Riptide Games has announced the release and availability of iLookGangsta 1.2, the latest in the series of successful iLook Apps for iPhone 4, iPhone and iPod touch devices. iLookGangsta is optimized for iPhone 4's retina display and front camera, though it works on all iOS based devices. iLookGangsta Free is ad supported, while the $.99 iLookGangsta is available for users who prefer not to avoid ads altogether.

"This app provides the perfect way for users to bring out their inner thug." said Brian Robbins, Founder of Riptide Games and lead developer. "Whether it's Grandma Gladys or your little niece Nicole, anyone can go gangsta with this app."

iLookGangsta features 20 custom gangsta items that users can mix, match and arrange on their photos. Users with an iPhone can take a new photo directly from within the app, and all users can choose existing photos already in the camera roll or photo library on their device.

Completed Gangstas can then be uploaded to Facebook, emailed to a friend or saved in the photo library for later. iLookGangsta is the latest release in the hit series of iLook Apps. iLookGood, one of the first real mirrors for iPhone 4, was released in June. iLookFunny was released in July. The next iLook App iArrPirate should be available soon just in time for Talk Like a Pirate Day.

Pricing and Availability:
iLookGangsta 1.2 is only $0.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Photography category.

HiBye Helps Manage Temporary Contacts

No comments:



Shannoga has just released HiBye 1.4, the latest update for iPhone and iPod touch users. HiBye 1.4 is a contact manager like no other app in the app store because it uses the device's native contact list instead of creating the headache of a second phone book for users to have to search through. The main benefit of this app is the timer feature for temporary contacts. This allows contacts to be archived or completely deleted after a period of time determined by the user. New contacts are added directly to the list via a "Dummy" feature that is unique to this app.

To quickly add a new contact without opening the app, users simply edit the "Dummy" contact that is unique to HiBye. Here they can also set their preferences for the timer, the timeout alert and other settings. When they're finished, the new contact will appear in their existing list of contacts. When the timer runs down, the user will get an alert and, depending on the settings they chose, HiBye will automatically archive or delete the contact from the list. Archived contacts are saved within the app so they can be easily retrieved if needed, and are viewable on a single list.

HiBye 1.4 features include:
* Apply a timer amount to your temporary contacts
* Edit the timer and categories at any time
* Get an alert when a contact is about to expire, to reset the timer or delete the contact
* See all your timed out contacts in one list; no more searching for individual contacts throughout your regular contact list
* Archive unused contacts, and retrieve them again later with one click
* Preset a default timer that will apply to each new individual contact that is added
* Create a note that will assist you in remembering that contact later on
* All contacts are saved in the iPhone address book, and are all synchronized and backed up into all other devices
* Add up to 8 categories to help organize your contacts
* Categorize all your contacts by group, location or category
* Add contacts from other devices such as computer, mobile me, Google contacts, or any other contact source that is synched with your iPhone
* Use "HiBye Dummy" to add phone numbers from your incoming/outgoing call lists or email

Contacts can be arranged by group (client, sales leads, suppliers etc), location, or category, making it easy to recognize who is calling, and what they might be looking for before the user answers the call. To make it even easier, users can attach notes to each contact to remind them where they met them or who they are.

Pricing and Availability:
HiBye 1.4 is only $1.99 (USD) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Productivity category. Promo codes are available for qualified reviewers. Please specify the website or blog you represent when making your request.

Greatly Improved Tool for iPhone App Discovery

No comments:



rapidrabbit has announced the release of version 1.2 of their AppStore meta-app "appbzr" (pronounced app bazaar). The new version includes many user requested features like faster browsing, more push settings, high resolution icons for retina displays and many more adjustments behind the scenes that improve the stability and speed of the app.

Every day hundreds of apps arrive at the AppStore, their price drops or they receive a feature that makes them very popular. It's increasingly difficult to keep track of these apps. As a result users have to read many blogs or they stop downloading apps at all. "appbzr" has, since its release, helped to solve this problem.

"appbzr" has been developed specifically for app enthusiasts and everyone who would like to become one. It will help to organize, discover and share apps and therefore is the ultimate tool for all app lovers. The fast and accessible interface makes browsing through apps fun again. Every feature can be reached with a single tap: price drops, new apps, hot apps, Top100, updated apps and lists. Even a search function has been integrated, that is directly tied to the iTunes Store.

"appbzr" does not limit the user to see generated lists, they also can compose their own lists and share them with their friends. To get them started, three standard lists are provided. Sharing of lists is easy - with a single tap the list can be send via mail to a friend or can be shared on facebook. Sharing individual apps works the same way.

Push messages play a big role, too. Every day the user will get an "appbzr reminder", that tells him how many new price drops, hot and new apps have been found. If an user sets an app on his wish list, he will receive an individual push message when the price for that app drops -a feature that is especially popular with "appbzr" users.

Here is a short overview about the app:
* Price drops, hot, updated and new apps only a tap away
* The Top100 of the biggest AppStore countries easily accessible
* Users can compose and share their own app lists
* Individual push messages for price drops
* Push messages inform the user about what's going on at the AppStore
* Integrated search function
* great user interface that leaves room for features to come

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

Pricing and Availability:
appbzr 1.2 is free and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Productivity category.

Vitamin-R adds Sound and Voice Notifications

No comments:



publicspace.net has released version 1.27 of Vitamin-R, its productivity tool for creative professionals. Vitamin-R is a collection of tools and techniques designed to overcome the biggest productivity challenges facing today's creative professionals: managing attention and maintaining motivation.

This latest versions adds sound and voice notifications to the timed break feature. Timed breaks are an important part of the Vitamin-R attention management approach, affording users much needed guilt-free breaks, while at the same time ensuring that these breaks do not become vectors for procrastination.

Vitamin-R breaks down large, vaguely defined tasks into a series of short "time slices" of between 10 and 30 minutes, each with specific, easily reachable and actionable objectives. The objective, time frame, concentration level and completion status of each time slice is logged automatically to the user log. Furthermore, the Vitamin-R Log Book also maintain hyperlinks to tasks in Cultured Code's Things and OmniGroup's OmniFocus to do list managers.

During a time slice Vitamin-R keeps you focused on accomplishing only this one objective and provides you with mechanisms for dealing with interruptions, poor concentration, etc.

Vitamin-R concentrates on getting started which allows you to break through the resistance of procrastination and creates a positive feedback loop of small achievements that get you closer to your ultimate aims. This greatly reduces the stress caused by looming deadlines and a lack of a clear direction, thus enabling you to enjoy guilt-free breaks in which you can pursue other interests.

Vitamin-R provides you with the "Now & Later Board", complete with FastType magic, to give you a place to quickly dump all those things that go through your head and allows to get back to the task at hand.

While Vitamin-R assists you in getting on with your work, it also keeps a customizable record of your progress that can help you detect positive, os well as negative work patterns thus allowing you find the way that suits you best.

Vitamin-R plugs into your life rather than trying to take it over. You can use it occasionally to overcome procrastination or mental blocks or re-organize your entire working life around the concepts that it embodies. It integrates with rather than trying to replace traditional to-do list managers, such as Things or OmniFocus.

Pricing and Availability:
Vitamin-R may be purchased for $18.95 (USD). Family, Business and Enterprise licensing is also available. Customers may chose to include a "forever upgrade" with their purchase.

Apple in Talks to Bring $.99 TV Show Rentals to $99 Apple TV

No comments:



Bloomberg is reporting that Apple is in talks with News Corp and other companies to bring $.99 TV Show rentals to their upcoming $99 Apple TV.

Viewers would be able to rent programs from News Corp.’s Fox for 48 hours, said the people, who declined to be identified because discussions aren’t public. CBS Corp. and Walt Disney Co., where Apple Chief Executive Officer Steve Jobs is a board member and the largest shareholder, also are in talks about joining the effort, the people say.

The rental plan follows an abandoned effort to create a subscription television service which reportedly failed because media companies didn’t want to endanger revenue from cable providers.
