TOKYO (Tom Bluewater) – When someone in your neighborhood goes missing, it is important to organize a search party as quickly as possible. And you must run a search party operation as efficiently as possible. You don’t want to send multiple groups to the same location.
Search Party Volunteer is a mobile app for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch that works side by side with its desktop application counterpart called Search Party Command Center. Use this app to join a search party so that search party organizer can run their operation efficiently. Submit your location data to them so that they know where you have searched. Continue reading
TOKYO (Tom Bluewater) – September of 2018 was a horrible month. It was entirely cloudy almost every day. It rained a lot. We are now in October. So far, we’ve been having pleasant days. Anyway, if you want to use your iOS device as a direction navigator, try Driving Routes. Yup, that’s my next submission to Apple‘s App Store.
Driving Routes is a mobile app for iPhone and iPad that lets you use your iOS device as a GPS navigator on the road. When you select a destination on the road, the app will draw a route to it on the map. If you make the Sign instructions in-app purchase, the app will display a green sign at the bottom showing you the direction and remaining distance to the next section as you drive. Furthermore, if you make the Voice instructions in-app purchase, the app will give you a route direction near each section in voice (text-to-speech). Continue reading
TOKYO (Tom Bluewater) – It rains quite a bit in September. We hardly see the sun this month. Anyway, I have one iOS app to introduce before this month ends. A new iOS app that I submitted to App Store a few minutes ago is called Ride Watch.
When you take a cab ride, you never know that the driver will take the shortest route. Who knows where a stranger will take you if you fall into sleep after a long night of parting? Ride Watch lets you monitor your ride, recording GPS positions. With an in-app purchase, Ride Watch will send you a local notification when your ride deviates from an expected route. The app will even let you simulate your ride in the past. Continue reading
TOKYO (Tom Bluewater) – Finally, the summer is over in the area where I live. That’s good. I hate to sweat. If it’s not good, that’s because it rains quite a bit. Anyway, I’m ready to introduce a new iOS app that I have been working on. It’s an iOS version of the desktop application that I released about 10 days ago. It’s called Family Track Central. Yeah, it’s the same name.
Family Track Central is an iOS version of an existing desktop application that helps you keep track of geographic locations of your family members in real time through their iOS devices. These days, most high school students own smartphones. When your child doesn’t come home before their curfew, wouldn’t you want to know where they are right now? Or wait for 72 hours so that the police can handle it as a missing person case and get a warrant by court from the cellular company? Wouldn’t it be nice if you get a local notification from your Mac when your family member approaches an area they are not supposed to go to? That’s what Family Track Central is about. It will let you pinpoint geographic positions of your family members on the map so that you can quickly find out where they are. Continue reading
TOKYO (Tom Bluewater) – Earlier, I announced that I was releasing two applications at the same time. The other app to introduce is called Family Track Me.
Family Track Me helps your family keep track of your geographic locations. They must use Family Track Central (for macOS and iOS) to see your current location on the map in real time. Continue reading
