Algebra Touch 1.1


Redmond, Washington – Sean Berry is pleased today to announce Algebra Touch 1.1 for iOS, an update to his educational app for learning and practicing algebra. Particular attention has been given to the user interface, making usage so intuitive that solving math problems seems more like a game than an academic exercise. The app features: 17 interactive lesson topics, interactive practice problems, and the ability to create unlimited new problems. All actions and responses are touch activated and animated. Users may anonymously volunteer data collected by Algebra Touch 1.1 for use by a group of university professors studying how people solve problems using the app.

People are inherently curious, and derive pleasure and satisfaction from mastering new skills and knowledge. Algebra Touch enables the excitement of learning through simplified, interactive, programmed instruction, and employment of styling and functionality usually reserved for electronic gaming. The principles and problem solving capabilities of algebra are, in themselves, fascinating. By simply facilitating the process of discovery, Algebra Touch makes math fun.

On launch in landscape orientation, the app displays in large white numerals on a black radial gradient "3+5." Beneath is a gray band with the instruction "Tap the + to add 3 and 5." Tapping the plus sign runs an animation where the numerals are reduced in opacity, the plus sign disappears, and the "3" and "5" move toward each other with only an "8" remaining onscreen. The instruction is accompanied by a "Show Me" button, which will automatically demonstrate the app’s method of executing operations by tapping the operator. Immediately, positive reinforcement and further explication appears "Very good! Adding is a form of ‘simplifying" – that is, making the expression more simple and less complicated."

Feature Highlights:
* Appropriate for learning or reviewing of algebra
* For students of any age or gender
* Enjoy the wonderful conceptual leaps of algebra, without the tedium of traditional methods
* Drag to rearrange, tap to simplify, and draw lines to eliminate identical terms
* Easily switch between lessons and randomly generated practice problems
* Users may create their own problems or edit current ones
* Topics include: Simplification, Like Terms, Commutativity, and Order of Operations
* Additional topics: Factorization, Prime Numbers, Elimination, and Isolation
* Advanced topics: Variables, and Solving Equations
* Features external display support with optional 30-pin, external display cable
* Version 1.1 includes universal support for all iOS devices
* Version 1.1 permits reset of progress through lessons to start at the beginning
* Version 1.1 allows scrolling through all factor-pair choices

From here, the user may choose "Back" to review, or "Next" to continue. Further developing the concept of algebraic simplification, the app goes on to cover such topics as: terms, negatives, multiplication, order of operations, factorization, and crossing out (eliminating) terms in fractions. On this foundation Algebra Touch goes on to explore variables, and solving simple and complex equations. Future updates are planned to introduce the concepts of distribution and factoring-out expressions. And as an added convenience in group teaching situations, the app uses the device’s 30-pin connector to enable display of the contents of the screen on a monitor, television, or video projector. The app was made possible with support from the Percepts and Concepts Laboratory of Indiana University, Bloomington.

Device Requirements:
* iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch
* iOS 3.2 or latter
* 3.1 MB

Pricing and Availability:
Algebra Touch 1.1 is $2.99 (USD) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Education category.

Sleep Tracker


San Jose, California – Viaden Mobile, a prominent developer of applications for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad in the Healthcare & Fitness and Games categories, today is pleased to introduce Sleep Tracker alarm clock: sleep cycles & noise recording, an intelligent app that literally watches over users’ sleep. Everybody knows that sound deep sleep is essential for effective, full-time functioning throughout the day. As little as 30 minutes of sleep deprivation may result in drowsiness and lower productivity during the day.

Focusing on the problem of sleep deprivation, the Viaden Mobile team came up with a unique smart solution. The main outstanding feature of Sleep Tracker is its ability to record noise and light disturbances that happen at night. Sleep Tracker makes it possible to play back the noises and flashes of light and overlay the recording with the graph of the user’s sleep cycle. Having this information at hand, users are able to make appropriate improvements to their sleeping environment for a healthier and more energetic lifestyle.

A bunch of other handy options also contribute to the overall efficiency of the app. Using the built-in accelerometer of the iPhone/iPod touch, Sleep Tracker registers the users’ movements in their sleep and identifies in which of the three sleep phases they are. Thanks to this, the alarm will sound during light sleep – the best time to wake up energized and refreshed.

4 wake-up modes are available for the iPhone and 3 for the iPod. Depending on the lifestyle and habits, users may choose to be woken up at the set time or at the best time for awakening within the fixed time frame, with or without monitoring of sleep cycles.

The sound settings have been designed to be absolutely user-oriented. There is a selection of special tunes both for awakening and falling asleep. Users can also choose their own tracks from the iPod playlist to serve as wake-up or chillout melodies. A separate volume regulator is available for both kinds of tunes, allowing users to set different levels of volume for wake-up and chillout tracks.

"Creating this app we strived to give people the most valuable but such a fragile thing as healthy sleep," says Yuri Gurski, Viaden Mobile CEO. "Our app allows users control their sleep as much as possible and really have their say in the matter, be fully in charge. Understanding one’s sleep pattern is the closest a man can get to the mechanism of sleep so far – and this is what users can achieve regularly using our app."

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

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad
* Requires iPhone OS 3.1.2 or later

Given the variety of characters and dialogue, the fun-loving digerati will have no trouble putting one over on a close friend, family member, or lucky stranger.

Head Illusion 1.1


Potenza, Italy – Announcing that Yume Studio, the developer of Head Illusion, has just released the latest update for iPad users. Head Illusion 1.1 is an amazing, real magic trick, and it’s the first illusion of its kind in the App Store. This app is based on a real magician’s illusion that never fails to amaze. After staring at the app for about ten seconds, the audience will be left speechless when they see the user’s head magically grow or shrink. This illusion has been performed by professional magicians, in real magic shows and on television, and is now available for iPad.

Head Illusion 1.1 features include:
* Fun and interactive
* Simple gesture based controls
* Users perform a real magic trick, in person
* Professional illusion at a fraction of magic shop prices

To perform this amazing illusion, users simply open the app, swipe the screen to spin the spiral, either clock wise or counter clockwise, and hold the iPad in front of their face. To achieve the maximum effect, the audience must be at least five to ten feet away, and stare at the center of the spiral while the performer counts down from ten. For more dramatic effects, a slow count is used, with occasional brief pauses to remind the audience not to blink. When the count reaches zero, the user moves the device away from their face to reveal the illusion’s payoff.

Depending on which direction the spiral pattern was spinning, the audience will see the performer’s head either growing or shrinking. Users can intensify the growing illusion by opening their eyes more widely and "puffing" their cheeks, or make their head shrink even more by squinting and drawing their head down into their shrugged shoulders. Head Illusion 1.1 is a professional magician’s illusion that offers users a big payoff for a very small price. To learn more about this real magic trick, and other fun and exciting apps from Yume Studio, look for them on the App Store or visit their website.

RealCam SP 3.1


Montreal, Canada – today is pleased to announce the release and immediate availability of RealCam SP 3.1, an update to its bestselling camera application for iPhone. RealCam was one of the first and most feature rich camera applications on the iPhone in 2009. Now RealCam is set to regain its leadership in the camera application market taking to the maximum the hardware options available on iPhone 4. The new update includes support for the new resolution, toggle front and back cameras as well as flash on iPhone 4.

Beginning 2009, RealCam was the first application to overlap functions and controls in the live view screen. With an interface like "Point-and-Shot" camera, the user was able to see and control all camera functions like image size, self timer, grid and preview image, without changing to other screen or view. All was there, in the same live screen.

The success of RealCam had recognition from major publishers, like printed edition of Macworld in June 2009, were RealCam was featured with rating of 3.5 on page 34 as "App Store Selections". Web edition of Macworld also quoted: "The little improvements that Real Cam SP add to the picture-taking capabilities of the iPhone add up for a much better photo-taking experience with Apple’s mobile phone."

Over the time, in more than 18 month, RealCam got more than 10 updates with better performance, stability, new features and user requests. Each time iPhone got a new update, RealCam was adapted to take the maximum profit from the new features available on hardware and software.

With the release of iPhone 4, there are new hardwares available to help taking better photos and RealCam got the support for them: 2 cameras + flash and Torch. Now users can control the flash from inside RealCam. There is a LED function to turn ON a bright light to see in very low light or total darkness. Another feature included in the new update is the stroboscopic light indicator when using the self timer.

People looking for a replacement of iPhone’s built-in camera, found the answer on RealCam and continues to bridge the best of worlds: the convenience of a camera on the cellphone with the features on a more expensive and heavy "Point-And-Shot" camera.

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

Pricing and Availability:
RealCam SP 3.1 is $1.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Photography category.

Introducing Chem Pro 1.1


New York, New York – Introducing Chem Pro 1.1, the ultimate Chemistry application for the iPhone and iPod touch. Chem Pro is the only Chemistry resource you will need to excel in either AP Chemistry or General Chemistry. Chem Pro combines three great applications into one. An amazing lesson library containing a total of 80 videos that cover the entire course of AP/General Chemistry, eight incredible sets of flash cards, and two essential tools – a molar mass calculator and a unit converter.

Lessons: Chem Pro contains a total of 80 video lessons – over 31 hours of playback time. These lessons are dedicated to helping students solve problems, the most important skill to have if you want to excel in a Chemistry course. This is the perfect companion to have after you step out of the classroom. Problems are solved stepwise at a slow and easy to follow pace. These videos don’t just cover one example problem per topic, they cover all the possible problem scenarios that you would encounter in your homework or on an exam.

Only what is important to solving the problem is covered, and there are no times where the video goes off topic. Every Chemistry topic is covered, from calculating molar masses to drawing Lewis structures to weak acid/base equilibrium. If you want to see what a lesson covers without watching the whole video, just tap the blue arrow next to the lesson name and the details of that lesson will appear. All 80 videos are downloaded right onto your iPhone or iPod touch along with the application so you won’t have to download anything else when you want to watch a lesson. You can learn whenever and wherever you go. All the videos are designed specifically for the iPhone’s screen so they are not blurry or hard to read. These videos don’t come from YouTube either, so you can be safely assured that you are not wasting your money when you buy this app.

Flash Cards: Chem Pro contains eight sets of flash cards specifically designed for what any student needs to memorize for his or her Chemistry course. With these flash cards, you can easily memorize the 40 basic element names and symbols, the 20 common polyatomic ion names and formulae, the common acid names, solution colors (specifically for the AP Exam), and the 13 VESPR molecular geometries.

After you have memorized this material, you will be sure to have a heads up on your classmates when exam time comes around. Simply select what you would like to memorize from the list of flash cards, and you are presented with clean user interface removed of any distractions. Just tap on the flash card and it amazingly flips around to show you the answer. Just swipe back and forth to go to the previous or next card. It’s that simple! What’s even better is that every time you go to a flash card set, it automatically randomizes the order of the cards so that you can quiz yourself to make sure you know the material. This great feature can save you hours of time making index cards to memorize Chemistry concepts.

Tools: Chem Pro contains two essential and time saving Chemistry tools – a molar mass calculator and a unit converter. While it is important to know how to calculate the molar mass of any compound or convert common units, these tools can save you an enormous amount of time doing these tedious calculations. With the molar mass calculator, simply scroll and pick the elements in your molecular formula and hit enter! The app does all the work. The molar mass calculator is pre-programmed with all the elements that you would find in any molecule used in Chemistry courses.

The most common elements are conveniently placed at the front of the calculator for quick and easy molar mass calculations and you can tap the same element multiple times to get more in your formula. Have a molecular formula that contains parentheses? No problem! Use the parentheses buttons to easily calculate the molar masses of complicated molecules. Have a compound that is a hydrate? Don’t worry! Just tap the hydrate button to easily add water molecules in your molecular formula. The unit converter contains all the standard units for length, mass, volume, temperature, pressure, energy and time.

Simply scroll back and forth between the different categories of units. Type the number and the select the unit you want to convert and you are automatically presented with a choice of conversions. In addition, the unit converter supports negative numbers and scientific notation for those tiny or huge numbers.

Chem Pro was developed by students for students. It will not only teach you Chemistry in a way you won’t find in the classroom, but also provide you with several time saving tools you will love to use.
