Glogster iPad App Gives Learners a Key to Worldwide Knowledge

The Glogster iPad application offers the freedom to “glog on the go” for the first time, giving users a library of top-quality resources for inspiration, an editing platform for expression, and the opportunity to collaborate on an international scale. Available worldwide, Glogster’s iPad app does not simply answer learners’ questions, but puts a world of engaging resources at their fingertips.

“Glogster aims to become the standard for learning anytime, anywhere,” says Glogster Co-Founder Martin Santorcl. “We can’t wait to see the unique ways in which international learners and educators use the app to access and share knowledge.”

With this mission in mind, Glogster built the app with a focus on the Glogpedia library. Using the app’s sleek interface, learners can be inspired by over 8,000 hand-picked glogs and resources covering 80 topics across 9 disciplines. Glogpedia cuts to the heart of learning, allowing users to instantly interact with any topic through a combination of text, images, video, audio and more – all in the same place. A simple button lets users save glogs to their dashboard ready to be viewed, shared, or edited using the integrated creation tool.

The app’s enhanced editing functionality is all about expression – creating rich content whenever and wherever inspiration strikes. Users can mix multimedia from their own files, Glogster’s library of pre-designed graphics, or anywhere around the web courtesy of the powerful Web picker browser. Nominating a glog to Glogpedia puts users at the heart of the library’s content, allowing them to share ideas and expertise with 17 million learners and 1.9 million educators worldwide as part of the ongoing initiative to expand Glogpedia into a complete interactive resource.

The app integrates into English, Spanish and Czech system languages with more to be added, allowing worldwide users to consume content in a truly unforgettable way within an ongoing cycle of inspiration, expression and collaboration.

Glogster 1.0 is Free and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Education category. Members of the press please contact Alicia Lewis.

TrueHDR gets major update for iOS 8

Pictional today is thrilled to announce the release and immediate availability of TrueHDR 3.0, an update to True HDR, the popular iPhone/iPad app for high dynamic range (HDR) photography. TrueHDR’s latest release is optimized for iOS 8, and has added capabilities including greatly increased dynamic range, user-adjustable exposure bracketing, live histogram preview, adjustable highlights/shadows, timer, and a composition grid.

TrueHDR is designed to address the issue that cameras can only capture a limited range of brightness in a single photo. In other words, when people take photos of a scene that has a large range from bright to dark, they often have to choose between the bright areas and the dark areas. TrueHDR enables users to take multiple pictures at different exposures, automatically aligns the pictures, and then takes the best features of each and merges them into one picture that has vivid colors and details in both the shadows and sunny areas.

Feature highlights:
* Merge 3 exposures to capture much higher dynamic range than competitors
* Precisely control the 3 exposures via a new bracket slider
* View color coded histogram for optimal choice of center exposure
* Control focus and exposure independently
* Speed – capture and merging is now much faster
* Fine tune highlights, shadows, and vibrance using sliders
* Timed capture, thirds grid to guide composition, all new effect filters
* Full support for front and back facing camera
* State-of-the-art algorithms for automatically aligning and merging photos
* Convenient sharing features (Facebook, Twitter, email, Instagram)

TrueHDR 3.0 is available at $1.99 (USD), worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Photography category. Promo codes for review purposes are available upon request.

kEmoji brings themes, custom emoji, and more via iOS 8 keyboard

Atlantia Software today unveiled kEmoji, an all new iOS 8 Custom Emoji Keyboard. The app improves upon the default emoji keyboard by adding the ability to apply new color themes, a contextual search feature that produces suggested emoji based on text you’ve already typed, and even provides several packs of custom “kEmoji” (emoticons and GIFs that go above and beyond the Unicode emoji) that can be used in any app, directly from the keyboard. To round things out, users will find a new “Top Emoji” section that tracks the emoji you’ve used the most over time, a list view for seeing the short description of any emoji, and even standard alphanumeric keyboards that are also theme-able.

kEmoji was created by a two-person team consisting of developer Nick Bonatsakis and his counter-part product visionary, designer, and marketer, Will Philbrick. “As soon as we saw the announcement around custom keyboards in iOS 8, we knew we wanted to take the default emoji keyboard to the next level”, said Philbrick when asked about the motivation behind the app. “We felt strongly that people would love personalizing their keyboard experience, so we built a really awesome theme builder and packed the app full of great pre-built themes as well.

Additionally, we saw how limiting the standard Unicode emoji set can be, so we created a very convenient system for using totally new emoji and GIFs that we’re calling ‘kEmojis’ so that we can provide a virtually limitless number of new emoji over time.” Regarding some of the usability improvements, Bonatsakis added, “I really love the contextual search and Top Emoji sections in particular. To me, its all about how we can make it easer for a user to find the emoji they want for a particular message and get out quickly.”

kEmoji 1.0.1 is only $0.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Utilities category.

AirBoy soars onto the Mobile Market

The Phoenix Digital Group today is proud to announce the release of AirBoy 1.0, their new game title for iOS and Android devices. AirBoy is a tap-to-fly adventure game that combines classic side-scrollers with physics games and billiard style problem solving coupled with beautiful story book graphics.

AirBoy has a massive sweet-tooth, fully-functional card-board wings and an unbeatable sense of adventure! AirBoy may have been sent outside to play, but all he can think about are do-nuts and cake; nothing will stop him from getting them! Maneuver AirBoy through each level while collecting do-nuts, finding and collecting the hidden cupcakes and knocking out enemies. You will need to use Grandpa’s teeth, which are scattered all over the world, as a weapon and tool in each level by hitting them at the right angle to make them fly and bounce into enemies, obstacles, cupcakes, do-nuts, or other teeth. You can use the teeth to help you collect the items you need in each level.

Every new world you unlock will have it’s own unique challenges such as lava with fireballs, slippery ice, low gravity as well as their own unique enemies such as hedgehogs, bats, fish, beetles, aliens and so on. AirBoy is an addicting game with cute characters, beautiful environments, fun gameplay and catchy music.

AirBoy is loaded with features like simple touch controls. Simply tap the screen and Airboy flaps his way into the sky. The controls may be simple, but the challenge isn’t. The player must approach objects at the correct angle to solve puzzles and collect the sweets. AirBoy’s adventure takes him everywhere! Deep beneath the ocean, into frozen wastelands and even to the moon! Each unlock-able world presents its own unique challenges and/or physics.

AirBoy is the brainchild of Travis Tobias and Eric Ewing: an award-winning duo of animation talent and design know-how. Pairing Travis’ original design work with Eric’s love of problem solving was a no-brainer, and together they formed the Phoenix Digital Group after having worked together in a variety of media including feature films. AirBoy is the first release from the team, who are already working on a follow-up. The guys aren’t done with AirBoy though, the two have plans to continue supporting AirBoy in the future with new content updates for as long as people want to play them.

AirBoy 1.0 is only $0.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide through the App Store in the Games category. There is also an Android version available on Google Play.

Photosane 1.0 – Get the missing Camera Roll back on iO8

If you miss the Camera Roll in the Photos app which disappeared in iOS8, Photosane is here to help you get it back. Photosane v1.0 was released today in the App Store. Photosane works just like the old Photos app with some extra features and is much faster. Photosane was designed to be the simplest and fastest photo library manager possible, with these design objectives:

* Classic “Camera Roll” view
* Super-fast browsing
* Non-destructive photo editing
* Easy album management
* Swipe left/right or up/down for next photo
* Simplicity before all
* Quick navigation to the top and bottom of the Camera Roll

The single biggest problem people have had with the iOS8 update, is the missing Camera Roll in the Photos app. We realized that Apple would not fix this until iOS 8.1, so decided to quickly create a professional grade Camera Roll app. It took Apple 88 days between the iOS 6.0 and 6.1 release and it took 107 days between the release of iOS 7.0 and 7.1. Since Apple will be introducing Apple Pay in iOS 8.1, it might even take longer this time as they want to be confident that it works to a 100% and Apple can’t afford to make any mistakes with Apple Pay. If you want the Camera roll back and can’t wait three months, Photosane is your friend.

The app was designed to have non-destructive editing, so saving an edited photo creates a new copy in the photo library and the original photo is not touched. In this way it is easy to make many fun edits of the same photo. The edit functionality is quite advanced and also has some simple fun effects. The app has a quick navigation to the top and bottom of the albums with just a tap. This is extremely useful when you have thousand of photos in your library.

Photosane does not keep its own database of photos, so it manages the built in Photo library, the same library as the Photos app is using. All changes to photos in the Photosane app are instantly mirrored in the Apple Photos app. Album management has been a hassle in the Photos app, so we decided to simplify it. When you view a photo, you can just add to one or more albums with a tap or create a new album on the fly.

Photosane 1.0 is only $0.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Photo & Video category.
