Photosynth – Your iPhone Camera’s Best Friend

Tap to start. Photosynth is the best panoramic camera app out there

Photosynth (By Microsoft) is my most favorite iPhone camera app ever. This free app is the simplest way to take stunning panoramic pictures. All you do is tap to start, and slowly move your camera up, down, left, and right, until everything you want in the picture has been taken. Photosynth stitches all of your pictures together (very quickly I might add) and, within a few minutes, you’ve got yourself a beautiful panoramic picture.

Photosynth: One Jagged Problem…

The one thing that it doesn’t do is crop the pictures to a rectangle. The picture you end up with has a few jagged edges and looks weird. No worries though, a couple of extra steps with the on-board photo editing app and you’re good to go. Photoshop will automatically do it for you when you open the picture in the program (Not 360)

This free iPhone App can be found on the Apple Market. It works on both a regular and jailbroken iPhone. Click here to see some cool apps for jailbroken iPhones.

It does seem to be a little bit of a problem if you go from bad lighting to good lighting. As you can see in the picture below, I’ve apparently taken some pictures of headless ghosts. (Click to view a larger version)

Photosynth isn’t a perfect app, but it is still an amazing one. The iPhone camera already takes awesome 8 MP shots, why not complement it with a panoramic masterpiece? What are some of your favorite iPhone camera apps?
