3D Photo Ring Lite allows you to browse the 75 most-recent photos with an innovative 3D interface that arranges photos in a ring alignment and by color similarity. As confirmed by recent research (results from user studies), this novel interface allows you to find specific images more quickly than a 2D list presentation. It enables to concentrate on photos in the front while keeping a large number of other photos in view. Moreover, the grouping by similar colors gives a much better overview and speeds up the visual search process!

In order to give the app access to your photos, you need to allow "Location Services" for it at the dialog window that appears on startup. The iOS system requires this for every app that tries to read your photos because photos may contain GPS information. However, this app does not read GPS information nor does it determine your position!
