“How many sleeps to go?” Timeless can keep track for you

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA – March 7, 2014: Curve Tomorrow announces the immediate availability of their free iPhone app Timeless. Timeless uses a novel ‘countdown wheel’ set upon Flickr images to help users keep track of upcoming events. Users can easily share their countdown timers via Facebook, Twitter or Weibo and receive useful notifications of approaching events.

“Timeless is a great new app for counting down the days until an important event,” states Sarah Hanlon from The iPhone App Review. “This lightweight countdown timer can display multiple countdown dates in a streamlined and clean interface, making it a true pleasure to use.”

Curve Tomorrow have replaced the traditional digital countdown clock with a countdown wheel. This wheel graphically represents an entire year as a circle. Time remaining until an event is shown as a colored segment on this circle, allowing the user to visually determine how long until an event occurs. We intuitively perceive the flow of time in a circular motion, analogous to a clock face,” said Mohinder Jaimangal, Curve Tomorrow Founder,We wanted to create a timer app that captured that innate perception.”

Timeless consists of three screens: create a new event, summary of events, and detailed event information. This makes usage intuitive and navigation seamless. The user is prompted for minimal input when creating a new event: title, date and color. The new event is then added to the summary of events screen, which includes all active timers, ordered by number of days remaining in the countdown.

The detailed event information screen includes the number of hours, minutes and seconds remaining until an event and emphasizes the visual features of the countdown wheel. Random Flickr images are tiled behind the wheel, adding a creative element to the user experience.

Timeless also provides the user with iPhone notifications of an approaching event, at convenient preset intervals and allows sharing of events via social media.

Curve Tomorrow has prioritized ease of use and integrated unique artistic features to create an app suitable for all ages. “There are thousands of countdown apps available for download out there, so what makes this one so special? Well for starters its beautiful to look at,” Bess Couture, AppsHappens.

Pricing and availability

Timeless is available now for free download from the App Store and is designed for use with the iPhone with iOS 7.

 Vehicle365: Total Car Based Information with Batman Style Tracking

Reviewed by Luke Patrick

When we first started doing this job many eons ago, we never would have thought that tracking applications would be as big of business as they are on the App Store. But now that we’ve used quite a few throughout the years, we have to admit—there’s a lot of value in the peace of mind they offer.

Vehicle365 by World Wide App is no different: The application offers a whole lot of useful driving information, as well as some handy ways to track those you care about to ensure their trip goes smoothly. With wintry weather still on a lot of people’s minds, this point has never been more salient.

For our full review, just slide on down below the break!

The core concept behind Vehicle365 begins with your car. Or, we suppose, your public transpiration method of choice, though really this is aimed at personal vehicles.

Either way, the application will track your movement, providing you with an array of useful statistics. You’ll get (of course) your current speed in either kilometers an hour or miles per hour. You’ll also get a trip-wide average of your speed.

You can display just your speed in the raw speedometer, or you can put it on your dash using the applications HUD feature. This is quite cool, actually, and simply mirrors your phone in the glass of your windscreen.

Aside from this, the real reason to get Vehicle365 is for its tracking potential. Install the separate Vehicle365 Manger app (It’s totally free!) and you can track all of the other logged-in instances of your Vehicle365 account.

This means you can follow your family as they travel to work in terrible conditions, or even just monitor them throughout the day.

The app even comes with a sort of “panic” button that can blast your current location to those on your network when you’re in trouble.

 Bowl With Me: Take the Lanes Along in Your Pocket

Reviewed by Luke Patrick

If you’ve been a long-time fan of ours, then you’re likely aware of my personal fixation on arcade games. However, there’s no possible way that you could know about my love for bowling. I’ve been playing the game since I was a child, and at this point, it’s got a lot of fond memories in my heart.

Perhaps this is why I love Bowl With Me, by developers Megu and Bitwise Design, so much. It provides a terrific bowling experience using an excellent physics engine, simple controls,  complex rules, and beautiful graphics.

Either way, you’ll find our full review of the application tucked away below!

Concept and Gameplay star Bowl With Me: Take the Lanes Along in Your Pocketstar Bowl With Me: Take the Lanes Along in Your Pocketstar Bowl With Me: Take the Lanes Along in Your Pocketstar Bowl With Me: Take the Lanes Along in Your Pocketstar Bowl With Me: Take the Lanes Along in Your Pocket

If you have ever played a round of bowling in your life, then you know exactly what you’ll find here with Bowl With Me. The game lets you toss virtual balls down the lanes with finesse, aiming for strikes and spares.

The controls mimic the action of real bowling quite closely, and all using a “toss” mechanic. Just flick the ball toward the pins to get things rolling—no pun intended! Afterward, you’ll see the end results, and keep playing frames. Using the spin plate that the ball rests on, you can also adjust the spin for more accuracy. Finally, just scoot your finger left or right to adjust the placement of your ball.

 Bowl With Me: Take the Lanes Along in Your PocketThis allows for a whole lot of complexity, especially considering you’re allowed balls of varying weights. These weights really do change how the balls roll, and add up to some crazy cool gameplay when you get a hang of it.

Not to mention the fact that the physics engine at work here is spot-on. We’re in love with how the game controls the reality side of the coin, as it fits perfectly with what we’d expect.

Random Ruby, developed by App Volks, is a new and exciting word game for iPhone and iPad. Featuring an original concept and tons of puzzles to solve, this is one game that puzzle lovers will certainly enjoy.

It’s incredibly refreshing when a new game comes around, especially a new puzzle that makes you think in ways you’ve never done before. Random Ruby is certainly new to me, and incredibly fun to play.

The game requires players to listen to a conversation between three people (Ruby and her two coworkers) and find the common word that links everything together.

Why is the game called Random Ruby? Well, when the two coworkers have finished conversing about a topic, Ruby appears from the other side of the cubicle and makes a statement that seemingly has nothing to do with what they were talking about.

Once the exchange is finished, users must select from a variety of letters to find the word that links Ruby’s comment with the conversation.

The game is much easier to understand once you play through a few of the levels, but it’s truly challenging at some points. Personally I find this incredibly refreshing and original. While this certainly isn’t a game for people who are looking for action or adventure, Random Ruby is a perfect game for puzzle lovers who really want to pick their brain.

Random Ruby iPhone Game Review

As any challenging puzzle game should, Random Ruby features hints for players. Hints can be purchased with rubies that are earned from successfully completing puzzles. Users can choose to spend 60 rubies to add a correct letter to the word and/or 80 rubies to remove an incorrect letter from the group.

Considering each puzzle that’s solved rewards only 4 rubies, it’s very easy to zip through the initial amount. Personally I think either the ruby price per hint should be lowered or rewards should be tiered based on performance so players can earn rubies faster.

Random Ruby includes 300 levels to play through, meaning this is definitely a marathon game. I can almost guarantee you’ll run into puzzles that just don’t make sense, and if you run out of rubies for hints you can always post to Facebook and seek help from friends.

Overall, folks who are looking for a completely new puzzle game to try should definitely check out Random Ruby!

The app world is full of surprises. Every once in a while, some synthesis of styles stimulates a brand new app that takes everyone by surprise. Doctored, from Doctored, Inc., is in many ways, this exact type of app.

The app takes a new approach to physical attraction and the wide world of courting by allowing you to adapt yourself into a digital context. You can create a digital mock-up, cartoon-creation of yourself, and compare yourself to friends and peers. Figure out who is your match and how attractive you are (digitally speaking) with Doctored.

This app especially resonates with my 12-year-old self, who used to create a self-inspired character in every Tony Hawk or MLB game I could get my hands on. In a similar vein, this game allows users to adapt toward the digital realm; choosing character traits from stomach type to color bikini top. You can even create your ideal partner and see what others think about it.

There are tons of combinations here, and some very creative developments at play in this app. If you like dressing yourself up and down just to try new styles, than the experimental nature of this game will definitely appeal to you. You can even undergo virtual surgeries!

One big pet peeve of mine is being mined for personal information. This app makes you sign up with your name, email address, password, agreement to terms and separate username before you can even login.

This is where I usually recommend some sort of an entry period, where the basic features of the app are available to everyone regardless of subscription, and more complicated and in-depth options are reserved for those who give email address, credit card info, etc.

Still, the app runs well and looks relatively fresh, though some of the graphics look like stock-images. Also, if you want to choose your skin tone, you’ve only got one of two choices, so the app could use a bit more ethnic sensibility.

 Strike a perfect pose with Posing Time!

Reviewed by Sara Clayton

As someone who is not only not photogenic but also awkward in front of the camera, I usually shy away from group photos or anything that has to do with flash photography. Some people just know how to strike a pose when the spotlight is on them, but unfortunately I’m not one of those people.

Lucky for me (and probably for at least a couple of you readers), there’s an app out there that can help lessen some of that awkward posing. That app? Posing Time, an app developed by Sergei Vinogradov, is looking to solve this problem.

Concept and Functionality: star Strike a perfect pose with Posing Time!star Strike a perfect pose with Posing Time!star Strike a perfect pose with Posing Time!star Strike a perfect pose with Posing Time!emptystar Strike a perfect pose with Posing Time!

Posing Time is a perfect app for those who do not know how to pose for pictures, but also ideal for anyone trying to refine their portrait photography skills.

This app comes with more than 100 different poses, so just when you thought that you’d have to go for your default camera pose, you have much more to choose from. To begin, all you have to do is open up the app then choose from one of eight categories including couples, children, family and even nude (for you daring photographers).

Once you choose a category, you’ll be shown a number of different poses within that category. You have the option to favorite this pose (for future references), zoom in on it in case you want to get a close look and take a photo using this pose.

How exactly does this work? When you click “Camera”, you’ll be taken to your camera which will have a silhouette of the selected pose in the shot, which you can use to take the perfect snapshot.

Posing Time is possibly one of the most organized apps I’ve ever used. Because its concept is simple, there aren’t too many miscellaneous features that are included. The features that are included are in fact, very useful.

The homescreen shows all of the pose categories and, at the bottom, there are options for “My Shots,” “Favorites” and “Settings.” The first option will show you the photos you’ve taken using the silhouettes. You can view your favorite poses when you click on favorites. Plus, if you want to change the opacity of the silhouette on the camera, just switch over to “settings,” and you’ll be good to go.

Considering that Posting Time costs $1.99, it sounds like a steep price to pay for an app that only teaches you how to pose. But think about it this way — by paying for the app, you’ll have absolutely no ads creeping up during your sessions and you have access to every single pose in the pose library.

Not to mention, where else will you find an app that will not only teach you how to pose at weddings, but also if you’re pregnant!

Posing Time is certainly a unique app with some really cool features that a lot of apps do not have. So have a little fun with Posing Time — get dolled up and get comfortable in front of the camera, because now there’s no reason not to strike a perfect pose!
