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. Headquartered in San Diego, Calif., the company has over 350 employees in 30 offices internationally. For more information visit www.innova-mobile.com.
