To support the launch of Marketplace, Oomph has launched a $10,000 tablet app contest on DesignCrowd, a creative 'crowdsourcing' website that specialises in design contests.  Sarina Quinlan, Product and Marketing Manager at Oomph Marketplace said, "The Oomph Marketplace gives designers access to customers and opportunity to earn income from selling their designs. Like Themeforest is to Wordpress templates, designers can sell their template designs on Oomph. DesignCrowd’s global platform will generate templates and awareness for Marketplace amongst international designers.” Alec Lynch, CEO and co-founder of DesignCrowd said, "We’re very pleased that Oomph has turned to crowdsourcing and DesignCrowd to generate new creative ideas for its marketplace.  We now have over 100,000 designers from around the world who have already started submitting dozens of ideas." The $10,000 competition comprises of four mini contests each offering a $2,500 prize. The four contests focus on four popular app genres that target: organisers of arts and music festivals; industry conferences; travel agencies marketing holiday destinations; branded magazine creators; and retailers who want to create an interactive rich media content experience for buyers.  The contest closes at the end of January and prize winners will be announced in February with the winning designs in each category to be available for sale on Oomph Marketplace. Oomph will be launching new functionality in the coming weeks so app authors can sell templates in the store. View the new Oomph Marketplace here: https://marketplace.oomphhq.com/welcome.

A musician who mostly chose to avoid the limelight and let his music speak for itself with the exception of one legendary film. In July, 1984, Prince gifted the world a glimpse into the inner-workings of his mind through the film Purple Rain - a colourful musical part-autobiography, part-fantasy and completely genius. Taking the movie world by storm in the same way his music did, the film went on to win an Academy Award for ‘Best Original Song Score’. In a fitting tribute to the music legend, QT Sydney, constructed from half of the State Theatre Building where Prince last performed in Australia, will host an exclusive screening of Purple Rain in the QT Screening Room on Friday 29th April at 7.30pm. Purple Rain casts Prince as “The Kid,” a wildly talented, romantic, eccentric, and neurotic musician. Set in his home town of Minneapolis with cameos from musicians he was collaborating with at the time including the likes of Morris Day, Lisa Coleman, Wendy Melvoin, Apollonia and Kotero. Additionally, QT Sydney will be hosting a tribute to Prince in the relaxed sophistication of the 60-seat Gilt Lounge on level 2 of the historic Gowings building. Here some of Sydney’s finest mixologists call upon a vast array of liquors to hand-craft a Purple Rain inspired cocktail featuring Star of Bombay Gin, Luxardo Maraschino, Crème de Violette, Prosecco, fresh lemon and a lemon twist whilst DJ Ricky Albert, Prince’s support act DJ on his 2003 Australian Musicology Tour, will be playing some of his biggest hits and party tunes until late. The vivid interior of Gilt Lounge, by acclaimed designer Nic Graham, uses bespoke furniture and digital art by Daniel Boyd to deliver a distinctive, retro-futuristic ambience. Unique glimpses of the city are visible through the windows as music infuses, rather than dominates, the space for a laidback, loungey vibe. Tickets to the exclusive screening of Purple Rain include: ·         A screening of Purple Rain in the private QT Screening Room at QT Sydney ·         A pre-screening glass of G.H Mumm champagne ·         Popcorn  & Choc Top ·         A post-screening ‘Purple Rain’ cocktail in QT Sydney’s Gilt Lounge Tickets to the exclusive tribute screening are $65 and will be on sale from Tuesday 27th April at 12 Noon. Tickets can be purchased and Gilt Lounge reservations made by calling QT Sydney on (02) 8262 0062). -ENDS- A CINEMA TRIBUTE FIT FOR A PRINCE 2016-04-22T08:31:49Z a-cinema-tribute-fit-for-a-prince Prince, one of the true music legends of our time, best known for his extraordinary musical talent, creativity and flare.

MEDIAHUB CHOOSES MEDIAWARE AND MAGNA SYSTEMS FOR CHANNEL PLAYOUT AND AD INSERTION SOLUTION 2016-04-19T17:12:58Z mediahub-chooses-mediaware-and-magna-systems-for-channel-playout-and-ad-insertion-solution MediaHub Australia has chosen InStream from General Dynamics Mediaware, coupled with Enensys IP Guard supplied by Magna Systems, as its end-to-end, multi-channel linear TV channel ad insertion solution for the regionalisation of GO! and 9Life channels.MediaHub head of operations, Scott Jolly explained, “We were looking for a sophisticated playout solution that would significantly reduce our total cost of ownership as we transition to becoming an all-IP facility. After discussions with Magna Systems and InStream demonstrations from the Mediaware team, we decided on InStream Splice with Mediaware’s time delay, logo insertion and audio normalisation software as it met our requirements perfectly. The end-to-end InStream software suite operating on our blade servers, combined with Enensys seamless IP switchers for redundancy, will save us a considerable amount of time and money moving forward.” InStream Splice is an end-to-end, multi-channel linear TV channel ad insertion and play-out software application for digital television, cable, satellite and IP networks. It inserts ads, bugs and logos, acts as a live video switcher and server, and supports emergency alert systems. To ensure the GO! and 9Live audiences receive the seamless, glitch-free viewing experience they demand, InStream Splice inserts content directly into live transport streams without the need to decode back to baseband. Splicing is clean, frame accurate, controlled and synchronised with MediaHub’s existing automation system. Enensys’ IPGuard provides automatic 1+1 redundancy of IP networks, or network appliances that output IP streams such as encoders, multiplexers and DVB-T2 gateways, providing 100% protection of the solution in case of power outage. IPGuard is composed of two products - IPGuard E2: 1+1 Smart IP switch for data port redundancy and IPGuard S5: Seamless IP switch for 1+1 stream redundancy. Ian Fellows, director of marketing at Magna Systems commented, “MediaHub are committed to transitioning to an all-IP infrastructure and InStream from Mediaware satisfied all of the requirements for cost efficient ad insertion into multiple WIN regional markets. WIN is conducting an exhaustive technology refresh that includes IP-based Cisco encoders so the combination of InStream Splice and seamless IP switching from Enensys was an ideal fit.” Fellows continued, “Scott and his team immediately saw the value in the InStream Splice solution for WIN. With a single InStream Server system in 1+1 configuration system licenced for the 22 individual services, InStream can handle 32 markets and the complexity of regional time zones, simply and seamlessly.” Scott Jolly concluded, “Magna Systems and Mediaware have provided us with a cost-effective, efficient, frame accurate ad insertion solution which now allows us to overlay any content into the transport stream without reducing the quality of the stream itself. Use of off the shelf hardware and transportable Mediaware licences will keep costs down and we have been impressed with how the Magna Systems and Mediaware team have ensured the solution satisfies MediaHub’s requirements.” BlockZ – The Most Addictive Puzzle Game on the Play Store 2016-04-19T04:30:07Z blockz-the-most-addictive-puzzle-game-on-the-play-store Once in a while there comes along a game that rises above the rest to achieve cult status amongst gamers for its simple graphics, solid game engine and truly addictive game play.  BlockZ is a fast-paced action puzzle game that relies on quick reaction times and crazy speed in shape recognition in order to achieve the highest possible score. Blocks are matched on screen with a few simple taps and swipe motion in order to lock the matching blocks into place and move on to the next one. Each shape-recognition takes place under a strict time limit, and requires a number of different problem solving skills in order to get a truly high score.  One a player has recognised the shape needed at the bottom of the screen, they must match up that shape using the shapes at the top of the screen. Tapping the screen rotates the shape options available until a matching shape is selected. The player must then swipe down the screen in order to lock the shape into place into the bottom block, completing that shape and earning a point before moving onto the next shape in the never-ending world of BlockZ! Quick reactions times are needed in order to quickly tap on screen in order to rotate through the different available shapes and stop of the correct on in order to lock it into place in the block at the bottom of the screen. Just a single tap too many will force a player into tapping through the rest of the shape rotation in order to select the correct one again. Shape recognition is needed in order to quickly see the shape required by the block at the bottom of the screen, as well as match the shape at the top of the screen in order to lock it into place. Be careful though, as although a player may match up a shape to another, the colour may be different and will make it impossible to complete the block in order to progress. Deep concentration is needed in order to focus on the particular task at hand in order to progress in the game. BlockZ loves to put players off by introducing ghost shapes into the mix, allowing players to be distracted at any given moment. Nerve is needed in order to keep going past the highest score in order to achieve global leaderboard status. BlockZ features full Google Play Games integration in order to share new high scores and see how a player’s friends and family are shaping up compared to them. Leader boards and achievements give BlockZ great replay value, and with a dedicated like, share and invite option for Facebook, makes competing with friends easier than ever. BlockZ also ships with an additional 20 language options, a simple and quick tutorial mode, as well as a number of in-app purchases allow BlockZ a level of depth many other pick-up and play arcade games lack. BlockZ is available now for free on the Google Play Store for the latest devices on the Android platform. The Mascoteers’ best new app Enclose released in the Apple Store 2016-04-17T05:51:52Z the-mascoteers-best-new-app-enclose-released-in-the-apple-store The Mascoteers have created a winning formula for success, carving out a niche in the development of repetitive, point-based games that translate well to hand-held devices and appeal to a range of people going about their day-to-day activities and trying to kill a bit of time. Enclose itself is certainly one of the most marketable and memorable games in the Mascoteers’ ever growing library. Adapting - and in this writer’s opinion, perfecting - a concept first pioneered in 360 Degree, the free-for-download Enclose is both challenging and addictive; the kind of game that will both frustrate and delight you. Ultimately, the exact kind of experience you’re looking for from a game in this category. The concept is simple enough, but highly variable - no two sessions are the same and it requires a lot of improvisation. To put it as simply as possible, the player taps the screen to rotate a shape made up of several outer panels. Bouncing around inside the shape is a ball, and a point is awarded every time it rebounds off an outer panel. The player’s objective is to keep the ball inside the shape, a task that becomes difficult as the panels shrink in size and disappear completely if the ball doesn’t make contact with them regularly. Unsurprisingly, Enclose seems significantly smoother when played on an Apple device; experts still regard iOS the superior gaming platform over Android. Plus the application runs well on older versions of iOS and can be enjoyed equally on any sized-screen. If you need something to keep you busy and have some space on your iPhone/iPad, Enclose is certainly worth a look and is free for download now.  Treasurer Scott Morrison Must Stop The Clock on Further Aid Cuts 2016-04-16T05:24:14Z treasurer-scott-morrison-must-stop-the-clock-on-further-aid-cuts-1 14 April 2016 MEDIA RELEASE   Treasurer Scott Morrison Must Stop The Clock on Further Aid Cuts Aid groups today called on the Turnbull Government to “Stop the Clock” and reverse a scheduled $224 million cut to the aid budget. The expected cut will reduce Australia’s aid budget to its lowest ever level and make Australia one of the least generous developed countries in the world. In a creative action to protest further cuts to Australia’s aid budget today, advocates from Campaign for Australian Aid, Micah Australia, TEAR Australia and Baptist World Aid made Treasurer Scott Morrison’s office look more like a movie set. Volunteers gathered giant clocks in front of the Treasurer’s office, before ‘the Doc’ from the Back to the Future series arrived in the famous DeLorean car with a message for Mr Morrison: “Great Scott, Stop the Clock!” “Aid organisations, along with 1.59 million supporters, are calling on the Government to stop the clock and reverse the final scheduled $224 million cut to the aid budget,” said Micah Australia’s National Coordinator, Ben Thurley. With the help of his famous time machine, the Doc’s theatrical appearance aimed to warn the Treasurer today about the impact the cuts will have if they go ahead at Budget time. “We’ve had a bit of fun here today, but the reality is much more serious. If we want to stop our nation becoming the least generous we’ve ever been, our time is running out,” said Mr Thurley. According to Mr Thurley, the budget cut would mean fewer children in poorer countries would be vaccinated and enrolled in school, fewer people would have access to safe water and there would be less life-saving assistance for vulnerable men, women and children in conflict and crisis situations. -Ends- To organise an interview with Mr Thurley, contact Sarah Cannata on 0407 536 133. The Campaign for Australian Aid is a joint initiative of the Make Poverty History and Micah Australia coalitions, for all Australians who believe we can and should do more as a nation to end extreme poverty around the world. It represents over 65 aid and development organisations, church, business and community groups. Micah Australia is a coalition of churches and Christian organisations raising a powerful voice for justice and a world free from poverty.  World of Women's Cinema launches 21st Film Festival 2016-04-15T03:46:21Z world-of-women-s-cinema-launches-21st-film-festival The World of Women’s Cinema (WOW) Film Festival has announced that its 21st festival will take place in Sydney this year, and tickets are now on sale. An initiative of Women in Film & Television (WIFT) NSW, the festival will be held throughout various venues in Sydney from the 28th April - 1st May, 2016, as well as touring to a number of venues and locations throughout Australia between May 2016 and May 2017. Gillian Armstrong, acclaimed Australian director, has been announced as WOW Film Festival Patron for 2016, and her seminal 1979 drama film, My Brilliant Career, has been selected to screen at the WOW Film Festival opening night gala. The festival will also hold a special 25th-anniversary screening of Ridley Scott’s iconic 1991 film Thelma and Louise.  WOW Film Festival is now in its 21st year, with its ultimate goal to celebrate and recognise films by and about women, by Australian and international creative teams. WOW FF will also facilitate important conversations around increasing access, participation and recognition of women in all aspects of the film industry. The program features eight curated programmes of short films as well as four international feature premieres. POW-WOW, a large series of masterclasses and panel discussions will also run alongside the screenings, offering film goers and makers the chance to learn firsthand from some of the most experienced and celebrated individuals in the Australian film industry. As well as these key discussion-based initiatives, an exciting new development opportunity has been created by the new WOW FF Team. Festival Director Sophie Mathisen today announced “On the Table” as part of the new WOW FF line-up, which will offer one female screenwriter the chance to have their unproduced feature screenplay read by Sydney actors in front of a live audience during the 3-day event. “There were hundreds of submissions for Screen Australia’s Brilliant Stories initiative,” said Sophie. “By showcasing one new work, we hope to provide emerging screenwriters with the impetus to continue to develop their work irrespective of the result of their funding applications. She continued, “this is an important step in lifting the veil on the wealth of Australian talent not currently spotlighted and we hope that the feedback gained from the table reading can aid an emerging writer develop their work further.” For details on submitting your film, Like and keep an eye on the WOW Facebook Page.

Following a slightly embarrassing "Marilyn" moment yesterday, when her £1,700 Emilia Wickstead dress flapped up in the breeze as the couple visited the tomb of the unknown soldier, the Duchess stepped out in something a little less formal for her meet and greet today. Wearing an Indian-inspired maxi dress by Manchester-based, self-proclaimed fast fashion label Glamorous, she looked cool and relaxed despite the heat. The dress was actually on sale earlier this year, but has now gone back online following the renewed interest from the royal outing. Katherine Peacock, CEO of Model Agency (http://www.modelagency.uk.com/) based in Wandsworth, London is more than aware of just how much influence the Duchess of Cambridge has on our taste in fashion as a nation. "As a model agency who operates on a global scale, but is based in London, we know just how much the UK and the rest of the world adores her" she says. "If she wears something mainstream, you can guarantee it sells out, sharpish" Peacock continues by adding "Part of her allure is that she is not only beautiful and graceful, she is also a mum of two young children, a wife and a supportive partner. She may be tall and thin, but many of the clothes she wears appeal to women of all shapes and sizes. As a very successful model agency that provides models for everything from Designer catwalk shows to High Street fashion stores we see just how much influence she has over us all. Her decision to wear a modest £50.00 dress will mean business will be booming for that particular label. Later in the day the Duchess was ready to meet the Indian Prime Minster wearing a stunning customized sea green lace dress by her favorite designer, Temperley London. "She looked like a million dollars in that dress" said Peacock, "but the truth is, she looked just as good in the £50 dress. She is a royal fashion inspiration for our times" To learn more about Model Agency and the plus size models available, please visit http://www.modelagency.uk.com/ About Model Agency Model Agency is an agency supplying a diverse range of models of all ages, sizes, heights and ethnic groups. Number 1 Hardwick's Square Hardwick's Way Wandsworth London SW18 4AW Telephone 0208 935 59 77 New Exciting Android Video Game Nutmeg Life Soccer Game Launched On Google Play 2016-04-14T14:55:39Z new-exciting-android-video-game-nutmeg-life-soccer-game-launched-on-google-play Nutmeg Life Soccer Game was designed by TB Games. It is available for Android on Google Play and allows the player to test their skill.   For soccer fans who cannot wait for the 2018 FIFA World Cup, which will be the 21st FIFA World Cup and held in Russia, TBZ Games has some good news. The popular gaming studio is pleased to announce they have launched their new Android video game on Google Play. Nutmeg Life Soccer has been described as one of the most exciting new soccer games of 2016, bringing players hours of fun on their Android devices.   The new nutmeg game has gained a great deal of attention from game reviewers and Android gamers alike. It’s a one of a kind game that tests the skill of the player. The team at TBZ Games came up with an idea and took it forward to provide players with an addictive soccer game that would be hard to put down.   The aim of Nutmeg Life is to get the soccer ball past the defender. Sounds easy but as many players have commentated, it isn’t. The defender has skill, he can come at the player and tackle them, the player has to use their skill and swipe left or right to avoid being tackled and keep possession of the ball. The longer the player spends their time trying to get the ball past the defender, the more skill they will gain, allowing them to become better than the defender.   Since being launched, it has become one of the most downloaded games in its category on Google Play. It continues to receive five-star reviews and has become one of the most recommended soccer games for Android devices.   Sam Jackson, who gave Nutmeg Life, a five-star review said: “Really cool soccer game. Love the game play and the whole idea of the game. I maybe love it because I play the sport and love to nutmeg my opponents :)”   Isabelle Boileau, who also gave the game, five stars said: “A really awesome game very relaxing and extremely addictive one of my favorites.”   To learn more about Nutmeg Life or to download the game and become the next David Beckham or Cristiano Ronaldo and beat the defender, please visit https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.TBZGames.NutmegLife&hl=en   About Nutmeg Life A simple to use nutmeg game for all soccer fans. It has become one of the most talked about soccer games of 2016 The Mascoteers’s new app Stairway launches with legendary replay value 2016-04-13T10:49:04Z the-mascoteers-s-new-app-stairway-launches-with-legendary-replay-value With a few hours, days’ months or years’ worth of replay value behind it, the developers aim to push this addictive new game all the way. The goal of the game is to achieve the highest possible score by controlling a ball that falls down an infinite flight of stairs. The more stairs you drop down, the higher your score, meaning that gamers will be limitless when it comes to intrinsic replay value. In addition to the mental dexterity needed to time your single tap controls to drop down flights of stairs, players will have to avoid obstacles as the game progresses, making playing harder with each replay. Always keeping the player returning to beat their high score is the main game mechanic that allows the player to start at zero again after they crash, drop or rage quit!

Stairway features innovative visuals that are inspired by the retro revolution in gaming that is currently hitting the market. Staying ahead of the curve, The Mascoteers has taken advantage of a number of technical innovations that offer interesting perspectives and angles to aid in gameplay and overall enjoyment.

Players can upgrade their balls for a choice of colours, as well as remove ads as part of the overall in-app purchasing options. Want to upgrade fast?
