Microsoft’s Seadragon Peeks into AppStore Possibilities

Microsoft finally got around to testing Apple’s AppStore waters this weekend with the release of Seadragon, a free project of Micrsoft’s LiveLabs that lets you see giga-pixel images on your iPhone using a nifty zooming algorithm to get super-close on a map or photo, with just a few pinches or taps of your finger.

The app comes pre-loaded with images and lets you view yours or others’ Photosynth images, or content from any RSS feed.

The embed above shows of the experience in a fashion similar to the one you’ll find on the iPhone or iPod Touch, according to a report at TechCrunch.
