One of our favorite things about Windows Phone 8 are the new Lens apps, where you can launch a third-party photo app directly from the camera interface. Not only that, but images taken with those third-party apps are now directly integrated into your camera roll and with one tap can be viewed in the original app.
Naturally, folks who upgraded to Windows Phone 8 sought out Microsoft’s Photosynth app which has been available in the Store since May. Unfortunately, the app cannot be downloaded for Windows Phone 8 yet, presumably due to some incompatibilities. However, the official @photosynth Twitter account has provided a light on the other side of the viewfinder:
News: WP8 Photosynth “lens” app is in final testing. Will be released as soon as we’ve verified it on some final WP8 phones!

Now that the app has reached the final testing stages, we should expect to see Photosynth available for Windows Phone 8 soon. Plus it’s going to be a lens app, which makes it that much easier to capture fullscreen 3D panoramas. If you currently have a Windows Phone 7.x device, Photosynth can be download right now for free by clicking on the link below or by scanning the QR code.
