media_1282165145324.png

New York, NY – Mobile entertainment developer Eyedip has announced the upcoming release of their high-flying hot air balloon game, Flight Doodle and Flight Doodle HD on the App Store next week. With uniquely customizable aircrafts, lush, colorful atmospheric settings and visually brilliant graphics, it’s delightful and light-hearted gameplay for all ages.

Soaring skyward, players gather power-ups and avoid an array of falling objects and enemies as they try to reach new heights. They will be able to design their own hot-air balloons using the in-game drawing program and watch their creations take flight. Players can collect a variety of tools that help them deal with everything from changing weather patterns to falling pushpins. With the tap of a finger, they can shrink the balloon, give it a protective shield, or even arm it with explosive shells that blast obstacles!

"Flight Doodle is challenging, wonderfully simple and full of fun details. You can share your customized balloon and even doodle your own art on the menu screen," says Eyedip Co-Founder Steven Fleisher.

Eyedip will release Flight Doodle and Flight Doodle HD next week. "We wanted to give everyone the chance to play it so it was important for us to release several versions," says Eyedip Co-Founder Jeremy Adelman, "We know players will want more, so we are planning to release several mini games and modes in the first month with new features and challenges to keep their gaming spirits soaring!"

With a beautifully sketched art style and naturally fun and casual gameplay, Flight Doodle takes iPhone gaming to new heights.

TraxItAll

media_1282165716316.png

Chicago, Illinois – TraxItAll Software has announced TraxItAll for iOS devices, a unique Goal Setting and Daily Tracking app. As its name suggests, TraxItAll enables users to track anything on a daily basis: Sales calls, blood sugar, pill taking, their weight, stock prices, billable hours, miles run, whether they worked out or not, or anything else they would like to track. Users can also take notes, set goals, and quickly see how they’re performing in relation to those goals.

TraxItAll, which currently sells for $3.99, has already been selected as one of the "Top 10 Psychology Apps" for the iPhone on ThePsychFiles.com, based on its effectiveness as a motivational and goal-setting tool:

"A really cool goal-setting app … What I like about this program is the key to goal setting is being specific … No magic to this other than that it keeps track of what you said you were going to do and gives you feedback … A good demonstration of the effective technique of goal setting." – Michael A. Britt, Ph.D.

What TraxItAll Does

TraxItAll combines several important functions into one unique app:

* It’s a daily tracking program that enables users to track whatever matters to them. Rather than telling users what they can track, TraxItAll asks users the question, "What do you need to know?" Users can enter their data either via the tap-counter or the keypad to record whether or not they worked out, how many sales calls they made, etc.

* It’s a highly effective goal-setting tool. It makes users accountable to themselves by giving them very specific feedback on whether they’re meeting their goals or not.

* It’s a recurring, automatic, daily to-do list. TraxItAll automatically reminds users each day of the things they want to do, whether its major items such as "Work Out," or simple things such as "Eat a Carrot."

* It’s a daily note-taking tool. TraxItAll lets users add brief, daily notes to any of the items they’re tracking, to remind themselves of exactly what happened or what they did in relation to that item on that day.

How TraxItAll Works

The core of TraxItAll is its three-fold tracking method (patent-pending), i.e., for each item a user wants to track, they select one of three different tracking methods for recording their data:

* Count: How many times something happened on a given day: How many sales calls did I make? How many hours did I bill? How many miles did I run?

* Yes/No: Did something happen or not?: Did I work out? Did I Take my pills? Was I cigarette-free?

* Average: What was something’s level: What was my weight? My blood sugar? My cholesterol? The value of my 401k? The price of my stock?

This three-fold tracking method makes TraxItAll very flexible and powerful, and yet at the same time it is surprisingly simple and easy to use. In addition, TraxItAll’s unique "Goal Bar" shows users their progress in graphic format; as users get closer to reaching their goal, the bar changes color from red to blue. Users can even email their reports to family members, friends, colleagues, teachers, or whoever else needs to see how they’re doing.

Key Features:
* No internet access needed
* A simple and easy way to track anything
* Users can set goals for anything that’s important to them
* Users can create as many different tracks as they like
* Tracks can be organized by category
* Data can be entered either via the Tap Counter (for smaller numbers) or via the keypad (for larger numbers)
* Uses can add brief notes to their daily entries
* Uses can create a recurring, automatic, daily "To Do" list
* Tracks are highly customizable, including how many decimals to display and what Yes/No symbols to use
* Reports can be quickly viewed on a weekly, monthly, quarterly, yearly, and overall basis, and viewed in either "Goal Bar" or statistical format
* Reports show users exactly how they’re performing in relation to the goals they set for themselves
* Users can easily share their reports via email with anyone who needs to see them

Device Requirements:
* iPhone and iPod touch
* Requires iOS 3.1 or later (iOS 4.0 Tested)
* 2.2 MB

Pricing and Availability:
TraxItAll 1.1 is $3.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Productivity category.

TrueHDR 1.1

media_1282165814659.png

Boston, Massachusetts – Pictional LLC today is pleased to announce the release of TrueHDR 1.1, an update to TrueHDR that brings major improvements in high dynamic range (HDR) photography to the iPhone. With the new release, users can easily create full-resolution HDR images on both the iPhone 4 and the iPhone 3GS. Users can also easily share their HDR photos via Facebook, Twitter, and email.

TrueHDR is designed to address the issue that cameras can only capture a limited range of brightness in a single photo. In other words, when people take photos of a scene that has a large range from bright to dark, they often have to choose between the bright areas and the dark areas – if a picture is appropriately exposed for the bright areas (e.g., a sunny sky with clouds), then the dark areas (e.g., a person standing in the shade under a tree) often become gray or black blobs with no details. Vice versa, if a picture is correctly exposed for the dark areas, the bright areas get washed out and look like white haze.

TrueHDR allows users to take two photos on an iPhone 4 or iPhone 3GS with the in-app camera, tapping on a bright area to adjust exposure for the first image and tapping on a dark area to adjust exposure for the second image. TrueHDR uses sophisticated computational techniques to automatically align and merge the original images, and then optimize the resulting image for display. It also allows users to select a pair of saved images previously taken under different exposure settings, and merge them into one HDR image.

TrueHDR employs state-of-the-art image merging algorithms that draw inspiration from human visual perception, producing images that show high dynamic range yet are natural-looking. As a result, TrueHDR results are often much closer to what users’ eyes originally saw, and rarely suffer from banding (a.k.a. "halo") artifacts that have come to be associated with HDR pictures.

In the new release of TrueHDR, new memory management techniques now allow for beautiful HDR results at the full (native) resolutions of the iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS cameras. The algorithm for aligning images has also been improved to better handle hand movement during the course of a user taking multiple photos, leading to even higher quality results and greater ease of use.

The new release of TrueHDR also includes an improved user interface, an option for auto-saving original pre-HDR photos, support for quick app switching which allows user to pick up right from where they left off when returning to TrueHDR, and support for creating HDR images with the iPhone 4’s front camera.

Feature highlights:
* Now supports full resolution, including iPhone 4 camera (front and back)
* Improved user interface, including support for iPhone 4 retina display
* New sharing features (Facebook, Twitter, email)
* Better image alignment, and more natural-looking results
* Auto-saving option for original pre-HDR photos
* Supports quick app switching – pick up from where you left off when you return

Supported Languages:
* US English and Chinese

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

Pricing and Availability:
TrueHDR 1.1 is $1.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Photography category.

The easy to use controls provide quick access to onscreen instructions in the event that the user needs a little help.

The TabView screen allows users to listen to their chosen practice piece as many times an necessary to get comfortable with the patterns. When they’re ready to start practicing, all they have to do is watch the scrolling tablature and pick along with the tune. For students that can’t quite keep up with the app, switching to "Silent" mode also activates a sliding speed control that allows the user to adjust the scrolling speed to suit their skill level.

MathTappers: Find Sums 1.5

media_1282166046849.png

HeavyLifters Network Ltd. has released MathTappers: Find Sums 1.5 for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. MathTappers: Find Sums is a unique, free app designed to help kids master basic addition and subtraction facts. It combines a simple game with helpful models that support children as they make sense of the math that they are learning. MathTappers: Find Sums uses tools that teachers often use in the classroom to help children visualize relationships between numbers and master their fact families.

MathTappers: Find Sums is a unique app that combines a simple game with helpful models that support children as they make sense of the math that they are learning. "Find Sums isn’t a flashy, whiz-bang game, nor is it a dull series of flashcards, rather it is a pleasant low-stress game that encourages students to continually challenge themselves until they become proficient." says Tim Pelton.

The designers have used tools that teachers often use in the classroom to help children visualize relationships between numbers (e.g., ten-frames & hundred-frames) and master their fact families (practicing groups of facts together). "Addition and subtraction are fundamentally linked – but unless you use models like these to support children in seeing the connections directly, they may struggle to learn their basic facts or to develop effective mental math skills", says Leslee Francis Pelton.

Teachers might use MathTappers: Find Sums to support class discussions on important concepts and effective strategies and then to provide opportunities for individualized learning and remediation activities. "Even a single shared iPod touch can be enough to make this type of tool useful in the classroom."

"This App is not magic – it is a simple tool that can be used in the classroom, at home or even standing in line for a movie. We encourage parents to download and explore MathTappers: Find Sums with their children. Take a minute or two each day to ask them to explain their thinking and then challenge them to look for new strategies as they play the game. This kind of interaction will help children make sense of the math they are learning and set them up for success!" Says Tim Pelton.

Doug Pelton, CEO at HeavyLifters said, "We have sponsored the development of these MathTapper apps because we want to support education and help kids to succeed in math. We encourage parents and teachers to download each of our MathTapper apps and give them a try."

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad
* Requires iPhone OS 3.1.3 or later
* 1.8 MB

Pricing and Availability:
MathTappers: Find Sums 1.5 is free and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Education category.

Swivel-ittle

media_1282166322038.png

Los Angeles, California – Announcing Ordeal Games, the developer of Swivel-ittle, has launched a fun new game for iPhone and iPod touch users. The application is a block puzzle game that requires strategy to solve. Players must match color coded blocks with the correct circles to win. The game’s concept is reminiscent of the Rubik’s Cube and users are able to save their place in the game, returning to finish a level later on. The App’s use of accelerometer action and increasingly difficult levels makes Swivel-ittle an addictive challenge that provides many hours of fun.

Ordeal Games has proudly launched a strategy based, new block puzzle game App. Swivel-ittle gameplay will remind users of the wildly popular Rubik’s Cube of the ’80s, as they use the App’s accelerometer to scramble sixteen to twenty-four blocks then strategically try to match them up to the correctly colored, swiveling circles to win a level. Players interested in an especially tough challenge can work with two circles swiveling simultaneously.

There are fifteen levels of play in Swivel-ittle, each more challenging than the last, yet every level has the possibility of being solved when the right strategy is used. The game is suitable for beginners and advanced players alike, although it will likely take longer for those new to the game’s concept to get through all of the levels.

These are some of the fun features found in Swivel-ittle:
* Fun, challenging and HIGHLY addictive block puzzle game
* 15 levels of increasing difficulty
* Suitable for everyone, from beginner to advanced players
* Just shake device to scramble blocks
* Touchscreen controls
* Saves the last game so players can pick up where they left off
* All levels are possible to solve with the right strategy

If players are unable to solve a level in one sitting, they are able to save their place and return to pick up right where they left off when they return to playing. This is a special feature that players appreciate, as it eliminates them having to start a level all over again. Thanks to the number of levels and length of strategizing time involved in successfully completing each of them, users will be able to enjoy Swivel-ittle for a long time, marking the App as a high value product.

Device Requirements:
* iPhone and iPod touch
* Requires iPhone iOS 3.1.2 or later
* 0.3 MB

Pricing and Availability:
Swivel-ittle 2.0 is only $0.99 (USD) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Games category.

Then, it was the need of individuals to order properly when traveling abroad, based on their language or on a language they trust more," says Magenta’s CEO, Panagiotis Sidiropoulos. That’s where Foodictionary comes in and fills the need.

Covering translations in seven languages, Foodictionary contains a total of over 87,500 food and beverage terms. That’s more than 12,500 for each of the languages: English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Russian and Greek.

Magenta developers have created Foodictionary as an easy to use, standalone application that does not require an internet connection, once it is downloaded. Users merely type in a word to do a search, tap a selection from the database results and get the translation in the language they’re looking for.

These are some of the features offered in Foodictionary: International Food & Beverage Translator:
* Easy-to-use interface
* Translates more than 87,500 food and beverage terms for 7 languages
* Contains more than 12,500 terms per language
* Terms are grouped into categories
* Easy search function, just type a word and the app displays all entries including that text, just select the one you want

iWorry 1.0

media_1282166481033.png

Pringgle Media has released iWorry 1.0, their worry journal app for iPhone and iPod touch. iWorry serves to help users handle their worries and problems better than a normal notepad. Based on four main ideas, users jot down their worries in a list the moment they occur in order to get them out of their head quickly. In addition to the core functions described above, iWorry also has a list of web resources that educate users on how to handle their worries more effectively.

In iWorry, users jot down their worries in a worry list the moment they occur in order to get them out of their head quickly. While doing so, they can assign a tag to a worry for easier retrieval and filtering later on. Users also need to schedule a worry time. Only at the appointed time that they can view their worry list. "This serves to discipline users to worry only at a specific time." said Waihon Yew, founder of Pringgle Media.

When the worry time is reached, users go to a chosen worry place where they can be with themselves and think through their worries. For each worry, they can either delete it from their list if it is no longer relevant or note down their decision such as a solution or action for follow-up. A decision tag that summarizes the decision made can be chosen. "There are some time-saving features that users will find handy such as viewing only those worries associated with a specific tag and deleting multiple worries at one go." said Yew.

Those worries updated with a decision are captured in a logbook, which is separated from the main worry list. The logbook is grouped by decision tags. Within a group of worries, users can further filter the list by a worry tag. Those worries no longer relevant can be deleted from the logbook. "Users can also password protect iWorry to prevent undesired access to their private information." said Yew.

iWorry has the following advantages over a normal notepad:
* Scheduling of worry time
* Choosing of worry place
* Quick entry of worry and tag
* Worry list can be viewed only after scheduled time is reached
* Worry list can be filtered by a tag
* Deletion of multiple worries at one go
* Entry of decision and tag when thinking through a worry
* Logbook that keeps all reviewed worries for future reference
* Unlimited number of worries can be stored
* Password protection
* Web resources related to worrying

In addition to the core functions described above, iWorry also has a list of web resources that educate users on how to handle their worries more effectively. "We plan to add more resources in the future releases of iWorry." said Yew.

Device Requirements:
* Compatibale with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad
* Requires iOS 3.0 or later (iOS 4.0 tested)
* 0.7 MB

Pricing and Availability:
iWorry 1.0 is now available for $2.99 (USD) in the U.S. and is priced accordingly in other regions. iWorry is available world-wide from iTunes App Store for iPhone and iPod touch.

Scare Factor 1.0

media_1282167151261.png

Minsk, Belarus – oofsource today is pleased to announce Scare Factor 1.0 for iOS, their entertainment app designed to scare unwary friends, capture their reaction, and post it on Twitter or Facebook. On the pretext of playing an enjoyable game of finding the small differences between two nearly identical photos, a friend holds the device and stares intently at the screen. Soothing music plays as the game gives them time to think when, suddenly, they are subjected to a bone-chilling close-up of a screaming zombie. While the app runs on all iOS devices, the photo-capture feature works only on the iPhone 4.

A well known children’s game around the world, and a feature of many publications including the mass-market People Magazine, finding small differences between two side-by-side, seemingly identical photos is fun for all ages. Some incongruities may be obvious, but often the puzzle solver must look carefully to locate the number of differences required. It is this single-minded focus and expectation that Scare Factor exploits. Just as the player reaches their level of greatest concentration, a surrealistic, screaming ghoul assaults their senses and emotions.

Feature Highlights:
* Scare Factor 1.0 + HD + Frontal Camera Snapshot for iPhone 4 app now available
* Catch the expression of horror on your friend’s face
* Optimized for iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, and Retina displays
* Automatic frontal camera snapshot with iPhone 4
* Integrated Save Photo, Twitter and Facebook connectivity from within the app
* Colorful, highly detailed, color illustrations
* People love to be frightened – Scare Factor 1.0 is fun

The app is carefully designed to appear completely legitimate. Its non-descript screen icon reads only "SF", and on launch the player sees three framed, color illustrations. Beneath each is the parameter of each puzzle, as they are labeled "3 Differences," "5 Differences," and "7 Differences." The on-screen instructions advise "Select a Picture," and "Find the Differences." When the mark taps on one of the illustrations the game begins, and the picture appears next to itself, filling the screen. Thoughtful music plays in the background. If the player taps somewhere on a picture, testing a hunch, a red text message "NO" comes up underneath.

"Nothing makes people laugh like after they’ve been suddenly scared," commented company President Denis Berekchiyan. "Scare Factor 1.0 + HD + Frontal Camera Snapshot for iPhone 4 is scary, unexpected fun."

Language Support:
* US English, French, German and Russian

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch
* iOS 3.1 or later (iOS 4 tested)
* 17.7 MB

GoDesign easily stores, sorts and organizes information and images, allows for the custom creation and personalization of tear sheets, has a customizable database, maps out logical shopping routes and more. Design professionals can also work with their client and vendor lists, right from their device.

It allows users to record nine of their favourite sounds (catchphrases, sayings, messages, anything!), ready to be played back at the tap of a button. These ‘Soundboards’ can then be shared with friends just by bumping two iPhones together.

Developed by SenSeb Productions Ltd., after Director Sebastian Hamilton was surprised to find that no such App was already available, the easy to understand look and feel of the App, and the fact that it has unlimited uses, make it set to be the next big App Store success. It is now available to download for just $0.99/£0.59.

The user is initially presented with nine blank buttons, but in less than a minute they can set any photo of their choice as the background of the Soundboard, change the titles that appear under each button and record their own sounds which can be played back at the tap of a finger. Using the hugely popular ‘Bump’ technology two iPhones can literally be bumped together to share soundboards – so you can create a whole collection of sounds from your friends! There is also a free version available, allowing users to try out the PocketMe experience.

Director of SenSeb Productions Ltd., Sebastian Hamilton, said: "Soundboards are hugely popular on the iPhone – you can download many licensed Apps allowing the playback of sounds from celebrities, television shows and films – so I was amazed to find no useful App for creating a Soundboard of my own. I set about learning the details of iPhone App programming and the App is now finally available after months of planning and preparation!"

Sebastian continued: "This is the App I’ve always wanted, and I’m sure others will enjoy it as well. There are so many uses for it, both fun and serious, that I can’t wait to hear how people are using it. We are really keen to hear feedback from users, and have set up a Twitter account, Facebook account and website to interact with fans. We have also created a stop-motion YouTube advert, gently spoofing children’s television shows, which is already proving really popular."

There are around 200,000 Apps now available for the iPhone and iPad, so being successful is not easy, and coming up with an original idea is even harder. However SenSeb Productions Ltd. feels that confident that the unique features of PocketMe will appeal to all Apple users, and they hope success will not be far behind!

Oxford, CT – Announcing Personal Applets Corporation, the developer of Space Battle, welcomes a new app to the family for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad users. This release of Space Battle is the latest offering in the Space Battle app family, preceded by the Lite and HD versions of this block puzzle game. Space Battle can be played alone without any special equipment, or with two players, using Apple’s Bluetooth game kit.

Space Battle 1.1.0 is the latest block puzzle, speed and strategy game from Personal Applets. This launch rounds out the Space Battle family, which already offers Space Battle HD for iPad and Space Battle Lite (free) for iPhone and iPod touch users.

Pile blocks of various shapes into columns. Manage to fill a column and all blocks move a step to the right. You win when you reach the right-side of the field. This can be tricky business when an opponent is trying to reach the left side of the playing field! In addition to blocks that are called matter, players are able to use anti-matter blocks and neutrinos to destroy other blocks that are in the way or to fill holes that are unreachable by the regular moving of blocks.

In addition to great gameplay, Space Battle offers some pretty terrific graphics and sound effects, along with good background music to complete the satisfying game experience. And if you prefer different music, you can select from your own library. Space Battle is the perfect game to pick up when you have a few minutes.

Gorman was one of the first and largest pioneers of e-commerce car sales on the Internet in the late 90’s.

Based on the concept of a centuries-old astronomical instrument, Theodolite overlays real-time information about position, altitude, bearing, range, and horizontal/vertical inclination on the iPhone’s live camera image, turning the iPhone into a sophisticated viewfinder.

The result is a more accurate, more responsive display with amazing visual fidelity and detail.

"The iPhone 4 is an amazing sensor device, with improved horizontal and vertical GPS accuracy, a more robust magnetometer implementation, an improved 12-bit accelerometer, and a new MEMS gyro", said Dr. Craig Hunter, Theodolite developer. "Combined with the stunning Retina display and an advanced SDK, it’s an engineer’s dream device that is ideal for augmented reality applications. I’m pleased that Theodolite is continuing its role as a technology demonstrator, showcasing the latest and greatest in iPhone hardware and software capabilities".
