LOC for iOS Makes Reality More Fun, Now With Augmented Reality

No Comments

Litchfield, Illinois – Optimac, Inc. today is pleased to announce the release and immediate availability of LOC 3.0, a milestone release of their popular location-based chat app for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices. LOC offers iOS users worldwide the ability to find interesting conversations fast and without the typical social network barriers. No friending, following, or connecting is necessary. Find chats on a map, conveniently listed by topic, or in augmented reality mode. Users can also pin emoji to the map to share their mood or mark important locations.

Language is no barrier in LOC because it provides real-time translation across 90 languages. Language translation is done on-the-fly, with no noticeable lag. Users can chat with other people from around the world and rely on LOC to translate all messages into the user’s native language. Users merely enable translation in the app’s settings, and LOC takes care of the rest.

LOC can be used to:
* Chat with friends and family
* Meet new people from around the world
* Pin moods and other emojis on the map
* Engage in conversations at sporting events, concerts, conferences, and more
* Collaborate with business colleagues
* Businesses can attract nearby customers
* Get live updates about breaking news from people who are there
* Users can share their location and get help when they need it

“The world doesn’t need another ‘social network.’ What we do need is a better way to communicate with each other, the world over, and without barriers,” explains Scott Gardner, iOS app developer, author, and industry speaker at Optimac, Inc. “When I set out to develop LOC, I wanted to enable global conversations, while still respecting user privacy. In LOC, you can truly chat with anyone, anywhere, anytime, without sharing your personal information. LOC unites the world in conversation.”

Users can find and join chats on topics or at locations that they’re interested in, or create their own. LOC is fast, secure, and easy to use. Chats appear on the map where they are created. Inactive chats will disappear from the map after approximately one day of inactivity. Active chats will keep on going.

Users can pin emoji to the map to share how they’re feeling or mark important locations or events. Emoji annotations only last an hour.

Augmented Reality mode lets users find and join chats happening right around them, and spot locations marked with an emoji.

Users can keep up with multiple conversations and quickly jump back into chats directly from their Watching list. It’s quick and easy to toggle watching on and off from within a chat or in the Watching list.

LOC also allows users to share chats and invite others to join them in a chat via their social networks, email, a text message, and more. If an invited party already has LOC installed on their device, they’ll jump directly into the chat. If they don’t have LOC installed yet, the link will take them to LOC in the App Store, where they can install it and then join the chat.

Users can also share their current location in a chat that other users can tap to go directly to that location on the map. LOC also includes a powerful search to be able to quickly find nearly any place on earth by name, address, or keywords, and jump to it with a single tap.

LOC translates user-created messages across 90 languages, and the app itself is translated into 12 languages, including Chinese (Simplified and Traditional), German, Spanish (Mexico and Spain), Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese (Brazil and Portugal), and Russian.

Version 3.0 also includes several performance improvements and enhancements to improve the user experience.

“LOC makes it easy to chat with people in the neighborhood or around the world. Whether you’re just wanting to stay in touch with friends and family, or meet new people who share similar interests”even if you don’t speak the same language”all while protecting your personal information,” continues Scott. “There are endless possibilities with LOC, and I am excited to see what people come up with!”

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
* Requires iOS 10.0 or later
* Universal Application
* 36.3 MB

Home Fitness – Bodyweight Training Challenge Helps People Get in Shape

No Comments

Coral Springs, Florida – Millions of people want or need to build lean muscle, improve cardiovascular health, achieve optimal BMI, and enhance their overall fitness level. Yet they don’t move ahead and achieve these life-changing and in some cases, life-saving goals because they aren’t interested in heading to the gym several times a week, and don’t want to spend a small fortune on exercise and fitness equipment. Fortunately, they can now overcome these obstacles and get on track for better health by downloading the innovative new iOS app Home Fitness – Bodyweight Training Challenge. Home Fitness is essentially three fitness-focus apps rolled-up into one intuitive and integrated solution: a trainer, a manager, and a motivator:

* Trainer: Home Fitness features multiple workouts that are categorized by beginner, intermediate, and advanced. Users simply choose the workout that appeals to their level and interest (with names like “The Grid” and “6-Minute Abs”). They can also learn about each workout’s degree of intensity (on a scale of 1-5), list of included exercises (e.g. push-ups, climbers, high knees, punches, etc.), and duration.

Regardless of which option they choose, all workouts consist of calisthenics that requires no equipment, and are extremely efficient given that multiple muscles are involved in every movement, including the all-important core muscles that play a pivotal role in overall health and fitness levels. Users can also view and practice individual exercises from the app’s large and constantly-growing database.

* Manager: On the back-end, Home Fitness features a built-in workout manager that lets users monitor, track and analyze their performance and improvement. For example, users can see how much time they’ve spent exercising, and whether their level of intensity over time has fallen, risen, or remained the same. Notably, Home Fitness’ exceptional design and UX displays all of this information at-a-glance, which is a welcome change from many other apps that force users to browse through multiple screens to get the workout data they want.

* Motivator: Since getting fit should be fun and inspiring, Home Fitness also includes a variety of motivational features and tools, including the ability to earn awards after completing workouts and share them with friends via Facebook, Twitter, Email or SMS. Users can also take selfies and compare their improvements over time with the app’s unique timeline window.

“The bodyweight training exercises included in Home Fitness go beyond just improving tone. Because they utilize a range of strategic motor movements – such as running in place, pushing, punching, grasping and so on – they create functional muscles, and improve balance and control,” commented Mark Briscoe of 3Monkeys.io Inc. “And since the app features multiple workout levels, it’s ideal for beginners who are just starting to improve the fitness, to high-performance athletes who want to take their training to the next level.”

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
* Requires iOS 9.0 or later
* 55.1 MB

Pricing and Availability:
Home Fitness – Bodyweight Training Challenge 1.0.2 is Free and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Health & Fitness category.

Language overcomes barriers and a strong vocabulary is the first step to succeeding in any endeavor worldwide, especially as the world gets connected digitally through the World Wide Web supported by the universal language-English. However, often non-native English speakers find it hard to improve their vocabulary beyond a certain level, either due to lack of resources, efficient teachers or they simply find it complex to learn and remember new words.

Memorytrix is one of the few apps in the market that help users learn and remember English vocabulary.

* Game based revision for long-term retention
* Regularly updated content and wordlists

It consists of mnemonic based instructions that help improve memory and focus, leading to quick, better and long-term learning of concepts,” explains Kripa Narasimhan, Founder & CEO of Memorytrix. “Memorytrix makes learning fun with really short lessons, funny word associations and visuals to create a lasting impression on your memory. While users have fun scrolling through flashcards, solving words games and puzzles, they are automatically learning new words and expanding their vocabulary”, adds Kripa Narasimhan, Founder & CEO of Memorytrix.

Students and professionals, in general, and those who are preparing for exams such as TOEFL, IELTS, SAT, GRE, GMAT, can benefit greatly from using the Memorytrix Vocabulary app as it provides comprehensive content and regularly updated wordlists and information for users to polish their vocabulary. In order to ensure long-term retention, the app innovatively intersperses vocabulary exercises with brain games that are highly addictive and provoke users to recall, use and, thus, retain new words in the long term.

Memorytrix provides a comprehensive language based tool that can be accessed anytime, anywhere by anyone. The company promises to further innovate and continually upgrade Memorytrix with latest memory techniques to serve users better. “As mentioned on our website, our mission is to provide high quality memory based learning alternatives,” adds Kripa Narasimhan, Founder & CEO of Memorytrix.

Jumsoft launches a successor to its popular Money app for macOS

No Comments

Vilnius, Lithuania – Jumsoft today is proud to announce the release and immediate availability of Money 5.0, a new version of their highly popular finance management app for macOS. This time, Money gets macOS and iOS releases simultaneously, bringing both macOS and iOS version numbers to 5.0. This marks the fact that the apps were developed simultaneously and work together better than ever. With the new releases, Jumsoft have checked all of the customer request checkboxes and brought a completely revamped user interface, 64-bit architecture, and a variety of other new and improved features to ensure Money stays relevant for generations of devices and operating systems to come.

“The previous version of Money for Mac, which has been on the market for more than 6 years, set a very high bar for what the new Money should be. We have spent countless days aggregating our customers’ feedback to determine the direction the new Money should take. The conclusions brought us back to the drawing-board, because our first goal was to reinvent the way of using all of the features by removing the steep learning curve, and reducing the amount of actions needed to complete every task. At this point I cannot even begin to count, how many ideas were brought to the table and scrapped, until we finally came up with the perfect UI.” – explained Algirdas Unguvaitis, CEO of Jumsoft. “We have completely redesigned and streamlined every aspect of the UI and added features to achieve the ease-of-use we were aiming for. Now the interface stays consistent between features, so using Money to its fullest potential becomes easy and natural.”

The new minimalist UI is the core around which all of the new and improved Money features revolve. The app adopts a common workflow needed to complete various tasks, so Money effectively reduces and even eliminates the learning curve, which is common across different areas of other financial trackers. The new Money still carries powerful support of multiple account types, multiple currencies with automatic rate updates. The macOS version also brings improved smart accounts and smart data import from a variety of popular file formats (QIF, QFX, OFX, CSV, MT940).
