Hands on: Photosynth for Windows Phone 7 review
Microsoft has released a version of Photosynth for Windows Phone 7 users, allowing them to create almost never ending panoramic shots from their phone.
The app that has been available for iPhone users for some time is yet another app that makes it to Microsoft mobile platform, boosting the appeal of the WP7 ecosystem.
Incredibly simple, the app gets you straight into the action allowing you to quickly create Photosynths to share with your mates.
A quick go on the new app and it's very easy to use. Images are stored instantly, allowing you to piece together a "photosynth" of the scene in front of you. The app also provides a horizontal bar so you can get some sense of where the horizon is if you get too immersed in the experience.
Once you’ve created a Photosynth, you can share it as an interactive panorama experience on Facebook 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.
The stitching time at the end will depends on how many images you take, but we've been very impressed with the performance of the new app.
There is also a featured area so you can get inspiration.
You can get it from the Windows Marketplace now.
