Public speaking is often quite a nerve wracking event, even for those who have to do it often. While PromptSmart won’t quell those nerves exactly, it will ensure that you feel more confident about what you’re doing. It’s a mobile teleprompter, offering you the same benefits that more expensive tools can provide. It works surprisingly well, too.

Its core feature is its voice recognition tool called VoiceTrack. This allows you to load up a speech, start speaking, and PromptSmart will follow your every word. If you deviate from the speech for any reason, the app will pause where it is and wait for you to return to where you left it. It works well too, picking up words easily enough. For those who want to practice (and can suffer it), you can record your speech as well, listening back to check you got the pauses in the right place and got the right idea across. That feature’s particularly handy when you’ve got an important presentation ahead.

promptsmart4promptsmart2Elsewhere, it’s possible to set up notecards for brief consultation rather than a full blown speech. It’s possible to change around text sizes, fonts, and colors too, to ensure you don’t have any trouble seeing your text as you speak. Timing can also be adjusted via a pre-set scrolling option, meaning the app can keep you speaking at a steady speed. Finally, it’s easy enough to import documents from the cloud or via email so PromptSmart remains distinctly hassle free.

For those used to more inexpensive app purchases PromptSmart might seem initially a little pricey, but it soon pays for itself in confidence boosts and general convenience. For once, an app that uses voice recognition works just as well as it promises to.

Sentinel 4: Dark Star Review

Developer: Origin8
Price: $4.99
Version Reviewed: 1.0.0
Device Reviewed On: iPhone 5

Overall Rating: ★★★½☆

Four years after its predecessor comes Sentinel 4: Dark Star, a sturdy Tower Defense game that might lack the finesse of the modern era but is still pretty enjoyable.

sentinel42Sentinel 4: Dark Star is packed full of features and complexities, but it lacks one notable thing – graphically, it’s really not that special to look at. While I’ve always been one for going for substance over style, it’s still noticeable that Sentinel 4: Dark Star isn’t a looker. There’s also the issue that Sentinel 4: Dark Star carries a premium price tag as well as some micro transactions. It’s possible to dodge these, but no one could be blamed for being a bit irritated at the proposition.

Look past all that though, and discover that Sentinel 4: Dark Star is a pretty varied Tower Defense game. Its 26 levels are plentiful and long lasting, while an Endless mode rounds things off nicely. There are also the four difficulty levels to choose from, steadily adding to the challenge.

sentinel46Most importantly though is the plethora of upgrades on offer. Each level of Sentinel 4: Dark Star can be quite involved, with placed towers leveling-up both through regular attacks as well as permanent upgrades. Even the walls can be upgraded. Some units can be placed in lanes as well as alongside, plus there’s the mighty Sentinel with its own set of abilities and the chance to strengthen nearby units. Refreshingly, for a Tower Defense game, no one’s safe either as enemies can attack towers.

The main issue here is that Sentinel 4: Dark Star doesn’t do a great job of explaining everything. Instead, you’re left to figure things out for yourself. As one of the more complex Tower Defense games, that might prove off-putting for some but it’ll be worth it.

Sentinel 4: Dark Star might not be quite the revolution that some were expecting after its earlier incarnation, but it’s still an excellent example of the genre.

Space Colors Review

Price: $0.99

In space, no one can see a ship explode into hundreds of really cool colors. Wait – colors still show up in a vacuum, right? It’s not like sound, or – eh, never mind. What’s really important is that Space Colors by Team Chaos is a fun, fast-paced shooting game that looks great right here on good ol’ Terra.

Space Colors is primarily a shooter, but it contains some mild roguelike elements, too. Players travel from planet to planet, each with a randomly-generated mission. There may be asteroids to dispose of, or crates to collect, or enemy forces to trade gunfire with. When players emerge victorious, they’re allowed to move on to the next planet in the system.

spacecolors_02Each level of Space Colors is crammed with activity. In fact, it’s pretty easy to become overwhelmed if caution isn’t utilized. Space is thick with asteroids, turrets, and ships of varying size and description that will latch onto the player’s tail and dog them until the end of the universe.

The action certainly keeps things interesting, but there’s no question that chaos reigns at times. Luckily, Space Colors‘ controls are butter-smooth. Players need only tap on a target to lock onto it, leaving their finger free to steer their vessel in and out of the danger zone. Fights are a satisfying endeavor, especially since defeated enemies leave behind weapon upgrades and bombs that make subsequent battles even more of a joy.

While dying in Space Colors forces the player to start over again from level one, it’s possible to work towards permanent upgrades since death doesn’t erase the number of credits collected up to that point. As a result, death may come frequently, but being allowed to work towards upgrades means it never feels like a waste of time.

spacecolors_01Mind, Space Colors isn’t perfect. It’s repetitive, for one thing. The different planets and their amusing descriptions saddle players with the same missions over and over. It’s not so bad when the order of the day is to murder things, but shooting asteroids, collecting credits, and trying to reach a certain level over and over again gets a bit dull. For more information, visit Snappy Apps iPhone App Developers Brisbane www.snappy-apps.com.au

Space Colors isn’t as deep as its roguelike traits would suggest, but it definitely shows players a good time. A good time in space. With lots of colors and explosions. It’s a pretty easy game to enjoy.

Spellfall Review

Overall Rating: ★★★½☆

Combining Match-3 style gameplay with RPG elements is nothing new but, fortunately, you should enjoy Spellfall sufficiently that you won’t really mind that. At least, assuming you can look past some increasingly irritating in-app purchases.

spellfall3There’s a storyline somewhere within Spellfall, but just assume that there are badguys and monsters to kill as well as plenty of experience to gain. Combat is simple yet satisfying, with you matching tiles together to clear them and hopefully setting off a chain reaction or two. Unlike other Match-3 games, you’re not restricted with where you place gems. You can move them around anywhere you want, even if they don’t immediately form a match. It’ll take a few turns to truly realize how convenient that is, but soon enough you’ll be setting up massive combos through this method.

You can build up the use of spells such as poison attacks or a healing ability by combining particular colors of gems and further adding to the strategy involved. Ultimately though, Spellfall is pretty simple yet fun on this side of things.

Outside of combat there’s a plethora of ways in which one can equip new gear and abilities, to the point that it’s a bit cluttered. While combat might be simply figured out, the menus elsewhere aren’t quite as welcoming. This is also where you realize just how vast in number and price the in-app purchases are. Some weapons cost an extortionate amount, although they can be eventually gained by playing every day for a few weeks.

spellfall1What feels less kind is the fact that you have to wait it out to heal up a little too frequently, or pay to speed up your regeneration. You can use a healing spell/rune to help improve the situation but there’s a certain amount of grinding involved here. A one-off fee would have been so much better here for those wanting to avoid such irritants. Similarly, upon defeat you can buy your way back in for $0.99, which seems a little steep for a simple one-off continue.

Dodge past these expensive distractions and Spellfall is a fun experience, but it’s something to be cautious of. Sometimes it feels a little too over the top for comfort.

A new rumour claims Apple's coming 5.5-inch <a href='http://www.snappy-apps.com.au'>iPhone</a> will be called the <a href='http://www.snappy-apps.com.au'>iPhone</a> 6L.” title=”

This post was originally published on Mashable.

All rumours point toward bigger screens for the next iPhones, and now a Chinese website claims Apple is making the large size part of the device’s name. For more information, visit Snappy Apps iPhone App Developers Brisbane www.snappy-apps.com.au

A photo of what Apple Daily claims are components of the next <a href='http://www.snappy-apps.com.au'>iPhone</a>.” title=”

9to5 Mac reports that Hong Kong-based Apple Daily has posted photos of what it claims are components of the next iPhone. While the 4.7- and 5.5-inch screens come as no surprise (although measurements are hard to verify from the pics), the name of the larger iPhone is: the iPhone 6L.

It’s unclear how the site discovered the name (it doesn’t appear on any of the photos), so take it with an extra heap of salt. If true, though, it begs the question: What will Apple’s smaller iPhone be called?

It could be called the iPhone 6C, but that’s unlikely. The only reason the iPhone 5C exists is because Apple was able to essentially repackage the previous year’s model into cheaper components. Since the 4.7-inch iPhone will be a brand-new design, the "cheap" label doesn’t make sense.

The "6S" name doesn’t work either, since the "S" has always been reserved for the second generation of a particular iPhone design, and this year’s revamp will feature all-new models. More likely the 4.7-inch iPhone will be called simply the iPhone 6.

Apple Daily claims to have some battery specs, too. The iPhone 6L will pack a 2,915 milliamp-hour (mAh) battery while the 4.7-inch model’s will be 1,810 mAh, according to the report. (By comparison, the iPhone 5S has a 1,560 mAh battery.)

And that’s pretty much it, apart from what’s already been rumored. The new iPhones are said to have nearly "unbreakable" sapphire-crystal screens, although production difficulties may lead to either higher prices or delays. The new phones will certainly have faster chips and run iOS 8. Apple is rumored to have scheduled an event for Sept. 9.

Word Hack Review

A little like Hangman and a little like Wheel of Fortune comes Word Hack – a quite fun word game that tests your knowledge as well as your vocabulary skills.

The idea is that you’re given a few words with a couple of letters filled in, alongside a simple thematic clue, and you’re left to figure out what the word could be. To help you along the way, different colors are given to certain letters and tiles – meaning your options are cut down to a handful rather than the full 26 letters of the alphabet. Using deductive reasoning you can then try to narrow down what each letter could be. For instance, if the preceding letter is a Q, you know the next letter is going to be a U. For more information, visit Snappy Apps iPhone App Developers Brisbane www.snappy-apps.com.au

wordhack5wordhack2Of course, throughout all this you’re constrained by a time limit that can make you twitchy and liable to make mistakes. There are boosts to help you along the way, such as timer extensions and some that help narrow down what letter could be next. Ultimately though, you need to rely on your language skills.

Word Hack is pretty fun thanks to that, and it’s particularly interesting concluding each level with a high score list that tells you how you’re performing against the rest of the world. The only real issue is that Word Hack is a bit unstable. I found it crashed or froze up a few times on my iPhone 5 upon finishing a game, forcing me to hard reset the app. It’s worth sticking with but I’m hopeful that a future update corrects such problems.

As a free take on a familiar format, Word Hack is certainly enjoyable enough to return to.

The ‘new’ Miami: Shaking off a shady reputation

Corner of building wrapped in stripes, Miami.

Bold vision: Art has transformed Miami’s industrial Wynwood neighbourhood. Photo: Getty Images

Trashy yet entrancing, Miami’s streets offer a diverse mix of creativity.

An American friend recently defined Miami for me in the following way: “I feel like it’s this gorgeous swimming pool and you want to dive in,” he said. “But then you do, and you come up covered in other people’s sunscreen.”

The metaphor was spot-on. Miami manages to seem both beautiful and dirty, alluring and trashily repulsive. There’s mileage left in Joan Didion’s description of the city as a place where construction cranes “hovered on the famous new skyline, which, floating as it did between a mangrove swamp and a barrier reef, had a kind of perilous attraction, like a mirage”.

Spend a little time in Miami and you understand why Gianni Versace oversaw his gaudy empire from here, his mansion a temple to taste so outrageous it became a place of worship for shameless fashionistas.

Still, the city has been undergoing something of a makeover lately. Perhaps attempting to shake its shady reputation, it has staked an unlikely claim on the landscape of American arts and culture.

There’s no better example of this than the National YoungArts Foundation, a respected charity that invests in the artistic development of actors, musicians and dancers by exposing them to mentors such as Robert Redford, Martin Scorsese and Mikhail Baryshnikov.

“The whole mission of the organisation is to identify the next generation of artists,” explains Paul Leher, executive director of YoungArts, when I stop by to take a look at the new headquarters.

Or, in other words, when I stop by the former Bacardi campus, which includes a building depicting sugar cane distillation in floor-to-ceiling hammered glass mosaics. From cheap rum to masterclasses with Josh Groban, Miami is trying to sober up.

Much talk about this “new” Miami inevitably focuses on the Perez Art Museum Miami – formerly the Miami Art Museum – which opened its $US131 million doors last December.

The Perez Art Museum is an impressive stop on any itinerary through the area, but the most interesting developments are actually found a few miles away, in the industrial neighbourhood of Wynwood.

Wynwood has enjoyed an association with artists since 1993, when the wealthy Rubell family walked into a warehouse district still scarred from race riots, and purchased the massive Drug Enforcement Agency confiscated goods facility. This had once housed the contraband cocaine and Kalashnikovs often associated with Tony Montana in Scarface.

The Rubells transformed it into a museum for their collection of Warhols and Basquiats.

This gamble paid off in 2002, when Samuel Keller brought Art Basel to Miami and Wynwood began to transform into a vibrant sideshow for the annual trade fair. For more information, visit Snappy Apps iPhone App Developers Brisbane www.snappy-apps.com.au

Each November, leading gallerists descend on the city to swap pieces and talk business.

Wynwood has bent over backwards to make artists and dealers welcome, turning blighted buildings into dazzling baubles – one is painted in black-and-white stripes; another is deep blue and speckled gold, like an alien giraffe.

Wandering Wynwood is a remarkable experience. Aside from the murals and Dali-esque additions, much of the neighbourhood retains its aura of industrial decrepitude.

The place can feel deserted, menacing after nightfall. Concrete bakes beneath the harsh Florida sun throughout the day. This makes stumbling over galleries or retail stores a surreal thrill. Next to the oil-stained factory of King Automotive Inc is Del Toro Shoes, where 20-something Matthew Chevallard designs men’s slippers in cashmere and stingray skin.

The best way to navigate this small crosshatch of backstreets is to download a map or the convenient iPhone guide, managed by the Wynwood Arts District Association, which also runs a monthly Second Saturday Art Walk. Following the guide’s advice, I collect espresso at Panther Coffee before hitting art studios and intimate galleries.

Eventually I end up at Wynwood Walls, tramping across the AstroTurf to The Peter Tunney Experience, which appears to be an art show, though the “experience” part might refer to that feeling that comes over you when you look at canvasses you can never afford, but ask for the price list anyway.

Thankfully, Wynwood Walls is free. Often cited as the heart of the neighbourhood’s revival, it’s the brainchild of the late developer Tony Goldman.

The buildings of this sprawling complex have no windows, which makes them perfect canvasses for graffiti art.

“By presenting it in a way that has not been done before, I was able to expose the public to something they had only seen peripherally,” Goldman said, when opening the project in 2010.

The murals are diverse, from a baby Hulk by Ron English to a political Allegory of Florida by Stelios Faitakis. They are breathtaking and repulsive, subtle and lurid – faithful, in other words, to the spirit of Miami, even as they turn expectations upside down.

Investors back Optus strategy as revenue and profit continue to fall

Optus lost 126,000 mobile subscribers in the past 12 months. It now has 9.4 million subscribers.

Optus lost 126,000 mobile subscribers in the past 12 months. It now has 9.4 million subscribers.

Optus is hoping that investment in better network coverage and marketing will help it win back mobile customers and finally turn the tide on nearly two years of declining revenue.

“Optus is returning to its challenger roots and taking the fight to Telstra,” SingTel-Optus chief country officer Paul O’Sullivan said.

On the same day telecommunications behemoth Telstra Corporation delivered a bumper full-year result, its biggest rival showed a continued decline in revenue and profit during the quarter ended June 30. For more information, visit Snappy Apps iPhone App Developers Brisbane www.snappy-apps.com.au

Falling mobile subscription rates drove the result as Australia’s second largest mobile carrier continued to lose market share to Telstra, having failed to capitalise on an exodus of customers from third fiddle Vodafone.

Optus, the local operation of dual-listed Singapore Telecommunications, showed a 1.8 per cent drop in net profit to $164 million for the June quarter, compared to $167 million for the same period last year, as year-on-year operating revenue declined 2.8 per cent. The group reports on a financial year calendar that ends on March 31.

“Compared to Telstra, Optus still has a lot of work to do in terms of customer retention and revenue growth,” Nomura analyst Sachin Gupta said.

Optus lost 126,000 mobile subscribers in the past 12 months. It now has 9.4 million subscribers. Prepaid mobile subscriptions edged up just 0.1 per cent while postpaid subscribers fell 2.4 per cent. Total mobile subscriptions declined 1.3 per cent.

Louis Lu, a portfolio manager at Aberdeen Asset Management – one of the largest shareholders in the parent company SingTel-Optus - said the Optus result was in line with forecasts, while the management commentary was consistent with recent guidance.

Better and broader network coverage is Telstra’s biggest competitive edge, and Optus is pushing ahead with a target to provide coverage across 90 per cent of the country by April. Total investment across both the 3G and 4G networks in the financial year ended March 2015 is forecast to hit $1.2 billion.

The company has also aggressively boosted its advertising spend after launching a new marketing campaign in mid-June to promote pricing adjustments and new data plans. Next month, the launch of the iPhone 6 is expected to provide a much-needed boost.

“Even though Optus revenue declined they are executing the strategy quite well,” Henderson Global Investors head of Asian equities Andrew Gillan, another shareholder said.

June quarter underlying net profit rose 12.3 per cent year on year, while earnings before interest tax depreciation and amortisation grew 4.4 per cent. EBITDA margin improved 2 per cent to 29 per cent. Macquarie analyst Andrew Levy said cost control was a highlight, with expenses down 5.2 per cent.

Average revenue per user per month, a key measure for telecommunications analysts, showed a modest increase of 0.7 per cent overall. ARPU per month for prepaid customers added 10.9 per cent but fell 2 per cent for postpaid customers.

Vinted is the app for vinted.com – a site that lets women post their old clothes for sale, trade, or giveaways and lets them get clothes from others at great, thrift store-ranged prices. I found it by accident, and now it’s turned into an incredible obsession.

IMG_4090Buying an awesome top.As someone who spends a lot of time browsing around thrift stores, Vinted is great for being able to do that even from bed. When I first signed up for my account, the service gave me a coupon for $10 toward anything I wanted (this coupon is given to all new users). This did NOT last long. I found dozens of tops, skirts, shoes, and all other things that were just perfect for me. In the time I’ve had it I’ve purchased 11 things, traded with one girl, and sold a few of my older/poorer fitting clothes.

The buying went great. Payments are handled in-house and only given to the seller when you verify that everything is as expected. When selling, the service charges a set shipping rate set up with USPS and gives you a label to print with a tracking number – no muss, no fuss. My only complaint is that the app won’t let you copy and paste the tracking number, so it’s a pain to add it to a tracking app (I use Posted).

vinted2vinted1One of the best features is that Vinted lets you set defaults for the main item feed. I’m really tiny, so I have it set to show me only the smallest sizes, and my specific range of shoe sizes. This saves users from getting really excited about a find, only to learn it’s nowhere close to something they’d fit in. For more information, visit Snappy Apps iPhone App Developers Brisbane www.snappy-apps.com.au

Vinted is a really great way to find new clothes and get rid of your old ones. It’s not just a great app; it’s a brand new addiction. And if you’re browsing around, please check my stuff out: theeternal.

 Take Better Selfies with PanoSelfie

Reviewed by Marilyn Chau

Miao Liao has just released an app, PanoSelfie, that she claims is the first app that enables users to easily capture “panoramic selfies.” Featuring an easy-to-use layout, PanoSelfie makes taking photos of yourself in front of impressive backdrops easier than ever before.

Features: star Take Better Selfies with PanoSelfiestar Take Better Selfies with PanoSelfiestar Take Better Selfies with PanoSelfiestar Take Better Selfies with PanoSelfieemptystar Take Better Selfies with PanoSelfie

Just like its name indicates, PanoSelfie allows iOS users to easily take panoramic-style photos of themselves. This way, their selfies are no longer dominated by their faces; instead, an impressive background can also be easily seen in these panoramic photos. If you’re planning a vacation this is a “must-have” app.

Taking large group photos selfie-style is also made much easier with PanoSelfie. A simple design makes taking these photos extremely easy to do, and brief introductory instructions show first time users how to do so. For more information, visit Snappy Apps iPhone App Developers Brisbane www.snappy-apps.com.au

Various viewing angle options of up to over 130o are available in the app, allowing users to choose how wide they want their selfies to be. PanoSelfie photos can be saved to your regular iOS photo library, leaving you the option of how you’d like to use them next.

Personally, I found that PanoSelfie functioned just as promised and it was fun and easy to use. While some photos seemed to turn out a bit blurrier than ideal, a steadier hand would easily fix that problem.

PanoSelfie iPhone App

The layout of PanoSelfie is very user-friendly. That said, it is also very minimalistic, with very few on-screen icons at any one time.

This lack of icons is appreciated overall, however, as it prevents anything from cluttering up your camera’s photo-viewer when you’re working on setting up the frame for a selfie. Deleting unwanted images taken in the app is easy to do (a function designated by a trashcan icon), and after using the app just once, the other few icons in PanoSelfie are easy to understand as well.

Overall, while a little more effort probably would have taken the graphics of this app from a simply basic design to an aesthetically impressive one, both the appearance and layout of PanoSelfie are still above average.

Available for free through the iTunes Store, PanoSelfie definitely offers consumers a lot for its “cost.” It features an easy to use layout and a unique concept that will definitely be appreciated by all “selfie” aficionados.

While it is somewhat difficult to capture a perfectly clear photo using the app, doing so is also definitely not impossible; a bit of practice and a reliably steady hand should adequately solve this issue.

An in-app option to purchase the “pro version” of PanoSelfie is also available which provides the ability to permanently disable in-app ads.
