[prMac.com] Huntingtown, Maryland - Independent software developer Ray Wenderlich released Level Me Up!, his new app for iPhone or iPod Touch. "Level Me Up!" helps motivate yourself to become an expert in skills you are learning. Researchers have found that experts like Mozart, the Beatles, Tiger Woods, or Bill Gates have spent over 10,000 hours honing their skills. It's the old saying "practice makes perfect" - a LOT of practice.
The problem is getting to that 10,000 mark takes a lot of time - and it's easy to become discouraged along the way. This is where "Level Me Up!" comes in handy. You can list the skills you want to learn, enter the hours you train over time, and watch your experience bar grow! You gain titles and levels over time, and each level puts you one step closer to that 10,000 expert level mark.
"Level Me Up!" is the first iPhone app released by software developer Ray Wenderlich. "I've been using the app myself," said Wenderlich. "It's great motivation to see my skills progressing over time, and also to keep myself from expecting expert level work out of myself in something I'm only a beginner in."
* iPhone or iPod Touch 3.0 or later
Pricing and Availability:
Level Me Up! 1.0 for iPhone is only $1.99 (USD) and available exclusively through the App Store.
