App News: Updates for 64 bit

As of today, all of the apps published by Island of Doom are compatible with 64-bit iOS devices!

Academy Professor was unavailable on the App Store for a few months, but it is back now with an updated interface.

Catapults with Foes wasn’t working properly due to Game Center changes. We’ve updated it so you should be able to battle your friends and foes once more!

App Invaders is a game we actually released in June 2014 but didn’t talk about much. It went through a lot of back and forth with Apple app review. The game isn’t exactly what we imagined at first, but it’s worth a try. Check it out!

Academy Professor 1.4 Now Available

Academy Professor just got even smarter! With the new 1.4 update, the best helper app for Hero Academy now includes a battle damage calculator. Put together matchups between units including powerups and effects to preview the outcome of battles. Record as many bookmarked calculations as you wish, both globally and game-specific.

Academy Professor is available on the App Store, is Universal for iPhone & iPad, and is still just 99 cents!

Note: version 1.4 also includes the awesome new icon you see above, designed by Brittney McIsaac. However, we neglected to add it to the App Store itself! Fear not, the icon will show up properly on your device, and we submitted a quick 1.4.1 update to add it to the App Store too.

Academy Professor 1.3 is out! What’s next?

It’s been a few days but we forgot to post! Academy Professor 1.3 is now available on the App Store, so go check it out.

Coming up in the next version of Academy Professor is a damage calculator. This feature will allow you to set up an attacker and defender and see how much damage each attack will do, how many turns it will take to knock out the defender, and so on. We want to make it cover every case the game can throw at you, and there’s quite a lot! Stay tuned and we’ll let you know when the update is coming and what to expect.

Coming soon: Academy Professor 1.3 with Shaolin team

Did you think we forgot about Academy Professor? Think again! As soon as the new Shaolin team appeared in Hero Academy, we were on the spot adding support for it to your favorite unit tracking and helper app.

There are a few more tricks up our sleeve, too. If you’ve got a shiny new iPhone 5 or iPod touch with the 4-inch Retina Display, you’ll have more room than ever to see your units. And even if you don’t have a new device, you’ll love the new interface enhancements like updated icons and shrinking empty rows so you can see more of the numbers that matter!

The 1.3 update has been submitted for Apple review and should be available in a little over a week. Until then, have a look at the new features and a teaser screenshot.

– Added support for the new Heroic Team: Shaolin!
– Increased clarity and quality of unit silhouette icons.
– Empty rows now automatically shrink so you can see more full and partially full rows.
– Improved performance of scrolling and count changes.
– iPhone 5 and iOS 6 support.

Academy Professor 1.2 Coming Soon

Academy Professor has been on the App Store now for a couple of months, and it seems that those who like it, like it a lot! In that span we’ve been working on some exciting new features. With the release of Hero Academy on Steam along with the Team Fortress 2 heroic team, it’s high time for an Academy Professor update!

The 1.2 update has now been submitted to Apple, and should be available within a week or two if all goes well. Here is what you can look forward to:

– Team Fortress 2 heroic team is now available.
– iCloud syncing: switch between your iPad and iPhone seamlessly!
– Improved UI: hero/item counts are now shown in a clear graphical fashion.
– Probabilities: see what the odds are of your opponent having an item in hand.
– Notes: keep quick notes about each game directly in Academy Professor.

And here’s a sneak peek of the new interface:
