Nintendo’s First Smart Device App, Miitomo Launches On March 31

1

Don’t miss out on being a part of a Nintendo first! On March 31, Miitomo, the company’s first-ever smart device application, is launching in the United States and several other countries. Miitomo is a free-to-start social experience that lets users spark one-of-a-kind conversations with friends in a whole new way using Mii characters. The app recently launched in Japan and was downloaded more than 1 million times in its first three days of availability, while achieving the #1 most downloaded free app status in both the App Store and Google Play storefronts.

Getting started with Miitomo and being a part of this Nintendo milestone is easy: After downloading the application for free on the App Store for iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad, along with Android devices, users create a Mii character and customize facial features like eyes and hair, as well as voice and personality. Users can also use the camera on their smart devices to snap a photo of themselves, which can be used to create a Mii, or they can simply import their Mii from their Wii U or Nintendo 3DS systems using a QR Code.

Once their Mii is ready, users can add friends who already have the app in person, or by linking the app with their existing Facebook or Twitter accounts. After that step is complete, it’s time to answer some questions! Miitomo creates conversations and turns discussions into a form of play by prompting users to answer all kinds of fun questions. How would you define your fashion style? What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten? If you were given ten grand to spend in one day, what would you do? The answers get shared among friends, sparking interesting conversations – part of the fun is discovering unexpected facts about your friends. When users hear how their friends responded to questions, they can give answers a “heart” or a written or picture comment.

Apple Announces Music Memos App

2016-01-21-applevoicememos

Apple today announced a new addition and a major update to its family of music-making apps for iOS that make it easy for people to tap into their musical potential and create incredible music no matter where they are. An all-new app called Music Memos lets musicians and songwriters quickly capture, organize and develop their musical ideas right on their iPhone. And a major update to GarageBand for iOS introduces multiple new features, including Live Loops, a fun way for anyone to make music like a DJ using only their iPhone or iPad.

Musicians and songwriters around the world have used the Voice Memos app on their iPhone to quickly record ideas, and many hit songs first started as Voice Memos. The new Music Memos app is inspired by Voice Memos and takes the functionality even further by adding musician-friendly features designed specifically for songwriting and developing musical ideas. With Music Memos, you can record any musical instrument through the iPhone’s built-in microphone in a high-quality, uncompressed format, then name, tag and rate it to start building a library of your ideas. The app can analyze rhythm and chords of acoustic guitar and piano recordings, and instantly add drums and a bass line to provide a virtual, customizable backing band that plays along to match the feel of your song. Music Memos can even provide basic notation that displays the chords that were played. With iCloud your Music Memos are automatically available across all your Apple devices so you can open them in GarageBand or Logic Pro X to further develop your songs. Musicians can easily share their ideas via email or with their fans through Apple Music Connect. For more information about the new Music Memos app, visit, www.apple.com/music-memos.

New Treatster Tool Maps Out Your Best Trick-or-Treating Route Ever

1

Every trick-or-treater knows the house: The awesome one with the over-the-top spooky décor—and the king-sized candy bars. As Target geared up for Halloween this year they wondered: What if you could map out all the must-visit trick-or-treating houses in your neighborhood?

2

Welcome to the future of trick-or-treating: Treatster is the world’s first social network designed exclusively for parents to help take their kids on an exceptional candy quest. The mobile site collects user-generated input from people who up-vote the best haunts by marking them on the map with a pumpkin “treat” pin. The more up-votes the house gets from trick-or-treaters, the larger the pumpkin appears (users can vote one time for a house).

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announces the Man of Steel game for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, as well as Android smartphones and tablets, will be available beginning June 14, 2013 on the App Store, Google Play and Amazon Appstore for Android. Based on DC Comics’ iconic Superman character and inspired by the Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures feature film “Man of Steel,” the game is a 3D-brawler that lets players combat General Zod and his invading Kryptonian forces on both ground and air in a fast-paced mobile adventure.

Developed by Phosphor Games Studio, Man of Steel provides players with two diverse game modes. Featuring custom, console-quality cinematic sequences, Story Mode transports players directly to Smallville, the Kent Farm and other familiar settings to battle General Zod and save Earth from its destruction. In Survival Mode, fans see how long they can last against a progressively more difficult swarm of Zod’s forces. Players can share their scores with friends to see who the ultimate Man of Steel is, as well as upgrade their skills and unlock new suits by winning battles and earning experience points along the way.

The Man of Steel App is available for $2.99 from the App Store on iPhone and iPod touch or at www.AppStore.com. An HD version is available for $4.99 on iPad.

The game is available for $4.99 for Android smartphones and tablets from Google Play or Amazon Appstore for Android.

Hater

hater-xl

For those of you who are sick of only getting to “like” something on Facebook and other social networks, now there’s a free iOS app specifically for all the things you can’t stand.

“You share the things you hate with the people you love,” said Jake Banks, chief executive of Hater. “It’s basically like Instagram for everything you hate.”

So what are people hating on? A quick scroll through the app’s popular “hates” turned up traffic, long lines, the Lakers’ disappointing season and people taking pictures of themselves making “duck faces” — illustrated by a photo of Kim Kardashian with her lips in an exaggerated pout.

Users have their own stream and can upload or take photos of things they dislike.

Check out Hater HERE.
