Accelerometer Alone = Not Good
This app would be cool if it didn’t lose track of where the pano was in physical space. For some reason it drifts ever so slightly, causing tearing. The only solution is to move the phone, but introduce parallax, which is not really a good solution. Not sure why it doesn’t align based off of the accelerometer AND camera feed. Just take what the camera sees when it’s on an already photographed part of the grid and double check occasionally.
I find even using the technique I use for shooting manually-stitched panoramas do not work with this for a full sphere. It’s not useless for hemispheres, though.
Never had accelerometer issues with this phone: it’s fairly new, and the few AR apps I’ve run work very well with no graphics drift.
Don't buy many apps, this was worth it
As the title says, I'm almost strictly a free app girl but this one struck me as worth the risk. While vacationing in Paris, I wanted a way to create full 360 images that could capture the sky, ground, and 360 of where I stood. My idea was to share this on Facebook with family back in the states and use Facebook's 360 feature to show them Paris through my eyes.
The app is not perfect but it does so exactly what I wanted it to do. You need to move slowly and start in the area you want the light to be correct in as it doesn't auto adjust very well. Again, move slowly. It took a 2-3 trial and error shots to get the movement right.
You'll also want to use the social upload feature built in, it isn't perfect but you'll get the 360 feature perfectly every time. There is a save to film room feature but those photos don't appear to upload correctly as 360s when done that way. The app created itself a folder on Facebook to dump the photos which was perfect for me as I didn't want me feed clogged with them.
Absolutely worth the two dollars! This app turns your expensive, taken-for-granted iPhone camera and turns it into a real 360 degree panoramic camera! Of course it just splices (Seamlessly and flawlessly, might I add) together multiple pictures and although this application provides no physical enhancements to your camera, but it allows you access to leading Artificial Intelligence for one three-hundredth of the price! If there was anything I could change, I would change absolutely nothing! Well, I’d be lying if I said I didn’t want it to be free. But who doesn't! I’ve tried every SINGLE free 360 pano app, and even a few even more expensive ones, though none of them are even CLOSE to the easy navigable interface, smart stitching system, and overall smoothness of 360 Panorama!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
