Seadragon on iPhone

Microsoft has ported their excellent Seadragon to the iPhone.

It’s essentially a tile-based image viewer. That means, an image of infinitely large resolution can be shown, by supplying a set of image tiles for each resolution. Simple idea but extremely powerful. And in this case it is implemented very well — it refreshes very fast and really gives you the feeling that you can zoom in infinitely. I’m looking forward to viewing some of my own content in this format.
