[prMac.com] Montreal, Canada - SPMobile.net has released ShakingWeb 3.1, a new update to its innovative web browser with anti-shake algorithm. ShakingWeb aims to position itself as a reference in reading applications, helping users to make more comfortable the reading of web pages when they are in movement. The update takes the anti-shake to a new level thanks to the use of gyroscope on the iPad 2 and iPhone 4.
When user is reading with ShakingWeb, and its hands shakes (to left, right, up or down), the application feels the movements and applies a small movement in the opposite direction, to keep the viewable content as near as possible where user's eyes are. When the movement is to approach or going away, the application applies a sort of zoom in/out to keep the viewable content as much as possible the same size from the eyes perspective.
It's like car suspension system. It doesn't remove all the jumps/vibrations due to road irregularities, but give passenger a more comfortable trip with smooth movements. With ShakingWeb user will continue to see movements on the viewable content, but those movement will be smooth and slow, easy to follow with the eyes.
ShakingWeb was first released in january 2009. It was the really first web browser allowed by Apple to compete with Safari on the iPhone. At the moment, the available hardware on the iPhone 3G was not powerful enough to handle the shaking movements and at the same time, to modify the viewable content. With the release of iPhone 3GS, the experience got better with a more powerful CPU and new improvements in the core algorithm of ShakingWeb, and now, with the inclusion of the gyroscope found on the iPad 2 and iPhone 4, ShakingWeb is taking the experience to an astonishing new level.
