[prMac.com] Novato, California - 7twenty7 LLC has announced the release of SpinArt+ 1.0 for all iPhone and iPod touch devices running iOS 6.0. SpinArt+, the follow-up to the hit iOS app SpinArt, expands on all the most popular features and introduces a unique algorithm that judges each player's creations and rewards them with tokens that unlock even more features.
SpinArt+ features a large library of over 60 colors, nearly 50 canvas shapes to paint on, and an advanced rendering engine that is optimized for the latest GPUs of the iPhone 5 and fifth-generation iPod touch. Players pick a shape, spin the canvas with their finger, and splatter paint to see amazing designs emerge in just a few seconds. Creating artwork has never been more fun and engaging.
Once a player completes their artwork, SpinArt+ uses its advanced art-judging algorithm to determine the quality of the artwork and awards tokens that can be then spent in the SpinArt+ Shop built into the app. Artwork can be saved to the player's personal SpinArt+ gallery or shared with friends via Facebook, Twitter, and email.
The custom graphics engine of SpinArt+ renders beautiful sparkling glitter on the player's canvas in any color they choose. On the iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, and fifth-generation iPod touch, the texture of the paint is rendered and lit according to the device's orientation. Players will be amazed by how realistic the paint texture appears on the latest iOS devices.
Players that enable SpinArt+'s Facebook integration will find bonus features such as token-multiplying events and notifications of the latest SpinArt+ news. Additionally, liking the SpinArt+ Facebook page will unlock an additional canvas shape for unlimited free use.
"The original SpinArt has been an runaway success and has millions of fans all over the world, so we are excited to finally provide all the loyal players with an all-new experience that employs all the advancements in iOS devices. The bigger and better screens, more powerful GPUs, and many technological additions to iOS have allowed us to create a beautiful, fun, and social art app with SpinArt+," said 7twenty7 founder Brian Smith.
