Sweet Stuff Happening in Android and iPhone

At Shockoe IT development is a lot like baking sweet stuff in the best kitchen ever. It involves hard work and creativity, and the end result just tastes so good that you have to share it. Here are some cool happenings in Android Land that you can download for dessert.

Defend Your Turf! Tower Raiders 2 Beta is On The Warpath
At Android Police, Artem Russakovski is extolling the virtues of the epic Tower Raiders 2 Beta is a sequel for Android that gives you five levels and multiple weapons to destroy the onslaught of enemy forces attacking your stronghold. Check out his blog for great graphics and uber-excitement.

Foodies Unite
Food-related apps are about as numerous as all the closet foodies out there. Whether they cater to chefs, beer snobs and or cheese fanatics, smartphones are getting more savy about our diets. Brown-Eyed Baker published a list of cool food apps for iPhone with some great options available for cooks. Natalie Whittle at FT.com also offers several great options for Euro foodie apps. A whole app dedicated to finding the best Belgian beers? Splendid!

We’re proud to add our most recent app, iYUMMi, as a great food app with the potential to sprout additional tasty spinoffs this year. Users can log in via social media to critique photos of their favorite “yucks” and “yumms.” It’s sure to get friends talking over dinner again! Check it out here.

A Heart for Pong:
We heard about this from Anthony Domanico of Android and Me. Pong for Hope is an awesome philanthropic endeavor that brings the power of Android to a whole new level. The youth of the First Church of the Nazarene in Warrensburg, MO will play the original arcade Pong for donations to the American Heart Association. They have SURPASSED their goal, earning over $6,000! That’s a lot of Pong for a great cause! They are assisted in their cause by Streamly TV and Ray Walters (Android Guys). Check out their website for more information in their epic win.

 

Suite Tips Picks Up Steam

Your time is valuable. We’ll make this short.

Let’s face it- the last thing we need is more useless information.
The average user is heavily bombarded by digital data every day. Pop-ups, advertisements, and junk mail hedge in at every turn. It’s gotten to the point where instead of seeking information out, we just want to hide from it. Believe it or not, these factors influenced the creation of Suite Tips.

Thankfully, Suite Tips can provide a panic-free way to get access to what you need, and fast (and without wading through that other stuff). It’s a unique little app made for iPhone by Adobe users, for Adobe users. It’s not a design panacea, or a reason to ditch your pristine Adobe CS5 manuals, but it is quick, reliable and to the point.

We like to think that what makes the app truly unique is the double tutorial feature. As avid students and pros send us their own sweet shortcuts and design tips, our web development team transforms them into text and video tutorials (for all you visual learners out there, *sigh*) that provide specific data to solve design issues. Each tutorial is under a minute long, too. Not bad.

We hope you’ll try it out. Check it out at www.suite-tips.com, and then get back to that important work you were doing.

Suite Tips – Your Adobe Certified Instructor in your pocket.

It is my pleasure to introduce a new mobile application to promote the easy use of Adobe software products- Suite Tips!

At Shockoe.com we believe that information should be fast, accurate, and above all, accessible.  That is why we designed Suite Tips, an innovative mobile easy-access tool for Adobe software users.  The application is based on top Adobe instructor Sean Cooke’s quick reference guide, Mr. Cooke’s Little Brown Book. Suite Tips also provides 100% Adobe instructor-tested tips, tools and functions in quick text and video tutorial formats for iPhone.  Android and Blackberry apps are soon to follow.

Suite Tips also encourages user participation. Instructors worldwide are invited to test drive Suite Tips and submit their own unique items for possible inclusion in our database. Designers can to submit questions for our support team to upload and answer. We are confident that together we can make Suite Tips an invaluable Adobe quick reference tool.

As Suite Tips is under constant review by Adobe instructors, the one-time $3.99 purchase price supports the constant incorporation and refining of existing material.  You will save on software reference and update manuals, and still have access to the latest information.  Now that’s Suite bliss!
