December 17, 2015 — San Diego, CA — Pixite LLC announced today the release of Pigment 1.0 for iPhone and iPad. With built-in support for Apple Pencil, 3D touch, and a wide assortment of coloring tools, Pigment is the only coloring book app to support freehand coloring, and is the closest thing digitally to coloring on paper. Pigment also stands out with its hundreds of hand curated, professionally drawn illustrations, 8 different kinds of pencils, markers and brushes, and an unlimited number of colors to choose from.

Research has shown that coloring and doodling on paper have substantial therapeutic effects by lowering stress and anxiety, and improving relaxation and concentration. By allowing artists to color using strokes of their finger, Apple Pencil, or a third-party stylus, Pigment can offer those same therapeutic effects on the iPhone and iPad. In fact, Pigment is the only coloring book app that allows freehand coloring, while the rest of the apps are tap-to-fill.

By varying the strokes, the coloring tool, and tool characteristics, each piece of artwork takes a life of its own like never before. The size and opacity of the tools like the colored pencil can always be adjusted using the intuitive onscreen controls. 3D Touch enabled iPads and iPhones, and the iPad Pro with Apple Pencil take the controls to the next level by allowing the user to change the opacity using pressure. Using the Apple Pencil, the user can even control the shape of the tip by changing direction and tilt. The outcome is the most realistic coloring experience on a digital device.
Color selection is often a challenge for the coloring book artist, especially when there is an unlimited number of colors to choose from. Pigment’s innovative approach is 14 hand selected palettes of 9 colors, with a shade control for each. The palettes offer a cohesive combination of colors, a great starting point for anyone. In addition, by using Pigment’s shade control, artists are able to select any shade of any color in the palette instantly. Not only does the shade control save time in selecting similar colors, it lets the user access an unlimited number of colors in the simplest way possible.
Although coloring is often done to fulfill personal needs, Pigment also makes it easy to share work with friends and family. The available sharing options are email, SMS text, Facebook, and other social networks.

Pigment is a free app with an optional subscription to the Pigment Premium Access service, the key to the entire library of 200+ professionally drawn illustrations and updates to new books. Premium Access also unlocks the saving of non-watermarked, high-resolution images of artwork, up to 4096×4096 pixels.

SAN DIEGO (July 1, 2015) – everyStory, a new cloud-based story-sharing platform, launches today. This one-of-a kind tool is now available for iPad devices during open-Beta and can be downloaded in the App Store. everyStory allows users to store audio and image files to a secure cloud-based system with the option of sharing photos and stories between other everyStory individuals and groups.

“I created everyStory after being diagnosed with colon cancer and realizing my son may never remember my voice or hear my stories. I am passionate about providing people with an innovative way to preserve and share memories forever in the most interactive way possible,” said Dave Keene, CTO of everyStory. “My love for family history dates back to my childhood, but the urgency of needing to save those memories amplified when I unfortunately and prematurely loss two of my closest loved ones. Soon after my first daughter was born and my motivation to make a product like everyStory available to everyone was immediate,” said Ed Cox, CEO of everyStory.

Users can import photos from a computer, iOS photo album or scan physical photos directly into the app using a device camera. The platform integrates a social network component by encouraging users to tag photos with people, and/or by location, subject or date. To create an interactive photo-album, everyStory lets multiple users record an audio message, on the same photos, in a shared album or within a group. Users can simply tap a tagged person’s name to hear the story that is connected to a specific photo or album.

everyStory is free for everyone throughout open-Beta. Thereafter, the company will offer free and premium memberships suitable for anyone’s file storing needs. The free membership allows users to store up to 500 photos coupled with unlimited audio recording storage. everyStory’s referral program allows free members and the referred new user to receive space for an extra 100 photos. Unlimited audio and photo storage is offered with the premium membership, $3.99 per month or $39.99 annually, along with access to exclusive content.

The everyStory team has plans to add more capabilities to the platform in the coming months and will create versions suitable for other devices and operating systems.
