TimeTag

TimeTag stands out from the competition in that ease of use was a primary design objective. Instead of convoluted start & stop buttons, which can be confusing, the app features a giant button that’s easy to tap. Activities are organized by tags which can further be organized into categories. At the end of each day, the user can quickly glance at the records to see where time was spent, without manual addition of time spent per activity.

The export gives the user a clean, simple list of their records which can be exported as a webpage, or as a CSV file to use in any spreadsheet application. As most people have their preferred invoicing templates, the export is devoid of unnecessary markings and theming.

The game was conceived by Petr, the Silly Tale’s programmer, under the impression from Brodie Lockard’s mahjong. Five year old Petr’s son was trying to disassemble everything in the house.

Catch the Monkey

media_1328107992302.png

Catch the Monkey launches today in the Apple App Store. This innovative game bucks the action-game trend of using violence to overcome obstacles. In Catch the Monkey, adorable and curious monkeys invade an elderly farmer’s field. Players help remove them by using a variety of humorous and non-violent tools. Game developer Mirthwerx found this radical approach so conceptually difficult, that it almost didn’t happen.

"We’re steeped in a gaming culture of violence. It was hard to break free and think of new solutions," says co-designer Thomas Henshell. "Even mobile hits considered family-friendly contain cartoon violence. Plants vs. Zombies has shooting of zombies, while Angry Birds has the crushing of pigs."  

Artist and co-designer Alex Lin recalls the early design dilemmas, "The monkeys are like toddlers: cute, curious, and always getting into trouble. With this artistic direction it was clear the player cannot harm the monkeys. We discarded numerous concepts before one day discovering the key while observing a parent. When toddlers are doing something they shouldn’t, parents will shake a rattle to shift the child’s attention. Parents have been using distraction for centuries!  With this distraction concept, we knew we could move forward and make a great game!"

But how would players feel about a non-violent action game? Thomas responds, "We know people may think non-violent means non-fun. This was a huge hurdle. It wasn’t about merely coming up with non-violent solutions, but coming up with fun and engaging non-violent solutions. The distraction mechanic makes for an enjoyable experience that can get quite intense. Yet, beneath the cute, funny visuals, is a game of serious depth. There is plenty of challenge even for the veteran gamer."

Elf Defense

media_1328108051854.png

Elf Defense 1.0.1, a stunningly executed, brand new tower defense game from veteran developer JellyOasis, sets a new standard with exceptional graphics and game design. The premise of the game, well-communicated in both the game’s narrative cut scenes and within the gameplay itself, is simple. The elf nation has been generous with their human neighbors, extending their magical skills and resources. But their generosity has only incited greed in their former allies. Now, the human army is committing an unforgivable intrusion – attacking the elves in their own settlements.

Players strategically position elven and mercenary forces along the path of assault in order to protect the elven castle. Each stage requires defeating a predetermined number of enemy waves, without allowing the fortress to be overcome. As the game progresses, greater complexity is introduced as players gain access to more combat unit types, special soldiers for higher, and items. The human forces and their allies grow more sophisticated in their attacks as well, creating balanced, satisfying pacing throughout the game.

Elf Defense faces stiff competition in the thriving tower defense genre, but JellyOasis has little to worry about. The unique character design and superb HD graphics set the game apart, and Elf Defense boasts charm that is not just skin deep. In addition to the unique block-like character design, the vibrant palette of colors, and charming, detailed animation, the game play itself is sure to build a loyal fan base.

Last Target

media_1328108175847.png

Last Target is now available exclusively for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. Last Target is a highly addicting game where players need to navigate a pellet through a course consisting out of countless platforms and bricks headed into deep space – just by tilting the iPhone or the iPad. The uniqueness of the new game of skill: There is no end as the world rises up infinite to the space.

In Last Target the player controls a ball, rolling over platforms floating around in the space. Countless junctions and bricks are connected with each other – to a construct full of deadly deep hollows, stretching in every direction. On the way not only the omnipresent chasms are a big problem. There are also lots of sabers swinging in deadly circles, moving opponents, cannons and other types of enemies, just making the life difficult.

Jan-Niklas Freundt, with the age of 16 one of the youngest app developers around the world, worked 8 months on Last Target: "The biggest challenge is to stay alive as long as possible while avoiding all the obstacles. There are no levels, the journey is infinite and different every time you play."

Everywhere on the platforms the player can collect so called "Uranium". With sufficient "Uranium" it is possible to upgrade abilities, buy power-ups and even new pellets. This will allow the player to add a bright shining shield to his pellet, get higher scores in less time and make it even possible to resurrect after death.

To start with, users are able to choose from a variety of alarms including music from their own iPod; tunes selected from provided music; personally typed text-to-voice message; or a personally recorded voice. While a user’s sense of hearing is addressed by the alarm, their sense of sight is appeased when they upload a favorite photo for display when the alarm goes off. An example of how this duo might work together would be the recording of a child’s voice and a photo of the child being the first things heard and seen as a user wakes up. It makes waking up easy and happier.

Custom Alarm Clock Lite also acts as a flashlight when shaken, and automatically finds local weather conditions, displaying temperatures in the user’s choice of Celsius or Fahrenheit.

PrestoBingo Shapes

media_1328113849119.png

Spur Design, a nationally recognized design and illustration studio, has released a new ipad app, PrestoBingo Shapes, which teaches shape recognition and counting. It is designed for children ages 2-6. Illustrated by Joyce Hesselberth, PrestoBingo Shapes takes a modern approach to app design.

PrestoBingo Shapes provides an introduction to geometry for children. Circles, diamonds, ovals, rectangles, semi-circles, squares, triangles, trapezoids, and triangles are explained and identified. Each screen presents a different shape-finding puzzle and kids are verbally and visually prompted to click on the shapes. Animations throughout the app explain geometric forms concisely, and encourage children to see shapes in a unique way. When prompted for more information, the apps narration explains, " A trapezoid is a triangle with the top cut off. It can be a tent in the woods, or a lampshade, or a ship sailing away."

The premiss for designing this app was the simple idea that we can find shapes everywhere. As creator Joyce Hesselberth explains, "A square isn’t just a square. It’s a present, a building, a jack-in-the-box, a window. Sometimes it’s even something silly, like my brother’s head, or a balloon that’s not quite right. Shapes are everywhere."

Importing 3D models into GLSL Studio is made simple with iTunes File Sharing. The GLSL Studio code editor also sees a significant update in 1.02 gaining full code completion.

GLSL programs are run directly on the graphics hardware allowing full control over how geometry and pixels are processed. GLSL Studio not only enables the creation, editing and compilation of shader programs but also exposes device capabilities such as multi-touch and live video streaming to them allowing for things such as realtime video filters to be created.

TypeWay

media_1328114291096.png

Typing with 10 fingers is faster and more comfortable by a self adapting key configuration: TypeWay continuously adapts the virtual keyboard to individual hands, hand sizes, hand positions, and typing habits. That supports fast touch-typing for note taking and the flow of thinking and writing, as in education, business, or journalism. The innovative app makes use of iPad’s multi-touch capabilities.

The first self-adapting multi-touch keyboard TypeWay 1.0 is available on market. For typing with all ten fingers this utility app is an innovation, which fits to iPad’s technology of sensing 10 touches simultaneously (on iPad even up to 11 touches are possible). Conventional keyboards require a discipline to tap in linear rows, however for example pinky finger and ring finger would prefer relative short distances. Hands are individual in size, shape, and typing habits, and may shift their position. This app uses information about touch events in several algorithms to control and refresh the configuration of keys continuously (patents and patents pending). From user’s perspective the concept is in a new way simple.

The app allows fast typing e.g. for note taking, protocols, lesson-scripts, interviews, mails, and basic text editing. The keys adapt to small hands of children, pupils, and scholars. Blind typing eases the closely connected processes of thinking and writing for students and journalists, and might increase the productivity of professionals.

Sit back and relax and let technology make your life easier. Football squares on paper is old school. You want new school.

Start by deciding how much each square will cost. Championship Squares then figures out the total amount available and how much each quarter is worth – or you can edit individual quarters. Now add team names and logos (logos saved from the web into your photo library, for example). Tap a square to add a name and Championship Squares copies it automatically for you to paste in any other square – just double tap. Wow, that’s easy! Once the entire grid is filled in you can add randomly generated numbers and find out who is looking good and who got the 5’s. Collecting what’s owed is still on you but you can keep track with Championship Squares – select a name and then tap ‘Paid’!

Scientific Calculator B1

MTbrain IOS Development today is proud to announce version 2.9 of the Scientific Calculator B1, a scientific calculator for iPad/iPhone/iPod touch. The main design pattern was to create a powerful, but easy and intuitive to use Scientific Calculator which ensures the continuous workflow from ‘end-to-end’. Unlike many ‘calculate & forget’ calculators, this calculator supports the transparent and reusable operation as it is necessary in science, school and office. Beside many functional improvements (a huge set of physical/chemical constants) and interface improvements the B1 comes along with a complete new way of realizing arithmetic bracket function – called ‘Formula Injection’.

Werner Schmidtberg (Chief Developer, MTbrain): "The typical scientific way of solving complex questions or calculation is to cut them in smaller, more transparent and less error prone pieces. That’s exactly the model behind formula injection, which we have developed for this version.It is part of the educational design pattern of the Scientific Calculator B1.It lets the user break operations into independent, logical pieces which can be injected later into a running calculation. Utilizing bracket keys and bracket function is no more longer necessary."

The calculator itself uses the arithmetic Infix-Notation system which has been developed by MTbrain from the ground up. A wide range of mathematical operations and of common conversion functions are supported, including logarithms, trigonometric functions, roots and arbitratry exponents. During the whole operation the calculator displays the complete calculation path for each single calculation step. Operators and Brackets are checked and set automatically. The final results and formulas can be persist in the flash memory and as a full record in the internal database as well. The records can be commented for later documentation and can be reused in every detail to continue later operations. The Database records can be sent via email in normal text format for the universal use in other documents.
