The Three-Dimensional Shape Viewer brings geometry to life by displaying anaglyphic wire frame representations of common solid geometric shapes we all learn about. Objects are displayed in a standard 2-dimensional view but when you select the 3-dimensional view they seemingly pop out of the screen. YOU select whether or not they are displayed 3D, and you control just 'how' 3D they are, from apparently floating in space to just barely extending out of the screen to appearing to be behind the iPhone! YOU use a slider bar to control the view you get, or you can toggle the SPIN button to make them endlessly spin, floating in space. This is an entertaining novelty app, but also a very instructional and educational one for children learning about geometry and Platonic solids.

The shapes it can display are:
Cone
Cube
Cylinder
Pyramid
Prism
Sphere
Sin Wave
Cork Screw
Tetrahedron
Octahedron
Dodecahedron
Icosahedron

Since there are different color schemes for anaglyph view glasses, the program allow you to select from the four most common:
Red & Cyan
Red & Blue
Red & Green
Green & Magenta
