Free iPhone App, PicIT24, aims to make sharing simple again with its once-a-day posting limit and unique visual diary capabilities
Instagram recently claimed the rights to sell your personal information to third parties. This has resulted in a plethora of people searching for alternative photo sharing services. Can PicIT24’s slick filtered environment fill this void?
Today’s Social Networks offer an unfiltered environment where users can post and share an unlimited amount of memories and thoughts to an infinite amount of connections. This mass creates a noise, which makes it hard to connect to those members you really care about. This often leaves us sorting through system-filtered posts to help us find those that are most meaningful. It is no wonder then, that despite social app time growing 76% from last year much of the sentiment after participating in social media was “overwhelmed”, “anxious” and “wasted time” according to the 2012 Social Report by Nielson.
PicIT24 was created to simplify sharing by increasing the quality of posted memories by limiting the number of posts members can share to only one photo and/or quote within a 24-hour period. The goal of the app is to make people think before posting by having them consider one question, “If I could only share one thing today, what would that be?”
“Essentially PiciT24 helps to solve how overloaded and disenchanted users are getting with social sharing by pushing the curation of content back to the users. Rather than having users share en masse and have the system use its algorithm to select what to share to their community, PiciT24 members are now in complete control of the one thing they want their followers to see that day,” says PicIT24 Founder, Fred Sachs.
“Too much choice leads to indecision, and so, paralyzed, we expose our followers to overwhelming amounts of poorly chosen content. In turn they struggle to keep up, understand and appreciate what we have to say. We believe a lack of content selectivity is counterproductive to your audience. To address these issues PicIT24 was created,” he adds.
On top of increasing the meaningfulness of posts, PicIT24 also allows for creation of groups to make it even easier to keep in touch with selections of followers. Allowing members to stay in touch with larger networks in shorter time frames.
In addition, the profile page allows for a unique content to time association, with every day representing an item of content. Members can also easily filter through posts by tapping on a location or filtering by calendar date.
PicIT24 is available now on the App Store for the iPhone and iPod Touch as a free download. Members can also login to the PicIT24 website to view and share memories athttp://www.picit24.com.

London, England (PRWEB) July 10, 2012
Bird game fanatics now have a unique way to engage with their favorite feathery friends with Bubble Grubble, a new app for iPhone and iPod touch which combines the use of birds, bubbles and game play physics into one jammed packed, addictive action-puzzle game.
Bubble Grubble offers hours of stunning graphics and tricky, challenging game play fit for all ages. The game asks users to help Mother Bird catch bugs by shooting them with bubbles and to use real game play physics, to tilt their device to float bubbles up to the hungry chicks.

Bubble Grubble offers two modes of play – easy and hard and provides hours of game play across varying scenes with over 80+ levels featuring oceans, mountains, warehouses and wherever else the bird family has flown to. For game fanatics, there is even a secret 81st level that is unlocked only to players who have successfully completed all levels of the game.
In addition to the stunning graphics optimized for the Retina display, the game offers five levels of game play in both Easy and Hard mode, as well as mandatory involvement of shooting, obstacle removing and tilting to win each level is sure to cater to action, strategy, puzzle and simulator gamers alike.
The Bubble Grubble App is available for free from the App Store on iPhone and iPod touch or at http://www.itunes.com/appstore. Additional levels are available for a one-time In-App Purchase of $0.99.

Revolutionary tablet app SudokuPDQ™ has taken a popular game enjoyed by hundreds of millions of people internationally and turned it into an ultra fast-paced, high-stakes, competitive game that can be played against multiple opponents in different locations. Newly launched and the first of its kind, SudokuPDQ transforms a solitary, global gaming phenomenon into an ultra-social, skill-based adrenaline rush for iPad and Android™ tablet users.
SudokuPDQ – the “PDQ” standing for “Pretty Darn Quick” – is a race against the clock to solve one square of a traditional 9×9 sudoku grid in the fastest time possible. Each game consists of five 20-second speed rounds, with a brand new, challenging puzzle presented for each round.
App creator and TV writer/producer Bill Biggar designed the game to feel at home in a casino environment. “I almost called the game ‘Su-doker,’ since SudokuPDQ is essentially a mash-up of sudoku and high-stakes poker.”
“We’ve created an environment for Sudoku enthusiasts to stoke their competitive fire,” Biggar said. “We find that people can’t put the game down because the competition sparks such fierce rivalries. Play it and you’ll see that it doesn’t get easier, you just get better.”
Yet Biggar says the game is not just for Sudoku players. “Some of the better players in our focus groups don’t consider themselves to be numbers people, and have never folded a newspaper in four to sit down and fill in an entire puzzle.”
SudokuPDQ brings people together to compete and play with players around the world. For those interested in an individual experience or who want to hone their skills, SudokuPDQ also includes a solo mode that tracks high scores and allows users to play against the clock.
SudokuPDQ™ is available now as a free app for iPad on the App Store, or for 10” or larger Android tablets on Google Play.
SudokuPDQ™, LLC is a trademark and patent pending social gaming company incorporated in the State of Kansas. It was created by award-winning former TV executive and syndicated newspaper game developer Bill Biggar. Its principals include a retired Fortune 500 Chairman and CEO; a former multinational oil executive; an entrepreneurial web-designer and online and mobile technology marketing executive; and a lawyer and former senior level Capitol Hill staffer with extensive relationships in the gaming industry.
