App of the Week: Photosynth

Download link

Function: Captures 360° panoramas
Platform: iOS
Price: Free

Microsoft took a 360-degree turn on panoramas by introducing Photosynth in 2008. This is one of those things which words can't describe you just have to see it (check out mine below!). Google replicated this feature in the form of Photosphere which it introduced in the Nexus 4. Photosynth also hosts a community where you can search, explore and see amazing 360° images of different locations in the world. You can share the image with friends and family but unless you upload it to the community publicly, the app will send a flat stitched image.

Top Features include:
  • Zoom, pan, and rotate your panorama in any direction with the immersive viewer.
  • Search and explore panoramas from the Photosynth community to discover new amazing interactive images.
  • Your panorama images can be saved to the camera roll.
  • Share photos to Facebook, Twitter or through email.
