Pixelnetica has announce the release of SharpScan, a free iOS app enabling iPhone and iPad users to use their mobile devices as handheld document scanners has been updated. The new SharpScan app release adds full iPad support with new scalable UI, and becomes an iOS Universal Application. Adding new image processing functionality, this last version of mobile scanning app improves noise reduction to facilitate higher digital noise levels of flash-less iPad hardware.
The latest release of Pixelnetica’s free mobile scanning app turns any iPhone, iPod touch or iPad into a fully featured mobile scanner. The latest release features a scalable UI and becomes a Universal Application, ensuring smooth functionality and sharp look even on the latest high-resolution displays. The new user interface is optimised for the larger screen, enabling easier and more straightforward workflow compared to the iPhone version. Most functions are now accessible via a single click thanks to the larger, more spacious iPad display.
The addition of automated noise reduction is aimed at iPad users having no built-in flash available. The newly added noise reduction algorithms suppress camera noise producing clean, sharp images one expects from a high-end scanner.
“SharpScan takes advantage of iPad’s more powerful hardware and bigger screen when scanning documents”, says Dmitry Harchenko, Pixelnetica CEO. “SharpScan makes use of the extra CPU power by enabling additional processing without slowing down the scanning, automatically adapting to specific camera models installed in various Apple devices and applying a perfect profile.”

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.”

One of the most annoying things users report about iOS 7 is the way it handles the placement and positioning of wallpapers. No matter how hard you try to pinch and drag your picture, which you were able to do in iOS 6 (the way you were able to do in iOS 6), iOS 7 zooms back out and creates often dissatisfying backgrounds. This is because there is only one way to position the background image and you can not influence that. These frustrating times are over thanks to the Wallpaper Fix app.
The Wallpaper Fix app lets you freely resize, rotate and position your picture in order to use it as your custom iOS 7 wallpaper in seconds. iOS 7 needs wallpapers to be of specific dimensions in order to work properly with the parallax effect. In Wallpaper Fix you just position your picture the way you want to and Wallpaper Fix automatically does the rest for you. It is as simple as that!
Check out the YouTube video outlining how the app works
The Wallpaper Fix app is a universal app and it is .99 Cents in the App Store. There are no additional in-app purchases so this is the true price of this handy little utility. It does require that you be running iOS 7 on your iPhone or iPad.

App developer Rory Buckley has announced the release of Sleep Sounds (Relaxing White Noise and Ambient Music) for iOS devices. The Sleep Sounds app contains a variety of nature sounds & ambient background music to help promote sleep aid and general relaxation. The sounds and music can either be played individually or mixed together, allowing the user to create their own custom relaxation experience.
The Sleep Sounds app has been developed with a clear and simple user interface, allowing the user to ease into their relaxation experience without any unnecessary actions. The nature sounds vary from ocean noise to gentle rain, with the added option of relaxing background music, such as piano or zen. Altogether the free version comes with 12 sounds, with
an in-app purchase option to upgrade to unlock an additional 12.
With the app appealing towards users looking for general calming, help with sleeping or meditation etc, Rory Buckley felt it completely necessary to build a sleep timer function into the app. This feature comes with a large selection of preset times that can be set and activated with a single touch. Once the sleep timer fires, the app will turn off all playing sounds, allowing the users device to enter standby mode (saving much needed energy consumption). The app also allows the user to multitask, enabling the user to do other tasks (email, safari, use other apps etc) while the sounds are playing.
The Sleep Sounds app is a universal app and is a free download in the App Store. There is an in-app purchase available for .99 Cents that will remove the ads that support the free version and will unlock an additional 12 sounds in the app to help you relax.
