iStone is presented in a three-dimensional environment and was designed to take advantage of the high-resolution screen and advanced capabilities of the iPad tablet. The app presents images and technical information on over 1,000 natural stones from around the world, including a search function that allows the user to filter by stone type, color, country of origin and more. Also included is the ability to view stones in three-dimensional and book-match format as well as email capability to share images with clients, colleagues or friends.

Designers and architects alike will find the array of colors and information useful in the specification of natural stone. Natural stone professionals will use the app as a replacement for weighty and expensive sample stones or documents.

iStone joins MIA's prior iPad offering, Stones of North America, in the Apple App Stone. To download the iStone app, go to the App Store and search "iStone." The results will produce several iStone apps, but only one for the iPad. You can also visit www.istoneappforipad.com to learn more or download the application.
