Name: Tabata Timer - 2.9  
Description: The Tabata Timer is a device that will help you maintain the proper interval during your Tabata workout. For those unfamiliar with Tabata, it is named after Izumi Tabata, PH.D. and former researcher at Japan's National Institute of Fitness and Sports. A Tabata workout is an interval training cycle that consists of a period of sustained, intense activity followed by a short period of rest. This cycle continues over a number of iterations to form an entire Tabata workout. The unique thing about the Tabata workout is that it is very short, with most intervals measured in seconds rather than minutes or hours. That standard Tabata workout consists of 8 cycles comprised of a 20 second intense workout followed by a 10 seconds rest period. If your workout happened to be running, you would run absolutely as fast as you possibly can in an all out sprint for 20 seconds. When your time is up, you would rest for 10 seconds. Repeat this cycle 8 times. It may sound easy, however you'll be surprised at just how difficult it is. Some studies suggest that a Tabata workout may actually be more beneficial than the standard cardio workout.

The difficulty with a Tabata workout is properly timing the exercise and rest intervals. This is where the Tabata Timer comes in. All of it's timing components are configurable by you to meet your workout requirements. The Tabata Timer gives you visual cues on the screen and sound cues that will overlay any music that you have playing to alert you to the various stages of your workout.

Keep in mind that the Tabata Timer is NOT a general purpose timer. It is specifically designed for and dedicated to Tabata workouts.

Name: iVent - 1.0  
Description: iVent is the app you've always needed to vent your frustration. Prior to iVent you had to vent your frustration on physical objects, often resulting in damage to the objects or yourself. Well, your wait is OVER. Pick up iVent and blow off some steam against the included target, or better yet, take a picture of something suitable and begin venting.

iVent 1.0 gives you the choice of 4 different vents. You may riddle your target with bullet holes, shoot it full of arrows, launch flaming fireballs, or splat it with multi-colored paintballs (paintballs are our personal favorites).

There is even a melee mode where you can have your device do a massive vent on your target while you sit back and watch. Take a look at the pictures below to get an idea of some of the things that you can do with iVent!!
