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 1.6:

•	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.

    Needs work. Algorithms and quality of capture (when you have a 20mp camera you don't want a shitty quality for no reason). Doesn't come close to Google's Photo Sphere..

    Oh my lord this app shocked me. I downloaded it back then but I didn't understand what it was so I uninstalled it. After I did a hard reset, I looked for important Microsoft apps and saw this so tried again and fudge---- awesome. 360 degrees shooting has never been this good!

    I don't know where all the good ratings come from but with my Lumia 1520 I don't get nice results. In direct comparison in a same situation with an iPhone 5 using photosynth its much worse...
