Microsoft Releases Its First-ever iPhone Application

Microsoft has released its first-ever iPhone application - a high-resolution photo viewer called Seadragon. The Seadragon mobile application is available for free to iPhone and iPod Touch users through Apple’s app store via iTunes.

The Seadragon is a product of Microsoft's Live Labs division, which focuses on developing Web-based technology and applications. The app also comes with the Deep Zoom feature, which allows a user to quickly magnify a particular area of a photo, regardless of its size.

Microsoft said the aim of the mobile application is to let users view even wall-sized displays on a mobile device, regardless of the amount of bandwidth on the network.

Microsoft didn't say when Seadragon would be available on other mobile devices or operating systems, including its own Windows Mobile.
