Station 1.5 – Multilevel Dock for macOS

No Comments

Plymouth, Minnesota – True North Software today is very proud to announce the release of Station 1.5, the company’s multilevel (hierarchical) launcher for macOS. Station promotes a more natural organization of applications and documents into folders. With nested folders, you can arrange items in Station in a way that fits your workflow with an uncluttered look and feel. Scalability is greatly increased through logical groupings thus increasing the sheer number of items that can be added to Station without having to shrink the launcher size.

Productivity is increased because related items can be grouped together into a single folder. For example, one folder can contain work related items and another folder gaming items. Another useful feature of Station is the ability to launch, all at once, the items in a launch folder. This is useful when switching between tasks like business and spreadsheets to graphics work. With ten levels of folders available, enough space is provided to spread out even the most diverse set of applications and documents.

What’s New for Version 1.5:
* You can lock Station to a specific screen.
* In the preferences you can specify if you want Station to center a new panel over the originating folder item.
* Name parsing for external items has been enhanced to better reflect the names displayed in the Finder (showing or hiding hidden file extensions).

Station Features:
* Up to ten levels of folders can be shown
* The size of the icons can range from 24 to 64 points
* An alias folder can be created from any existing folder
* Display panels can be justified to the left, center, or right
* Icons can be assigned to folders to give them a more distinctive feel
* All applications and documents in a folder can be launched all at once
* Station can be displayed on the left, right or bottom side of the screen
* Folders automatically open after a short delay when you drag items over them
* Station can be displayed statically (always shown) or automatically hidden when not needed
* The display name of a folder can be renamed (e.g. “untitled” to “Graphics”)
* Scrollbar support for launch panels that exceed screen dimensions
* Embedded open folder icon can now be either blue or red
* Auto collapse of folders after launch of an item
* Select any color for the panel background color
* You can automatically populate all folder icons
* Station will automatically launch at login
* Fullscreen and multiscreen support

System Requirements:
* Requires macOS 10.11 or higher
* 64-bit processor
* 22.1 MB

Pricing and Availability:
Station 1.5 is priced at $14.99 (USD) and is available through the Mac App Store in the Productivity category. A demo version is available from the True North Website. For more information, please contact Brendan Murphy.

Joyoshare Introduces HEIC Converter – Convert iOS 11 HEIC to JPG, PNG

No Comments

Hong Kong – Joyoshare Software is proud to announce the launch of its new multimedia member called HEIC Converter for Mac with the strong ability to convert new iOS 11 images from HEIC/HEIF format to more popular photo formats, such as JPEG, PNG, GIF, TIFF, etc. so that anyone could be able to transfer and view HEIC photos on any computer and mobile device with ease.

HEIC, also known as HEIF (High Efficiency Image Format), is a new image format Apple created for the pictures captured by iOS 11 devices. It’s much superior to JPG as it keeps the same photo quality while saving half the file size. However, the problem was addressed by users of Windows and non-iOS devices, as well as Macs (except for macOS High Sierra) as they may find it’s impossible to view and manage HEIC photos on their devices. Oriented by such a growing demand on converting HEIC to JPG or PNG or other formats, Joyoshare HEIC Converter is here to rescue. With this smart yet powerful HEIC photo solution, converting HEIC to JPG, PNG and others could be a click away only.

As one of the best HEIC to JPG converter in the market, Joyoshare HEIC Converter comes with both Mac and Windows versions. Unlike other similar HEIC photo conversion tools, Joyoshare HEIC Converter not only supports converting iOS 11 HEIC to JPEG, but also converts HEIC images to PNG, GIF, TIFF, BMP and WEBP without making any damage to the original photo quality. It’s capable of converting HEIC to JPG, PNG, GIF, etc. in bulk, meaning you can convert as many HEIC photos as you like once. In addition, this smart app allows you to adjust output image quality in your own way, including changing resolution, aspect ratio, keeping EXIF metadata info, etc. Under the help of Joyoshare HEIC Converter, you can easily transfer and manage any HEIC/HEIF picture on any platform without limit.

“The advantage of Joyoshare HEIC Converter is that it almost covers all features that everyone needs when converting HEIC photos as it supports more output picture formats and funcionalities than any other competitor.” said Daniel, Joyoshare R&D team director. “Besides, superior to other online HEIC converters, Joyoshare HEIC Converter is supposed to be much safer as it keeps customers’ personal info in their local computer other than on iCloud.”

Thanks to the advanced encoding technique and well-designed interface, Joyoshare HEIC Converter is easy to operate for everyone. The whole HEIC to JPG conversion process by Joyoshare for hundreds of pictures could be accomplished just in a few clicks. Add the HEIC photos, set output format and preference, and then convert. All will be done instantly.

Pricing and Availability:
Joyoshare HEIC Converter (v1.0) is normally priced at $9.95 (USD) for a single license copy with 1 year free support and update. There are other license types available as well, including $19.95 for 2-5 PCs with lifetime free update and support, and $29.95 (USD) for unlimited use. Currently, Joyoshare HEIC Converter is offered with desktop-based converter compatible with Windows 10, 8.1, 8, 7, Vista, XP and macOS 10.13 Hig Sierra, 10.12 Sierra, 10.11, 10.10, 10.9 and 10.8.

WaterField Pre-launches the Atlas Executive Athletic Holdall

No Comments

San Francisco, California – WaterField Designs introduces the Atlas Executive Athletic Holdall, a sophisticated briefcase and athletic bag for fitness-minded professionals to transition seamlessly from office to gym. The handsome leather-trimmed waxed canvas or ballistic nylon carryall incorporates a padded MacBook compartment and organizational pockets for work essentials, a spacious chamber for clothes, and a collapsible, zippered space to separate shoes.

With its sleek aesthetic and uncluttered design, the Atlas is the only bag a professional needs to impress at a business meeting and to knock out a lunchtime training session. Pre-launch participants who order through December 31, receive a complimentary WaterField Duo Dopp Kit ($79).

“Many of us who commute to work and like to stay fit, carry both a briefcase and a gym bag every day, but I’d prefer to carry just one something to take from workout-to-work, and vice versa,” explained company owner, Gary Waterfield. “The work-gym bags available don’t have the internal organization I need, so we designed one that keeps the professional aesthetic of a briefcase, improves interior organization and expands functionality to carry athletic gear. We’re pre-launching now so people can start the new year off right.”

The Atlas Holdall combines the best features of a professional briefcase with a workout or overnight bag into one sleek design:

* A slim chamber, secured by dual waterproof zippers, serves as a briefcase. Inside, two built-in, padded sleeves protect a MacBook and an iPad, and additional pockets stow a power supply, cords, a pen or Apple Pencil, and other work necessities.

* Corner cut-outs on the laptop sleeve permit laptop charging while the device remains safely within.

* The TSA-friendly briefcase compartment opens flat, allowing the laptop to stay protected inside while passing through TSA screening.

* A cavernous compartment, secured by dual waterproof zippers, stores clothing for exercise or for an overnight trip.

* A discrete, zippered, pouch separates shoes from apparel and work items in an interior pocket that is accessed from the outside. It recedes when not in use to maximize space.

* An exterior zippered front pocket holds keys, wallet, tickets and other quick-access items. Inside that, a soft Ultrasuede(R) pocket protects an iPhone, and a key fob makes for easy retrieval after a vigorous workout.

* An open-topped side pocket stores a water bottle or other frequently-used belongings.

* Gold rip-stop lining lights up the bag’s interior for improved visibility.

* Three carry options ” dual leather-grip handles, a suspension shoulder strap, and a wheeled-suitcase handle pass-through for air travel ” add to the Atlas’ versatility.

* In either classic, sturdy black ballistic nylon or rugged, tan waxed canvas and premium full-grain leather accents, the Atlas looks as good with a suit as it does with workout clothes.

WaterField Designs is pre-launching the Atlas Executive Athletic Holdall now. Pre-orders received by December 31 will be rewarded with a complimentary WaterField Duo Dopp Kit ($79), and will ship by January 19.

Weight and Dimensions:
* Canvas 3.4 lbs. Ballistic 3.1 lbs
* 16 x 10 x 8.5 inches
* Meets most airline personal carry-on-item size requirements

Pricing and Availability:
The Atlas Executive Athletic Holdall is priced at $429 (USD) and available in Black ballistic nylon with black or chocolate full-grain leather details. Tan waxed canvas with full-grain, chocolate leather details. Available for pre-order now. Orders received by December 31 receive a WaterFieldl Duo Dopp Kit ($79). First Atlas production run ships January 19, 2018.

The Duo Dopp Kit is priced at $79 (USD) and available in Black ballistic nylon with black full-grain leather details or tan waxed canvas with chocolate leather details. Dimensions: 9.5 x 5 x 3.5 inches. Weight: 6.5 oz.

Zero Fun out now for iOS – Number Action Game

No Comments

London, England – Independent developer, James Bolton is proud to announce the release of Zero Fun 1.6, an update to his free-to-play number action game developed exclusively for iOS devices. Zero Fun challenges even the seasoned casual audience in this zen-like number tapping game, as equal measures of patience, memory and quick reactions are required to beat the devilishly hand-crafted levels.

The objective is to stop the countdowns as close to zero as you can and clear the target score to proceed to the next level. Low numbers award more points but don’t let the number reach zero as it will be game over. It’s not just about the ones and twos. What sets Zero Fun apart from match-3 titles or other number based games of a similar genre is the cheeky sets of numbers designed to trip you up.

Watch out for numbers that blink on and off or the super fast turbo number which counts down to zero in a flash. Don’t get fooled by the number which pauses for a second looking like it’s lagging behind and you must stay cool when a group of numbers all spawn in unison. Zero Fun? You decide.

“Zero Fun will stress you out more than your ex-girlfriend from high school!” NOEN – snappzilla

Zero Fun is designed to be accessible for any age with a minimalist design and it offers a one of a kind audio experience. Using a library of 19 different sounds the player experiences a unique soundtrack each time they tap on a number. This could be the first time a mobile game has featured this audio effect.

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
* Requires iOS 9.3 or later
* 62.3 MB

Pricing and Availability:
Zero Fun 1.6 is Free (with in-app purchases) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Games category. Purchase the 1.99 GBP Tier 2 IAP which remove ads and awards unlimited lives. For more information, please contact James Bolton.

Scientific Study Demonstrates App Series Greatly Improves Literacy

No Comments

Victoria, Canada – Pyxwise Software, the maker of the Simplex Spelling series of apps, has had its educational methodology validated by an academic study published in a special issue of the International Journal of Technology and Inclusive Education. The study revealed an average improvement of 1.9 grade levels among children who regularly used its iPad apps over an 18 week period.

A research study by Dr. Linda Chmiliar entitled “Improving the Spelling Skills of Students with Learning Disabilities using Apps on the iPad” followed two busy classrooms of students with learning difficulties in language arts. The 23 students completed the Schonell Spelling Test Form A at the beginning of the study to determine their starting equivalent grade level. The students then used the Simplex Spelling apps for 10-15 minutes a day, one to two days a week over an 18 week period. At the end of the study, the students were administered Schonell Spelling Test Form B to again determine their equivalent grade level.

The Schonell Spelling Test results indicated a very strong improvement in student spelling skills during the research study. The average increase in student spelling skills over the 18 weeks of the study was 1.9 grade levels, with the greatest student performance improvement reaching 4.4 grade levels.

The teacher involved in the study has been in special education for 14 years and “At the conclusion of this research study the teacher was very surprised at the spelling achievement of both her classes of students. She indicated that the results were “well above” what she would normally expect.”

The research study indicated that “Overall, it appears that this series of phonetically based spelling apps could be a very useful tool for teachers in inclusive classrooms who wish to successfully engage in differentiated spelling instruction for their students.”

In addition, the study revealed that “Students enjoyed using the apps and found them “cool” and “fun” to use. They were motivated to use the apps and engage in their weekly spelling practice. Students expressed interest in using the apps more, and several students indicated that they would be willing to practice their spelling at home for homework. This is a departure from pencil and paper spelling practice that students typically find boring and tedious.”
