easy! A deluxe brainteaser! 0.9.1 – Hectic Logic Quiz Challenges Players

Mannheim, Germany – Indie developer, Jan Essig today is proud to announce the release and immediate availability of easy! – a deluxe brainteaser 0.9.1, a fast-paced logic game developed exclusively for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices. easy! throws rapid-fire logic questions at players, requiring them to answer within three seconds by swiping their finger right for true, or left for false. The game’s fast pace requires players to answer quickly, while also pushing them to exercise the logic center of their brain.

While the concept of the game is easy to learn, it’s tough to master. The questions come fast and furious. Are tomatoes blue? Does sand taste sweet? Can a finicky eater be eaten? Math problems and image-based questions add to the difficulty, and the fun. Answer quickly, or the game is over! For every question that is answered correctly, players receive one point. Get five correct answers in a row, and the theme of questioning changes. If an answer comes too slowly or if the answer is the wrong one, then it’s Game Over.

“I’ve always had a soft spot for logic puzzles, as well as fast-moving quiz games,” says developer Jan Essig. “With easy! I’ve been able to merge both types of games into one fast-moving, hectic brainteaser. When I came up with the idea of the player quickly swiping a finger left or right to answer the questions, while also increasing the pressure on them by requiring them to look out for shifts in the type of questions, I knew that players would find that it was an entertaining challenge! I have always relished developing educational apps, while also making them fun to play. easy! is the best of both worlds!”

Features:
* 4 questions and statements
* 30 false answers and 30 correct answers respectively
* 3 seconds to think
* Swipe right for true, swipe left for false
* Merciless rating system
* Intuitive controls
* A Purple Monster
* Entertaining sound effects
* Colorful graphics
* Challenge friends and family
* Game Center Leaderboard
* Entertaining and challenging fun for all ages

Players will find that the trickiest feature of easy! is the way it seamlessly shifts gears with every five correct answers. Players may go from answering whether a set of math questions are correct, (or incorrect, watch out for that!), and then move right into a batch of true or false “Does this taste sweet?” questions. Just when a contestant becomes comfortable with a set way of logically approaching a certain group of questions, the game switches up on them, and it goes off on a completely different line of questioning.

easy! also includes Game Center integration, so players can easily see how well their score compares those of their family, friends, or even complete strangers from around the world! Players can also easily challenge others to join in the fun, so now they can compete to prove once and for all who thinks fastest in a pinch. Players who show long-term dedication to the game could leap to the top of the Leaderboard.

easy! is fun for the whole family. Kid-friendly questions and answers make the game safe to play for any age group. The game’s Purple Monster mascot, colorful graphics, and humorous sound effects make it a great game for younger players, while the tricky, continually shifting lines of questioning in the game make it an entertaining challenge for teenage and adult players.

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch
* Optimized for iPhone 5, iPhone 6, and iPhone 6 Plus
* Requires iOS 7.0 or later
* 25.2 MB

Pricing and Availability:
easy! A deluxe brainteaser! 0.9.1 is $0.99 (USD) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Games category. Review copies are available upon request.

Arctic Defences is an Epic Battle Across Islands, Mountains and Tundra

Cupertino, California – When most people think of the Arctic, they imagine vast fields of snow and ice, frigid temperatures, beautiful panoramic landscapes, and perhaps the occasional walrus or polar bear sighting. However, app developer Ulrik Motzfeldt had something rather different in mind when he created the new no-cost iOS app Arctic Defences – because instead of walruses and polar bears, his unique vision of the Arctic is full of zombies and battles.

Described by an impressed reviewer as “the best Arctic tower defense game ever!”, Arctic Defences takes gamers onto a frozen polar zone that is being overrun by over 20 different types of zombie enemies – including infantry and aviation – who are surprisingly resilient, extremely angry, and determined to win at all costs. To stop the invaders and protect freedom and liberty, gamers must mobilize units comprised of gunners and snipers and attack with rockets and six different guns. Gamers can also update their units in the laboratory or upgrade weapons in order to win more battles.

And speaking of winning battles: the app provides gamers with an analysis of each enemy – including data on health, speed, weaknesses, etc. – that can be used to gain an advantage on the battlefield. Sometimes, the app even provides hints on the weapon that must be used to defeat an enemy. Furthermore, Arctic Defences gets tougher and tougher as gamers make their way through over 20 levels, and engage in epic battles across islands, mountains and tundra. This is a welcome change from most other defence-style apps, which quickly become predictable and boring.

Other Arctic Defences special features include:
* Crisp, colorful graphics
* An outstanding soundtrack and sound effects
* An intuitive interface that enhances overall gameplay

“To succeed and survive in Arctic Defences, gamers will need to rely on much more than luck,” commented Ulrik Motzfeldt. “The over 20 kinds of angry enemies they’ll face are smart, organized and surprisingly crafty. Defeating them requires the right combination of strategy, tactics, planning, and timing!”

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
* Requires iOS 6.1 or later
* 70.5 MB

Pricing and Availability:
Arctic Defences 1.1, the new no-cost iOS app that is an epic multi-level battle vs. zombie invaders across islands, mountains and tundra, is available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Games category.

Psycho Escape Features Multiple Puzzles – and a Relentless Killer

Cupertino, California – There are two distinct types of horror-genre “escape” type games in the app world. The first type – which, sadly, includes overwhelming majority of them – is predictable, uncreative, boring, and sometimes even laughable. However, the other type is spellbinding, original, challenging and, most important of all: completely thrilling. Fortunately, the new no-cost release from Trapped entitled Psycho Escape is definitely in the latter category.

Available now for iPhone/iPad and coming very soon for Android devices, The Psycho Escape back story is the stuff of nightmares – which means that it’s wonderfully terrifying and vividly unforgettable. It goes like this: A psycho killer is on the prowl. He knows where his victim is, and follows every action. He’s also relentless, and won’t stop until he completes his murderous mission. Worse, he seems to get some kind of sadistic pleasure from phoning his victims and telling them that there’s no escape.

That phone call is where Psycho Escape beings. Users realize that they can’t close the doors, lock the windows, or even call the police – because there may not be enough time for help to arrive. As such, they must concentrate on staying calm, so they can skillfully solve a variety of mind-bending mysteries and puzzles, and make their way through various levels. If successful, users will eventually wake up from this nightmare in a triumphant display of sheer courage and survivability. If they fail…well, let’s just say that the game doesn’t promise them much of a happy ending (although they can start over if they wish).

Key Psycho Escape features that will have users playing long, long into the night include:
* Crisp, high definition graphics and scenes designed with meticulous detail – for example, the drab fluorescent lighting in the morgue is flawless
* Multiple items to collect and use along the way
* Chilling music to accompany users as they scramble to survive
* A variety of customizable user settings (e.g. volume, pause, gamepad, etc.)

“As reported by LiveScience.com, the reason people love horror movies so much because they want to be emotionally affected and experience powerful suspense,” commented a spokesperson from Trapped. “However, most apps that try and capture this essence fall short, and end up putting users to sleep! And that’s why we spent so much time creating Psycho Escape. It’s a truly thrilling, spellbinding experience that will keep users on the edge of their seats, and have them wondering: will I escape and survive…or will I be the next victim?”

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
* Optimized for iPhone 5, iPhone 6/6 Plus
* Requires iOS 6.0 or later
* 77.1 MB

Pricing and Availability:
Psycho Escape 1.0, the thrilling new no-cost escape game that features multiple puzzles, mysteries, levels – and a relentless killer, is available worldwide through the App Store in the Games category. There is also an Android version available on Google Play.

DriveDx 1.4 for Mac – Save yourself from Data Loss and Downtime

San Francisco, United States – BinaryFruit today is pleased to announce the release and immediate availability of DriveDx 1.4.0, its latest solution for SSD and HDD health diagnostics and monitoring. As Mac OS X does not have a comprehensive drive health indicator, DriveDx fills a critical role in measuring the overall health of both SSD and HDD drives. Because DriveDx tracks more indicators of impending failure than any other product on the market, users will get advanced warning before their drives fail. This will allow them to take action to avert the failure, and save themselves from resulting data loss and downtime.

Unlike many other drive health diagnostics utilities that simply check built-in S.M.A.R.T. status, DriveDx performs overall drive health diagnostics using drive health indicators (like SSD wear out / endurance, reallocated bad sectors, offline bad sectors, pending sectors, I/O errors, and more) that most closely correlate with drive failures according to the statistics reported in the latest researches focused on identifying drive failure trends. This gives a user a comprehensive picture of a current drive health status and enables foreseeing potential problems with drive failure and loss of sensitive data. Moreover, DriveDx shows this information on a user-friendly Mac-style interface in an easy-to-understand format.

“Here’s a DriveDx triumph. DriveDx showed my just out of AppleCare iMac with two pre-fail conditions for the hard drive. Made appointment and took it to Genius Bar yesterday. Tech looked at DriveDx and was very impressed. Even though out of warranty – they replaced the drive without question,” said Michael Sidoric, CapMac User Group Treasurer, ex-Vice President of CapMac.org. “God knows how many dollars and troubles DriveDx saved me since I had several vital FinalCut projects on it.”

DriveDx is a combined drive health analysis and forecasting tool. It monitors and analyzes changes to S.M.A.R.T. attributes in order to continuously evaluate drive health status and predict drive failures. In addition to “Failed” and “OK” drive statutes DriveDx supports “Warning” and “Failing” statuses indicating that a drive is in a pre-failure status and backup of sensitive data is highly recommended.

DriveDx performs both SSD and HDD health diagnostics. Moreover, it uses a separate set of indicators for SSD and HDD to monitor drive health status. This is particularly important as SSD works different from HDD, and requires a different algorithm to check its health status. Also, SDDs typically are more dependent on firmware than HDDs, and DriveDx has been programmed to support many versions of firmware (please see our website for a complete list of supported firmware).

DriveDx allows configuring the delivery of customized drive status and free space reports by e-mail and therefore does not require user presence to inform about drive status changes. In addition DriveDx can launch built-in drive diagnostics self-tests. Drive self-tests will help to quickly identify if the drive is faulty.

DriveDx is the first utility of its kind to have a real user-friendly Mac-style interface. It is organized in a way that allows a user to view and understand drive status and its performance at a glance. User can switch between different view modes to drill up or down data related to drive health, including S.M.A.R.T. indicators and attributes, drive statistics and errors.

What’s New in DriveDx 1.4.0:
* Support of Yosemite (OS X 10.10) dark UI mode
* More “flat” UI on Yosemite (OS X 10.10)
* User now can turn-off (suppress) S.M.A.R.T. attribute (health indicator) raw value alert
* Improved support of recent SSD and HDD models
* Improved drive health diagnostic algorithms and heuristics
* Improved health indicator (SMART attribute) descriptions and hints
* Health indicator raw value tooltip with extended info: last modified time, value delta, status, recommendations, etc
* “Last modified” field for each health indicator in reports
* Many stability improvements
* Many cosmetic tweaks and fixes

DriveDx feature highlights:
* Support of modern SSDs and HDDs
* SSD lifetime left indicator
* Different routines for SSD and HDD health evaluation
* Real-time SSD & HDD health status monitoring
* User friendly and intuitive UI

Mellel for iPad: the advanced word-processor gets an iPad debut

Tel Aviv, Israel – Mellel for iPad, brings the power and sophistication to word-processing on the iPad. Developed by RedleX, Mellel for iPad introduces several innovative features, and the power and reliability that made its sibling, the acclaimed Mellel for Mac, the word-processor of choice for long document writing on the Mac. Mellel for iPad is now available at the App store.

Mellel for iPad fills a distinct void. There are numerous writing applications for iPad – but none fits the specific requirements of iPad users who wish to enjoy a writing tool that can handle and manage long and complex documents. Mellel for iPad offers advanced features such as Auto-titles, Outline, Paragraph, Character, Page and Section styles, Tables, Track-changes, Comments and Statistics, and in addition offers complete compatibility with the advanced word-processor Mellel for Mac. That means elements such as citations, cross-reference, find and replace, multi-lingual features, and a host of other features do not ‘get lost’ when moving between iPad and the Mac.

Mellel for iPad introduces several features unique features. Its Outline enables users to navigate a long document with ease, hoping from one heading or caption to the other. To makes navigation even easier, one can zoom out to a 2 or 4Up view, making things easy skipping between various parts of a document.

One of the tasks regularly performed by iPad users is tweaking, commenting and fixing existing documents, created elsewhere or by others. Mellel for iPad offers users the ability to track changes (i.e., enter changes which are provisory until accepted) and comments. Users can also highlight text with Markers.

Styles are the bane of word processing. They rarely work as expected, and when they do, they are rarely consistent. Mellel for the Mac have always emphasised consistency, neatly separating the paragraph and character styles. As a result, styles in Mellel do not muddle the results but help keep them consistent. Mellel for iPad carries on this tradition, supporting styles from its Mac sibling and making it easy to use and apply styles in a document.

Another feature in Mellel is support for special keyboards, allowing access to some handy Math and Numbers, Signs and Symbols, Accents, and Polytonic Greek characters, and even Hebrew points and trope marks, sorely missed with word-processors on iPad until now.

In addition to those, Mellel for iPad offers supports for Lists, smart word count (you can enjoy statistics for just about every element, from images to hyperlinks, paragraphs or lines), notes (footnotes, endnotes, and author notes, and so on), lists, paragraph and character styling, tables, break marks, and so on.

To wrap things up, Mellel for iPad fully supports the display of every feature from Mellel for the Mac. For example, citations, cross-references and custom-tailored headings created on the Mac will display correctly on iPad and will be returned, unharmed, after editing. Documents can be exported via eMail and cloud apps (e.g., DropBox or Box). Documents can also be moved between places (folders) on the iPad, so they’re available from any other machine via iCloud.

Device Requirements:
* Compatible with iPad
* Requires iOS 8.1 or later
* 7.3 MB

Pricing and Availability:
Mellel for iPad 3.4 is $19.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide through the App Store in the Productivity category.
