Conferencia Launches – One Touch Conference Call and Smart Calendar

Folio3, a leading mobile software solutions provider, announced the launch of its new app Conferencia, a one touch conference calling and smart calendar app for iPhone and Android smartphones. Conferencia provides business users with access to all the right information about their meetings in one simple and easy to use app, whether they are in the office or on the go. It simplifies the process of joining any conference call from a smartphone, without having to remember or enter phone numbers and audio pins.

Today’s business professionals often have to attend meetings or make conference calls from their smartphones while on the move. Dialing into conference bridges, notifying colleagues when someone is running late, noting down action items, or accessing key information about a meeting can be quite cumbersome. Conferencia eliminates this hassle by automating these functions so they can be performed with one or two taps, instead of having to switch between multiple apps or remembering and dialing lots of numbers. It also integrates with major CRM platforms such as Salesforce and NetSuite.

* Agenda View – shows all calendar events from the device and CRM (Salesforce, NetSuite) calendars
* One touch dialing into conference calls
* Call or notify (via email or SMS) meeting participants with a single tap
* Calling card support – dial contacts and conference bridges using calling cards to save costs while traveling
* Record voice and text notes for any meeting
* Modify concall dialing sequences for unusual conference call patterns using an intuitive wizard interface

“As a frequent traveler myself, I know how difficult it is to manage conference calls and meetings while on the road,” said Adnan Lawai, CEO of Folio3. “While there are other conferencing apps, none of them focus on the solving the key problems in an intuitive way for the user. After using Conferencia for a few days, it’s hard to go back to using the default Calendar, Contacts and Dialer features of my smartphone.”

Conferencia automatically picks up all the user’s calendar entries and shows all conference call and meeting events in a convenient agenda view. Users need only to tap the call icon or act on the reminder to dial into their conference calls. Conferencia also allows users to instantly call, text or email attendees without having to look up their information in their contacts and to use calling cards to automatically dial international numbers. Users can even record and save notes against recently concluded calls and meetings, so action items and next steps are never forgotten. The app’s features include:

Conferencia 1.5 is Free and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Utilities category. There is also an Android version available on Google Play.

Clever App Helps Students Have Fun Doing Homework With Friends

HuddleUp, an app created by up and coming development company, HuddleUp LLC, is officially available in iTunes. HuddleUp is a unique app that allows users to digitally team up with their friends or fellow classmates and work together on homework and other like assignments. HuddleUp’s user-friendly design makes it simple and convenient for users to work with each other and tackle assignments. The GPS locater allows users to easily connect with their friends and form a “huddle” with those nearby.

“We wanted to create an app that helps students to complete homework faster by working together; an app by the students, for the students,” says Mayank Shah, CEO of HuddleUp LLC. “Through HuddleUp, users can collaborate with their friends to learn the material and finish the assignment, especially without the mistakes that are unknowingly repeated by those working alone.”

Once a huddle is created, users can assign each other certain questions, share an overall answer key, and maintain constant communication through chatroom discussion, all via their mobile device. Aside from HuddleUp’s easy-to-use interactive system, a setting called ‘parachuting’ is also featured, where users can wily escape from trouble and swipe their screen to hide answers and chats on their phone from any unwanted eyes.

“Students who work together on homework are statistically more likely to learn the material correctly, get higher homework grades, and translate that skill into better test scores. However, young students often lack transportation to reliably meet after school,” explains Shah. “HuddleUp can bridge that gap, empowering millions of students to take greater ownership of their education and carry that success forward in life. Not everyone has access to parents that can spend many hours each night working on homework with their kids. Thanks to HuddleUp, group cooperation on assignments has never been easier, or more accessible.”

HuddleUp 2.1 is Free and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Education category.

Gluten-Free Interactive by Delicion

Delicion has declared that everyone in the company, aka its owner, is sick of seeing “gluten-free” everywhere only to find that “gluten-free” generally means “disgusting.” With recipes that are truly delicious, Abby Berger hopes to bring a new light to gluten-free with simple, wholesome recipes and ingredients.

“Delicion is focused on taking the garbage out of foods by developing amazing gluten-free recipes. With the launch of Gluten-Free Interactive, Delicion has an opportunity to bring awareness not only to gluten-free foods, but also to healthier living. I think life is about the give and take, but our health should not be compromised. For so long we’ve been victims to unhealthy eating due to inconvenience and hectic schedules. With Delicion I would like to renew cooking at home and help focus on healthy eating while on the go,” said Abby Berger, CEO.

Yes, the Internet is full of food blogs and wonderful looking recipes. And some of them are actually wonderful and delicious. But what sets Delicion’s Gluten-Free Interactive app apart from the rest is the sleek functionality to make everyday cooking easier. Everything in the app is naturally gluten and grain-free, and the ingredients are ones you can truly feel good about – so you don’t even have to think while planning your next meal. Recipe photos are all the real deal, staged by Abby and her photographer.

If you follow, or are cooking for someone that follows a Paleo, vegetarian, vegan, nut-free, or dairy-free diet, you can use our drop-down menu to adjust most of the recipes to fit your needs! When you have 20 people over for dinner, you can easily change your recipe size, and nutrition facts are at your fingertips. While your drinking and cooking, no need to worry about losing your place, since you can cross-off steps and ingredients as you go. If you’ve had more than a few or you just want to stay on track, you can rotate your iPad and view step-by-step instructions.

All in all, you should just head over to Apple’s App Store and check out Gluten-Free Interactive 1.0. It’s $3.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Education category. So you’re essentially stealing from Abby at that price. Help her make back all the money she put into making this app so she can drink more champagne and get back to work on more recipes!
