I posted on this app yesterday and the fact that Apple is refusing to allow its developers to upload images in a manner that reflects the application and its functionality, thereby limiting the developers ability to attract customers. At the time I was reporting simply on the issue but I thought it might be worth while to actually try the application myself. I did, and it’s kind of cool.
Using the app is exceptionally straightforward. After Starting the app you tap on the camera icon. You then move the iPhone ever so slightly and take a second shot. The app then lays one image over the other and creates a single image from it that offers two slightly different perspectives, thereby creating the illusion of 3-D.
It’s a quick process, it’s an easy process, and it actually does create an image that has a really interesting effect.
In addition, the application lets you fine-tune the image after it’s been created by switching the degree to which one image is laid over the other. You can move the image time and again until you get just enough movement to create the best optical illusion.
From there, you can save your picture, post it to My Space (Not Facebook????), e-mail it (the images first uploaded to a private drop folder) or save it as a two-dimensional picture.
Finally, instructions for the application suggest to other ways to have fun with it. The first is to significantly move the camera between the two pictures thereby creating a truly funky picture. The second is to have the two shots show every object in the picture in exactly the same position except one — the result is that specific area of the picture changing while everything else stays the same. It’s easier to show it and explain it —
In all, it’s actually an interesting, fun photography app that does exactly what’s promised.
Value: Medium. At $2 it is high if you use it a lot, less so if you don’t

Who Is It For: People who like paying with their iPhone images to do neat unusual things

What I Don’t: My Space?? and not Facebook??
