Alameda, California – New Map Object, Bullet Lists Among the Improvements to Make Building a Website Easier than Ever.
Karelia Software today released Sandvox 2.2, an update to its award-winning website building software for the Mac, now with a new Map object, powered by Google, a new Text Inspector for handling bulleted and numbered lists, and much more.
The new Map object makes adding a map as easy as selecting the object and entering the location address in the Object Inspector. A new Text Inspector makes it simple to format a list either using numbers or bullets. Version 2.2 also introduces new Strikethrough formatting, plus the ability to customize the writing direction as ‘left to right’ or as ‘right to left’ for non-Roman languages.
Advanced users who work with Raw HTML objects can now use a built-in Tidy HTML function and access a Develop menu. Sandvox 2.2 offers improved SFTP and WebDAV publishing, enhanced media handling tools, and other refinements and fixes to reported issues in this award-winning website building application.
Websites created using Sandvox 2 automatically support the latest HTML5 web standard. Sandvox 2 introduced a completely new architecture and new editing engine, which allows customers to mix and match web page content “objects” in a much more naturally expressive and creative way.
Sandvox 2 also introduced a new design chooser and a much more powerful Inspector that makes it easy to selectively adjust page layout, modify objects, and apply modern page features. Sandvox 2 includes the latest version of the Karelia iMedia Browser, an open source contribution which is now a staple in many popular Mac apps.

Seoul, South Korea – From the minds of the creative geniuses at renowned mobile software developer IntStorm Studios, comes an iPhone app that will forever change the way users think about reasoning games. Situation Shuffle for iPhone, available for just $0.99 at iTunes, is a reasoning game that – in surprising users during gameplay with the ability to unlock secret Shuffle Quizzes – does away with the dull and puts the fun and wild spontaneity back into problem solving games. All you have to do is arrange a set of image cards in the right sequence; but, be advised…you’ll have to be super observant (and intelligent) to crack the code!
Unlike most problem solving apps, many of which provide a rigid, dreary format and a limited scope, Situation Shuffle solves the problem of dull, dry reasoning apps by offering an application that offers a wide variety of different game modes and numerical and imaging challenges. Your logic might be tested by a number-sequencing challenge; you might decide you want to challenge your I.Q.; or maybe take a stroll through the comprehensive Quiz Challenge mode. You’re not likely to ever get bored with this app, as Situation Shuffle features 30 IQ quizzes, 30 extra quizzes and six Shuffle quizzes.
“We wanted to solve the problem of the usual, everyday reasoning game app – which is that, even if they are challenging, they are sometimes just so dull and stuffy and repetitive,” said Lena Kwon, Manager at UbiNuri Inc.. “With Situation Shuffle, we have created a reasoning app that not only develops critical thinking skills, but is also fun to play. The interface is beautiful to look at, the image cards are really bright, and there are different modes to get lost in…Everything about this app, especially the ability to, during gameplay, unlock hidden shuffle quizzes, was designed to put the fun and spontaneity back into problem solving games.”
No matter what your pleasure is when it comes to reasoning games, IntStorm Studios has your number with this unique and challenging app, available right now at iTunes for $0.99. Situation Shuffle is not just a super fun game that provides a never-ending stream of reasoning challenges, it is an app that solves the proverbial question: Where does one find a reasoning game app that is challenging, fun and spontaneous, and NOT boring?
“We think Situation Shuffle is the answer to the dull reasoning game,” said Kwon, “but I guess you’ll have to try it and find out for yourself. We always appreciate customer feedback, so after you try Situation Shuffle, tell us what you think!”

Austin, Texas – Starmap, the most expansive and professional planetarium mobile phone application available, has announced a new promotional campaign that includes a redesigned website and a series of animated and live action videos. The campaign, called “Starmap: The Universe Just Got Smaller” intends to expand its already massive user base by educating the public, explaining the apps through engaging videos, and showcasing why Starmap is still the best and most downloaded planetarium app in iTunes.
“Starmap is still the best planetarium app available on the market today,” said Frederic Descamps, CEO of Starmap. “We’ve had a lot of success since we launched the Starmap app in 2008. This campaign is simply an effort to boost the Starmap user base even more, and reward the longtime users of the app.”
The new website is set to go live on October 10, 2011. Starmap will release a series of HD live action and animated videos throughout the end of year. Frederic believes that the videos and redesigned website will further enhance the usability and incredible features of Starmap apps.
“The Starmap apps have such an expansive platform yet they are so easy to use,” said Descamps. “They are the only planetarium mobile phone apps that can be used by a casual sky gazer or a professional astronomer.”
The new promotional campaign also intends to show how Starmap is a far better tool than any of its competitors, which is why it has won several awards and been an iTunes “Featured” app multiple times. Starmap has been so successful for Descamps, that he has turned this mobile application suite into a viable and profitable business. To celebrate the campaign, Descamps is also offering all Starmap applications 50% off the original price for a limited time only.
Descamps is a PhD electronics/physics engineer, working in the field of scientific instrumentation. He developed the Starmap app on his own in a mere four months in his spare time. He has been an astronomer since the age of 12, and naturally gravitated towards building an app that would aid him in his profession and his hobby.
“Starmap was somehow going back to my roots,” said Descamps.
Starmap currently offers four different applications: Starmap Standard, Starmap Pro, Starmap HD, and Spacemap. These highly successful apps have been praised by a number of publications and review sites including iLounge.com and Sky and Telescope magazine. The Starmap apps are available on the iPhone, iPhone Touch, and Starmap HD and Spacemap are available on the iPad. For more information, please visit www.star-map.fr or download the Starmap app from iTunes.
Founded in 2008 by Frederic Descamps, Starmap is the first handheld interactive planetarium mobile application that lets you view the galaxy with realistic maps and detailed factual information. Descamps is a professional astronomer and has been practicing in the field since his youth. He holds a PhD in electronics/physics engineering, with a thesis in electronics for large particles detector at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland and DESY in Hamburg, Germany. Descamps started the Starmap mobile application as a hobby, which has now turned into a business. Copyright (C) 2011 Starmap. All Rights Reserved.

Northport, Alabama – Online marketing innovator Aeron Agency has announced the launch of its new mobile application Busted, available now through the iTunes App Store and the Android Market. Busted is designed for users to activate a button in the event of their arrest to contact friends or family, a bail bondsman, and an attorney; making Busted the first application of its kind and the only product on the market that can actually speed up the process of being released from jail.
“Busted starts the process of bailing you out of jail faster than an officer can drive you there,” says Aeron’s Apple development specialist Taylor Addison. “Busted makes all the necessary calls for you with the simple touch of a button, hours before you’ll ever receive a chance to make your one phone call.” Addison, currently an electrical engineering student at the University of Alabama, is co-creator of the Busted app alongside Android specialist, Austin Haskew. Originally designed with students in mind, Busted is quickly proving to be a useful tool for anyone who has been detained and doesn’t have time on their side.
With the push of a bright red button on the app’s interface, Busted will be activated anywhere in the United States with access to cell phone service providers. After activation, Busted calls, emails, and texts the personal contacts of the user, which are pre-selected during set-up of the app. Then utilizing GPS and Google search, Busted contacts an available bail bondsman within 20 miles of the user and informs a local attorney of the arrest.
Addison says Busted is “the best tool intended to make the difficult situation of being arrested easier. When you find yourself in a tight spot, you can have peace of mind knowing that the right people are aware of your situation. This could be the difference between being in jail for minutes and days.” For users, Busted may never be activated. Yet it’s always better to be prepared; especially when the user is in an unfamiliar area. Download the Busted app today from the iTunes App Store and the Android Market. Busted is unique in that it is the only product for mobile phones that employs a mechanism with the ability of making release from jail less painful.

Columbia, South Carolina – Created by retired research mathematics professor, David Sumner, the app Peg Pals Pro is the only puzzle of its kind on the App Store. Its predecessor Peg Pals appeared on Apple’s “What’s Hot in Board Games,” and “What’s Hot in Puzzles.”
A puzzle consists of the classic triangular board with 15 peg locations (such as those commonly seen in the Cracker Barrel restaurant). The object is to reduce the puzzle to a single peg by successively jumping a peg over an adjacent peg and into an empty location. Puzzles can vary in difficulty from requiring about 30 seconds to solve, to much more complex.
What’s special about Peg Pals is that it does not restrict the user to a single-peg removed puzzle, but rather generates random – but always solvable – puzzles with varying number of pegs removed. As an option, puzzles may require that the final peg be in a specific spot. The user also has an option to use a timer and the option to show a solvable indicator that turns pink when there is no solution for the current puzzle.
Peg Pals also uses artificial intelligence search methodology to analyze positions and can tell the user how many solutions there are to a given puzzle and which moves are best in a given position. The game allows for unlimited hints and the app will show you, move-by-move, how to solve any puzzle that you like. This makes the app great for both playing and learning how to solve any such puzzle.
The game play is smooth, fluid, and nicely animated. The pieces resemble smiley faces that beam when they are about to jump, or show horror when they are about to be jumped. All settings are preserved between sessions, and the user will resume a puzzle exactly where she left off. The app includes detailed and easy to access documentation of all its features.
Features of Peg Pals Include:
* Automated generation of solvable puzzles
* Retina graphics
* Unlimited hints
* Unlimited undo’s
* Optional timer
* Optional indicator turns pink if there is no solution
* Set up custom puzzles
* Completely analyze any puzzle
* Move by dragging pieces like the real game or optionally tap to move
* Graphics are designed for the retina display
* Complete documentation included
* iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad
* Requires iOS 3.1 or later
* 13.2 MB
Pricing and Availability:
Peg Pals Pro is available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Games category – specifically Board Games and Educational Games.

Charlottesville, Virginia – Essay WorkStation 2.1, an essay writing encyclopedia and mobile writing platform, by Niles Technology Group, has proved to be instrumental in getting students to write better essays. Designed to address the important critical thinking aspects of writing, Essay WorkStation 2.1 teaches the skills of argument development. As colleges and high schools expect more and better writing from students, Niles Technology apps, for the iPad and iPhone, are the perfect writing solution for busy students.
Colleges, high schools and students are realizing that superior writing skills are in huge demand. However, student writing skills have not kept pace as evidenced by the increase in remedial writing classes at the collegiate level. Niles Technology’s essay writing apps specifically teaches how to improve writing skills. Developed, from start to finish, with extensive teacher and student input, Essay WorkStation 2.1 does what no other essay writing product does – seamlessly directs students, step-by-step, in how to write the best essays possible. Essay WorkStation 2.1 is 258 pages on the iPad and 752 pages on the iPhone, which, by far, is the most detailed and comprehensive mobile writing product on the market.
“Our goal is rather simple; for an affordable price, to provide students with essay writing guidelines coupled with a mobile writing platform that are second-to-none,” explains Michael A. Niles, president of Niles Technology Group. “It is one thing to say a product helps students, but it is another thing altogether to actually produce one that really does. Essay WorkStation 2.1, based on reviews by teachers and students, is a resounding success and does what it says.”
Niles Technology apps employ a proprietary, teacher-written, teacher-designed writing system that simultaneously develops students’ critical thinking and writing skills. After all, writing is the prose representation of one thoughts and ideas. Once students understand the concept of higher order essay preparation, they instinctively spend more time researching, outlining and planning their essays; and, therefore, when they write, arguments are both well-structured and supported with logical reasoning. Essay WorkStation 2.1 effectively teaches these skills.
“Creating the best educational content does not happen in a vacuum. Niles Technology is fortunate to have advisors, who are also accomplished teachers, as part of its team,” continues Mr. Niles. “Our Education Advisory Board ensures that the apps stay on track in their goals and learning objectives. Niles Technology is very thankful to have them on board, and I am sure the students are as well, given the enthusiastic reception to the apps.”
Niles Technology’s Education Advisory Board members are distinguished in their respective fields and are also bringing their success to the mobile technology sector. The members of the Board are:
Erica Warren, EdD – Founder and Director of Learning to Learn, LLC and Good Sensory Learning – Dr. Warren is an author, learning specialist and educational therapist whose professional approach is based on the development of critical thinking skills and compensatory learning strategies, across all spectra of student ability. She offers individually tailored remedial assistance, cognitive therapy and challenging multi-sensory methods that accommodates each student’s zone of proximal development. Dr. Warren is currently developing teacher downloads, consumer materials and mobile teaching applications for various learning areas.
David Epstein, MD – Founder, MediRounds, LLC – A pediatric critical care physician and assistant medical school professor, Dr. Epstein is a strong advocate of critical thinking in teaching and understands how to develop content to get the most out of students. Papers that he has authored or co-authored have received peer-reviewed “best of” accolades. MediRounds is a health-care company of the future and is currently developing the next generation of mobile medical teaching applications.
Michael Niles – President, Niles Technology Group, Inc. – Niles Technology Group is the author and creator of the Essay Czar and Achievers Writing Center essay apps, highly recognized mobile apps for college and high school students. Solidly based on critical thinking pedagogy, the apps are the most comprehensive and detailed essay writing assistance available for the iPad and iPhone. Mr. Niles serves as Chairman of the Advisory Board.
Schools and teachers have discovered the efficacy of Niles Technology apps. Each month the volume purchase of the apps increase, which indicates that the use of mobile apps in schools is becoming more commonplace. Parents have also caught on because Essay Workstation is the No. 1 gifted app in the Niles inventory. For the lower grades, Middle School Writing has become a solid No. 2 bestseller, with both parents and schools purchasing the app. The Niles app catalog can be seen in the App Store by simply entering “Niles” in the iTunes search.
