Photosynth iPhone App

Read full Photosynth iPhone App review

The iPhone cameras have been pretty special ever since the iPhone 4 launched in 2010, but the camera interface has remained somewhat… lacking. It makes taking quick photos a breeze, but doesn't offer much scope for customisation or creativity. That's where apps like Photosynth come in. It's a very versatile panorama app that automatically stitches vistas out of your iOS device camera's images.

Strangely enough, the latest iOS 5 update does have a panorama mode nestled within it, but you'll need to get your virtual screwdriver out to unlock it - even so, we doubt it'd be as good as Photosynth. The app lets you create panoramas automatically, with just a slow pan of your iPhone or iPad. It automatically senses when it needs to capture another scene, and blends the results. Although fairly simple in-use, its results are excellent, lacking the jagged quality other panorama apps supply.
