A new App for the iPhone popped up in the Apple Store over the weekend. While this is not normally big news, as there are apps popping up all the time, what makes this one different is that it was developed by Microsoft.

 

The new App called Seadragon Mobile is a mobile version of Seadragon used for Microsoft's Photosynth. Photosynth allows a user to create a simulated 3d Panorama of a group of images and is pretty cool software.

 

Seadragon Mobile will allow mobile users to deep zoom images from a mobile device.

Microsoft launches app for the iPhone

Engineers in the company's Live Labs have released the company's first application for Apple's popular smartphone--even before making it available on Microsoft's own mobile platform.

 

Seadragon Mobile, which was added to Apple's App Store on Saturday, is a free image-browsing app that allows users to quickly "deep zoom" images while online and is intended to demonstrate what is possible with a mobile platform.

 

Seadragon is the backbone for Microsoft's Photosynth, which allows users to take a grouping of photographs and stitch them together into a faux 3D environment.
