  • DeepEnd: Add 3D Depth to Your SpringBoard
    [ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=koyOg1meVPM[/ame]



    A few days ago I covered some news about a new app called 3DBoard, which created a 3D like effect for your SpringBoard icons. However, our good friend Ryan Petrich, developer of OverBoard, has been developing an app very similar called DeepEnd.

    The biggest difference here is that it is the Wallpaper reacts to your movements rather than the icons, which creates a 3D feel and add's depth to your wallpaper. It is rumored that the price when release will compete with that of 3DBoard. Both apps are a similar end result yet work differently under the hood.

    DeepEnd is currently still in beta, but for those impatient for the official release, you can try the beta version from Ryan Petrich’s beta repo: http://rpetri.ch/repo/.

      not yet, but something that will work better is an image with depth perception, or "depth of field" to give it that 3d look..almost what he has in his video

      I think it is just an interesting play with the shadows. Tip one direction it shows the shadow at this position and tip the phone to another it shows the other side.

      I predict a BIG future in 3D apps. Soon this will be one of the few reasons that people even jailbreak.

      Soon this will be a native feature (though more thoroughly implemented) in iOS 5(?). It's only a natural and logical progression IMHO.

      Your powers of observation are underwhelming... The icons (and their shadows) don't move at all. The wallpaper moves relative to whatever position you hold your phone. Don't believe me? Turn the zoom up in the settings app...

      From the videos to me this looks a bit better than 3DBoard, but from the comments here it look slike 3DBoard might actually be a bit better
