MemoZy 3.0.7 – Popular Memo Pad App Makes Task Organizing Fun

DesignPlusD today is pleased to announce MemoZy 3.0.7, an update to their popular memo pad app for iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch devices. MemoZy is a gesture-driven app that allows users to organize their notes, ideas, and to-do lists. Menus are activated by simple finger movements instead of buttons.

The interface consists of customizable blocks that represent task categories. The default categories are To Do, Private, and Work. The blocks can be easily accessed, edited, and moved by tapping and dragging. In addition to displaying how many memos are within, these blocks can have their own title and color. To create a new category, users can swipe anywhere on the screen and a new block appears. MemoZy adapts the sizes of the blocks to allow easy accessibility and functionality.

Feature Highlights:
* Easy-to-use gesture-driven app
* Organizes categories by color blocks
* Simplified task editing
* Supports subtasks
* Export data to Email, Evernote or Print
* Customizable font and background texture
* Nine different color palettes

* Portrait or landscape mode
* Syncs with additional iOS devices
* Supports timeline feature to allow more detailed retrospect
* Includes sound effects
* Includes interactive tutorial

Within each block, memos can be added by simply tapping the screen. To change the positioning of each memo, users can simply tap-and-drag to a new location. Memos can be deleted or marked as completed by swiping either right or left. The subtask feature allows users to more thoroughly organize memos by highlighting the memo specified.

In the event that users prefer a more detailed report, MemoZy supports the TimeLine feature which lists each category and the date and time it was created. Users can backup/restore their data and sync with other iOS devices. MemoZy also has the ability to print and send notes via email and Evernote.

“The experience that MemoZy gives its user is refreshingly different.” says Sara Clayton of The iPhone App Review (Oct. 1, 2013). “Apps are starting to get fairly predictable, so when I started using MemoZy, I was surprised by how familiar yet new this app felt.” She adds, “As someone with a love for good design, I liked all of the customization possibilities that Memozy offers. Customization makes an otherwise tedious activity – notetaking – into something more enjoyable and even therapeutic.”

“MemoZy has the best usability and functionality compared to any task organizer app for iPhone and iPad,” says Dong In Lee, founder of DesignPlusD. “It is the highest ranked Productivity app in 12 countries. In the latest version, we have improved everything – including the design – to make it a more useful, effective productivity app.”

Languages:

Busy Shapes Helps 2-5 Year Olds Sharpen Reasoning Skills & Intelligence

Parents who want to sharpen their 2 to 5 year old child’s reasoning skills and awaken their intelligence in an amazing exploratory and evolving digital playground, can now download the new app Busy Shapes – selected as a worldwide App Store Editor’s Choice – from the globally-renowned educational development app company Seven Academy.

Inspired by the pioneering works of famed Swiss scientist and intelligence expert Jean Piaget (1896-1980), Busy Shapes helps children improve their ability to handle simple objects through a series of puzzles, in which they must change simple shapes and place them in proper holes. Along the way, the app responds to each child’s actions with positive guidance and motivation. Plus, the app’s digital exploratory playground regularly refreshes with different objects, which keeps children interested and engaged.

Special features include:
* A special kid-friendly design that compensates for the fact that when young children hold an iPad or iPhone, they often have a finger touching the screen.
* Passing swipe control that is essential for young childrens’ quick hands (i.e. even if a child’s finger reaches an object after he or she was already touching the screen, the object is still grasped as intended).
* A powerful Artificial Intelligence (AI) engine that supports each child’s unique learning journey. For example, the AI tracks the time it takes each child to complete a level, and increases or decreases difficulty accordingly.
* Customizable guided access, which prevents children from exiting the app by pressing the home button. This feature also disables selected parts of the screen for safety and protection.
* Real-time monitoring that provides parents with advice on how to guide their children, while it offers them progress updates via Apple’s Game Center.
* A seamless interactive game area that never blocks or limits children, and lets them freely access shapes. The menu is also neatly hidden away.
* A built-in shock absorber that prevents a child’s poorly controlled or disruptive movements from crashing the app.
* Automatic memory of a child’s place in any particular game, which makes the app an ideal complement to physical play and for shorter games.

As Jean Piaget points out, children are little scientists! commented Nathalie Gauthier of Seven Academy. A child’s thoughts are built through experiences that encourage him or her to engage in the reasoning process. Thus, we set out to develop a simple and effective platform, and provide a playground of fun discoveries. Busy Shapes’ innovative scaleable platform for evolving experimentation lets children take advantage of the time they spend on touch screens – so they aren’t just having fun, but learning every second of the way.

Added Nathalie Gauthier: Beyond Busy Shapes’ astonishing visual and audible features, children can also design their first reasoned strategies and truly take their budding intelligence to a higher level!

Busy Shapes is available now in the App Store. The app is available in: English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, German, Italian, Greek, Dutch, Finnish, Norwegian, Swedish, Danish, Turkish, Russian, Korean, Indonesian, Malay, Vietnamese, Thai, Traditional Chinese and Simplified Chinese.

Busy Shapes 1.0.3 is $1.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Education category.
