Pangea Software—long time Mac (and iPhone) game developer—has announced the release of The Finger, a new 3D animation app for the iPhone and iPod touch. It costs $1.
The software can also translate text into Signed Exact English (our caveat for novice sign language fans: This is not the same as strict American Sign Language). Users enter text using an on-screen keyboard and the 3D hand then finger-spells the word, phrase or sentence using characters from the signed alphabet.
System requirements call for iPhone OS 2.2.1 or later.
In related news, Pangea has also recently released a free “Lite” demo version of its 3D platform action game Otto Matic.
