CARROT Launches Public Offering on Netcapital

No Comments

Royal Oak, Michigan – CARROT pass, LLC today announced a public stock offering through the Netcapital online crowdfunding platform. CARROT’s innovative health and wellness program, which features the “CARROT Wellness” mobile app, uses a gamified approach and instant gratification to deliver unrivaled engagement and results in motivating people to lead more active lives.

“There’s nothing like CARROT in the marketplace today. We’re a mobile gaming company, and we’ve used that experience and expertise to create a ‘gamified’ program that truly motivates even the most sedentary employee,” said CARROT founder and CEO Michael Antaran.

CARROT’s patent-pending, “set-it-and-forget-it” program uses personalized goals, generated daily by CARROT’s proprietary algorithm, and instant gratification to motivate employees on an individual basis. This – and its simple, low-cost pricing – makes CARROT an attractive corporate wellness program for companies of all sizes. CARROT leverages the viral advantages of mobile technology to quickly onboard small employers while offering an affordable, scalable solution for the world’s largest corporations.

Introduced in January 2016, CARROT is already generating revenue with more than 15 clients including Henry Ford Health System, Oakland University, the United Auto Workers International, Macomb County Government and Takeda Pharmaceuticals. Those customers currently offer the CARROT Wellness program to 60,000-plus paid participants in the United States, Canada, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, Austria, Finland, the Netherlands, and several other countries.

“We’re viewed as disruptive in the industry,” Antaran said. “But when your wellness program allows you to earn gift cards instantly for meeting personalized goals, while at the same time compete in activity challenges and contests like fantasy football, I suppose ‘disruptive’ is an appropriate label – and it’s one we embrace.”

CARROT has raised money through traditional funding channels, but Antaran wanted to be sure that everyone had a chance to share in the success of the company. This desire led to the decision to offer stock on the Netcapital platform. Investors on Netcapital can purchase equity in CARROT Pass LLC for as little as $4.90 (USD).

Math Classroom Challenge 1.20 – Enhanced Math Panels & Rocket

No Comments

Barcelona, Spain – Titan Deep Space Company today is pleased to inform that Math Classroom Challenge (MCC) has been updated to version 1.20. MCC, the kids version of Math Combat Challenge, is now available for iPhone and iPad, and iPod touch. Developed with Metal API, MCC is an educational and interactive game that generates random math exercises in an safe 3D environment for children.

New features:
This new version has some new elements. Specifically:

The new button that allows to generate random math dynamic panels manually can be pushed twice. Just touch the button and a random problem will appear as usual. Throw water to the right solution with your water hose. If you don’t push the button, random math problems will generate at random intervals. Now, if you push the button again while the panel is active, the dynamic math panel will be placed in front of the player, so the player can interact with it easily, and there is no need to move the player to find the panel. This feature will be very appreciated by kids that don’t want to move if they don’t want to. The player can use or not this new feature, so playing as usual is still possible. The difficulty of the game changes by using or not this new feature.

Another feature is “The Rocket”. Whenever three math dynamic panels are solved, a rocket will fly across the stage. While the rocket is flying, new points gained will be multiplied by two. This will improve the game by adding a new element to obtain more points. Solving the maximum dynamic math problems while the rocket is flying will be a challenge for kids. Again, this is a feature that can be used only if the player wants to.

* Static panels are not changed. Benny the pet will still mark the right numbers to solve the static panels with his ray.
* Some minor enhancements and tweaks, mainly with the Metal API.
* Remember you can dynamically configure the view movement in the config panel, if it is too slow or fast for you.
* Thank you for your feedback, and have a nice Math Day!

About Math Classroom Challenge:
Achieving an interest in mathematics that reaches all ages is a primary goal for us. To that end, the company has developed a version of Math Combat Challenge specially designed for the little ones: Math Classroom Challenge for kids. This version has no enemies, and no weapons. Instead, the player throws water with a water hose to the numbers, solving the static and dynamic random panels, from sums to equations.

Math for the little ones:
Math Classroom Challenge is designed especially at children aged five to twelve, although the game can of course be configured to be a challenge at any age. We intend to create several modules with different possibilities and mathematical challenges, and this first module is specially inspired by Christmas.

With the help of Benny the puppy, the youngest will be able to learn mathematics, playing with the help of a tutor, or they will learn mathematics by themselves from a certain age. The game allows you to set the type of operations to solve, and the maximum number of errors, or an unlimited number of errors. You can also set the maximum time, up to a maximum of fifteen minutes. The entire environment is designed, both visually and in sound and music, to be accessible for all ages, even the youngest.

Learn the numbers while playing:
The game can also be used for children to learn to recognize the numbers that fly around the stage, without even having to solve the exercises if they don’t want to. The enemies of the original game have been eliminated, and the weapons have been replaced by a water hose, with which the player will throw water at the numbers to solve the static panels, or else to the correct solution in the dynamic panels. But the most important thing is to introduce young people to the world of mathematics in a fun and entertaining way.

“The Math Classroom Challenge is available for iOS (iPhone/iPad), and we are considering publishing it for Windows and Mac if players are interested,” explained Ignacio Campomanes, developer at Titan Deep Space Company. “We started with mobile devices because these kinds of games can then take you everywhere, and enjoy mathematics anywhere. This environment is already included as a free scenario in Math Combat Challenge for Windows and Mac, so if you own that game, you have Math Classroom Challenge for these operating systems. Mathematics for everyone, and also for the little ones.”

Device Requirements:
* iPhone 5s or later and iPod touch (6th generation)
* iPad Pro (2nd generation) or later
* Requires iOS 9.0 or later
* 736 MB

Pricing and Availability:
Math Classroom Challenge 1.20 is only $0.99 USD (with no additional purchases or on-screen advertising) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Games category. For more information, please contact Ignacio Campomanes.

Package Central for Adobe InDesign Now Supports IDML File Processing

No Comments

Toronto (ON) Canada – Zevrix Solutions today announces Package Central 1.11, a maintenance update to its document packaging automation solution for Adobe InDesign. Originally developed for a major publisher in the United States, the software automates InDesign packaging by processing files from watched hot folders. Package Central offloads file packaging to a central system leaving operator workstations free from the document collection process.

The new version lets users process InDesign Markup Language (IDML) files which enable backwards compatibility with older InDesign versions. IDML files provide an interchangeable format for InDesign documents, as well as a way for third-party tools to modify and assemble InDesign files. Users now can submit IDML files to Package Central hot folders just like the regular InDesign documents.

Under Package Central workflow, production artists, prepress operators and designers simply submit files to watched hot folders that reside on a network. The software automatically collects InDesign files along with their fonts and links freeing user’s time for important tasks such as design and layout. Operator workstations will never again be tied up by the packaging process.

Package Central runs on a dedicated Mac station and watches hot folders for incoming InDesign files. The software performs all its tasks automatically and can run absolutely unattended. It offers the following key features and benefits:

* Automatically collect InDesign files from hot folders
* Update modified links automatically
* Create PDF and IDML files on the fly
* Automatic email notifications of process stages and errors
* Compose variable folder names
* Serves unlimited users on a network
* Detailed processing history

Pricing and Availability
Package Central can be purchased for $149.95 (USD) from Zevrix website as well as from authorized resellers. Trial is also available for download. The update is free for registered users. Package Central requires macOS 10.7-10.13 and Adobe InDesign CS5-CC 2018.

Find Them All: My Pets for iOS – Interactive Educational App

No Comments

Paris, France – Knbmedia today is pleased to introduce Find Them All: My Pets for iOS, the fourth in their series of “Find Them All” Educational apps for kids 2 – 8. A guided introduction, entirely spoken in 8 languages, to 48 different pets. The 100% interactive app features 7 different activities, including: Match the Pet, Win an Animated Card, Take a Photo, Find the Pet in the Dark, Make a Jigsaw Puzzle from a Photo, Play the Quiz and Watch Videos. My Pets also allows kids to arrange all the cards they win in a virtual album, keep a photo album of all the photos they take, and print, fold, cut out and paste their own paper albums.

On launch in landscape orientation, kids are greeted by the Sun, smiling and speaking from the top left corner of the screen. He acts as a friendly guide through every activity, and provides positive reinforcement each time the child makes a correct selection. The first activity, Match the Pet, challenges kids to scroll left or right and find the full size animal that matches the thumbnail beside the Sun. Only one pet is present each time the child looks, but it can be easily overlooked amidst the terrain and plant life of its natural habitat. Matching and touching the animal, kids are rewarded with an animated playing card showing a close-up illustration and announcing the correct pronunciation of the species in 8 languages.

Having collected at least 12 playing cards, kids win their own blue camera with zoom lens. Using this camera, they can frame and photograph any pet from far left to far right. Taking a photo of any animal unlocks a brief description, which can be heard aloud. In the Find the Pets in the Dark activity, players try to touch as many animals as possible before night falls. Once it is dark, kids can use their flashlight to find the missing animals. Make a Jigsaw Puzzle from a Photo allows children to take a photo and then turn it into a jigsaw puzzle by shaking the iDevice (the more they shake, the more pieces). Puzzles can be easy or hard, from 4 to 42 pieces. The Play the Photo Quiz activity asks kids to find any animal with a question mark superimposed on it. Touching it brings up an interactive quiz, where kids can show off all they have learned. Lastly, players look for a kid with a camera and win a video.

* Contents: 48 animals to discover.
* Entirely spoken: children are autonomous, even the youngest ones.
* Multi-lingual: the names of the animals are available in height languages. You can choose to change the language in which the game is played.
* Educational: discover animals through photos, sound, videos and audio commentary.
* Adapted to each age group: numerous activities during short games with difficulty levels adapted to the child.
* Safe: No adverts, no external links and a special parents’ zone.
* Multi-user: each child can have their games with their settings.
* Printable booklet: albums can be printed and assembled through folding.

App Tamer 2.3.4 can quit idle apps, improves control of CPU usage

No Comments

Denver, Colorado – St. Clair Software is pleased to announce the availability of a free update to its App Tamer utility for macOS. App Tamer 2.3.4 features a new option to quit idle applications and improves its control of applications’ CPU usage.

The changes in version 2.3.4 include:
* App Tamer can now be set to quit applications after they’ve been idle in the background for a certain amount of time
* Improved management of CPU usage for apps that have multiple sub-processes, like web browsers and Spotlight
* When you turn on Time Machine Acceleration, App Tamer warns you if you have settings that are at cross purposes
* App Tamer’s own CPU usage has been reduced

More about App Tamer:
Some Mac applications, especially web browsers, continue running tasks or animations even when they’re supposed to be idle in the background. This can consume valuable processing power, reducing battery life and producing heat that increases fan noise. App Tamer’s unique AutoStop capability automatically slows down or pauses these applications when you switch away from them, and then restarts them when you click back to them. This frees your CPU and reduces power consumption.

App Tamer comes pre-configured to automatically manage Safari, Firefox, Chrome, Spotlight, Time Machine, Word and many other apps when they’re in the background. And customizing it for other applications is just a mouse click away.

Pricing and Availability:
App Tamer will operate on any Macintosh running macOS 10.8 or higher, and is free to try for 15 days. A license to continue using it after the trial period is $14.95 (USD). This update is free for users who purchased App Tamer 2.x or bought App Tamer 1.x after July 1, 2013. For those that purchased a license before that date, the upgrade is $7.95 (USD).

Against these high expectations, these award-winning business apps were distinguished by their ability to delight users.”

With all iOS business apps eligible and under consideration, winners were selected based on a combination of quantitative metrics and qualitative factors. The analytical evaluation component focused on app review scores submitted over the course of 2017 to measure user engagement. The qualitative component – benefiting from the Tabby Awards expertise in judging app awards since 2012 – focused on user interface, design, and innovation.

Faber Acoustical Releases SignalScope X for iOS as a Free Download

No Comments

Lehi, Utah – Faber Acoustical’s SignalScope X brings powerful new tools for dynamic signal analysis and data acquisition to iOS and replaces all the functionality currently found in SignalScope Pro, SignalSuite, IOScope, and RoomScope with subscription-based tool sets. For the first time ever in an iOS app from Faber Acoustical, SignalScope X may be downloaded for free. The user can then start a 7-day free trial of the Pro Tool Set Subscription. Without a subscription, the user is free to continue to use SignalScope X’s multi-channel Oscilloscope tool. SignalScope X is available for download on the App Store, now.

The original SignalScope and SignalSuite for iPhone were available for download on the opening day of the iPhone App Store. Now, after nearly 10 years of iOS development, SignalScope X offers a clearer expression of Faber’s vision for the future of acoustics-related signal analysis, data acquisition, and measurement on mobile devices.

The most powerful addition to SignalScope X is the new MultiTool. SignalScope X’s MultiTool acts as a project manager and host for the other tools in SignalScope X. On iPhone, up to 2 other tools (subtools) may be added to the MultiTool at one time. iPad models support up to 4 subtools, except for iPad Pro models with 10.5-inch or larger displays, which support up to 6. Besides the obvious benefit of being able to see and interact with multiple subtools, simultaneously, the MultiTool can save its current subtool configuration under a user-defined name.

Any of the saved configurations can then be selected for immediate application in the MultiTool. This allows for different configurations to be saved for different projects or jobs. For example, one configuration might include an Oscope and FFT Analyzer and another might include an Octave Analyzer and a Data Recorder. On iPad, one configuration might include all 4. Even when using just a single subtool, the MultiTool allows multiple configurations of that tool (e.g. a unique configuration of the Dual FFT Analyzer for each of several different measurement types) to be saved and recalled at will.

SignalScope X’s new Data Recorder tool supports real-time continuous streaming of up to 8 channels to an audio file. Along with the audio file, SignalScope X can save an “info” file, which contains metadata including date, time, location (if enabled), input channel details, and sensitivity calibration information. This metadata will also be embedded within the audio file, itself.

The new real-time XY Plotter allows the user to immediately visualize time, frequency, and amplitude relationships between two signals, or even create visually appealing images such as Lissajous curves.

Other significant features new to SignalScope X include optional background operation, independent/simultaneous operation of all tools, and independent input/output channel selection in each tool. It is also now possible to directly analyze the output of the signal generator in any of the real-time analysis tools. SignalScope X also makes it much easier to move data files in and out of the app via Files (iCloud Drive), Dropbox, or other apps on a user’s device that can load or export compatible files.

SignalScope X 10.0 offers in-app subscriptions for Basic, Advanced, and Pro tool sets that can automatically renew at monthly or annual intervals. Subscriptions give users access to updates, new features, and new tools within the subscribed tool set. Subscriptions also cover ongoing hardware support, such as periodically updated nominal microphone sensitivities for built-in microphones on Apple devices, updated nominal voltage sensitivities for select audio input devices, and automatic calibration for audio input devices that include built-in sensitivity information.

The Basic Tool Set includes the Oscope, FFT Analyzer, 2D Real-time Spectrogram, and XY Plotter tools. The Advanced Tool Set includes the basic tools as well as the 3D Real-time Spectrogram, Octave Analyzer, Level Meter, Data Recorder, and Stereo Signal Generator tools. The Pro Tool Set includes the basic and advanced tools, plus the Dual-channel System Analyzer (Dual FFT), Room Acoustics Analyzer, and MultiTool.

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
* Designed to take full advantage of the iPhone X’s 5.8″ screen
* Requires iOS 10.0 or later
* 30.5 MB

Pricing and Availability:
SignalScope X 10.0 is Free (with in-app subscriptions) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Productivity category. For more information, please contact Benjamin Faber. The existing SignalScope, SignalScope Pro, SignalSuite, IOScope, and RoomScope apps will receive maintenance updates and remain available for sale on the App Store for a limited time for the benefit of those who need access to their respective tools on iOS 8 and 9.

Empowering Community-Based App Officially Launches in iTunes

No Comments

Tampa, Florida – WishAlerts, the m-commerce app that grants “wishes” made by its users, expanded into the US market by officially launching today in the iTunes App store. WishAlerts links communities by allowing users in the same geographical area to connect with others to share information about common interests such as favorite topics, events, groups, or about local businesses.

The app lets users join or create local interest groups, find or host events, get reviews about local businesses, and make wishes. For example, to find a romantic restaurant for an upcoming anniversary, the user enters their wish, and the distance around them that they want information from and, within seconds, users receive unique offers from nearby businesses. Or if a user just needs information about a particular topic of interest, they can post a new question and nearby users will respond.

“Mobile users expect a personalized experience that is location relevant and tailored to their individual needs. Thanks to AI, WishAlerts is able to provide an intuitive, assistive experience that’s unique to each user. Users can also be locally-owned businesses, says Founder and CEO Shane Amyx. “This is a great way to reignite the economies of small towns on a community by community basis.”

WishAlerts is geo-location based, so it automatically alerts users with personalized, locally-relevant information wherever they go so they’ll always be in the know. The more a user makes wishes in the app, the better tailored the suggestions become as WishAlerts’ artificial intelligence algorithms learn to provide a personalized mobile experience.

“We believe that the ability to connect users directly with local businesses or with other like-minded people is the key to reconnecting folks with their communities and to creating more meaningful relationships, while at the same time, supporting local artisans and small businesses,” said Shane Amyx. “This approach empowers the local community and takes us back to our roots, when life was more simple and people helped one another.”

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
* Requires iOS 9.1 or later
* 77.9 MB

Pricing and Availability:
WishAlerts 2.4 is Free for users who sign up by 1-31-18, and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Lifestyle category. WishAlerts ships in two versions: One for small businesses and one for consumers. Consumers can add wishes, and businesses can provide them, thereby bridging the gap between local supply and demand.
