The Amazing Hunt For iPhone And iPad Makes Google Maps The Playing Field

Bridgewater, New Jersey – 288 Vroom LLC, creators of over 25 top-selling iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad apps, announces The Amazing Hunt Around The World, a new type of puzzle game for the iPhone platform that uses a customized in-app version of Google Maps and the entire world as its playing board.

The object of the game is to solve riddles that identify real-world locations and then pinpoint each location on the map. Completing a location reveals the clues to the next destination. It’s a simple concept, but not as simple to beat. The riddles are mysterious and almost detective-worthy, but solvable with crafty thinking and a little help from the app’s built in web browser, which is essential in figuring out some of the riddles and even in helping locating destinations. The app also includes a Travel Journal which automatically saves each discovered location’s picture, riddle, and shortcut to it on the map.

While the riddles are mind-bending fun and will certainly keep players coming back for more, it’s also the prize of dropping the pin on the correct destination, finally seeing a green pin instead of a red one and then zooming in on the satellite image and actually seeing that place for real and what’s around it. It’s arguably one of the best Achievements possible in any game. As the game goes on, some destinations, including some of the larger ones, become very challenging to locate and players must get creative to hunt down places on the map. Some locations in the games will be well-known, others are hidden gems, but all locations were specifically chosen by the developers because they look pretty cool on Google Maps.

Each version of the app has already gotten great reviews in iTunes AppStores around the world. Including many people calling it the ‘Best App Ever’.

Three versions of the app are currently available in the iTunes AppStore. Episode 1: American Adventure takes the player on a journey to almost 50 destinations across the United States. Then there’s the Haunted Halloween Edition, which travels to almost 20 ghostly, horror and other scary related locations around the entire world. Lastly, there is a free ‘lite’ version of Episode 1: American Adventure that allows the user to try the first five locations of the game.

Each version is complimented with a fitting soundtrack. American Adventure has a distinct American sound of Rock, Jazz, Blues, R&B, and Country. The Haunted Halloween Edition has an extra creepy mood-setting soundtrack that may make some players want to keep the lights on. The free lite version does not include all of the songs.

Pushing Weight 1.4 released for iOS – Popular Weight Training Journal

Stockholm, Sweden – After 8 months of development and listening to the Swedish market, Slickerthanmost Applications today is thrilled to announce the release and immediate availability of Pushing Weight 1.4, their popular fitness app for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. With the idea to provide a worthy replacement for a pad and a pen, the developers aim is to produce the best available weight training journal for people at beginner and intermediate-level at the gym. The design is built around calendar dates rather than the workout-program-approach that seem to have been something of a standard approach up until now.

“A strict program approach is filled with problems”, according to the developers, “as many gym goers don’t really need to know in detail what exercises they are going to perform before they are actually at the gym, and a good weight training journal needs to give the flexibility for that”.

Development has focused on three main areas, namely planning, tracking and logging of workouts, with the idea that it should work while at the gym between sets and exercises.

Selected features:
* Calendar that displays color coded workout sessions
* Graph plotting of weight per set, reps per set, minutes, 1-rep-max and more
* Preloaded with the best of the classic exercises
* Workout log displaying previous sets while logging new ones

Feedback from some of our customers:
* “Finally a really good weight training log. Simple and stylish. Good job!.” – ecmik
* “Definitely a good and priceworthy app. Like it a lot after just using it for a short while. It’s simple and does what it should.” – Ohan81

Supported Languages:
* US English and Swedish

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad
* Requires iOS 4.0 or later
* 5.8 MB

Pricing and Availability:
Pushing Weight 1.4 is $2.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Health & Fitness category. Please feel free to contact us for promo codes or further material.
