scrshot.io – Fast Screenshots!

scrshot.io is a web service and multi-platform app that makes it easier and much more simple to take screenshots and share them with everyone. Imagine dragging a box across your screen and instantly having a shareable URL to send to someone less than a second later! Here it is on Product Hunt!

scrshot is free and runs on Windows / Mac / Linux and can be downloaded at scrshot.io. It has a plethora of useful options that help you make it run just exactly how you like it. If you have the Auto-Upload switch checked than every time you snap a screenshot the image will be automatically uploaded to the server, providing you with a URL that you can share to someone publically (ex. https://scrshot.io/ZZ).

All non-encrypted images let you hotlink to them directly if you just need the image file. The encryption feature lets you secure your image so that only the people with the private key/password can ever see it.

For encrypting your images, we use randomly salted AES-256 with a key/password you provide. It’s encrypted before ever being uploaded so that when it’s on the server, no one can view it without that special key you provided. The encryption option also provides you with an instantly shareable URL as well (that reveals the key/password) so you can send it off privately.

Take Care of the Proper Paperwork

Take Care of the Paperwork is a relatively fast-paced tapping management game. I’ve been told it plays similar to Papers, Please. The idea is pretty simplistic as all you have to do is file the paperwork in their proper categories/bins.

 

 

 

 

As soon as you pull a file out, you’re tasked with certain things you need to do in order to file that paperwork properly. Sign it, stamp it, staple it, fill it out or just file it in the right cabinet. Seems pretty simple at first, until you start running out of time and need to file more than 100 papers in labelled bins.

This game is 100% free and has a little incentive for the ADMIN in-app purchase that isn’t required at all.

PS Vita VPK Editor [UPDATE 1.2]

Hey there folks, I decided to make a simple cross-platform application to help users modify their VPK files thematically. My VPK Editor was designed to help you change up the graphic assets of your VPK’s livearea/icon.

FEATURES:

  • Opens any VPK file designed for the PS Vita
  • Let’s you change the icon, the livearea icon, and the livearea background image
  • Automatically converts the images (from JPEG or PNG) to the correct bit-depth (8 bit) supported by the PS Vita
  • Mai Dump ZIP support

 
 
DOWNLOAD:

VPK Editor 1.2 for Windows (1878 downloads)

VPK Editor 1.2 for Mac (265 downloads)

VPK Editor 1.2 for Linux (305 downloads)

VPK Editor 1.2 for Linux 64 (393 downloads)

CHANGELOG:

— Version 1.2 —

  • Fixed squared window bug. (uses a widescreen friendly window size)
  • Added basic support for modifying the template XML

— Version 1.1 —

  • Added Mai Dump ZIP support. You can now change the graphics of VPK’s and Dumps!

If there’s enough interest, I’ll continue to work on adding more features to it (like editing the template.xml with your own text).

Dating Apps

logos

You’re probably asking yourself what I’m working on now after having released a lot of non-utility apps. I know you’re not asking yourself anything. I’m providing indirect exposition for this vague post that will (in the end) not even give you any detail about it.

Anyway, right now I’m working on a dating app. Yeah yeah, Tinder already exists, and PlentyOfFish is eating everything up. The problem with the dating apps of today is that they focus on increasing the number of people you match with, rather than trying to increase interaction with whoever you match. I’m going to take the opposite approach and see if I can create an intuitive way to engage people to talk to each other in a more meaningful way. Instead of dealing with swiping right or tapping like, you should base your judgment on how engaged the person is when in the conversation.

There are a couple different mechanics I’m going to be playing with to achieve this while sacrificing the old’ rapid-fire matchup scheme, which is just not long term. Maybe that’s what you’re looking for. In that case, this should definitely be a fun app to use. Stay tuned.

Chiclets – Multiplayer!

Wow, it’s been exactly a year since my last post. That is appalling, and I apologize. To make up for it i’ll be posting much more frequently from now on! On to my latest app:

Chiclets

Chiclets is a multiplayer game that tests your reflexes and compares your reaction time to anyone else.

Some things about my apps I just get so annoyed with, like it’s lack of any design path or usability, but my games frustrate me on a whole new level. This game in particular, i’m not even that good at. I tried. I really tried to be good at this, but the main mechanic rests on your ability to match the colors in front of your eyes with the colors in front of your thumbs/fingers.

UI

The idea of the game is to beat your opponent by getting the highest score in 30 seconds. Every color you tap correctly will reward you stacking points, while every time you mess up your stacked points get reset and you get punished with negative points. Doing the scoring in this way prevents users from spamming all colors trying to get lucky with high stacking scores. If you win against the CPU, it doesn’t really count for much as I programmed it to be fairly easy. If you win against a real player, a point gets added to your global wins which you can always see on your top left. If you lose, you get nothing.

Lose

When the game finishes you’ll be granted with a score card that shows you your score and your opponents/CPU score. Under that you’ll notice an attractive looking grid graphic. I created an algorithm that creates this grid based on the game you just played. It takes your unique game pattern and properly displays it analogously within 40 milliseconds. If you trace from the beginning of the pattern you’ll realize that a certain square is a different color than the assigned three colors of your current game. This “inverted” color scheme intuitively shows you where you left off out of the 500 squares in the game.

The multiplayer portion of the game relies strictly on a couple of VPS boxes I have set up to handle a bunch of players at a time (should stack nicely if more people play).

Anyway, that’s about it, for this game/app. Moving on to my next projects (a dating app, service updates ;) ).
