Currently available for download at Apple's iTunes Appstore, this software, developed by Australia's Glentwood pty ltd, a private company based in South East Queensland, provides users the ability to animate any given part of a photo on the iPhone or iPod touch into true 3D animation driven by the actual movement of the device.
"Apple recently declined a similar software known as iBoob on the grounds that it was indecent because that application seemed to be geared toward a particular part of a woman's anatomy," explains Glentwood's Jon Atherton, but with over a million views of their YouTube demo video, there appeared to be a huge demand for wobbling boobs on the iPhone or iPod touch.
Whereas iBoob was developed with seemingly limited scope, the new Wobble application will allow users to apply "wobbles" to any part of any photo be it breasts, arms, legs etc. It's completely up to the user to determine what they choose to animate, and no images are included in the download.
For only $.99 (USD) iPhone or iPod touch owners can purchase and download the Wobble application via the iTunes Appstore and a demo is available at http://chillifresh.com/wobble/ or http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=FWC_R3-qC31
After opening the Wobble application the user can select a photo to animate and position the round Wobble region overlays onto the photo. Then the fun begins. Shaking the unit up and down, side to side, or even in a circular path will cause anything in the chosen region to move as if it was really reacting to the movement (let your imagination run a little bit here, and you can see the advantages, and all for under a buck).
Wobble will work on photos either taken by the user, or saved from the Internet as well as those received via email.
"Begun by the ill-fated iBoobs, and to a lesser degree the iFarts application, we at Glentwood are surprised by the attention these sorts of applications are getting," adds Atherton. With over 5000 copies sold in the first four days, Wobble is well on the way to being a huge hit. In comparison, the recent number one hit at the Appstore, iFart, sold around half that number in their first four days, so could it be that animated parts of a photo (again it could be a shaking leg or a wobbling - well you get the picture) appeal more to iPhone and iPod touch users?
The developers are planning a number of new features in coming weeks which will be released as a free upgrade, including Auto Wobble - a marvelous Hands Free Kit, which while entertaining, is not recommended for use while driving.
The Northern Hemisphere might be in the middle of winter, but on the Gold Coast of Australia the developers of the new Wobble application have been hard at work building wobbling software. Beta testing the software would clearly have been an arduous task had it not been for the glorious beach nearby which provided appealing subject matter! We can assume that testing went swimmingly well.
Glentwood pty ltd is a small private Australian company based in South East Queensland. Glentwood was established in late 2008 to build iPhone and iPod touch applications. The iPhone platform enables small developers to take advantage of the massive software sales infrastructure built by Apple. Glentwood is comprised of a small number of staff and is forecast to have sales in excess of two million USD for calendar year 2009.
