Landka releases astronomy-based educational game for iOS

Landka, in collaboration with the European Space Agency and other scientific organizations, has announced the availability of Kiwaka, an astronomy game for iOS devices. Aimed at a young audience, Kiwaka includes over 120 space images, as well as external links for cosmos exploration. Included video content explains how to find and identify important stars and constellations in the sky. Landka has also released a book app for children, entitled Kiwaka Story, which tells of an adventure of discovering ancient mysteries of the stars. Both apps are available for iPhone and iPad, and are priced at $3.

Iris 1.0.1 released, offers screen recording for OS X

Static Z Software has announced the release of an update for Iris, a screen recorder app for OS X. Allowing users to record directly to h.264, Apple ProRes, or record and encode later, the app's ability to capture is optimized with GPU-accelerated processing and encoding on supported Macs. Its audio capturing can record from two different sources, including audio from the user's Mac; Iris can also target audio from specific applications. Users can pause and resume recordings as desired, record with Retina quality where supported, and have access to full hotkey support. A free, watermarked version of Iris v1.0.1 is available, with the full version accessible through an in-app purchase for $20.
