Free Apple App Development Contest: Free App To Good Home!

Louisville, Colo., USA (2 September 2015)— Spastic Muffin, LLC is proud to announce a free app development contest. You’ve heard of free app downloads? Well now you’re hearing about a free app developer! Starting this year, and potentially to continue in subsequent years, we will be donating one month of a USA-based senior app developer’s full-time work to build you an Apple iOS app (iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch devices only). This is a contest, and if you want to be eligible to win this donated service, you must give us a proposal that talks up and explains your app development idea. Proposals can be tendered by anyone fluent in English, must be uploaded as a 1 page PDF, and must be provided by 2 October 2015. If you don’t apply, you can’t win!

For details on this contest and its proposal requirements, see: http://www.SpasticMuffin.biz/?page=freeapp
Make sure to read these requirement details carefully. Not all proposals are created equal, and the Spastic Muffin critical eye will weed out proposals that are not technically sound or not well constructed.

About the business:
Spastic Muffin, LLC was formed in Louisville, Colorado, USA in 2013, and is a contract app development and inspired app development company. Normally we don’t donate our time for free, but rather we do contract (i.e., paid) app development.

Catsy Cat Toy: New Customizable and Shareable Mobile Toy App for Cats

Louisville, Colo., USA (27 August 2015)—Spastic Muffin, LLC is happy to announce the launch of Catsy, a new cat toy mobile app on the Apple App Store. This cat toy app allows customization and sharing with others: New games can be created and sent to others via email. We made this app because one of our cats really liked another Apple game app, but that app seemed too complicated, kept asking you (or your cat!) to make purchases, and didn’t let you customize or share. Catsy is simple to use, and it is free.

Catsy animates an “Ugly Duckling” on the screen of an iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch (YouTube videos linked at http://GetCatsy.com). Your cat paws at the screen and when they hit the Ugly Duckling, the app makes a bird or cat sound. Humans use authoring mode to create new games, and share games with others via email. Catsy makes it easy to keep the screen locked with Apple Guided Access (see help in authoring mode), so your kitty can play without Tweeting or posting to Facebook!

Catsy can be downloaded from the Apple App store using this link:

Petunia pet records iPad app now available in the Apple app store

Louisville, Colo., USA (5 November 2014)—We are proud to announce the release of Petunia, the app that helps keep your pets safe, and their records close when it matters most.

Petunia is a freemium iPad app that saves your pet’s health history and personality quirks and makes it easy to share that information with your pet sitters and veterinarians. Want to make sure the pet sitter remembers that Fluffy likes her food warmed 12 seconds in the microwave? Petunia’s got that. Need to note when Fido did not eat his dinner? Don’t write it down on a napkin. Note it in Petunia where Fido’s information is backed-up and organized. Information is critical in the health-care equation. Make sure that your pet sitters know when to give Sparky his medications, and that your new vet knows the manufacturer of Sparky’s vaccinations.

The app is great for single pet households and multiple pet households. Pet owners can update each pet’s unique profile anytime and simply email or print it for a sitter or the vet. No need to fill out pet forms over and over again.

Petunia helps you with:
Pet sitting: Minimize stress and reduce the risk of missing important health-information when leaving pets in someone else’s care. Petunia lets you share critical pet care details with pet sitters.
Symptom tracking: Record when your cat threw up, or when Fido needs his heartworm pill. You’ll see trends that can keep your pets healthy and never forget details.
Changing vets: When traveling, keep your pets’ medical records close and share them with new vets any time, even in emergencies.

Petunia’s free features:
• Record profiles, vet visits, and home care for all of your pets
• Share information about one pet, using email, within a single page PDF
• Automatically add dates, e.g., vet appointments, into calendar
• Graph weight history of pets
• Customize your pet’s photos on his or her profile page

Petunia’s paid features:
• Share information about all your pets in text format or multi-page PDF’s through email, Dropbox, and Google Drive. US$0.99/year, or US$4.99 for permanent use.
• Advertising removal. US$0.99/year, or US$4.99 permanently.
Petunia was developed by pet-loving folks at Spastic Muffin, LLC, a software development company in Louisville, Colorado, USA. Our pets inspired the idea for Petunia and helped with the testing.
