Google today released Photo Sphere Camera into the Apple App Store. Just like on Android, the app allows users to create 360 degree images by snapping photos up, down and all around them and then letting the app stitch those pics together. After creating a Photo Sphere, you can publish the image to Google Maps or share it to Google+, Facebook, Twitter or an email contact.
Photo Sphere Camera is 18.7MB in size and requires iOS 7 or higher. It’s compatible with both the iPhone and iPad, though Google notes that the iPhone 4 cannot create photo spheres.
Photo Sphere support has been baked into Android for a while, so it’s nice to see the feature finally make its way to iOS. The app seems to work well enough in my testing on an iPhone 5s, giving you an orange circle to line up with, letting you move the camera in any direction and then giving you another orange circle to line up with.
Photo Sphere Camera can be downloaded using the App Store link below. Once you start stitching together some images, be sure to share your impressions with us!
