Ideas for Concept
The challenge has been the same since the beginning of time. It takes good ideas to move the world; but good ideas, unless you happen to be Newton or Einstein, can be fairly hard to come by. But now, the challenge has been conquered with the arrival of Appitaizer’s Ideas for Concept app for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Ideas for Concept, available for $1.99 USD at the App Store (Productivity category), is a mobile idea-generation platform that empowers anyone, anywhere, to come up with breakthrough ideas that can be shaped into powerful concepts.
Ideas for Concept – a completely adaptable, mobile platform that gives users a better way to manage the process of generating, developing, and communicating their ideas – empowers users to, essentially, snatch great ideas right out of thin air. By providing word combinations that can feed a users’ intuition – and by offering the capacity to share ideas with other users and across Social Media outlets – Ideas for Concept allows users to find the next breakthrough idea staring them right in the face. The words for ideas are presented clearly on the screen of a user’s mobile device, and can be shaped by the user, in any way they see fit, into something more; something powerful.
Ideal for business professionals, creative types, high-tech developers, writers, students, entrepreneurs, inventors, marketers and just about everyone else who ever needs a hand in generating and communicating the ideas that could lead to the next big breakthrough, Ideas for Concept comes loaded with social networking functions that result in a veritable mobile think-tank in which insight can be easily gathered, and the advice of others can be conveniently leveraged and put to good use.
"So many times, people struggle to have good ideas – and when they do have good ideas, the way in which those ideas are processed often makes it hard for those ideas to lead to concepts, and action," said product manager Lena Kwon. "What we have done is to create an app that allows people to come up with good ideas; share them; and have an easy and convenient way to expound on them, with the help of others, and make them better. The feedback indicates that users, with the ability to easily generate great ideas and to share via Twitter and Facebook, can gather more momentum as they move toward the conceptual stage, because they have involved more people in the process."
Space Frontier, the already acclaimed civilization game which first launched in Asia, has made a stunning U. S. debut. Now, to show appreciation for the positive reception, Space Frontier will be available for a limited time only at the reduced price of $0.99.
A sci-fi flavored fantasy, Space Frontier takes players on a journey into the none-to-distant (and believable) future. Earth is uninhabitable, its resources depleted and environments destroyed. The only home that humankind has ever known must be abandoned – but where will the people of Earth go? This is the question posed to the player, who must find and colonize the newly discovered planets.
To ensure the continuance of the human race, players must discover the resources present on each new planet and utilize them wisely to complete the objectives necessary to clear each level. Building shelters and other facilities, maintaining clean air and water, and protecting their infant civilizations from threats are priorities which can’t be ignored.
Space Frontier executes its premise with richly detailed game play and plenty of goodies to tempt gamers. Grades are awarded for the efficiency with which each level is completed. Space Frontier also offers more than fifty achievements, which are used to determine players’ rankings on the global leaderboard. Thirty new planets to colonize and forty levels of objectives to complete give the game a satisfying number of of hours of play, while quests and unique equipment and tasks keep it fresh.
For those who haven’t already had the pleasure of playing Space Frontier, it’s the perfect time to pick it up. At 66% off its regular price of $3.99, Space Frontier is a steal. The game is available now for download in the iTunes App Store, at a $0.99 price for a limited time.
AKAON’s Planner S application brought a new social networking concept to mobile users. The application is a unique way of combining scheduling and calendar functions with self-expression, within an interface that allows the user to share their entries with friends across a multitude of platforms.
The Planner S "social diary" concept is ambitious. The application proposed opening a whole new dimension in social networking and building its own Planner S community, which would be integrated with existing networks like Facebook and Twitter. The ambitiousness of the undertaking was certain to either be the application’s key to success – or its downfall. Had social networking reached a point of maximum saturation?
The success Planner S has seen in the short period of time since its launch says no. The overwhelmingly positive reviews and quickly expanding community prove the Planner S has found a new niche – one that mobile users love. The application’s positive reception is linked to the synergy between its highly customizable interface with easy-to-tailor user entries and its streamlined simplicity. Sound-bite length entries make Planner S a fun way to keep up with friends and colleagues, while the user’s ability to edit and enhance their entries with various fonts, colors, skins, and digital "stickers" give their communications another layer of expression.
Planner S is also incredibly versatile, as it functions as a public or private diary, a full-featured calendar, and provides users with the ability to share their entries directly with Facebook and Twitter. They can also follow along with their friends from within the app, and meet new people through the Planner S community. AKAON hopes the application’s early success foreshadows its future, as Planner S gains momentum as a new way to schedule, socialize, share, and network.

Mehrwert-Agentur Thomas oHG is pleased to announce the release of their new app Face-Mnemo for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Where do I know that face from? What was the name of Peter’s new girlfriend? Anyone that has problems recognizing faces and remembering names needs the iPhone app "Face-Mnemo". The digital memory trainer helps to associate names and faces with the right person.
In a nutshell:
* New app "Face-Mnemo" has been released
* Successor of the popular app "Numbers-Memory (Numbers-Mnemo)"
* German app for the iPhone and iPod touch
* Provides optimal mnemo technique for names and faces
* Helpful lists for first and last names
* Index box system for storing mnemonic images
* Training module helps to consolidate images
* Development partner: memory coach Michael Gloschewski
* Price: $4.99
The following applies to the business as well as to the private sector: anyone that can remember names and faces is able to avoid pitfalls and as a result may gain sympathy and goodwill. The opposite is also true, as many of us know from personal experience: we simply do not remember someone’s name or where we know a particular person from. This can quickly lead to an embarrassing and uncomfortable situation.
However, it is anything but difficult to significantly increase one’s memory performance. In the summer of 2011 the Mehrwert-Agentur Thomas oHG very successfully introduced the mnemo app "Numbers-Memory (Numbers-Mnemo)" for the iPhone. The app provided the necessary techniques to easily remember numbers. More than 100 5-star reviews, multiple number 1 placement in the app category "Education" and placing in the top 50 of the overall charts are evidence of the impressive benefits of the app. "Face-Mnemo" is the next app in the series. It is specifically designed to remember names and faces even better. Memory coach Michael Gloschewski helped to develop the new app and provided the necessary technical know-how.

Turtle Fly 2
J2sighte today is pleased to announce Turtle Fly 2 v5.2, now available free for iOS, their vertical scroller arcade game that has achieved more than two million downloads. Players control the thrust and direction of a flying turtle wearing cola-powered jet boosters. After each flight, players collect money and achievements, which can be used to procure equipment and skills to improve their future missions. Turtle Fly 2 was the #1 Overall App in the U.S. App store from June 23 – 28, 2011. The immense popularity of the game is attributed to the many methods players can use to level up, and the exciting, vertical scrolling gameplay.
Played in portrait orientation, the game has two stages, "Fly to the Moon" and "Save Dr. Winston," with a total of 15 levels. Players can keep track of the amount of the turtle’s life remaining, main engine fuel remaining, and booster fuel remaining. The main engine is controlled by the engine button in the lower right of the screen, and orange exhaust is visible directly beneath the turtle. Strap-on boosters are located on the left and right and drop off following burnout. When all power is used up, the player falls back to Earth and prepares for their next flight.
During the turtle’s ascent he can collect diamonds, collect cans of spinach, recover a 1 life icon, recover a main engine fuel icon, or recover a booster fuel icon. There are also obstacles that must be avoided as he flies upward, such as: blimps, planes, birds, and thermal downdrafts. The turtle’s special ability, which can be activated by collecting three spinach cans, is that he is impervious to damage from blimps. The remaining six characters each have their own special abilities. The game is finished upon completion of the achievement in Level 6 (reach a height of 30,000 feet, winning $50,000).
Following each flight, players have an opportunity to shop for items that will help them. There are three kinds of items that can be purchased: Equipment (engine, booster, shell, fuel tank, engine fuel conserver, booster fuel conserver, an advanced flight controller, and a protective flying hat); Commodities (spinach cans, higher exchange rate for diamonds, and a VIP for a discount on store items); and Abilities (reduced air resistance, reduced wind resistance, and reduced damage from hitting obstacles). The first five Levels each have four Achievements, which pay a larger amount of money at each level: $100, $400, $1,200, $3,500, and $6,500. There are four kinds of Achievements specified at each Level: height, speed, duration, and height without hitting any obstacles.

Esther continues, "What makes this App unique is the fact that no other App helps parents create positive bedtime habits with their children. Also, we put a lot energy into the music and game aspects of the story as well as providing clear and colorful graphics." The App is sold in an English and a Dutch version and has been available since the 9th of December in the App Store for $1,99 (USD) or Euro1,59.

Calculator, from Byte Works, is a full-featured scientific calculator for your iPhone or iPod touch. It includes six calculators that change with a tap on the screen. This release updates Calculator for the latest versions of iOS while maintaining compatibility with older versions.
The initial screen is a scientific calculator with 14-digit precision that pays attention to the little details. For example, some iPhone calculators report that the natural log of 0 is infinity. This is incorrect; it is undefined, and this calculator says so. Other calculators have trigonometric functions that are ill behaved for very small arguments, but this one has correct numerical behavior.
The logic calculator supports four bases and several logic calculations. It is easy to enter, manipulate, and display numbers in base 2, 8, 10 or 16, and a single tap of a button converts between the bases.
Four different conversion pages support easy conversions between common Metric and Imperial units for length, area, volume, temperature, mass, weight and speed. This is very handy for science and engineering, but has surprising uses in everyday life, too. How many teaspoons are in a tablespoon? The Byte Works Calculator will tell you.
Features are important, but the Byte Works Calculator has lot of little points that have a big impact on ease of use, like a design that looks like it belongs on an iPhone; big, easy to press buttons; a delete key in case the wrong button is pressed; and picking up right where it left off if interrupted by a phone call-even in the middle of entering a number. This adds up to a calculator that is easy to use but has all the power needed for scientific calculations, programmer logic calculations and conversions.
