[prMac.com] Perth, Australia - Pixelglow Software today announced Instavue, a new Mac OS X application. Instavue is a companion application to Instaviz, the graph sketching app for the iPhone. Instavue enables Instaviz users to print and export graphs from their Mac OS X desktop.
What is Instavue?
Instavue extracts the Instaviz graphs from the user's iPhone or iPod Touch backups. The user can then choose to print the graphs or export them to any of these vector and bitmap formats: BMP, GIF, Graphviz, JPEG, JPEG2000, OpenEXR, Photoshop, PDF, PNG, PostScript, Quickdraw, Silicon Graphics, SVG, TGA or TIFF.
What is Instaviz?
Instaviz is an iPhone/iPod Touch app that turns roughly sketched shapes and lines into beautifully laid-out graphs. The app is great for drawing mind maps, concept maps, flowcharts and graph theory, or just simple note-taking and brainstorming.
Despite being in the App Store for little over a month, Instaviz has already garnered 8 five-star reviews there. 148apps, the popular App Store review site, recently rated Instaviz 4 out of 5 stars.
Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) and iTunes 8.0 or better.
Pricing and Availability
Instavue may be downloaded and installed for free. For further details about this release, please visit the Instavue website.
