Original New Interactive Story App Troubled Waters Launches

People in search of an immersive new interactive story app that blends an emotionally gripping storyline with creative and addictive “what will happen next?” gameplay, can now head to the App Store or Google Play and download the new release Troubled Waters by 4 Deuces Gaming, LLC.

Original New Interactive Story App Troubled Waters Launches

Unlike most interactive story apps that are predictable, boring and forgettable, Troubled Waters is a brilliantly original offering that dials up the intrigue and drama right away. Here’s the back story: a teenager named Alex sneaks on an ocean voyage, and as a result of this illicit transgression is thrown overboard. Miraculously however, Alex doesn’t perish. Instead, a single possession: an old two-way radio that could stop working at any moment, allows Alex to call for help while clinging for life.

 

It’s the mission of each Troubled Waters player to help Alex survive by communicating through the radio, and selecting the right responses that guide to safety. In total, the castaway needs to make over 280 vital decisions. The right advice keeps Alex alive to face the next challenge, while the wrong advice could end in a watery grave. Other Troubled Waters special features include:

 

* The option for players to receive push notifications when Alex needs help and advice, so they can respond when it’s convenient
* Outstanding sound effects and music that greatly enhances the overall playing experience (with available mute option)
* The option for players to Tweet their progress directly from the app

 

Troubled Waters 3.0 is $1.99  and available through the App Store. There is also an Android version available on Google Play.

Fox 1.0 – New Royalty Software for FileMaker Pro 15 Platform

Today OFFICER solutions announced the release of Fox 1.0, a new addition to their software line of royalty applications for entertainment companies. Fox 1.0 easily transforms huge sales reports for content sold on the internet into detailed royalty statements for artists, musicians and other right holders.

 

The software plays nicely with any digitally sellable asset, like books, apps, stock photos, fonts, games and films and has been optimized for the use at independent record labels. Catalog data and sales can be easily imported for royalty processing. The software supports any currency (incoming & outgoing) and royalty statements can be issued as PDFs, CSV and Excel files in english or any other, user-definable language.

 

“The music industry has transformed tremendously in the past years. Streaming music over services like Apple Music, Spotify and Youtube has become the main driver for income and officially surpassed physical and download sales in 2016” says Rudolf Chelbea, founder and CEO of OFFICER solutions. “While consumers profit from great offers and affordable pricing models for their music and movie enjoyment, the companies behind the content are having trouble to keep pace with the growing amount of big data. Hundreds of thousands of sales lines with values around $0.003 or less have to be analyzed, identified, resulting royalties calculated and paid to the original artist. That’s a tough task without a suitable software.”

 

It is a not so well-known fact that 70% of the music world wide is released by smaller, independent record labels. Unfortunately, the growing amount of data does not scale proportionally with the income of these companies and consequently, they can not afford huge royalty applications that cost ten thousands of dollars. OFFICER solutions has developed Fox 1.0 to solve this dilemma by offering an affordable royalty software for smaller companies.

 

Fox 1.0 is a real, installable software application for Macintosh(R) and Windows(R) computers, based on the newest FileMaker(R) Pro 15 platform. It is available as a timely unrestricted license for a one-time fee or as a monthly subscription. A special, low priced startup package is available for newcomers to enable them with a professional accounting tool for their digital sales at an early stage. More and extensive information is available on the company website.

SSD Health Check for macOS Now Available

B-Eng today is proud to announce the release and immediate availability of SSD Health Check 1.0, the company’s new hard drive utility for Mac OS X. As the name implies, SSD Health check is able to alert the user when their solid state disk is in a critical state or reaches other critical limits. SSD Health Check reports data such as operating temperature, unexpected power losses and power cycles as well as the number of uncorrectable errors and wear level count or parameters such as erase fail count.

SSD_HC_screen

“A lot of people are not aware that an SSD fails over time as well, even if are mechanically more stable than a conventional hard disk,” According to Christian Schaffner, General Manager of B-Eng. “While a conventional hard disk may break due to mechanical impact and general wear of the mechanical components, a solid state disk has a limited life time due to the repeated write cycles. Power losses, high operating temperature and excessive writing/erasing for example are shortening the life span of an SSD even more. While SSD Health Check doesn’t increase the life span of a solid state disk, it may deliver critical information that allows the user to replace their SSD before it becomes unreliable or even dies.”

 

System Requirements:
* OS X 10.7 or later
* 64-bit processor
* 3.0 MB

 

SSD Health Check 1.0 is only $0.99 and available through the Mac App Store in the Utilities category.
