Awesome Optical Illusions HD
By Archibald Industries
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Containing over 500 very cool optical illusions. Easily navigate between all the illusions to admire the weirdness that happens between the eyes and the brain. There are three main types: literal optical illusions that create images that are different from the objects that make them, physiological ones that are the effects on the eyes and brain of excessive stimulation of a specific type and cognitive illusions where the eye and brain make unconscious inferences. See if you can tell which illusions are used throughout this app!
Note: All images are stored locally so no internet connection is required and the images load fast.
More images will be added in free updates.
This could have been cool but it looks like a lazy port from the iPhone. All of the images are iPhone resolution with a massive blank border all around. Calling this an iPad version and "HD" is pretty deceiving.
The concept is great, a library of optical illusions. The execution is poor and the interface is bare bones. If you are looking for something iPad specific pass on this one. It has promise, if the before mentioned issues are addressed it would be worth a second look. Hopefully a version 2.0 will be better.
Some simple descriptions of each image would be nice as well.
The optical illusions pictures are great but the app would be better and much more effective if the picture took up the entire screen instead of just a just a small portion of it.
