Gesture-Based Calculator Released for iOS Devices

InVooDoo LLC is pleased to announce the release of Calcularium 3.0.2, an update to the company’s popular productivity app developed exclusively for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices. Calcularium is a unique product for a small touch screen device that really unleashes the Power of Touch Interface as it was intended to be.

 

Gesture-Based Calculator Released for iOS Devices

 

Calcularium’s gesture language is built on micro-interactions and is nailed down to the following: Swipe left and right to navigate among Functions Section, Conversion Section, and Numbers/Operators Keypad; Tap to add/delete, and Force Touch or Long-Press to Edit or Open. The design language of the Calcularium is based on tokens. All tokens are of the same structure: the left part shows a type of the element, the right part has a result or an entered value and its name on top. In addition to tokens there are pure numbers and math operators.

 

You can set an expression as a variable with the goal to use it afterwards in other expressions and give every component a clear name to recall what it stands for easily. Create a calculation, and next time you reuse it from History section, every component will clearly speak to you. We’ve investigated and leveraged all relevant technologies and UX conventions Apple provides to create a star product for you. Consistency and Coherence of the system makes it amazingly powerful while ingeniously simple.

 

Features:
* Real Time WYSIWYG
* Multi-Level Sub-Calculations with No Limits
* The Ultimate power of Forth Touch and Select Mode
* History: Editable and Reusable Calculations
* Self-Explanatory Naming for Every Component
* Functions and Reusable Expressions

Life Inventory for iPhone or iPad Makes A Fantastic Last Minute Gift Idea

James Hollender’s Life Inventory iPhone or iPad app makes a great last minute gift giving idea. With these apps users gain an in-depth perception of themselves and why they do the things they do. The apps include built-in instructions that help guide users step by step in creating their own Life Inventory to provide greater self understanding of personality, strengths and weaknesses, leading to a better knowledge of self than they ever thought possible. A Life Inventory can also function as a Moral Inventory for those in 12-step programs.

 

User “Hakerz” says, “There isn’t another app like this anywhere and it helps you with problems you face in your life or how to make your life better. Thanks, James for adding a password! In the app there’s an explanation in how this works.”

 

Both the iPad and iPhone/iPod touch versions accomplish exactly the same thing, only the interface is considerably different for each because of the significant differences in screen size.

 

The process of completing a Life Inventory does not directly address anyone’s specific problems, habits or addictions, but rather helps the user examine in detail events that have transpired in their life. The Life Inventory apps gently assists the user in probing into not only what happened, but also why it happened. The questions asked help the user delve into areas often never considered before, like:

* What did I want
* Why did I want it
* What am I not admitting
* What lie did I tell myself
* What did I leave out or not say
* What lie did I tell others
* Have I ever done the same thing
* Was it any of my business
* Were my expectations reasonable
* What was the real truth
* What was I not seeing
* Did I fail to see the facts of the situation
* What actions did I take to get what I wanted
* What actions did I omit to get what I wanted

 

Life Inventory guides the user through six different steps, each with its own activity grouping, for making a Life Inventory:
* Build Lists
* Causes and Effects
* My Part
* Fears Analysis
* Fear Questions
* Sex Relations

 

Throughout the process, users are encouraged to enter data into their Inventory, be completely honest about themselves and take advantage of encouragement and support from others.

 

The Inventory begins by making one simple list, which defines four fixed Categories in which to file away what are broadly categorized as Incidents:
* People
* Institutions and Organizations
* Principles, Ideals and Beliefs
* Sources of Anxiety and Excitement

 

Each of the four Categories will contain hierarchical sub-categories. From there, users outline Entities and then individual Incidents related each Entity.

 

Step-by-step, users complete the Causes and Effects of each Incident. Next, and determine the part they played in each Incident listed. It is not unusual to create hundreds of Incident forms, each devoted to a single incident. The app includes the ability to create and save all written lists and forms with password protection. Having completed all their Incident forms, users can refer to these forms to help list all their Fears. The app includes the following eight pre-defined fears, to which the user is free to add more if desired:

* Other people’s opinions
* Not getting what I want
* Not having control of the situation
* Financial insecurity
* Abandonment
* Physical harm
* Failure
* Success

 

The fifth step is examining each Fear category and answering the following key questions:
* Why did I have this fear
* When did I first notice this fear in my life
* How did I hold on to this fear
* What did this fear make me do
* What chain of circumstances did this fear set in motion in my life
* How did I react to this fear
* What decision did this fear cause me to make
* How did self-reliance fail me
* What should I have done instead

 

And the (optional) sixth and final step is examining Sex Relations, where users answer all the following questions regarding each of their sexual relationships:
* How was I selfish
* Where was I dishonest
* Where was I inconsiderate
* Who was hurt in this situation
* Did I arouse jealousy, suspicion, or bitterness
* Where was I at fault
* What should I have done instead
* What will I do in the future
* Did I pray or have spiritual conversations with him/her
* Did I pray for him/her
* Did I enjoy his/her company
* Did we bring each other closer to God

 

James Hollender is also the author of a suite of Nutrient apps based on the USDA National Nutrient Database:
* iCarbs (Carbohydrates)
* iCholesterol (Dietary Cholesterol)
* iFiber (Fiber)
* iKals (Calories)
* iPotassium (Potassium)
* iProteins (Proteins)
* iSatFat (Saturated Fat)
* iSodium (Sodium)
* iSugars (Sugars)
* Vitamin K (Vitamins K1, K1D & K2)
* iNutrients (encompasses all ten nutrients listed above)

Life Inventory and Life Inventory for iPad are each $11.99 (USD) and available worldwide exclusively through the iTunes App Store in the Lifestyle category. A Lite version of each app is $1.99, which supplement the main app by providing a mock Life Inventory from which the user can learn by example and experimentation, but is limited as to the number of records created so it’s not sufficient to complete a full Life Inventory. Review copies are available on request.

Save even more money with App Bundles:
There are also app bundles where you can save by purchasing both the main and Lite Life Inventory apps along with the $7.99 iNutrients app.

Heather Miller, AP at P140K in Brooklyn used the School ID app taking advantage of the 60 day free trial and says:
“You definitely addressed my issue. We are a multi-sited school (P140K) and our main site has an ID card maker but we’ve always had to make them ‘by hand’ at our off-sites. Paired with the Polaroid Zip printer, I’m able to print 2×3 IDs from your app and that’s streamlined the process. I tried it for one site and am going to do so for another and see how that goes. New tech that makes life easy is so great. The mugbook feature is wonderful … my school safety agents love it. It allows us to share their names and photos without having to include too much sensitive information. It’s really great.”

 

Melissa Nolan, AP at East Jessamine HS in KY used the Tardy Sweep 60 day free trial subscription and says:
“I’ve already shared the app info with some other principals in other districts! It’s going great here! Teachers are happy with the app….students, not so much. 🙂 Our tardies to class have been reduced by 45% since this time last year. It works!!!!”

 

Wes Merta, AP at Strathcona Secondary School in Canada says:
“We have been using the Tardy Sweep App for two years now and are extremely pleased with it. It is allowed us to minimize the number of tardies that our students have been earning and it is a very efficient way of keeping records. It also has become a very good communication tool with our parents. I would highly recommend it to other schools.”

 

A short list of 8 student identifiers may be entered via the app or imported from a .csv file created by Excel or Numbers or output from your existing SIS. Those eight identifiers include:

* Student ID
* First Name
* Last Name
* Birthday
* Grade

Australian Psychologist’s App Helps Put Stressed People to Sleep

Stress comes in many forms and from many things, including traumatic events, chronic pain/illness or simply the demands of a busy lifestyle. One of the first things to suffer is sleep. In fact, experts no longer consider insomnia a sleeping disorder, but a stress disorder. Thankfully, a new mobile app called Sleep Restore, released by renowned Australian psychologist Mark Grant, is helping people around the world find rest through its incorporation of bilateral stimulation, a treatment element of EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing), a cutting-edge PTSD therapy.

 

On first use, Sleep Restore evaluates the issues causing a person to suffer from insomnia and then selects a specialized set of audio treatments for them to listen to as they lay down to sleep. In addition, the app will alert you if it suspects some other potential issues are causing sleep disturbances which you can then bring up with your own physician.

 

Other audio sleep solutions tend to focus only on standard meditations or “relaxing sounds€ such as rainfall to attempt to help a user get to sleep. Unfortunately, an anxious brain soon gets used to these and goes back to being tense or worried. Sleep Restore gets around this through its incorporation of bilateral stimulation (bls) which, in effect, creates an auditory illusion that something is moving, a sensation the brain is unlikely to get desensitized to. This captures and holds attention of the brain long enough for its functioning to be altered. Bls has been found to decrease brain activity associated with stress and stimulate brain activity associated with restful sleep.

 

Sleep Restore 1.1.3 is free to download on iTunes and in Google Play for most mobile devices including phones and tablets. The free version comes with the complete sleep evaluation tool and six tracks that are 20 minutes long each. The tracks consist of a blend of music, nature sounds guided meditations and bls. For those who wish to have more options, a premium version is available for around $9.50 USD (price may vary due to currency fluctuations) for a total of 18 tracks (with bonus tracks). Users who complete a sleep evaluation questionnaire in the app three times receive 2 free bonus tracks and their sleep data will anonymously be evaluated in ongoing sleep research.
