Cocologics has updated its ProCamera 7 app with several enhancements. From the update note:
One of our most feature packed updates to date with new TIFF file saving, Open-in functionality, high-res Instagram support and Shadows and Highlights correction tools.
With the new TIFF file format you can now save and edit maximum quality, truly lossless photographs in ProCamera. There are two TIFF formats available, uncompressed TIFF or TIFF LZW for smaller file sizes. You can change the file format in Settings > More > File Format.
Our new sharing functions make it even easier to get your photos online and in print. The Instagram SquarePrepare function now supports high-res exports – making your #ProCamera7 photos sharper than ever. The new Open In option lets you easily transfer photos between supporting editing and sharing apps. Open In supports TIFF functionality. We’ve also improved our DropBox compatibility and added Vimeo sharing. The new print option makes it possible for users to wirelessly print their photos at home or with print services that support the function.
We had an opportunity to review the app late last year; ProCamera 7 is available on the App Store for $4.99.

Runtastic PRO, which is a GPS tracker for fitness activities, is a great option for those interested in being more active on a daily basis. The app primarily features mapping functionality, but includes other features such as a personal training diary, geotagging, a personal voice coach, post-workout statistics, graphs for tracking your progress over time, social media sharing, and more.
But the app is now even better than it was before, with the release of its version 5.0 update.

Version 5.0 has a completely new user interface design and structure, as well as post-activity improvements including new automatic sync and hydration features.

D&D Lords of Waterdeep, which got a relatively favorable review here at 148Apps, is a Dungeons and Dragons-themed turn-based strategy board game that can be played against AI or human players alike in a wide variety of exciting game modes. In a recent update, the game received an expansion entitled “Undermountain,” which brings even more features and gameplay mechanics to what is already a great D&D-style game.
In the update, you’ll find “new lord cards, intrigue cards, quests, an expanded map, and new buildings,” according to the app’s description on the App Store. Also included in this version 1.10 update is the ability for human multi-player games to be played with 6 people (topping the previous maximum of 5).
You can get D&D Lords of Waterdeep on the App Store for $4.99.
Brain Seal Entertainment has announced its new game, Dark Quest 2: Castle of Doom. The 2D RPG action game is due out at the end of the year as a universal app.
According to information provided by Brain Seal, players will be able to control a party of three heroes that each have differing attributes, a story-based campaign that can be played with friends, survival elements, and randomly generated maps.
The game is forecasted to cost $4.99 and to not have any in-app purchases.
I know Jen Allen just reviewed Perils of Man: Chapter 1, but that was just the first chapter. I was able to sit down and learn quite a bit more about what’s planned for the iPad adventure game, and I have to say it’s looking pretty intriguing.
As was pretty obvious at the end of the first chapter, this story is far from over. In fact, it’s really just the beginning. Perils of Man will have a total of seven chapters before all is said and done, but unlike many other episodic games they won’t be released every few weeks. Instead, all of the chapters will be available at once for a flat fee of $4.99.
The glimpse I was given of the second chapter also revealed an interesting new gameplay mechanic (Spoiler Alert – you have been warned): risk. Long story short, you’ll be able to shift into a first-person perspective and see what objects in the world are inherently dangerous. Then do tuff to make these objects less of a threat, of course. Basically it’s a system that visually quantifies risk.
The remaining chapters of Perils of Man should be available in early April for a grand total of $4.99.
Granted it’s only been a day, but I’ve already found myself surprised. On the surface Ninja Pizza Girl seems like it might end up being a fairly typical endless runner, but in reality it’s something altogether different.
There’s no “endlessness” to it, but rather a series of 24 levels with branching paths and secret areas. What really stuck out to me, though, is Disparity Games’ different approach to a health bar. Rather than taking damage, Gemma (the main character) will lose some of her self esteem as rival ninjas push her down and laugh at her. Seriously, they actually do that. The more Gemma’s feelings get hurt, the more washed-out the screen will start to look, and if she gets too upset she’ll simply give up.
There’s still a lot of work to be done on Ninja Pizza Girl when it eventually releases at the end of the year – with separate iPhone (estimated at $2.99) and iPad (estimated at $4.99) versions available – but what’s there is looking pretty good. If nothing else, it’s certainly refreshing to see a game that’s willing to explore less typical themes and take a new approach to player “health.”

Posted January 31st, 2014 by Arron Hirst Our Rating: :: MUTATIONS ABOUND
Gene's use of physical mutation to control a player's abilities is a refreshing touch, while its throw-back visual art-style will likely see the average platformer fan satisfied, but the way in which mutations are implemented might become irritating to some.

When Jen Allen reviewed book collection management app BookBuddy Pro a couple of years ago, the overall sentiment was that it’s a generally helpful app that could’ve used a few more features. Since that time the folks over at Kimico have been steadily adding to it, resulting in a current version (6.1.2) that addresses the lack of features.
The new BookBuddy Pro now sports a barcode scanner for easy cataloging, improved functions for labeling and finding books in a collection, cloud backups, easy sharing of favorites or entire chunks of a collection, better sorting and organization options, and more. So essentially all of the things we wished were in the app are now in the app.
You can download the latest BookBuddy Pro from the App Store for $4.99, or if you’d rather try before you buy there’s also the free version of Book Buddy that comes with a 50 book limit.
