myTuner Radio – Major Release of Version 6 for iOS and Android

No Comments

Porto, Portugal – myTuner Radio team has been working hard during the last months, to give our users the ultimate experience when it comes to listening to the radio, to podcasts and music. Therefore, we are proud to announce that version 6 of myTuner Radio is now live for iOS and Android platforms, bringing you exciting new features and a revamped design. With myTuner Radio, users from any part of the world (even when they are abroad) can listen to more than 50,000 live AM, FM and Online radio stations from over 200 countries/territories and to 1 million podcasts.

We are music lovers, so our first and most relevant effort in this new version, was to improve the radio and music listening experience inside the app. On iOS 11, in all the radio stations that show which songs are being played, users can listen to the full songs from the beginning and add them to playlists. We also give our users the possibility to listen to samples of the songs that played on the radio, so users can discover new hits and favorite songs to listen to. It’s a full integration with Apple Music that users will surely appreciate, that brings together the experience of listening to live radio (AM, FM and Online) with the experience of listening to music (1).

(1) Listening to full songs requires an Apple Music subscription.

Also on iOS, CarPlay has been added to the featured options of myTuner Radio (an app for the Apple TV and Apple Watch were already offered in the previous releases). This extends the possibilities of listening to the radio and to podcasts, to over 200 car models and known aftermarket car audio systems, that represent millions of cars sold every year. Android Auto is also supported since myTuner Radio’s version 5.

Regarding the new features for Android, we should highlight the possibility of listening to offline podcasts. Users can download their favorite podcast episodes and listen to them anytime and anywhere, even without any Wifi/data connection, for instance in airplane mode.

Since most users prefer to listen to their local radio stations and local podcasts, we know how important the local language can be (not only for contents, but also for the usage the app), and this is why we’ve made a complete revamp in the user’s experience of the app. That’s why we added 7 additional languages (now the app supports 20 different languages). The UI was not forgotten and we made a few tweaks that will, for sure, enhance the discoverability of contents. Namely, the “hamburger” design was replaced on iPhones and Android Smartphones by a more straightforward experience with tab buttons.

This new version brings an even larger database of radio stations, with more than 50,000 radio stations available in 200 countries/territories, which is continually being updated on a daily basis, to make sure users always get to listen to their favorite radio stations. The myTuner community truly deserves the constant effort that we are making, since we have reached an astounding number of 40 million historic users!

Encryption app SimpleumSafe for Mac 50% off to welcome the ECSM

No Comments

Hamburg, Germany – Simpleum Media GmbH is proud to join the European Cyber Security Months in October 2017 again this year. In celebration, the German company halves the price of their software this weekend to facilitate the access in the encryption also in terms of price. Under the motto “Now everybody can encrypt” the company offers SimpleumSafe for Apple Mac, enabling users to encrypt data without technical knowledge.

SimpleumSafe is an easy-to-use app for password-based encryption of personal and professional data. Thanks to proven AES-256 encryption technology, used by government, banks and industrial enterprise, all kinds of digital information are well protected against attacks from the Internet, as well as unauthorized access.

Ingeniously simple, simply ingenious:
SimpleumSafe combines intuitive operation and ease-of-use. Much of what users have already learned during daily use of the Mac can be applied using the Encryption-App.

Opening the safe and decryption of files is done via a user-defined password. Moreover, SimpleumSafe offers numerous tools for importing, organizing, tagging, and editing of the files. SimpleumSafe is designed for the average consumer, who wants to protect and archive personal information, as well as for companies who are interested to protect personal information and secret documents from unauthorized access.

Why choose SimpleumSafe?
Nowadays it is not enough “only” to encrypt your data to be protected. If you want to view, edit and organize the encrypted files, they also must be protected. It is important not to leave any trace on the system, and even if a Trojan looks over your shoulder, it can not copy all your files to the Internet.

SimpleumSafe goes a different way than most other encryption programs. After authorization with a password, the files are not provided in the file system. Otherwise they would be completely vulnerable from this moment on. SimpleumSafe makes its own file system and has its own finder. Thus the files remain encrypted for the entire time.

Features:
* Simple and intuitive usability
* Strong encryption with AES-256
* Extensive support of Drag & Drop
* App-to-App Drag & Drop: you can e.g. drag a mail, appointments, contacts, photos etc. directly into a safe
* Organize files similar to Mac Finder
* Mark files and folders with tags
* Store safe locally, on USB device, and in the cloud
* Create as many Safes as you want
* Comment files and folders
* Mark files as Favorites for fast access
* Number of files and size is only limited by the free space of your device
* Show file content for Microsoft Office and iWorks documents, PDF, Images (jpg, png, gif, tiff), Text (txt, rtf, rtfd), Movies (mp4, mov), Audio and more
* Picture viewer

System Requirements:
* Mac OS X Version 10.10 Yosemite or higher
* 64-bit processor
* 49 MB

Special Price:
SimpleumSafe for Mac is available from Friday, 29.09.2017 till Sunday, 01.10.2017, for the promotional price of $8.99 USD (instead of $17.99) in the Mac App Store – in German and English.

Live Running Simulator: Bringing Competitive Edge to Running Routines

No Comments

Riga, Latvia – Intelligent Design SIA, a small studio located in Europe, today is pleased to announce the release of Live Running Simulator 1.0, its unique mobile application for iOS and Android devices. Live Running Simulator enables runners to race against other runners from various parts of the world, in real-time. The app optimizes technologies such as GPS and augmented reality to give runners an option to compete either with the CPU or with other runners, in different race categories (such as 400m, 800m, 1,500m and so on).

Live Running Simulator offers several other features that make it interesting and convenient for the users. For instance, the audio updates notify users about change in position and approaching opponents during a race. Users can select individual, single or tournament run modes and also opt for difficulty levels. There is also an option of watching highlight replays and a possibility to examine a graph of changed positions.

To make the user experience even more realistic, the app allows runners to create personalized 3D avatars. An avatar will run at the same speed as the user in the real world. The app serves to aid to several joggers and marathon runners who can now look forward to watching their personalized avatars running against avatars of other runners from across the world:

* Race with other runners on a real-time basis, or with the CPU
* Select individual run mode, single run mode or tournament mode
* Participate in any of the six races: 400m, 800m, 1,500m, 3,000m, 5,000m, or 10,000m
* Opt for level of difficulty: amateur, semi-pro, or pro
* Personalization options for 3D avatar
* Progress registration
* Audio updates during race
* Highlight replays and position graph
* Invite Facebook friends to inner circle competition

This studio’s mission is to develop mobile applications that do not simply entertain or kill time, but help users grow and fulfil their mental and/or physical potential. “We designed Live Running Simulator app so that more and more people adopt running as a routine exercise to stay fit and healthy, and enjoy competing with other runners from far corners of the world,” explained Roberts Austrums, board member of Intelligent Design SIA. “We also realised that many people find running alone unexciting, coupled with the fact that human mind responds better to competition, they decided to build an app that gives runners a real-life experience of racing with other runners. With Live Running Simulator app, one can compete with the virtual running community, and track his or her best time for each distance, as well as, compare their best time and medals earned with others. This app is ideal for maintaining good health, lose weight and a spark to daily workout regimes.”

Device Requirements for iPhone:
* System: Requires iOS 7.0 or later
* Size: 255 MB

Device Requirements for Android:
* System: 4.0.3. and up

Pricing and Availability:
Live Running Simulator App is currently available for Free (with in app purchases) on the App Store in the Health & Fitness category and also available for Free (with in app purchases) on the Google Play Store in the Health & Fitness category.

Half8Fish LLC releases Videux 1.2 for macOS – Powerful Video Organizer

No Comments

Boca Raton, Florida – Half8Fish LLC is pleased to announce the immediate availability of Videux version 1.2 for macOS. Videux is an organizer, player, and workflow assistant for video that is highly optimized to get tens of thousands of videos organized and ready for editing. Videux is an indispensable tool for stock videographers and people with large video libraries.

With effective organizational features, Videux can handle just about any video collection with ease, tagging them with keywords, ratings, and flags. Videux keeps track of model releases, license agreements, metadata, and much more, making it easy to see at a glance the state of your video library. This free upgrade is packed with new features and functionality: transcoding, proxies, keywords enhancements, in/out points, markers and more:

* Named markers and in/out points are now supported, and exported to Final Cut Pro X (Premiere Pro support coming soon). In/out points can now be used to trim clips. Markers can also be used to export still frames. In/out points and markers are shown on the player, and can be edited or deleted.

* Keywording is significantly enhanced with keyword suggestions and auto-complete. Keywords can now be renamed globally. In the filter view, keywords now can scroll and there is a new search function to find keywords. This allows Videux to support tens of thousands of keywords.

* Videux now supports transcoding of video clips, in batch. Transcoded clips are automatically added to the catalog. Major encodings and containers are supported, with more options on the way.

* Users can now make proxies for better playback of difficult to play clips. An example would be a 4K MPEG2; on slower computers this format can be choppy. By creating a proxy, playback is smooth at all speeds, making it easier to review clips.

* Trimming clips is now supported, and can operate on many sections of multiple clips. Trimmed clips are added to the catalog
* Extracting still frames (JPG or PNG) is supported, in batch
* A major database optimization means faster response when dealing with large catalogs
* Added ‘add keyword’ shortcut and menu item
* More file types supported
* Like all of our new versions, this upgrade is free to existing customers

* Videux now supports transcoding of video clips, in batch. Transcoded clips are automatically added to the catalog. Major encodings and containers are supported, with more options on the way.

* Users can now make proxies for better playback of difficult to play clips. An example would be a 4K MPEG2; on slower computers this format can be choppy. By creating a proxy, playback is smooth at all speeds, making it easier to review clips.

* Trimming clips is now supported, and can operate on many sections of multiple clips. Trimmed clips are added to the catalog
* Extracting still frames (JPG or PNG) is supported, in batch
* A major database optimization means faster response when dealing with large catalogs
* Added ‘add keyword’ shortcut and menu item
* More file types supported
* Like all of our new versions, this upgrade is free to existing customers

“If you’ve ever used Adobe’s Lightroom for stills, Videux offers similar functionality for video files: you can ingest and catalogue your footage, assigning star ratings and keyword metadata to make sure it’s searchable (and crucially, findable) in the future.” – Elliott Smith; News Shooter

Live Running Simulator: Bringing Competitive Edge to Running Routines

No Comments

Riga, Latvia – Intelligent Design SIA, a small studio located in Europe, today is pleased to announce the release of Live Running Simulator 1.0, its unique mobile application for iOS and Android devices. Live Running Simulator enables runners to race against other runners from various parts of the world, in real-time. The app optimizes technologies such as GPS and augmented reality to give runners an option to compete either with the CPU or with other runners, in different race categories (such as 400m, 800m, 1,500m and so on).

Live Running Simulator offers several other features that make it interesting and convenient for the users. For instance, the audio updates notify users about change in position and approaching opponents during a race. Users can select individual, single or tournament run modes and also opt for difficulty levels. There is also an option of watching highlight replays and a possibility to examine a graph of changed positions.

To make the user experience even more realistic, the app allows runners to create personalized 3D avatars. An avatar will run at the same speed as the user in the real world. The app serves to aid to several joggers and marathon runners who can now look forward to watching their personalized avatars running against avatars of other runners from across the world:

* Race with other runners on a real-time basis, or with the CPU
* Select individual run mode, single run mode or tournament mode
* Participate in any of the six races: 400m, 800m, 1,500m, 3,000m, 5,000m, or 10,000m
* Opt for level of difficulty: amateur, semi-pro, or pro
* Personalization options for 3D avatar
* Progress registration
* Audio updates during race
* Highlight replays and position graph
* Invite Facebook friends to inner circle competition

This studio’s mission is to develop mobile applications that do not simply entertain or kill time, but help users grow and fulfil their mental and/or physical potential. “We designed Live Running Simulator app so that more and more people adopt running as a routine exercise to stay fit and healthy, and enjoy competing with other runners from far corners of the world,” explained Roberts Austrums, board member of Intelligent Design SIA. “We also realised that many people find running alone unexciting, coupled with the fact that human mind responds better to competition, they decided to build an app that gives runners a real-life experience of racing with other runners. With Live Running Simulator app, one can compete with the virtual running community, and track his or her best time for each distance, as well as, compare their best time and medals earned with others. This app is ideal for maintaining good health, lose weight and a spark to daily workout regimes.”

Device Requirements for iPhone:
* System: Requires iOS 7.0 or later
* Size: 255 MB

Device Requirements for Android:
* System: 4.0.3. and up

Pricing and Availability:
Live Running Simulator App is currently available for Free (with in app purchases) on the App Store in the Health & Fitness category and also available for Free (with in app purchases) on the Google Play Store in the Health & Fitness category.
