Eye Glasses, Fairy Trails come to iPhone
Freeverse has released two new apps for the iPhone and iPod touch, Eye Glasses and Fairy Trails. Eye Glasses is designed to work with the iPhone 3G or 3GS, and turns the mobile device into a magnifying glass. The app uses the iPhone's auto-focusing camera to display text or imagery in 2x, 4x, 6x, or 8x magnification. In order to use the feature simple activate the app while holding the mobile phone roughly five inches away from the area that needs to be magnified, the large print will then show up on the iPhone's display screen for easier viewing.
Fairy Trails is a game that works with both the iPhone and iPod touch, and uses the mobile devices built-in camera and compass to delivery a fairy tale style atmosphere through the display screen. The game has players shake the iPod or iPhone to power the magical creature detector, then scan their surroundings for colourful butterflies, fireflies or fairies. When users spot a creature they can double tap on the display screen on-top of the creature, in order to collect them into jars.
Both apps can be purchased directly from the App Store, and are priced at $3 for Eye Glasses or $2 for Fairy Trails.
