Open Beta Announced For Razer Synapse: Stats & Heatmaps

Razer announces open beta for Razer Synapse: Stats & Heatmaps. Read on.

Razer, a world leader in connected devices and software for gamers, today announced the open beta for Razer Synapse: Stats & Heatmaps, a software feature within Razer Synapse. The new program allows users to collect data to track and share mouse and keyboard stats and how these critical gaming devices interact with their games.


Stats & Heatmaps is accessed through Razer Synapse, the cloud-based settings network for gamers. Razer pioneered the gaming software and gaming peripheral categories, and Razer Synapse: Stats & Heatmaps is the latest example of the company’s integration of the millions of connected devices it has shipped to-date. Available at no charge on an opt-in basis, gamers use the tracked data to analyze mouse clicks, key presses, distance traveled on a mousing surface and more.

The information can then be displayed as raw stats or as an overlay on an in-game screenshot showing “hot spots” to help gamers tweak and improve how they use their Razer gear in game. Those graphics can also be instantly shared to Facebook and Twitter from within the software.

“This is a fun and unique way that we can add value to our industry-leading products after purchase,” says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO. “We’re able to visually show gamers, empirically, how they interact with their favorite games. This information can help with anything from improving hotkey and mini-map usage to mouse mat selection and mouse DPI settings, in addition to the multitude of uses it could have for developers when they design game interfaces. Unfortunately it’s next to impossible to ensure compatibility with the thousands of games out there, so we’re counting on our millions of software users to help us test and expand game compatibility.”

Additional functionality for Razer Stats & Heatmaps, including actions-per-minute, will be released soon. For more information on today’s announcement, including a link to download, visit www.razerzone.com/synapse/stats. Game compatibility is not guaranteed for the open beta. Feedback on Razer Stats & Heatmaps can be submitted through the feedback system in Synapse.

Dead Giveaway Coming To The App Store for iOS Devices

A new app is coming to the App Store entitled Dead Giveaway which will give trivia lovers a chance to take on brain-teasing questions. How well do you think you know pop culture? Well find out with Dead Giveaway. Are you ready to learn more and start your adventure? Read on.

From the Press Release
A brand new mobile app is set to fly up the charts of the App Store when it’s launched later this week, with a set of brain-teasing quiz questions that will have even the most avid trivia lovers scratching their heads.


Dead Giveaway is a quiz game with a difference – the perplexing questions come with a number of clues to help players along the way, and the whole thing is hosted by a mysterious undead presenter, Zom B. Romero…spooky!

The app tests how well players know their pop culture. How many users does Facebook have? What is Homer Simpson’s favourite drink? Which company calls its new employees ‘Noogles’? Dead Giveaway tests just how much attention players really have been paying to the world around them, earning coins for their correct answers.

When players get the correct answer to a question, they get an amount of coins to add to their total. But if they need an extra hint to guess the next question and progress to the next level, they can use their accumulated coins as a bribe to the undead host for the right amount, players can acquire an extra clue to help them figure out the answer.

With a plethora of quiz games on the App Store nowadays, what makes Dead Giveaway different from the rest? For a start, the questions are 100% original and fun – there are no boring history questions or science-related topics that will bore children and adults alike. All of the questions feature relevant and interesting characters, companies, songs, films and other modern elements that the quiz world is short of.

The theme of the quiz is also great fun, with a distinct undead zombie as the lead host of the entire app. The quirky presenter offers insights into the correct answers every step of the way – and is first on hand with some sarcastic input whenever you need to pay for an extra clue!

Vijay Sharma of Dead Giveaway says, “I’m thrilled to be launching the brand new app on the App Store. It’s been a long time coming after extensive design work, and we’ve put plenty of research into every element – especially the questions, which are unlike any other quiz questions out there right now.”

He adds, “We hope quiz fans love the design, the questions and our lovable zombie quiz host, Zom B. Romero. We called him that in homage to famous zombie movie director George A. Romero and we think he’s spook-tacular!”
