The new startup company headed by the lead iOS developer, George Kharchenko, announced the release of their first project – Photoristic HD for iPad – the fastest iOS photo editor so far.
Unlike other photo apps of the kind, Photoristic HD is programmed to use the GPU resources of the device, when ordinary apps usually use CPU. Such technology insures amazing real-time performance even with large photos, with no freezing,
and allows to function faster than any other app working on CPU.
“There are so many photo apps on the market today. Most of them are similar and have poor features and filters. My mission was to create the highest quality photo software that would work fast and at the same time deliver perfect results for both professional photographers and those who just started photo editing. And I believe that I’ve finally accomplished my mission”, said George Kharchenko, the developer of Photoristic HD.
The uniqueness of the app lies not only in its fast performance, as it also provides advanced control over 8 separate colors, which gives unlimited freedom for creativity, along with such other features as black & white mode, split toning, live preset preview, general photo editing tools, and more.
Photoristic HD 1.0.1 is $4.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Photo & Video category.
Australian-based founders Michael Halligan and David Banks today is proud to introduce BodyWise, a brand new health and fitness tracking iPhone app that is unlike any other on the market, allowing you to learn more about your body and fitness. It beautifully and simply allows you to track over 40 different areas of your health and fitness from the things we often ignore like water or alcohol intake, to your favorites such as a calories, weight or even waist measurements.
* By far the widest array of health & fitness metrics of any app on the App Store (44 at time of launch)
* Track your own things to cut back on with our ‘Cutting back on tracking’ * nominate guilty pleasures to track (i.e. chocolate)
* One touch access to enter new results or graph your progress
* Set goals to build towards
* Share your progress over Facebook or Twitter
When creating BodyWise, Australian-based founders Michael Halligan (a marketer and an avid runner) and David Banks (personal trainer and wellbeing expert) wanted to build an app that tracked areas of your wellbeing that other apps neglected.
“We see some apps just tracking whether or not you completed a goal. BodyWise is an app for the ‘quantified-self’ movement. The numbers around your health and fitness tell a story and BodyWise lets you track those numbers to show progress, motivate you and keep you accountable” says Banks. “In short, BodyWise helps you to see a more complete picture of your exercise, sleep habits, mood and nutrition – and ultimately, improve your health & fitness over time.”
BodyWise compliments your nutritional app or your Nike Fuelband/Fitbit/UP wristband, giving meaning to your performance. The Tim Ferriss best-selling book ‘The 4-Hour Body’ was the inspiration for creating BodyWise “Ferriss presents over 50 tips to improve your health & fitness. Nothing out there let us track even a fifth of what we wanted to work on, so we built it ourselves” says Halligan.
Fortunately, any of the 44 measurable areas of your health that you don’t wish to focus on will be hidden from view, creating a clean, uncluttered interface to keep you on track on your own personalized health plan.
BodyWise: Health & Fitness Tracker 1.0 is Free and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Lifestyle category.
iPhone, iPad and iPod touch users who are looking for a revolutionary new photo manager app that uniquely brings together refreshing ease, cool style and exclusive features, can now download the Fotos from Saudi Gravity Co. With Fotos, users can simply and quickly tag their photos with searchable text, and then instantly find them with a single touch. It’s a powerful new way to explore and view albums and photos, and a welcome change from the boring, old fashioned approach of scrolling through an entire – and seemingly endless – library just to find a desired photo.

gallery. As a result, users never have to worry about accidentally erasing an important or perhaps even irreplaceable photo. Additional Fotos special features include:
- Various interfaces to choose from to suit different preferences, tastes and moods
- A creative display that adds a splash of style and elegance to a user’s viewing experience
- Easy social sharing through Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and email
“Fotos delivers a new and attractive experience, along with exclusive features, that will make users fall in love with their photos,” commented Ahmad Al-Debasi of Saudi Gravity Co. “And this is only the beginning of the Fotos revolution.

Independent Developer, Martin Pluisch today is thrilled to announce the release of PewDiePie Soundboard v.1.0, his new entertainment app developed for iOS. With a fan-base of more than 10,000,000 people, PewDiePie is one of the top subscribed people on YouTube. While a lot of people know him, there has always been a lack of Apps around “PewDiePie.”
This Soundboard is the first on the market and is after one day already in the top 100 of the entertainment section. The app contains more than 110 unique PewDiePie-quotes. Doesn’t matter if it’s popular (“BARRELS!”) or not so popular (“Bad Seal..”), every quote is entertaining. It’s a great app for all the PewDiePie fans out there, but also for those, who want to become one.
Marcus Roskosch, independent software developer and founder of Creating Your App, just released his new iOS app Network Toolbox for iPhone, iPod and iPad.
Despite of rumors about the NSA Prism scandal or Chinese Hackers attacking networks and servers around the world, there is something that each of us can do to increase cyber security.
Network Toolbox helps to identify security issues or wrong configurations of your local or public networks that often
makes it too easy for cyber attackers to break into your systems.
Even for an inexperienced user, it will now be easier than ever to check your home network for ports that are unintentionally left open to the web. By using this Network Toolbox app, such a security scan can be performed within seconds by following the included Guides and How-To’s. An included Glossary also explains terms from A like “Access control” to Z like “Zero day”.
For deeper security analysis, Network toolbox offers various tools to connect and inspect your networks. Regular Network tools like Browsers, Mail or FTP clients usually hide information about the connected server from the user. Network toolbox on the other hand can visualize such information as this information is often the first starting point for a cyber-attack. Cyber criminals can use this information to learn about your network and to find vulnerable devices.
By using this app, you will be able to identify such issues and once they are identified, they can often easily be solved.
“Don’t trust the evil,” Marcus said on his website. Don’t trust what suppliers of NAS Servers, Web-Cameras, Backup devices or Network router tells you. Often those devices are shipped poorly pre-configured and just claim to be secure. Be your own Hacker and try to compromise your own network to locate those devices and protect your data.
Network Toolbox 2.01.01 is $5.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Productivity category.
Air Lounge X Pty Ltd introduces Air Lounge X 1.0 for iOS. Air Lounge X’s founder and developer, Inga Birkedale, was inspired to create a new iPhone/iPad app after sitting for hours in the departure area of a foreign airport wishing that there was an airport lounge nearby. Little did she know there was a pay-per-use lounge less than 100 steps away. On discovery of the lounge (at boarding time) her partner suggested that she write an app listing all the lounges in the world so that they’d know where they could find them in the future. So she did.
Air Lounge X, launched today, is a directory of airport lounges throughout the world, with a focus on pay-per-use. There
are over 1500 lounges listed with 73 airlines featured and covers 141 countries and counting.
Travellers can see at a glance which lounges are available at each airport. (Symbols indicate whether they are pay-for-use lounges). The app will give you the lounge location, approximate entry costs and detail any pre-booking methods. Also included is information that is useful for Priority Pass members and links to related websites. Created for both iPhone and iPad.
Air Lounge X 1.0 is $9.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Travel category. It is a Universal App.
LPD Interactive, LLC today launched its to-do list and task management app Adoo in an effort to solve a major problem … check marks are old and no longer useful. Complete with new productive to use advancements such as the swipe-to-done feature that allows users to swipe their task to the left to complete or swipe to the right to do later, Adoo is well on its way to bringing the task list into the mobile age.
Furthermore, Adoo was made to help people across the world not only keep up with their daily to-do’s, but easily organize, set priorities and take action to become more productive. To do so, Adoo has several useful features that helps people input their to-do’s and get out of the app as fast as possible to start doing them, including:
* Swipe-to-done: As mentioned above, enter your to-do’s and complete them by swiping them to the left, which reveals a
green slider with a white checkmark. Awww, it’s easy being green. Sorry Kermit.
Swipe to do later: If you have items that don’t necessarily need to be done now, the swipe them to the right to do next or swipe even further to do later.
* Set reminders: If you have a hard date on which a to-do needs to be done, just add a notification to remind yourself later so it pops up on your mobile device. This is great for when you need to pick up the kids (don’t be that parent that forgets to pick up your kids …) or for reminding yourself to pick up a card for mom’s birthday.
* Prioritize: There are a few ways to prioritize … either set “now,” “next” or “later” when you create a to-do list from the pop-up menu after pushing done, swipe the task to the right if you’ve already created the to-do, or simple tap and hold the to-do to rearrange it from top to bottom, bottom to top or right in the middle. By default,
* Color coding: Categorize your to-do’s by color … green for finances, purple for home, red for office, etc.
* Take a picture: Ever been to the grocery store and forget what brand of soap your spouse told you to get? Don’t want to call to sound insensitive for forgetting? Just snap a photo and pull it up at the store and you’ll be a hero.
* Reactivate Tasks: Accidentally swiped to complete a task? Tap the menu button in the upper left and then tap on completed items to move it back. You can also completely delete all of your completed items from this list.
Adoo 1.0 is available as a free download on the App Store and is a Universal App. Premium features are available via In-App Purchase for an introductory price $.99 (USD).
