Athlone-based iPhone app development company Moonswing is making its Bet Settler and Wedding Speechstake apps available for free for a very limited time. Both can be downloaded for no charge from the iTunes App Store this weekend December 4 and 5.
The company's betting calculator Bet Settler has proved very popular since its launch in April 2010, reaching number 15 in the paid sports app category in the UK and number two in the same category in Ireland. Shortly after its release Bet Settler was named App of the Week on the website of Business Traveller - the world's leading magazine for the frequent business traveller. The current version of Bet Settler (v1.4 ) was released in September and added a range of new bets that can be settled, including Round Robins and Flag bets.
Moonswing's second app Wedding Speechstake was released last month, and brings the popular tradition of timing the speeches at a wedding to the iPhone. Wedding Speechstake is great fun for a table of friends at a wedding reception and also a wonderful conversation starter and ice breaker at a table where guests might not know each other.
“We've decided to give Bet Settler and Wedding Speechstake away for free this weekend, as it's a year since we first started to develop apps for the iPhone and we think this is a nice way to mark the progress we've made to date,” explains Moonswing's founder Tom Tierney. “Also, given the country's financial woes, it certainly seems like a good time to give away something for free. We're suggesting that people can redeploy Wedding Speechstake as Budget Speechstake for a day and use it to time Minister Lenihan's speech. If you get a group of friends involved you could even finish budget day in profit.”
