[prMac.com] Leiden, The Netherlands - Announcing that LuuX software, the developers of ShowerTime, have launched a new application for users interested in saving time and money while contributing to the preservation of natural resources. ShowerTime's intelligent sound recognition feature automatically signals shower duration, while the app also calculates costs and projects cost and water savings. This means lower water and energy bills for users and fewer drains on the earth's resources.
LuuX software developers are introducing their innovative new technology in this product launch. ShowerTime is the first and only application with an intelligent sound recognition feature. Once a user has recorded the sound of their shower, the app will automatically start and stop its timer in accordance to the running of the water. This is a unique feature not found in any other application.
ShowerTime helps users who are keen environmentalists, those looking to save money, or people who simply lose track of time. A user can easily preset the time and money they want to spend or just let the application let them know how much of each they've used once they're done.
This really is a 'set it and forget it' program. Once the app is opened and engaged, it will give clear, loud audio and visual signals when it's time to rinse and again at the appropriate time to turn off the water, if the user has input a specified showering time or cost.
The application displays the timer and counter throughout the showering cycle and gives the final figures upon completion. Users know the impact their timing has on their finances (in their own currency) and the amount of water used for the shower. While other energy sources are not mentioned, whatever resources are used to heat the water will realize a savings, as well. The app also offers projections of cost and water savings that can be achieved by showering anywhere from one to three minutes less per day.
* Listens for the sound of the shower starting and stopping
* Gives a clear, loud signal when it is time to rinse
* Lets users know when it is time to turn off the water
* Works automatically, giving audio and visual signals
* Can be custom set to specified time, cost and usage
* Projects water and cost savings by shaving shower time

Developers have pretty much made this application foolproof. Users need to input the price they pay for water and the program does the rest. The only other detail people need to tend to is to protect their iPhone or iPod touch. Devices can be harmed by water, condensation or steam. As the developers are not responsible for any damages, they are recommending that users put their iPhones or iPod touch devices into a container or waterproof case. Just makes sense.
The price of the ShowerTime app is well worth the investment, considering the potential savings to the user and the earth's natural resources. It's relatively painless, only a minute or two a day to see results without having to do much, thanks to the unique technology. That makes the application perfect for everybody, regardless of their motivation for buying it.
* iPhone and iPod touch
* Requires iPhone OS 3.0 or later
* 3.5 MB
