Since launching, gamers everywhere have grabbed a hold of this app and its hilarious storyline.

Her parents come downstairs to say they’re going to run a few errands and they warn her not to have any friends over while they’re away. However, as soon as they walk out the door, Beth grabs the telephone and calls her boyfriend, Christian Skater. He comes over and the two are sitting on the couch watching a movie when they nervously begin to go in for a kiss.

As soon as the teens start to pucker up, they hear a car door slam shut and in walks Mr. Nolan. Instead of asking questions, he’s already filled with anger, so he charges after Christian who decides to jump out the window. Mr. Nolan then begins chasing him down the street.

Now the object of TakeOff Running is to dodge the angry parent for as long as you can. Whether you’re being chased through the neighborhoods, the marketplace or even the giant bridges, the only goal should be to get away and rack up as many points as you possibly can.

Anime Stickers App Brings Conversations To Life With Stickers

Launching today, the new Anime Stickers app helps people express their emotions with stickers. Joseph Liu and his team bring a whole new experience to messaging. The app offers a vast variety of anime stickers with each of them showing a different emotion, personality, pose, or activity. When chatting with a friend, instead of writing the user simply picks the emoticon he feels closest to at a particular moment and sends it. It is a much more personal way of communicating than plain words.

“When you look at the App Store, you’ll see that the majority of emoji and sticker apps uses the same stickers and similar graphics which isn’t really great for the user. That was the reason to develop the app – to make a better product which people will love to use.”, said Joseph Liu, Anime Stickers cocreator.

Being developed since April, Anime Stickers is the product of Liu’s desire to change the user experience of emoji & stickers apps and his teams’ passion for Japanese anime art and culture. During the brainstorming process the Czech-born developer noticed the low quality of high ranked emoji apps in the Apple App Store. That was the motivation behind making every detail of the app perfect.

Altogether the app features 160 stickers organized into 8 categories of 20 stickers each. Each category contains emotions and poses of one character which means that there are 8 different anime characters in the app. It’s also very easy to share the stickers with friends by various social messaging apps such as iMessages, Whatsapp, Twitter, or Facebook.

People who cannot find the right words to say can use anime stickers. This app can make online chat more personal and users can have fun exchanging stickers with their friends, family, and colleagues.

Anime Stickers 1.0 is Free with in-app purchases and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Social Networking category. Every user has access to 2 free categories and has the option to unlock one more by sharing the app on Facebook. The remaining 5 categories can be unlocked via in-app purchases for just $0.99 USD (or the same value in a different currency depending on the region). The ads may be removed for another $0.99 USD.

New iOS App that tells Temperature by Listening to Cricket Chirps

Sunny Slope Development today is proud to announce that their new iOS app, Cricket Temperature, is now available on the Apple App Store. It is available for iPhones and iPads. This is a fun little app that uses sophisticated algorithms to listen to cricket chirps and calculate the temperature from those chirps. It also displays a plot of the sounds that the device hears. Cricket Temperature also lets people adjust various parameters to see how it affects the signal of the cricket chirps.

This iOS app uses a fast fourier transform algorithm to change the signal from the time domain into the frequency domain, then looks for cricket chips in a very specific frequency region. The algorithm then looks at several frequencies that crickets chirp at and it boosts those frequencies. The app then uses the chirps it hears to calculate the temperature based on the formula of the number of chirps in 14 seconds plus 40. This formula give you the temperature in Fahrenheit degrees. The app displays and immediate temperature and also averages 10 chirp temperatures to display a fairly accurate average temperature.

Cricket Temperature allows children and fun loving adults to explore the world of sound especially crickets by seeing the sound displayed on a frequency plot.

Cricket Temperature 1.0 is only $0.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Entertainment category.
