Kick Timer for iPhone – Avoid Parking Tickets and More with Free App

Redondo Beach, California – Mobile Slinger, an app development company focusing on simplifying the process of everyday routines, Their new release, Kick Timer 1.1 is a perfect example of Slingers approach to creating efficient solutions for common tasks. This ingenious little reminder app boasts a super clean interface putting 5 important reminder alerts right at your fingertips.

“By utilizing the existing clock/timer already built into the iPhone and iPad, Kick Timer integrates a more efficient interface, which addresses 5 areas of daily life and allows the functionality and user experience to remain intuitive and familiar.” Explains Wayne Bradley, Founder of Mobile Slinger. Bradley’s IT background led him to start Slinger in 2010. “Before starting Slinger, I was a Systems Analyst, that experience, and my natural inclinations, inspires me to break down a typical processes and simplify it to most basic components. I use this same logic to create visually appealing screens, which are fast and sleek with greater simplicity than apps that are currently available.

“Bradley says, “We like to think of Slinger as a ‘Lifestyle Applications Company’ to make life easier. I’m actually building these apps to make my own life easier, and then provide them as free tools, so others can share in the benefits. “For example my city has gotten me for three hundred dollars this past year alone in fines, as I got there just a few minutes too late, or forgot to move my car on no parking days,” “I was really ticked about it, so that was why I created Kick Timer to stop it from happening to me, and others as well.”

Users can set an alert for the parking meter time, plus utilize a slider to adjust additional travel time to get back to the parking spot, so users can arrive early enough to miss getting fined or add to the meter.

Many cities only allow parking on one side of the street on certain days that is for cleaning or snow removal and cars are usually required to vacate by the early morning hours. Kick Timer helps there, too. Along with a day reminder, users can snap a photo of the street No Parking sign and tie it to the alert, so they are also reminded of which street they need to complete the task on.

Kick Time also has reminders to help with Laundry, Trash and Recycling Days to help users avoid forgetting these weekly routines. Gone are the days of laundry theft, having someone remove your cloths before you get back, or waking up hearing the trash truck and rushing frantically to get the garbage cans or recycle bins out to the curb before the trash truck passes leaving you with the awful smells of overflowing trash and bins.

Go live, and let the Kick Timer app remember the mundane but important reminders. Once you have it you wont know what you did without it.

Some of the Kick Timer features include:
* Sleek, attractive interface
* Easy to use and navigate
* 5 common reminder timers people use often
* Quick interface to set reminders
* Add a street sign photo for no parking days
* Easy view list of active reminders
* Kick Timer is a free application
* Free updates

Although Kick Timer is a free application, developers already have plans in the works to add updates, including more parking features and timers, in the near future.

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPod touch and iPad
* Requires iOS 4.0 or later
* 2.2 MB

Pricing and Availability:
Kick Timer 1.1 is Free and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Utilities category.

Anytube Lets You Watch Free iTunes Video Clips At Any Speed

Ottawa, Canada – In today’s world, there is an abundance of free video clips and free downloads that contain high quality information and educational content. Apple provides access to some amazing course content in the form of iTunes U and video podcasts. Chances are good that if you want to learn something it can be found amongst the more than 350,000 free lectures on iTunes U, including courses from Stanford, MIT and Berkeley, or in the huge variety of video podcasts.

With so much content available and so little time to watch it, Anytube closes an important gap. Anytube helps users make the most of their time by allowing them to choose how quickly the videos are played, slowing them down to 0.75x or speeding them up to 2.00x. The time remaining for each video at the adjusted speed is shown, meaning that users can adjust the speed to suit the time they have available. Also, rather than using traditional video playback controls, Anytube takes it up a notch by providing a unique and intuitive gesture-driven user interface.

Apple’s iTunes library makes it easy to watch videos on the go with Anytube. Subscribe to the desired feeds in iTunes, select episodes to synchronize to the iPhone or iPad and then play them back anytime using Anytube. Anytube goes one step further by opening the iTunes store on the iPad or iPhone to allow video downloads directly to the device without using your desktop! This means your videos are ready and waiting for when and where you want to watch them. Anytube is there to make it easier: faster access to your content, faster viewing.

“I often manage to squeeze in a video while waiting for my son to finish his weekend activities, like gymnastics or skating lessons. But with only an hour here or there, and videos that are on the order of an hour, I’m unable to get through very many in that short amount of time.” relates Anystone CTO Sean Kormilo. “With Anytube, I can squeeze twice as much viewing into the same amount of time. As an added bonus, it allows me to follow lectures at my pace, rather than the speed dictated by the video.”

Saving time is great, but slowing down a video also has advantages. Anystone advisor Chris McPhee points out: “I could see Anytube being of real use to people watching videos in a language learning or educational context.” Anytube has gestures for quickly jumping back to replay a section if it was missed the first time through. It also saves the last position and speed of each video so it’s easy resume if interrupted.

Speeding up or slowing down, Anytube helps people to learn anything, anytime, anyspeed.

Anytube is the latest in a growing portfolio of useful Apps from Anystone. It joins the popular audio App, Anytune, which allows musicians to slow down their music to speed up their learning.

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad
* Requires iOS 5.0 or later
* 1.1 MB

Pricing and Availability:
Anytube 1.0 is $3.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Productivity category.

Bullion Investor App – Now Powered by Interactive Data

London, United Kingdom – Digital Venture Projects Ltd is excited to announce that Interactive Data Managed Solutions Ltd has signed as the financial data provider for Bullion Investor App. This agreement will provide for all live and delayed market pricing needed for automatic investment valuations. This unique premium iOS app will enable bullion investors to track their gold, silver and platinum investments in real-time based on realistic precious metals prices. The iPad app is scheduled for release mid November 2011.

Accurate Market Data for Dynamic Valuations:
Market data will be delivered realtime to iPad devices, allowing investors who buy gold, silver and platinum bars, coins and other electronic assets, to benefit from live dynamic bullion valuations of their investments in their app portfolio. The Bullion Investor App website will also display relevant delayed market data. Further negotiations are still in place to provide accurate pricing of bullion-backed Exchange Traded Funds (ETF’s) as well. This should be finalised shortly and is expected to be available at the time of the initial release, if not shortly thereafter.

Relevant:
Unlike regular investment software heavily focused on stocks and shares only, Bullion Investor App will enable precious metals investors to view their investment information for all their precious metal assets in a single place. The app has been designed to help users feel more in touch with their bullion investments, as most physical assets are stored elsewhere for security purposes. In general, bullion investment valuations are difficult to calculate due to their physical nature as well as a result of needing to factor in buying and selling premiums. As seen with the recent significant fluctuations of the market gold and silver price, serious as well as novice bullion investors alike need a clear and up-to-date understanding of the current value of each of their precious metal investments. Bullion Investor App will focus on delivering a real reflection of the value of their assets, based on latest market information available.

Intuitive:
Designed to be informative, yet easy to use, the Bullion Investor App interface will allow users to intuitively add investments to their virtual app portfolio. These assets include coins, bars, Exchange Traded Funds and other custom precious metal investments. Easy to populate, with little further effort to maintain, Bullion Investor App will be a wealth of information to the bullion investor, even if just tracking the value of a single coin.

Platforms:
Bullion Investor App will capitalise on the iPad (and iPad 2) form-factor as well as processing ability to delivery visually appealing informative graphs. Although specifically designed for the iPad (and iPad 2), the next iteration will focus on a more streamlined version for the iPhone/iPod, followed by a comprehensive enhanced version for the Mac. Sync functionality will also be included for those releases.

Functionality:
Users will have the ability to edit, delete and sell any assets in their virtual portfolio. The app will not support actual purchases of these investment vehicles, but will allow investors to capture this information quickly, allowing their portfolio to be easily tracked. Features currently under development include:

* Investment summary overview
* Current asset value based on latest market prices
* Incorporation of buying and selling premiums
* Detailed graphs for performance tracking
* Bullion investor library for new investors
* Bullion portfolio analysis and calculators
* Price alerts and notifications

Device Requirements:
* iPad
* iPad 2
* iOS 4.0 or higher

Pricing and Availability:
Pricing is yet to be determined, however, the application will be available worldwide exclusively through the Apple App Store in the Finance category.
