Microsoft Releases First iPhone App: Seadragon Mobile, Super Hi-Res Image Zooming

It was only a matter of time until Microsoft made something for the iPhone, and they’re starting out with a bang. Right off the bat, the first app they’ve launched shows off some of the more impressive technology owned by the company that works especially well on multitouch devices.

You can grab Seadragon Mobile as a free download in the App Store.
