Fly like a butterfly, jump like a frog in this great new iPhone and iPod gaming app!  Dodge spikes, fly trap, catch flies, and with the help of bonuses land on the lily pad of your dreams…even capture your frog princess.  With over 45 levels of play, say hello to your next gaming addiction!

Sacramento, CA – Skyworks, coming from their most recent success with World Cup Table Tennis HD™, an immensely popular #1 free gaming iPad app last month, has unveiled their newest gaming app, Slyde the Frog™. Players are put in charge of Slyde (equipped with ninja-like gymnastic skills and a high-strength crash helmet) and tasked with getting their little green friend onto the lily pads so he can chomp down on some delicious flies. While most amphibians might take the easy way and jump from lily pad to lily pad, this daredevil needs your help for his first push, using that momentum to back flip towards his unsuspecting prey. Watch out though! Push too hard, and Slyde will fly past the bucket and crash into a wall. Push him too weakly and he just crashes into the water.

Slyde the Frog is available in the Apple iTunes store for iPhone and iPod Touch, and is currently absolutely free to download. With additional level packs available, global score boards, and Facebook connectivity to rank yourself among your friends this is the coolest game to hit the hot summer gaming market yet.  So check it out, and show Slyde the Frog some love!

No digital frogs were hurt in the making of this game.

The ability to access and control a computer remotely has long been the domain of IT professionals and the super tech savvy, requiring complex setup and a near expert level of computer competence as well as budget willing to shell out high monthly fees. A new app launching this week for Android phones and tablets called “Imperio” aims to change that. With its straightforward easy install system and a wallet friendly price of $9.99 ($4.99 for the first lucky 1000 users), Imperio makes remote PC access an essential everyday tool for anyone’s mobile device.

“Imperio has been built from the ground up with our users in-mind. We realize that most remote access tools (RDP / VNC programs) are too corporate focused and complex” said Dan Metcalfe, CEO of Mobisoft Corp, creators of Imperio. “We wanted to design an app that was powerful, but simple enough that anyone could use it, I’m confident that users will find we have done just that.”

Beyond simple setup, Imperio’s feature set and speed bring it up to par with some major competitors including LogMeIn Ignition and Wyse. Some of these features include:

  • Wakey Wakey – Is your computer at home asleep? Imperio will turn it on to give you access to all your files and applications
  • Imperio Touch Copy™ – quick and easy file transfers to and from device ensuring you always have the data you need at your fingertips
  • Music / Audio streaming from PC to Mobile lets you not only see what’s going on, but hear it as well
  • Pinch / Pull zoom and expand for easy navigation of the remote computers screen from mobile device
  • PC compatibility with Windows 7, XP, Visa – either Professional, Ultimate or Enterprise + all Windows Server versions
  • Multi-Device support giving unlimited remote machine access on one license
  • Its secure: – With built in NLA (Network Level Authentication), TLS security methods, RDP 256-bit and 128-bit SSL encryption to industry leading standards
  • Android compatibility on both mobile devices and tablets

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) July 01, 2011-The iCookbook app is now available on the HP TouchPad. The highlight app for anyone who spends time in the kitchen, iCookbook for HP webOS from Publications International includes more than 2,000 recipes from some of the top food brands in the world, and includes features that make it a great sit-on-the-counter meal planning and preparation app.

The unique capabilities of webOS, such as TouchPad’s enhanced navigation methods, enabled PIL to add custom experiences to iCookbook. For example, iCookbook leverages a multi-panel view in the “Prepare” display that makes access to information easier and more intuitive.

PIL has been publishing cookbooks for forty years and sells more than 9 million cookbooks each year. Its team of cooking experts have worked for more than a year on iCookbook and developed it from the perspective of a home cook. “We saw when we were creating iCookbook that many of the recipe apps were not well-suited for use in the kitchen. They were simply recipe and meal planners,” said Jerry Croft, President of the Cooking Division and Digital Media at PIL. “With iCookbook, we started from actual food preparation and worked backwards, looking at what the home cook would need at each step.”

That focus led to several unique features and functions. For example, iCookbook’s “Prepare” feature. Once a recipe has been opened in Prepare, it displays in short, large-font steps-the cook can set the tablet down on the counter and read it from a distance. Among other important features, each recipe also includes a high-resolution photo and, because virtually every cook makes their own special modifications or substitutions, a “Notes” section where cooks can individualize recipes with their additions or comments.

“iCookbook is a category leader in this space, and we’re excited to have it available as part of our TouchPad launch,” said Richard Kerris, vice president of webOS Worldwide Developer Relations, HP.

Additional tools are available to the user, including three built-in cooking timers, a measurement conversion guide, and a chart of substitutions for when you find yourself without a key ingredient. Recipes can be emailed from within the app, or printed with an HP Wi-Fi enabled printer.

iCookbook will be available for $4.99 in the FOOD section of the HP webOS App Catalog and includes more than 2,000 professionally created and tested recipes.
