The BlackBerry PlayBook is one of my favourite devices to view pictures with. The size of the display, the crisp, vivid colours or the easy gesture management; it’s the perfect way to view and share images. Now on top of being able to scroll through memories, you kind of want to have some fun with the images as well. There are a few options out in BlackBerry App World; even RIM has its own Scrapbook application. Anthony McCormick dove in with a unique way to make a big splash in this market with Liquid-Photo. The application applies a ripple effect to images; generated at random or by your own fingertips. Some of the key features are.
Touch sensitive water ripples
Screensaver while your BlackBerry PlayBook Charges
Automatically exits the application if your batter falls below 10% if it is not Charging
Rain Effect - Create an amazing rain effect over top of your image slide show
In-App Camera control so you can quickly add water effects to your photo's
Choose individual Photo's or whole Albums to add to your slideshow
Live Effect/Slide show configuration through the built in settings screen
Ideal ScreenSaver whilst your BlackBerry PlayBook charges
I did find that, the more intense you made the ripple effect, the slower the animation; so instead of water ripples, you’ll end up with something that behaves like molasses. Just in time for Christmas, Liquid-Photo was updated to also include a snowflake option, where you can watch snowflakes falling in front of your images. It doesn’t accumulate so there’s no need to break out the shovel! You can play with the snow speed, wind and intensity levels as well. Liquid-Photo is available for $1.99 from BlackBerry App World. The snowflake portion is also available on its own, known as SnowPapers, for $0.99.
