Rasterzone Entertainment Introduces Gallery Hero for iOS and Android

Rasterzone Entertainment, LLC today announced the release of Gallery Hero(TM) for iPhone, iPad, and Android phones and tablets. In the game, something has taken over the art gallery, and all the paintings have mysteriously disappeared from their frames. In their place is a series of puzzles that must be solved in order to recover the artwork. Gallery Hero features 60 puzzles, six paintings to rescue, and an eclectic soundtrack to play along to.

 

Gallery Hero is a tile-based puzzle game, where the goal of each puzzle is to clear the most tiles with the least number of moves. Tiles are cleared by matching colored sides. The player is given up to four tiles, which are used to make matches with tiles on the game board. The player is rewarded with bronze, silver, and gold stars depending on how well they do. Each of the six paintings can be recovered by earning bronze stars, but the game challenges the player to go further and collect all the gold stars to unlock a secret item.

 

The game features various challenges, such as timed challenges that test the player’s quick thinking, blackout challenges that test the player’s memory, and many more. As the game goes on, the puzzles increase in difficulty, and so the player must think more strategically about their next move in order to win. The game is intended for all ages, and has a high contrast option for players with color vision difficulties.

 

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
* Requires iOS 7.1 or later
* 59.4 MB

 

Pricing and Availability:

The app offers the ability to schedule, undo, and track emails, convert emails to notes, upload email attachments regardless of size, create beautiful signatures, and more.

 

MailButler features include:
* Snooze – Allows users to temporarily make an email disappear from their inbox
* Follow-Up – Get a follow-up reminder when there isn’t a response to a selected email
* Tracking – Get notified when a recipient has opened their email
* Scheduling – Schedule emails to be sent at a particular date and time
* Cloud Upload – Send attachments of any size, attachment sizes are not restrained by mail provider limits
* Signatures – Create beautiful email signatures by selecting from MailButler’s various templates
* Undo Send – MailButler keeps an email in the outbox for a user specified safety period of time before sending
* Attachment Reminder – Intelligently reminds you about possibly omitted email attachments
* Notes – MailButler allows users to easily convert emails from Apple’s Mail application into convenient notes
* Emoji, and much more

 

The developers at Feingeist Software promise that more new features are planned and will be added to MailButler in future.

 

Pricing and Availability:
MailButler (v6407) is free, and is available worldwide exclusively through the Feingeist Software website. Two service plans are offered. The Free Plan allows access to all features for one user, 30+ Actions per month, and 1 email avatar. The Professional Plan is $8.95 (USD) per month, allowing access to all features for one user, unlimited Actions, and 3 email avatars.

TunesKit Released DRM Removal Solution to Remove DRM from Apple Music

Based on a growing customers’ request to remove DRM encryption from Apple Music audio tracks, TunesKit Studio recently introduced a new member to its DRM removal family, that is, TunesKit Apple Music Converter. Now with this perfect DRM removal solution for Apple Music, users who subscribed Apple Music service could take full control over their Apple Music songs by completely cracking DRM lock from the offline Apple Music M4P tracks so that they can enjoy those music streams on non-Apple media players and devices as they wish.

 

As a top-leading music-streaming service in the world, Apple Music has already exceeded 15 million subscribers so far and the number is fast growing every single day. New subscribers will get a 3-month free trial and pay $9.9 subscription fee per month when the free trial ends. During the subscription, users are allowed to download and stream any music track from Apple Music to their iOS and Apple-related devices. However, due to the DRM copyright protection, they are prohibited from streaming the downloaded Apple Music songs to non-Apple media players for playback. In this case, TunesKit DRM Apple Music Converter is launched to help Apple Music subscribers get away from DRM restriction by unlocking DRM protection from the offline M4P songs they download with Apple Music so that they can keep those audio tracks forever even if they unsubscribe Apple Music. Besides, this smart Apple Music DRM removal tool also works with the DRM-encrypted M4P songs downloaded from iTunes store a few
years ago.

 

Thanks to the innovative DRM decryption core, TunesKit Apple Music Converter is able to convert the DRM-ed Apple Music files from M4P to DRM-free MP3, AAC, WAV, M4A, M4B and FLAC while preserving the original ID tags and metadata, including track number, title, artist, album, genre and duration, etc. By striping DRM from Apple Music songs with this powerful DRM cracker, Apple Music users can freely transfer the unprotected Apple Music songs, albums and playlists to any device to enjoy, including iPod, Samsung, LG, Motorola, Sony, Lenovo, Zune, and other MP3 players.

 

Like other DRM removal programs within TunesKit product line, TunesKit DRM Apple Music Converter is well-designed with a clean interface and neat buttons. Every one could handle the DRM removal process easily with a few clicks only. And unlike some traditional audio encoders, TunesKit Apple Music Converter doesn’t need any extra hardware or virtual CD driver. “Due to the advanced encoding accelerator, TunesKit Apple Music Converter boasts a super fast conversion speed at 30X, much faster than any other similar Apple Music crackers in the market,” said Andres, the marketing director of TunesKit.

ScalePlay for iPad Released

RoGame Software today is very happy to announce the release of ScalePlay 1.0.0, a generative music app developed exclusively for iPad. ScalePlay is capable of producing the most intricate patterns and sequences. It can be used in music production and is also a fantastic tool for music education. It includes scale references for hundreds of scales, nine virtual instruments and 128 instrument sounds. Its unique set of features allows the musician to visualize scale relations and to play along with generated patterns.

 

There are hardly any topics more central to musicianship than that of scales. There is the construction of scales, their relationship to chords and then there are the exercises. In classical as well as in modern music scales are practiced on a daily basis to improve reading skills, form that finger memory, train those ears of course and most of us have at least a basic understanding of their purpose. Some classical composer like Kreutzer or Czerny are better known today for their volumes of scale-based etudes than for the rest of their work and practically everyone has at least heard a rendition of Do, Re, Mi.

 

Modern musicians often practice playing scales according to organizing principles like thirds. What is meant by that is to play a scale tone, then its third, then the second scale tone, the third on top of that one and so forth. The exercise would result in the scale tones 1, 3, 2, 4, 3, 5, 4, 6, etc. This is very similar to what classical etudes look like, only that improvisers don’t read off the page, but construct these phrases on the go. And of course there are many variations. Not an easy feat at first, because before even getting started, one has to know the base scale. Playing patterns through different keys and scale types finally is a demanding task even for the advanced musician.

 

ScalePlay constructs patterns like these and much more complicated ones by using two simple grids. While grids have been around in music apps for years, those are mainly based on half-tone steps and usually include all available notes of the spectrum. That leaves one difficulty on the table, namely that of correctly identifying the notes of a scale. These grids also don’t easily allow for patterning as in our scale in thirds. So a different solution is called for and ScalePlay provides just that and so much more.

 

In the application songs are used as metaphor to organize different scale types into a harmonic context. They are constructed with chords which in turn determine what scale types are available at a given time. During playback the app then cycles through these virtual chords or as with TouchPlay allows to call them up at will. This architecture is very helpful for superimposing ScalePlay patterns over existing pieces and even practicing improvising over changes.

 

With its innovative approach ScalePlay serves two distinct purposes. The first one has to do with learning. To practice a patterned version of a scale rather than the regular up and down one has to know the scale first and then construct the pattern or phrase on their instruments. With ScalePlay the construction is easily done. The app can then show the pattern progression on several built-in instruments and even provides a music notation reference. One can slow things down to need and play along. Another feature of immense interest for the practicing musician is called pattern lock. When engaged it keeps all patterns in the same general vicinity. So instead of raising all scale tones when a base chord moves from C to G for example patterns stay in place. This allows guitarists to practice scale patterns over changes while remaining in the same position.

 

The second purpose of is course music production or more specifically music production on iOS. iPads have become a mainstay in music production and ScalePlay is a fabulous generative music app. That is because of the magic that happens when these self-repeating scale structures are put in motion. Fantastic music occurs. And since ScalePlay supports virtual MIDI as well as Audiobus it can be recorded into any iOS based DAW. ScalePlay also introduces TouchPlay, an innovative environment for advanced looping. With TouchPlay scale structures can be looped endlessly and out of order. The TouchPlay environment is superimposed over ScalePlay’s main interface and allows live switching between different scale types with one finger tap in continuous or full pattern mode. Of course ScalePlay supports multi-app multitasking as well as split-view and split-screen to make this feature even more useful.

 

Quick Features:
* Intuitive interface
* 211 different scales
* Adjustable grid sizes
* Virtual MIDI
* Audiobus compatible
* Advanced Looping with TouchPlay
* Full general MIDI instrument library
* All common clefs
* Adjustable tuning (string instruments)
* Support for left-handed players
* Split-view, split-screen and multitasking support
* Extensive In-app and online documentation

 

Instruments:
* Banjo, Bass, Cello, Double Bass, Guitar, Mandolin, Piano, Viola and Violin

 

Scales are one of the principal building blocks in music and many hours of a musician’s life are spent practicing them. ScalePlay offers a fresh take on working with scales and allows experimentation in a way that would be quite difficult on an instrument. As a pattern generator ScalePlay opens up a world of new possibilities that far exceed the typical step sequencer with its drill down approach and harmonic context.

Language Support:
ScalePlay is localized into Chinese, Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish.

 

Device Requirements:
* Compatible with iPad
* Requires iOS 9.3 or later
* 15.1 MB

 

Pricing and Availability:
ScalePlay 1.0.0 costs $6.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and is available worldwide exclusively through the iPhone App Store in the music and education categories. Educational discounts are available.
