Microsoft Releases iPhone App

Looking to cash in on some of the success of the iPhone and Apple's App Store, Microsoft launched it's first iPhone App. Seadragon Mobile, which was added to Apple's App Store on Saturday, is a free image-browsing app that allows users to "get super-close in on a map or photo, with just a few pinches or taps of your finger."

Other features include the ability to browse an entire collection of photos from a single screen as well as the ability to browse Deep Zoom Images that you can create from your own pictures or your Photosynth collection (or anybody else's).

Seadragon Mobile is available for free for all you iPhone users at the iTunes App Store.

Microsoft is reportedly working on other iPhone apps, however there is little news on what those might be or when they might be released. reported earlier this year that Microsoft's Tellme unit is actively developing a voice-activated search for the iPhone, to be launched by June of '09. As of yet there has been little to no update regarding progress on that app.
