Matmi's upcoming mobile game - Rollabear bit.ly/ImDTgO

 

It has been three years in the making. Two years late. Lots of stress. Many disasters, three re-writes. 6 designers and artists, three developers, and 1 crazy boss. No bears were hurt in the making of this game. But a few developers lost their minds.

 

Looking for beta testers. If you are interested in being a beta tester for Rollabear, please email info@rollabear.co.uk or sign-up on http://www.rollabear.co.uk/

Umami for iPad Knows What’s on Your TV

Umami for iPad Knows What’s on Your TV | New Digital Media | Scoop.it

Billed as a “TV Companion” by its developer, Umami for iPad is a entertainment app that knows what show you’re watching. Umami uses your TV’s audio to sync to programs aired on major networks and basic cable within the last week. Viewers can also simply type in a show to receive a customized program filled with bios, news, photos, and other information about the show they are watching.


Umami is synchronous, which means its content changes depending on what you’re watching. The app works whether the TV broadcast is live or on a DVR. Umami creates a home page for each show that links to IMDB, Wikipedia, Google, Facebook, and Twitter.


Umami is free to download from the App store and doesn’t require users to sign up for an account. To use Umami, just open it near your television; the app does the rest. Hint: if Umami isn’t finding your program, try closing the app and opening it again. Although the TV’s volume needs to be on, it doesn’t need to be blaring; Umami actually correctly detected the right program from another room.

Apple dominating Android with 84 percent of mobile gaming revenue

Apple dominating Android with 84 percent of mobile gaming revenue | New Digital Media | Scoop.it
There’s a reason why so many developers feels iOS users are more valuable than Android: Apple is killing it in mobile gaming with 84 percent of all mobile gaming revenue in the US.

 

“When analyzing Apple’s successful monetization, there is one dominant factor outside of differences in audience demographics and preferences: Apple requires users to connect their credit card information directly to their account, thus creating a seamless purchase experience,” said Newzoo chief executive Peter Warman in a statement.
