Violet Storm pushes iOS arcade action into the realm of the ridiculous

Mississauga, Ontario – Sad Cat Software, an innovative pioneer in mobile game development, is excited today to announce the release of Violet Storm for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. A graphically stunning arcade shooter, Violet Storm thrusts players into a vibrantly stylized neon world for some of the fastest, most frenetic, and most addicting shoot-em-up flying action available on iOS today. Boasting infinite levels, a wide array of wickedly powerful upgradable weapons and dozens of different enemies to blast, this game definitely brings the goods and all but guarantees you’ll get nothing short of an exhilaratingly fresh experience time and time again. Violet Storm is currently available for download on the Apple App Store for $0.99 in the Games category.

Mix together glowing graphics, strikingly smooth visual flares, and ridiculously over-the-top action that moves at breakneck speeds and you get Violet Storm. This “bird’s eye view” flying shooter was specifically designed to be about as far away from sensible and calm as possible. Violet Storm offers gamers access to what are arguably the wackiest and most over-powered weapons in its genre, twenty different enemies that burst into showers of colored electric glitter when shot, and a techno soundtrack to match Violet Storm’s high energy look and feel.

This game is as straightforward to play as it is addicting. Players float about their high contrast neon universe fighting off wave after wave of incoming enemies for as long as they can – the more baddies they kill the higher their scores climbs, its as simple as that. Violet Storm is an exceptionally well polished game. It features highly intuitive multi-touch controls, offers three different difficulty settings to stay accessible to any level of player, and even comes complete with interactive online leaderboards via Game Center integration. Don’t miss out on this gem of arcade mayhem, get to the App Store and blast through Violet Storm today.

Tapose redefines multitasking, collaboration & content creation on iPad

Seattle, Washington – Zanther, Inc., a mobile commerce firm, has today announced the release of Tapose for the iPad. Tapose is a revolutionary new multitasking, productivity, and content creation solution that provides users with a collaborative multimedia Journal, fully featured Web Browser, Interactive Maps, and more, all of which can be used in tandem to transform how users get things done on the go. To boot, since many of Tapose’s productivity features are connected to the cloud users have unprecedented power to collaborate with others in a unified virtual workspace in real time and across different platforms.Tapose is available for download on the Apple App Store for $2.99 in the Productivity category.

Created to help busy iPad owners do more, Tapose – aptly derived from the word juxtapose – is a multifunctional productivity resource set to bring the functionality of Microsoft’s inspired yet ill-fated concept of a duel-screen tablet to the iPad. Tapose’s ambitious ideals of bringing users a truly multi-purposed, content creation solution are perfectly illustrated by it’s expansively functional Journal feature, which serves as the flexible, collaborative heart of the app. Supported by the Cloud, this is more than just a powerful and elegantly designed word processor. In addition to writing and text editing/ formatting features, the Journal allows users to create drawings, integrate mixed media elements with the help of a practical Media Lasso Tool, and more all while working from a single intuitive Control Hub.

Understanding that flexible collaboration options and genuine productivity go hand in hand today, Tapose’s Journal allows multiple users to share and edit their entries, even if they are working from different platforms. Tapose also provides users with simultaneous access to apps and sharing portals. This enables users to email contacts, print documents via Air Print, and export content to Evernote or Dropbox without having to pause everything else to do so. If it seems like Tapose is trying to tackle and reinvent enough functions to fill a whole tablet, that may be because it is. With multitasking features that allow processes to literally run side-by-side, cloud based cross collaboration options that would make Google blush, and enough practical features to supplement almost every native iPad function, Tapose more than lives up to both its namesake and the unique Courier concept that served as its inspiration.
