Daily Deals: Storm Born and Multi Reps

Storm BornToday Amazon offers to get a book for easy reading. The name of the book is Storm Born. It was written by Richelle Mead. The price is $0.99

Just typical. No love life to speak of for months, then all at once, every horny creature in the Otherworld wants to get in your pants. . .

Eugenie Markham is a powerful shaman who does a brisk trade banishing spirits and fey who cross into the mortal world. Mercenary, yes, but a girl’s got to eat. Her most recent case, however, is enough to ruin her appetite. Hired to find a teenager who has been taken to the Otherworld, Eugenie comes face to face with a startling prophecy–one that uncovers dark secrets about her past and claims that Eugenie’s first-born will threaten the future of the world as she knows it.

Now Eugenie is a hot target for every ambitious demon and Otherworldy ne’er-do-well, and the ones who don’t want to knock her up want her dead. Eugenie handles a Glock as smoothly as she wields a wand, but she needs some formidable allies for a job like this. She finds them in Dorian, a seductive fairy king with a taste for bondage, and Kiyo, a gorgeous shape-shifter who redefines animal attraction. But with enemies growing bolder and time running out, Eugenie realizes that the greatest danger is yet to come, and it lies in the dark powers that are stirring to life within her. . .

 

Multi RepsAlso you can get an application Multi Reps which could help you to keep your schedule of  exercises for free today only.

Start Strong, Finish Strong

Would you like to be able to perform a hundred push-ups or two hundred sit-ups? Reach your individual goal of consecutive repetitions for any exercise with Multi Reps on your Android device. This all-in-one app gives you the guidance you need to stay on track and finish strong.

Set Your Own Goals

Set your fitness goals, and an automated workout schedule generator will create a workout program based on your current level of fitness. Keep in mind that it’s more difficult for a fit person to improve his or her physical capacity compared to a beginner. The more fit you tell the app that you are, the longer the generated schedule will be.

Customize Your Workouts

You also have the option to enter your own custom workout schedule. Multi Reps supports ten different, fully customizable exercises (push-ups, sit-ups, dips, squats, pull-ups, and five generic exercises). Use the timer to manage the rest time between each set. The app beeps when there are a few seconds left until the next set.

Keep track of your progress by saving your exercises in the diary. Set workout reminders so you won’t forget your next workout. Integrate Multi Reps with your Facebook account so all your friends can keep track of your progress, too.

Google Learns From Kindle Fire Success, Separates Work And Play

Google has announced an immediate change of their marketing for the Android Marketplace.  It shall henceforth be known as “Google Play”.  Now, possibly I’m reading too much into this but it sounds a  lot like they saw what Amazon had pulled off with the Kindle Fire and realized that it was possible to break consumption away from production in the area of mobile devices.  After all, you are clearly not targeting enterprise users by sending them to Play, right?

Google Play is more than just a rebranding of the Marketplace, of course.  It is an effort to bring together Google’s apps, movies, eBooks, and music in a single package for easy consumption.  Anybody familiar with the Kindle Fire or the philosophy it embraces will probably be noticing some interesting similarities right away from the description, honestly.  All Google Play services will be entirely cloud-based much like what Amazon has been doing, so that all of your content is available at once regardless of storage space available on any particular device.

For those who are already using the Google Marketplace options, there should be a smooth roll-out.  Most people are reporting that the apps have already updated, much of the time without users so much as noticing the change at first.  All content that you own through Google is immediately available in the new apps, so the transition should be quite smooth.  It will encompass all geographic areas, with what Play content is available being determined by the individual market.  Canada and the UK have Movies, eBooks, and Apps; Australia has eBooks and Apps; most areas have at least the App store.  No real functional change, in many ways.

What makes this significant is what it means going forward.  Clearly Google is going to be aiming directly as consumer markets with Play, following the example set by the Kindle Fire (in preparation for their rumored 7” tablet?).  This was where most of these integrated services were generally heading toward anyway, though, however much the Android Marketplace offered options for all activities.  By making it explicit, Google has the opportunity to specifically target business users with a more direct approach.  It is not hard to imagine an expansion of Google’s production based products in the very near future.

Sadly, this new set of apps will not make it any easier for Kindle Fire users to access Google’s services without roundabout methods or rooting of the device.  While this likely would have been a good opportunity for the company to slip in a way to let Amazon’s customers choose between the stores, it is probable that Amazon locked that down fairly tightly before things even started to ship.  At this point side-loaded apps from the new service will either fail to install in the first place or never load properly once installed.  Competition between the two over who gets the most popular closed ecosystem will have to take place as scheduled when Google’s own hardware sees the light of day.
