Microsoft's 360-degree panorama app Photosynth finally lands on Windows Phone
It’s been more than a year since Microsoft released its Photosynth panorama application for iOS, and said that Windows Phone is not yet mature enough for the application. Turns out, Windows Phone has finally grown to be good enough for Photosynth and it’s now available for free on the Marketplace.
Photosynth is one of the best panorama applications out there, allowing you to join pictures both horizontally and vertically, for the full 360 degree picture.
The application is extremely simple - when you start up the application you get a frame that you fill in by just moving the camera around. After you roll the camera to all 360 degrees, the app starts automatically doing its magic, and you end up with the final picture. You can then share the still picture via social networks, or publish it on the dedicated Photosynth website, where you can view it interactively.
Photosynth requires Windows Phone 7.5 Mango, just as all other apps in the Marketplace, so you’d better update if you still haven’t. It also requires 512MB of RAM, so lower-end phones like the Nokia Lumia 610 won’t be able to use it.
