Play 20Levels Match Puzzle Games Offers Discounts and Luxury Gifts

Abu Dhabi-based entrepreneur Huda Al Enezi has released 20Levels – Match Puzzles & Win 1.0.10 for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and Android devices. The mobile game doesn’t just entertain but also enhances the player’s shopping experience. The game combines the famous color matching gaming model with exciting shopping opportunities that help the players save money big-time.


Whereas most of the color-matching games available on Google Play Store and Apple’s App Store are confined to winning game points and being content with that, winning in 20Levels jumps out of your mobile phone and becomes a reality when you can save money and avail discounts through the coupons and other discount opportunities in various retail stores. The more you win, the greater the percentage of discounts that you get. Hence, playing and winning in 20Levels becomes not just enjoyable, but also profitable.


It is a simple puzzle game available both on Android and iOS. It connects real-life shoppers with real-life discounts and savings. The interface and the flow of the game have been purposely kept very simple and straightforward to appeal to the broadest user base. The focus of the game is not the complexity of solving the color matching game but gathering opportunities for saving cash and receiving gifts and discount coupons. The challenge is to finish 20 levels in as little time as possible. In between you also watch a video and answer the ASK ME to survey to get reword moves and times, to find clues to add to the excitement and sense of adventure.


Want to save time or feeling stuck? From within the game, you can purchase boosters and color matches that can remove obstacles and help you move to the next level faster and with ease.


Before you start playing the game, you can decide whether you are playing for discount vouchers and coupons from well-known brands or the “Mystery Box”. Whereas, for discount vouchers and coupons, you know for which items you will be playing and attempting to score points, with the mystery box, although it is a secret what you’re going to end up with, the prices are of much greater dimension such as smartphones, tablets, other expensive gadgets and appliances, and luxury clothing.


20 Levels, allows shoppers to participate, win and redeem discounts for purchases at a number of incredible online retailers, just like yours! With every new level achieved, they will unlock a reward and as you might expect, the response has been overwhelmingly positive.


The game is available for download on Google Play Store and Apple’s App Store. For further inquiries and collaborating as a merchant, contact Huda Al Enezi.

ABBYY FineScanner AI Finds Docs in Gallery and Recognizes Text Offline

ABBYY, a global leader in Content IQ technologies and solutions, today announced the release of ABBYY FineScanner AI, the next-generation mobile scanner for iOS and Android. The new AI-enabled functionality allows the user to instantly find photos of documents in the gallery and recognize the text in them without an Internet connection.


FineScanner AI saves valuable time and effort by eliminating manual search and scrolling. The app uses neural networks to instantly sort through the gallery and find images with text and photos of documents suitable for recognition. The new feature is available today on iOS and Android devices and works automatically when the user opens the gallery in the app. The shortcut is especially convenient for those who frequently take photos or save images to the gallery. Once the right scan is located, the user can optimize it for viewing and printing (crop, correct the perspective, apply filters, eliminate noise and boost contrast), recognize and edit the text, convert and share the document via email, messaging or cloud services.


FineScanner AI also received one of the most requested features – offline text recognition. Now Android and iOS users can recognize and edit the text in their scans without an Internet connection – ABBYY’s optical character recognition technology works locally on the device. Offline recognition is perfect for frequent travelers and those who work with sensitive and confidential documents. It does not preserve the document’s original layout but offers superior security and speed. To preserve the layout or convert the document into a different format, an Internet connection is required. FineScanner’s online OCR technology allows to create a perfect digital copy with the original headers, graphs, images, and tables and convert it into 12 popular formats (PDF, DOCX, XLSX, etc.). The technology works with 193 languages online and 63 offline.


FineScanner AI is a perfect companion for banking, sales, legal, medical, and consulting professionals. The world’s leading companies, including a Big Four consulting firm, leverage customized versions of the application to help their employees efficiently manage documentation and move towards a paperless office.

Re:Schedule Calendar for iPad: A Better Way to Run Team Meetings

Independent development team, Re: Schedule Inc today is proud to announce the launch of Re:Schedule Calendar 1.0.4, their powerful new calendar app for iPad devices. The app is designed to aid people who spend much of their day running meetings. It brings the tools they need for meetings, such as note-taking and action items/task management, right into their calendar.



Re:Schedule Calendar allows users to manage meeting overload. Team leaders, product managers, and project managers will find that Re:Schedule Calendar makes it easy to prepare for meetings, lead productive discussions, and track results.


In many apps, users need to manually organize information and permissions. In task managers, they may maintain a “Team -> Project -> Tasks -> Subtasks” hierarchy. Document tools may use a “Folder -> Folder -> Document” paths for organizing meeting notes.


Instead, Re:Schedule uses the calendar as an organizing mechanism for the user’s information. This offers several advantages. Users no longer need to manually organize and maintain information hierarchies. They can find information such as meeting notes and tasks more intuitively by scrolling to the appropriate day. They see the information most relevant to them for that moment, since the calendar always opens up to today’s information.


Tapping on a meeting opens a meeting “workspace.” Here, users can add agenda items to meetings, take notes that are organized within the agenda, and attach tasks or action items to a specific meeting. Users can easily refer to previous notes or view all open tasks for the meeting series. Upon completion of a meeting, Re: Schedule automatically shares meeting notes with all of the participants. If a user misses a meeting, they can simply tap on it in their calendar to view its notes.


Features Include:
* Calendar – Organize the work schedule by planning meetings and tasks together
* Task time slots – Block time in the calendar for completing tasks
* Google Calendar compatible – Sync meetings with Google
* Task Manager – Manage personal to-dos and assign tasks to teammates
* Meetings – Add an agenda to meetings and take organized notes right in the Calendar
* Much more


Re:Schedule is a calendar for all of a user’s work. The app allows better time management by planning meetings and tasks together. Users can manage meetings and manage their associated tasks, blocking time off to get those tasks done. Tasks can be viewed in a handy day, week, or month views in the calendar to offer a clearer overview of upcoming deadlines. Re:Schedule works with Google Calendar accounts to sync the meeting information with Google.


The app’s task manager features make it the perfect tool for teams. Tasks and action items can be attached to meetings so teams can discuss progress at recurring meetings. Tasks can even be assigned to team members that are not Re:Schedule users.


Re:Schedule helps users run meetings more efficiently, thanks to its ability to add agendas to meetings. The agenda item currently being discussed is highlighted, allowing participants to follow along with the meeting. Meeting notes are organized according to the agenda and automatically shared with participants. Team members that miss a meeting can tap on a meeting to view the meeting notes. All notes are organized automatically by meeting, making them easy to find.


Recurring meetings are where Re: Schedule really shines, as a mere tap of a button shows users organized notes for the meeting series allowing users to refer back to previous discussions and decisions. Tasks can easily be attached to a meeting series to allow discussion of their progress in future meetings.


Device Requirements:
* Compatible with iPad
* Requires iOS 11.0 or later
* 27.6 MB


Pricing and Availability:
Re:Schedule Calendar 1.0.4 is free and is available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Productivity category. Re:Schedule offers a monthly subscription plan for $5.99 per month and a yearly subscription plan for $59.99 per year (prices vary per region). A 30-day free trial is available. After the trial, if users choose not to subscribe, they can continue to view their previously created data for free.

Each quiz comprises three rounds of increasing complexity and users successively win more substantial amounts of gold coins as they progress through each round.


To start playing, players can choose from three categories in every round and play alone or against their friends in head-to-head matches. Adding more fun into the game is the concept of boosters that enables players to increase their response time or remove incorrect answers to move faster in the game.


“Know It or Blow It app is a fun mobile game to expand your knowledge about the world around you while enjoying the thrill of a fast-paced quiz anytime you wish,” says Tymeka Lawrence, Founder of Tymedia. “Today, we are flooded with competitive mobile games that put our motor skills to test. However, there are limited occasions of expanding our knowledge base through these games. We believe it is good to learn more about the world we live in and, with this in mind, we have included comprehensive categories of questions in the Know It or Blow It app so that users learn something new every day,” she adds.


* Thrilling mobile-based quiz game
* Global leader boards to show off your knowledge
* Big Break question and boosters for extra fun
* Play alone or against your friends for healthy competition
* Learn new things every day
* Choose your categories and hone your knowledge effortlessly


The game is unique and includes three progressive levels of increasing complexity. The first two rounds comprise of five increasingly difficult questions in three categories, each. The winning amount increases in proportion with the complexity level of the question and doubles in the second round. Players can choose the categories they would like to play in every round. Hidden in the first and second rounds are also ‘Big Break’ questions on which players can place a bet. If answered correctly, the player wins the amount or loses it in case the answer to the question is incorrect. Boosters are not allowed on the Big Break question.


Having completed the first two rounds, the players progress into the third and final round of the quiz that only comprises one last question. However, not every player can enter the final round. You must have earned a positive score in the previous two rounds to make it to the final step of the challenge. No boosters apply in the final round and players can bet up to the amount of coins earned in the previous rounds. The winner gets the amount of the winnings that can be used to play in tournaments across various cities of the world and increase their global ranking.
