[prMac.com] Alexandria, Virginia - Vito Technology developers, known for their popular educational iOS apps Star Walk (Apple Design Awards 2010 winner), Solar Walk (Best Apps of 2009,2010) and Geo Walk (Featured by Apple in the Earth Day Apps, Apps for the Great Outdoors) have released a brand new single "Lemur Tango" together with a music video. The song based on Argentinian motive features almost all developers of the Vito team and is their first try in music video making. This is by no means a professional endeavor but merely a humorous side-project they have engaged into just for fun and pleasure. The video is presented to general public for amusement and is not to be taken seriously.
Murad Nazaraliev, the Managing Director at Vito Technology and the main person behind the project says: "It started out as a regular band rehearsal, but as a few more people from the team got involved, we decided to find a job for everyone. We have other interests besides coding, for instance there is a professional dancer, a few musicians, and a film maker among us. This song was just an experiment on what else we can do together and probably an exercise at not taking everything you do seriously."
The single was released on iTunes on Sept, 29th. The music video is available on YouTube together with a release giveaway which runs until Monday, Oct 3rd, 2011.
Vito Technology and many people found in the video are more famous for their iOS development skills. Star Walk is an interactive astronomy guide for iOS, an award-winning Education app that allows users to easily locate and identify 20,000 objects in the night sky. The 360-degree, touch control star map displays constellations, stars, planets, satellites, and galaxies currently overhead from anywhere on Earth. The app's database is self-contained and no Internet connection is required.
Solar Walk is a graphically stunning spinnable and zoomable toy designed to show you the structure and laws of the Solar System. It is a virtual model of the Solar system with options to "jump to another planet", and watch the planetary movements from any desired angle.
