CountUp – The Connected Counter Loaded with New Features

No Comments

New York, New York – Individuals and teams who require powerful group tallying and data analysis can now benefit from extensive new features in the recent update to CountUp – The Connected Counter (a.k.a. CountUp) for iPhone and Android – developed by Countup LLC, version 2 is now available via the App Store or Google Play.

Essentially, CountUp is an innovative cloud-based platform that lets individual users or teams count virtually anything – from the number of attendees at a conference, to the number of cars using a road, the number of thunder claps during a storm, and the possibilities go on. Basically, if something can be counted, then CountUp has it covered.

Unlike hand-held clickers or conventional clicker apps, CountUp can be used by more than 1 user (a team) and tracks each count by user location, which is extremely important for accuracy, accountability and transparency. Users who need to count multiple things quickly can also create a “collection”, which is a group of counters. They can also tell the app to email them when a pre-set threshold is met (e.g. 400 conference attendees, 25 white cars, etc.).

Furthermore, since all data is safely stored in the cloud, users can work offline and automatically sync later when they establish a wifi or data connection, as well as access their private profile from any device. Teams can also launch group counters and use them concurrently, and compare them in real-time. And now in version 2, users can enjoy key new features that make an already impressive app even better, including the option to:

* Track location of each count in a counter or a collection (i.e. a group of counters) via a map interface with a draggable marker for more accurate location tracking
* Use form fields (e.g. text boxes) in counters to rapidly collect data for surveys, inventory, etc.
* Swipe on counters to open a quick menu to view data, add users to a team, change settings, and delete counters
* Export data (e.g. form fields, location, addresses) as a .CSV spreadsheet file for further analysis, and for creating graphs and charts
* Control which individual team members can access data

“CountUp is ideal for government workers, field researchers, event managers, stadium and venue staff, hobbyists, enthusiasts, and anyone else who wants to mobilize teams quickly, start counting and collecting data, and generate instant results,” commented Girish Chhugani of Countup LLC.

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

Pricing and Availability:
CountUp – The Connected Counter 2.8 is Free and available worldwide through the App Store in the Productivity category. There is also an Android version available on Google Play.

Countup LLC was founded by Girish Chhugani in April of 2014 and is based in New York City. As former CIO for NYC Office of The Mayor, Girish and his team were responsible for providing IT support for the Septemeber 11th Memorial Services every year. On the 10th anniversary of September 11th, the memorial park was opened to the victim’s families for the first time, and City Hall needed a real-time tool to effectively manage more than 12,000 attendees trying to enter a 3000 capacity park at the same time from different entrances after the memorial services concluded. There was no tool available in the market to handle something like this and Girish created a crude version of Countup to manage this. The tool was extremely successful in managing the crowds and served as the inspiration for Countup. All Material and Software (C) Copyright 2016 Countup LLC. All Rights Reserved.

Carl Can Divide 1.0 Motivates Children Ages 10+ to Practice Times Tables

No Comments

Ottawa, Canada – codeDependent Software today is happy to announce the release and immediate availability of Carl Can Divide 1.0, their new entertaining and educational game for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices. Kids will enjoy showing off their math skills, as they help Carl the fish along his journey on the ocean floor. This app offers a fun challenge for children ages 10 and up, as they hone their division skills; as well as their knowledge of square roots, and prime numbers.

Carl Can Divide leads kids through an exciting challenge under the waves, aiding Carl in his journeys along the way. Carl is a very smart fish, he’s especially good at division. Carl’s friend Amy loves it when Carl solves math problems for her. It delights her so much, that she gives Carl a prize for each level he correctly completes.

“My personal goal is to increase the proficiency for our kids to have instant mental recall of multiplication and division facts,” says developer Evelyn Eldridge. “These are areas that I feel hinder future success in math. I see this over and over, where kids struggle with math in later years because they cannot recognize simple math facts. ‘Carl Can Divide’ helps a child’s recall of math facts, rewarding them with entertaining gameplay, a place on the leaderboard, and virtual prize awards each time they help Carl safely make his journey.”

To begin, players select a divisor, for example: “5.” Then the journey begins, as Carl the happy fish progresses across the screen. Bubbles float up from the ocean floor that contain numbers. Players must swipe their finger on the bubbles containing numbers that are evenly divisible by the number they selected. Swipe the correct bubble, and Carl advances across the screen a bit and the player racks up points. Miss swiping too many of the correct answers, or swipe too many of the bubbles containing the wrong answers, and Carl will have to end his journey in order to hide from the “bad guys,” who include sharks, jellyfish, mantas, and more.

The challenge increases with every successful journey. Players begin the game by attempting to select only the number bubbles divisible evenly by 10. Then they advance level by level, by looking for numbers divisible by 5, 2, 11, 4, 9, 3, 6, 8, 8, 7, and 12. If the player successfully navigates those waters, they’ll take on square roots, and primes.

New users can make use of the short, yet informative tutorial, which tells them all about Carl and his friend Amy, as well as showing them how to play the game. The animated tutorial offers a sample of the same entertaining graphics, animation, and sound effects that players will enjoy while playing the actual game.

“As a university professor in mathematics, I sometimes see students that lack the confidence to tackle math problems for themselves,” says Jeff Orchard, University of Waterloo Math Professor. “One of the simplest ways to build math confidence early on is to memorize the times tables. Anyone can do it if they try. And a game like this can actually make it fun.”

Each level of play in “Carl” lasts only a few minutes, making it easy for kids to play, “just one more level,” before dinner or bedtime. While the game is easy to understand, and kids can easily figure out what they have to do to succeed, it also presents a steadily increasing challenge, pushing the child to improve their math skills.

Carl Can Divide was developed and tested together with students and teachers to provide a fun solution to the tedious task of practicing times tables, square roots and prime numbers. “Playing Carl gives my class the needed number practice while the graphics and ease of use quickly engage the students. The easy swipe action and speed of the game works for all levels”, says grade 5/6 teacher, Heather Earl.

Tracking a player’s progress is a breeze, via the concise, one-page report that can be generated and sent via email to parents and teachers. The report displays the various levels of the game the child has participated in, their best score for the level, and their average score. In addition, the report also indicates how many times a level has been played, how long the child played, which answers they missed tapping, and which incorrect answers they tapped. All of the information offers an excellent report on a child’s increasing ability with division and multiplication facts.

As well as local tracking of accomplishments, the game also awards random virtual prizes at the successful completion of each level. In addition, the game is Game Center compatible, allowing kids to view their accomplishments, and view where they rank compared to other players around the world, challenging them to improve their score.

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch
* Requires iOS 9.0 and higher
* Universal Application
* 31.7 MB

Pricing and Availability:
Carl Can Divide Full Version 1.0 is $1.99 USD (or an equivalent amount in other currencies), and is available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Education category. Promo codes are available to members of the press. The game is available in French, Spanish, Dutch, Czech, Italian, Simplified Chinese, Swedish, and Portuguese. For more information about Carl Can Divide, or bulk educational purchases, please contact Evelyn Eldridge at codeDependent Software.

Miss swiping too many of the correct answers, or swipe too many of the bubbles containing the wrong answers, and Carl will have to end his journey in order to hide from the “bad guys,” who include sharks, jellyfish, mantas, and more.

The challenge increases with every successful journey. Players begin the game by attempting to select only the number bubbles divisible evenly by 10. Then they advance level by level, by looking for numbers divisible by 5, 2, 11, 4, 9, 3, 6, 8, 8, 7, and 12. If the player successfully navigates those waters, they’ll take on square roots, and primes.

New users can make use of the short, yet informative tutorial, which tells them all about Carl and his friend Amy, as well as showing them how to play the game. The animated tutorial offers a sample of the same entertaining graphics, animation, and sound effects that players will enjoy while playing the actual game.

“As a university professor in mathematics, I sometimes see students that lack the confidence to tackle math problems for themselves,” says Jeff Orchard, University of Waterloo Math Professor. “One of the simplest ways to build math confidence early on is to memorize the times tables. Anyone can do it if they try. And a game like this can actually make it fun.”

Each level of play in “Carl” lasts only a few minutes, making it easy for kids to play, “just one more level,” before dinner or bedtime. While the game is easy to understand, and kids can easily figure out what they have to do to succeed, it also presents a steadily increasing challenge, pushing the child to improve their math skills.

Carl Can Divide was developed and tested together with students and teachers to provide a fun solution to the tedious task of practicing times tables, square roots and prime numbers. “Playing Carl gives my class the needed number practice while the graphics and ease of use quickly engage the students. The easy swipe action and speed of the game works for all levels”, says grade 5/6 teacher, Heather Earl.

Tracking a player’s progress is a breeze, via the concise, one-page report that can be generated and sent via email to parents and teachers. The report displays the various levels of the game the child has participated in, their best score for the level, and their average score. In addition, the report also indicates how many times a level has been played, how long the child played, which answers they missed tapping, and which incorrect answers they tapped. All of the information offers an excellent report on a child’s increasing ability with division and multiplication facts.

As well as local tracking of accomplishments, the game also awards random virtual prizes at the successful completion of each level. In addition, the game is Game Center compatible, allowing kids to view their accomplishments, and view where they rank compared to other players around the world, challenging them to improve their score.

Fitmanual – Helps you to complete the Activity Ring every day

No Comments

Essen, Germany – Jan Roskosch today is proud to announce the release of Fitmanual 1.5, an extraordinary Apple Watch and iPhone App that calculates your burned calories for a Workout at which you could not take your Apple Watch with you. These calories are then immediately added to the Activity Ring so that you can be sure to always reach your daily goal! With 25 activities to choose from this App helps you to make more out of your Apple Watch.

“I’m an 17 years old student from Germany, who loves his Apple Watch and doing sport with it. My Sister and I love to complete the Activity Ring every day. But if you’re doing an activity that is not supported by the Apple Watch, its difficult to reach this goal,” says Jan Roskosch, creator of Fitmanual.

Whether you went out to swim, played American Football or did some Kick Boxing, you surely didn’t take the Apple Watch with you. Fitmanual is an extremely helpful App that calculates your burned calories during these activities by regarding your weight,the duration and of course the effort of your activity. It’s easy-to-use and it even shows you how long you have to do another activity to burn the same amount of calories. Fitmanual includes a list of 25 activities, which gets longer with every update:

* Aerobic
* American Football
* Badminton
* Basketball
* Canoeing
* Handball
* Hockey
* Judo
* Karate
* Kick boxing
* Rowing
* Rugby
* Sailing
* Skiing
* Snowboarding
* Soccer
* Squash
* Swimming, slow
* Swimming, medium
* Swimming, fast
* Tennis
* Volleyball
* Windsurfing
* Wateraerobic
* Waterskiing

Unlike other Apps, Fitmanual calculates the calories automatically. You don’t have to know how many calories you’ve burned. Therefore Fitmanual relies on highly accurate values for each and every workout. These values have been measured in scientific tests, which is why the amount of calories that is calculated is very precise. After a workout you don’t want to spend much time touching on your device. With that in mind the App was created to be easy to use on both the iPhone and the Apple Watch with a simple user interface. It’s convenient and sophisticated!

“With the help of this App my sister and I are now able to track every Handball and Swimming workout we’re doing and we reach our daily goal every time. It’s fun to see complete rings for every day!”

Device Requirements:
* iPhone and iPod touch with Apple Watch support
* Requires iOS 9.1 or later
* 5.9 MB

Pricing and Availability:
Fitmanual 1.5 is only $2.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide through the App Store in the Health and Fitness category. Review copies are available upon request.
