Only a few weeks ago we wrote about how the Apple iPad has revolutionized the way in which people interact with information – and that Bloomberg has been there from the beginning.
Today we are proud to officially unveil the next version of the Bloomberg Anywhere app for iPad. We believe the redesigned app will take accessing financial information on a mobile platform to a new level of sophistication with its enhanced navigation and added features straight from the Bloomberg Professional service.
Our latest iPad app release is yet another example of Bloomberg’s drive for innovation as we provide subscribers with leading technology they can access wherever and whenever. Bloomberg has been providing mobile access to the most trusted source of data, news and analytics for more than 20 years and continues to deliver the mobility users require in a fast-moving, global market.
By having our “user experience” design team work directly with our customers to test the app’s design elements and capabilities, and listening to subscribers’ feedback, we have developed additions that focus on three specific areas:
1) enhanced customization and navigation, so users can easily access relevant news and market information
2) better offline capabilities, so they can read and access important information while in-flight
3) and added features, including Instant Bloomberg, Bloomberg Industries and enhanced charting capabilities
The tight integration and collaboration between our R&D and design teams, as well as our customers is what makes us so excited about this latest release.
We have seen – over the past three years – the number of subscribers accessing our platform on a mobile device double and more than half access the platform via multiple devices.
Bloomberg Anywhere was created with this in mind – and as the computing habits of our subscribers (current and future) evolves, we will continue to evolve alongside them to deliver the information and services they need and expect – anywhere, anytime.
For Bloomberg Professional service subscribers who want to download the new app can do so for free at the App Store:

September 28, 2011, Brno, Czech Republic – Beginning today, gamers around the world will never look at mobile games the same as Shadowgun, one of the most anticipated iOS games of 2011, hits the App Store, ushering in a new era of mobile gameplay graphics. The game, developed and published by MadFinger Games, is available for $7.99, and provides 10 levels of action and excitement, with console-quality visuals.
The most advanced handheld game on the market, Shadowgun, authored with the Unity development platform, combines tactical combat with third-person action. The game puts players into the role of John Slade, a professional bounty hunter in the year 2350. Slade’s mission: hunt down Dr. Edgar Simon, renowned geneticist and former employee of the trans-galactic corporation Toltech Enterprises. Players must lead “shadowgun” John Slade as he infiltrates Dr. Simon’s mountain fortress and fights his personal army of mutants, cyborgs, and genetically-enhanced humanoids.
Currently available for iOS devices including iPad 1, iPad2, iPhone 3GS/4G and iPod 4, Shadowgun will be available for Android devices beginning in early October. The game will support Android mobile devices including those powered by the NVIDIA Tegra super chip and will be available on the Tegra Zone app and Android Market.
“Shadowgun pushes the boundaries of what is possible graphically on today’s mobile devices,” said Marek Rabas, president of Madfinger Games. “Once a gamer picks up Shadowgun and experiences the amazing visuals, combined with the fast-paced, immersive gameplay, they will never be able to look at mobile games the same.”
”Unity has been thrilled to work so closely with Madfinger to help Shadowgun develop into one of the most exciting and beautiful games across any mobile platform,” said Unity Tecnologies CEO David Helgason “It’s awesome to be at the forefront of next-gen mobile gaming.”
Madfinger is also developing an even more enhanced version supporting NVIDIA’s Project Kal-El, the next-generation Tegra quad-core processor. The special version of Shadowgun will be optimized for multi-core processors and will take advantage of the processing and graphics power of Project Kal-El. The Android version will also support non-Tegra devices.
Shadowgun in available in the Apple App Store and at http://itunes.apple.com/hk/app/shadowgun/id440141669?mt=8

Port Saint Lucie, Florida – (August 9, 2011) – Bongiovi Acoustics, developers of the patented Digital Power Station™, introduces the world’s first fully-featured DPS-enabled audio player for iOS. Now you can enjoy music and video entertainment by optimizing media for your listening device and even for your listening environment. The Bongiovi DPS captures the patented real-time, audio re-mastering technology that was born in the original Power Station Studios and implements it into your iOS device. It is available immediately for download in the Apple App Store or on iTunes.
DPS is a 100% active digital processing method that analyzes the audio signal and re-masters it in real-time for optimized playback on a particular device. From high-end audiophile grade speaker systems, to low-end iPod speaker docks, DPS enhances your media across all hardware. Bongiovi engineers use over 120 calibration points to create customized audio profiles. The FREE Bongiovi DPS App comes with custom profiles that enhance playback on standard Apple earbuds and built-in speakers of supported iOS devices. An in-app purchase (introductory offer of .99 cents) enables users to further customize their own sound by selecting from a menu of tuning profiles created for today’s most popular headphones and docking systems.
“Our patented, real-time audio re-mastering process sets the new standard for digital audio in today’s new media delivery systems,” said Ron Simmons, Managing Director of Bongiovi Acoustics. “Poor audio quality from new media formats like mp3 files and streaming video is a digital problem and we’ve solved it with an innovative digital solution. We give you the tools to take control of your own audio. A simple app now enables you to significantly improve the audio performance of your Apple device or any accessory you connect it to.”
In 1977, legendary producer Tony Bongiovi built what would become the world’s most famous recording studio: Power Station. With its breakthrough acoustical design and innovative engineering, Power Station Studios became the facility of choice for artists like Bon Jovi, Aerosmith, Rolling Stones, AC/DC, Madonna, Mariah Carey, Bruce Springsteen, Paul McCartney, and many more. The Bongiovi DPS iOS application captures the technology born in the original Power Station Studios and conveniently delivers it to you. DPS technology can also be found in an expanding list of Toyota vehicles as well as in the award-winning iHome Studio Series docking stations.
The Bongiovi “B” Button
Users can breathe new life into their media library by simply pushing the “B” button on their iOS device. Click here to experience a trial on your computer: “B”
“We are all about empowering DPS users worldwide” says Phillip Fuller, VP of Engineering and Technology at Bongiovi Acoustics. “The unique control we gain through our use of profiles really puts the DPS over the top and sets us apart. Whether it’s with our desktop plug-in, our automotive module, iHome speaker docks, or now the iOS application, we can tailor a profile to optimize the playback of your media files for your specific device and listening environment. Spending money on expensive hardware to play the same old low-quality compressed file makes no sense! We attack the problem at the source and optimize it at its core – the program material. Our goal is to enhance your listening experience regardless of the quality of your hardware.”
