What if your iPhone and iPad could display content in 3D? Turns out, it can. For the first time, iPhone
users will be able to take actual 3D pictures with Snapily’s new 3D app, Snapily 3D, available worldwide today exclusively through the App Store. Snapily 3D allows iPhone 4 and iPad 2 owners to turn their iPhone or iPad into a 3D camera and shoot true stereoscopic 3D pictures. The app offers users several shooting and view modes (including gyroscope and anaglyph mode, for which 3D glasses are required) and also enables them to share their photos via email or on Flickr, Facebook and Twitter. Additionally, they can order 3D prints directly from their iPhone or iPad – for only $3.99/print.
The app is available for $1.99 in multiple languages in iTunes’ Photo & Video category. Snapily is also launching a new online service enabling 3D camera owners and 3D smartphone owners to quickly and affordably print high-quality 3D files (including MPO and JPS formats). The process is easy: after uploading their favorite 3D pictures to www.snapily.com/3Dprints, photo lovers can order their 3D prints directly from the website and have them shipped by Snapily within days. 3D prints start at only $3.99 each.
So, anyone giving it a whirl? Is it little more than a gimmick?
