[prMac.com] London, United Kingdom - Addictive is pleased to announce Meeting Magician 1.2 for iOS, a fun app that makes meetings fun again. Meeting Magician lets you play buzzword bingo when the powerpoint bores get going. It gives you a word of the day to slip into the presentation or the chat with the boss. You can also find out just how much money is being wasted in a meeting with our calculator, as well as schedule a fake call to give you a reason to leave. You can share all this on Facebook and Twitter too.
Does your heart sink every time you get invited to another meeting? Are your days filled with long meetings that should be short? And are some of them totally unnecessary? Having spent 3 years in a C suite job at advertising giant Mindshare/WPP - either in meetings, on conference calls or on planes, I reckoned people needed some way to ease the pain of this way of life. Red wine works really well on planes but oddly enough is frowned on in meetings (although it has helped me through a few conference calls).
So this app lets you play buzzword bingo when the powerpoint bores get going. It gives you a word of the day to slip into the presentation or the chat with the boss - and you can share your success story with your friends on Facebook and Twitter.
You can find out just how much money is being wasted in a meeting with our calculator - estimate the average hourly rate of the people in the meeting or on the call, key in how many people are taking part and the calculator shows you second by second how much is being wasted. You can share the excess stories on Facebook and Twitter - we expect our friends at Goldmans and Credit Suisse etc to get quite competitive over this.
And when you think you really can't take a meeting, set up a lifesaver fake call - just programme the app with the time you want to be called and choose who you want to the call to be from - and hey presto - your phone rings and you have the perfect reason to escape.
