Tickl Launches As The Worlds First App For Rating Love Making

Whether starting a new relationship, keeping a long term relationship alive, or even trying for a baby, Tickl tracks and stores all of the statistics associated with intimate moments. For a bit of fun it can also rate performance based on the users ages, worldwide statistics and an incredibly complex algorithm, that took years of arduous testing.

Created by a small dedicated team in London, Tickl offers a simple beautiful interface to document all the intimate times that any couple spend together. Aimed at anyone over the age of 18, Tickl is truly revolutionary. With a ‘one click’ start, users simply need to pop the app under their pillow and then take a look after the session to see total time spent, how many calories were used and also compare statistics against previous sessions. Using the built in ‘tickl rating’ system (patent pending) users can also see a standardized rating for each entry and even use this to attempt to improve their score each time.

Key Features:
* Simple to use, beautiful interface and intricate Tickl rating system
* Tracks calories used
* Documents all the intimate times couples spend together
* World table shows which countries are ‘tickl’ing the most
* Post ratings to Facebook or Twitter

Security is of the utmost importance within Tickl; information is never shared with third parties and the app can also be easily password protected to secure information from prying eyes.

Tickl 1.0 is released as a Free app with an upper limit of 5 sessions for software trials, and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Health & Fitness category. Upgrading for $1.99 gives an unlimited use allowance, as well as a 99c fee to remove the ads.

The app can quickly sum up amounts given in any of 155 different world currencies, and converts the total into a currency of your choice. This app is perfect for managing your expenses while you travel the world.

Converting foreign currencies has always been a hassle. Say you spent 800 Euro on plane tickets to France, 420 Pounds on a hotel in London and 12,000 Yen on a restaurant in Tokyo. 800 Euro 420 Pounds 12,000 Yen = $? What would that be in US dollars? Thankfully, AnyMoney can do it all for you in a blink of an eye: it converts multiple currencies at once, and shows you the money.

The app can sum up amounts given in any of 155 different world currencies. Just plug in your values and the result gets converted to a currency of your choice. On top of that, the individual conversions for each amount are shown as well.

You can convert your transactions in just two simple steps (per amount). With no confusing menu trees to mess with, AnyMoney allows you to open up the app and get the job done as quickly as possible.

Adding a currency is extremely straightforward. Just tap the plus sign, select the currency type, and type in your amount. The same goes for the conversion. All you have to do is select your output currency of choice.

The Gamma Project has also taken the time to perfect this app by making behind-the-scenes optimizations. Currencies you have used most recently will be moved to the top of the list, allowing for quicker conversions.

Furthermore, you will notice that the app showcases Retina-ready graphics (while maintaining compatibility with lower-res devices). Finally, you can share and backup your transactions via email as plain text, CSV, or binary data. These files can then be imported to another device that has AnyMoney or AnyMoney HD installed.

The Gamma Project’s AnyMoney HD is the easiest and most efficient currency converter for the iPad. Building on its ease of use, AnyMoney HD was designed with an intuitive user interface. Adding, removing, and converting transactions couldn’t be any easier. On top of that, you have the option of manually or automatically updating currency exchange rates from around the world.

New Creative App Defaced Uses Cutting Edge Facial Recognition Technology

Defaced 1.0, the new iPhone app created by London based developers Apellio, combines creative tools with some of the most advanced features of the iPhone, such as facial recognition and augmented reality. This enables users to deface pictures of their friends and distort and enhance what they see through the lens of their camera.

The focus of the App is to allow users to be creative and have fun doing it.

“Rarely do you see an app which allows people to express themselves and be creative, whilst making use of the amazing technologies available on the iPhone,” said Apellio Creative Director Matt Varughese. “In Defaced we’ve created something really unique, fun and creative. People who’ve used it really love it.”

Defaced uses a unique two-step process. The first step is to draw and add images to a photograph of someone’s face. Users can choose from a range of images including haircuts, facial features, glasses and other accessories. The user can also draw using a selection of colours and brush styles and even has the option of zooming in to draw in detail. The second step is to combine the users artistic creations with the camera, super imposing them onto people’s faces in real time. Interestingly the app can recognise multiple faces through the camera superimposing the creation on all of them at the same time while tracking their movements.

On the surface its fun, light hearted and simple to use, but underneath it makes use of some very advanced technology. Defaced uses a real-time facial recognition algorithm to recognise faces through the iPhone camera. It then uses augmented reality techniques to distort reality and enhance what users see through the lens of the camera. With smart phones advancing at an alarming rate Apellio Creative Director Matt Varughese believes these technologies are well showcased in Defaced.

“Despite these technologies being used in many serious and important ways it is often not until the general public sees them in a fun and accessible way that they really connect with and understand them.”

Defaced – Picture the Fun 1.0 is $1.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Photo & Video category.

Sherlock Holmes 1 – Murder at the Diogenes Club Update 1.1 released

Sherlock Holmes 1 – Murder at the Diogenes Club by newcomer developer AppEndix LLC has just been updated to v1.1. The Update includes two new features (for free!), and a number of text and translation corrections in the 6 supported languages (English, Spanish, French, German, Italian and Brazilian/Portuguese).

New DIARY feature: the new Diary feature automatically saves the last text chapter to your notepad, allowing you to re-read the previous section for important clues you may have missed.

New Bug/Typo Reporting feature: the app includes 575 text sections in 6 languages. We do our best, but if you do find a misprint or incorrect translation, please let us know, so we can fix it!

Text corrections: we worked day and night with the original book translators to correct typos and translations that crept into the release version.

About the App:
Sherlock Holmes 1 – Murder at the Diogenes Club is both: a book, in fact a complete novel in the best tradition of the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle stories, written by renowned gamebook author Gerald Lientz and published in print form in 1988; and an interactive app, in which you attempt to uncover the secret behind the gruesome Murder at the Diogenes Club with the help of the great Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson.

Featuring a fully interactive interface with dice rolls, character sheet, sound effects and more, this unique e-book app for iPhone and iPad is available on the AppStore for just $0.99!

App Description:
Scandal shakes London’s most exclusive men’s club as Colonel Philip Sylvester lies murdered in the reading room. Can you uncover the murderer, the motive and the method? Is anyone among the respected but anti-social members a likely suspect? Can you rely upon Sherlock Holmes or his older (and some say “more accomplished”) brother Mycroft for assistance?

YOU are the detective in this intriguing first “gamebook” of the Sherlock Holmes Solo Mysteries series. This gamebook also includes a second, complete mystery adventure, IRISH STAR. Two complete Holmes mystery adventures in one app!

What is a gamebook, you ask? A gamebook is unlike a regular book. In a regular book, you read one chapter after another, from 1 to 2 to 3. In a gamebook, at the end of chapter 1, you have to make a decision (or roll the dice, or both); and your decision and the results of your actions determine what chapter you read on from there. In this way, a gamebook does not present you with just one fixed storyline, but splits into dozens and sometimes hundreds of different outcomes. YOU determine how the story goes on. And no two plays are the same.

Game Features:
– Dynamically adapting music
– Atmospheric sound effects
– Create your own detective or play the default character
– fully automated character/clues sheet and your own digital notebook
– Automatically saves and resumes the story where you left off
– All gamebook rules: virtual animated dice, page flip and random number table
– All the original artwork from the printed book in HD
– Game Center Achievements
– VoiceOver compatible (listen to the text!)
– Supports full iPhone 5 screen / iOS 6 compatible

Note: This gamebook is an original work. It is NOT the work of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. What’s New in Version 1.1
– New “Diary” feature: automatically saves the previous section to your notepad
– New “Bug report” feature: Did you find a bug or typo? Please let us know so we can fix it!
– Typos and translation corrections

Sherlock Holmes 1 (v1.1) is only $0.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Games category.
