Create a One-of-a-Kind Advertising Campaign: GoGekko, Creators of the iGab 3D Messenger App for iPhone, are Looking for American Collaboration Partners

Hamburg (PRWEB) April 30, 2013

The iGab 3D messenger app was launched in iTunes one month ago, placing a focus on communication with an international flare. During the development of the iGab app the team made a conscious effort to co-operate with partners from a multitude of countries.

Now that the app is in the marketing stage, the developers are now reaching out to the US companies, who are unusually open to unusual marketing concepts. While the iGab Crew is physically located in Hamburg Germany, we never want to lose sight of the fact that two of our three partners are Americans, stated co-founder Kathryn Hagedorn. Kathryn is proud to be a native New Yorker, while her partner Sabine Hutchison-Leidel is southern girl from Virginia.

At the time of its launch, iGab entered into cooperation with Mobile Software AG, creating the first Guest Gabber! We know that many American companies are at the forefront of cutting-edge marketing concepts and we would welcome the opportunity to find more companies that would like to be part of this new pioneering marketing trend, stated co-founder Sabine Hutchison-Leidel.

GoGekko is seeking partners from a broad scope of industries, not just from the communication sector. The iGab crew can incorporate any number of marketing ideas into the app; the team encourages out of the box thinking, design a Gabber whose message can be sent around the world. We are eager to preserve the balance between German engineering and American innovation, stated third co-founder Claudia Neumann.

The world will continue to be mobile, use this technology to be part of something new, while propelling company branding across the globe.

About GoGekko GbR:

GoGekko GbR was established in 2012 in Hamburg. iGab is GoGekko’s first iOS app, the app was created because GoGekko wanted a new fun way to send messages, without having to type messages. Emotion and using user’s own voices were both critical aspects to incorporate into the app. When sending text messages, one is only able to show emotion by using smileys or other 2D images and often messages are sent with computer voicesGoGekko wanted more.

Melbourne-Based Artists Looking To Create Apple-Product Perfume For Special Event

Melbourne-Based Artists Looking To Create Apple-Product Perfume For Special Event

Three Melbourne-based artists recently teamed up with Air Aroma (“a pioneering scent solutions company“), in an effort to create a fragrance based on the smell of new Apple products.

Everyone reading this will most likely be very familiar with this particular scent, which accompanies the unwrapping of any new Apple product. For a special event set to take place in Melbourne, three artists – Gavin Bell, Jarrah de Kuijer, and Simon McGlinn – are hoping to have this fragrance diffuse throughout the building. Not too long ago, they asked Air Aroma to develop the special perfume. The scent solutions company notes:

To replicate the smell a brand new unopened Apple was sent to our fragrance lab in France. From there, professional perfume makers used the scents they observed unboxing the new Apple computer to source fragrance samples. On completion the laptop was sent back to Australia, travelling nearly 50,000kms and returned to our clients together with scent of an Apple Macbook Pro.

The fragrance itself, sadly, isn’t going to be mass-produced – meaning you won’t be able to purchase a bottle for your significant other, next Valentine’s Day.

You can read about the process over at Air Aroma’s blog, and for more information on the three artists who requested the scent, check out their website.

Drafts Is A Must-Have For Anyone Looking To Quickly Get Thoughts Down On Their iPhone

Drafts Is A Must-Have For Anyone Looking To Quickly Get Thoughts Down On Their iPhone

Drafts by Agile Tortoise icon

Drafts ($ 0.99) by Agile Tortoise is a fast and easy way to jot down ideas with your iPhone.

It seems that Launch Center (our original review) has launched a new trend of “shortcut” apps, but who says this is a bad thing? Personally, I love Launch Center (it’s in my dock), and I appreciate any app that can make life easier. So as a writer, I really appreciated seeing an app like Drafts come out.

I was lucky enough to test out Drafts for the past week — it was originally scheduled to come out on Monday, April 9, but sometimes impatience can get the best of us. I have to say that this is one of the most versatile apps I’ve had the pleasure of using.

When you launch the app, you get a blank screen where you can start composing your draft. This draft can be anything – a thought, an idea, the beginning of a blog post, or even a [humorous] tweet. Just start writing; when you are writing, you will see a word and character count appear at the bottom of the compose screen. This is good for those that need to keep track of how word counts, but I found it useful for making sure that my thoughts are short enough for Twitter (with the 140 character limit).

If you have the amazing Terminology Ph app installed on your iPhone as well, then good news! Drafts has full integration with the app for looking up words and even getting replacements, all without having to cut and paste from one app to the other.

Additionally, Markdown is supported, which is wonderful. I write in Markdown every single day; knowing that I can also use Markdown in Drafts makes my life a whole lot easier. Oh, and TextExpander is supported too – a writer’s dream come true.

Once you’re done with a draft, you can take action with it. Actions allow you to tweet the draft through native iOS 5 Twitter support, Tweetbot, or the official Twitter app. Don’t want to tweet it? Then you can email the text or copy it to the device clipboard. If you’re like me, and use Markdown, you can even do a Markdown preview, send a Markdown email, or copy the Markdown syntax text to the clipboard and dump it into the writing app of your choice (here’s my fine comparison on some of my personal favorite writing apps).

Of course, since this is an app for drafts, you don’t even have to take action on any of your drafts, if you don’t want to (perfection takes time!). Tapping on the paper icon will allow you to see all of your available drafts. If any of them have had actions applied to them, you will be able to see what the action was and when it occurred. If you want to add a new one, just tap on the + button.

You can search through your drafts as well. Drafts features real-time search, so results will appear while you type, which is definitely nice to have. Having search may not be as useful when you only have a few drafts to go through, but as you start amassing a lot of writings, you will be glad it’s there.

While Drafts may not feature app settings, there is the option to change the appearance under the Action menu. The appearance settings include four different themes (I personally went with Grayscale, but there are the Default, Night, and Sepia themes as well) and 13 fonts (American Typewriter, Baskerville, Cochin, Courier, Georgia, Gill Sans, Helvetica Neueu, Hoefler Text, Marker Felt, Palatino, Times New Roman, Thonburi, and Verdana). The fonts can be adjusted to small, medium, or large size as well.

Simply put, Drafts is a new favorite app of mine and deserves a spot on my home screen. The interface is simple, elegant, and looks great. However, that isn’t to say that there isn’t any room for improvement. Currently, the app does not have landscape support, though the developers seem to have that in store for the future. There also isn’t any way to readjust the order that actions appear in – if you don’t want to tweet any of your drafts, you will have to always scroll down the list to get what you want.

Currently, Drafts is iPhone only, and lacks iCloud (or even Dropbox) sync. I hope it’s not too far when we will be able to see an iPad app with syncing capability so that all of our work is with us everywhere we go.

Despite these minor issues, I am loving Drafts. It serves as a great place to draft your witty tweets now, especially since Birdhouse seems to be defunct (no update since August 2010). It also doesn’t hurt that it has many more features besides housing your finely-crafted tweets.

Make sure to check out Drafts in the App Store for $ 0.99.
