[Mod] It!


Announcing that Jonathan Law, the developer of [Mod] It!, has just released the latest update for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad users. [Mod] It! 1.1 brings a new twist to a classic board game, letting users hange the configuration of the board with each move. [Mod] It! 1.1 comes with 12 game boards and a board editor so that users can create as many new boards as their device can hold. Up to 4 users can play via wireless Bluetooth connection, or one player can compete against one of the app’s 3 difficulty levels.

[Mod] It! 1.1 features include:
* Supports iPad
* Multiple levels of difficulty
* Up to 4 players can compete via Bluetooth
* Pass-N-Play for multiple players on one iPhone
* Table top mode for multiple players on iPad
* Helpful gameplay tutorials
* Single Player against computer opponents
* 12 built in boards to vary gameplay
* Board Editor to create your own boards to use in both single player and multiplayer

Gameplay is easy and the controls are intuitive, but users that need help getting started can use the tutorials to get up to speed quickly. Players roll the dice and move their game pieces, then take strategic action to slow down their opponents. The strategy involves changing the board by adding, removing, replacing, or even stacking board spaces, or "tiles", to force their opponents to change their game plan.

In case 12 ever changing game boards are not enough, users can create their own boards with the board editor. The only limit to the number of boards they can create and save is the amount of memory available on their device. In multi player mode, users can also share their custom boards with their friends.

This latest update also includes a Pass-N-Play feature for the iPhone version. This allows up to 4 iPhone users to play on one device, by simply passing it from player to player. The iPad version takes it a step further with "Table Top" mode. Since the iPad has such a large display, Table Top mode enables users to simply set the device on a flat surface, where everyone can see it and join in the game.

Device Requirements:
* iPhone 3G, iPod touch 2G (with Bluetooth), iPad
* Requires iPhone OS 3.1.3 or later
* 1.1 MB

Pricing and Availability:
[Mod] It! 1.1 is only $0.99 (USD) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Games category.

Kickin’ Fraga 1.0


Announcing Fraga-Games Ltd., the developer of Kickin’ Fraga, is proud to launch a unique, new product for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad users. Developed to work universally on all three iDevices, Kickin’ Fraga is the world’s first fully GPS controlled game app. The application’s avatar moves only when the user does, working solely by a change in the user’s physical location within a designated area. That means fun and exercise as a user runs around to play the game and progress the avatar. Kickin’ Fraga is only the first release in a planned series of GPS positional games from fraga-games.

Kickin’ Fraga is a new launch and a unique product offering. It is, to date anyway, the first and only GPS driven action game app available on the market. The only way for users to play is to move. The game has been developed for use outdoors. A player merely lets the GPS find his or her location to begin. From there on in, the avatar will only move in sync with the player, who must use his or her legs to get the game’s avatar around the area. There is a lot of fun to be had in this application, whose gameplay also provides the benefit of exercise and fresh air.

Users who download the Kickin’ Fraga app get to enjoy some great features:
* First and only fully GPS controlled game app in existence to date
* Great outdoor activity – exercise, fun and fresh air
* Universally designed to work perfectly on the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad
* Free and frequent updates!

According to the Fraga-Games design team, Kickin’ Fraga is just the beginning. The company plans on launching a series of other unique GPS positional games and are looking into developing multi-player versions that would allow users from all over the world to compete with each other.

Once online users are able to do all the same things they can with the paid for app. Users who want the app without adverts can still purchase the paid for version.

The new services are supported by the iAd advertising programme, and customers must have an active internet connection to use the apps. Once online they can use the app in full. They will also be able to interact with a discrete ad placed within the application. For US customers who prefer to choose an app without adverts Mobilinga is also offering paid for versions of all its products.

The move represents a bold evolution of strategy for the German based Mobilinga, who have successful top 10 products in a number of European iTunes stores. CEO Matthias Kose explains that, "The freemium and ad supported model is touching every area of business from retail, food and drink, entertainment and of course software. In our case, we felt the time was right to try an experiment to see just what customers prefer. We have a strong product and we’ve proven that people are willing to pay for it in quantities. That gives us the confidence to offer customers the same high quality apps with ads so that they can use it, in full, at no cost. These are not limited or demo versions, these are key products with full functionality. We think it will be fascinating to see what happens with free vs paid for. Exciting times lay ahead."

Debt Snowball Pro


Matthew King, leading developer of finance apps, today announces the release of the newly updated and improved Debt Snowball Pro. Using the popular debt snowball method, this app optimizes debt payments for the quickest approach to financial freedom. Debt Snowball Pro not only helps to provide relief from the burden of debt, it helps consumers save money in interest payments by knocking out debt faster than other payoff methods.

Financial advisors, firms, and banks, use and teach this debt snowball method for eliminating debt. With Debt Snowball Pro at their fingerprints, users can personalize and select the best payoff method for their debt.

The method is simple: input debts (including balance, interest rate, and monthly payment) and Debt Snowball Pro will help select the best payoff method. Once a debt is paid off, users apply the previous payment to the next debt, resulting in a snowball effect as the amount paid toward larger loans grows over time.

Debt Snowball Pro provides options for those who don’t want to be restricted to one method of debt payoff. Users can choose to pay off debts with higher interest rates first (to save money), or those with the lowest balances (for small, motivating successes along the way). Debt Snowball Pro will show just how much money can be saved by choosing these methods over making minimum payments.

Special Features:
* Add, remove, and update debts
* See date of total debt freedom
* Compare savings using debt snowball method vs. not applying snowball method
