Infuse , my favorite video player on iOS, has been updated with some highly anticipated features, including AirPlay, TV out (with HDMI/VGA adapter), WiFi file transfers and more. Besides being able to play most popular video formats – thus saving you the time of first converting into MP4 format – and its beautiful interface, Infuse lets users easily download subtitles right from within the app and also integrates trakt.tv (keep track of all the movies and shows you’ve watched with a free account). Personally I’ve been waiting for AirPlay support since the app released and thankfully, streaming to an Apple TV works flawlessly from what I’ve seen so far. There have been no lags or video/audio quality issues with the dozen or so files I’ve tested. The only downer is that subtitles are disabled once AirPlay is enabled. Fear not though, as FireCore has just mentioned to me that this is something they’re working on and hoping to implement in the next update in 2-3 weeks.

Infuse is a free update for existing users and costs $4.99 on the App Store. More info after the gap.

Infinite Dreams’ Let’s create! Pottery HD (makers of iQuarium and Jelly Defense) has already been downloaded 5 million times and is widely considered one of the more unique experiences on the App Store. Not only can you create virtual pottery, but now thanks to a partnership with Sculpteo and their innovative 3D printing technology, users can finally turn their works of art into real objects.

After you’ve shaped, painted and uploaded your pottery to the online portal, there’ll be an option to place a 3D printing of your work from within the recently updated app (v 1.40). Prices vary depending on the design and complexity of the pot, ranging from $10 to over $100+ and sizes are available in Small, Medium and Large (2″, 4″ and 6″ in height). Shipping also depends on its size and complexity, though most orders are said to be shipped within 2 working days. Of course, if you don’t feel like making your own, you can still purchase potteries created by other users, all of which can be found on aforementioned community portal (over 250,000 virtual pots have been created and shared here).

Let’s create! Pottery HD sells for $4.99 and is a universal app, and IAP are available for various themes and brush packs. There is a free lite version available as well should you wish to try your hand at pottery creation prior to making the buy on the App Store.

Check out the promotional trailer of Pottery HD coming to life below.

Full Press Release:

Gliwice, Poland – Infinite Dreams, award-winning games publisher announces the revolutionary possibilities of the world popular Let’s create! Pottery mobile application, downloaded more than 5 million times. Thanks to Sculpteo’s innovative 3D printing technology, smartphone and tablet users can make their own digital pieces of art and create real pottery themselves which they can display at home.

Let’s create! Pottery is a unique application which enables people to de-stress whilst also stimulating their imagination. Anyone can become a real artist and create “one of a kind” pottery objects. Users can throw the clay on the virtual wheel, release all artistic talents and benefit from dozens of materials available on the app in order to create their own designs. When players glaze and fire their very first pot, they feel a sense of satisfaction and relaxed as pottery is the best way to relieve everyday stress and find ones own inner peace.

Infinite Dreams decided to move forward with the visualization process by integrating a 3D printing feature into the Let’s create! Pottery app. Thanks to the partnership with the French online 3D printing service Sculpteo, users of the Let’s create! Pottery application are given the option to convert virtual pots into real objects which can be displayed on a shelf or be given to family or friends.

Clément Moreau, CEO and Co-Founder of Sculpteo: “By integrating our 3D printing platform into applications such as Let’s create! Pottery shows how the magic of 3D printing can be applied in a number of different ways. This partnership demonstrates how ineluctably the division between the digital world and real world is disappearing thanks to 3D Printing technology.”

The process of creating and ordering objects is intuitive and doesn’t require users to have any technical knowledge. The application offers a huge library of colors, patterns and materials which are ready to use during the creation of unique objects. Users of the Let’s Create! Pottery app can upload and view other people’s creations on the community portal (www.potterygame.com). So far, users of the application shared more than quarter of the million virtual pots which have been created, each with unique patterns and shapes. The Let’s Create! Pottery application together with the website is incredibly therapeutic and an uplifting experience that everyone can enjoy.

When the creation process is done, the virtual pot is published on the user’s private account on the Pottery Portal (the login system is based on the Facebook Connect feature) where it can be sent to Sculpteo the 3D printing service to be manufactured. To order a pot created in the Let’s create! Pottery application, users choose the size of the model and decide which payment method they prefer (PayPal, credit card or bank transfer) to finalize the order. The delivery time depends on the complexity and size of the order. Most of the orders are shipped within 2 working days.

Artur Starzyk, Marketing & PR Manager of Infinite Dreams: “We are thrilled to share the creativity of Let’s create! Pottery with thousands of people all over the world. Thanks to this partnership with Sculpteo, we are combining two innovative technologies – smartphone or tablet touch screens with 3D printing. Now users can use our application to send unique gifts to friends or simply to decorate their own homes. Imagination is the only limit”.

3D printing is not the only amazing technology combined with the Infinite Dreams application. Let’s create Pottery application was used also to visualize pottery creation process at Resorts World Sentosa’s Maritime Experiential Museum & Aquarium (MEMA) in Singapore. The visitors of the museum can create amazing pots on 32 inch gigantic LCD screens to familiarize with the artistic pottery. An exclusive edition of the Let’s create! Pottery features high-resolution, eye-catching gorgeous 3D graphics, intuitive and fun control system and tons of relaxing moments.

Let’s create! Pottery was the number one app in the Entertainment category in the App Store and Google Play in 50 countries including United States, United Kingdom and China. Until today the game has been downloaded over 5,000,000 times and is available on Android, iOS, Symbian, Nintendo DS, Nintendo Wii and Mac OS X.

Have you ever found yourself jumping from app to app, or webpage to webpage watching online videos from various sources? If so, you need Frequency. It’s similar to Zite in that it aggregates news content under one roof, but instead of articles, you’ll find videos. Lots of them.

Frequency finds, organizes and delivers all the video you care about. Instead of going to all of your favorite websites, social networks and apps to watch the latest videos, this 5-Star app brings the best of everything to you on your iPad or iPhone.

With Frequency, you can watch video from all your favorite online sources on your favorite topics: news, comedy, entertainment, food, fashion, health, music, sports, technology and much more. You can also watch videos your friends share with you on social networks like Facebook and Twitter, and from your YouTube account.

What’s to Like:

  • Thousands of channels to choose from under broad range of categories
  • Add channels to personalize your account
  • Watch all the latest videos from your favorite sites with just one app
  • Watch videos your friends share with you on Facebook or Twitter
  • Trending and Viral videos at your finger tips
  • Save videos to ‘Favorites’ or ‘Watch Later’ list
  • Change video quality (Auto/low/high/1080p)
  • Saved Channels and lists synced across iDevices and even on the web
  • Waste time watching Mr.Bean and Just For Laugh gags!

What’s not to Like:

  • No way to look up specific video feeds via a search
  • Video feed only goes back to several days/weeks/months, all depending on the individual feed
  • If you have a LOT of channels added, locating them isn’t the most friendly (instead of displaying them in a row, it’d be nice to have the icons presented in a grid

And with the recent update of Frequency, browsing through videos with the app is now possible on the iPhone. Aside from being optimized for the iPhone 5, you can swipe up/down on the video player to skip to the next video (works on the iPad as well). This helps make it even easier to use with just one hand. The update’s also brought in some new channels, like PopSugar, College Humor, Space.com and more.

You won’t find full length feature movies or network TV shows, but for catching up on news, the latest viral vids or browsing through video content of your favorite websites, Frequency makes for a great companion on your iPhone and/or iPad. Best of all, it’s completely free, so if wasting time consuming online videos is your thing, Frequency is a must-have for your app collection.

Gearing up for the eventual release of iOS 6, Apple has released earlier today a standalone app for discovering, subscribing, and playing podcasts on your iDevice. Simply called Podcasts, the universal app will help streamline the entire podcast experience on your iPhone and iPad. Currently on iOS 5, you you can stream and listen to podcasts right from the iTunes.app, but if any were downloaded for offline listening, you’d have to make your way to the Music.app to access those files. Now with Podcasts, everything is done under one roof. An all-new “innovative” new Top Stations feature lets users find and try new podcasts from a variety of categories, including arts, business, comedy and more.

Other features include browsing by audio or video podcasts, subscribing to your favorites and automatically receiving new episodes when they become available and turning on the Sleep Timer function when in bed. For added convenience, you can optionally sync podcast episodes from iTunes on your Mac/PC, as well as between iDevices. To run the app, you’ll need to be on iOS 5.1 and syncing episodes will require iTunes 10.6.3 or higher.

Listening to podcasts on your iPhone, iPod Touch/Nano or iPad while driving or commuting is an awesome way to pass the time. Personally, one of my favorites on iTunes is the zombie podcast We’re Alive – A “Zombie” Story of survival. Check it out with the Podcasts app if you’re up for a gripping story and spot on voice acting. Podcasts is free to download and available now on the App Store (8.8MB).

Stream video to your iPhone and iPad easily with AirAV and MediaShare (both currently free) http://www.touchmyapps.com/2012/04/10/stream-video-to-your-iphone-and-ipad-easily-with-airav-and-mediashare-both-currently-free/ http://www.touchmyapps.com/2012/04/10/stream-video-to-your-iphone-and-ipad-easily-with-airav-and-mediashare-both-currently-free/#comments Tue, 10 Apr 2012 15:20:59 +0000 http://www.touchmyapps.com/?p=67537 Some of you probably have your favorite method of streaming movies, tv shows and other videos from your desktop to your iPhone and iPad on the home network.

Some of you probably have your favorite method of streaming movies, tv shows and other videos from your desktop to your iPhone and iPad on the home network. But for those of you who don’t, here are a set of apps (AirAV for iOS and MediaShare for Mac, both of which are currently free) that make the entire process extremely easy to set up – so simple in fact that no configuration of any sort is required on the users’ end.

 Both apps are made by Randysoft, and AirAv is essentially a stripped down version of AcePlayer, one of my favorite VLC-like media players on iOS. Unlike AcePlayer, which also lets you upload files to the device for offline viewing, AirAv’s sole purpose is to stream video from UPnP/DLNA media servers (i.e your desktop or laptop) to your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad.

First of all, download the currently free MediaShare on your Mac OS (down from $5.99). It’s a UPnP Media Server that is compatible with the suite of Randysoft apps, as well as the Playstation 3, freebox and other UPnP devices. Once installed from the Mac App Store, launch the app and add the folder(s) on your Mac where the videos you want to stream reside (“+” at bottom left). Once they’ve been selected, click the large blue “Play” button to the right to enable the media server.

Open AirAv on your iDevice and tap the Media Servers folder. Here, you’ll now find MediaShare as a server (with the name of your Mac) and it should say connected; if not, double check that you’ve clicked on “Play” in MediaShare app. Navigate to your video file and within several seconds of selecting it, the video will begin streaming. If you’re using AcePlayer, the Media Server can be found under “Media Explorer”.

The great thing about AcePlayer/AirAv is that they support a wide range of video files, including WMV, AVI, MKV, RMVB, RM, XVID, MP4 and more. Without the need to first convert them into MP4s,the entire video streaming experience is fast and smooth. Even if you drag the scrubber to jump ahead to another time mark in the video, the response is near-instantaneous (no buffering) and it feels as though the files are actually on your device. Of course, you don’t necessarily have to use AirAv to stream video with MediaShare. Apps like GoodPlayer (TMA Review) that support UPnP Media Servers will also work.

MediaShare’s worked great for me thus far, and it’s been the most painless setup I’ve tried to date. There are other media server options available though. On the Mac, you can check out TwonkyMediaServer, TVMOBILI, PS3 media server, Majestic, EyeConnect, Vuze,MediaLink,Orb and Playback. On Windows, the following should work as well: Win7 Media Player, TVMOBILI, Asset UPnP, FreeMi, XBMC, TVersity, Wild Media Server and TwonkyMediaServer.

Note: To use Windows 7 Media Player as a media server [as per Randysoft support]:

  • Organize –> Manage libraries (add folders)
  • Stream –>Allow Internet access to home media.

The boys are back for one last slice...

iTunes Movie Trailers, the app version of Apple’s popular movie trailer website of the same name, has been updated to support the new iPad’s 2048-by-1536 resolution display.

iTunes Move Trailers 1.1 is now designed for the spectacular Retina display on the all new iPad.

Aside from the high-res updates to the movie posters and other assets, the trailers themselves have also been improved. As long as you’re streaming them at “High Definition” (Settings –>Trailers –> Trailer Playback Quality), the trailers look awesome on the new iPad. If you’re watching them on LTE connections though, you may want to be careful and think about bumping down the quality settings a touch. Otherwise, your monthly data quota will be consumed before you can say “damn you movie trailers!”

Inspire Pro, the highly rated painting app for the iPad, has now dropped to $0.99 (down from $7.99) to celebrate French artist Pierre-Auguste Renoir’s birthday. While there are plenty of art apps on the App Store, Inspire Pro is among one of the most popular in its genre, especially when it comes to oil painting.

Try Inspire Pro and you will quickly see that it is a painting app like no other! The key feature is the simulation of wet oil paint on canvas, allowing amazing blending effects with five real kinds of brushes. You will be stunned by what you can do with a dry brush!

Inspire Pro is not a Photoshop clone. It does NOT have layers or a large number of brushes. It does, however, have the BEST color blending capability on the App Store. Whether you’re a beginner, expert, or somewhere in between, you will enjoy the simplicity and power of Inspire Pro.

Inspire is also available for the iPhone, which sells for $4.99. Check out some of the very impressive paintings made with Inspire Pro after the break.

✔ FEATURES ✔

Brushes
- Five realistic paint brushes to choose from: a flat brush, round brush, fan brush, palette knife and clumped brush.
- Each brush comes in many different sizes and can be rotated a full 360 degrees.
- Brushes can be loaded with different amounts of paint, including no paint at all for a dry brush.
- Varying amounts of pressure can be used with a dry brush to achieve many different kinds of paint blending effects.
- All brushes can be used as an eraser, controlled by the pressure.

GoodPlayer – Movie Player & Downloader & Streaming Media Player in Review – All-round best in class movie player with streaming http://www.touchmyapps.com/2011/09/29/goodplayer-movie-player-downloader-streaming-media-player-in-review/ http://www.touchmyapps.com/2011/09/29/goodplayer-movie-player-downloader-streaming-media-player-in-review/#comments Thu, 29 Sep 2011 15:42:32 +0000 http://www.touchmyapps.com/?p=58466 For the longest time, one of the most frustrating issues with the iPhone was its inability to play anything other than pre-converted MP4 video.

For the longest time, one of the most frustrating issues with the iPhone was its inability to play anything other than pre-converted MP4 video. Of course, this has changed with the introduction of the iPhone 4 and a number of apps by 3rd party developers have arrived on the platform ever since. That said though, a glaring issue still has been streaming support. I have reviewed AirPlayer (TMA Review) – the only contender I could find some months ago and was appalled by it’s horrible performance, both connected to the TV and not. Then, I came across GoodPlayer – Movie Player & Downloader & Streaming Media Player

GoodPlayer – Movie Player & Downloader & Streaming Media Player is an all-in-one media cruncher that’s able to get to the content via almost any means, from UPnP to Samba shares. Oh yeah, it can play media transferred via iTunes as well!

First off let’s start with the general playback functionality. I’ve tried and tested Goodplayer with all the filetypes I had available at hand, from the commonplace AVI in XViD or DivX and WMV to flv, MKV and even realplayer videos. It happily gulped up everything in SD quality on my iPhone 4 and even managed 720p videos with almost perfect flawlessness for AVI. And on the iPad 2, 1080p content encountered no issues whatever. But frankly, all of this was not much of a surprise since almost all currently available media players on iOS use the open-source FFMpeg library for live transcoding, which means the actual performance is similar across the board.

The tasty stuff lies in the streaming capabilities of Goodplayer, and here it’s truly unrivalled at this point. You can get files over direct streaming links, UPnP media servers, Samba/CIFS shares and even FTP or WebDAV servers. I’ve had no problems connecting to my NAS over all of the said protocols with excellent performance across the board. Even connected to the TV via Apple’s Component cable, SD movies played flawlessly over my aged WiFi-g network.

The interface is the one part of Goodplayer that could be improved on a bit. While there are no actual issues or problems with it as such, I feel that it’s a bit too heavy on the standard Apple browsing elements, which aren’t perfect for media consumption. And the fact that played videos aren’t marked as such, at least over streaming, is an added frustration, especially when watching multiple seasons of tv shows. On the upside – Goodplayer IS universal, so it’ll work on both your iPhone and your iPad.

At the moment, if you’re looking for a full-featured streaming video player for the iOS, Goodplayer is a natural choice. A wide range of supported formats and protocols with excellent performance (and no TV-Out degradation to boot) leaves the competitors far behind in both features and polish. If the developers are able to improve upon the user interface, Goodplayer would truly be the perfect app to consume your media collection.

With this I declare GoodPlayer – Movie Player & Downloader & Streaming Media Player officially touched!

App Summary
Title: GoodPlayer – Movie Player & Downloader & Streaming Media Player Developer: Hustmobile
Reviewed Ver: 3.3 Min OS Req: 3.2
Price: $2.99 App Size: 17.38MB
  • Supports most modern Audio/Video formats
  • Works over UPnP, Samba (Windows shares), FTP, HTTP and WebDAV
  • Local file storage support
  • TV-Out support with no performance decrease
  • Universal
  • The UI could use a touch-up
