[prMac.com] Toms River, New Jersey - Rhine-o Enterprises LLC announces the release of Team Shake for Android. Team Shake is a favorite app used by many teachers, sport enthusiasts, and gamers to create teams or groups on the go with their iPhone or iPad. Rhine-o Enterprises LLC has now brought this 5 star rated iOS app to the Android world. Team Shake provides a technological and environmentally friendly way to choose teams for board games, sporting events, tournaments, school projects or any time groups are needed. The initial Android release brings with it many advanced features including balancing teams based on skill or gender, forcing users to be on the same or different teams, importing users from a file, sharing teams via Facebook or email, and much more!
Team Shake is the premier iOS and Android app for creating teams. Instead of a hat and scraps of paper, the user enters his friends' or students names in his phone and gives it a shake. The screen will then display a random set of color-coded teams. These teams can immediately be used for game play or shared via Facebook or email. The quick and easy selection of random (or balanced) teams eliminates fighting over who will be on which team. Innovative use of the shake gesture gives users the satisfying feeling of 'shaking' a virtual hat without the trouble of carrying around an actual hat. Conventional buttons can also be used for those who would rather not shake their expensive hardware about.
The app is designed with ease of use and simplicity in mind. Names can easily be entered with the onscreen keyboard or imported from a file. The email and Facebook functions document the members of each individual team, as well as preserve the team number and color assigned by the app. For repeated use of Team Shake, lists of friends can be easily saved and loaded later. The current list is also automatically saved so that if you exit the app, or even reboot the device, changes will not be lost. For teachers and others with large lists of people, Team Shake supports the ability to import teams from text or CSV files.
Team Shake has a broad community of users that use the app for many different purposes. It is very popular among teachers for creating groups and teams for classroom projects. Physical Education teachers, in particular, use Team Shake extensively for creating teams in many different ways. Team Shake is used by Golf Pros, Ultimate Frisbee players, and to create teams for many different sports. Team Shake is also used for picking teams for board games, tournaments, and even Cub Scout events! To meet this need, Team Shake has a number of options that allow teams to be created exactly how the user wants them. This includes creating completely random teams, teams with equally balanced strength, teams consisting of players of equal ability, teams with a balanced number of male and female players, teams that consist of only male or female players, and specifying groups of users that should always or never be on the same team. Our team always welcome feedback and suggestions at firstname.lastname@example.org, and responds quickly to feature requests from our users. Whatever your needs, Team Shake is for you!
