Dungeons 3 brings its evil ways to Mac App Store

No Comments

Hamburg, Germany – Unicorns, valiant knights and other benevolent fantasy creatures beware! Kalypso Media and the Absolute Evil are cackling to themselves in wicked anticipation as gloriously evil dungeon sim sequel Dungeons 3 is out now worldwide on the Mac App Store.

The Dungeon Lord has returned once more, and this time is bringing all his dark forces together to offer gamers everywhere the biggest and best Dungeons experience yet. With a huge roster of units and rooms to build in your underground lair, co-op support for all game modes, re-worked overworld mechanics and a range of improvements to the multiplayer experience, Dungeons 3 has everything an evil heart could desire as Mac gamers begin ‘evilfying’ the sickeningly colourful and fluffy fantasy overworld.

To celebrate the release of Dungeons 3 and the Dungeon Lord’s inevitable victory over the forces of good, the busy Snots at Kalypso Media are pleased to reveal the game’s slap-happy launch trailer, fittingly dubbed “Classical Beats”, which they hope will encourage gamers everywhere to employ some casual violence towards their minions in their quest for infamy.

In Dungeons 3, the Dungeon Lord has successfully united the forces of evil and established the roots of his dark empire, leading him to the next step in his diabolical quest: expansion! Through enticing the dark elf priestess Thalya from the fluffy clutches of the surface world to become his chief lieutenant, the Dungeon Lord has found a way to direct his campaign of conquest from the confines of his underground lair. With Thalya on the front line, and the united forces of evil to support her, players will have to use every trick in the book to best those do-gooders of the overworld, once and for all!

Unleash your dark side by creating a unique underground dungeon from a huge array of rooms, traps and structures. Raise the most terrifying army the world has ever seen, by choosing from despicable creatures such as orcs, succubae, zombies and much, much more. Then, once you have built your forces, emerge from the darkness and guide your army to the light of the overworld, where you will corrupt the land and dispatch anything even vaguely heroic, cute or unicorn-shaped. And in a first for the Dungeons series, experience randomly generated levels, so that no two sessions are alike, never-ending fun for any evil conqueror!

* The dungeon manager you’ve been waiting for: Dungeons 3 is the biggest, best, and evil-est dungeon sim yet, topped off with a fully reworked overworld RTS mode
* Under new management: Command the united forces of evil under the guidance of new character Thalya and lead them to victory
* Size does matter: Extensive single player campaign with 20 missions and more than 20 hours of playtime, randomly generated levels, a brand-new co-op mode for two players, more rooms, and more unique abilities
* Speak no evil: The fan-favourite Dungeons narrator is back with his unmistakable voice, continuing the Dungeons legacy in the best way possible

Device Requirements:
* OS X 10.11 or later
* 64-bit processor
* 3.63 GB

Pricing and Availability:

MacX Video Converter Brings 4K with Fastest Speed and Intact Quality

No Comments

Chengdu, China – MacXDVD Software continues to prove itself a technology pioneer with MacX Video Converter Pro V6.2. This milestone upgrade totes an unprecedented integration of two killer features – 4K upscaling and auto copy tech. The 4K upscaling converts videos from HD 1080P, 720P or SD resolutions into pin-sharp 2K/4K and turns any video into 4K format HEVC H.265, while the auto copy moves the core data from format to format with untouched quality and a mind-bogglingly 10X faster conversion performance.

It’s estimated that 4K will be labeled on more than a third of the global TVs by the end of this year. But 4k content from Netflix, Amazon, and Sony is de facto rather limited, yet with higher price tag. While 4k videos are still suffering from fairly low uptake, MacXDVD is already on to fill the content gap with MacX Video Converter Pro V6.2, letting users dive into an endless buffet of the video future – 4K resolution.

* Everything can be 4K:
MacX Video Converter Pro is the world’s first expert 4k video converter to losslessly downscale videos from UHD/QHD to HD/SD to fit older devices. It now adds support to go from lower resolutions to higher 2K and 4K as part of a bigger push into ultra HD resolution world. The groundbreaking 2K/4K upscale technology automatically adds the perceived details to the incoming HD 1080P, 720P, or SD 360P videos to make everything look jaw-droppingly as sharp as the 4k image.

Meanwhile, the “future-proof” HEVC H.265 codec is now extended from MKV to MP4 to better handle 4K and even 8K (8192X4320). This move addresses the long-term 4k playback incompatibility on various iDevices or Android mobiles. More importantly, the HEVC encoder presents a bit reduction of 64% and truly stunning image quality when compared to 4k videos encoded with other tools in older formats and codecs (AVC/H.264).

* Faster than faster – let’s expect miracles:
Improving the output quality is the big priority in this upgrade, and the 4K upscaling is just a welcome first step. Another breakthrough named Auto Copy allows the video quality and converting speed to go hand in hand. This new tech ensures a lossless process, which simply takes the video and audio streams from the input format and puts them into the target file when the same codec is detected (like converting MKV h.264 to MP4 h.264).

While the new “copy-and-paste” tech eliminates every possibility of quality loss with re-encoding, it means greater significance in speed. Previously, MacX Video Converter Pro is the world’s speed record holder thanks to its pioneering use of QSV hardware acceleration tech, which leaves other competitors on the market in the dust with a 5x faster performance. Now, the addition of Auto Copy tech sets a new benchmark for the fastest video converter. According to the internal test, a same 4k video can be converted in around 1 minute with auto copy enabled, while the normal conversion takes 14 minutes! That’s 10x faster!

Other highlights of the upgrade:
* Auto convert videos shot in different angles to fit TVs, phones, and tablets in the most natural way
* The transcode core is improved to further enhance the overall software reliability and compatibility

Pricing and Availability:
The enhanced 4K video converter, normally priced at $59.95 (USD), is now given away for free during the Thanksgiving holiday. Free download and enjoy the stunning new features at MacXDVD official Thanksgiving Giveaway page. Plus, flexible toolkits are available at steep discounts, like the No.1 fast DVD ripper and drag-and-drop iPhone manager.

DEVONthink To Go 2.4 updated for iPhone X, adds PDF and sheet editors

No Comments

Coeur d’Alene, Idaho – DEVONtechnologies updates its mobile document and information manager DEVONthink To Go for the iPhone X and adds new options for editing PDF and tables. The Info sheet can change flags and labels for more than one document at once, e.g., for quickly marking multiple items as read. Version 2.4 captures office documents from web pages and allows to queue multiple databases for importing from sync stores. It uses clipboard content for new documents now only on demand and comes with more reliable Files app support. The update improves the overall performance, too, and fixes a number of bugs and glitches. It’s free and recommended for all users.

DEVONthink To Go is DEVONtechnologies’ document and information management solution for iOS. Serving as repository for a large variety of data types it lets users keep their important documents with them at all times. It offers a rich set of organizing features as well as built-in viewers and editors for many file formats. Document provider and file provider extensions make documents available in other apps, and an encrypted synchronization keeps all data in sync with other iOS devices as well as with its Mac counterpart, DEVONthink, without compromizing the user’s privacy.

Use DEVONthink To Go to put all your text files, PDFs, notes, images, and bookmarks into your pocket and have them at hand even when you are not connected to your office network or the internet.

* Take your documents with you
* Organize your data on the go
* Use super-fast full text search
* Sync locally, via WebDAV, or Dropbox

What’s new in DEVONthink To Go 2.4:
Besides adjusting its interface for the iPhone X, version 2.4 extends its document editing capabilities and a new editor for editing table-like data. It’s now possible to move, duplicate, rotate, and delete PDF pages as well as to insert new empty pages into a document. The sheet editor allows creating and editing sheets containing tabular data. Earlier versions of DEVONthink To Go only displayed sheets synchronized from a Mac. Sheets are stored as portable plain text CSV (comma-separated values) files.

The Info popover for groups and documents is now able to work with multiple selected items at once. This allows users to quickly mark, e.g., multiple items as read, flagged, or locked. Clip to DEVONthink captures also office documents from web pages now, and the assistant uses the clipboard content for new documents only on demand. Version 2.4 colors the locked icon for better visibility , sorts databases case-independently, and makes the Unread smart group more useful by marking documents not immediately as read when they’re opened.

PDF is the no. 1 document format for many of our users. The new PDF editing capabilities of version 2.4 let them delete unnecessary pages, adjust the page order of, e.g., scanned documents, or even insert empty pages for hand-written notes or annotations. And for all table-like data from address lists to scientific data there are CSV tables that can now be edited inside DEVONthink To Go. This is what our users know from the Mac and rightfully expect so also on iOS,” comments Eric Bohnisch-Volkmann, President of DEVONtechnologies.

On the synchronization side DEVONthink To Go 2.4 lets users queue multiple databases for importing from sync stores at the same time. This greatly speeds up configuring DEVONthink To Go with more than one database on a new device. When downloading content it now also uses all available sync locations, merges changes more efficiently, and speeds up the sometimes necessary automatic sync store optimization.

Finally, the update improves Files app support as well as the overall performance and responsiveness of the app itself. It’s free and highly recommended for all users.

Device requirements:
* iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
* Requires iOS 9.1 or later
* 130 MB

Pricing and Availability:
DEVONthink To Go 2.4 is available world-wide for $14.99 USD (or the equivalent amount in other currencies) through the iOS App Store in the Productivity category. Some features require a one-time in-app purchase. Customers find more information about our apps on the DEVONtechnologies website. Eric Bohnisch-Volkmann also posts news, opinions, previews, and public betas in his blog Devonian Times.

New site focuses on Virtual Reality and 360 video on the Mac

No Comments

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania – A video editor who was frustrated by the lack of a single source for information on the state of virtual reality and 360 video on the Mac, has created the website he couldn’t find elsewhere. Ryan Ritchey, a video producer of 17 years, recently launched VR on Mac as a single stop for news, reviews, and how-to’s about creating and experiencing VR/360 on the Mac.

“I’ve been using the Mac for nearly 20 years, so I was thrilled when Apple announced that High Sierra would support virtual reality. However, four months later, it’s hard to find any information specific to working on the Mac to create this content. And finding opportunities to experience VR content on the Mac can be even more challenging,” Ritchey said.

Ritchey is no stranger to creating a Mac-specific website: In 2007, he launched The Digital Lifestyle, which was a blog and video channel dedicated to Apple news. As Apple news went more mainstream, Ritchey became more involved with video production, which eventually led to virtual reality and 360 video projects.

“It was so frustrating to find some great sites for general VR info, but there wasn’t anything speaking to the unique challenges and opportunities on the Mac. My wife got so tired of me complaining about the lack of a website for that kind of information, that she said I should make the kind of website I was looking for, so that’s how was born,” Ritchey said.

The site will include updates on the state of tools like Unreal Engine and Unity for creating VR experiences, as well as 360 video editing with Final Cut Pro X, Adobe Premiere, and others. The site will also feature hardware reviews of 360 cameras and other gear, and reviews on current and upcoming VR/360 experiences coming to the Mac.

Baby Monitor 3G major update with low light mode and skin tone support

No Comments

Prague, Czech Republic – TappyTaps today is proud to announce the release of Baby Monitor 3G, a new version of the highly popular parenting app for iOS and Android. Baby Monitor 3G is for parents who want to stay in touch with their children, even when the little ones are sleeping. It’s not that long ago that Apple came up with a skin tone variety of their emojis. Since then, social networks, apps, and chatting apps have been trying to keep up and provide their users an option to choose the color of their emojis.

Since our users are from all over the world, we worked really hard to provide this new feature at its best, as we believe that unity is in diversity. We are happy to introduce the newest Baby Monitor 3G feature providing a skin tone scale to let you set a color of your baby on both Parent and Baby Station.

The Skin Tone Variations:
Throughout the process of bringing this new feature to life, our sketches and designs have changed multiple times; however, one thing stayed the same since the very beginning – the intention to build up this feature not on different races or ethnicity, but on different skin tones instead. Therefore all of our variations are based on the Fitzpatrick scale. Altogether, we come up with six different skin tone variations, from very pale to pigmented dark brown for both girls and boys.

Low Light Mode:
Another new and highly requested feature for our app is a low light mode. With a special camera setting on the Baby Station, you will now be able to see your baby even in a very bad lightning in the baby’s room. This feature comes handy during the evening and at night when the room is dark, and you don’t want to wake your baby up.

iPhone X:
Whether you’re a proud owner of the newest iPhone X or you still consider getting yourself one, Baby Monitor 3G is fully adapted and prepared for running on this newest device. We adjusted the app’s design and functionality so you can enjoy the full experience of this designer’s piece.

Video and Low Volume Alert:
As usual, we fixed multiple minor errors that occurred in the app since the last update. We also improved the quality of the video as well as the transmission, so each monitoring it’s more stable.

In addition to the video, we added a new alert that appears when the volume on the Baby Station is set too low. It happened multiple times to our users that they didn’t realize the volume on their Baby Station device has been set too low or turned off completely. Their baby then couldn’t hear the parents when they used the talk-to-baby feature or played the lullabies.

Key new features:
* Skin tone variations – the skin tone variability provides a bigger diversity and choice to users from all over the world
* Low Light Mode – enables to see the baby even in a room with a very poor lighting
* iPhone X – app’s design and functionality have been adjusted for the newest Apple device

About Baby Monitor 3G:
Baby Monitor 3G is the most popular cross-platform video baby monitoring application. It is available for iOS (iPhone and iPad, Apple TV, Apple Watch), macOS (Macs and MacBooks) and Android operating system (Phone, Tablet, Android TV and Android Smart Watch), compatible in any combination, and is used by over one million parents worldwide. It has many unique features, such as HD video support, Activity Log, Multiparent support, Lullabies, Night Mode and much more.

No Comments

Dublin, Ireland – CleverBooks today is proud to announce the release of Augmented Reality (AR) based Geometry App for Primary Education for iOS and Android devices.

It is an innovative educational tool used as a supplementary aid to any existing primary math curriculum for schools around the world to support children age 7-11 y.o. in their learning process, help them develop cognitive and critical thinking.

CleverBooks Geometry features 3D models with Augmented Reality (AR) for main geometric shapes.

The app is aimed at primary school children, and can be used in the classroom or at home environment by individual students. It’s easily launched on a tablet or mobile phone (based on Android or Apple) through a collection of printouts/ and flash cards set/workbook from CleverBooks. Teachers can also connect a projector to their mobile device and project the shapes on a whiteboard, making their math lessons for K-12 classroom more interactive and dynamic.
