San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) March 17, 2009
Northern California-based JAZ Games today announced the release of three of their newest iPhone application tools designed to deliver fun, information and business accessibility through your iPhone or iPod Touch while on the go.
The three new programs "Know it All," "Sounds of Adventure," and "Charge It!," are the newest applications from this innovative mobile design team.
"Know it All" is a downloadable iPhone trivia game that tests a player's general knowledge while allowing the creation of personal trivia that can be shared with family and friends. Players accrue JAZ points for each game played that can be redeemed for special on-line prizes at http://www.jazgames.com .
Know-It-All," available for $2.99 at http://www.apple.com/downloads, features more than 500 general knowledge trivia questions and multiple choice answers in seven categories - Entertainment, Sports, History, Science, Comic Books, the Arts, and Geography. The game allows players to test their knowledge in single-player mode or to compete with up to five players on a wireless network in the multi-player mode.
Because this is an iPhone app, it can be played anywhere a player has a signal. The game also allows the player to create personal trivia to challenge family and friends or to use it as an educational tool by customizing and personalizing their own trivia packs with questions and answers based on any topic of their choosing.
"The Sounds of Adventure," a sound game, allows users to employ the built-in iPhone and iPod Touch accelerometer to create a large mix of sounds - crack a whip, wield a laser sword, or snap a pair of nunchucks with a flick of the wrist! The program offers the unique experience of tapping into the myriad sounds of adventure, the world of Kung-Fu Master, a Galaxy Ranger or even the lonesome sounds of a Cowboy Drifter.
"The Sounds of Adventure" is available for download from the iTunes store at http://tinyurl.com/anz3eu for only .99ç. The app will download straight to your iPhone or iPod Touch device over the Edge, G3 or wireless networks.
With "Charge It!" your iPhone becomes an immediate business tool with the ability to accept mobile credit card payments wherever in partnership with Authorize.net. Charge It! transforms your iPhone into a virtual credit card terminal giving you the ability to accept credit cards anywhere your business takes you - rock concerts, flea markets, Comic-Con, trade shows or memorabilia shows. Charge It! can be downloaded at http://www.apple.com/downloads for $14.99.
Charge It! allows you to process credit cards anywhere you have an Edge/G3/WiFi signal and works on both iPod Touch and the iPhone - and no laptop or additional hardware are required. The program allows simple and lightning-fast entry of the credit card number, expiration dates, amount of transaction and billing zip code right from the main screen. Additional information about the transaction also can be added for your records such as customer contact info, email and billing addresses, invoice numbers or a description of the item being sold.
An easy, one-time setup is required, and your API Login ID and Transaction Key are saved, tested and stored securely within the Apple Keychain. Fraud Protection is provided through Authorize.Net including Address Verification Services (AVS) and Card Security Codes (CVV2, CVC, CID). SSL encryption from Authorize.Net securely transmits the card numbers. Customers will be satisfied that their personal information is safe since credit Card numbers are not stored on the device, thereby securing the customer's credit information.
PLEASE NOTE: An Authorize.Net account is required to use Charge It! (Authorize.Net is a leading provider of payment gateway services and has been in business since 1996. They are the #1 provider in the United States and are extremely well respected. Please visit their site at-- http://www.authorize.net/ to create an account.)
