[prMac.com] Mesa, Arizona - LEARN2MAKE LLC, has announced that its newest iPhone app, Dollar Origami+ is now a Universal App which will run at full resolution on the Apple iPad. Previously the App was only optimized for smaller iPhone screens. With the new update, purchasers of the app can use it on either their iPhone or iPad at full resolution. The app is on sale this weekend only for $.99 (normally the app is priced at $2.99).
"The iPad allows users to fully immerse themselves in the realistic 3D animations provided in Dollar Origami+" states the president of LEARN2MAKE, Emilia Queiroz, "To let as many people as possible try out the app, we are offering it at $.99 for a limited time!" The App shows you how to take American Dollar Bills and fold them into a Duck, a Heart, a Butterfly, a Shirt & Pants, an Angel Fish, a Ring and a pair of Boots. The Boot instructions were recently added. A new shape will be added to the app every month.
The app has been met with positive reviews from some prominent app reviewers. Kirk Hiner from AppleTell wrote, "Dollar Origami+ is fun and easy to follow", and Bryan Wolfe from AppAdvice wrote "Dollar Origami+ is a terrific tool for those that want to learn the art of dollar bill origami."
Both PocketFullofApps and DownloadsAtoZ declared Dollar Origami+ the best Dollar Origami app on the App Store.
The app sets itself apart from other similar apps because of the use of state of the art, realtime 3D technology. The animated Dollar Bills in the app look very realistic. They are computer generated using photorealistic images from real Dollar Bills. The app allows the user to use finger gestures on the device's touch screen to rotate and zoom the animated Dollar Bill models while learning to fold the shapes. In order to make things easier, the animations are broken up into small animated steps showing one fold at a time. The small steps automatically repeat until the user taps a button to go to the next step. The user also has the ability to slow down, speed up or pause the animation at any time.
LEARN2MAKE will provide additional Dollar Origami shape instructions in future app updates, so if you enjoy the app make sure you keep it on your device. Open it often to check for new shapes.
