App of the Week: Find My Car

By Dr. Shannon VanHorn, Director of Distance Learning and Faculty Development

I was in Minneapolis at a meeting, when I parked my car in a parking ramp. I thought I paid attention where I parked my car, and when the meeting concluded (at 2 p.m. on a Friday), I thought “Great! I can get out of downtown Minneapolis before rush hour out the cities beings!”

One problem.

I could not find my car.

I knew I was not far from the elevator to the door, but didn’t see my vehicle. So I clicked the panic button (yes, the annoying horn).  I HEARD my car, but didn’t see it. Suddenly I was panicked.

After 20 minutes of wandering, it dawned on me that my vehicle was on a different level. Ten minutes later I was on my way out of the cities.

Later that day, I downloaded MyCar Locator.

This app uses the GPS position of your car (or other location you give it) and shows you where it is on a map. It helps you navigate to your vehicle. You can take a picture of your parking spot, send it to friends or family members, and even enter notes about where you parked.

This app is free for both Android and iOS systems, although there are a few ads that may show in the app. If you wish to be ad free, you can purchase that version for about $1.25.

 So if you are one to often forget where you parked, this app can save you time from wandering the parking lot, especially on a hot summer’s day or a freezing cold wintery night.

Menu: April 24th – April 28th

Monday: Nacho Hot Dog Bar, Baked Beans, Doritos, with all the fixings. Chef Salad Wrap, Knefla Soup, Chunkey Monkey Brownie.

Tuesday: Sloppy Joe, Garlic Roasted Potato, Buttered Corn, Imperial Fried Rice and Oreo seven layer bars.

Wednesday: Beef Chili, Chicken Lo Mein, Hamburger Goulash, Mixed Vegetable, BLT Sandwich, Brownie Pizza.

Thursday: Crispy Chicken Salad, Garden Vegetable Penne Pesto, Chicken Cordon Blue, Long Grain Wild Rice, Steamed Broccoli, Homemade Twix Bar.

Friday: Made to order deli bar with fresh baked sub buns, Chicken Tortilla Soup, Teriyaki Chicken Stir Fry,  Four Cheese and Bacon Mac & Cheese, Lemon Cheesecake bars w/ Strawberry topping.

The Best Way to Buy PC Games

By Courtney Bothun

While there are several ways to buy PC games, one stands out above the rest – Steam. As most of our readers know, Steam is a software program which sells and manages digital games and their communities. There are several programs like this, but Steam is the best known, and for good reason. When choosing a PC gaming platform, there are several things to consider.

The biggest concern for most gamers is selection. There’s no use jumping on board with a client that only has a few games for sale, after all. Steam wins big in this category, with a catalog of thousands of games including new releases, indie games, and early access titles. A huge variety of developers sell their games on Steam, from brand-new indie devs to major companies like Bethesda and Rockstar. Steam is also a pioneer in virtual reality (VR) technology, and their catalog includes a rapidly growing number of VR-compatible games.

The next thing to consider is price. For everyday prices, Steam usually in the middle ground. There are some cheaper options, like Green Man Gaming or Humble Bundle, but their selection is pretty limited in comparison to Steam’s. However, Steam’s sales make the platform competitive, price-wise. Steam sales take several forms – weeklong deals, weekend deals, and major sales that apply huge discounts to games over the course of a week or two. These major sales happen two to four times a year and are treated as holidays of their own by many gamers.

The last thing to think about is integration. This is a big topic, which includes several aspects, but we’ll focus on two. Firstly, community integration. Steam provides community services such as discussion boards, game guides, reviews, and friends lists all within its client. It also provides a framework for user-created communities and groups. Secondly, there’s mod integration. Modding Steam games is, for the most part, very easy. The Steam Workshop allows users to download and install mods to their Steam games automatically, and keeps those mods up to date for them. No other PC platform has integrated modding as well as Steam has.

So, although there are a lot of ways to buy PC games, if you’re looking for the best of the best, download Steam. For more information, online catalogs, and client downloads, visit http://www.steampowered.com.

App of the Week: Sleep Cycle

By Dr. Shannon VanHorn, Director of Distance Learning and Faculty Development

We are entering the last three weeks of classes, with finals after that.  While many of you will be spending late nights studying and working on projects, it is also important to get a good night’s sleep each night.

Sleep Cycle will help you achieve this goal.

Sleep Cycle, created by the Swedish company Northcube, is an app that monitors your sleep cyles, waking you up gently in the morning at the most optimal time to help reduce that “I’m exhausted” feeling when you have to get up.

Using the accelerometer in your iPhone, the app monitors your movement to determine which sleep cycle you are experiencing, awaking you in the lightest part of your cycle (within 30 minutes of when you set your alarm.  It also provides graphs and statistics of your sleep cycles the night before.

Still want 10 more minutes of sleep? No problem! By tapping your phone, it works as a sleep button.

You also have the choice of several sounds in which to wake you.

This app is available for both iOS and android platforms, although there is also a Power Nap app that are available for just iOS platforms. Power Nap (also $1.99) allows you to take power naps in the afternoon without drifting into a deep sleep, yet leaving you refreshed an awake.

While both of these apps cost $1.99 a year to access they are worth it to get a good night’s sleep!

App of the Week: Countdown Timer

By Dr. Shannon VanHorn, Director of Distance Learning and Faculty Development

It’s week 12 in the semester! Just six weeks left and then finals. For some of you, the semester has probably gone quickly. For others, it may seem like it’s dragging on.

Countdown Timer is actually that—a timer that countdowns the time to a big event, be it a new baby, a wedding, a birthday, a vacation, and even the end of a semester!

This app is available not only for iOS, Android, and Window users, but also as a web page you can bookmark for easy retrieval. Or you can place the URL on a website, too.

Once you go to the website or download the app, you can choose the font you wish for the title, along with the date and time down to seconds if you wish.

I suggest not putting in the place of the event.  I tried typing in Valley City and Valley City State University and it took me to a list of more than a hundred places to choose from that had the word “Valley” in it somewhere, but not “our” Valley City.

So as you are looking forward to that special day, be it graduation, the end of a job, or Christmas, the Countdown Timer will help you count down the weeks, days, hours, minutes, and seconds toward towards that big event!
