[prMac.com] Portland, Oregon - Motivated Apps, LLC, today announces the next stage of helping people look better in public with version 1.2 release of their Looky Here! Digital Mirror application. Exclusively for iPhone 4 users, Looky Here! is a "Digital Mirror" which uses the built-in front facing camera and the iPhone interface to bring the mirror to life. Users can zoom, rotate and hold their live image for a closer look. Looky Here! now features a built in timer to help users capture a full length mirror image for closer inspection.
"After we started our 'Get the Green Out!' campaign, we realized that getting lettuce out of people's teeth was not enough. We also wanted to help them get themselves together before going out in public. We looked around and thought, OK how can we improve Looky Here! to help people get a quick full body makeover before they go to their next interview, date, dinner, dancing, drinking, frolicking, lunch, breakfast, night out, morning out, tractor pull, baseball game, soccer game, tennis match, psychic reading, beer making, wine tasting, outdoor concert, rock climbing, spelling bee, boogie boarding, wind surfing, site seeing, bowling and all those other events that people do?" said Richard Clem, Motivated Apps founder and president. "I said, 'Hold it Right There!' People need to look good when they go bowling? I'm not sure about that one, but if that's what will help people bowl better, who am I to argue?"
"So with this version of Looky Here! we've added a hold timer, which will help people who can't get to a full length mirror, to capture a full body image of themselves before entering the public eye." said Mr. Clem. "Simply place the phone on a solid surface, start the timer and step back. When the timer expires it will hold the mirror image for closer inspection. It might just be what people need to make any wardrobe adjustments before that unexpected hoedown or whatever event they may be headed to."
A digital mirror is different from a regular mirror. With a regular mirror, if you want to look at something closer in the mirror, normally one would move closer to the mirror. With Looky Here! you can simply magnify the image using the same pinch gestures you use on the iPhone. To return the mirror to normal, you shake the phone. Capture a mirror image by tapping on the iPhone screen or by using the built in hold timer.
