Casino gaming on iPhone

iPhone is a great device to play games. If you played casino games or any other game for that matter on your iPhone, you know what I am talking about. There aren’t many smartphones out there that can match up to iPhone’s retina display, fast processor, great graphics and of course the one hand use. We have played casino games for years and these are (we think) the three best casino apps.

Jackpot City Casino app

Jackpot City Casino app has to rank among the very best in casino apps for all platforms. This app offers some of the greatest selection of common and popular apps and not so familiar apps as well. It’s these rare games that make Jackpot City app stand out. Scratch cards are one such game, that just cannot be found anywhere else. It’s a simple and quick game that doesn’t require skill as it is based on pure luck. The Jackpot City has a great support as well and it is well regarded in the gaming industry. Jackpot City now offers $500 bonus.

Platinum Play app

Platinum Play app is another very popular casino app for all platforms. Getting this app will get you the usual games like Video Poker, Blackjack, Roulette, Keno, Baccarat, and of course the Slots. All games are desecrate and Platinum offers some of the best security protection around as well as solid technical support as well. We have placed it as number 2 because of their fairly low welcome bonus of just $50.

Royal Vegas app

Royal Vegas app

Royal Vegas app gives you the biggest welcome bonus around. You can start off with $1200 up front money. Royal also makes some of the best promotions and loyalty rewards as well. Points you earn in Silver level (and higher) can be converted into real cash. At this level you also get exclusive tournaments. The real fun begins at the Gold level though. You need to have 10,000 loyalty points to get $2,500 bonus and access to the Gold member perks.

If playing games on your iPhone does’t appeal to you, there is always online gaming, that can be played on just about any device so long as it is connected to the internet. Some of the best include http://www.williamhillpoker.com/, Jackpot City, Party casino, Gaming Club and Bet365.

PetziConnect Is A Wireless Camera & Treat Disher For Dog Owners To Remotely Pet Fido

PetziConnect

Connected gizmos for dogs are having a moment, thanks to the likes of FitBark and other canine activity trackers. But here’s a connected gadget designed for dog owners to interact with their pet, rather than keep tabs on its health. Indeed, overuse of the PetziConnect’s treat dispenser feature may require some kind of health monitoring tech so push the treat button with caution.

Fortunately PetizConnect has other functions, that do not rely on treats to make pet and pet owner happy. Specifically it includes a wireless HD camera and a microphone so that pet owners can remotely summon Fido from his afternoon snooze and then watch as he cocks his head quizzically, wondering why his master’s voice is coming out of a box plugged in the wall.

As well as letting pet owners remotely view and coo at their dogs, and reward interest in a disembodied voice with the occasional tangible treat – dispensed via a button in the Android or iOS app or via a web client – the PetziConnect lets them take photos and record video. Which does, incidentally, beg the question how secure are Petzila’s systems – since once the device is up and running you will have a wireless, Internet-connected eye peeking into your home. Still, it’s designed to be plugged in at dog height so its view of any larger home occupants is probably going to be pretty partial. (Uhh, unless they happen to be rolling around on the floor nearby…)

Petzila was seeking $30,000 via Indiegogo to get the first batch of its connected dog-treating gizmo manufactured but has already passed that goal, with 40 days still left to run on its crowdfunding campaign. PetziConnects – which it says are rugged enough to deal with being mauled by a frenzied Fido hoping to get more treats/liberate its owner from inside the box – are due to ship to backers in December. The current lowest price-tag for crowdbackers wanting to bag a device is $99.

Update: Here’s what a Petzila spokesman had to say on the security point: “PetziConnect is built upon a 128-/256-bit encrypted, proprietary transport layer that blanket secures our three Petzila modules – Portal (mobile or web), Cloud, PetziConnect. In layman’s terms, we built the system bottoms-up to be end-to-end bullet proof secure.”

LinkedIn Kicks Off Its Pulse Integration

Icon_Pulse

For the world’s largest professional network, content is king. No surprise, then, that LinkedIn has fully integrated social newsreader app Pulse into its mobile and Web properties.

That means that after downloading and opening Pulse for iOS or Android, users will see article recommendations based on the subject categories and people they follow on LinkedIn and – if they used the app previously – on Pulse as well. Users will be prompted to sync their LinkedIn profiles with their Pulse accounts after downloading.

Pulse’s integration also marks the replacement of LinkedIn Today, the company’s front door for delivering news and “Influencer” posts – penned content from high-profile members of the business and media world written specifically for LinkedIn. Pulse, too, will deliver the news from the desktop to LinkedIn visitors from within the LinkedIn site.

It’s another step in LinkedIn’s big push to provide a mix of original and outside content on its site, an effort to bolster the number and frequency of users returning to it on a regular basis. In the past, the company has been seen widely as a repository for resumes, visited sparingly by job-seekers.

linkedinpulse

With the $90 million acquisition of Pulse seven months ago, LinkedIn hopes to change that image. Along with a suite of redesigned mobile applications – like LinkedIn’s iPad and Android apps – the focus is more on the LinkedIn “stream” of content flowing down the center of a user’s page. Much like Facebook or other social networks, LinkedIn users have a wealth of material to click on as it moves through their feed. That means more interactions and, ultimately, more time spent on site.

Beyond that, LinkedIn has even moved into users’ email mobile apps with Intro, the company’s way of displaying LinkedIn bio information from people you receive emails from within the email itself. It’s a smart way for LinkedIn to break out of the silo of its own apps or website, while potentially drawing people to the company’s properties if they click on the info inside the email.

And with the new app integrations, users should push more items from Pulse back to LinkedIn by sharing it with their network. They can “Like” or comment on items they see in Pulse, activity which will sync with their LinkedIn accounts. When those actions show up on LinkedIn, it’s ultimately a net win for the network, keeping it healthy and flowing with fresh content.

The new apps are available today in the iTunes and Android app stores.

New Bluetooth Basketball Analyzes Your Shooting, Dribbling Skills

It’s called “madness” for a reason — the college basketball frenzy in March is enough to convince many that if they only had a better handle on the ball, or a higher arc, they, too could have made it to the Final Four.

InfoMotion Basketball

Now there’s a basketball for that.

An Ohio-based company called InfoMotion has created a high-tech, Bluetooth-equipped basketball that senses the player’s motions with the ball and, after analyzing the data, shares it wirelessly to a compatible iOS or Android smartphone app.

InfoMotion has kicked off a Kickstarter campaign today to raise money for the production of the ball.

Mike Crowley, InfoMotion’s CEO, says the app doesn’t just spit out data; it’s supposed to offer advanced diagnostics to help players improve their games. “Five years ago, when we started the company, we knew consumers needed data. But the next evolution, beyond just activity tracking, is, how do I get better?”

The sensors in the ball can measure the direction of the ball’s spin and how quick your release is after catching the ball. In terms of ball handling, the Bluetooth ball knows the efficiency of your left hand versus your right hand, and how hard you dribble with each — in a sense, how confident you are with the ball.

Using this data, the app will recognize patterns and offer suggestions to shoot with a higher arc, or use your legs, or change the trajectory of the ball.

While the ball can sense when it has hit backboard, rim or net, InfoMotion’s “hit-or-miss” technology is still in development, so right now the app won’t tell you how many shots you’ve made — only how many you’ve taken.

The app also has a multiplayer mode, in which you and up to three other friends can take turns shooting 10 shots at a time and compete. InfoMotion’s goal is to create a kind of virtual playground, in which ballplayers around the world can compare scores within the app.

InfoMotion_Basketball App

The sensor-laden basketball is made of indoor/outdoor synthetic leather, courtesy of Spalding. Despite the fact that the ball comes packed with an eight-hour battery, Crowley says it meets regulation weight and size. It’s Qi-compatible, so it can be charged wirelessly, and comes with a charging sleeve.

If you can already feel the synthetic leather pimples under your fingertips, here’s the part where you might get a little, um, deflated: InfoMotion doesn’t expect the ball to ship until the third quarter of this year. And it will retail for a whopping $295. That almost makes these basketball sneakers look reasonable (not really).

To be fair, this new offering is much cheaper than InfoMotion’s first high-tech basketball, which launched in 2011 and ranged in price from $2,500 to $5,000. That ball was aimed mainly at high-level coaches and players.

But $295 is still a lot for a synthetic-leather basketball. Here’s a little free advice, kids: High-tech or not, just get out there and shoot — a lot!
