PicSay 5.5: Fantastic New Typography Tools for iOS

A picture may be worth a thousand words, but that may not be enough to tell the whole story or express the motion behind a photograph. That’s why the mobile generation is flocking to PicSay (the former name Text on Pictures), the free mobile app for iOS devices that enhances photos with creative filters, fonts, stickers and other special effects.


Created by G-Power, the developer of popular photo enhancement tools like Piczoo and Mixoo, PicSay puts high-powered graphic effects as close as an iPhone or iPad screen and as easy to use as a simple finger swipe. Users can add personal quotes and photo captions, create posters advertising graphics, produce posts for their favorite social media platform and turn their best work into iPhone wallpaper.


PicSay comes with an extensive library of more than 100 fonts and text art and a toolbox that lets users adjust sizes, colors, positioning and alignment. A set of basic filters will adjust lighting, textures and add effects such as blurring. Photos can also be decorated with stickers to celebrate a birthday or other event.


An extensive update to PicSay was launched this week at the iTunes App Store. The update includes support for advanced editing techniques, such as warped text and 3D plus more new emoji and filter effects. Users can adjust the position, spacing, color and alignment of fonts and text art to create a perfect design. In addition, users can now use an eyedropper tool to create a custom color for text or stickers. And the app contains a collection of typographic designs that makes it extremely easy to create eye-catching pictures and posters.


PicSay 5.5 is Free (with in-app purchases) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Photo & Video category. In addition to the library of fonts, stickers and filters that come with the app, users can purchase packs of high-end effects such as neon stickers and punk-themed filters.

Money 5.1 Brings Requested Features

After just a bit over a month after release, Jumsoft‘s Money 5 for macOS and iOS gets a first feature release, which bumps the version number to 5.1 and brings advanced data encryption and security, with user interface improvements that enable more detailed insights into finance.


Money 5, released this March, was a highly anticipated release after Jumsoft’s previous Money 4. The new release was completely rebuilt in 64-bits, brought a gorgeous new user interface, streamlined across Mac and iOS versions of the app, and adopted the latest available features from Apple hardware and software to future-proof the app for generations of devices to come.


The 5.1 update is the first feature release for the new Money and is primarily based on customer requests. It adds two notable features: data encryption and security, and running balance, as well as technical and design improvements based on early customer feedback. The data security feature allows locking data with a password, which in turn encrypts it using advanced 256-bit AES encryption. It ensures that data is safely locked and encrypted on the device, on iCloud, and in transit. To make data unlocking quicker on the go, Money can be unlocked with Touch ID on supported iOS devices! The running balance is another widely-requested improvement, which adds an extra layer of detail to keep a close eye on the state of all accounts after each added transaction. These additions aside, 5.1 is Money’s largest update so far, bringing improvements to data synchronization, investment tracking, as well as overall improvements to the app’s reliability.


“Money 5.1 update marks the first step of our commitment to make Money 5 the best available finance tracker in the market for years to come. The new version of Money was eagerly anticipated by our amazing community of users, and we got tons of emails from users celebrating the new release and generously sharing their feedback on how they thought Money could evolve further,” said Algirdas Unguvaitis, CEO of Jumsoft. “We are very lucky to have such loyal users, who generously share their thoughts with us, and we listened to them all. This release is only the first stop on the exciting road we have planned ahead for Money!”


Money 5.1 is $49.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide through the Mac App Store in the Finance category. Money 5.1 is also available on the iOS App Store.

Bumble Bom Bee is the Future of Match Gaming on iOS

Conchware today has announced the release of Bumble Bom Bee 0.0.515, a maintenance update to their popular game title for iOS and Android devices.

Bumble Bom Bee, the world’s first physics-based tile matching game is one of the most challenging and intuitively fascinating puzzle games to be introduced in recent times.


By taking the basic gaming principle of swipe-to-match we have moved into a new realm of possibility in which mechanics that consistently generate results in the inherently unpredictable world of physics and mathematics are now a reality.


Through extensive study of geometry and bees we have discovered a way to spontaneously generate order out of the inherently random movements of multiple objects, allowing for gameplay experiences which have never been possible or seen before now. The dynamics and flexibility of such a system allows for a player to do anything they please and although you might not know where the tiles are going, when they stop you are always presented with a perfect honeycomb.


In addition to everything mentioned so far Bumble Bom Bee also makes extensive use of multiple game modes, obstacles and objective that combine into many different combinations of levels and of a specially designed A.I. created to help the player throughout their game play experience. This A.I. does everything from show the player how different obstacles work in the tutorials, teaching beginner players how to play the game without the limitations of language barriers, to offering valuable hints and suggestions when the player cannot find a move and automatically shuffling the board if no moves are possible. As a result Bumble Bom Bee is a game that, while instantly familiar to millions, is unlike any other game on earth.


Bumble Bom Bee 0.0.515 is currently available for Free at iTunes App Store in the Games category. Bumble Bom Bee is also available in Android for Free at Google Play Store in the Casual category.

The truth is, they can be recovered using any one of a number of utilities for macOS or Windows. Those files aren’t really gone until that storage space is overwritten using secure deletion algorithms,” says Chris Bohn, CEO of ProtectStar. “However, in just three simple steps, Data Shredder for iOS can securely erase the free space using patented security standards, making it impossible to recover any deleted data.”


Data Shredder for iOS 2017 is available in two versions, the Professional Edition offers 11 different data shredding methods, completely wiping all free space and overwriting the storage area, to completely shred all of the stored data.

DEVONthink To Go 2.1.3 Release Brings New Declutterer and Automation

DEVONtechnologies today is proud to announce the release of DEVONthink To Go 2.1.3, an update to the company’s iOS companion to DEVONthink for Mac, with enhancements and bug fixes. Take your databases with you and organize your documents on the go. Synchronize your data directly on the local network, via Dropbox, or any WebDAV server. Strong encryption keeps your private data private.

Version 2.1.3 uses DEVONtechnologies’ new decluttering service for clipping web pages and adds new settings for PDFs. It also improves automation with new URL commands and x-callback-url support. A new smart group lists all items that have comments, and email attachments are now shown separately so that they can be viewed and shared. The Apple Pencil support for PDF annotations has been improved too. The update is free and recommended for all users.


Following its Mac counterpart, DEVONthink To Go 2.1.3 replaces the use of Instapaper for decluttering clipped web pages and articles. Our own new web service makes the app independent from third-party services and is prepared for future improvements.


Viewing PDFs in DEVONthink To Go becomes more comfortable with two new settings. Continuous scrolling allows to maintain the zoom level while browsing PDFs. And users of smaller iPads can let the app display only one page at a time instead of two next to each other in landscape orientation. Working with email messages has been improved, too, with attachments listed separately so that users can view and share them.


Other usability enhancements in version 2.1.3 include better Apple Pencil support for annotating PDFs and improved searching while typing. A new smart group lists items with comments. In addition, it’s now possible to copy item links for databases. This makes it possible to, e.g., open them from OmniFocus tasks or Calendar entries. Switching away from DEVONthink To Go saves documents without ending editing mode. This makes it more comfortable to look something up in another app while working on a document.


Automation on iOS:
It’s still treated as an orphan on iOS: automation. Workflow, the app that was just acquired by Apple, and custom URL schemes are currently your best bet for automating repetitive tasks across apps. DEVONthink To Go 2.1.3 greatly enhances the existing set of URL commands. New calls allow users to add documents, retrieve item data, and search their databases. Using the x-callback-url scheme all commands also return data to the calling app if needed.


The update also improves the responsiveness and reliability, and fixes bugs and glitches. It’s free for existing users and highly recommended.


DEVONthink To Go 2.1.3 is $14.99 and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Productivity category. Some features require a one-time in-app purchase.
