TappyTaps Introduces Barkio for Pet Owners to Monitor Their Dogs

TappyTaps introduces Barkio 1.0, a multiplatform dog monitoring app for phones, tablets, and computers. Barkio allows anyone to watch, listen and interact with their dog remotely, without the need for special hardware. The app was especially prepared with a focus to solve dog’s separation anxiety. With live audio and video, dog owners can see and hear everything that their pets are doing, and interact with them remotely. Barkio turns any two phones, tablets, or laptops into a smart dog monitor and proves to be a helpful tool when dealing with dog separation anxiety.

 

 

HD video monitoring – With live video feed, pet owners can check what their dogs are up to. The video transmission works on any network, including WiFi and cellular data.

 

Sound monitoring – Barkio is triggered every time a noise is captured. The app offers five different levels of microphone sensitivity to make sure the pet owner never misses a single bark.

 

Remote interaction – Thanks to Barkio, the pet owners have a chance to communicate with their dogs remotely. They can talk to the dog directly through the microphone feature or by pre-recording short voice messages and playing them to the dog when needed. Talking to the dog helps to calm it down when the dog is nervous, anxious, or disobeying.

 

Custom commands – Record custom voice messages such as Stop, Sit, or Stay and send them to your dog remotely whenever you need. Commands come in handy when the pet owner needs to calm the dog, but can’t talk at the moment.

 

Two-way video – When talking to the dog, pet parents may use the “Face” feature to stream a video of themselves to the dog. Some dogs proved to react better when hearing and seeing their owners at the same time.

 

Multiplatform app – Barkio is available for multiplatform usage among iOS, Android, macOS, Windows, and Linux. Covering all these platforms, we hope to offer unlimited monitoring options to pet parents all around the world.

 

All family members can join monitoring – Barkio is tied to a Family Account, which means multiple family members can use Barkio and join the monitoring of their dogs.

 

Activity log – Pet owners will never miss a single bark with a timestamp from all monitorings. Activity log records all noises so the pet owner can check at any time to find out what’s been going on. The activity log helps to understand dog behavior patterns and discover any problems.

 

Smart notifications – Barkio keeps the customers notified in every situation. The app will send notifications when the dog is noisy or resting, with recorded noise for the pet owner to listen to.

 

Power saving background mode – When using the app on the background, Barkio switches to a power-saving mode which informs the pet owners about their dogs through notifications. The audio and video are not transmitted, which saves the battery and lets the pet owners enjoy other apps.

 

A helpful tool for separation anxiety – Separation anxiety affects dogs of all breeds and ages. Barkio helps to detect separation anxiety as it allows the pet owners to see how the dog behaves when it’s alone. Barkio also helps with solitude training to help the dog feel comfortable when being alone.

 

iOS and Android versions are available worldwide exclusively through the App Store and Google Play. Mac, Windows and Linux versions are available to download directly from Barkio online. Barkio costs $19.99 (USD) / year or $2.99 / month for up to 10 devices.

 

Music Vibes Piano App for the Deaf on iOS

Interactive Coconut releases Music Vibes, piano app for iOS that doesn’t just play music as audio, it can also play it as haptic vibrations. That’s right, you can feel the music with vibrations! If you place the phone to your jaw, or the side of your head, the vibrations can be “heard” as music – even by some deaf or hard of hearing people! A fascinating and thrilling experience.

 

 

Famous composer Ludwig van Beethoven became deaf later in life. When his hearing had degraded significantly, Beethoven looked for support, and after finding nothing that helped in contemporary solutions, he turned to experimentation. He discovered that if he clenched a rod in his jaw and held it to the soundbar of the piano he was playing, the vibrations he could feel in his jaw could be experienced as sound! Little did Beethoven know that he had discovered the phenomenon now known as bone conduction.

 

Music Vibes takes this 19th century discovery to the 21st century! Instead of a real piano producing audio vibrations, Music Vibes is a piano app that can produce haptic feedback vibrations on iPhones. By pressing your iPhone to your jaw, users can actually feel the vibrations become sound and melodies.

 

Music Vibes has many of the features

  • Play music using the piano keys.
  • Record a tune and play it back.
  • Save a tune for later.
  • Share a tune with friends to play in their Music Vibes app.
  • Turn audio on and off or control the volume.
  • Load preset melodies from the library.

 

Of course the one feature that sets this app apart from other piano apps, is that you can turn vibration on and off, or even control its intensity!

 

Music Vibes is free. It does offer an In-App purchase of $1.99 (USD) to download a Christmas Pack of Christmas melodies – a pack of 15 Christmas classics, especially for this month, that you can play. The developer has also provided several preset melodies to load, and expects to add to these over time. For more information on Music Vibes, read the company announcement.

 

Pico Christmas Tree AR for iPhone – Decorate Virtual Christmas Trees 

Independent developer Boleslaw Walczyk announces Pico Christmas Tree AR 1.0, his entertaining holiday-themed app for iPhone and iPad devices. The app allows users to place a Christmas tree anywhere in the room and decorate it using a wide selection of ornaments and decorations.

 

Select a space in the room where you’d like the Christmas tree to appear, and tap the screen to place the tree. Once the tree has been “planted” in the room, users can then begin decorating the tree, using a wide variety of ornaments and other decorations.

 

“We all love Christmas time, which for my family always kicks off with decorating the tree a few weeks before the big day. It’s a beautiful family bonding experience and the children in the family especially enjoy it,” shares developer Boleslaw Walczyk. “I’ve always felt the experience should last longer than for just a few hours each year. So, with the latest in iPhone technology, I’ve created an app that allows users to have that feeling any time.”

 

Pico Christmas Tree AR’s sharing feature means everyone in the family can join in the decorating fun, without needing to crowd around a single small screen. Families can collaboratively decorate the tree by sharing the decorating session with other iOS devices.

 

 

Features include:

  • Place the tree anywhere in the room using the power of Augmented Reality
  • Change the location, size and rotation of the tree at any time
  • Decorate using a variety or ornaments and decorations
  • Additional decorations available via convenient in-app purchase
  • Auto-decorate feature decorates the tree on its own
  • Save the current tree project and come back to it any time
  • Built-in gallery allows saving trees for later enjoyment
  • Share a photo of your tree with friends and family

 

If users can decide how to start decorating the tree, they can make use of the app’s auto-decorate feature. Simply select the desired decorations, and which colors to use, and the app will randomly place the decorations on the tree.

 

While Christmas is a once a year occasion, decorating the tree need not be, thanks to Pico Christmas Tree AR. Reviewers at EducationalAppStore.com enjoyed the app, saying “This app does exactly what it sets out to do. It provides a creative outlet for children who have become enthralled by the idea of decorating trees for Christmas.”

 

 

The reviewer also said “Those of an artistic inclination will see how colours can be matched to work best, compare busy designs with minimalist ones, and design a tree that works with the decor of each room in their home. Sharing the decoration of a single tree will encourage children to work together and share their ideas.”

 

Pico Christmas Tree AR 1.0 is free and is available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Download in App Store categories.
