New App to Revolutionise Photo Searches
We all have thousands of digital photos, but never look at them – and if we do, it’s nigh-on impossible to find that cherished shot.
Now there’s a solution – the SEE-VIEW 3D Image Browser for the iPhone/iPod Touch, which lets users feel their way through their image collections
SEE-VIEW uses cutting edge technology to give users a spontaneous, intuitive and fun way to navigate their photos. Instead of relying on keywords, the complex algorithms sort the photos by colour, shape and content – making the whole experience far more user-friendly.
Users can rotate, zoom, spin and select their photos in real time on a fully-realised three-dimensional display, making it easier than ever to search through photo libraries
Its developer, UK based See-Fish Technology, is convinced it will revolutionise the way photo libraries are organised and searched. It has been launched worldwide on the App Store and is currently being adapted for use on the iPad.
“Photos are meant to be seen, not filed away, and this is exactly what SEE-VIEW does – makes people’s photos visible again, quickly and easily,” said Richard Perdik, of See-Fish.
“There is nothing else like this on the App store. This is the first iPhone App to be based on research-level technology.
“It’s a fun way to view photos on the iPhone. The genius of it lies in the simplicity for the user – this will encourage users to look again at photo collections currently languishing on people’s hard drives.”
“When the concept was being developed, we didn’t think it could be done on the iPhone. The graphical user interface combined with the sheer level of maths involved makes this one of the most powerful iPhone Apps available.”
SEE-VIEW 3D Image Browser was developed by See-Fish Technology and is the first iPhone app of its kind to be based on research-level technology – the algorithms and 3-Dimensional interface push the iPhone platform to its limits.
SEE-VIEW 3D Image Browser currently works with Flickr picture libraries but Perdik said future revisions of the software will work with the iPad, and in an exciting new development, will allow access to the iPhone’s picture library without the need for 3rd party picture hosting sites.
