Set your alarms for myDiary and new versions of myNotebook

Sydney, June 11, 2010

PRESS RELEASE: Nnooo announce the development of myDiary™ and three new versions of myNotebook™ for Nintendo DSiWare™.

myDiary is a new application in the extremely successful myLifeCollected range of software exclusive to Nintendo DSiWare. It allows users to organise their lives by keeping track of appointments, making daily journal entries and even setting daily alarms.

“myDiary is a great application for keeping your life organised.”, said Nic Watt, Creative Director, Nnooo. “Users pop open their Nintendo DSi™, tap on a day and jot down a note, to do or event. They can even add an alarm per day to remind them of really important events.”

Users can tap on a day to see any notes they have set, add alarms to keep track of important events or birthdays and customise their myDiary by changing the User Interface colour and Ink colour.  While the new versions of myNotebook add several new features and enhancements.

“myNotebook has proved much more popular than we anticipated.”, said Watt. “Many users have requested more pages to write on, the ability to export their pages so we thought we should try to give them something back.”

The three new colours are Carbon, Pearl and Tan. These versions will allow the user to save 128 pages, export their notes to the Nintendo DSi Photo album and unlock many new page styles. They also contain a new HUD (Heads Up Display) element which contains the current time, battery status and volume level.

myDiary and the three new versions of myNotebook are planned for release between July and September 2010.

Nnooo Knows Games

Seeing video game consoles stacked next to work desks indicates a strong love for gaming, even if the system revolves around research. Nic Watt, CEO and creative director of Nnooo Studios, just used his Nintendo 64 to check out the polygon count on character models since the system specs parallel Nintendo DS and DSi.

The latter handheld serves as a home to most of Nnooo’s releases — from Pop Plus Solo to myNotebook and the recently-released my Postcards. It is no wonder why Watt continues to explore the hardware, specifically in regard to DSi. He wants “to make sure that [Nnooo Studios is] exploring the best features of the particular platform and making the best use of them because [he] thinks people buy a DSi because of the features that it offers…” (more…)

Journey To Nnooo Studios

Location: Downtown Sydney.

I jump off one ferry and briskly walk toward another boat on the wharf. Skyscrapers line the horizon to my left while the soothing water of the Tasman Sea sits to my right.

I hop on the Balmain East ferry a minute or so before the boat’s planned departure. I ask a woman fitted in a Sydney Ferries polo if this is the right boat to jump on, and she grunts in an approving manner.

Once on the ship, I choose to plop down on a red cushioned seat with no one else in the aisle. A woman behind me continues to make crackling noises with a brown sack lunch that irritates the headache I’ve been fighting off. But no matter, I’m more focused on the journey ahead and can’t wait to sit down with Nic Watt, creative director and CEO of Nnooo Studios. (more…)
