The Whimmy music app links music with emotion. It lets the user categorize Spotify and iTunes music by adding songs to emotions. The heart of the app is the four emotions: Happy, Sad, Angry and Love. The user taps the emotion that fits her current state of mind and just the right music starts to play.
“Whimmy is the sequell to the iPhone app Life Soundtrack. We have added two essential improvments, besides changing
the name. People now have the oppurtunity to connect to their Spotify account which is a vital upgrade. A mode that we call ‘The Music Picker’ is a new and inspirational way to plow through your music libraries. We are very proud of this function. This makes setting Whimmy up a pure pleasure. ‘The Music picker’ plays one of your songs at random and you simply put it were it belongs. If you want to hear it when you are sad then you tap sad and so on.” says co-developer Magnus Axelsson at EFDapps.
Your favorite music will be there for you, at your fingertips, as soon as you need it. To cheer one up, to comfort or what the given occasion calls for. In Whimmy, the user adds songs to the emotions manually. This is a guarantee that the right music starts at the right occasion. Other apps in the same genre often use computer generated playlists. As we all know, computers have severe issues handling human emotion.
The Whimmy music app is a free download in the App Store in the Music category. It is designed for iPhone and requires iOS 7 or later to be on your device.

Toughturtle has announced the release of the next generation of StockWatch, their award-winning financial App for iOS. StockWatch – Next Gen has been redesigned and recoded from the ground up with a focus on aesthetics, ease of use, and the simplicity of Apple’s iOS7.
For the past five years, StockWatch, both for the iPhone and iPad, have been the most awarded and complete stock tracking App on the AppStore. With StockWatch – Next Gen, Toughturtle builds on the core of the previous versions and
takes the App into new directions with an expanded set of features and an iOS7 user interface.
“With StockWatch – Next Gen, we wanted to give the StockWatch community all the features they have asked for over the years”, said Todd Barnes, Lead Developer and CTO at Toughturtle. “With the release of iOS7, and all the changes that came with it, we knew that this was the best time to re-create StockWatch from scratch. ”
StockWatch – Next Gen is an easy-to-use, intuitive, and full featured market quote and portfolio tracking App that allows quick and easy tracking of investments with personalized watchlists and portfolios all from the convenience of your iOS device. Built around iOS7 and boasting 100% Retina Display compatibility, this Universal App (one download for all your devices) lets you share your data via iCloud, get stock alerts via push notifications, track over 50 worldwide exchanges, convert to 150 currencies, and so much more.
“Because Apple doesn’t allow upgrade pricing, StockWatch – Next Gen is being offered as a completely new app and not as an update”, said Todd Barnes. “This was a tough decision, but it was necessary given the business model of the Appstore. However, we decided to offer the App at 50% off at launch, so in effect, everyone who acts fast gets heavily discounted upgrade pricing.”

Atlantia Software today released InstaConcert for iOS, a new app that makes taking, sharing, and viewing photos while at a concert a snap. Featuring automatic location-based artist and venue discovery, 15 fun text skins for annotating shots, and effortless sharing to Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter, it enables users to quickly capture and share their best concert moments. Rounding out the feature-set of this streamlined, iOS 7 inspired app is a “Photos at this Show” feed that users can access to view Instagram photos that others have recently shared from the same concert.
“Attending concerts is one of my favorite pass-times” said Nick Bonatsakis, the app’s creator and sole proprietor at
Atlantia Software. “I started noticing a trend at shows, more and more people around me would be taking photos and sharing them to Instagram.”, he said. “So i thought to myself, wouldn’t it be cool if there were an app specifically designed to make taking concert photos a better experience?”
Regarding specifics around the app’s features, Bonatsakis remarks “The automatic artist and venue discovery was the key feature for me. Everyone’s annotating photos with text now days, and it bums me out to spend even a few moments of extra time at a concert typing it out instead of enjoying the music.” “The other feature I’m super excited about is the Photos at this Show Feed” he added. ” You’re always seeing all thees people taking photos from different parts of the venue, being able to easily browse them all seemed like a natural fit for the app.”
InstaConcert for iOS is available on the iTunes App Store for free, with in-app purchase of .99 Cents to unlock the full set of photo skins.
