[prMac.com] Seattle, Washington - Ubermind, Inc., the makers of iLightr, one of the most popular lighter simulation applications available on the iPhone, today unveiled a version of their application for the Android platform. With support for the iPhone, iPod touch, and now Android, iLightr creates the most realistic virtual lighter experience available on any mobile device.
"We didn't just take the iPhone version and port it over to Android," said Jean-Guy Speton, Lead Developer for the Android version of iLightr. "This is a complete re-implementation, making for an interactive flame that is more photo realistic than anything else out there."
Rather than a static image or stale, unchanging video loop of a flame, iLightr combines high-resolution OpenGL graphics (designed by an Academy Award winning special e!ects artist), dynamic sound e!ects, and accelerometer support to create the only truly interactive lighter simulation available on the Android platform.
