 year olds,” said Andrew Kao, Co-founder, 77SPARX Studio. “In Wonster Words, we have spent considerable time tuning both the game play and the animations to ensure that they are entertaining and fun for kids aged from 2 to 6.”

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
* Requires iOS 6.0 or later
* 19.8 MB

Pricing and Availability:
Wonster Words Spelling with Phonics 1.68 is Free to download, with option to purchase additional content or subscription from within the app, and available worldwide through the App Store in the Education category. Wonster Words is also available on the Google Play, and Amazon market. For more information about the company and its philosophies, please visit 77SPARX Studio online.
