10. PRESS RELEASE
Create High Quality 3D Cover Graphics on the Go
TBIT Design, Inc.is preparing for the launch of a revolutionary 3D Cover Graphics tool that all iPhone, iPod Touch, and
iPad owners can easily use.
LAS VEGAS, NEVADA - June 26, 2010
Internet marketers have plenty of options to set up their Internet marketing campaigns all the way down to the
graphics where these people can finally do the designing themselves. Design expertise is no longer required to design
certain graphics such as 3D boxes, eBook covers, and disc cases because there are software applications that make it
easy for computer users so long as the software supports their operating system. Currently, no mobile operating
systems support any of the available 3D cover graphics software. With Apple's App Store opening up exciting
opportunities for developers to contribute their own innovative apps, TBIT Design, Inc. decided to make a move in
developing a new software called eCover Go Cover Software.
eCover Go Cover Software basically brings all of the significant features of an ordinary cover design program to
Apple's portable devices. Since the iPhone, iPhone Touch, and iPad all use the same operating system, these devices
are compatible with eCover Go Cover Software. The three categories of devices all use the multitouch interface and
eCover Go takes full advantage of it so developers, authors, musicians, and artists can turn their 2D graphics into
attractive 3D works of art.
With over 200 cover types to choose from in five different categories, aspiring designers have the flexibility in
creating unique designs whether they are boxes, ring binders, price tags, book covers, or other 3D art. A connection
to the Internet also adds to the possibilities where newer designs can be retrieved from developer's site.
One of the main highlights of the application is how well it implements to the iPhone operating system (now called
iOS) to make it simple for people to create their first design. The application guides the user through seven steps so a
custom design is made properly. The first step begins when the application is launched and the “Generate Cover” is
tapped on. This button leads to the category selection screen which displays the five categories that each has a set of
related designs. As of June 2010, the main website claims that the category are the Book Cover, Software Box, DVD
Cover, CD Cover and Miscellaneous categories. Once a user selects a category, he or she is presented with a number
of designs that can be used as a basic for creating the 3D cover. From there, the user must decide which image he or
she wishes to use for the 3D cover. It is possible to load the image directly from the device's storage memory. If the
image is too big, the user can customize the image area so it is properly implemented on the chosen template.
eCover Go does the rest by taking advantage of the quick processing speeds to transform the plain image and plain
template into a 3D one. The image is usually 500x700 pixels, but it can also output to a maximum resolution of 72 DPI
in .PNG format complete with transparency. Users that are connected to the Internet with their mobile Apple device
can optionally send it directly via eMail.
eCover Go Cover Software can be found soon on the Apple App Store and all Apple iPhone 3G, 3GS, iPad, and iPod
Touch owners can try the software as long as they have iPhone OS 2.2 or greater installed. Those that purchased the
recently released iPhone 4 can install and use eCover Go Cover Software as well.
In addition to the Standard English language, eCover Go also comes in German. Although available on the Apple App
Store, interested customers can also see the eCover Go website to subscribe for updates and see the full details of
