A few months ago I posted about the Seadragon browser that was published for iPhone allowing users to browse Photosynth and Virtual Earth on the Apple mobile device – Virtual Earth Via Seadragon on iPhone. Well, now there’s a new iPhone application made just for browsing Photosynths call iSynth and it’s available for download from the iStore now.
iSynth brings all the eye candy of Photosynth to the user experience of iPhone making it a fantastic way to explore synths. You can search, browse and view synths right on your phone effortlessly. The application was developed outside of Microsoft by Greg Pascale, but we wholeheartedly think the application is great!
So, how does it work? I ripped some content from Greg’s web site to explain:
Tip: While using iSynth, for a quick description of what a button does, simply hold it down for a moment and a description will appear (unless you've turned off the "Description Labels" option in the settings menu). If you hold any button for longer than a moment, it will not press when you release it.
Show/hide the full menu
Quit the current synth and go back to the selection screen
Jump to the next 3D group of connected photos
Enter slideshow mode
Enter orbit mode
Exit orbit mode
Toggle point cloud-only view (show/hide photos)
Go to the about/help screen
Go to the settings menu
Rotate the screen
Show/hide cameras (in arc ball mode)
Not much needs to be said about slideshow mode; the controls are fairly self explanatory. To leave slideshow mode and go back to normal mode, press the stop button.
Go download iSync for iPhone.
