Put your iPhone in its place and get back to your life with inCharge

Tel-Aviv, Israel – Enddiction, an innovative new mobile application developer, has today announced the release of inCharge for the iPhone. The cure for constant iPhone-induced interruption, inCharge helps users free themselves from the burden of perpetually playing games, hanging out on social networks, and continuously checking emails. The app is super straight forward, offering a simple timed self-exclusion system to effectively wall off users from the many temptations of their phones. As an added bonus, this unique tool provides users graphs showing them how and when they use their phones, a function that can double as a monitoring utility for parents to check their kids’ phone use. Normally $2.99, for the next three days inCharge will be available for download on the Apple App Store’s Lifestyle and Productivity categories for $0.99 to celebrate its release. A free Lite version of the application, aptly named inCharge Lite, is available as well.

Idea behind inCharge is simple. In veritable anti-smartphone app, this innovative utility allows users to limit themselves from incessantly toying around with their iPhones, at least as much as they’ll allow themselves to be. Once inside the app users simply choose how long they’d like to ignore their phone – anywhere from a few minutes to hours on end – and click start. When running, inCharge turns the iPhone’s screen into a Safe-Zone with countdown clock, placing other apps out of view and giving users the push they need to put their phones away.

Since the app’s emphasis is on improving users’ own will power inCharge work on the honors system, leaving users free to bypass the app’s Safe-Zone if they need to make a call or simply can’t resist the urge to tweet, Facebook, or email any longer. Giving into mobile temptation won’t go unnoticed by inCharge though. The app will regularly give users notifications to remind them that their lock-out period is still active and encouraging them to stick to their guns and give the phone a rest. Losing yourself or a friend to your iPhone? Kick the habit and re-enter the real world with inCharge! Love someone who cannot put his or her phone away? Apple’s Gift-This-App option allows you to give inCharge to those you really care about.

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad
* Requires iOS 4.2 or later
* 2.6 MB

Pricing and Availability:
inCharge 0.9 is $2.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Lifestyle category.

Spanish Word Wizard for iOS – A Unique Talking Spelling App for Kids

Sophia Antipolis, France – L’Escapadou today is pleased to announce Spanish Word Wizard 1.0 for iOS, a Spanish version of their Word Wizard app that lets kids hear the sounds of letters and words, and provides spelling practice with a customizable Word list of more than 1,400 questions and answers. Featuring advanced text to speech capabilities, the app can pronounce an unlimited number of original words and spell-check an unlimited number of Spanish words.

“We’re happy to bring Word Wizard to Latino and Spanish families who use the iPad or the iPhone for education. We believe that it will help kids learn to read, write and spell Spanish as the English version does.” said Pierre Abel, founder of L’Escapadou.

The English and French versions have already won many accolades including:
* “…Powerful language-learning tool that is ideal for a child learning to read” – New York Times
* Editor’s Choice Award for Excellence in Design from Children’s Technology Review
* “…A fantastic app for young children” – GeekDad Blog, Wired Magazine
*”…I love the talking alphabet…I will certainly recommend it to early educators.” Mary Ellin Logue, Ed.D, Early Childhood Education, University of Maine
* Featured by Apple as ‘New and Noteworthy’ for iPad and iPhone in US
* Featured by Apple as App of the Week for iPhone in France (French Version)

In the talking Movable Alphabet, kids see all the letters at the bottom of the landscape oriented screen and hear the name or the sound of each letter aloud when they touch it. This multi-sensory approach, made famous through the writings of physician and educator Maria Montessori, engages the child completely. Each sense reinforces the other, and a wide range of cognitive styles is accommodated. Using the technology of the iPad/iPhone, Word Wizard enhances and amplifies the experience of seeing, touching, and hearing letters that young children have had in Montessori classrooms for more than 100 years. The app can be seen as taking the best of the Montessori method and making it still better.

The talking Movable Alphabet lets kids drag one letter at a time on to a grid (that automatically aligns the letters) or a blank page. As each letter is added to a word-in-progress, Word Wizard speaks the name of the letter aloud (or optionally, its phonetic sound) and then pronounces the proto-word, demonstrating how each additional letter alters the pronunciation of the whole. The child may never create a word in the Spanish language, but he or she is completely free to get to know the building blocks of words on their own terms. When the last letter of a correctly spelled word is put in place, the entire word is surrounded by white light, all the letters grow to remove the spaces between them, and the word is clearly pronounced.

Talking Movable Alphabet Highlights:

* 3 voices: 1 Latino voice (Female) and 2 Castilian voices (Female and Male)
* Spell checker highlights unrecognized words
* Spanish Phonics or letter name when a letter is touched in the alphabet
* Read each word or all the words created as a sentence.
* Grid or free placement mode
* Voice Transformer (speed,tone) for added fun
* Cursive and block letters
* Uppercase or lowercase letters for block letters
* 2 backgrounds

Familiar and at ease with letters, phonemes, syllables, words, and pronunciation, children can leave Movable Alphabet mode and visit Spelling Quizzes, where they can put into practice all they have learned and play a semi-formal game with rules and scoring. Each spelling quiz consists of 10 words. Spanish Word Wizard prompts “Escribe ‘madre'” and the child drags each letter as they did before to spell the word. If necessary, they can touch the Hint button to receive hints one letter at a time. When all 10 words have been spelled, the app displays the number of correct answers and the number of hints used.

Spelling Quiz Highlights:
* more than 1,400 words is organized into categories such as Family Members,Numbers , Colors, Animals, Body, 1,000 Most Frequently Used Words,…
* Create custom Word Lists by entering custom words and sentences, and even share lists
* Hints are available if kids do not know how to spell a word
* A variety of colorful animations are displayed when a word is completed
* Once a quiz is completed, a report is displayed and fun, interactive animations are available as a reward
* Scores are kept for each list

Children, parents, and teachers can quickly and easily create custom Word Lists. Type in a list of words separated by commas, or even sentences. Though the word may not be in the app’s Word List it will properly pronounce it and go on to score the quiz. This expansion capability makes Word Wizard a flexible tool for learning special vocabularies and terms, practicing words challenging to particular students, and challenging super-spellers with spelling bee favorites.

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch
* Requires iOS 4.0 or later
* Universal app optimized for display on all iOS devices
* 228 MB

Pricing and Availability:
Spanish Word Wizard 1.0 is only $3.99 (USD) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Education category. Review copies are available upon request.

SMEStorage adds support for EMC Atmos & PogoPlug to its Cloud Appliance

London, United Kingdom – SMEStorage has announced that it has enhanced support for using Private Cloud Storage with its Cloud Appliance by integrating the EMC Atmos and PogoPlug Storage Clouds. The Cloud Appliance unifies data from over 30 different files stores and SaaS services, enabling such services to be accessed and managed from a single ‘Cloud file system’ whilst adding Cloud Governance and e-compliance features across all Clouds used.

Access to using EMC Atmos and PogoPlug Clouds is not only available to business Cloud FileServer users but is also available to free users of the SMEStorage multi Cloud Service.

Once a user or business adds these Clouds into their Cloud DashBoard, data from these Clouds can be accessed and managed directly from SMEStorage clients. These include native Mac,Linux and Windows local Cloud Drives and desktop Sync Tools and also native access from iOS, Android, BlackBerry and Windows Phone 7 mobile devices.

CEO Ian Osborne stated, “We see a big push for companies who want to not only manage their own private data, but also be able to integrate different data endpoints for unified access and management in addition to having some control and governance around use of this data. This is what our Cloud File Server provides.”

“Personal or small business users can instantly setup a Cloud File Server using a PogoPlug device without needing to install any software or move any of their files. Everything can be setup and administered via the web unless a user wished to install desktop client access tools.”

“For larger businesses and Service Providers who use EMC Atmos. they can install the Cloud Appliance on their premises or in their data centre and leverage the tools and clients, including added value features that overlay all Clouds that are mapped to the Appliance such as WebDav, FTP, and Amazon S3 API access.”

“For Service Providers these tools and clients are available to be white labelled and customised, and indeed we are in trials with several large global ISP’s. For these ISP’s the ability to provide value added tools and services on top of EMC Atmos as well as the ability to integrate access to other competitive Clouds is a huge value differentiator.”

The Cloud File Server Appliance is available as a SaaS Service, as a hybrid on-premise solution, and as an appliance for Service Providers to use with EMC Atmos, OpenStack, Eucalyptus, public clouds, or their own home grown Storage Solutions.
