San Francisco, California – PERALTA | San Francisco, a local maker of sophisticated bags and cases for tech-savvy women, presents the new Abby iPhone Case – a beautiful micro-purse with a scratch-free pocket to keep the iPhone safe and easily accessible. The Case accommodates an iPhone 6s Plus (or smaller phone) along with minimalist basic necessities – glasses, keys, wallet, mints and lipstick. In a choice of two elegant, water-resistant LUNA(R) fabrics or in naturally-pebbled black or mahogany leather, the beautiful Abby iPhone Case supports bold, smart, and creative women with a bag that’s small enough to stay out of the way, yet big enough to keep key essentials quickly accessible.

It’s a great-looking and trust-worthy sidekick to keep women prepared for whatever comes their way.”

The PERALTA Abby iPhone Case combines gorgeous fabric from women-owned manufacturer, LUNA(R) Textiles or naturally-tanned, pebbled leather with a thoughtfully designed interior that includes: an UltraSuede(R)-lined phone pocket to keep screens clean and protected; a side pocket to keep a few small items organized; and a main compartment for slightly bulkier items like glasses or wallets. Premium-quality chrome hardware attaches a removable leather strap to two side hooks, so the Abby can be worn as a micro-purse or stowed strap-free in another bag, keeping essentials together. The case closes with YKK locking zippers, ensuring that women’s necessities stay safely stowed inside, and gold lining lights up the interior making it easy to identify contents.

Women can choose from PERALTA’s supple, naturally-tanned and naturally-pebbled, full grain leather in black or mahogany, or choose LUNA(R) textiles’ regal, gold on blue “Plaza” or red on red “Gala” fabric. Luna’s Nanotex(R) technology adds durability and water-resistance to these elegant fabrics. The Abby iPhone Case can be attached to the PERALTA Balani Backpack with PERALTA’s quick access leather tether, further enhancing organization.

The Abby iPhone Case joins PERALTA’s line of bags and cases to support women in their busy daily lives, including the Balani women’s laptop backpack, the Scarlett iPad Pro Sleeve, the Etta Accessories pouch and the PERALTA leather key tether.

DVDFab Meta Info Upload Competition Kicked Off

No Comments

Beijing, China – Fengtao Software, the industry leader specializing in DVD, Blu-ray and video backup solutions, rolls out a competition calling its users to upload and share the Meta information of their Blu-ray discs with the entire DVDFab community, and in return, the participants can get corresponding Forum titles, Amazon Gift Cards, or even cash. The competition starts today, and ends on February 20, 2016. Move on for the detailed story.

What’s Meta Info and Why the Competition:
Meta Info, or Metadata of a Blu-ray disc refers to all the basic information about that disc and the contents on it: title, synopsis, release date, runtime, audio/video formats, genre, director, actors and so on. All these information are very useful, but not deep enough for most DVDFab users and that is what the Meta Info feature is all about. Meta Info is a brand new feature introduced in two of the DVDFab Blu-ray related products, Blu-ray Copy and Blu-ray Ripper, to be more specific. The primary goal of this feature is to gather the above mentioned Meta information of Blu-ray discs, which can be achieved by DVDFab customers manually editing and uploading via the DVDFab client. As to the reason for running a competition on this, the one learnt from inside the DVDFab is that although there are already more than 5,000 uploads, the number is still a tiny drop in the ocean, considering there are perhaps more than 100,000 Blu-ray discs out there. So, a competition is thrown out to drive people into the campaign.

Improve the Analysis Accuracy of Blu-ray Products:
The Meta information of the Blu-ray discs uploaded by customers is stored on DVDFab Server and everyone, paid or nonpaid user, can access. By doing this, next time when users open a Blu-ray disc, what DVDFab presents them will not be just a long list of different titles without any clues on what exactly those titles are, unless they preview them one by one, which by the way is time consuming and frustrating. On the contrary, with the help of the Meta Info, each title’s name, what that title is all about, the running time etc, all these information is crystal clearly displayed in front of users’ eyes. This could be incredibly helpful especially when they are dealing with a TV Show disc which may have more than 20 episodes on it. Therefore, the analysis accuracy gets improved and the user experience is brought to a higher level.

Smarten up Your Home Media Streaming Server:
Another benefit of the Meta Info feature could excite those home streaming server owners quite a lot. Normally, to manage a ton of movies, TV Shows and other videos in a multimedia streaming server could require a lot of time and energy, because users have to manually rename each file so that the media server can sort and filter all the files into correct groups. However, with the help of Meta Info, this trouble is no longer a headache. After ripping or converting, DVDFab will rename the output Blu-ray movie or TV Show episodes with correct titles, together with the correct season and episode numbers. In this manner, a home streaming server, say Plex, Serviio, or Vidon, can easily manage those media contents and list them clearly for effortless browsing and playback. All the users need to do is to select the movie, or name a specific episode from a TV Show, and then press the Play button to start enjoying the leisure times.

Jumping Alien Astronaut Hops into your Heart in Hoppy Naut Game

No Comments

Henderson, Nevada – Shark Apps, LLC today is pleased to announce the release and immediate availability of Happy Naut 1.0, its entertaining new side-scrolling jumping game developed for iOS and Android devices. Players take on the role of a hopping alien astronaut – or Hoppy Naut – in order to traverse diverse landscapes, avoid exotic obstacles, and collect coins. In an exciting twist, the terrain changes for every turn, offering hours of repeated gameplay.

“With Hoppy Naut, you just never know what kind of world you’re going to encounter,” says Tony Godfrey, the game’s creator. “It’s absolutely addictive. As the landscape changes, even for a world you’ve mastered, you get to learn all over again where to jump over a chasm, avoid a barrier, or earn that stash of coins.”

The endless variety of this casual side-scroller means that each landscape in Hoppy Naut is playable multiple times. Players can focus their attention on beating old scores and winning coins to unlock additional playable Naut characters and up to six different game worlds. Coins can be found by landing on creepy-crawlies or searching for them throughout the terrain, including large caches of riches stored in strange alien towns. Hoppy Naut also allows players to earn Achievements by reaching fun goals, as well as to compete on Leaderboards for the highest score.

Under development since June 2015, Hoppy Naut’s game mechanics were created originally as a proof-of-concept in only a few weeks, and it only took 7 months of development to release the app in 10 major languages. Hoppy Naut is free to play, and any in-app purchase also removes ads. All advertising is on an opt-in basis – players can receive a gift of coins by watching a sponsored video, or skip the video entirely and continue playing.

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

Pricing and Availability:
Happy Naut 1.0 is Free and available worldwide through the App Store in the Games category. There is also an Android version available on Google Play. It will be released soon on Amazon Kindle.

FlexBright – Help protects your eyes while using your phone

No Comments

Raleigh, North Carolina – Intelligent Apps, LLC today is thrilled to announce the release and immediate availability of FlexBright 1.0, their new productivity app developed for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices. The familiar glow of small cellphone screens and tablets in a darkened room is a familiar sight to most Americans, and with an increasing number using these smart devices every year, eye health problems are on the rise.

The blue light that emanates from these devices has been linked to eye fatigue, and has even been shown to prevent a good night’s sleep – even if the brightness has been adjusted. FlexBright offers a smart solution to this ticking health time bomb.

FlexBright works in the background monitoring users’ exposure to blue light, prompting users to change their screen brightness to acceptable levels when eye-strain has been detected, as well as an automatic adjustment for the screen’s brightness at certain times of day, including sunrise and sundown. For data lovers, an analytical tool has been included in Flexbright, offering dynamic charts that show you all the adjustments that the app has made over the past twenty-four hour period.

“Using your smart devices during the night time exposes the eye to blue light which simply isn’t naturally present, which fools the brain into thinking that it’s earlier than it really is,” said the CEO of Intelligent Apps, Sam Aljamal. “Combined with an overly bright phone light, or even over-dimming of the light, eye strain joins in. Over time, that has a catastrophic effect on the quality of your sleep – and your actual eyesight. We created FlexBright as a way to minimize this risk.”

App Features:
* Smart eye strain calculator to monitor exposure to blue light
* Prompt you if high blue light exposure is detected before bedtime
* Provide warning and exercises to rest your eyes when high strain is detected throughout the day
* Set daytime brightness and nighttime brightness for your device
* App will determine your local sunrise and sunset times to use for day and night brightness if you like
* App will record your device brightness for 24 hours and present it in beautiful and dynamic bar chart

Doctors have noted in recent years that not only does blue light disrupt the body’s natural circadian rhythms – the natural human cycle of sleep and wakefulness – but also disrupts melatonin, the sleep hormone. However, a disrupted melatonin cycle also spells bad news for general health: it also works as an antioxidant that many researchers say may help slow the progression of cancer and other serious health issues that come later in life.

The smart thing for all users of cellular and tablet devices to do is to protect their eyesight and melatonin production by installing FlexBright. The app automatically adjusts screen brightness and offer prompts when it is time to take a break from watch YouTube, catching up on emails or browsing social media.

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

Pricing and Availability:
FlexBright 1.0 is $1.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Productivity category.
