Just a quick entry in the ‘apps that keep on giving’ category. I wrote a quick look post about a wonderful iPad app called The Guardian Eyewitness just a couple weeks ago. I hadn’t planned on mentioning the app again so soon – but I just can’t help but share a couple of the spectacular images the app has featured over the last few days.
Above is an amazing sequence of images showing a pilot parachuting to safety as his fighter jet crashes during a practice flight.
It’s taken me quite a while to discover this app – as it’s been out since right around iPad launch day. I’d always heard very good things about it, but it has still exceeded my high expectations. The Guardian Eyewitness app for the iPad is just superb.
As its App Store description states, it showcases the world’s most distinctive and provocative photographs, providing a daily, visual reflection of global events. Even if you’re not usually fascinated with photography, this app presents stunning and gripping images that will leave you unable to put it down until you’ve seen all of them.
