Kaleido is a highly optimized digital kaleidoscope for your iPhone or iPod Touch that uses OpenGL rendering for fast, responsive performance. You can take images from your photo library or directly from the iPhone's camera, and twirl them into an infinite number of patterns with 8- and 4-way symmetry. Drag your finger on the touch screen to move the image focus point and zoom the scope. Shake the device to flip between four different mirror modes. Double-tap the screen to show/hide the toolbar. Press the play button to animate the kaleidoscope pattern into a mind-blowing movie!

Kaleido can turn any image into an amazing work of art. When you have that perfect kaleidoscope pattern on the screen, save it to the photo library with the click of a button, where you can e-mail it, use it as wallpaper, or assign it to a contact in your address book.

Please visit the Kaleido website for usage instructions and more info.
