    Greetings mobitoggers!

    Photospector, the next app from The 11ers, the developers of Glaze is finishing Beta testing and getting ready for launch. Our Beta testers, including a number of hardcore mobitoggers, have contributed a number of key feature ideas that improved our keyword tagging and smart search albums.

    My latest blog post covers some of the game engine technology we've used as the foundation for Photospector. Using the GPU for image display and processing allows Photospector to view ginormous images at full-resolution and enables real-time color adjustments.

    You can also check out our Roadmap blog post to vote on the features you want in the next release. We will be implementing features as requested by our users, so get your votes in or email us your ideas for features.

    Thanks again for all your feedback!

    Thanks for all the great Beta testing feedback, Lzed. I'm definitely putting predictive text entry for tags in to our first update thanks to your feedback!

    I use your app a lot these days, I like how fast things are and being able to do multiple tags at once has really worked out well. I am trying to break it but so far with the last couple builds I have been unable to :) always a good thing!. I will be looking forward to future additions.

    You MobiToggers will love this app! Dan and Gilles have produced another absolute winner.
    I too am trying to find fault with the app but am as of yet unsuccessful.

    It is an amazing app!

    Nice one Dan, thank you for sharing the update with your dedicated fans here on MobiTog... ;)

    It really is great to witness such awesome interaction between Developers and end users, especially when they are both part of the MobiFamily... :notworthy:

    We are all looking forward to seeing the new app on its release and will be happy to share a few PromoCodes with your family, although preferably not in open forum so un-named Guests can steal them... :D

    Here's a new blog entry I just posted about Photospector's support for ginormous gigapixel images:

    http://www.the11ers.com/photospector/gigapixels

    There are some more usage videos on the PRESS page of the website if you want to check out what it looks like to use the app.

    Photospector is tentatively scheduled for launch on July 17th!
    (Pending final approval from Apple.)

    I can't wait until the entire MobiTog community has access to our app. Like iColorama, we're going to let the community drive our development efforts. So please let us know what you think and what sorts of features you'd like to see us add.

    Thanks again to the MobiTog folks for providing this forum for developers to communicate with artists. We really value your feedback!

    Minor update: Photospector was just APPROVED by Apple (yay!) and the launch is now confirmed for Friday, July 19th (two days later, just to give a bit more time to coordinate the press).
