Word Slug, the first publicly released game from Altered Edges, LLC, is available now. The app offers an interactive word game experience with quirky slug characters and head-to-head play. It mixes standard build-a-word play with point bonuses based on the composition of the word. Often the number of tiles played is less important than finding words that match the revolving bonus criteria. Players find the game easy to play yet challenging to master, giving it lasting appeal.
Head-to-Head Game Play – Players can challenge random opponents or friends
Easy to Play, Hard to Master – Mixing standard build-a-word play with the Game Slugs makes for a simple game to pick up and play – Maximizing points takes a bit more skill when a shorter word can be worth much more than the longer option by meeting the Game Slugs’ criteria for point bonuses.
es, Drill Sergeant is a drill sergeant themed fitness app available for iPhone. The free and full featured mobile app comes bundled with engaging content and challenging missions. The app, developed by CodeKiwi Pty Ltd., is initially being distributed on Apple’s iTunes store.
The Yes, Drill Sergeant app is built with the primary goal of making fitness training a little more enjoyable, employing the use of audio training coaches in the form of drill sergeants. Offering both encouragement and entertainment the sergeants keep things interesting. Simply select your sergeant, mission and favourite music; the sergeants will issue ‘orders’ and track progress made. Feedback on both complete and incomplete missions provides motivation to push that requisite bit harder.
“The app is ideal for motivating people like me between sessions with a live personal trainer,” says Josh Bondy, the lead developer. “Running and park exercises are effective but boring. So we came up with the idea of Yes, Drill Sergeant. It’s a fun way to keep motivated while exercising in the park.”
Launching in time for the holiday season and is ideal for holding off weight gain and keeping those New Year’s resolutions to get in shape. The app supports training missions of various lengths, so even with limited time, it’s a matter of grabbing the phone and starting a stimulating and beneficial workout.

Primitive Response Technology, LLC (PRT) wants 2014 to be the year everyone skips New Year’s resolutions, replacing them with realistic, long-term goals using their CraveMate app, PRT’s health and mindful assistant apps for iPhone.
Designed to help anyone set realistic long-term goals, monitor progress and communicate wins and losses with the world or a few good friends, the CraveMate app remind and support users to make the lifestyle changes that, over time, turn into healthy habits.
“Many of us think we can change our lives simply with a resolution, but it’s exceptionally difficult to do. Plus, resolutions are shortsighted. Positive, lasting lifestyle change requires a focus on realistic, long-term goals that you can manage and achieve,” said Thomas DiGiacinto, PRT’s CEO.
The reason so many resolutions fail is a matter of biology. Making a resolution stick requires willpower and that involves the prefrontal cortex of the brain (the area behind your forehead). But a resolution, such as dropping 10 pounds, without addressing the behavior, overloads the brain without preparing it for the ultimate goal.

Parachuting Frog has introduced Solisqr (pronounced SOLI – SQUARE like SOLITAIRE) which is a minimalist and stylish board game and puzzle. Based on the classic one player board game of peg solitaire, the aim is to eliminate squares on the board to leave only one in the central position. Play a relaxing game or against the clock.
Built around the idea of peg solitaire, players jump one square over another to try and leave only one square left on a cross-shaped grid. A square can jump over an adjacent square if there’s a blank square past that adjacent square. This
eliminates the jumped-over square. There are 32 squares on the board, and the goal is to leave just one remaining.
Main features are:
* 5 different game modes
* Minimalist design ideal for your iOS7 device

* 7 languages

UK-based app developers Interealtime has launched their Light Boost app, a brand new light boosting camera that takes brighter, clearer photos and videos in low light. It’s a universal app that works on both iPhone and iPad. Having built the first night vision app for iPhone with realtime image enhancement (True NightVision) and the first true long exposure app for iPhone (NightCap), their new offering promises the best possible performance in all conditions, from merely indoor to moonlight.
The Light Boost app offers a fine balance of high performance and ease of use. Simply open the app and take a photo or video, and in low light the results are consistently brighter and less grainy than the regular Camera app.
In very low light, the Light Boost app has additional tricks to squeeze every last bit of performance from the camera:
- Light Mode instantly boosts brightness while preserving image clarity
- Night Mode puts the camera into a special mode optimised for ultimate low light performance
- Grain Reduction Mode helps reduce image noise
- Zoom control (camera-style for easy, smooth zoom)
