Corel Launches Video Editing App Pinnacle Studio for iPhone, Updates iPad Version for iOS 7

Posted by on April 17th, 2014
iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

Corel Inc. has launched its premium video editing app, Pinnacle Studio for iPhone.

The app allows one to access all the media on one’s iPhone, and to start creative projects. Also, more media can be captured via the app itself, and projects can be transferred between the iPhone and the iPad via AirDrop. Storyboarding has also been made easy and seamless.

Pinnacle product development chief Michel Yavercovski promises users won’t have to settle for pared-down functionality on mobile devices. “Pinnacle Studio is the ideal app for anyone looking for true video editing power on their iPhone,” he says. “Unlike other mobile video editing apps, Pinnacle Studio doesn’t make you sacrifice features and control just because you’re editing on your iPhone. For the first time, you can enjoy sophisticated anywhere, anytime movie-making capabilities, right in your pocket.”

Additionally, Corel has updated the iPad version of the app, rebuilding it for iOS 7 and offering a redesigned UI and 64-bit power processing.

The new Pinnacle Studio for iPhone app is available on the App Store for $9.99.


IGG Software, makers of mobile money management app iBank for iPad, has updated the app with some new features. Now users can search transactions by a specific account or globally, use new management categories, and enjoy auto-fill functionality.

To mark the update, iBank is going on sale for a limited time. From now through Thursday, April 10, you can grab it from the App Store for 50% off ($9.99).

Space Hulk is adventure enough by itself (at least according to our review), but the iPad game’s latest update includes a new expansion pack called Space Wolves – adding an entirely new campaign and other features to the original game.

Space Wolves includes the “Fangs of Fenris” campaign, which is made up of 3 completely new missions set in a “cool and chilly environment.” Along with the missions, Space Wolves also comes with 11 new unique terminators, brutal new weapons such as the Frost Axe and Wolf Claw, and new skills Murderous Lighting and Hurricane that come via a “Runepriest.” Additionally, the expansion includes new “chapter specific rules,” attempting to add an entirely new dimension to the game.

You can get this hit turn-based strategy game on the App Store for $9.99, and the Space Wolves expansion pack is going to run you an additional $4.99.

Knights of the Old Republic Update Inbound – Includes Improved Visuals, Updated Interface, and Goes Universal

Posted by on December 16th, 2013
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

GIVEAWAY: We’ve got four copies of KOTOR to give away! Share/retweet this post on Twitter to be eligible to win. We will send out codes to the winners on Wednesday.

Heads-up, Jedi masters! It’s just been confirmed that Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is getting a very substantial update. How substantial, you ask?

First and foremost, it’s going Universal. So if you don’t have an iPad and have been using anything including a 5th Gen iPod Touch or an iPhone 4S and above, good news! The interface is also being tweaked so that the text will display better on smaller devices, and it’s even going to support widescreen formats for the iPhone 5 and 5s! In addition, many of the graphical elements such as lighting and shadows are being dressed up for devices using the new A7 processor (iPad Air, Retina Mini, iPhone 5s). There have also been rumblings of MFi controller support, although it’s still considered to be in the experimental stages.

So when is all this going to be available? Really, really soon. Like this week soon. If the stars align, the update will go live this Thursday, December 19.

I think it’s safe to assume that most iOS strategy gamers rather enjoyed XCOM: Enemy Unknown when it was released back in June. I know we certainly did. But the struggle for Earth’s survival isn’t over just yet, and now even more operatives can join in the fight.

XCOM: Enemy Unknown has, at long last, received its much-touted multiplayer update. Now you can create your own custom squad made up of humans, aliens, or a mix of both, then take on friends and strangers alike in asynchronous multiplayer through Game Center. Don’t already have the game on your iOS device? Well it’s also on sale for $9.99 (down from $19.99), so this is about as good an opportunity as you’re going to get!

Shakespeare is pretty much synonymous with literary masterpieces these days, which is great. However, in all honesty one can only read the same plays so many times before the need for something “different” sets in. Hence WordPlay’s Shakespeare series, which has just released Macbeth.

What makes this version different than the rest? It’s all in the juxtaposition of text and video. See, what WordPlay does is give readers the ability to read the eBook’s text while simultaneously watching a video of the play. In this case it’s the complete play, managed by a Juilliard director and sitting right next to the words you’ll be reading. Neat, huh?

“Half the Page is a Stage” indeed!
