Stilla ($1.99) is a completely unusual photo app which the developers describe as a "gyroscopic 3D camera." The app notes the iPhone or iPad orientation as you take photos and layers them into a sort of merged collection. Again, the developers explain: "For every image you take, Stilla will remember the direction you were looking at. The result is interactive and resembles a crystal, a 3D object made of facets blending into each other as you turn it around." The results can be very interesting but the presentation is a little too novel to be something you'll use often.
