Movavi Mac Cleaner Improves System Performance and Saves Disc Space

Saint Louis, Missouri – Movavi today is proud to announce the release of Mac Cleaner 1.3 for Mac OS X. Movavi Mac Cleaner effectively and efficiently restores your Mac’s performance: it scans the entire computer, recognizing files that are not (or no longer) needed while leaving alone personal files.

Users would be surprised at how much of their Mac’s hard drive space is occupied by files that serve no useful purpose. Movies and music they’ve forgotten about, system cache files, unused applications, old games, duplicate photos – all this takes up multiple gigabytes of valuable storage space and significantly slows down system performance. The free demo version is available for download from the Movavi website.

Here are the kinds of content Mac Cleaner will safely dispose of:
* iPhoto backup copies
* Unused OS X localizations
* Unused and/or unremovable applications
* Trash bins
* System logs
* Cache files
* Large and old files

According to Movavi product manager Yuri Latyshev, “Our research has shown us that regular system cleaning can free up at least 1GB of disc space every day. Even a new Mac contains about 2.5 GB of files that the average user will never use. So we wanted to help people solve this problem while not deleting anything the system or the user really needs. We designed this cleaning software to do just that – and it’s 100% safe.”

Once the computer has been scanned, the data is categorized into different areas: System Cleanup, Trash Cleanup, Large and Old Files, Unused languages, and other useful sections. This approach enables users to delete unnecessary files manually section by section, but if they don’t want to wade through everything, they can just hit the AutoClean button to remove all unnecessary files.

Another helpful tool included in Mac Cleaner is the Uninstaller; this handy program can completely removes unused programs, including OS X applications like Chess, Calendar, and Mail from any Mac, along with their system folders. This process will free up gigabytes of space occupied by applications that normally cannot be removed. By restoring disc space and removing unused programs, Uninstaller can dramatically improve a Mac’s performance.

Mac Cleaner is continuously updated as part of the license fee to ensure the latest tools can be recognized and addressed appropriately. The next round of enhancements will include:

* RAM cleaning to prevent slowdowns
* Deletion of duplicate files
* File shredder for permanent, unrestorable file deletion

Pricing and Availability:
The full version of Mac Cleaner 1.3 is available from Movavi’s official website for $29.95 (USD). The trial version of Movavi Mac Cleaner has no time limits, but the cumulative volume of junk files is limited to 500 MB.

Dare Do Be Announces Beta Test of Pendilly – Unique Messaging App

Paris, France – Dare Do Be today is proud to announce open beta testing of Pendilly, an up-and-coming messaging app for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices. Pendilly allows anyone to type a message, or capture or import a photo or video, and then choose a specific future time to deliver the message. The recipient then receives a notification letting them know a message is on the way, but doesn’t tell them who sent it, or when it will arrive! The company is inviting everyone to beta test Pendilly, and get in on the fun of the app before it goes public.

How Do Users Make a Pendilly?

1. Anyone can simply type a message, or take a photo (or import one from the camera roll), or capture a video (or import one from the camera roll) to send to the lucky recipient. Photos and videos add to the mystery and enjoyment of a Pendilly message.

2. Select a specific time in the future to deliver the Pendilly. Delivery times can range from a minimum of 1 hour, all the way up to a maximum delay of 1 month. The recipient will receive a notification that a Pendilly message is on its way, but they won’t be told who it’s from, or what the message is about.

3. Optional “Why” tags add to the fun! Why tags are sent to the Pendilly recipient to view before the delivery date. The recipient won’t know anything else about the upcoming Pendilly message before it is delivered. Be creative, drive the recipient crazy with curiosity with hints about the message via the Why tags.

4. Send the Pendilly directly to the recipient to be delivered at the scheduled time. Their anticipation will continue to build until the Pendilly is finally delivered. After the recipient reads the Pendilly, it’s almost guaranteed to receive a great reaction!

Dare Do Be is inviting iOS users ages 15 to 25 who are interested in beta testing Pendilly, to get in on the fun of the app before it is is released to the general public. The ideal beta tester is well connected on social networks, with at least 3 to 4 friends who would be willing to test the apps along with them. Users with an active social life, and who are involved in their local community are the exact type of testers Pendilly is looking for!

The development phase is nearing the end, and Pendilly is ready to meet its new beta users during July. Since the end of 2014, more than 6,000 people have signed up. Unfortunately, Pendilly can only welcome 1,000 members to join this exciting beta phase of the adventure. The first 1,000 qualified users who confirm will become official beta testers of Pendilly.

“From day one, our focus is to use time to bring emotional value to our users. This is just the beginning and we are already cooking much more,” says Pendilly founder Samy Allaham. “Pendilly is looking for users who have plenty of experience in the social networking biosphere and willing to create their day, week or month, in a simple way. Our mission is to help people create their near future in a simple, yet powerful and effective way. It can be as simple as sending a Pendilly to a friend to have fun, give a special someone your attention, help anticipate an event, remember a moment, or surprise a friend.”

iOS users who have an iPhone 4S or newer device, running iOS 8.0 or higher are welcome to apply for the Pendilly beta test at the Pendilly website. While there, users are invited to share the beta test news with friends and family on Twitter, Facebook, and Google+.

The company aims at empowering people who dare to create the future, by using time and tags to send messages into the future with more emotions and more fun. Time is a precious and powerful emotional medium and we use it to connects us on a deeper level. Copyright (C) 2015 Dare Do Be. All Rights Reserved.

Monochrome 3.0.1 is now available at the Mac App Store

Charlotte, North Carolina – einstein’s legacy v2.0, LLC today is proud to announce the release and immediate availability of Monochrome 3.0.1 for OS X, an application for converting batches of color images to grayscale. Monochrome gives you control over the conversion process and applied effects, so you can create a consistent set of output images. The 3.0.1 Update improves UI responsiveness, adds a histogram tool and additional GPU-based image effects and provides Full Screen and high-resolution drawing support.

“We have added a number of features that make Monochrome an effective tool for professionals and amateurs who need to process large batches of images and interactively explore the possibilities for image post-processing,” says einstein’s legacy Chief Product Officer Douglas A. Welton. “With this we revamped the user interface making it more responsive and intuitive. We added support for Full Screen mode and high-resolutions graphics drawing. We introduced keyboard navigation from the preview mode. And, of course, we added a new collection of effects.”

Monochrome 3.0.1 includes the following key features:

Improved Conversion:
Monochrome gives you the option to convert images using an RGB or HSL-based color mixer, simple or advanced selective color desaturation, monotone color re-mapping or Core Image presets. All rendering is done on the GPU for fast, effective processing.

Batch Processing:
Monochrome exports converted images using a background task. This allows you to continue work on other activities without waiting for the image processing to finish. The Activity Monitor is now integrated with the User Notification Center so that users can, unobtrusively, be notified about the state of their exports.

Image Previews:
Monochrome features six modes for viewing images: original image, the converted image, two overlay modes showing both the original and converted image in the same location, and two stacked modes showing the original and converted images side-by-side. The Toggle key lets you easily jump between image preview modes. Users can now navigate between images by using the arrow keys to move amongst the tray items. Monochrome now provides a histogram display so that users can check the chromatic characteristics of their source and output images.

Monochrome can share converted images via e-mail, using popular internet services (e.g., Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn etc.) or with local applications like iPhoto or Aperture. Also, you can drag’n’drop or cut’n’paste the preview image to other applications.

Monochrome provides three templates for printing your images: one image per page, an image grid contact sheet, or image slices. Print operations can also be saved as PDF files.

Slide Shows:
Monochrome dynamically creates a slide show from the converted images in your project. Slide shows display full screen and can be navigated manually or as a timed slide show. Slide shows can now be played on any display connected to your computer.

Image Effects:
The rendering pipeline now includes more than thirty new effects, such as edge burning, X-rays, motion blurring and vintage photo processing. For efficiency, these effects are rendered on the GPU.
This update includes new effects management tools that allows users to bypass, disable and enable active effects quickly.

Single Window User Interface:
Monochrome operations have been consolidated into a single window, giving you an easy and effective tool for manipulating your images.

System Requirements
* OS X 10.10 or higher
* 64-bit processor
* 3 MB disk space

Pricing and Availability:
Monochrome 3.0.1 is available for $19.99 (USD) from the Mac App Store (in the Photography category).

An app that lets kids choose the ingredients for their story

Paris, France – What will happen if I stir a wizard, a skeleton and a mouse together in a cauldron? Little readers of Stories and Magic Dust for iPad toss three ingredients into the big white cauldron and a story is created, just for them. A skeleton, a wizard, a dragon, a mouse and the wind – these ingredients are turned into magic dust that transforms into a special bedtime story. The reader decides who stars! There’s a story of a skeleton who’s afraid of a mouse, a story about a wizard who makes a dragon turn colors, a story about a frozen castle where the wind blows and more. The cauldron gives life to ten stories in all. Some of the same characters and references appear in more than one story. In each tale, the child participates in the action by pushing, touching or shaking. There’s an entire tiny, magical world living in the tablet! What will the story be tonight?

This app is perfect for bedtime stories, whether read by a favorite adult or by the app. It is presented in bilingual format and the stories can be played aloud in either English or French: use one or the other, or both! It’s also a lot of fun to compare the differences between the two and learn some French in the process.

The stories are written by Marie-Florence Gros, illustrated by Bertrand Dubois, with music by Jean-Marie Leau. The English version was translated by Eve Lindemuth Bodeux. English narration : Bobbin Beam. French narration : Marina Carrere d’Encausse.

Follow4Fame is an Effective Way to Add Instagram and Twitter Followers

Cupertino, California – People who want to massively increase their Instagram and Twitter followers with a simple and easy swipe, can now head to the App Store and download Azure Group’s unique new app Follow4Fame. Available at no cost, Follow4Fame is refreshingly easy to use, and is already earning rave 5-star reviews from users with comments such as: “This is the easiest way to get more exposure for your Instagram photos”, “No need for big conversations with this great app”, and “Looks beautiful, designed to make things easy and efficient”.

Essentially, there are three steps to get started:
* Users log in via Twitter or Instagram
* Next, they browse and select categories that match the type of content they publish (e.g. fashion, cooking, travel, etc.)
* After that, with a fun, gamification-like flair, users browse through profiles of interesting people, and either follow them with a right-swipe, or skip them with a left-swipe

Users also earn tokens simply by following people, which they can then spend to add followers to their own Instagram and Twitter accounts. They can also opt for an in-app VIP upgrade to improve their token conversion rate. And to make the service better for everyone and promote thoughtful rather than random following, users who un-follow someone within 48 hours of following them are penalized.

And of course, while users are having fun following interesting new people, other Follow4Fame users are browsing their profile. Each time they’re added, users receive a pop-up notification.

“There are many ‘get more follower’ apps and services out there, but they merely add bulk followers; many of whom don’t exist, or belong to people who have absolutely no interest in following or being followed,” commented Abdulaziz Alrajhi of Azure Group. “But Follow4Fame is totally different and far better. Users have total control over who they follow and who they don’t. They also don’t have to worry about having 10,000 followers one day and 100 the next, because there’s no risk of mass un-follows.”

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
* Requires iOS 7.0 or later
* 64.9 MB

Pricing and Availability:
Follow4Fame 1.6.18, the new no-cost app that is the most effective way to add Instagram and Twitter followers, one fun swipe at a time, is available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Productivity category.

mimiCopy upadated to Ver.1.5 – The Standard Musician’s App

Tokyo, Japan – The gold standard for musicians, mimiCopy, an audio player for ear training, is now updated! Software developer and content creation firm ART Teknika, Inc. (headquarters in Shibuya-ku, Tokyo) is updating its iOS app, mimiCopy, to version 1.5 on the iTunes App Store. mimiCopy is geared at guitarists and other musicians and allows them to record and copy sections of audio by ear.

mimiCopy has enjoyed the support of numerous musicians and has become the go-to app for those training by ear. Playback speed can be toggled without changing the musical interval, and select clips of a track can be played in a loop, allowing for easy repeat listening and learning. The app is also enjoyed use in scenes like language learning and dance training. The latest upgrade includes a range of performance enhancements based on user feedback:

* Select up to three loop positions. You can focus on the intro, hook, and guitar solo, to name a few possibilities, and drill down to those areas for repeat listening.

* mimiCopy now offers flexible audio routing settings that let you control which audio channels you listen to. Selectively listen to the right channel, mix both left and right channels while outputting just the right channel to headphones, and more. You can now listen to clips in a much easier manner.

* Folder playback. You can arrange multiple tracks in playlist format and replay them. This is ideal not only for learning a piece of music, but when studying a subject.

* Note-taking. Add a text memo to each track. Take down the chord or melody of a song on the spot.

The app has also been optimized for iOS7/8, iPhone 6, and iPhone 6 Plus, as well as designed to offer support for 64-bit CPUs. The app also features user registration.
