At February’s Photo Hack Day 2 in New York City, the Friends of The Web crew built an app, Jittergram, that allows people to create 3D stereograms right from their smart phones. The app, according to the Friends, has missing features, including the inability to conveniently save the stereograms to a smart phone. No matter: as of this week, Jittergram has been downloaded more than 250,000 times.
According to the Friends of The Web blog:
Jittergram was eventually approved by Apple and was released in the app store on March 26th, exactly one month after we presented it at PHD2. … On April 5th, Jittergram was featured in the App Store and was downloaded 6,299 times. The next day it was posted to the App Store’s Facebook page and was downloaded 19,911 times. This week, six months later, it is featured as an “Amazing on iPhone 5” app, and we have just passed 250,000 total downloads, which far exceeds our expectations for the humble app. [more]
Andy Mangold writes in the blog that, initially, he and the rest of the Friends of The Web team were unsure about charging a price for the app before finally deciding to release Jittergram for free.
In July, Friends of The Web released its Wikiweb app, which costs $4.99, for the iPhone and iPad.-30-
