Turn your iPad into a foosball table with this interesting gadget

Yes, you read it right, now you can turn your iPad into a real foosball table! It is pretty cool to play foosball on your smartphone, but to play it on the iPad with a little foosball table, now that is a unique experience. People in New Potato Technologies are the one behind this interesting gadget which combines virtual applications and the real foosball table.

So, how does it work?

First things first, you have to meet some requirements before you can purchase this amazing foosball table, but don’t worry it is not complicated. The application which works on this stand is called the Classic Match Foosball, which is the name of the foosball table as well. You have to download the application to play on the table because this app is 100% compatible with the stand. Any other application might work, but not likely because the stand is made especially for this application. The application itself is FREE so I don’t see a problem with the download.

Now, let’s talk about the stand. There are two dimensions you can purchase because the first dimension is compatible with the iPad 1,2 and 3. The second stand, a newer model, is compatible with the iPad 3, 4 and iPad Air and Air 2.

Two sizes of foosball tables for iPad

Both of the tables look pretty much the same, except some minor design changes which don’t affect the game. With this foosball table, you will get 4 legs, 1 stand for the iPad, 8 rods and 2 scoring systems (one in red and one in blue). The table assembly is extremely simple; all you need to do is to attach the legs on the stand and insert the rods into 8 holes, just below the place where you put the iPad and you are done. On the bottom part of the table is 1 USB port, which means that you can plug the table and charge your iPad while you play the match. Forget about the empty battery notification during the most interesting part of the game.

When you assemble the stand for the iPads and place them on the stand, your iPad will look like the mini foosball table. On both longer sides of the iPad are 4 rods used to control the players in the game. On both shorter sides of the iPads are scoring systems so you will have to move the bean when you score – just like on the real foosball table.

The Classic Match Foosball application

The foosball application is really good. I like the fact that the rods and the players in the app move the same second so you really have a feeling like you are on the real table. Rods are extra sensitive so they register every move you make, no matter how small it is. Unfortunately, the rods in the reality and the rods in the game aren’t in line, they are moved a little bit, but that is something you can get used to after 3-4 matches.

This gadget is one excellent product which will keep you entertained for hours and I think it can be the perfect gift for every fooser on the planet.

How To: Optimize Your Drug Rehab Facility for Apple Watch

With the brand new Apple Watch set to release at the end of April, more and more mobile users will find themselves relying more than ever on Apple’s voice command function, Siri. Searching on the go is going to be easier than ever for the average user.

Siri focuses heavily on local searches – so if you’re a drug rehab facility that primarily serves your local community, it’s important to make sure you’re indexed in every way possible for users to find you. When it comes to developing a comprehensive SEO strategy, many companies neglect to optimize for search engines other than Google. But if you want to stand a chance against your competitors, you’ll need to keep Siri in mind. Read on for some tips to incorporate Siri and other local search functions into your digital marketing strategy.

Create Multiple Profiles

There are countless sites with profiles of local businesses listed, such as Localeze, Facebook, Yellow Pages, Foursquare, TomTom, Yelp, and Google+ Local. Both Google Maps and Apple Maps are constantly pulling data from these platforms, so it’s important not only to create a profile on each one but also to ensure these profiles are detailed and complete.

Every Apple Watch will be pre-loaded with Apple Maps, so check your business listing there. If your drug rehab facility is unlisted or is incorrectly listed, send a report to Apple to correct the problem as quickly as possible.

It’s equally important to optimize for Google, because many iOS users still prefer Google Maps. Set your facility up with Google My Business to make sure your Google+ profile is listed on both Maps and Search.

Optimize for Siri

There are a few different ways to optimize for Siri, including but certainly not limited to:

·      Creating a formal review program for clients and their families to report feedback. Both consumers and search engines gravitate toward reviews. They want to know that your facility places individual focus on each resident and that your staff treats every patient with respect. Reviews speak for themselves about quality of care – and Siri also readily indexes them. Encourage happy clients to leave reviews.

·      Optimizing for long-tail keywords. Siri users search with natural speech, which means their queries are longer and more specific. Build out keywords for voice searches and phrases to compensate for different ways people talk.

·      Using schema tags to add value to local searches. These tags help search engines – and, in turn, Siri – to understand web content because they make it easier to index. Schema tags list information like address, phone number, rankings, and operating hours of businesses.

Optimizing for Local Searches

Pricing for drug rehab SEO depends on the extent of your reach. Some local indexes are harder to break into than others, which also figures into how much it costs to optimize your SEO. Either way, the cost is well worth it – especially when it comes to optimizing for so many different search venues.
