Boulder, CO, United States, 2010/01/29 - Amadeus Consulting and Manayunk productions are excited to announce that Speed Bag: Urban Gym is on the front page of the Apple App Store, as a recommended Staff Pick.
Amadeus Consulting and Manayunk Productions are excited to announce that Speed Bag: Urban Gym is on the front page of the Apple® App Store, as a recommended Staff Pick. The application, built and powered by Amadeus Consulting, is designed to emulate a real speed bag, with 3D motion, fast paced levels and a scoring system that ranks both the speed and accuracy.
To be on the Staff Pick section of the Apple App Store, an application must have been approved by the store itself and have caught their attention in a pool of over 115,000 third party applications. Speed Bag: Urban Gym has a customer rating of 4.5 stars, so it is grabbing the attention of staff and customers alike. Here is what some users had to say about the app:
“Great, realistic graphics, I have trouble putting it down!”
“This game was well developed. The bag functions very much like a real speed bag. It’s also pretty challenging. I would recommend it.”
Marc Polett, an avid boxer and founder of Manayunk Productions, wanted to break into the iPhone application market with a speed bag simulator. He came to Amadeus Consulting to develop Speed Bag, as part of his Urban Gym line of iPhone™ applications. He chose Amadeus Consulting in a bid process as his development partner because of the Colorado iPhone application developer’s extensive iPhone capabilities as well as being able to turn the project around quickly and within scope.
Of the process of working with Amadeus Consulting Marc Polett said, “With the help of Amadeus Consulting, Inc., I feel we have not only recreated the exact feel and atmosphere associated with going up against a speed bag, but have also created a fun game that will introduce new fans to the sport of boxing.”
Amadeus Consulting and Manayunk Productions look forward to developing more successful and fun applications with one another.
