Wow: a really useful, extremely specialized, iPhone app

Do you know what a gobo is? If you do, and you use them often, then this iPhone app is for you: it gives you a complete catalog of the current GAM gobos, but it takes them one step further. You can spin them, defocus them, color them right on your phone, so that you can see exactly (or approximately) what they might look like for your theater or film shoot application.

I believe this is an example of a portable app that truly starts to make the iPhone/iPodTouch (I have a Touch, not an iPhone) useful for specific industries. My hope is that, as the iPhone continues to mature, more and more of this type of application will be released and supported. I’m tired of simple games and “where are you?” and Yelp-type apps (although some of those are quite good); the future of mobile computing lies with truly making these devices work, and save time and money for the user. Congrats to Wybron for bringing this useful app out.
