Level Reacts to iOS Security Vulnerability, Requires Users to Update OS to Continue Using Level Money

Posted by Tre Lawrence on February 27th, 2014

Level Money is taking proactive steps to ensure that its users are as secure as possible by requiring that they update to iOS version 7.0.6, which contains Apple's new security patch. According to Level Money's blog it was the responsible thing to do, even though it wasn't responsible for the breach.

"Even though this is not a vulnerably in the Level system, we knew we had to do everything in our power prevent exposure of the sensitive information our members trust us with. Last night, we implemented a requirement that Level members update to iOS version 7.0.6 in order to continue using the app. Version 7.0.5 is inherently insecure, and data on that iOS version cannot be protected. Members that update to the latest version should be able to resume use of Level Money without any further interruption. However, we know we are far from the only app entrusted with sensitive information, which is why we are calling on all other app developers — particularly those handling banking and payment information —to implement similar measures. Apps handling sensitive information have a responsibility to respond quickly to this type of exposure. Users must be required to update their iOS version if we are to uphold our promise to protect the information which we are entrusted with."

Level Money is available for free on the App Store

Level Money Lets You Track Your Spending and Funds in Real Time

Level Money is a finance app, sure, but it's a bit different than most. Rather than requiring users to add up their expenses manually and cross-reference with their bank statements, it uses the Intuit platform to securely and reliably link to your checking, savings, and credit cards.

You don't even have to plug in what you spend or categorize it. Since Level Money syncs up with your bank accounts every purchase, transfer, and payment will automatically be accounted for and displayed within the app. I think this is about as easy and painless as budgeting and money management is probably going to get!

Rocket Boy 2D Scrolls Onto The App Store, Borrows RPG-Style Leveling Tricks

Posted by Ben Harvell on July 19th, 2010
iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

The team over at PowPowGames has announced the release of its first iPhone game, Rocket Boy 2D. The colorful side-scroller offers over 35 guns and more than 70 items to collect and use across three worlds. What sets Rocket Boy 2D apart from other titles of this type, however, is its RPG-esque leveling system which calculates stats and damage leading to unlockable content and powerups.

As the enemies, which range from aliens to zombies, get tougher the leveling up process allows you to equip more powerful weapons and skills in order to remain competitive. Rather than just blindly moving to the next available gun, users can choose which areas they wish to enhance in order to defeat the more challenging levels later in the game.

The control system also sounds interesting, using a mixture of the accelerometer for moving the character and touch input to aim and fire a weapon. As you would expect from the name of the game, the hero is also the proud owner of a jetpack which is controlled by the user’s thumb.

From what we’ve seen so far, Rocket Boy 2D looks like a fun arcade game with some interesting takes on the genre and, should the control system work as fluidly as promised, will likely become an addictive time waster for your iPhone or iPod touch.

Multi Measures HD Review

There are lots of measurement and "all in one" apps for the iPhone and iPad. Clearly, the concept makes a lot of sense for a lot of people. AppBox Pro, for instance, includes tons of different useful activities for the iPhone/iPad user. Multi Measures HD, by SkyPaw, includes a bunch of useful measurement tools for the iPad user in a beautifully designed package.

[caption id="attachment_39220" align="alignright" width="225" caption="Multi Measures HD\'s Select Screen"]

[/caption]So What's Included?
Multi Measures HD includes six different measurement tools, including a ruler, protractor, seismometer, plumb bob, spirit level, and surface level. Each tool is beautifully designed and, from what I can tell, well calibrated. I wonder, however, whether tools like the seismometer are truly necessary for the common user. Regardless, it's well implemented and fun to play around with. The ruler includes some useful tools as well, like instructions for measuring large objects and the option to use various different units. The sensitivity of several of the tools can be tweaked as well.

A Bargain at 99 Cents
For an inexpensive application, Multi Measures HD is beautifully designed. It seems almost as if it were designed by Tapbots, the creator of popular applications like Convertbot. The selection screen is very reminiscent of ConvertBot's, and that's a compliment considering how meticulous Tapbots is in creating beautiful apps. Multi Measures HD is, obviously, a simple application. Yet at 99 cents, it's a bargain. If you're in the market for a simple and useful measurement toolkit, look no further than Multi Measures HD.

Firemint announces free update to Flight Control for iPhone

Our rating: starstarstarstarstar :: HIGHLY RECOMMENDED :: Read Review »

Firemint has launched an update to its popular Flight Control game for iPhone. The update, available now, includes a new map, updated graphics, safe fast-forward plus new sound and music settings.

Flight Control is a highly addictive strategy game in which users take control of a selection of airstrips and must guide different planes and helicopters to their destination. While things start off easy, you’re quickly swamped by jets and light aircraft that need to be designated a runway before they crash into others.

First things first, the new map. Windy Airfield brings a new dimension to the already frantic action with runways opening and closing at timed intervals. Users will need to keep an eye on a windsock in the middle of the level that moves around to denote a change in wind direction. The direction of the wind affects which runways are open. Aircraft already on approach will still land but you’ll have to find an alternate runway for the rest.

So far, the new map is generating excitement among players with many uploading their score to the online leader board. A Google map is currently displaying where the high scores are coming from around the world. Check it out here

Flight Control’s graphics also receive a boost in this update with much brighter colors to help you spot those incoming planes quickly.

Another big addition to Flight Control is the safe fast-forward option that was launched in Flight Control HD for iPad. There are now three speed settings from “Off” through “Locked Fast Forward”. “Safe Fast Forward” speeds up the game but alerts players when a collision is imminent and slows the game back down to normal speed so you can avert disaster. Fast forward is sometimes required during the game to speed up the action and get on to higher scores but, use it carefully or you could cause an aeronautical pile up.

As far as settings go, Flight Control will now remember a user’s sound and music settings which can be altered in the app’s Pause Menu so you don’t have to change them each time you play the game.

As an added bonus to celebrate the update, Firemint has also released a free Flight Control wallpaper for iPhone users which can be downloaded from the Firemint site here.

iPad and desktop wallpaper is also available.

This is a great update from Firemint and we look forward to many more soon as well as tweaks to the iPad app. Check it out today by heading to the updates section of the App Store via your iPhone or in iTunes and, if you haven’t downloaded the game already, do it now!
