Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
This app has been optimized in every way for the new iPad 3 and its colossal Retina display. It offers 180 beautiful photographs from a cruise that sailed from Venice to Istanbul and back. The images are presented here in full iPad 3 Retina display resolution. These images will exquisitely reveal the resolving power of your new iPad 3 display, and make crisp wallpaper for your devices' lock and home screens. Pictures are from and around:
• Venice, Italy
• Istanbul, Turkey
• Mykonos, Greece
• Kotor and Perast, Montenegro
• Split, Croatia
• The wonderful ancient ruins of Ephesus, Turkey
• Masterpieces from the Gallerie Dell'Accademia in Venice, Italy.
Each section of photographs is introduced by maps which give the viewer a clear sense of where you're going, in relation to surrounding countries and geography. Informative text is provided for each image. In the case of the masterpieces from the Gallerie Dell'Accademia, commentary is included for most of them from the "Treasures of Venetian Painting, The Gallerie Dell'Accademia" by Giovanna Scire Nepi, 1991, ISBN 88-7743-103-2.
This app is fully optimized for Retina iPads and the new iPhone 5. All graphical elements are at full Retina iPad resolution, and the app takes full advantage of the enlarged iPhone 5 screen size.
You can now send physical post cards from within this app to anyone anywhere in the world. The picture you choose (from this app or from your own Photos library) will be on the front of the postcard. You enter a message and recipient address, and the postcard is printed and mailed.
This app can entertain in several ways. It's fun to flip through its 4-up browsing screens, and to watch 4-up or 1-up slideshows. Try stretching the images to fill their quadrant (4-up) or screen (1-up), both in portrait and in landscape orientation. And do search through to find and make your favorite wallpaper images.
An exclusive feature of all Pixels By Paul apps is their ability to size wallpaper to fit within wallpaper safe areas. Safe areas are the central areas in the Lock and Home Screens that are not blocked by the status bar, date/time bar, unlock slider, and dock. With our apps, you can fit pictures to safe areas while keeping their original aspect (the ratio of height to width is maintained), or you can stretch or squeeze them to completely fill the safe areas.
Stretched images have a reflection at the bottom, so that they fade smoothly behind the bottom controls. You can also wrap images, as in a gallery wrap print. Wrapped images keep their aspect ratio (remain un-stretched), but any surrounding black bars (used to keep the image in the safe area) are filled in with reflections of the image.
You can make such safe area wallpapers from the pictures in this app, and you can do this with your own pictures.
This app requires no internet* connection to run. Everything you need is included inside this application. And it's a universal app! Run it on your iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch, all for one low price.
A pictorial help file is included, with usage tips and disclosure of hidden features.
Order large prints of these photos, unmounted or mounted, at discounted prices.
This app requires iOS 4.3 or higher.
* An internet connection is needed only to send postcards.
