Project Planning Pro Brings an AI-Enabled Chatbot to Their iOS App

Independent development team i2e Consulting today is proud to announce the release and immediate availability of Project Planning Pro 3.4.3, an important update to their project and task management app for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices. The app allows anyone to quickly create a new project plan by entering tasks, their durations, and their start dates. Users can use simple touch-based gestures to edit and update tasks via the app’s interactive Gantt chart.



Project Planning Pro helps teams increase productivity by allowing them to manage their tasks, communicate and collaborate, and avoid missing their all-important project deadlines. Anyone can make use of the award-nominated app to plan and manage any size or type of project, directly from their iPhone or iPad. The app’s flexibility allows users to manage apps anywhere, in or out of the office.


iVA allows iOS device users to ask the chatbot for information about their projects, helping them to gain insight into the projects, allowing them to make better informed decisions. Currently, the feature is in a beta “iOS-only” version, but the company has plans to roll the chatbot out to other platforms in the near future.


Users can ask iVA questions about the overall project, specific tasks, or about specific resources:
* Are any projects due this week?
* What is the total cost of the project?
* Which projects are delayed?
* What are the milestones in the project?
* Which tasks should I be working on today?
* Show me all delayed tasks.
* Who is assigned to a particular task?
* List all delayed tasks.
* And many others


By answering important questions about projects and their associated tasks and resources, iVA makes project management easier. iVA helps users decide the best way to manage their work, providing the critical information managers need to make the right project management decisions.


Currently, iVA only offers information from existing projects. However, iVA will soon be able to create new projects, streamlining project management, something no other project management app currently has the capability to do.


Project Planning Pro still offers the ability to quickly and easily share project information with customers and coworkers in PDF, CSV, or XML file format, offering efficient compatibility with nearly any project management application available for both desktop and mobile devices. i2e Consulting also offers Mac, Windows, and Android versions of the app, making it easy to share projects with across various device platforms.

Free TextGrabber for iOS Adds Real-Time Translation

ABBYY(R), a global provider of content intelligence solutions and services, today announced a major update to TextGrabber for iOS. The application now translates text in real time online and offline and is free to download with a premium subscription for a number of features.


The revamped TextGrabber instantly captures text in 61 languages and translates it in real time to 104 languages online and 10 languages offline. The app allows users to translate text of any color on any background directly on the camera preview screen eliminating the need to take a photo or crop it. In contrast to other translation apps, it does not require users to download languages in order to translate offline.


TextGrabber automatically identifies if the device has access to a stable Internet connection, and if so, uses it to deliver full-text translation into 104 languages in real time. If the device does not have Internet access, the app switches to offline translation, which is essential for travel and everyday situations like understanding menus, street signs, labels, and more. Offline translation works for 10 common languages including English, Spanish, French, German, Chinese, and Japanese. The user also has the option to switch to the offline mode manually in the settings.


From now on, TextGrabber for iOS is free to download. Upon installation, each user can leverage the full functionality of the app to capture, translate, and share three texts. After the three complimentary full-feature uses are over, they can still digitize texts and save them as notes in the app’s internal storage ” this functionality is free. If the user would like to access the full functionality again, they are offered to purchase a subscription for $0.5 a month for the first two months and $2 a month after that.


“We have added the new functionality to TextGrabber to help people travel with confidence, learn foreign languages, and communicate with ease. Now users will be able to download the app free of charge and use it to translate text in real time without effort or delay, online and offline. A Swiss army knife for any everyday situation involving text, the app empowers users to turn their mobile devices into digital transformation assets,” comments Bruce Orcutt, Vice-President, Head of Product Marketing at ABBYY.


As always, TextGrabber for iOS captures text on photo or in real time and connects it to action. The app helps to digitize books, magazines, manuals, screens, menus, posters, and street signs. The captured text can be copied, edited, shared, translated or read aloud via VoiceOver. All links, phone numbers, email addresses, street addresses and event details become clickable for the user to easily perform the corresponding task: follow, call, email, find on maps or add to the calendar. Text recognition is performed on the device. The technology works with 61 languages, the biggest number on the market in its category. As an additional feature, TextGrabber also works as a QR code reader. All the digitized texts and QR codes are saved in the app, easily accessible for further use.


TextGrabber also serves the needs of people with disabilities who can use it to capture and voice virtually any text from print, computer or TV screen. It improves accessibility of information, which is one of ABBYY’s core values and priorities.


The app complements ABBYY’s comprehensive portfolio of tools that simplify capture, digitization, and extraction of data. The company’s offering ranges from top-of-the-line mobile-based optical character recognition (OCR) to enterprise-level automated document processing enabled by machine learning and semantics.


Technical Requirements:
* Text recognition is performed on the device
* For online translation and sharing, an Internet connection is required
* iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
* Requires iOS 9.0 or later
* 123.6 MB

TextGrabber 6.8 is Free (With In-App Purchases) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Productivity category. [GET IT HERE]

Strategy gamers across the world had better start stretching their fingers because mobile gaming publisher Flaregames today announced that its multiplayer strategy dueler Flick Arena is now available globally on the App Store. Launched as the first title in the Flaregames Accelerator programme, Flick Arena is a real-time PvP multiplayer game of strategy and wits in which players build their unit loadout to go head-to-head with other gamers in epic quickfire duels.

At launch, an in-game event called the World Trophy is incentivising – via tier-based rewards – players to earn Trophies for their country and help them to the top of the global leaderboards.


After months of secret negotiations, Flaregames can also reveal that it has persuaded legendary Flick Arena coach Arty “The Flick” Huttmann to come out of retirement and share some of his incredible insights and tips in a brand new guide – The Coach’s Playbook. With over 40 years experience spent coaching some of the world’s best Flick Arena players, Arty reveals never-seen-before critical strategic plays including ‘The Cheesy Wizard’ and ‘The Switcheroo’. He also provides essential wellness advice with a range of finger warm-up exercises to help players avoid serious injury. The Coach’s Playbook is a must-read for all players wanting to up their game.


Key Features:
* Battle against players in physics-based battles!
* Real-time duels against players worldwide

Intergalactic shooter Space Pioneer: Infinite Galaxies

Space Pioneer has been developed by the award-winning game publisher and developer Vivid Games, creator of the Real Boxing series. The game prides itself on its infinite galaxies of gorgeous yet hostile worlds to explore, populated by swarms of ferocious aliens and complimented by a pulsating sci-fi electro-pop soundtrack.


Intergalactic shooter Space Pioneer: Infinite Galaxies


Budding bounty hunters who choose to take up arms in the pursuit of fame, riches and the satisfaction of an extermination job will get to choose from a deadly arsenal of shotguns, flamethrowers, laser blasters and grenade launchers and more – each with their own upgrade path for enhanced killing power. Players can also select different support load-outs, including portable gun turrets and an Orbital Strike for when the brown stuff hits the fan. Players overwhelmed by the alien onslaught can rely on their trusty robot sidekick to provide additional cover fire as well as the familiar witty quote or two. As players progress through different worlds, they’ll be able to unlock skills to boost their offensive and defensive capabilities including increased firepower and shield enhancements.


From dense jungle planets to dry, canyon-filled landscapes, wannabe alien hunters will get up close and personal with a menagerie of overgrown bugs, flesh-eating plants and giant robots – all with a juicy price on their heads/thoraxes/tentacles. With each planet seemingly conquered, players will come face-to-face with the game’s main antagonist Xeldar, a multi-legged behemoth who grows stronger with each encounter.


Space Pioneer also features a vast variety of mission types and objectives from item-recovery to ship repairs. Gamers can also form their own space base to build and upgrade different building types, including the armoury for high-grade armour and the workshop for companion upgrades. Upgrades also provide striking visual changes to characters.


Players annihilating enemies at a rapid pace can further their war efforts by taking part in Horde Mode, a sophisticated wave-based mode in which gamers must do all that they can to survive against a barrage of different enemies to reign supreme.


Vivid Games will be publishing a number of additional titles in 2018 including platform fighter Mayhem Combat(TM) featuring an array of characters, elemental powers and multiplayer modes launching June 2018 and 3D racer Gravity Rider(TM), challenging players to speed through tracks featuring realistic physics-based obstacles coming August 2018.

SyncSpace 6: Collaborative Canvas for Concept Creation

Edinburgh, United Kingdom – The Infinite Kind are excited to announce a major update to SyncSpace, their drawing and collaboration app for iOS. SyncSpace 6 provides a basket full of enhancements, making it the most powerful tool for sharing visual ideas across teams of any size. Think of it as an infinite shared whiteboard where everyone can express their ideas through sketches, photos, text, web pages, and maps on the same canvas.



SyncSpace 6 contains a number of enhancements, including the following highlights:

* Split screen multitasking on iPad
* The canvas can now rotate with the device automatically – You can also use two-fingers to rotate it any other direction, with snapping to 90 degree angles
* Blazing fast drawing, zooming, and panning
* Stylus support including Adonit Jot, Pogo Connect, Scriba, and a special focus on Apple Pencil
* Apple TVs and other external displays now use the full screen and highest available resolution
* Improved palm rest detection
* Performance and reliability improvements to the collaboration service


Using SyncSpace, you’ll never again be limited by the size of the canvas or the amount of space remaining in an existing sketch. You can always zoom in to add detail or zoom out to add context to a drawing. Use the nearly limitless canvas to create drawings from scratch, or draw on maps, web pages and photos. You can also include editable text labels and descriptions to add context to your drawings.


Collaborators need not be on the same local network, and there is no limit to the number of participants. All you need to do is share a drawing’s link (and optional password) and anyone can follow the link to work on the drawing with you. There is no fussing with routers or firewalls – it just works. Your friends and colleagues can even view shared drawings – including live updates – with nothing but a web browser.


SyncSpace drawings can be easily shared to social media or exported as high resolution PNG or PDF files. Sketches can be shown on a nearby Apple TV or any external display, which is perfect for use in meetings and classrooms.


Pricing and Availability:
In addition to the major tech improvements, SyncSpace is now free on the App Store. Non-collaborative use and viewing drawings shared by others is completely free. A modestly priced subscription is required only if you wish to create or modify shared drawings. A subscription to the collaboration service is $2.99 USD per month or $24.99 USD per year (price may vary by country), and includes a 14 day free trial. Anyone who purchased an earlier version of SyncSpace is grandfathered in to a free unlimited subscription. For school, business, or other organisational use, please see the link to set up a private server and bulk license that is customised for your requirements.
