Innova-Mobile Releases 1.5 Version of Inspire! Productivity App

Featuring an All-New Seasonal Mode With Pre-Loaded Lifestyle Goals for New Year Goal Planning; Available Now on iTunes

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - December 19, 2012) -  Innova-Mobile Applications, a leading provider of innovative consumer and business-to-business mobile applications, today released its latest version (1.5) of Inspire!, the company's flagship productivity application for the Apple® iPad. Inspire!, which first debuted on the iTunes store in March earlier this year, now features expanded viewing capabilities, improved synchronization, and streamlined navigation functionality -- plus, an all-new Seasonal Mode featuring over 30 pre-selected lifestyle goals just in time for New Year's resolution planning.

The intuitive productivity app, which is adaptable for multiple uses across home, school, personal and business, is designed to help people create and visualize their unique personal and professional goals -- then achieve them through manageable, self-paced steps via an interactive, customizable weekly planning format.

"We are excited to offer the release of Inspire! 1.5, which delivers an even more optimized user experience with overall improvements in navigation, synchronization and screen views," said Chris Wollerman, chief executive officer of Innova-Mobile Applications. "And just in time for the New Year, we've included an all-new Seasonal Mode, featuring more than 30 pre-loaded and easy-to-select goals. The new mode is exclusively designed to simplify the goal selection process, and help users succeed with their New Year's resolutions."

Version 1.5 Featured Enhancements
Along with a variety of precision fixes, version 1.5 features the following key enhancements:

  • New seasonal mode: Set-up now features over 30 pre-selected goals to choose from to inspire New Year's resolutions. User-selected goals automatically populate in the Inspire! Goals section.
  • Integrated task and reminders synchronization: New for iOS6, integrated task and reminder functionality for quick, easy synchronization between Inspire! and calendars on iPad, Microsoft Outlook and Google to receive Inspire! task reminders.
  • Streamlined navigation: Redesigned header navigation in Planning Mode delivers more intuitive functionality for toggling between activities, such as between the Objective and Calendar view.
  • Expanded view area for Goal Setting: Newly expandable, scrollable display area in Goal Objective edit mode provides easier viewing of goal descriptions and measures.

The company recently sponsored an employee Fitness Technology Working Group -- designed to introduce an element of team camaraderie to the goal setting experience -- using Inspire! as the primary tool for identifying, visualizing and tracking fitness and lifestyle goals. Participant feedback from the working group has so far reported a variety of positive results, ranging from enabling users to more effectively set and achieve weight loss goals, create healthier lifestyle habits, and even better prepare them for unforeseen event changes in both their work and day-to-day personal lives.

The new 1.5 version of Inspire! is available now for download on iTunes. To learn more about Innova-Mobile Applications and the Inspire! productivity application, visit www.innova-mobile.com.

About Innova-Mobile Applications
Innova-Mobile Applications, a leading provider of agile mobile software solutions, was founded in 2011 to develop mobile applications for consumer and business-to-business use. The business inspiration came from Chris Wollerman, company founder and chief executive officer, while teaching leadership courses to his employees. While participants were greatly inspired by the course material, there were no useful tools to help put the lessons into daily practice using mobile smart devices. It was then that he pursued the development of Inspire!, a mobile productivity application designed to help users more easily identify, set and achieve personal and professional goals. Innova-Mobile is also the creator of ImageQuiz, a consumer and business gaming and learning application that enables users to create compelling memory quizzes based on images stored on their mobile device.

Developing software for the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with its own set of challenges. Security, privacy, and unified standards are a few key issues. In addition, each IoT product is comprised of (at least) three separate application components: the software embedded in the device, the back-end service, and the mobile application for the end user’s controls. Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/target –...
What does it look like when you have access to cloud infrastructure and platform under the same roof? Let’s talk about the different layers of Technology as a Service: who cares, what runs where, and how does it all fit together. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Phil Jackson, Lead Technology Evangelist at SoftLayer, an IBM company, spoke about the picture being painted by IBM Cloud and how the tools being crafted can help fill the gaps in your IT infrastructure.
One of biggest questions about Big Data is “How do we harness all that information for business use quickly and effectively?” Geographic Information Systems (GIS) or spatial technology is about more than making maps, but adding critical context and meaning to data of all types, coming from all different channels – even sensors. In his session at @ThingsExpo, William (Bill) Meehan, director of utility solutions for Esri, will take a closer look at the current state of spatial technology and ar...
According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, wh...
Ask someone to architect an Internet of Things (IoT) solution and you are guaranteed to see a reference to the cloud. This would lead you to believe that IoT requires the cloud to exist. However, there are many IoT use cases where the cloud is not feasible or desirable. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, will discuss the strategies that exist to extend intelligence directly to IoT devices and sensors, freeing them from the constraints of ...
Let’s face it, embracing new storage technologies, capabilities and upgrading to new hardware often adds complexity and increases costs. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Seth Oxenhorn, Vice President of Business Development & Alliances at FalconStor, discussed how a truly heterogeneous software-defined storage approach can add value to legacy platforms and heterogeneous environments. The result reduces complexity, significantly lowers cost, and provides IT organizations with improved efficienc...
Businesses are struggling to manage the information flow and interactions between all of these new devices and things jumping on their network, and the apps and IT systems they control. The data businesses gather is only helpful if they can do something with it. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Witeck, Principal Technology Strategist at Citrix, will discuss how different the impact of IoT will be for large businesses, expanding how IoT will allow large organizations to make their legacy ap...

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...
