Instaviz Provides Shape Recognition on the iPhone

Pixelglow Software today announced Instaviz, a new graph sketching application for the iPhone. Instaviz turns roughly sketched shapes and lines into aesthetically pleasing graphs, great for drawing concept maps and flowcharts, or just simple note-taking and brainstorming. Instaviz features two functions new to the iPhone platform: advanced shape recognition and automated graph layout.

The user sketches a rough shape and Instaviz recognizes an ellipse, circle, rectangle, square or diamond in a split second. He sketches a link between two shapes and Instaviz quickly redraws the whole graph with the best layout. The user interface doesn't get in the way of the brainstorming process, and the user doesn't have to fuss with the layout since it is automated.

John Siracusa of Ars Technica commented, "Newton-style shape drawing and more for your iPhone."

Instaviz uses Recog, a new shape recognition engine. Trained on over 2,500 sketches drawn by real users, Recog uses advanced fuzzy logic techniques to recognize what the user just sketched in a split second. Instaviz uses Graphviz as its automated graph layout engine. The industry standard for automated graph layout, Graphviz represents over 18 years of research work at AT&T and won two Apple Design Awards in 2004.

Pricing and Availability:
Instaviz 1.0 is available now on the Apple App Store for $9.99 (USD)
