No Comments

Oberhausen, Germany – Newtronium, a German game development studio, today is proud to announce the release and immediate availability of SkillShot 1.3, its new, fast-paced arcade game free to download from the App Store, Google Play and the Amazon App Store. SkillShot is an easy to pick up, hard to master arcade game. It comes with achievements/leaderboards integration for the respective platforms. The gameplay is fast, skill-based and unforgiving, with games lasting from a couple of seconds to a few minutes, depending on skill level and experience. SkillShot’s graphic design is simple and crisp featuring smooth animations and fully mirrorable gameplay for an optimal gaming experience.

In SkillShot, players engage in a squash-like single-player experience by trying to hit the ball against the wall as many times as possible, without hitting the floor twice in a row or going out of bounds. Every shot can be aimed by tapping inside the designated tap area while the ball is within making it fly away from the tap, giving the player precise control over its trajectory. Difficulty increases in steps of 10 points, as the wall the ball has to hit changes shape, position and angle.

* iOS 6.0 or later
* 43 MB

Device Requirements Android (Google Play/Amazon Appstore)

New Revolutionary Music App, TurnTable, Reinvents the Music Player

No Comments

New York, New York – Andrew Kaz, veteran in the Apple software scene, today is proud to announce the release of TurnTable 1.0 for iOS, his new app that serves to re-invent the Music Player. TurnTable is the Music Player reinvented, reimagined around the Album. Scroll through a quilt of Albums, flick through full-screen Records, and scroll through charts of Artists (and their discographies). Tap an Album, and: It’s just like an album, the track titles “printed” right on full-screen album art. It’s like an analog music collection, but made more accessible than ever, the best of both worlds. TurnTable aims to be the new Graphical Interface for music.

“I feel that this holds significance like the iPod. It’s not a new device, but this is software that may prove as important, since it offers a human interface for music. Apple’s app is sterile. TurnTable can change the way people play their music & will interact with their devices in the future to play music, daily.

“I believe that it represents where music software will move.”

“Especially now with Apple Music, the music experience is going to be a lot more important. Apple adopted my other app, Classics/iBooks, I wouldn’t be surprised if they ‘took note’ of this, with their new venture into music.”

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
* Requires iOS 7.0 or later
* 0.9 MB

Pricing and Availability:
TurnTable (v1.0) is offered at the special introductory price of $2.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Music category. Please visit the TurnTable website to see the graphical user interface in action. If you are interested in a copy of the app for evaluation or review purposes, please reply to this from your work email, and by all means, let us know if you write about our stuff.

Andrew Kaz is a longtime independent developer, having been on the Apple platform for over a decade, passionate about human interface before the iPhone was introduced. He played a role in bestselling, award-winning Mac app Delicious Library in 2003, at the age of 13. Before that, he was selling software from a young age. At the age of only 13, a sole programmed effort sold 50/copies per day and made $5,000 in the first month – long before the App Store existed, and before Apple dominated the market, when their market share was dead. In 2008, at the age of 18, he released Classics with partner Phill Ryu. Classics rose to top of the iPhone charts, was featured in Apple’s TV ad, and in 2009 adopted in the form of their new core app, iBooks, like Classics.

wobinich – Share Location Coordinates in a Platform Independent Message

No Comments

Feldkirchen, Bayern, Germany – Simian Productions announced today the immediate availability of wobinich in the Apple App Store. Mapping software on smartphones has dramatically changed how we view our world. Finding and routing to an address is as simple as a couple of clicks. However, sharing a location with a recipient who doesn’t have a smartphone is challenging. Apple Maps sends a user’s location as a VCARD that contains an embedded URL that either opens Apple Maps to display the user’s location or allows the recipient to save the sender’s location as an Address Book contact.

In sharing a user’s location, there are two scenarios where smartphone-based Apps are limited:

* The sender would like to let someone know where they are, but the recipient does not own a smartphone (or the sender does not know what kind of mobile phone the recipient has)
* The sender’s current location cannot be described in terms of a normal, street address – “I am currently on the I-15 somewhere between Victorville and Barstow…”

wobinich (“whereami” in English) directly addresses these issues. Using Apple’s iOS Location Services, wobinich allows the user to send his location coordinates to a recipient via a platform independent, SMS message (as long as the sender has at least a GSM connection, he can send an SMS).

If a data connection is available, the user can choose from any of the other messaging services he has configured on his iOS device: Mail, Twitter, Facebook, WhatsApp, etc.

The recipient is sent the sender’s coordinates in four formats:
* Latititude and Longitude – for input into a GPS device
* Apple Maps URL – clicking on the link will open Apple Maps (iOS or Mac OS X)
* Google Maps URL – clicking on the link will open Google Maps (if available on the recipient’s device)
* Street Address – if a data connection is available and the user’s location can be deciphered

The sender can also personalize the message before sending it.

With just a couple of clicks wobinich allows the sender to share his location in a platform independent message. As long as the recipient has a GSM telephone, he can receive and then enter the sender’s coordinates into a GPS device.

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
* Optimized for iPhone 5, iPhone 6/6 Plus
* Requires iOS 8.4 or later
* 2.5 MB

Pricing and Availability:
wobinich 1.03 is only $0.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Navigation category.

bluespots – Free: A Social Discovery App to bring people together

No Comments

Bangalore, India – Brainstorm today is pleased to announce the release and immediate availability of bluespots 3.1, an update to their popular social networking app developed for iPhone devices. Providing real-time location updates, including distance and direction, bluespots allows users to discover their friends around them. If a user’s friends are using the bluespots application they will be able to discover friends and their friends will discover them.

Connect With People at Your Favorite Hotspots:
There are so many different social interaction and communication apps it’s difficult to keep track of them all. Whether you’re looking for a dating app, a simple messaging app, or a full blown social meeting place there are bound to be dozens of apps available and they’re generally free. That makes it hard to decide what the best ones are, and making the right choice generally comes down to a little good old fashioned trial and error. In this context bluespots – Free is a must have app.

The Essentials:
Before you can get started using this app, you’ll have to enter your 10 digit phone number, which is used as a tool to connect you with other app users that are nearby. The app also uses Bluetooth technology to find people in the area so you’ll need to make sure it’s turned on as well, before you attempt to use the app. Once you’ve done both of these things, you’ll be asked to allow the app to access your contacts so that it can match you with any of your contacts that already use the app. The rest is up to you. Bluespots – Free will also allow you to connect with any other users that you haven’t met that are close by – as long as they’ve made themselves visible.

This is a very simple app to use. The main body of the app is a news feed that will show you any nearby users that have made themselves visible, as well as your existing friends that are in the area. It includes their basic information such as a snapshot, their phone number, how far they are from you, and what direction they’re traveling towards. It also allows you to connect with them via text message, phone call, or WhatsApp. You can poke your nearby friends. It does work well if you’re hoping to run into friends that you might not have known were at the same club – as long as they’re using the app too.

If you’re looking for a simple social media connection tool to help you hook up with people while you’re out and about then Bluespots – Free is a must have option. This app uses Bluetooth and Geo location to discover and connect you with other users that are nearby. It doesn’t require clear skies, and even works inside buildings. It doesn’t require any Bluetooth pairing or configuration. Users just need to keep their device’s Bluetooth and location services on. Since it is based on Low Energy, it is optimized for power consumption and will not drain the device’s battery. bluespots can discover and notify users even if it is running in background.

“Ever wondered when you are in a busy place like shopping mall, market, restaurant, club, bar or a pub and wanted to know who is around or wanted to discover your friends nearby. bluespots is an answer to this,” explained Dushyant Gaur, founder of Brainstorm

iBeacon-Enable Your Next Meeting with Bleu Meetings and a Free Beacon

No Comments

Naperville, Illinois – Twocanoes Labs is changing how people attend meetings with its iBeacon-enabled Bleu Meetings conference service. Using an online service and their own line of iBeacon hardware called Bleu Station beacons, attendees use their smartphones for meeting check-in and information. Gone are the days when meeting attendees print out check-in information, directions, and an agenda to take to the meeting.

With Bleu Meetings, attendees tap a link to install a Passbook pass directly onto their smartphone (both iPhone and Android are supported). The attendees automatically receive updates right on the pass and are immediately notified of the changes. The Bleu Meetings conference service includes a free Bleu Station Beacon to enable the attendees’ pass to appear on the lock screen when they arrive at the venue, and directs attendees to the correct meeting room. The organizer uses the Bleu Meetings conference service to update the passes already installed on attendees’ smartphone, and to send notifications directly to the attendees lock screen for timely updates.

For an attendee of a meeting, getting meeting information is simple and modern. After registering for a meeting, a link in the confirmation email is received by the attendee. When the attendee taps the link from the invitation email, a meeting pass is installed from the Bleu Meetings conference service. The front of the pass contains all the critical meeting information, such as name, time, and location. The back of the pass may contain detailed information on the meeting, such as an agenda, list of speakers, or feedback links.

Once the attendee arrives the meeting and is near the beacon, the pass shows on their lock screen for easy reference and check-in via a barcode on the front of the pass (required for larger meetings). Once at the meeting, the attendees receive meeting notifications on their lock screen. The front and the back of the pass are updated with news and information throughout the day by the organizer.

For the organizer, Bleu Meetings makes it simple to keep participants up-to-date with meeting information. The organizer uses the Bleu Meetings service to create a customized pass that contains all the important information about the meeting. Each pass has a unique barcode for each attendee for quick and easy check in. The organizer updates existing passes installed on attendee phones by changing the pass information in the Bleu Meetings conference service. The changes are then automatically sent to all attendees. The organizer sends messages directly to the attendees lock screen for urgent updates.

The organizer can easily deploy Bleu Station beacons with the free Bleu Meetings iOS app (available on the App Store). The organizer plugs in the AC-powered beacon near the front of the venue, and the Bleu Meetings iOS app configures the beacon based on the meeting information in the Bleu Meetings conference service. The setup doesn’t require any technical knowledge to set up the beacon, and the organizer is assured that the beacon is sending out the correct information and.

The Bleu Meetings conference service has a free 30 day trial and comes with a free beacon that uses Apple’s iBeacon technology. After the first month, the service costs $4.99 per month. The free beacon also works with many of the free proximity apps from Twocanoes Labs. The Bleu Meetings conference service can be cancelled at any time.

Sage Solitaire – New iOS Game from SpellTower / Ridiculous Fishing dev

No Comments

New York, New York – Today, independent developer Zach Gage, creator of the hit game SpellTower, and co-developer of the Apple Design Award winner Ridiculous Fishing, released Sage Solitaire, a brand new solitaire variant that combines the luck and joy of Klondike Solitaire with the depth of Poker, made specifically for mobile phones.

Solitaire is one of, if not the most successful games and computer games of all time. The problem is most popular variants of Solitaire are not really optimized for play on phones, and in-fact, as designed, are not even great games. Sage Solitaire is a modern solitaire game, that fixes the biggest problems of solitaire, and the result is a great game for everyone with a phone.

Sage Solitaire Facts:
* Sage Solitaire is now free-to-download from the iTunes App Store worldwide
* A one-time $2.99 in-app purchase unlocks additional game modes, and customization features
* An online presskit featuring screenshots and a video trailer is available online
* Qualified press can obtain a full review copy, by contacting the developer

Interesting Solitaire Facts:
* While the titles of Solitaire and Patience, and the myth of Napoleon playing solitaire while incarcerated all point to possible French origin, most experts place the birth of solitaire in the Baltics, Germany, and/or Scandinavia.

* The earliest mention of solitaire in print is 1746, but the more well-known card game variants arise more toward the later part of the century. The oldest known book referring to Patience was published in Moscow in 1826.

* In Dutch and Norwegian the word for solitaire refers to “Kabal” loosely translated as “secret knowledge” and may relate to some relationship certain solitaire games had to fortune telling.

* Wikipedia lists over 300 versions of Solitaire/Patience on its Web site. Variants of these games are said to reach into the thousands – nearly all of which were never invented specifically for play on mobile phones.

Solitaire and Computers:
* Microsoft is reported to have included solitaire in Windows to socialize the new mouse-style input required to operate a graphical user interface. The game was originally programmed by an intern, Wes Cherry, and the card-side artwork was from Susan Kare, who designed the original Macintosh’s icons, while Cherry’s girlfriend at the time helped design some of the infamous card backs.

* Microsoft Solitaire celebrated its 25th Anniversary in May of 2015. Ms. Kare recently released a physical card deck featuring her original artwork from the first version of Microsoft Solitaire.

* Freecell Solitaire, the second most well-known variant today, was itself a variant of older solitaire games created by then 10-year-old Paul Alfille who then programmed a version for the legendary computer network PLATO where it began its ascendance in popularity on computer systems and networks.

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
* Optimized for iPhone 5, iPhone 6/6 Plus
* Requires iOS 6.0 or later
* 47.1 MB

Pricing and Availability:
Sage Solitaire 1.0 is Free and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Games category. A one-time $2.99 (USD) in-app purchase unlocks additional game modes, and customization features.
