Microsoft’s Seadragon App for the iPhone makes Google’s Earth App look like child’s play

SeadragonTechcrunch posted this evening on Microsoft’s Seadragon App for the iPhone.  It is an impressive piece of software that leaves you wondering how they get imagery to load in such a fast and fluid manner.  It helps to view while you are on a WiFi network but even so it is a refreshing addition to the lackluster pool of Apps that now populate the iTunes Store.  From the site:

The aim of Seadragon is nothing less than to change the way we use screens, from wall-sized displays all the way down to cell phones, so that graphics and photos are smoothly browsed,  regardless of the amount of data or the bandwidth of the network.
