What’s Coming Up Next? – Tom Bluewater Introducing Late2Office for iOS

iOS Swift iPhone app Late2Office

TOKYO (Tom Bluewater) – The other software title that I’m releasing with Late2Office Central at the same time is called Late2Office.

Late2Office is an iOS app that lets you use your device to submit an arrival delay notice to your office manager through your phone. In order to submit a notice to them, you must have your QR code issued by them. And they need a desktop counterpart (Late2Office Central) to issue QR codes. You have nothing to set up for on your side. Just get your QR code, scan it and get your profile created. And you will be all set.

In order for your office manager to receive arrival delay notices from their employees, they must have a Linux-based remote web server and install a dozen files. If you want to see the overall picture of how this app works together with its desktop counterpart, please talk to your office manager or refer to the user guide that comes with the desktop application.   Continue reading

What’s Coming Up Next? – Tom Bluewater Introducing Late2Office Central for macOS

Mac application Search Party Command Center

TOKYO (Tom Bluewater) – It’s been a long time since I released any software title for the last time. I guess it’s been more than six months. Anyway, I have dual releases as usual. One is for macOS, and the other is its iOS counterpart. The first one that I submitted to Mac App Store a while ago is called Late2Office Central.

Many people commute daily. Anything can happen on your way to work. If somebody drops their mobile phone on the train track, your train can delay, and you may end up arriving at your office late. If your child wakes up with a fever in the morning, you may have to take him or her to a hospital. Again, you may end up arriving at your office late.

Late2Office Central offers a set of tools so that you can use your linux-based remote web server to receive notices from your employees who are running late on their way to work. It works with its iOS counterpart (Late2Office) side by side so that your employees can submit your late arrival notices to you from their mobile devices. Launch the application, and you will see the number of late office arrival notices for the current calendar day. Use this application to communicate with your remote server and its MySQL database so that you can create a list of employees who are allowed to submit a notice. Use this application to communicate with your remote server and find out why a particular employee is late and where he or she currently is.   Continue reading

What’s Coming Up Next? – Tom Bluewater Introducing Cut Extreme 2 for macOS

Mac application Cut Extreme 2

TOKYO (Tom Bluewater) – We still have 10 more days left this month. I guess I have time enough to release a new software title. In fact, I submitted a new desktop application to Mac App Store several minutes ago. This new software submission is called Cut Extreme 2.

If you want to make a rectangular cutout of a picture, you can do so with Preview. What if you want to make a cutout with a complex shape (like a heart, a tree, a star…) other than a rectangle?

Cut Extreme 2 is an upgrade version of an existing desktop application titled CutAround Extreme, which was first introduced in June, 2015. These applications let you make a cutout out of a picture with a shape made by a bezier curve. This application is now free. Shape collections are available as in-app purchases.

After selecting a picture to work with, select a shape with a drop-down menu so that you can make a cutout as to how you make one out of a picture. Then use the combo box right below to set a size of a cutout. Finally, click on the cut button (looking like scissors) to make a cutout. All cutouts are saved in the list to the right.   Continue reading

What’s Coming Up Next? – Tom Bluewater Introducing Super Patterns 2 for macOS

Mac application Super Patterns 2

TOKYO (Tom Bluewater) – I thought we were going to have a rainy day. I guess the Weather widget that comes with the System is not that reliable. And it has turned out to be a very beautiful November day, which is what we need before we enter a long, cold winter.

Anyway, I submitted a new desktop application to Mac App Store several minutes ago. There is no child app for iOS this time. It’s purely a desktop-only release. This new release is called Super Patterns 2.

Super Patterns 2 is a desktop application that lets you create a pattern with shapes, images, rich text strings. It is an updated version of a desktop application called MiPatterns. Create a pattern, which can be saved as an image file to your disk.   Continue reading

iOS Swift iPhone app Robo Desk

TOKYO (Tom Bluewater) – The other software title that I’m releasing with Robo Desk Central at the same time is called Robo Desk.

Robo Desk is an iOS app that lets you use your device as a front office receptionist so that you won’t have to allocate an extra employee to deal with visitors. Robot Desk asks very visitor for their name. Once the name is confirmed, they will be then asked who they are visiting with a list of employees. The app will also ask the visitor whether or not they have an appointment. Finally, it will transmit an office visit record to its host.   Continue reading
