A must-have for architects in the field: superpowerful app that creates XY panoramas with your phone. I say XY because you can point your camera in any direction–left, right, up, down.
Why are panoramas so great? You know how you’ll take 100 photos on site, get back to your desk and realize you missed just one shot that would tell you how something was installed? Or you’ll forget what sequence you took the shots and not know how two photos go together? With a panorama you have a fighting chance at documenting everything you need.
You just aim your camera, no need to tap anything until you feel like you’re done. It auto-stitches all your shots, saves it as a flat fisheye shot in your camera roll, and keeps the panorama in your phone, in the app. You can name your panorama and use the GPS locator to identify where it’s taken.
On top of that, you can upload to photosynth.net (once you create an account), see the panorama in the browser and share through email and Facebook. You can also embed it in a webpage.
You can choose to make your panoramas public (there are some great hi-quality public ones on photosynth.net) or keep them private.
Great stuff. Go get it now.
BONUS: This is what Photosynth used to be. Really. Really amazing.
