Creaceed Debuts Inko Collaborative Whiteboard for iPad & Apple TV

 

Inko’s peer-to-peer connectivity makes infrastructure network or internet access superfluous, offering a one-tap setup process that permits easy deployment in most situations. Inko also offers a remarkable drawing experience through its extensive support for Apple Pencil, as well as a beautiful pixel-free visualization with vibrant colors on wide color displays (P3). Moreover, the free Apple TV companion app enables live mirroring of contents on large screens, up to 4K, and also offers innovative interaction with the remote as a laser pointer.

 

Ideal for Enterprise and Education:
Thanks to its nomadic connectivity capability and its other productivity features, Inko is particularly suited to education and enterprise environments. Moreover, the support for standard TV sets makes it an affordable alternative to expensive and less flexible interactive whiteboards. Standard equipment enables rich usage scenarios.

 

“We made Inko to enable creative drawing-based interactions in most situations, scaling from drawing game at home to digital classes at school and the entreprise,” says Raphael Sebbe, Creaceed’s Founder. “We believe Inko can be an advantageous alternative to dedicated interactive whiteboard screens, being a lot more affordable, more easily deployed, and running on off-the-shelf equipment (iPad, TV sets) that can serve numerous other purposes.”

 

Feature Highlights:
* Real-time drawing: highly responsive, “appears-as-it-happens” multi-user drawing with no lag
* Dynamic trails: participants’ labels on drawing trails that show who is currently drawing
* Seamless connectivity with up to 12 devices when using a Wi-Fi access point, or 8 devices without Wi-Fi access point
* Extensive Apple Pencil support with angle, pressure, high-speed & predictive sampling
* Reliable syncing and multi-user undo/redo
* Pen tool with two sizes & one calligraphic variant. Eraser tool with two sizes
* Ephemeral highlighter tool. On Apple TV, motion-driven, laser pointer-like control with the remote.
* Optimized for latest iOS: file sharing, Split View Multitasking on iPad, Drag & Drop, Today Widget, Quick Actions…
* Hi-res PDF export for a productive workflow
* iCloud sync for personal drawings
* Free Apple TV companion app

 

Live Demonstrations at Vivatech in Paris:
The Creaceed team will be giving live demos of Inko at the Viva Technology (Vivatech) event in Paris from May 24th through May 26th. Practical information will be provided in May through Creaceed’s Twitter and Facebook accounts.

 

Pricing and Availability:
Inko 1.0 is available immediately as a free download on the App Store, and is localized in 12 languages. The free version provides an unlimited number of canvases for personal use without limitation, and lets two or more users try the collaboration feature for a 60-second time-limited session. To remove this limitation, two purchase options are provided:

* Collaboration Pack: a one-time purchase ($19.99) that unlocks collaboration. In this configuration, each user must unlock the pack for time-unlimited sessions.

* Hero Plan: a subscription ($11.99 monthly, $99.99 yearly) that grants one user the ability of initiating sessions that others can join using just the free app, with no purchase required for the other users. Ideal for schools and enterprises.

A Fun Cat Piloted, Physics Based Rocket Game Launches

Riada is excited to launch the beautiful Jasper’s Rocket, a new game for iOS and tvOS featuring Jasper the cat. This cat’s got problems. Marooned on a moon where the currency is bananas, Jasper’s rocket wasn’t designed for paws and is horribly fuel inefficient. Luckily, a chain of service stations operated by monkeys accepts bananas for fuel. But just how far can Jasper get on such an alien moon orbiting a gas giant in a remote binary system, while avoiding prowling flying saucers?

A Fun Cat Piloted, Physics Based Rocket Game Launches

Features:
* Procedurally generated terrain
* 120 progressively challenging goals
* Fluid, physics based flying in either direction
* Dreamy zen gameplay, visuals and original sound track

* Game Center integration with high score and best distance leaderboards
* Ever changing weather conditions including thunderstorms, snow and rainbows
* Beautiful nighttime flying with twinkling stars and glowing, gently swaying alien plants
* Includes one plucky black cat, monkeys, flying saucers and timid droids in need of a lift

 

Jasper’s Rocket is exclusive to iOS and tvOS, and is a Universal Purchase. Written entirely in Swift with SpriteKit, Jasper’s Rocket takes advantage of Game Center, and iCloud for sharing level state across devices. On Apple TV Jasper’s Rocket makes full use of game controllers while also feeling natural and intuitive with the Siri Remote (unless you have paws).

Captain Temporium for iOS & tvOS is a Classic Shoot’em Up

Independent developer, Mark Hessburg today is proud to announce the release of Captain Temporium 1.0, a classic shoot’em up arcade game developed for iOS devices and Apple TV. Unlike the original classic games Captain Temporium features 3D graphics, yet its gameplay is restricted to a 2D plane.

Captain_Temporium_screen

The game uses techniques like subtle changing the player’s viewing angle to enhance the 2.5D experience based on the motion of the player’s vessel. Nonetheless as a modern game Captain Temporium offers all those features like physically based rendering that you would expect from a state-of-the-art title today. The result is an all new fresh look for the original classic fun of the golden age of video gaming.

 

“I’ve took the original fun and simplicity of the typical early 1980s arcade style of gaming,” said Hessburg, “and carefully transformed it into a modern game of the 21st century.”

 

Gameplay follows a simple arcade concept: The player takes control of a futuristic jet and travels trough time to fight biplanes, warbirds, helicopters, jets, rockets and even UFOs. Each level ends with a final opponent (the boss) which is harder to beat than any of the other aircraft. The overall level of difficulty increases as the game progresses by increasing amount of enemies, the cloud cover and overall speed.

 

Captain Temporium is a classic fast paced shoot ’em all up style arcade game. An evil time traveling empire has altered the fabric of time by invading contemporary history. They’ve taken over our technological achievements, starting with the dawn of flight. Captain Temporium is the last remaining pilot of the temporal air force. She desperately fights the enemy wherever she finds them – in the skies from the early 20th century and on into the future. Now only you can save our history and future. Take control of her time machine and fight the endless onslaught!

 

Captain Temporium 1.0 is $1.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide through the App Store in the Arcade/Games category.
