Spray Can – sketch, draw, paint takes the lead

With more than 6.5 million uploaded pictures in total and thousands of new pictures and comments every day, “Spray Can – sketch, draw, paint” forms a unique painting app, which combines art with social media. In 2009 “Spray Can” was released by rapidrabbit, originally designed for playing pranks by simulating graffiti spray can sounds, such as shaking or spraying. Due to its realistic sound effects and graphics, the app quickly became a biggie and took over the top download lists of North America and Europe.

Spurred by success rapidrabbit’s developers implemented a painting feature, adding additional colors and the option to share all the wonderful artworks via Facebook and Twitter. A new online gallery, plus a rating/commenting function, were the final touches before “Spray Can” cracked the US download charts’ top 3 and hit the top 25 several times.

After that constant improvements regarding drawing tools, usability and depiction in the online gallery have led to a renewed success of “Spray Can – sketch, draw, paint”, which meanwhile contains more than one million accounts. Today the app took the leading place in German App Store download charts among the free entertainment apps. The same results at international level are yet to come.

Spray Can 5.1.3 is Free and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Entertainment category.

CityHour Takes Aim at Tinder and LinkedIn With New Round of Funding

Following the successful launch of CityHour, its innovative business networking app that has experienced a 600% surge in users over the last two months, TrueBear Corporation today announced that it has opened its seed round of financing and is seeking a total of $1.5M. Initially backed with an Angel investment of $500K, CityHour has raised the standard of what business networking apps should do. In fact, a panel of experts at the recent Macworld/iWorld selected CityHour for their Innovation Showcase which featured only the best new products at the show.

Said Alex Lubinsky, Founder and CEO of TrueBear: “We believe the LinkedIn apps are a basic expansion of collecting contacts without the ability to truly connect via face-to-face meetings and as such, have missed a significant opportunity. Other social discovery companies like Tinder who have expressed interest in expanding into business networking may find it extremely challenging to go from the purported promiscuous to the professional.”

Developed exclusively for arranging face-to-face business meetings – a critical inability found in competitive apps – CityHour fills a tremendous need as business professionals and job-seekers look for effective networking tools in a slow-moving economy. CityHour quickly syncs with your LinkedIn or Facebook account, and a customizable set of search criteria ensures you connect to people with similar business interests and goals. It can even find a nearby venue in which to meet.

Adds Lubinsky: “Our biggest growth has come from users located in the major U.S. business hubs, but we’re also excited by the promising results coming from Europe and Asia. With this round of financing, we hope to quickly accelerate user acquisition and firmly establish CityHour as the premier business networking app on the market.”

Free to download and free to use, CityHour 1.2 is available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Social Networking category. Versions for iPad and Android scheduled for later this year.

RogueTrader – The first arcade trading game in the App Store

Acespire is delighted to introduce RogueTrader, the first and unique stock market simulation app for iPhone, modelled with colourful arcade-like graphics. It is based on virtual randomly generated stock, which makes it very easy to play: just ‘buy’ if you think the stock will shoot up or ‘sell’ if you feel the opposite. The player has the option to buy virtual coins to be able to trade more stock at once.

The player embodies Mick, a young ambitious trader, which is eager to prove himself in the trading world. The game starts in Frankfurt Stock Exchange, and the player gets missions from his boss, to make a certain profit and gain experience in order to be transferred to a more interesting stock exchange. When trading, the user will accumulate experience that will also contribute to that extend. The more he climbs through stock exchanges, the more volatile is the stock, which means bigger potential wins – and losses!

RogueTrader will soon integrate with Game Center, feature a multi player mode and a more advanced game play, as well as an Android version. Acespire aims to attract trading platforms or other financial institutions to sponsor the app, or white label it as a promotional tool. RogueTrader has been released on 19th of September. The following week the app has reached the UK Top 100 in Finance category, and being featured #2 in Finance and #3 in Simulation.

RogueTrader 1.0 is a free application available in Europe and all English speaking countries, exclusively through the App Store in the Finance category.
