This one has been a long time coming, and now Microsoft’s Photosynth is now available on the platform where it belongs. One of Microsoft’s coolest little-known web services, Photosynth.net lets users stitch together photos into a 3D panorama. However the service’s apps are touted as “the only mobile [apps] that can piece together a full panoramic sphere (that’s 360 degrees horizontally and vertically)”.
Here’s the official description:
Photosynth for Windows Phone is the panorama app that makes it easy and fun to capture and share interactive panoramas of the places, people, and events that are important to you. Using the latest in computer vision techniques, Photosynth is the acknowledged leader in mobile panorama creation. It is the only app available on any mobile platform that allows you to capture 360 degrees horizontally and vertically, making a perfect “sphere.”
Once you’ve created a Photosynth, you can share it as an interactive panorama experience on Facebook and Twitter (using the free Photosynth.net service) or as a simple image. You can also publish your panoramas to Bing where millions of people will see your panoramas, on Bing Maps and in Bing search results for the places you’ve captured. And check out our featured list, where we show off the best of what you and your fellow users create and share.
