Important info about 64-bit mode:
14 is the first version of FileMaker Pro that leverages the 64-bit architecture. However, if plug-ins are used they must match the architecture of the FileMaker Pro application. It will take some time before all plug-ins are updated to support 64-bit architecture natively. So, if a user needs to use 32-bit plug-ins with FileMaker Pro 14 it is necessary to run FileMaker Pro in the 32-bit mode as well. On a Mac it is as easy as opening the Get Info dialog for the application and enable the option to run the app in 32-bit mode. On Windows the appropriate architecture needs to be chosen before installing the FileMaker Pro 14.

This creative writing technique makes you focus on a random word in a subliminal way. A 3D word appears to float around to help you brainstorm.

Myths & Legends:
According to your location (theme), this feature will display mythical stories about that place.

Timer:
Use this feature to be more productive by establishing writing goals and setting up timers.

Inspiration Dice:

Exhilarating Activities in Haypi Kingdom: The Return of the King 1.0.9

Shanghai, China – Years ago, the developer Haypi Co., Ltd became famous with the iOS game Haypi Kingdom, which became a super hit, and their signature game. Haypi continues to be associated with the war strategic war game Haypi Kingdom, in addition to the new titles released by the creative developer. The fan base of the Haypi games keeps on growing quickly, and the developer is becoming more well-known. Of course, the numerous fans of Haypi Kingdom, has been extremely glad with the release of Haypi Kingdom: The Return of the King – the amusing brother version of Haypi’s initial signature game. The latest great news is that a new patch version 1.0.9 of the challenging MMO has recently become available on the AppStore.

In fact, Haypi Kingdom: The Return of the King 1.0.9 has introduced great improvements. Except for the PVP mode, there is a really thrilling PVE mode, including regular levels with growing difficulty, as well as Trial Towers. In order to provide better balance in the gameplay, the developer made modifications to the difficulty level, making advanced levels in the Trial Tower much bigger challenge for the strong players. In addition to that, the lords can enjoy significantly increased Healing rates in both the Trial Towers and the PVE levels. Now, there are also great rewards for passing the top final level of each Trial Tower – players can get better drops from passing the 10th checkpoint of each tower. For a more harmonized gameplay, VIP’s Healing Rate add-on during PVE level challenges has been decreased, so the fairness of the game is ensured.

With the new 1.0.9 update, players of The Return of the King can be sure to receive a random legendary hero, if they have already refreshed their Tavern with epic cards for a certain amount of times. This new Epic Hero Card Mechanism is great, bringing joy and providing better opportunity for the players to earn more power. Besides, players can now see a whole Tome of Heroes in the new patch version 1.0.9 of Haypi Kingdom: The Return of the King. The Tome provides full information about the Heroes and their details. This way, players could choose the heroes they want to get, and concentrate their efforts in getting them for their army!

The Haypi players love the in-game activities. Lately the On Guard activity has been so hot in The Return of the King. In the new 1.0.9 version, the activity has been modified to provide a more exhilarating challenge. The troop force of sorcerers, catapults and royal knights in activity has been decreased, along with the Soulstone output upon the mentioned troops’ sacrifice, which has also been decreased. So now there is a better balance in the gameplay. For further harmonization, the respective troop’s MDEF has been increased. Now players are tuned in for news of the reopening of the World Boss.

This exciting activity allowed players to try the power of their armies against one of the Powerful World Bosses. In the new game version 1.0.9, this activity has been temporarily disabled for further optimizations, so players are excited about its return. The rule of Plunder activities has been modified to include other players’ resource buildings into the count of the activity. Activities in this game are amusing and fun, and the developer is always making their best to make all activities both enjoyable and fair for the players. In addition, Royal spots have been added to Activities in the Dailies, where players regularly get their rewards. So now players can acquire Soulstones by occupying those spots on the world map. Royal spots will be available after GMT 00:30 AM every day and soulstones accumulate over time.

Interaction with World Map is great fun in Haypi Kingdom: The Return of the King. From now on, when a lord takes over another player’s city (manors, forts and castles…), all inner city buildings and outer city resource buildings’ level will be decreased by 1. When the ownership of an occupied city (manors, forts and castles…) gets changed, the specific spot will be put into a 24-hour shield. In the new 1.0.9 update of The Return of the King, there is a better balance of power and resources from the World Map.

Now the gameplay is further improved through more efficient updating and correcting of the level of loyalty of cities (manors, forts, and castles…). So for example, the city loyalty won’t get stuck at 25, but it will change very adequately. Furthermore, for better protection of the cities, when players are being attacked or plundered, now they can quick-access the target city (or the city where the target oasis is attached to) by tapping on the horse icon. So the game is more harmonized through these optimizations.

In the new 1.0.9 update of The Return of the King, the system will provide better care not to max the capacity of the Barracks, especially when it comes to returning troops from lost branch cities. When such a city is lost, the remaining troops will no longer be sent back to the main city after its Barracks’ max capacity is reached. That will prevent the main city troop count from exceeding the Barracks’ maximum capacity, when the main city’s troops have maxed. In addition, the Market functions much better in the new patch version 1.0.9, and the counting of the available transport teams is quite precise.

Haypi Co., Ltd. Provides an exhilarating gameplay in all Haypi games. Usually the developer releases regular updates with optimized contents of their amusing games. Haypi Kingdom: The Return of the King has just been updated with version 1.0.9, so now players enjoy thrilling battles and very balanced gameplay. The love of the fans is what inspires Haypi. Players are the Muse admired by Haypi.

* iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch

Cody Simpon Fans to Vote on His Next Song Name Via Choosr iPhone App

Darlinghurst, Australia – Australian/American teen idol Cody Simpson and British boy band The Wanted have announced today that they will use the iPhone app “Choosr” to work out the best names for their upcoming songs. This is a joint announcement with the app’s developer, Lexington Creative.

The artists were approached by the developer late last year with idea of using the new crowdsourcing app to help choose their next song titles. Both Cody and The Wanted tested the app ahead of its release and were impressed with its functionality, ease of use and clean design, and they accepted Lexington Creative’s offer.

The app Choosr allows users to upload questions and also vote on other people’s questions. The app is described as a free, instant crowdsourcing app. It will provide the artists with a quick and easy way to reach their target market as well as gain extra visibility with potential fans. The move is a novel way to connect with a generation that uses their smartphones for almost everything.

Under the agreements with Lexington Creative, Cody’s four potential song names and The Wanted’s three potential titles will not be revealed other than through the app. The titles are due to be released for voting on Wednesday, May 13, 2015.

Choosr is the instant crowd sourcing app, allowing users to get quick advice from a targeted crowd on virtually any topic.

Choosr lets anyone easily and accurately crowd source opinions on virtually anything. Users can both ask questions and vote on others’ at the same time. When posting a question, users give up to 4 options, each one consisting of an image and/or statement/caption. To get a target audience’s opinion, they can also filter the age range and sex of the voters.

Issues and decisions that the app could be used to get opinions on include:
* Fashion (“What should I wear?”)
* Fun hypotheticals (“Would you rather…?”)
* Interest in a new idea (“would you use an app that locates florists?”)
* Business decisions (“Which logo looks best?” or “which product packaging looks best”?
* Purchases (“Which color suits our walls best?” or “Which puppy should I buy?”)
* Teen interests (“Who’s hotter – 1D or Justin Bieber?”)
* Relationships (“What should I get my wife for anniversary?” or “what should I do about a cheating partner?”)

With its simple layout, featuring an Instagram-style tab bar, the app is easy and intuitive for new users.

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

Pricing and Availability:
Choosr 1.0 is Free and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Entertainment category.
