[prMac.com] Hamburg, Germany - Independent developer Claus Zimmermann announced today that the new version of the App TieSight is now fully supported by the iPhone 5. Since TieSight uses the front-facing camera to show you an image of yourself with superimposed tying instructions, the bigger screen of the iPhone 5 makes tying a tie even easier.
TieSight uses augmented reality to help you tie a tie. The App shows you how to tie the perfect knot using an image of yourself on your iPhone, iPad or iPod. All you have to do is to bring yourself into the right position and follow the instructions which TieSight will give you. Since you need to have both hands free while tying the knot, you can control TieSight with sound, just make some noise (e.g. a loud word, a cough or whistle) and TieSight will proceed.
"I am extremly pleased with TieSight running on the smaller screen of older iOS devices such as the iPhone 4 or the iPod touch 4th generation. But running on the bigger screen of the iPhone 5, the App looks even more impressive." says Claus Zimmermann the developer of TieSight. "As all tying instructions have been optimized for the iPhone 5, users really benefit from the bigger screen of their new device".
