The Engaging Rock-Approach in Music Education Shows Great Results

No Comments

Helsinki, Finland – Musopia Ltd, developers of innovative music education software that simplifies the learning process, has been diligently collaborating with Gary Heimbauer to create a complete sequential curriculum, called Play for All, around their apps – FourChords and Ukeoke. Gary is the former head of curriculum for Little Kids Rock, the leading music education non profit-organisation.

Statistics have shown that only 1 out of every 10 people that try to learn an instrument actually succeed and continue playing. Luckily, new digital teaching methods are emerging that can help students experience success much faster and gain the confidence they need to continue.

“We want to make a difference in how people learn to play instruments and to create a fast track to the fun part of playing,” explains Topi Lopponen, Musopia’s CEO. “The way music is being produced and consumed has changed drastically over the last 50 years, but music education is still widely reliant on music theory with its hard-to-learn scales and notations. We believe that bringing contemporary hit songs into classroom teaching with an easy-to-use app experience, similar to games that many children are already playing, will increase the likelihood of children learning the basics of musicianship that they can benefit from all their lives.”

The Play For All! is a fun and student centered curriculum for guitar, ukulele and beyond. The Play for All -course for music teachers shows them how to guide their students from complete beginners to total rock stars in a way that allows learners of all levels to play and progress together and as they learn popular songs they know and love. Musopias apps, called FourChords and Ukeoke, act as a base for learning music theory, playing skills and expressing oneself musically either solo or as a part of a band. The apps are built for differentiation – the teacher can easily keep 20 kids with different skill levels engaged and has more time to give individual attention to the students. The curriculum in combination with the apps is an ever-updating resource with up-to date songs, a complete curriculum with progression, all the support material needed in the classroom and video tutorials highlighting the best-practices in real classroom situations.

The course is based on the true classroom experience of Gary Heimbauer, the former head of curriculum for Little Kids Rock, a music education non-profit that serves over half a million school children throughout the US. “When I was at Little Kids Rock the single most popular and effective resource that we created for teachers to use with their students was home made play-along videos where the chords light up on the screen. So when we discovered the FourChords app with chords, lyrics, and melody, it was a match made in heaven. Soon after, we worked together to make it everything a music teacher could dream of by adding the ability to transpose to new keys along with simplified chord options, tempo control, chord search functionality and much more. The apps are constantly improving while keeping a simple interface. We’ve seen them quickly become a central part of Modern Band programs across the county.”

Biorhythm App for iOS Helps Users Determine Peak Performance Cycles

No Comments

Seoul, Korea, Republic Of – Independent developer, Jeonghwan Kim today is proud to announce the release and immediate availability of Biorhythm – Tips for your future 5.36, an important update to his lifestyle app for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices. Biorhythm displays a user’s physical, emotional, intuitive, and intellectual cycles, based on their birthdate. The app is based on the work of 19th century researcher Dr. Wilhelm Fliess of Germany, as well as the later work of Dr. Alfred Teltscher of Austria who studied his 5,000 students in 1923 and added intuitive rhythms.

Biorhythm – Tips for your future 5.36 helps users track their physical, emotional, intuitive, and intellectual cycles. The three cycles are repeated in a uniform pattern based on a person’s birthday. The cycles begin at birth and repeat in a uniform sine wave fashion throughout the person’s life. The cycles are said to predict how well a person will perform physically, emotionally, intuitively, and intellectually on a specific day.

“Many have long believed that tracking your Biorhythmic cycles can help a person determine their peak performance days in specific categories, as well as days when they may not perform as well. Biorhythms can also alert a user to ‘critical’ days when there may be added risk or uncertainty,” says developer Jeonghwan Kim. “Until now, there has not been an easy-to-use way to track a person’s biorhythmic cycles. But, by using my app, the information is always at your fingertips.”

The four biorhythm cycles are as follows:
* Physical rhythm: 23 days
* Emotional rhythm: 28 days
* Intellectual rhythm: 33 days
* Intuitive rhythm: 38 days

The combination of the 23- and 28-day cycles repeat every 644 days, and the triple combination of 23-, 28-, and 33-day cycles repeats every 21,252 days. Each rhythm has a value from -100 to +100, and this value indicates the status of the current cycle. Low stage: -100 to -1, High stage: +1 to +100, Dangerous Days: 0. (At the time of transition from + value to – value or from – value to + value.)

Features:
* Display the four rhythms of a user as values and graphs
* Change dates easily to view biorhythms on multiple dates
* Connect with analysis functions
* Ability to manage multiple users’ biorhythms
* Performance analysis by biorhythm
* Calculate the average of multiple users’ biorhythms
* Informative Help function
* Share biorhythms via text messages or email
* Preview future biorhythm cycles

By entering their birthdate, multiple users can track their biorhythms on the same iPhone. They can then calculate the average of all users’ biorhythms, enabling them to see when the entire group is at their peak. Biorhythmic cycles can be shared via text message or email.

What’s New in Version 5.36:
* Bug fixes

By using Biorhythm – Tips for your future, anyone can easily track and analyze their physical, emotional, intuitive, and intellectual cycles. The information will help users perform at their best. A free, limited version of the app is also available in the App Store.

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
* Requires iOS 8.0 or later
* 2.8 MB

Pricing and Availability:
Biorhythm – Tips for your future 5.36 is only $1.99 USD (or an equivalent amount in other currencies) and is available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Lifestyle category. Redeem codes are available to members of the media upon request.

DEVONthink 2.9.15 brings new PDF sidebar and High Sierra compatibility

No Comments

Coeur d’Alene, Idaho – DEVONtechnologies updates all editions of its intelligent information and document manager DEVONthink for Mac with a rewritten PDF sidebar and a new URL command for creating groups. Version 2.9.15 also further improves referencing materials from HTML and Markdown documents, extends drag-and-drop for Tinderbox, and lists available sync stores for sync locations. Finally, the update improves compatibility to the upcoming macOS High Sierra. It’s free and recommended for all users.

DEVONthink is DEVONtechnologies’ document and information management solution for the Mac. It supports a large variety of file formats and stores them in a database enhanced by artificial intelligence (AI). Many document formats can be directly viewed and edited, PDFs annotated. DEVONnote is DEVONthink’s little sibling with a reduced feature set targeted at users with notetaking-centric needs.

Sophisticated organization tools, AI-based techniques that handle even the largest collections, and numerous integration options make DEVONthink the work environment of choice for researchers, lawyers, and educators. With its fast, reliable, and secure synchronization users keep their data available on all their Macs. DEVONthink To Go for iPad and iPhone completes the DEVONthink ecosystem.

* Keep your data together in one place
* Scan your paper, archive your email
* Let artificial intelligence help you file your data
* Sync your data to all your devices, fast and secure
* Share your data with anyone, whether they use Mac or PC

New in DEVONthink and DEVONnote 2.9.15:
Version 2.9.15 of DEVONthink features a new PDF sidebar rewritten from the ground up. It replaces the system PDF sidebar with a faster and more robust version, fixing many related issues on macOS El Capitan and later. The new sidebar also offers better clipboard, drag-and-drop, and keyboard navigation support. A new URL command allows to create new groups, e.g., for use in bookmarklets or cross-platform workflows. Tinderbox users enjoy extended drag-and-drop.

Further, Markdown and HTML documents can use relative and absolute links to reference materials. The update enhances compatibility to, e.g., JavaScript libraries such as MathJax too. Groups created by importing data, e.g., from Evernote, are no longer excluded from classification and tagging. This makes it easier to classify the imported materials manually later. DEVONthink also lists the available sync stores in a sync location to help setting up the synchronization.

In addition to further usability enhancements and bug fixes, the update to DEVONthink 2.9.15 brings compatibility changes for the upcoming macOS High Sierra. It fixes some minor issues related to High Sierra and enables the email integration of DEVONthink Pro Office to work with the new version of Apple Mail.

Finally, DEVONnote 2.9.15 receives the new URL command for creating groups, too, as well as many of the detail enhancements and relevant bug fixes. The updates for all editions of DEVONthink and DEVONnote are free for existings users and highly recommended.

System requirements:
* OS X Mavericks and later

All editions can be downloaded from www.devontechnologies.com and be test-driven for free before they need to be licensed.

LinkOptimizer for InDesign Improves Batch Processing of Duplicate Links

No Comments

Toronto (ON) Canada – Zevrix Solutions today announces LinkOptimizer 5.1.6, a maintenance update to its image processing automation plug-in for Adobe InDesign. Awarded 4 out of 5 stars by Computer Arts magazine, LinkOptimizer automates complex image manipulation tasks helping users reduce the size of InDesign links, save production costs, and repurpose InDesign documents for web and mobile devices..

The new version solves an issue in which batch processing under some complex workflow conditions could result in overwriting of optimized duplicate links placed in multiple InDesign documents. LinkOptimizer will now automatically create a separate folder for optimized links of each InDesign file in the batch if the source documents are located in the same folder and share a single output location with a static folder name. The update also fixes an error that could occur when using a time stamp in variable image name, and improves rendering of processing progress user interface.

“LinkOptimizer has changed my life and saved me days and days of work as a retoucher for an international quarterly magazine,” says Steve Krason of Chicago based SK Design Group. “It’s a lifesaver”.

LinkOptimizer works automatically with Photoshop to eliminate the excess image data of InDesign links, perform essential image adjustments and convert image formats. For example, with just a click of a button users can:

* Optimize dozens of InDesign files
* Scale and crop images to match their dimensions in InDesign
* Change their resolution to 300 dpi
* Convert RGB images to CMYK
* Resave JPEGs as TIFF
* Run a Photoshop action on each image

As a result users can save gigabytes of disk space and countless hours of optimizing images manually, accelerate document output, reduce job turnaround and cut costs through faster processing.

Pricing and Availability:
LinkOptimizer can be purchased from Zevrix website for $259.95 USD (Lite version: $179.95) as well as from Adobe Exchange and authorized resellers. Trial is also available for download. The update is free for LinkOptimizer 5.x users and $130 to upgrade from previous versions. LinkOptimizer requires Mac OS X 10.7-10.12 and Adobe InDesign / Photoshop CS5-CC 2017.

The included safety features provide a range of options to aid the user in case of an accident and when there is a need to attract attention to one’s situation:
* An alarm function can be triggered by pulling the headphones out of the device.
* An emergency call or SMS to a preset contact with your current location can be triggered instantly using a dedicated gesture or via buttons located conveniently on the running screen.
* When running at dusk or in low light, jS Run Pro can improve the runner’s presence to passing traffic or other runners via a flashing screen that acts as a side light.

Armband Optimised:
Typical tracker apps usually display all run data on the one screen and the screen is fixed in one orientation, typically in portrait format on the phone, making a quick glance to read the current run metrics awkward to view if the phone is held in an armband. jS Running solution is to offer many enhancements to make monitoring performance whilst running with an armband easy such as:

* Each metric is displayed separately during workout, with big readouts and unique colors.
* The unique adjustable angle of display allows the user to rotate the readout of the running metric for the optimal angle to read at a glance.
* With one tap the contrast of the screen is boosted temporarily to ensure perfect visibility for any light condition.

Other features:
* Targets can be set for either duration or distance. Any duration can be set to match the user needs and any distance including the common 5k,10k, 1/2 or full marathon presets.
* The History function shows all previous runs data and the route the user took for each run.
* Each run metric can be compared with previous runs data in a clear bar charts display. Simple rotation of the iPhone from portrait to landscape orientation, from any of the summary or history screens, triggers the bar chart mode.

Device Requirements:
* iPhone and iPod touch
* Requires iOS 10.0 or later
* 64.8 MB

Located in the beautiful city of Zurich, Switzerland, Circulos GmbH was founded in 2014 by George Nasraoui and Andrew J Burns. Switzerland is the place where people master the art of outdoor sports, no matter what the temperature outside, be it 10F or 100F (-12C or 37C) you will see people running or cycling outside. So it was natural for us to get into the fitness apps and it all started when we thought we needed an app that is easy to control by gestures and glance free.
