Do you have a four-legged friend? Are you constantly sharing stories and pictures of your dog? Are you always on the hunt for dog-friendly places? Are you looking for people to connect with that share your passion for dogs? Do you wish you could speak to a veterinarian whenever you have questions about your dog’s health? If you said yes to any of these questions, then you need to download Business Competence’s latest app, Dogalize.
Dogalize is a social network for dog owners. Users can create a profile for themselves and include information about their four-legged friends such as Name, Breed, and Character. The app then allows users to connect with other dog owners and see how they take care of their dogs.
However Dogalize is not an ordinary run-of-the-mill social network. The application is also the first to feature veterinary telemedicine. If your dog is in need of an immediate veterinarian consultation, Dogalize will connect you with an available vet via video call. This communication feature is also available for friends on your social network, meaning you can show off your dog’s talents in real time.
Here is a trailer of how the app works and what it offers to dog owners
Farseer Games has released Krashlander – Ski, Jump, Crash! for iOS, a major update to their 2D, platform-style, physics-powered ski game. Evil robots have destroyed the world and the player must ski down large mountain slopes and soar over gaping crevices to attack the robots and exact revenge. Utilizing a physics driven control mechanic from an abandoned game called Ski Stunt Simulator, Krashlander challenges players to destroy robots by crashing into them. It is a skill-based game with 40 progressively more challenging levels.
To navigate the game, the player uses a touch surface on the right side of the screen to control the physical posture of the skier. Adjusting the posture will help the skier avoid obstacles, increase speed, or jump off cliffs to take out the robots. Some levels may require multiple runs to destroy the target.
Here is the official trailer to give you a flavour of how Krashlander is played.
“The great thing about Krashlander is you can play each level a little differently,” says Phil Eaves of SlidetoPlay (20 Feb 2013). “You can do flips off of cliffs if you want, or you can play it safe. It’s a game that makes you feel cool when you pull off all the right moves.”

With the release a week ago of Microsoft’s Office for iPad, it wasn’t a question of if Apple updated iWork apps but only a matter of when. That when is today with the Cupertino company releasing updates for all three of the iWork apps – Keynote, Numbers and Pages – for both Mac OS X and iOS as well as the iCloud based versions.
Perhaps the biggest new features for all three apps on all three platforms is the new View Only function. This allows you to share a file but those whom you share it with are unable to edit the app. You can initiate this feature from your iOS device, iCloud or your Mac. Almost as important, you can now search all three for files by their name which will dramatically improve searching if you have dozens of files.
In Keynote on iOS, you can now tap-and-hold while you are presenting to illuminate on a slide. Like PowerPoint for
iPad, Keynote now has a laser pointer but also gives you an array of colour markers to highlight on a slide as you are presenting. It is provided in a small tray that pops up at the bottom of Keynote when you are in Presentation mode.
Finally there is also Retina display support now in all three of the apps for iCloud.
I have been an exclusive iWork apps user for nearly a year now and while there are still elements that the Microsoft apps do better – particularly when comparing Numbers and Excel – it works for me.
The iWork apps are either free or $9.99 each depending on if you were new to iPhone or iPad with the release of iOS 7. For Mac users, the apps are $19.99 each. That means, worst case, you are paying $89.94 for all them, $10 less than a year of Office 365. Plus the iOS versions are universal apps that work equally as well on your iPhone or iPad.
Zuhanden GmbH, a developer of productivity apps with more than 4 million downloads, has announced that Files United App will be free for a limited time. Everybody knows the problem: thousands of images, songs, or documents are scattered across a variety of cloud storage services, hard drives, computers, and mobile devices. Overview? Quick access? No chance!
Files United elegantly solves this problem by offering a central hub for all files, no matter where they are located. Along with the integrated document viewer, which supports standard Microsoft Office documents and PDFs, the app also features built-in players for audio files, images and videos. Even ZIP files can be opened or created with no trouble. Security-conscious users can enable the integrated password function to protect their private content as well as business documents.
The MyFitnessPal app for iPhone and iPad has been updated to bring you more features to the app that were until now only available on the MyFitnessPal website. The newest update now gives you the ability to track your nutrition goals in detail along with a friendlier invitation system for your friends and improved trend graphs.
The big new feature is the ability to track specific nutrition goals. So if you require a special diet – Low Sodium for example – you can now adjust the nutrition goal for sodium to get to your doctor recommended level. In all there are 17 nutrition goals you can set from the amount of fat and cholesterol you consume to tracking key vitamins like Vitamin C. The ability to set these macro goals has been a part of the MyFitnessPal website but not on the mobile apps.
MyFitnessPal has also improved the invitation system that is in the MyFitnessPal app to be a bit more friendlier than in
previous updates. This update focuses on Facebook and before if you invited a friend from Facebook to join MyFitnessPal and link up with you, they would only see your MyFitnessPal username. That’s fine in my case as my user name is ClintonAlliOSNews and most of my friends & family will figure out quickly enough it is me. But if your user name GymRateMistro, nobody will have a clue who you are on Facebook.
Now when you place an invite to a Facebook friend, it comes across to them with your Facebook name so they know who the invitation has come from on their friend’s list.
