Movosity is an iPhone drawing application that allows users to draw in three dimensions. Shapes are created by moving the device around in physical space, rather than by drawing on the screen with your finger, and movement is recorded and displayed. The drawing can be viewed from different angles simply by adjusting the orientation of the phone.
In additionÂ drawings can be submitted to the online gallery, where they will be viewable both from the website and from the in-app gallery. Your device will be assigned a unique number, allowing you to go back later and see the drawings you have created.
The app is not too dissimilar to AirPaint that usesÂ built-in accelerometer to estimate how you move the iPhone when painting a stroke in air and the stroke is then displayed on screen. It is great to seeÂ Movosity pick up on exactly the comments we made aboutÂ AirPaint including the three dimensional possibilities as well as social/sharing features.
Movosity is beautifully crafted and probably first ever attempt to explore iPhone’s accelerometer capability spatially. I am very impressed and I am sure you will be too.
