The attraction version of HyperBowl debuted in the Sony Metreon in 1999 and is still available in venues such as Dave and Buster’s. The attraction game features a tall projection screen, 3D fantasy bowling lanes, and a real bowling ball acting as the controller.

After a year of development, HyperBowl 1.0 was released for the iPhone and iPod touch in December of 2009 with the first three HyperBowl lanes – Classic (an eerie otherworldly environment), Rome (art and aqueducts of ancient Rome) and Forest (an idyllic setting). Since then, the original arcade multiplayer mode (1-4 players) has been added along with support for the Scoreloop social gaming network.

Soon after the iPad was launched in April, HyperBowl 1.5 was released as a universal app with native support for the iPhone and iPad, including full-screen iPad support.

* Unique touch screen swiping controls that emulate the original bowling ball control
* Play up to four-person multiplayer in the arcade mode

PlanetOne 1.1

media_1276105007915.png

Independent game developer Paulson Apps today announces PlanetOne 1.1 for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices. Designed from the ground up for Apple devices, PlanetOne is a Retro Style, side-scrolling 2D video game that stars a little blue man. The man must run, jump, and roll his way through 22 action-packed and unique levels. Players must guide the little blue man as he searches for The Maya, the life-force of his planet, which was stolen by an evil being.

"I wanted to bring the characteristics of the classic platformers we all fell in love with to a new Iphone medium," said PlanetOne lead engineer and designer Jason Elbourne. "While there are plenty of games for the IPhone, I noticed a lack of Retro 2D side-scrolling action games with a traditional tiledmap look and classic controls . I decided to do something about that."

With cute, 2D characters and a retro style, PlanetOne brings classic "platformer" game play to your IPhone device. Players must guide the little blue man as he searches for The Maya, the life-force of his planet, which was stolen by an evil being. The planet has now been populated by a diverse ecosystem of robots and deadly lava, but perhaps more dangerous is Dr. Kular, the leader of a shadowy mega corporation who has stolen The Maya. Players who are capable enough to find The Maya may discover that not everything on PlanetOne is as it seems, with hidden passageways in many areas, leading to hidden Gems.

You don’t have to be a fashion student to enjoy Style Studio. The easy to use interface is simple enough for the younger user, but provides options to keep even the most experienced seamstress entertained. Users can choose from thousands of materials, prints, belts, buttons, zippers, bows, pockets and accessories that have been pre-loaded into the app, or upload your own graphics and photos from your device. Clothing can be tried out on any of the five models within the application, or designers can upload a photo of themselves or friends to try on the new fashions.

Once clothes have been designed, they can be showcased on fashion magazine mock-ups or turned into an entire fashion show. Designs can be shared with friends through Facebook, Twitter and Email integration into the app. Additional styles, materials and accessories can be purchased through the in-app store with more content being added all the time.

media_1276188263751.png

No Tie Software today announces AutoVerbal Talking Soundboard 1.0 for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices. AutoVerbal allows kids with Autism and people who are non-verbal to communicate using hundreds of picture buttons including buttons to speak your preprogrammed messages, plus type anything and it will be spoken using Text-To-Speech. Touch hundreds of picture buttons in over a dozen categories, scrolling down and across using an elegant, responsive soundboard.

Rochester, New York – No Tie Software today is pleased to announce the release and immediate availability of AutoVerbal Talking Soundboard 1.0 for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices. AutoVerbal allows kids with Autism and people who are non-verbal to communicate using hundreds of picture buttons including buttons to speak your preprogrammed messages, plus type anything and it will be spoken using Text-To-Speech.

AutoVerbal allows people who are non-verbal, whether that means kids with Autism or adults without the ability to speak, to communicate in three ways:

1) Touch hundreds of picture buttons in over a dozen categories, scrolling down and across using an elegant, responsive soundboard.

2) Customize several buttons to speak your preprogrammed messages (i.e. "My name is Steve" or "I live at 123 Main Street"). A caregiver could do the programming, making it easy for the user to "speak" frequently used phrases.

3) Users who are able to do so can type Anything and it will be spoken using Text-To-Speech

Without such an app, patients use devices costing $3,000 to $8,000. Now, for a fraction of that, everyone can afford to communicate. Early users suggest that AutoVerbal should be priced anywhere from $30 to $100, but to reach a large audience, introductory pricing is just $0.99 for a limited time.

AutoVerbal leverages the Internet for custom TEXT-TO-SPEECH phrases, when it is available, but automatically uses a standard built-in voice when Internet is unavailable. More voices and phrases to come! AutoVerbal looks and works great on the iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch! For less than $200, everyone can afford their own mobile AutoVerbal device without worrying about Medicare coverage.

AutoVerbal builds upon the success No Tie Software has had with the AutoRingtone family of TEXT-TO-SPEECH Talking Ringtone apps. AutoRingtone users have created over 1,000,000 custom ringtones using the same TTS technology behind AutoVerbal. Many of the voices in AutoRingtone will be integrated into AutoVerbal once the introductory pricing period has ended. No Tie is offering AutoVerbal at this low price to solicit feedback on usability and phrases from as large an audience as possible.

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad
* Requires iPhone OS 3.0 or later
* 34.2 MB

Pricing and Availability:
AutoVerbal Talking Soundboard 1.0 is only $0.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Lifestyle category.

media_1276188781585.png

MParis today released SouthAfricaPhone 1.0 for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad users. The launch comes just in time for users to run simulations and set their scores for Soccer Cup 2010. SouthAfricaPhone allows World Cup enthusiasts to enter their match score predictions in order to play, "What if?" The application calculates the user’s input automatically and shows what the match results would be based on their input.

Soccer Cup 2010 runs from June 11th to July 11th and is expected to draw three billion fans, who will be watching sixty-four matches during the month of competition.

MParis owner, Mauricio Paris, is a huge soccer fan himself, so it was only natural that he would develop an application specifically for the sport. "People all over the world love soccer and The World Cup is a terrific, exciting event. I loved creating something for fellow fans," says Paris.

SouthAfricaPhone is the product that Paris is referring to. Users can enter their score predictions for each match of Soccer Cup 2010 to see a simulation of the results. Entries can easily be changed, so users can run as many sims as they want, with SouthAfricaPhone doing all the calculations of outcome. No internet connection is required, either.

Paris has ensured lots of convenience and features in the app. Aside from the portability of being on an iDevice, users can see, in nine languages, the schedules for all sixty-four matches in any of twenty-six time zones, watch how the eight team groups develop, and sync with the website after the Soccer Cup to see or download results.

Users get access to these great features with SouthAfricaPhone:
* Soccer Cup 2010 right on iDevice
* Even Before JUNE 11 and without Internet Connection, users can set their own scores to matches to run simulations. After June 11 they can do the same or download the results from the website

* The program handles 9 languages: English, Spanish, Portuguese, French, German, Italian, Netherlands, Danish and African* See the conformation and development of the 8 team groups and their tie to 8s, 4s and Finals

15Classic 1.1

media_1276188851632.png

Tekton Technologies (P) Ltd. today released i15Classic 1.1 for iPhone and iPod touch users. i15Classic is reminiscent of the old manual tile moving game that kids used to play during car trips. There are fifteen tile blocks on a screen, which users have to rearrange and put in the correct sequential order. The app incorporates touchscreen controls, so moving blocks is just a matter of a finger swipe, which may be another reason for the reported game addiction.

The i15Classic app is reminiscent of the old manual tile moving game that kids used to play during car trips. There are fifteen tile blocks on a screen, which users have to rearrange and put in the correct sequential order. The game can be frustratingly addictive, mostly because it holds a player’s interest and is a lot of fun. What may or may not matter to users is the fact that their brains are being stimulated and their bodies are relaxing as they play.

Using i15Classic engages a person’s complete interest, bringing their mind to an alert stage for gameplay but shuts out other, more stressful thoughts. That, plus the fun factor, probably explains why players have trouble putting the game down.

Tekton developers have designed an attractive and intuitive interface that is easy for players to navigate. The app incorporates touchscreen controls, so moving blocks is just a matter of a finger swipe, which may be another reason for the reported game addiction. The action can move as fast as a user can play.

Fun, addictive features of the i15Classic App:
* Easy-to-use, attractive and intuitive interface
* Bold numeric tile blocks to move
* Challenging difficulty levels hold user interest
* Ability to set sound options
* Start a new game just by shaking phone
* High scores are noted, based on time and number of moves
* Game can be continued where a user left off
* Exercises the brain while having fun and relaxing

This is certainly not the first mobile application that Tekton has developed but it is definitely a therapeutic one, considering the brain and body can both benefit just from having fun with it. To find out more, or to download your own i15Classic, please visit the App’s iTunes page.

Device Requirements:
* 3G iPhone and iPod touch
* Requires iPhone OS 2.2.1 or later
* 1.0 MB

Pricing and Availability

Journal Diary 1.1.4

media_1276189171683.png

Sulaba Inc. today released Journal Diary 1.1.4 for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad users. The application provides a creative venue for users to express themselves in a multimedia format. Rather than holding in stress, users can record text, audio and photographic impressions, ideas or even the good stuff, like important happy memories. Journal Diary allows for quick entries on the spot, so users can fit them in during a busy day.

Society’s current hectic pace creates high stress levels, resulting in illness, relationship problems and other stress related issues. People no longer take the time to vent themselves creatively to release that pressure, which only continues to build until the body reacts somehow to stop it, or it bleeds out into other areas of a person’s life to stir up even more strife.

Journal Diary has been developed to help. "People are stressed out more than before in this fast moving world because they don’t express their feelings or write in some form," says Sulaba’s CEO, Natarajan Sambamoorthy.

Sambamoorthy believes that current stress levels are, at least in part, even to blame for Autism, "Stress is the fundamental reason that autism is on the rise. Parental genes got mutated by keeping their stress levels at an all time high. This app intends to help current and future generations by expressing their emoticons, voice recordings and background pictures for each day."

Most anyone can use Journal Diary, including those with some physical limitation and people with Autism. If a person can tap an emoticon, they can express themselves in the app. With Autistics, the daily emoticon recordings can be shown to a doctor, who can gauge how the patient is doing.

Of course, users don’t have to be stressed out to use Journal Diary. It works like any diary, providing a safe haven for recording daily happenings, special events or thoughts and the like. There is optional password protection to keep all entries securely private.

Journal Diary Features:
* Excellent venue to creatively vent or express feelings, frustrations, etc.
* Optional password protection
* Customize settings
* Select background picture options
* Enable email notifications or export entries
* Type an entry for any day on the calendar
* Emoticons for adding emphasis or reading emotions of someone is unable to express themselves otherwise
* Entries are easy to edit
* Voice memo lets you add a voice recording
* Vault area adds maximum privacy

To learn more about how Journal Diary can help reduce stress or store precious memories, please visit the Sulaba website. Purchase and download information can be found on the Journal Diary page of iTunes.

Device Requirements:
* 2G, 3G, 3GS iPhone, iPod touch and iPad
* Requires iPhone OS 3.0 or later

Wildcat Apps today announce Hide and Seek + Tag 1.0, their new multiplayer App for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices. Hide and Seek + Tag encourages children to run and play outside. Players will have to keep their iPod touch or iPhone parallel to the ground with the goal of keeping a virtual green ball inside a virtual bowl. If the ball rolls out for any reason, that player is knocked out.

The App will randomly choose who is it and will prompt that person to set the Game Duration, Time to Hide, and Bowl Depth for all remaining players. The players have from 1 to 5 minutes to hide from the person who is it. Once that time is up, those players will have to keep their iPod touch or iPhone parallel to the ground with the goal of keeping a virtual green ball inside a virtual bowl. If the ball rolls out for any reason, that player is knocked out. Players can move after they hide but they run the risk of having the ball roll out of the bowl. The player who is it will chase other players with the goal of knocking them out of the game. When the game timer runs out, winners are those players who can show the player who is it their winning screen. If no one can do this, the player who is it is the winner.

All Cars Catalog – 48,000 Cars 1.1

media_1276189735924.png

OOFsource has announced that All Cars Catalog – 48,000 Cars 1.1 for the iPhone is on sale. Compatible with the iPhone, and iPod touch, the comprehensive app provides full search capabilities of over 48,000 vehicles, including 205 car brands since 1900, over 8,000 color photos, and detailed specifications for every listing. The app operates in full screen mode, displays photos in "cover flow", saves photos to the media library, and is one of the most extensive car catalogs in the App Store.

With a stylish two-tone, black steel mesh motif, the All Cars Catalog provides instant answers to nearly any car question. The Catalog opens with four large buttons: All Brands, All Years, All Categories, and Search! Tap Brands and 205 listings scroll alphabetically, from AC, AMC, Abarth to Zastava, Zender, Zundapp. The color logo of each brand appears next to its name. Selecting a brand takes the user back to the opening Catalog screen, but now the All Brands button reads the brand selected.

Tapping All Years brings up the scrolled listing of years from 2009 to 1900. After choosing a year, the user returns to the Catalog screen to select from a list of 16 categories, including: cabriolets/sports cars, cargo vans, large/luxury cars, limousines, midsize family cars, military vehicles, minibuses, minicars, multipurpose/combi cars, offroad cars, pickup trucks, prototypes/concept models, SUVs, small city/economy cars, station wagons/estate cars, vans/minivans. Finally, the user presses the Search! button and the result(s) are immediately listed.

The app does not require the user to make a selection with all 3 buttons. For example, one can simply choose "limousines" from the Categories listings and hit Search! to bring up every manufacturer-offered limo ever made. Having reached his result(s) he can scroll to select any listing. Each entry begins with a color photo of the car (if available), and then continues with specifications neatly arranged under various categories: General; Main Features; Engine & Transmission; Speed & Acceleration, Exterior & Interior; Steering, Brakes & Tires; Dimensions & Weight; and Pricing & Other. All measurements are given in metric and US systems. There is also a switch at the end of the entry where the user can select the car as a Favorite, which adds it to the app’s Favorites list.

Feature Highlights:
* A comprehensive catalog of over 48,000 cars and trucks
* Lists 205 brands manufactured from 1900 through 2009

Stock Genie 2.2.2

media_1276189912169.png

Bit Mantra has released major updates for Stock Genie 2.2.2 for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad users. The application, which is the number one stock app in all of iTunes, breaks down the details of daily stocks and picks the best one, based on fifteen different criteria, effectively doing all the research for making an informed decision. Users are shown the result and can then consider whether or not to include the stock in their portfolio.

Former veteran financial investment manager and Stock Genie developer, Matthew Lazar, wants to help users take control of their own finances with the help of Stock Genie. "I wanted to provide stock market advice for the average consumer who doesn’t have time to research. If you get lazy, your results will reflect that. I know people lost a lot of their money with the credit crisis and this has very real consequences, like their children’s education or their own retirement. I wanted people to have easy access to a system that works, get back to even, then outperform the market," says Lazar.

It seems obvious that Lazar has accomplished his mission. Stock Genie has been tracked on Tickerspy with impressive results. At the end of 2009, the app’s picks were up 92.9% for the year. To date in 2010, Stock Genie is up 37.69% versus the S&P 500, which is up 2.65%. Since inception, Stock Genie has beaten the S&P 500 by 102.48%. If Stock Genie was a large cap mutual fund, it would be in the top 1% of all money managers and ranked third among all funds.

The Stock Genie model uses twelve to fifteen different criteria for each sector to produce as many as ten picks each and every day. Once these picks are broken down and studied in detail, the Stock Genie presents users with the single best pick of the day, along with pertinent information about that stock: volume, 52 week range, market cap, P/E ration, all time percentages and current price. Users are armed with all the information they need to make an informed decision about that stock. The addition of push notifications means that users will know as soon as a new recommendation is released.

Users are able to view the profitable pick of the day, as well as the performances of previous picks. They can also access the Bit Mantra financial website to view other stocks.

Stock Genie is not just for experienced investors, either. Even beginners can take advantage of this amazing app because it gives winning stock picks, entry/exit points and the important reasons that it was chosen as the daily recommendation. To help further, the All Time versus S&P 500 is displayed prominently at the top of the daily stock screen.

In this latest app update, Bit Mantra has added tools to enhance the already highly profitable and amazing application. Push notifications and other in app purchases are now available to all users. Learn more about how Stock Genie can help you prosper by visiting them online.

Here is what some other websites have had to say about Stock Genie 2:

"As a simple tool for finding good stocks, Stock Genie offers great features for helping you make purchasing decisions all while giving you an investment education at the same time" – Macworld

"The most profitable app available in the entire app store" – Apple Bites

"Trusted, expert trader making all the right moves for his users" – App Store Apps

PlanetOne 1.1

media_1276190214283.png

Independent game developer Paulson Apps today announces PlanetOne 1.1 for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices. Designed from the ground up for Apple devices, PlanetOne is a Retro Style, side-scrolling 2D video game that stars a little blue man. The man must run, jump, and roll his way through 22 action-packed and unique levels. Players must guide the little blue man as he searches for The Maya, the life-force of his planet, which was stolen by an evil being.

"I wanted to bring the characteristics of the classic platformers we all fell in love with to a new Iphone medium," said PlanetOne lead engineer and designer Jason Elbourne. "While there are plenty of games for the IPhone, I noticed a lack of Retro 2D side-scrolling action games with a traditional tiledmap look and classic controls . I decided to do something about that."

With cute, 2D characters and a retro style, PlanetOne brings classic "platformer" game play to your IPhone device. Players must guide the little blue man as he searches for The Maya, the life-force of his planet, which was stolen by an evil being. The planet has now been populated by a diverse ecosystem of robots and deadly lava, but perhaps more dangerous is Dr. Kular, the leader of a shadowy mega corporation who has stolen The Maya. Players who are capable enough to find The Maya may discover that not everything on PlanetOne is as it seems, with hidden passageways in many areas, leading to hidden Gems.

Supported Languages:
* US English, French and German

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad
* Requires iPhone OS 3.0 or later
* 20.5 MB

Cubz 1.1

media_1276190326515.png

Geneva-based Rudicubes today announces Cubz 1.1, an update to their futuristic, 3-D Sliding Puzzle game for the iPhone and iPad HD. It is based on the Slide-15 game of maneuvering 15 numbered tiles into numerical order in a 4×4 grid. Cubz challenges the player to order cubes instead of tiles. There are three modes: 8 cubes in a 2-D 3×3 grid, 17 cubes in a 3x3x2 grid, and 26 cubes in a 3x3x3 grid. Each mode contains three levels of difficulty, and cube arrays may be rotated in 3-D space.

Gameplay is simple – tapping on any cube adjacent to an empty space moves the cube into that space; diagonal moves are not permitted. Dragging any cube rotates the entire array of cubes around the x, y, or z-axes, allowing the player to view the puzzle from any angle. A convenient Front icon re-aligns the array to its original view, all axes at zero degrees. Competition play is well supported, as the game records the starting configuration of every puzzle solved, the number of moves required to reach the solution, and the amount of time used. Players are encouraged to publish their best scores on the in-app online leaderboard, solve another player’s puzzle in less time and fewer moves, and share scores on Facebook and Twitter.

The 3-D play is enhanced by smooth, animated graphics. There are seven color schemes, and the player can opt for numbered or lettered cubes. The game includes both iPhone/iPod touch and iPad versions. The play is identical, but the iPad version provides a dramatic improvement in resolution and impact. Instructions for play are excellent, and the difficulty levels ramp up slowly enough so as not to discourage the inexperienced player. Players may access any mode or any level of difficulty at will. At the start of each game the array of cubes is in perfect order, the puzzle solved. By shaking the device the cubes are randomly re-ordered, and a Distance counter indicates the minimum number of moves required to achieve the solution.

Feature Highlights:
* Includes separate versions for native iPad operation, and iPhone/iPod touch
* Slide cubes in 3-D space: 3×3, 3x3x2, and 3x3x3 matrices
* Scoring based on elapsed time and number of moves to solution
* Any mode and any level of difficulty is accessible, games may be resumed
* Integrated online leaderboard and challenges, Facebook and Twitter connectivity
* Suitable for players of all ages

"I was 71 years old and retired for a year," said Rudolf Farkas, developer. "One morning, I woke up and started thinking of the best way to program the Slide-15 Puzzle. Suddenly, I saw Cubz in my mind: a matrix of 26 cubes floating in 3D space that you could control using your fingers."

Hard to compare in difficulty with the 27-cube Rubik’s Cube, Cubz calls upon a different subset of spatial and reasoning skills. This is because: only a single cube is altered at a time; continuous interior 3-D views of the "super-cube" are available; center cubes can become end cubes; and ordering cubes numbered from 1 through 26 is a problem of a different order than twisting cubes of 6 different colors so that each face of the "super-cube" is monochromatic.

Language Support:
US English, German, Spanish, French, Italian

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad
* iPhone OS 3.0 or later
* 15.2 MB

Pricing and Availability:
Cubz 1.1 is a universal binary for iPhone, iPod touch, or true iPad HD, and is available at the special introductory price of $1.99 (USD or equivalent in other currencies) exclusively through the App Store in the Games category. In conjunction with WWDC 2010, the app will be FREE until June 13.

Minnesota based Jeremy Greene Inc. has announced that DistCalc 1.1 has broken into the top 15 Navigation rankings on the iTunes App Store. DistCalc is a mapping application that allows users to easily tap out a path and measure its distance in a variety of measurements – including miles, kilometers, yards and meters. DistCalc’s ability to map paths across areas with no roads or addresses truly differentiates it from other mapping applications in the App Store today.

DistCalc was released in early May and has seen explosive growth and a large following of runners and those training for marathon or ultra type races. There has also been a flood of positive feedback from golfers looking for a simple distance calculator while on the course.

"We knew early on that there was a market for this type of application. All of the mapping applications out there calculated distance after you traveled or ran that distance. Planning a training run, calculating the yards to the front of the green, or just having fun and seeing how many miles it is to Madagascar is made simple and fun with DistCalc" said Jeremy Greene, founder and designer of DistCalc. "We’ll continue to listen to the feedback from our 1000’s of users and build upon our initial success in the app store" said Greene. "Expect an iPad specific release early this summer."

Skobbler

media_1276190687639.png

Upstart Berlin developers today release Skobbler, the first truly free turn by turn navigation system for iPhone devices. With Skobbler you will never have to pay for map updates as you become the map updater yourself. The goal of Skobbler is to show what’s already possible on the OpenStreetMap and engage the audience to further its perfection. With maps evolving at the current rate, the OpenStreetMap will evolve into the most accurate and up to date mapping system available to anyone.

If you ask fifty people what the most expensive mobile application they have ever purchased was, the vast majority of them will have the same answer – their navigation app. While games and entertainment apps engaged in a race to the bottom with more and more of them becoming either free or priced as low as $0.99, navigation apps from big players either kept their premium prices (e.g. TomTom) or lured customers with cheap entry apps that needed to be updated (e.g. MapQuest) or subscribed to (e.g. AT&T Navigator and MotionX) to be fully usable. Until now. A small firm from Germany has taken the open source mapping system known as OpenStreetMap and adapted it into a full-fledged turn by turn navigation system with voice directions … and made it free.

How does Skobbler keep their application free? Through the revolutionary use of what has been called the Wikipedia of road maps, an open source map project called "OpenStreetMap" that has for years been allowing users to map their own neighborhoods and motorways to create a gigantic ever evolving source of mapping data.

OpenStreetMap has already more than 250,000 active mappers worldwide and has been increasing its members tenfold every 18 months since 2004. "It’s really an amazing setup" said Marcus Thielking, co-founder and CMO of Skobbler. "If you find an error in the system, perhaps because of changed road conditions, you can report the change directly to the OpenStreetMap community from within the Skobbler app or edit it yourself by using one of the free map editors on the web. "

With Skobbler you will never have to pay for costly and sluggish map updates as you become the map updater yourself! The goal of Skobbler is to show what’s already possible on the OpenStreetMap and engage the audience to further its perfection. With maps evolving at the current rate and more people editing their neighborhoods every day, the OpenStreetMap will evolve into the most accurate and up to date mapping system available to anyone, anywhere. "This is already the future of digital maps. And it will be the future of navigation as well," said Thielking.

The backlash from the established navigation industry was immediate and severe ranging from obviously fake reviews right after the app’s launch to drastic price cuts in order to divert attention away. It’s no surprise that the establishment is worried. In the wake of Google’s industry-shaking announcement of introducing their Navigator software for free on Android phones in the US, skobbler has enjoyed great success and media attention in its home country Germany: The app has topped the iTunes navigation category for six months straight and sold more than 150,000 units (at an average price of more than $5) to date there.

Skobbler maintains that the app in its current form of functionality will remain free in the US. While there are a few companies now offering "freemium" navigation systems including AT&T’s own "AT&T Navigator", they all have hidden costs tied to them in the form of a monthly subscription that is needed after a trial period or an in-app purchase to get a full . Skobbler is a free download that comes fully equipped with voice directions and turn by turn navigation that will be as free a year from now as it is today.

Skobbler runs on the iPhone 3G and 3Gs over the cellular connection and does not require Wi-Fi to operate. The app is small enough (2.3MB) to download over the air and is optimized for any device running OS 3.0 or later. The small install size saves you plenty of storage capacity to use for your favorite music, photos or other apps.

Skobbler’s easy visual navigation interface runs in both 2D and 3D, and has both daytime and night time operating modes. Travelers on foot or bike can switch to the pedestrian navigation mode for direct routing.

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad
* Requires iPhone OS 3.0 or later
* 2.3 MB

Pricing and Availability:
skobbler US 2.1.1 is free and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Navigation category.

BA Financial Calculator 2.0

media_1276190879097.png

California-based Vicinno Soft, LLC announces BA Financial Calculator 2.0 for the iPhone OS, a major update to their best-selling emulator for the classic Texas Instruments BA II Plus. Identical in every aspect, the app provides a perfect emulation of the layout, functions, algorithms, capabilities, and key sequences of the venerable TI workhorse. Ideal for courses in Accounting, Economics, Finance, Marketing, Math, Real Estate, and Statistics, it is an ideal financial calculator for the iPhone.

Released in 1978, the Texas Instruments Business Analyst II Plus calculator quickly became a standard among finance and accounting professionals. The device incorporates a vast array of functions, yet remains simple to learn and use. The model is one of only two calculators permitted on the Chartered Financial Analyst exam and the Society of Actuaries exam. Perhaps in tribute to its heritage, the read-out’s simple black alphanumerics on a gray background maintain the blocky, LCD font of the original device.

Feature Highlights:
* Time-Value-of-Money calculations
* Amortization schedules
* Cash-Flow Analysis, Net Present Value, and Internal Rate of Return
* Depreciation with four different methodologies
* Break even, profit, and percent difference calculations
* Bond prices and yields "to maturity" or "to call" calculations
* 10 Memories for storage
* Choice of Chain and Algebraic Operating System methods
* Scientific capabilities, including log, sin, cos, etc.
* Key click sounds enabled via Settings

Just as the TI calculator, the app has two modes of operation: standard calculator and worksheet. The standard mode accommodates common mathematical operations, plus problems involving the time value of money, such as mortgages and annuities where payments are equal and evenly spaced. Trigonometric functions are also supported in standard mode.

The more complex worksheet mode provides step-by-step instructions for calculating amortization, depreciation, bond, and compound interest. All entries and results are saved in working memory, so recurring values are easily accessed. Basic interest and payment periods are well within the capabilities of the average user.

The version 2 update includes a complete redesign of the graphical representation of the calculator. The numerical keypad is now light gray with white numerals, function keys are black with white symbols, and alternate characters are above each key in orange. Four colors: white, black, light gray, and orange make for excellent ergonomics, and an optional click sound with each tap provides additional feedback. And while the face and keyboard support only US English, operating manuals are available on the Vicinno website for the following languages: English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Swedish, Dutch, Danish, and Finnish, and are all accessible from within the app.

"Version 1.3 has been a great success on the App Store," commented CEO Liping Yang. "With the 2.0 update it is definitely easier to use than the HP-12C and other financial calculators. Compared to TI’s own financial calculator app whose price is $14.99, our emulator is truly a good deal, at only $0.99 now for limited time."

Device Requirements:
* iPhone or iPod touch
* iPhone OS 2.0 or later
* 0.7 MB

Pricing and Availability:
The BA Financial Calculator 2.0 for iPhone and iPod touch is now 80% off for limited time, only $0.99 (USD or equivalent in other currencies), and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Finance category. The BA Financial Calculator Lite model is free.

iHeadache

media_1276191282881.png

Help for millions of headache sufferers is as close as their phone. BetterQOL, the developers of iHeadache, a popular headache diary app for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad are giving away 10,000 free downloads beginning June 6. iHeadache is a comprehensive electronic headache diary that delves into a complete analysis of the headache. It classifies analyzes and tracks all facets of headache pain, including symptoms, triggers, disability and medications.

The medical community agrees that it is essential for patients to track the frequency of their headaches, medications taken and other pertinent details but keeping up with a paper journal can be cumbersome. Luckily neurologist Brian D. Loftus, MD and businesswoman Blakely Long teamed up and developed iHeadache.

The app has unique capabilities not available in other applications that track headaches. iHeadache creates custom reports for the patient’s doctor that can be used to pinpoint patterns and optimize the patient’s treatment plan. "This software was designed to captures data from the patient in order to generate reports specifically formatted for their physician," explained Dr. Loftus, Chief Medical Officer of BetterQOL, Inc. "It’s the first step to optimized headache care."

Until now iHeadache has been priced between $4.99 and $9.99. "Being able to offer iHeadache for free is an opportunity to do something positive for a huge group of Americans whose lives are impacted by their headaches.", said Blakely Long, CEO of BetterQOL, Inc. "Our goal is for iHeadache available to everyone who can benefit from it and with our upcoming online version, even users without a Smartphone will be able to track their headaches."

The free version of iHeadache will be available beginning June 6, just in time for National Headache Awareness Week (June 6- 12). The free app is currently only available in the US App Store.

Over 30 million Americans have migraine headaches and women are three times more likely to suffer from them than men. During the last three months more than 8 million people missed at least one day of work and more than 9 million missed a family or social engagement due to a migraine headache. These numbers don’t include individuals who suffer day after day with tension, cluster or other types of headaches.

About iHeadache
The four stars plus app analyzes data entered using the International Headache Society criteria (IHS) to classify headaches as a migraine, probable migraine, tension headache or other unclassified headache. Information recorded, tracked and stored by iHeadache includes number of headaches, symptoms, duration, severity, disability, medication & usage and headache triggers.

Reports generated from iHeadache can be broken down into 7, 28 or 30 day periods or by specific months. Reports are formatted for physicians to quickly gather all relevant data needed to assess the treatment plan including the types of headaches the patient has, the number of headaches during a specified period of time, medications & doses taken, length of time the patient is disabled, their Migraine Disability Assessment Scale (MIDAS) score, headache triggers, and notes entered by the patient. iHeadache helps patients and physicians to pinpoint patterns and determine if a headache is chronic. Medication tracking is also used to help a doctor decide if a patient is having rebound headaches from medication overuse.

iHeadache runs on an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch running OS 3.0 or later or a BlackBerry running OS 4.5 or later. Don’t have a BlackBerry, iPhone or iPod touch? iHeadache developers are already working on an online version of iHeadache that will be available in late 2010.
