App DescriptionRome HD is the first iPad application in the world to use SurroundView (TM). SurroundView is a new generation of interactive photo technology developed by ComPart Multimedia for its ItalyGuides.it.
The reverse of a panoramic process, where the camera rotates on it axis, SurroundView produces a multi-perspective view by rotating the camera around the subject. A unique and innovative means of exploring the treasures of Italy, with the touch of a finger, users can walk around a fountain or a monument of ancient Rome.
Designed specifically to exploit the dazzling colors and resolution of the New iPad retina display, Rome HD for iPad allows viewers to experience expert, art and architecture photography with a visceral impact that has been, heretofore, unattainable.
* 400 high quality images compatible with the New iPad retina display
