Posterino 3.2 now available on Mac App Store featuring new Mosaic-Crop

No Comments

Ulm, Germany – Posterino 3, Zykloid Software’s latest iteration of its popular custom collage app, is now available to download from the Mac App store. The latest version facilitates the creation of beautiful photo collages with a number of new features. Users can expect more flexibility, improved workflow and easy sharing. The results are expert collages produced by simple mouse clicks.

Version 3.2 now adds a new feature called “Mosaic-Crop”: Select a set of image frames and Drag & Drop an image on top of the section. The dropped image’s crop runs over all chosen frames.

Much has changed since Posterino 2.0, and those customers who provided feedback should be very pleased by the user-friendly updates. Adding, removing or creating image objects now instantly re-layouts the document for better workflow. Customization of those layouts is greatly enhanced by the addition of new frames, backgrounds and templates – including a unique circular option. New grid lines ease image placement for those who prefer to go the manual route. Improvements to the crop workflow allow for the creation of a persistent crop state.

Retina display owners will like that Posterino 3.0 is now compatible. A sleek interface and larger workspace adapts well to those working on MacBooks. One can edit in full screen mode, and quickly tailor images with built-in filters for black & white, sepia, sharpening and more. Lastly, once collages are complete, users can share on social media or send e-cards with individualized stamps and postmarks from within the app. Posterino 3.0 truly makes the world one’s gallery.

About Posterino:
Posterino is the ideal app for casual users and professional photographers alike who want to create beautiful photo collages from postcard to poster size. Collages are designed in minutes with Posterino’s variety of stylish templates featuring grids of identical or odd sized image boxes one can easily customize for size and shape. With a single click, the application automatically fills those boxes with random images drawn from selected albums in iPhoto, Aperture, Lightroom and other compatible programs. Or if users prefer to manually select images, they can simply drag and drop them into the template. Layout adjustments are automatically made. The result is a beautiful collage ready to be printed.

Tropical Software releases iAddressX 3.6 for OS X

No Comments

Atlantic Beach, Florida – Tropical Software today announced that after a 2-month public beta the iAddressX 3.6 full release is available. Use iAddressX to navigate contacts from a small icon in the system menu, and to initiate various tasks including printing of Dymo labels, dialing regular and Skype calls, sending SMS messages to Skype pals or friend’s cell phones, and more.

Menubar Convenience and iAddressX:
From the first release of Macintosh computers main menu bar, also called the system menu, has been a main Mac feature. iAddressX has now returned to the Mac system menu as a status item, allowing easy access to almost everything related to contacts from hierarchical menus.

Navigate Contacts:
* Navigate contacts from a small icon in the system menu and access many contact options

Dymo Support:
* Print to your Dymo Label printer right from iAddressX.

* Dial using Bluetooth, a USB Modem, Skype or an old-fashioned landline

* Search your contacts directly from the menu bar

* Initiate a call or chat using Skype

A Brief History of iAddressX:
Tropical Software President James Lee explains the return of iAddressX: “iAddressX was developed by Michael Balle-Pedersen, a Software Engineer at Apple Inc. Before he worked at Apple, Michael released versions running in Mac OS X 10.3 and 10.4. I discovered iAddressX languishing after Michael went to work for Apple and we were able to acquire iAddressX. We immediately developed a version that ran under Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) that is still available. Thanks to some help from friend and Apple software wizard John Daub, we are now able to get iAddressX working in Mac OS X 10.7 through 10.10. In-house expert Lewis Garrett inserted the Check for Update and Registration code, and put the final touches on this release.”

iAddressX 3.6.0 has the following changes:

New Features:
* Added an option to show Contacts by Group as a sub-menu, or in the main menu (it is recommend you enable Contacts by Group if you have many Groups)

Changed Features:
* Major rewrite of many parts of the code that was originally designed for OS X 10.5 Leopard and older
* This version now supports OS X 10.7 Lion and newer
* iAddressX was a Mac OS X Preference Pane. It is now an app installed as a status item in the menu bar

* Application @ menu icon almost invisible if dark menu and Dock is selected in MacOS General Settings

iAddressX- Reviews:
iAddressX was reviewed a few times many years ago and we hope it will once again get good reviews for its design and convenience. We are looking for feedback from prior iAddressX customers and new users for what they would like to see us develop in the future.

Pricing and Availability:
Try Tropical’s reliable iAddressX 3.6 for free today! For a short introductory period, iAddressX will be available for only $9.95 (USD) from the Tropical Software web site. After this introductory price, iAddressX 3.6 will be only $19.95 from the company’s web site.

Mimic: The Game for Apple Watch and iPhone is Fun and Addictive

No Comments

Cupertino, California – Thirty-seven years before the iPhone arrived, in 1978 a hand-held game called Simon was introduced, and within weeks of its release millions of people around the world – from young children to senior citizens – had fallen in love with the simple, hugely addictive gameplay: mimic a random pattern displayed by colored buttons.

Well, fast-forward nearly four decades, and MFX Studios has recaptured that spirit of addictive fun and modernized it for the mobile world with the new, no-cost release Mimic: The Game. Designed for Apple Watch and iPhone., Mimic: the Game is poised to join Angry Birds, Candy Crush Saga, and other glorious time-wasters that are super easy to play and impossibly hard to put down. Here’s how it’s played:

Users are presented with four colored buttons: yellow, green, purple, and reddish-orange. Next, the app plays a pattern that begins, simply enough, with one button. When users successfully mimic the pattern, another button is added. This cycle continues as long as users don’t make any mistakes along the way. However, if they do, the game is over and they must restart.

Furthermore, there are four interesting aspects that make Mimic: the Game even more enjoyable:
1. Every few rounds, the app rotates the position of the buttons (i.e. the yellow button will move from the top-left to the bottom-right, etc.).
2. Later rounds have time limits, so users don’t have the luxury of replaying long sequences in their heads – they need to swiftly decide or else!
3. Users earn points along the way, which they can exchange for an extra life, or use to stop rotations between rounds.
4. Users can compete with friends and other players worldwide via the Leaderboard.

In addition to being fun – which is no small accomplishment given the abundance of boring games in the App Store – users will find that Mimic: the Game can boost concentration, coordination and memory; all of which can help them in other aspects of their life.

“Our goal with Mimic: The Game was to put a cool new spin on a classic favorite,” commented a spokesperson from MFX Studios. “It really is a simple and fun game that challenges memory skills – but watch out: users should be ready for twists and turns at any moment!”

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
* Optimized for iPhone 5, iPhone 6/6 Plus
* Requires iOS 8.2 or later
* 14.1 MB

Pricing and Availability:
Mimic: The Game 1.0.0 is Free and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Games category.

It all began with two college students, now graduates of Prairie View A &M University, and the simple goal of creating the best eye catching websites they possibly could. The company’s slogan “Creative meets Innovation” sums up the often outside of the box creative design concepts. With their focus on quality and not quantity, they would go on to make a series of business cards, flyers, websites, and even billboards for business and campus organizations at Prairie View A&M University. Over the years the focus would shift from from web to mobile and on December 15, 2009 MFX Studios crossed the barrier of web development when it released its first iPhone application. Since then MFX Studios has gone on to create several apps and open source frameworks for iPhone developers.

Scale-up FileMaker WebDirect Web Applications using FmPro Migrator 7.47

No Comments

Fremont, California – .com Solutions Inc. has released FmPro Migrator Platinum Edition 7.47 with 30 improvements making transitioning from FileMaker Pro to a PHP web application practical and affordable. In addition to supporting FileMaker Pro, PHP web applications can also be built from Microsoft Access and Visual FoxPro databases applications.

Benefits to performing a PHP Conversion with FmPro Migrator Platinum Edition Include:
* Scale-up beyond 100 concurrent users – FileMaker WebDirect provides tremendously rich desktop-like functionality in a web application. But that functionality comes with a performance impact to the single database server supporting the application. The PHP web application generated by FmPro Migrator improves performance by having its functionality implemented within the user’s web browser, the web server and the database server. Performance can be further improved by adding more web and database servers, to scale up way beyond a WebDirect configuration.

* Own your application source code – Having the source code to your app means that you can move your application to the hosting provider of your choice at any time. Need to customize the look of the app? You can do this too. There is no lock-in when you own the source to your web application, any feature or graphical element can be changed or enhanced. Host the web application on in-house servers for data security reasons or use the cloud hosting provider of your choice.

* Avoid monthly/annual billing – Some systems lock you in to a single vendor, where the application will stop running if you can’t afford to pay. When you own the application, you only pay for economical web hosting. And even the hosting cost can be eliminated by installing the web application and database on your own servers.

* Reuse existing business logic – You can utilize existing business logic refined over many years by performing an automated conversion project. There is no need to waste thousands of dollars documenting and re-implementing functionality which already works. Your existing database serves as the software specification for your project.

* Keep the existing GUI – Reduce re-training costs by using the same familiar graphical interface in the web application. The GUI represents an important part of the overall application functionality just like the underlying business logic.

* Cross platform/device compatibility – A web application requires no configuration on local computers. The generated web application works with any modern web browser, running on any computer platform or mobile device.

* 30 Day Money Back Guarantee – Buy FmPro Migrator Platinum Edition software with confidence. We would like the opportunity to help you achieve success with your project, but if it just doesn’t work out, a no-hassle refund will be provided.

Changes with this release include:
* Fixed a memory leak during batch importing of layouts, which could cause a crash.
* Fixed an issue reading the correct number of fields with the Demo version when performing Access to FileMaker conversions.
* Updated LiveCode template stack to v48. Added support for SQL Yoga 1.1.1 dbconn_setVendor feature for SQLite connections, adding “binary,extensions” options. This change means that SQLite BLOB column data will be readable with 3rd party SQLite tools.
* Fixed a cosmetic issue with the display of the main window tabbed folder on MacOS X Yosemite.
* Fixed a cosmetic issue with the display of the Field Details button on the Migration Process window in Table Consolidation operating mode.
* Fixed a cosmeetic issue with the display of Unicode characters in the display of Custom Functions, TOs in the Migration Process window.
* Fixed an issue updating Layout TO names containing Unicode on the Layouts tab in the Migration Process window.
* Fixed an issue in which some CREATE TABLE long column names would get terminated with the @ symbol.
* Improved the error message when connecting to MySQL database servers.
* Improved the error message displayed when copying tables into FmPro Migrator via the clipboard, to suggest extracting the app from the ZIP/DMG file prior to running the app.
— PHP Conversion Changes
* Fixed an issue with escaped quotes in FileMaker calculations causing a syntax error in the generated PHP code written into CakePHP Model files.
* Fixed the incorrect display of Spry Tabbed Panels, and background color of Spry tabbed panels from FileMaker 13 database layouts.
* Improved compatibility with newer PHP versions by adding app/Model/DataSource/CakeSession.php file, with ‘session.auto_start’ => 0, line of code commented.
* Enabled the use of the Add and Delete buttons on the navigation toolbar in Find mode for applications created using the “Read Only” data access feature. This change allows users of Read Only applications to Add and Delete their own find requests.
* Added the conversion of FileMaker global variables into PHP SESSION variables for the Set Variable, IF and ELSEIF script steps.
* Added the automated commenting of beforeSave()/afterSave() functions within Model files when creating a PHP web application having Read Only Data Access.
* Improved the code in the ToolbarsController.php file to reduce memory usage for large data sets, largely eliminating out of memory errors with MySQL queries.
* Fixed an issue with the display of Query operators using UTF8 unicode.
* Fixed issues with User login code.
* Removed support for CakePHP 1.x from the PHP Conversino GUI menu.
* Fixed a display issue with Spry Tabbed Panels with only one Panel on the form.
* Fixed an issue with Custom Value List items containing Unicode characters not displaying properly.
Note: It is recommended that ASCII characters be used for Value List names, since these get used to construct function names.
* Fixed an issue with FileMaker 13/14 Tab Panel names and font color not being retrieved.
* Improved Spry TabbedPanel processing by enabling the background color of the Tab to be different from the background color of the panel containing the objects.
* Improved the PHP Conversion “Missing PK Column” error dialog to suggest copying the tables into FmPro Migrator again, after making changes in the source database.

Pricing and Availability:
FmPro Migrator Platinum Edition is priced at ($600) per developer, you can build an unlimited number of web applications having up to 250 forms/reports/layouts with FmPro Migrator during the term of the license key.
