You Gotta See This! 1.1

Category: Photography
Price: $1.99 -> $.99, Version: 1.1 (iTunes)


Ever been at a concert and wished your friends could experience the atmosphere with you? Ever been on a mountain top and wished your family could experience the same view? Ever thought "they've got to see this!" but simply taking a picture was not enough? Share your experiences with unique images taken in a unique way with your iPhone 4 (required) and "You Gotta See This!"

Simply start the recording in "You Gotta See This!", swipe the scene up, down, left and right with the camera and share the image created by one of the five amazing themes on Twitter, Facebook or by email. Or simply save it to your camera roll for later presentation. (See a short tutorial video at our website.)

The app creates collages of images that you take by slowly moving the camera around in 3D space. The resulting images are somewhat similar to what is called "panography" or "Hockneyesque" (after the artist David Hockney).

"You Gotta See This!" uses the iPhone 4 gyroscope to determine the camera orientation while you record and positions the images it takes accordingly on a flat surface to create the spacial collages.

Here are 5 reasons why you would want to get "You Gotta See This":

1. It is a fun new creative way to take photos.
2. Your friends and family get to share your most amazing experiences much deeper than with normal photos.
3. It's all the rave on twitter. (Look for #seethis)
4. It costs less than a tall Cappuccino at your favorite café but you'll enjoy it much longer.
5. You get to show off your brand new iPhone 4's unique gyroscope feature.

You Gotta See This! requires an iPhone 4 or an iPod touch (4th generation). It will not run on iPhone 3GS, 3G, iPod touch (3rd generation) and earlier models.

To get the highest possible resolution of the collages, save the collage to the camera roll and sync it to your computer. The "Photos" app shows only a small preview of the original 4 megapixel image which is actually saved.

What's New

• Improved support for iPod Touch 4th generation.
• Increased size of the video preview and the width of the border while recording. (The border goes first yellow and then red to indicate that you are moving the camera too fast.)
• Better progress reporting while rendering the final output photo.
• Most crashes reported were related to the device running out of memory. To improve this, memory usage has been optimized and recording length has been restricted. A progress bar at the top of the recording screen shows the remaining recording time.
• Fixed issues where the camera could hang or stop displaying.
• Increased size of record/stop button so it's easier to hit.
• Lots of other fixes to improve responsiveness and stability. More great new features planned for the next update.
