Find Apps Like a Pro – App Search Engine Knicket Launched

Berlin, Germany – With more than 1 million apps in each of the major app stores, the search for apps gets more and more challenging. App search engine Knicket enables the user to find the best apps and games with the help of precise, fast algorithms and filters. It works with an asynchronous database to provide a near real-time search experience. Knicket allows to search the app stores in depth, before downloading or purchasing an app.

The initial idea was to help app developers do research before starting a new project: “First it was supposed to be a developers search engine for apps, but I learned that almost everyone had this moment, where one can’t find the app that matches his needs. That’s what Knicket is now for: to narrow down endless result lists to find the app or game you want,” says founder and app developer Uwe Flade (Nighty Night! / Little Fox Music Box / more than 1m purchases).

Knicket has a variety of features and filters to help users find the best app to suit their need. The priceslider allows users to select a price range while the age filter allows users to select an age range, such as apps made just for kids. Users can also filter through ratings, so they will only see applications with a minimum rating of 3,5, 4, or 5 stars. To get more specific, users can search tags to find exactly what kind of app or game they want.

Another unique feature of Knicket is the “in-app-purchase” filter. It allows to exclude applications that have (sometimes hidden) purchases within the games/apps. After using the filters, results can be sorted by downloads, rating or relevance.

Users can find apps related to other apps through the Appmesh. It recommends certain apps based on one that a user can select. The makers of Knicket have developed their own algorithm that offers similar content and will be improved further step by step.

As new apps are released every day, Knicket recommends checking back daily to find new and cool apps in their app lists, which are getting updated constantly to present inspiring and trending apps in all categories. Knicket also features a magazine with app reviews and tech news.

Knicket has been released November 2013 and is optimized for desktop and tablet. The mobile phone version will be ready January 2014. For further information please contact us via the contact page of Knicket.

The Three Bears and Goldilocks by Blue Quoll – Now on the App Store

Gold Coast, Australia – The Three Bears and Goldilocks by indie developer Blue Quoll is now available as Universal App for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch on the AppStore. This is the third instalment in the series ‘ReTold Tales” following number one book App, in Italy, Mr Wolf and the Ginger Cupcakes and Puss in Boots. With The Three Bears App, Blue Quoll re-invents and rejuvenate this timeless classic with the style, whimsy and care for details that have become trademarks of all Blue Quoll productions.

Blue Quoll’s version of Three Bears departs quickly from the traditional tale after the common beginning introducing a naughty Goldilocks who finds herself in a series of humorous situations when the three bears come from their usual morning stroll and find her snoring on one of their beds. Amongst all the fun however the story talks about cultural diversity and language barriers and eventually of acceptance and joy of sharing.

Aimed at children 2 The Three Bears and Goldilocks can be read and experienced like a traditional picturebook or it can be listened to as it is fully narrated in eight different languages, English, Italian, Spanish, French, German, Chinese (traditional, simplified) and Japanese. The Three Bears and Goldilocks is also delightfully interactive presenting several “hot spots” on each page that when tapped trigger a sound or a speech balloon that is fully narrated in every language as well.

‘We have improved notably the functionality of our ‘PopUp Tap and Discover’ interactivity by having the speech balloons narrated in each language’ says Blue Quoll director Vincenzo Pignatelli. ‘Since we introduced this form of interactivity in version 2.0 of Mr Wolf, response has been very positive however having the speech ballons narrated has the obvious advantage that now younger children who can not read yet can enjoy by themselves the whole App experience..

The Three Bears and Goldilocks is illustrated by emerging Melbourne based illustrator Laura Wood. ‘We collaborated with Laura on this project because we immediately fell in love with her whimsical style’ says Lucia Masciullo, head illustrator at Blue Quoll and author of Mr Wolf and Puss in Boots illustrations. ‘Her wonderful blend of traditional and digital techniques is a match made in heaven for the stylistic look and feel of our Apps’.

With over 250000 downloads and more than 85% of five star reviews, the ReTold series initiated by Blue Quoll in 2010 has become one of the most loved series of interactive picture-book by parents in several different countries. The Three Bears and Goldilocks improves even more on the formula offering translation and narration in 8 languages and a delightful interactivity that enhances the story without hindering the reading experience.

The Three Bears and Goldilocks App is released in the Book Category and Educational Category and it is specifically designed to fulfill Apple requirements to be presented as an ‘App for Kids’ meaning that I’d does not present in App advertising and all the sections that might take a young reader out of the App are protected by a parental gate

Innovative Mobile Social App Connects Students, Teachers: Classting

Seoul, Korea – A new social media application for iOS, Android, and the web has launched, designed to change the way people communicate, yet again. This time, however, socializing isn’t purely recreational. It’s also educational.

Classting CEO Dave Cho, a former elementary school teacher from South Korea seeks to revolutionize the way teachers, students, and parents interact with his new application. Noting that students were reluctant to add teachers and parents to their social media profiles, and their clear preference for that method of communication over clunky, outdated school websites, Cho struck upon an idea.

Classting embodies all of the innovations which have made services like Facebook popular, putting them to work for a new purpose. Users join Classting, and then search for or create their virtual classroom. Here, instructors can create instant class notices, counsel students privately, and share files. The class newsfeed keeps everyone up to date and allows for comments and feedback. Users can create their own home profile, to share their thoughts and photos, as well.

Not only are classmates more connected than ever with Classting, they can also connect with other classes, anywhere in the world, by requesting an “exchange program” through the “Ting” feature. Perhaps a Japanese language teacher in the United States would like to pair her students with virtual pen pals in Japan. Classting is designed to make that effortless, and is designing international versions of its app for just that purpose.

The newly launched application has received attention from high places already; Google chose the app as one of its favorite start-ups as part of a program sponsored by the Korean government and SoftBank Ventures has invested 1 billion won ($941,000) in the application. Softbank Ventures is part of SoftBank Corp., a Japanese telecommunications company.

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPod touch and iPad
* Requires iOS 5.0 or later
* 5.6 MB

Pricing and Availability:
Classting – The New Classroom 2.4.3 is free for limited time and available worldwide through the iTunes App Store and Google Play Store in the Education category. Classting is free of charge to download and join. It is also available as a web application.

Penkie Pop, Chart Topping Arctic Runner now Free

Seoul, Korea – enCuv Studio’s freshly launched title, Penkie Pop, isn’t just an endless running game. According to a developer spokesperson, Penkie Pop is also a runaway hit. The game’s designers and developers are celebrating the application’s instant success on the iTunes App Store and Google Play store by offering the game for free.

Penkie Pop capitalizes on the recent surge of popularity enjoyed by 3D endless running titles, but brings new features and inspired design to the table to tempt gamers. So far, this strategy has been successful.

“Downloads are exceeding expectations, and positive ratings are rolling in,” said Kevin Kim, Marketing Director at enCuv Studio. “The game reviewed very well with our focus testers, so the positivity isn’t unexpected. But many great games go unnoticed. We’re very happy to say that isn’t the case with Penkie Pop.” So far, the game has earned a 4.9 rating in the Google Play store.

Penkie Pop features a playful penguin that depends on the player’s skill to take flight and race his way to a warmer climate. By tapping the screen repeatedly, the player keeps Penkie airborne. To steer, players choose tilt or touch controls according to their preference. While racing along an obstacle filled path, Penkie must dodge flying debris and snatch up stars, gems, and boost items as well. The game provides endless hours of exciting play, and invites players to share their successes – and show off their bragging rights – via Twitter and Facebook integration. The in-app store uses gems as currency, which can be earned in-game or purchased.

Penkie Pop can be downloaded from the iTunes App Store and Google Play store free of charge, and is compatible with most devices using iOS 4.2 and Android 2.2 and above.

Features:

* Fly along with Penkie through a brightly colored, beautifully animated 3D adventure that never gives you a chance to catch your breath

* Use your quartz to obtain special Power Ups that enhance your abilities or help you gather more quartz

* Use special abilities like Star Bomb to blast your way out of a dangerous spot

* Collect fifty achievements and revel in the resulting rewards

* Share Penkie’s successes with the world via Facebook and Twitter integration

* Customize your controls to use tilt or touch to dodge flying boulders, snowballs, and other obstacles in Penkie’s path to freedom

* Gather quartz on the run or purchase it in the shop to unlock special Penkie models like “the Ultra Surfer” and “the Rocket Rider” to see Penkie in stylish new get ups

* Unlock epic Wind Bullet weapons like the Stone Burster, Twin Cyclone, Fire Squall, Platinum Blizzard, and more

* The brightly colored environment, smooth 3D animation, and professional character and game design give Penkie Pop a polished feel that enCuv Studio designers hope will appeal to gamers everywhere.

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPod touch and iPad
* Requires iOS 4.2 or later
* 41.6 MB

Pricing and Availability:
Penkie Pop 1.0.2 is free for limited time and available worldwide through the iTunes App Store and Google Play Store in the games category.

BearExtender Turbo brings High Speed 802.11ac Wi-Fi to Macs

Berkeley, California – BearExtender, the leader in Wi-Fi solutions for Apple Macintosh computers, announced today the availability of BearExtender Turbo, a high speed 802.11ac USB Wi-Fi adapter for Macs.

BearExtender Turbo features a maximum throughput speed of 867 Mbps on the 5 Ghz 802.11ac band when used with 802.11ac standard routers like the 2013 AirPort Extreme or 2013 Time Capsule. That is up to 3 times faster than previous generation 802.11n equipped Macs. BearExtender Turbo features USB 3.0 SuperSpeed connectivity and twin dual band (2.4 & 5 Ghz) upgradable antennas.

“802.11ac is the newest standard in wireless networking and it brings blazing fast Wi-Fi speeds,” said Roland Saekow, head of product development at BearExtender. “But only the newest 2013 MacBook Air, 2013 MacBook Pro and 2013 iMac come equipped with 802.11ac capability today. BearExtender Turbo allows people with other Macs to easily add 802.11ac technology since earlier internal AirPort cards from Apple cannot be upgraded to 802.11ac.”

How it Works:
BearExtender Turbo plugs into a Mac’s USB 3.0 or USB 2.0 port and is compatible with Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard through the newest OS X 10.9 Mavericks. The drivers were developed specifically for Mac OS X with a simplified interface. This makes BearExtender Turbo the perfect way to upgrade an older 802.11g or 802.11n equipped Mac to the latest and greatest high speed 802.11ac standard.

“Whether you are streaming movies wirelessly, playing bandwidth intensive games, or running a daily backup to your Apple Time Capsule, every Mac deserves the maximum throughput possible,” added Saekow. “BearExtender Turbo nearly triples the bandwidth available to earlier 802.11n equipped Macs, and doubles the speed for 2012 Mac models with 450 Mbps 802.11n.”

Performance and Benchmarks:
Product benchmarks are often performed under unrealistic conditions like testing two feet from a router with no obstructions. A real world test of BearExtender Turbo was conducted through multiple doors and walls at a distance of 75 feet between the test computer and base station.

Using AJA System Test on Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks, a 2GB file was transferred between a Mid-2012 802.11n MacBook Air and a 2013 Apple Time Capsule at a rate of 10.66 Megabytes per second (MB/s not megabits). The same test with BearExtender Turbo connected to the MacBook Air’s USB 3.0 port had a rate of 23.84 MB/s, more than twice the Macbook Air’s internal Wi-Fi card.

This real world test also included the overhead from transferring a file using the Apple Filing Protocol (AFP). Real world tests help reflect actual 802.11ac performance instead of theoretical maximum rates.

For maximum connection speeds, BearExtender Turbo must be used with an 802.11ac router and a USB 3.0 port. It is backward compatible with 802.11b/g/n standards. Internet download and streaming speeds will be limited by your Internet Service Provider (ISP) plan and service tier. For example, if your 802.11n Mac already gets the full speed provided by your ISP, BearExtender cannot increase the speed of your ISP.

Pricing and Availability:
BearExtender Turbo is available starting today, December 13th, with a suggested retail price of $79.97 (USD). Special launch pricing is available exclusively through Amazon. BearExtender Turbo can also be ordered directly from the manufacturer with Free Expedited Priority Mail shipping.

Thinkr 1.1.1 – New Social Network That Invented the Selfie Like Updated

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil – Thinkr today is pleased to announce the release and immediate availability of Thinkr 1.1.1, an update to their popular social networking app for iPhone and iPod touch devices. Thinkr allows users to go beyond simply “liking” a photo or video. Choosing from a range of twelve different emotions (i.e. Happy, Wow, Love, Envy, Angry, Yummy, Clever, Calm, Doubt, Funny, Crazy, Sad), users can express their sentiments by importing a photo or having a different profile picture, or “selfie,” for each feeling.

The user’s dynamic profile photo updates automatically and is color-coded to further express the emotion (i.e. yellow is happy, blue is sad, etc.). In addition to the “selfies,” users can post one-word status updates that capture what they are thinking or feeling. Like the “selfies,” the text also reflects the emotion expressed with a range of colors. Over time, users can track their emotions (and the emotions of their friends) and keep an emotional diary.

Feature Highlights:
* 12 different emotions that describe photos, videos or status updates
* Intuitive interface
* Ability to interact in augmented reality
* Color-coded “selfies”
* Ability to add clickable text in stylish fonts (such as hashtags) to photos
* Ability to add vintage filters to photos
* Record and post 12-second slow motion video loops
* Geo-localized status updates
* Ability to share to Instagram, Tumblr, SMS, Facebook, and Twitter
* Interact locally and globally with others
* Track emotions over time

Version 1.1.1 has incorporated several updates to Thinkr. In addition to offering Spanish translation, users now have improved camera functionality and the ability to import photos from their Library as their dynamic profile picture. Thinkr has also added several new icons and emojis and the ability to share on Instagram, Tumblr, and SMS. Finally, users can now post 12-second, slow motion video loops (sound not included).

“Thinkr has seen rapid growth and consistently positive feedback,” says Alessandro Berio, CEO of Thinkr. “In one month, the app had more than 50,000 downloads, 400,000 page views, and was featured as the Best New App in Brazil and in 20 countries worldwide. We’re very excited about the latest update which allows users to capture their lives in slow-motion (although we like to think of them as “moving photos’). It’s the quickest and coolest way to share what you are thinking and feeling!.”

Brother’s Revenge, an exciting beat’em up game for iPhone, iPad and iPod

Montevideo, Uruguay – Following the success of Thief Job, an endless runner game that received more than 1.5 million downloads, Tekko Games is proud to announce the launch of their next game. Inspired by arcade classics such as Streets of Rage and Double Dragon, Brothers Revenge offers addicting side-scrolling beat ‘em up action on all iOS platforms, including iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.

In Brothers Revenge players can perform awesome combos and special attacks to defeat waves of tough enemies and bosses. The quest to rescue his son takes Mike across several unique locations, including cities, castles, and more. Along the way players can collect money to upgrade abilities and stats, making Mike into an even fiercer fighting machine.

Some of the main features include 3 difficulty levels (easy, medium, hard), allowing both casual players and veteran gamers to have fun. Also included are online leader-boards that let you compare your scores with friends, as well as several challenging achievements to unlock.

An updated version is set to release soon that will include even more bosses, levels, and special attacks to master and enjoy. Previously requiring a cost to play more than 3 levels, this new update will also make the full version of Brothers Revenge completely free to download.
