It’s hard for anyone to compete with that.”

Leaping Bytes releases MapPocket v.2.4 Update – Take Your Maps Anywhere

Silver Spring, Maryland – Leaping Bytes today is proud to announce the release and immediate availability of MapPocket v.2.4, an update to their map application that can help you to save a lot on roaming charges while traveling. MapPocket allows you to put online maps in your pocket, so you can use them later without an Internet connection.

Whats New in MapPocket v.2.4:
* GPS Tracking in on-line and off-line modes (distance/avg speed/altitude) – push and hold GPS button to activate
* Chinese localization (traditional and simplified)
* Map Language selector

MapPocket is a quick, convenient and feature-rich way of using maps on the road without an Internet connection. There are number of reasons why you may want to use MapPocket:

* If you go abroad and want to avoid roaming charges (while using maps)
* If you go “into the wild” where, most likely, you will not have any Internet connection (with some cell providers “wild” could mean “just around the corner”)
* If you own an iPad or iPod without a cell data plan and going to wonder into an area without free WiFi
* And you can save some trees by not printing your maps anymore

Before you go offline, plan your expedition using an intuitive interface. At any moment touch one button to start recording what you see. MapPocket will remember all tiles you viewed. Once recorded, maps will be available any time without the internet connection. You can choose maps from one of four providers: Google, Mapquest, Bing or OpenStreetMap. If you go to Paris you may want to choose a “roadmap” view, if you go to the jungles of Amazonia you may prefer a “satellite” view.

Recorded maps are easily shared between all your devices using iCloud or DropBox. You can record a map using convenience of a large iPad’s screen and later you can access the same map on your iPhone. While planning expedition (online), you can use standard search functionality to locate points of interest. Even when offline, you can use built-in GPS to pin-point your exact location on a recorded map.

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad
* Requires iOS 4.3 or later
* 110 MB

Pricing and Availability:
MapPocket 2.4 is $2.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Navigation category.

Automatically edited video dances to Drop’n'Roll

Hong Kong – The innovative “Drop’n'Roll” feature allows instant, one-tap replacement of video fragments in a movie after it has already been automatically edited by V.I.K.T.O.R. Users are now empowered to cut into the process of automatic editing by replacing individual video parts as they see fit more, and leaving the rest of the edited movie intact.

V.I.K.T.O.R.’s original feature, “Refresh”, enabled users to create unlimited number of movies by editing sets of video clips located on user’s phone. With the new “Drop’n'Roll” feature, users can now reassemble parts of their movie clip by clip, much like a construction toy set, until they are perfectly satisfied with the outcome.

V.I.K.T.O.R. is also the only video editing app to interactively arrange filed size shots for editing. It is well-known among movie makers that for a comfort viewing experience video shots in a movie should alternate by their field size. However, due to a very subjective nature of the field size concept, this ground principle of film-making cannot be successfully applied mechanically. V.I.K.T.O.R. suggests users to manually sort their video clips by field size, and with the new “Drop’n'Roll” feature, the app takes full advantage of an automatic editing, saving users time and effort, and adding a bonus of interactive replacement, which prevents best video clips from being misplaced or left out from the final movie.

The app developers at the New Photographers Burning Factory intend to upgrade V.I.K.T.O.R. with more fun and interactive features similar to “Drop’n'Roll” in order to inspire users to assist the robot app with movie managing tasks available only to humans.

About the app:
Released late in December 2011, freemium iPhone app V.I.K.T.O.R. automatically edits video clips. With frequently updated library of “Themes” – movie editing scripts created by movie makers – the app allows making and sharing of professionally-looking short movies. With its “Drop’n'Roll” feature the app puts a new spin on developers’ challenge to seamlessly combine robotic editing with fun and creative interaction between a user and the app. Positively welcomed by users and mass media, the product is currently featured in dozens of regional App Stores.

Features:
* automatic instant editing
* regularly updated collection of Themes from professionals in editing
* random choice of videos
* replacement of individual shots
* sorting shots by their field size
* unlimited number of movie versions for the same set of videos
* trimming & cropping of video clips
* 20 sec, 1 and 2 min short movies
* web, standard and HD quality (720p) output
* sharing via Youtube, Facebook or e-mail

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad
* Requires iOS 4.3.5 or later
* 20.4 MB

Pricing and Availability:
V.I.K.T.O.R 1.1 is Free and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Photo & Video category.

Pringgle Media Releases First Relationship Bank Account App for iPhone

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia – Pringgle Media today is proud to announce that their new app, iRelations, is now available exclusively for iPhone and iPod touch. iRelations is the first relationship bank account app in iTunes App Store. It helps users to manage and improve their relationships with people who are important to them such as their spouse, children, parents, siblings, relatives, friends, and close business associates.

iRelations allows users to keep 4 lists related to people who are important to them:
1. Relationship bank accounts containing deposit and withdrawal transactions based on positive or negative interactions with other people.
2. Things that people like or prefer which are possible deposits, and to make in the future.
3. Things that people dislike or hate which are possible withdrawals, and avoid doing such things.
4. Promises to keep and tasks to do for other people, and to actually keep or do.

Relationship bank account is a metaphor for the amount of trust that has been built up in a relationship. Such account keeps tracks of deposit and withdrawal transactions that are based on positive or negative interactions that one has with another person. “Deposits such as being loyal and keeping promises increase trust in relationships. Withdrawals such as being arrogant and breaking promises decrease trust in relationships.” said Waihon Yew, founder of Pringgle Media.

* Importing contacts who are important from the built-in Contacts app
* Creating a new contact or editing an imported contract from within iRelations
* Organizing contacts into groups and viewing all contacts associated with a group
* Adding a new group or changing the name of an existing group

* Automatic calculation and display of each relationship bank account’s balance

In addition to the core functions described above, iRelations also has a list of web resources that educate users how to manage and grow their relationships more effectively. “We plan to add more web resources in the future releases of iRelations.” said Yew.
