“Earlier today we introduced Apple’s 3D Avatar App which covered a basic overview of the new application in the works,” Jack Purcher reports for Patently Apple.

“Now a second patent application has surfaced and it actually shows that the app is already running on an iPad! We have the screenshot to prove it,” Purcher reports. “The new patent application focuses on how the app will work with color palettes and more. The big news however is that the new 3D Avatar App is in its final stages of development and that’s very cool.”

Purcher reports, “Evidently phase-one of the application is geared for the younger crowd, but other editions could be in the works as discussed in our first report today. One of the 3D characters in this Avatar App that we illustrate in our report has an Apple T-Shirt on. It makes you wonder if Apple is planning to debut this 3D Avatar app alongside a cool new Apple based game of sorts to kick this off just right.”
