You Gotta See This!

media_1280503825811.png

Ever been at a concert and wished your friends could experience the atmosphere with you? Ever been on a mountain top and wished your family could experience the same view? Ever thought "they’ve got to see this!" but simply taking a picture was not enough? Share your experiences with unique images taken in a unique way with your iPhone 4 (required) and "You Gotta See This!" Read on to learn how it works…

Simply start the recording in "You Gotta See This!", swipe the scene up, down, left and right with the camera and share the image created by one of the five amazing themes on Twitter, Facebook or by email. Or simply save it to your camera roll for later presentation. (See a short tutorial video at our website.)
The app creates collages of images that you take by slowly moving the camera around in 3D space. The resulting images are somewhat similar to what is called "panography" or "Hockneyesque" (after the artist David Hockney).

 

"You Gotta See This!" uses the iPhone 4 gyroscope to determine the camera orientation while you record and positions the images it takes accordingly on a flat surface to create the spacial collages.

 

Here are 5 reasons why you would want to get "You Gotta See This":
1 It is a fun new creative way to take photos.
2 Your friends and family get to share your most amazing experiences much deeper than with normal photos.
3 It’s all the rave on twitter. (Look for #seethis)
4 It costs less than a tall Cappucino at your favorite café but you’ll enjoy it much longer.
5 You get to show off your brand new iPhone 4’s unique gyroscope feature.

IMPORTANT NOTE: You Gotta See This! requires an iPhone 4. It will not run on iPhone 3GS or 3G.

appbzr 1.1.2

media_1280577408612.png

rapidrabbit has released appbzr 1.1.2, an update to their free App Store meta-app for iPhone and iPod touch devices. Aiming to be the ultimate tool for all app lovers, appbzr helps to organize, discover and share apps. It was developed specifically for app enthusiasts and everyone who would like to become one. Version 1.1.2 features a whole new design, a listing of updated apps and recommended apps, based on other apps the user has installed.

Every day hundreds of apps arrive at the AppStore, their price drops or they receive a feature that makes them very popular. It’s increasingly difficult to keep track of these apps. As a result users have to read many blogs or they stop downloading apps at all. "appbzr" (pronounced app bazaar) has, since its release, helped to solve this problem.

"appbzr" has been developed specifically for app enthusiasts and everyone who would like to become one. It will help to organize, discover and share apps and therefore is the ultimate tool for all app lovers. The fast and accessible interface makes browsing through apps fun again. Every feature can be reached with a single tap: price drops, new apps, hot apps, Top100, updated apps and lists. Even a search function has been integrated, that is directly tied to the iTunes Store.

"appbzr" does not limit the user to see generated lists, they also can compose their own lists and share them with their friends. To get them started, three standard lists are provided. Sharing of lists is easy – with a single tap the list can be send via mail to a friend or can be shared on facebook. Sharing individual apps works the same way.

Push messages play a big role, too. Every day the user will get an "appbzr reminder", that tells him how many new price drops, hot and new apps have been found. If an user sets an app on his wish list, he will receive an individual push message when the price for that app drops -a feature that is especially popular with "appbzr" users.

Here is a short overview about the app:
* Price drops, hot, updated and new apps only a tap away
* The Top 100 of the biggest AppStore countries easily accessible
* Users can compose and share their own app lists
* Push messages inform the user about what’s going on at the AppStore
* Integrated search function
* Great user interface that leaves room for features to come

Supported Languages:
* US English, German, Italian and Spanish

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad
* Requires iOS 3.0 or later
* 1.8 MB

Pricing and Availability:
appbzr 1.1.2 is free and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Productivity category.

Police Scanner 2.2

media_1280577797870.png

Utah based Juicy Development has released Police Scanner 2.2, an iOS4 version of popular iPhone and iPod touch app. This critically acclaimed iPhone application allows users to listen to police, fire, and EMS activities around the world. Version 2.2 allows users to take advantage of iOS4’s ability to stream Police Scanner 2 live, while accessing other applications. Police Scanner 2 for iOS4 also supports high resolution image capability introduced by Apple with the release of iPhone 4.

The newest iPhone version of Police Scanner 2 allows users to take advantage of iOS4’s ability to stream Police Scanner 2 live, while accessing other applications. Police Scanner 2 for iOS4 also supports high resolution image capability introduced by Apple with the release of iPhone 4.

In addition to the iOS4 release, Juicy Development has a new update for Police Scanner – Android. The new Android version allows users to add favorites and navigate to the streams that they are looking for with an easier to use interface. Police Scanner runs on a wireless LAN, 3G, or on the Edge network and is compatible with all iPhone, iPod, and Android devices.

With thousands of national and international EMS streams, Police Scanner offers the largest selection of police, fire, and emergency services streams available for the iPhone or Android platform in one application.

"Many of our users are police and firefighters, so when we planned our update we wanted to ensure that we took full advantage of all the new iPhone 4 features to improve reliability and versatility," said David Kyle, project manager.

With over 25,000 daily users and streams in 9 countries, Police Scanner is the most far-reaching emergency stream application in the iTunes store. "Because our customers depend upon our application for up-to-date emergency information, it’s crucial that we provide as much coverage as we possibly can," said Kyle. "We maintain our own server farm and database so even when one of our major stream providers went down a few weeks ago, none of our users experienced an outage."

"Anyone who discovers a compatible stream can simply email the company or send a message through the company web page. New streams will usually be added within a few days. "If you send in a request saying add Detroit, we will get to it; if you go find a stream in Detroit and send us a link, we usually add those within a few hours." said Kyle.

As additional stations, counties, and cities are added, the database is automatically updated and the stream instantly becomes available to all Police Scanner users. Police Scanner uses the location-aware technology built into the phones to help users locate streams near them, or allows them to search through a list of all available streams from across the country.

Police scanner 2 is a must have for on-call volunteer fire fighters, news crews, emergency responders and hobbyists. Fans of Police Scanner are now able to purchase Police Scanner gear in the Juicy online store. Not all areas broadcast an iPhone compatible stream. This is still a new technology for many police, fire, and dispatch centers. A stream from your local city may not yet be available.

PocketProposal 1.0.7

media_1280578041462.png

Fyrian LLC has released PocketProposal 1.0.7 for iPhone and iPod touch. The application is an invaluable business tool that calculates fast, accurate price estimates on the run for busy freelancers or any professionals who bill by the hour. Users can provide project pricing that is based on hourly rates, unit prices, profit margin percentages or any complex combination of those. Users can generate quotations on the spot, from their iPhone or iPod touch.

It’s typical for people to insist on instant, ballpark pricing. It could come up at a networking luncheon, while attending a trade show or a chance encounter but everyone wants to know the same thing: how much will it cost. In this age of instant gratification, PocketProposal provides sweet relief to freelancers who often under quote their services and end up breaking even on a project or worse, losing money.

"Unfortunately, a lot of freelancers and other professionals find themselves in situations where they feel they need to respond immediately when a potential client asks for a ballpark price," says Mark Dollan, Owner of Fyrian LLC. "The worse part of that is the fact that the quoted price is sort of pulled out of thin air. People can get caught off guard, want to have a fast come back and guess off the top of their head. Sometimes it works out okay but most often, it doesn’t"

That’s where PocketProposal comes in. Dollan designed the app to help freelancers increase their profits and relieve some of that stress caused by being put on the spot with pricing questions.

Users can generate quotations on the spot, from their iPhone or iPod touch. The app quickly and easily calculates hourly rates, unit prices, wholesale markups or any combination of those things. This may prevent a freelancer from forgetting to add an element of a project or from calculating wrong when figuring things out in their head. All cost estimates can be emailed to the client and saved in individual client files, for later review or reference.

Some of the PocketProposal features:
* Generates accurate cost estimates, on the spot
* Calculates estimates based on hourly rate, unit price, mark up or all three
* Save quote to the client’s file
* Email estimate to customer, quickly and easily
* Can handle simple, average and complex project quotes
* Easy-to-use interface
* Increased profit potential; no more lost revenue because of misquoting

Learn more about how this important application can help increase freelance profits by visiting PocketProposal online. Purchase and download information is available on the PocketProposal page of iTunes.

* iPhone and iPod touch, iPad

Version 1.8 adds iBooks-like highlighting & note taking functionality for PDFs on the iPad, as well as support for fast user switching and the high resolution retina display of the iPhone 4.

In the 3 months since its release thousands of researchers have embraced Papers for iPad as their favorite way to read their PDFs and research articles. One thing was clear however, their number one request was the ability to highlight or copy text passages and leave notes on PDFs. With today’s new release that is now possible. Highlighting and note taking with Papers for iPad is simple and intuitive; what iBooks allows you to do on eBooks, Papers allows you to do with PDF. It makes reading an even better experience on the iPad.

Simply tap and drag to select a piece of text and tap highlight or copy, that is all there is to it. Highlighting can be very accurate thanks to a loupe that pops up while you select text, and Papers for iPad deals with multi-column PDFs too.

In addition, with Papers for iPad you can capture all the ideas, comments and thought you have while reading your PDFs. Tap and hold anywhere on the page and a sticky-note pops up on which you can type away. A red pin will help you quickly locate where you left your notes, almost like Google Maps for your Papers!

But also for iPhone owners there’s exciting news, Papers is now fully optimized for iOS4. It supports fast application switching, as well as the razor sharp retina display of the iPhone4. PDFs never looked this good.

"A couple of years ago, a Mac OS X application came along and blew my socks off. Now, the company behind Papers, Mekentosj, has done it again, this time by bringing its killer app to the iPhone in a timely manner. It doesn’t disappoint." – Ars technica

"When I found Papers on the app store, I realized that I had found a solution that was not only easier, but helped me conduct research in ways I didn’t even know I needed with a mobile device." – WhatsoniPhone

Critter Mash

media_1280580896517.png

Hagerstown, Maryland – Announcing that E4 Software, the developer of Critter Mash, has released the latest update for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad users. Critter Mash 1.0 combines 3D graphics with an age old arcade and carnival favorite. The object of the game is simple: "Whack" the cute little animals when they pop their heads out of their holes. Players use their finger to tap animals on the head to gain points. They must be careful because the game is timed. Tapping the wrong animal, could take time away from them.

The longer a player lasts, the faster the Critter Mashing action becomes. More Critters are added every 65 seconds, and in the late stages some Critters carry much higher scores. Players need to take care because penalties can increase too. Hitting the Fox takes 5 seconds off the clock, and failing to hit the King or Queen Weasel means lost time as well. Users need to act fast, because if the clock runs down before they finish, the game is over. Critter Mash 1.0 is easy to learn, easy to play, and almost impossible to put down.

Here are some of Critter Mash’s awesome features:
* 3-D graphics
* Easy to use controls
* Familiar format
* Beat the clock for higher scores
* Bonus points for prolonged play
* Fun and exciting game play
* Addictive!

Nimble Strong: Bartender in Training

media_1280581289542.png

New York, NY – Developed over two years by a team of video game and mixology veterans, Nimble Strong: Bartender in Training combines a full 101 drink mixing course with fun game play and a mature storyline. Nimble Strong launched recently to critical praise, with noted gaming website Joystiq awarding it a near-perfect score for its ability to educate as well as entertain, declaring: "Finally, video games have a purpose."

"Whereas nearly every video game aimed at children has an underlying educational component, there is little available for adults who are interested in learning life useful skills," said Adam Ghahramani, the game’s director. "With Nimble Strong we spent as much time on creating a progressive and authentic educational experience as we did on the game play and storyline."

To underscore the game’s educational mission, players who complete Nimble Strong can fill out a form online and receive a printable bartending certificate.

Nimble Strong: Bartender in Training was co-written and audited by Jeffrey Lindenmuth, one of the nation’s top cocktail and spirits writers, and co-designed by a game design lecturer at the Parsons School in New York City. Players will also be surprised to learn that Nimble Strong was narrated by legendary anime and video game voice actor Kyle Hebert, who plays Gohan in the classic show DragonBall Z, Kamina in Gurren Lagaan, and Ryu in the hit game Street Fighter 4.

Additional features include multiple endings, dialogue branches, a vibrant art style that blends Japanese anime with Eastern European edge, 15 unique characters, practice and survival modes, and accelerometer support, so you can shake drinks by shaking your iPhone.

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad
* Requires iOS 2.0 or later (iOS 4.0 Tested)
* 34.6 MB

Pricing and Availability:
Nimble Strong: Bartender in Training is $4.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Games category.

Halp! 1.2

media_1280581451374.png

Sinecure Industries has released Halp! 1.2, an update to their free Advice Generator for iPhone and iPod touch. There have been some major changes in this version 1.2 release. There is a new, larger font, a refresh button, crisper graphics and even more bad advice! Even better, it’s still free. "Halp! The Advice Generator" now has a refresh button location in the upper right portion of the app interface. No more embarrassing arm fat jiggling.

As a company, Sinecure Industries has learned several valuable lessons from the release of "Halp! The Advice Generator" and the subsequent reaction:

Problem #1: People no longer learn/know how to read cursive. We have received hundreds of complaints from people telling us that Halp! was in another language. A few told us they wanted a refund on their free app. Needless to say, we happily obliged.

Solution #1: "Halp! The Advice Generator" now has a crisp, clean font. The font is also larger as a few people said the text was both illegible and too small.

Problem #2: People are too weak to shake their phone to refresh. This complaint went hand in hand with the font problem. I can relate to this problem, with so many pieces of bad advice, going through them all can become tiring. Then again, the iPhone weighs a whole pound and if you are tired shaking it, well, you have bigger problems.

Solution #2: "Halp! The Advice Generator" now has a refresh button location in the upper right portion of the app interface. No more embarrassing arm fat jiggling! No more heart palpitations from an iPhone app! Sinecure Industries understands what it is to be lazy and we’re here to help. Or Halp!

Problem #3: "My family is dead, I hope you’re happy" review on the App Store.

Solution #3: We’re very happy that you’re finding new ways to live your life from "Halp! The Advice Generator" and are pleased you found a piece of advice that really spoke to you. We’re also very happy we have modified terms and conditions that completely absolve us from any liability in this matter!

Problem #4: "All of your advice is bad" – support e-mail.

Solution #4: Shut up!

We here at Sinecure Industries listen to our customers, and we want you to know that we have your best interests in mind. Every single piece of advice in "Halp! The Advice Generator" was meticulously crafted, edited, re-crafted, put in a blender and spit out for your enjoyment and use. We want you to live a better life however you see fit.

Device Requirements:
* iPhone and iPod touch
* Requires iOS 4.0 or later
* 0.5 MB

Pricing and Availability:
Halp! The Advice Generator 1.2 is free and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Productivity category.
