Magic Window, the most gorgeous app yet?

It's hard to spot a 'killer app'. They don't usually arrive with a fanfare and red carpet, more often than not they just sneak up from nowhere. Magic Window - Living Pictures by Jetson Creative LLC looks like it has the beginnings of a killer app.

Forget all the marketing spiel, Magic Window is essentially a series of beautiful scenes that 'move' through artful use of the time-lapse technique. The end result looks spectacular, and quite different from similar still or movie based photo display apps.

The price for such exquisite art is storage space. Once all the scenes are downloaded Magic Window can consume almost an entire gigabyte of storage space. At the time of writing the financial cost is just £1.79, a steal if you ask us!

We shall return to the theme of 'living pictures' very shortly -- we feel this could be a large and vibrant category -- plus we came across a technology recently that could bring something even more magical to these magic windows.
