Segmation releases Free iPad/Mobile Phone Paint By Numbers App
Segmation (www.segmation.com) has introduced SegPlay® Mobile 2.0, available for free at the Apple iTunes Store and newly optimized for iPhone, iPad, and iPod.
SegPlay Mobile 2.0 is the mobile app of SegPlay’s Paint By Numbers software, and lets players use their fingers like a paintbrush. Formerly sold for $1.99 at the Apple store, it’s now available for free and is fully compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPad, iPod touch (3rd generation), and iPod touch (4th generation) devices. SegPlay requires iOS 5.0 or later.
The app has been optimized for the larger iPad display in both landscape and portrait orientations, making it work like a giant digital canvas for painting on.
“We’re very excited to be able to offer SegPlay as a free mobile phone app” says company president Mark Feldman. “It’s the quickest, coolest, and fastest way to paint by numbers using your iPhone, iPad, or iPod, and is the perfect form of entertainment for people on the go.”
The SegPlay Mobile 2.0 app download includes six free patterns to get players started, with an impressive – and growing – library of six-pattern sets in diverse fun categories available in six levels of difficulty. Additional pattern sets are available, and very reasonably priced at under $1 each. New pattern sets are also being released every month.
“Version 2.0 is a huge leap from its predecessor,” notes Feldman, observing the ability to feel the canvas using an iPad, with easy to use graphics, near infinite zooming, panning, pinching, flicking and user-friendly icons.
He adds, “Besides now being free and having a cleaner interface, we’ve fixed a bunch of bugs, installed new upgrades, and provided many special features. Some of those features are available immediately with the free download, the rest will unlock after just one new set of patterns is purchased.” These features include:
- Timed painting
- Customized palettes
- Scoring your work while beating the clock
- Solving the puzzle with the push of a button
- Near infinite zooming
- Fun sound effects
- An abilitity to share your finished patterns with friends on Facebook
“I can’t even tell you how many thousands of our community’s members have spent the past year painting by numbers on their mobile devices. They’ve been extremely anxious to get their fingers on these upgrades and new patterns, and are thrilled about being able to download new pattern sets every month. We heard what customers wanted, and we delivered.”
“Plus with just one pattern set purchase, you’ll get rid of those pesky advertisements” he laughs.”
“Regardless of what you do during your day,” says Feldman, “There’s nothing so refreshing as painting by numbers. It’s fun, it’s relaxing, and it’s INCREDIBLY addictive.”
“Best of all,” he smiles “There’s no mess to clean up when you’re done.”
