Photosynth for Windows Phone is the panorama app that makes it easy and fun to capture and share interactive panoramas of the places, people, and events that are important to you. Using the latest in computer vision techniques, Photosynth is the acknowledged leader in mobile panorama creation. It is the only app available on Windows Phone that allows you to capture 360 degrees horizontally and vertically, making a perfect “sphere."

Once you’ve created a Photosynth, you can share it as an interactive panoramic experience on Facebook and Twitter using the free service. You can also publish your panoramas to Bing, where millions of people will see your panoramas on Bing Maps and in Bing search results. And check out our featured list, where we show off the best of what you and your fellow users create and share.

Updates in version 1.8:
•	New higher resolution capture mode that takes better advantage of your camera's capabilities
•	Improved stitching engine that blends panoramas faster and reduces visual artifacts

NOTE: Your phone doesn't need a gyroscope to install or use this app. If your phone includes a gyroscope, the app uses it to enhance your Photosynth panorama capture experience.
Version 1.9 adds support for the latest Facebook APIs

    Lumia 930 (Australia) issues - App launches and displays camera, Tap to Start unresponsive, nothing happens. Should be V1.8, but app displays V1.7. Very disappointing for recently purchase Lumia 930....

    This app used to be very good but now it has incredible difficulty in joining the panorama together smoothly. There is ALWAYS steps visible at the joins. The separate photos never line up properly. Use Lumia panorama instead if you have a Nokia. The results are infinitely better.

    Creates some great images. Can't paste passwords from my password manager into the Facebook or twitter sign in fields, which is rather vexing.

    Fantastic for both 180° and 360°

    How Microsoft could release an app so broken like this one, beggars belief. Auto capture cannot produce a single, seamless panorama. Images are mostly blurry.
