Smart Recorder 2.1 Released for the iPad and iPhone

Smart Recorder 2.1 Released for the iPad and iPhone

Version 2.1 of Smart Recorder iPhone/iPad Productivity App Released Featuring iPad Support, Facebook/Twitter Posting and Improved Box. net Support

Rockville, Maryland (PRWEB) June 8, 2010

iPad productivity applications continue growing in popularity as more businesses and consumers leverage the mobile platform to manage day-to-day tasks. Roe Mobile Development’s (RMD) updated version of Smart Recorder features added functionality designed to meet business and personal users’ recording and note taking needs. Smart Recorder can be used for recording and taking notes at business meetings, lectures, or classes. The new version supports the iPad’s larger screen and file sharing capabilities. The ability to post recordings to Facebook or Twitter has also been added. Finally, the performance of the Box. net export and import functionality has been substantially improved.

“Smart Recorder is now the ultimate note taking app for the iPad. It allows you to make an audio recording while simultaneously typing textual notes. The textual notes get time stamps which can be used to mark important points in a recording. Unlike other note taking apps, Smart Recorder allows sessions to be archived or transferred to another device through the Box. net service,” remarks Ken Roe, CEO of RMD.

The Smart Recorder robust feature set includes:
Time-based tags allow direct access to important portions of a recording. Tapping the “Add Tag” button during recording sets a tag at that time position. Tapping the tag during playback jumps to the position of the tag. Comments can be typed in with each tag.
Direct access to the iPhone camera allows taking photographs while recording to associate visuals with the recording. The photographs are time-stamped to their position in the recording.

Auto Pause suspends recording when there is no sound. Recording starts again when talking resumes, eliminating long pauses - perfect for conference room meetings.

Multi-speed playback allows quick skimming or careful listening to critical portions of a recording.

Forward and Back buttons skip or repeat a user selectable number of seconds in the recording.
Slider allows you to quickly navigate to any part of a long recording.

Direct access to a recording time position starts playback at that point in the recording.

Export permits setting a suitable file format and compression rate for saving and distribution.
Sessions with all their photos and text tags can be archived or transferred to another device through Box. net.

Audio recordings can be shared on either Facebook or Twitter.

Smart Recorder features a rich set of user-definable settings to suit every individual:
Set the number of seconds the Forward and Back buttons move within the recording.

Select a sampling (compression) rate anywhere between 8000-44,100Hz. A lower rate saves disk space while a higher rate gives better audio quality.

Adjust the noise (or quietness) threshold at which auto pause activates.

Enable one channel (mono) or two channel (stereo, with a suitable microphone) recording for basic or richer recordings.

Smart Recorder 2.1 is available from the iTunes App Store. Additional information is available at Roe Mobile Development (http://www. roemobiledevelopment. com (http://www. roemobiledevelopment. com)) and on the Smart Recorder Facebook group.

Indian Autorickshaw Challenge 2007 Dates Announced: An Amazing Race for the Clinically Insane Became Nasty

Indian Autorickshaw Challenge 2007 Dates Announced: An Amazing Race for the Clinically Insane Became Nasty

The Indian Autorickshaw Challenge is one of the strangest, most wild events the amateur adventurer will ever experience. In 2007 hundreds of amateur adventurers will get to experience the cities and countryside of India like never before. Check http://www. indianarc. com for more details.

Chennai, India (PRWEB) December 19, 2006

On August the 21st of 2006, one of the worlds strangest races began in Chennai (still better known to Europeans as Madras) and headed for Kanniyakumari, a city over 1,000 miles away on the southern tip of the continent. This race, organised by the infamous Adventure Rally Association of Budapest, who, not content to have driven through southern Europe to the deserts of North Western Africa in Ladas and Trabants, invited all participant to travel on the ubiquitous Autorickshaw. Dubbed 'An Amazing Race for the Clinically Insane' the participants enjoyed not only some of the most beautiful sights in all of India, but also the challenge of obstacles ranging from monsoons through crowds to unpredictable roads, all on India's most iconic mode of transport, the Auto Rickshaw.

The 2006 event proved to be so popular with amateur adventurers from all over the world that the organisers this year are doubling the entire event in its scope and its excitement. In 2007 two new rallies will be organised, giving adventurers the chance to choose their own level of endurance, and with double the participants, there will be well over double the partying done as well. After last years coverage of the event by publications as diverse as The Times, FHM, BBC, Overdrive Magazine and many more, excitement is really building for the 2007 rallies.

As well as competing for the coveted title of Autorickshaw Rally World Champion, the amateur adventurers will all be helping to promote vital local charities in their fight against child abuse and the exploitation of child labour. 

The Autorickshaw the participants will be using to pursue both these worthy goals are efficiently adapted motorcycles fit for three people, travelling light. Their ease of use, economy, and extreme ease of maintenance and repair has made them the number one workhorse from Bangladesh to Pakistan. Capable of 55km/h unloaded and with a following wind, the participants are likely to achieve a statelier cruise of 35km/h dependent on road conditions. Weighing only 600 kilograms, Autorickshaws are exhilarating to drive, convenient to refuel, and reparable at just about every village and settlement on the entire sub-continent. Whilst the adventurers may want to test both themselves and their vehicles to the limit, the organisers drew the line at three people to a vehicle for safety. 

The Indian Autorickshaw Challenge is one of the strangest, most wild events the amateur adventurer will ever experience. In 2007 hundreds of amateur adventurers will get to experience the cities and countryside of India like never before. Applications are now open for the 2007 event, Check http://www. indianarc. com (http://www. indianarc. com) for more details.
