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 1.7:

•	Bug fixes

Updates in version 1.6:

•	Mitigation for camera viewfinder turning green after using Photosynth
•	Update to camera calibration logic to properly preserve field of view information
•	Improvements to auto-cropping a flat panorama for sharing or saving to camera roll

New in version 1.5:

•	Camera lens integration – Quickly capture panoramas by launching Photosynth directly from the built-in camera app lens picker
•	View shared panoramas – View panoramas shared with you via email, Facebook, or Twitter directly on your mobile device
•	More camera controls – Adjust for various lighting conditions by using new exposure and white balance locking options 
•	General improvements – Enjoy an even more delightful app experience with various bug and stability fixes 

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.

    Doesn't work at all. I take one picture, then the screen just spins when I try to move the camera. Zero successful attempts so far. Very disappointed

    Never stitches properly. Would be to embarrassing to show friends. Used on Lumia 920

    The app has always been good, but the size of images is poor and especially obvious on HD screens. Would it take much for Microsoft to update this app or perhaps merge it with Nokia Panorama now they own Nokia?
