Pocket Watch LLC Mobile App Development Team Acquired by Cybersecurity Firm SR2 Solutions

Beaumont, Texas – SR2 Solutions today announced the acquisition of Pocket Watch LLC’s app development division including their industry leading mobile printing app, ActivePrint. With this new acquisition, SR2 Solutions is planning to develop an entire suite of cybersecurity focused apps intended for everyone.

 

 

SR2 Solutions Founder, Charles Teel, says “we’re seeing new cybersecurity threats every day and this is likely to continue for the foreseeable future. We see it as our job to provide people with the tools they need to keep themselves and their families safe and that is what we plan to do with mobile app development.”

 

Over the next six months, SR2 Solutions will be releasing apps on the Apple iOS AppStore and Google Play Store that individuals will be able to use every day to protect themselves. The details of the first two apps were made public with the announcement of this acquisition. The first to be released will be “SR2 Threat Intel” which will provide users security information about their devices and alert them when there is the possibility that they have been caught up in a breach at their bank, email service, or other services where their personal information might be stored. SR2 Threat Intel will be released by February.

 

The second of these apps to be released, “SR2 SocialMedia Intel”, will monitor a user’s social media accounts and social media in general to identify potential vulnerabilities and alert them if someone else on social media has posted about them in a potentially bad light. According to Teel, “keeping track of how our name is used in the public space can be challenging in this hyperconnected world we live in with social media. Someone can post a total falsehood about you or your family that can negatively affect your reputation and your career as potential employers search social media in their consideration to hire you. We want to help people take control of how their name is used online in a way that is effective and can benefit them.” SR2 SocialMedia Intel is anticipated to be released by April.

 

Pocket Watch’s existing app, ActivePrint, will continue to be sold but under the new SR2 Solutions name. With ActivePrint users gain printing support for the widest variety of document types in the industry to the widest variety of printers. With ActivePrint users can print almost any content on their iPad or iPhone. Document types that you can print with ActivePrint include all of your popular office document types such as word processor documents (including Word and Pages), spreadsheets (including Excel and Numbers), presentations (including PowerPoint and Keynote), PDF files, web pages, handwritten notes, and all of your popular image types. ActivePrint is available on the iOS AppStore with an upgrade to the pro version for $4.99 (USD).

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.
