[prMac.com] Salt Lake City, Utah - Appdicted, developer of the popular iPhone app Monster Meter, announced that The Sunday Times recently named Monster Meter as a Top 500 App in their definitive App List. Experts in the relevant fields and regular Sunday Times app reviewers have compiled the Top 500 App List. The App List covers all the most popular devices including Apple(R) iPadTM and iPhone(R), RIM(R) BlackBerry(R), Google(R) AndroidTM, Nokia(R) and Amazon(R) Kindle(R). Some were included for their practicality and usefulness; while others were selected because they were brilliantly fun and addictive.
"A beautiful idea that sounds silly but has a serious purpose." Stated by Stuart Dredge in The Sunday Times Top 500 App List review.
The list will be published in The Sunday Times and will be available on their website.
"We are very excited about this news! With well over 500,000 mobile apps on the market, to make a list of the top 500 is extraordinary!" said Rory Boyer founder and chief officer of Appdicted.
A unique tool for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad users, Monster Meter gives parents a way to "prove" to young children that there are no monsters hiding in their room. The app offers four different monster detection technologies; including two realistic scanner displays and two meters to impress little ones with the reliability of the application. Monster Meter helps frightened children feel safe and sleep easier.
Monster Meter has been in the App Store for 6 months and has helped thousands of children sleep peacefully. The creative app offers parents a convincing tool for helping to alleviate small children's fears of monsters that hide under the bed or in the closet.
The application puts four monster detection technologies in the palm of a parent's hand. There are two scanners, Radar and Grid, which use a device's camera to display realistic scans of a room, while the Green and Metal meters offer up evidence of monsters, or the lack of monsters, hiding in a room. All of the scanners and meters have sound to accompany the screen displays and help prove to a young child that their bedroom is a safe place.
Parents will love the features offered in this handy tool:
* Four different monster detection technologies
* All scanners and meters have sound and screen display
* Scans are very realistic and convincing
* Helps kids feel safe in their rooms
* Helps both parent and child get a good night's sleep
* Adjustable settings
There may be times, such as Halloween, when a parent feels that it's okay for Monster Meter to detect an old monster or two, just for fun. For that reason, Appdicted designed the app's setting to be adjustable, allowing for the showing of monsters, if desired. All in all, Monster Meter may be the perfect application to cure a child's fear of the dark. Parents can use it to provide concrete evidence that their child's room is monster-free and everyone can enjoy a good nights rest.
