[prMac.com] Portland, Oregon - Founded in 2008 to provide top quality mobile applications, Fling Soft today announces the availability of House of Horrors 1.0 for the iPhone, iPod touch, and the iPad. House of Horrors provides access to over 75 classic public domain horror-themed movies that can be streamed over 3G or Wi-Fi and also support AirPlay to your AppleTV.
"Users have been asking us repeatedly for smaller, generic specific versions of our flagship application, Movie Vault", says Jeremy Krall, Fling Soft co-founder. "It allows us to better assort the content for users and provides a much simpler, manageable experience."
House of Horrors also contains all the great features found in the company's flagship application, Movie Vault. Users can browse via categories, search by title, director, or actor, and even add films to a queue so they can easily mark films to watch later. Browsing by category is as easy as swiping left and right or using a quick selector in the menu bar. Watching a movie costs nothing additional and is as simple as tapping the cover art.
The applications are also fully updatable from the server so as new content becomes available, it will immediately be broadcast to all front-end applications. Additionally, the same CDN-based video streaming architecture is used for every application meaning users have immediate access to all content regardless of their connection speed.
"On the design side, one of the most exciting part of releasing these genre specific packs is the ability to have very custom user interface to go along with it", says Mike Dewey, Fling Soft co-founder. "Now the app can feel like the genre, which makes things very enjoyable both as a designer as well as from a user perspective.
