Developer's Description

Interactive Panorama Capture and Sharing – Now in Version 1.1.2

“Crazy amazing”, David Pogue, technology columnist for the New York Times Gizmodo’s App of the Day, April 18th, 2011
Over 4.4 Million Downloads, 4.71 Out of 5 Stars in the App Store

Photosynth v1.1.1 is now available and better than ever! We listened to the 4,400,000+ users who’ve downloaded our app and added some of the most requested features. We’ve streamlined the sharing experience and added the option to share via email. We added functionality to save cropped versions of panoramas to the phone’s camera roll. And you can check out the best panoramas others are creating from across the planet in the Best of Bing Maps.

Photosynth for iOS is the panorama creation 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 allows you to not only make a panorama from left to right, but also up and down, enabling you to capture a full “sphere”.

Once you’ve created a Photosynth you can share it as an interactive panorama experience to Facebook (via the free Photosynth.net service) or as a simple image. You can also publish your panoramas to Bing Maps where millions of people can see your panoramas, both on the a map itself and in search results for the places you’ve captured. We’ve also added a “Best of Bing Maps” feature where we’ll be showing off the best of what you and your fellow users create.

During summer 2011, we’ll be giving away one Xbox+Kinect prize package to the best panorama entered every week as part of the Best of Bing Maps 2011 Contest. Winning panoramas will be featured on the Best of Bing Maps page of the app for the whole world to see and enjoy. Find details on the contest and how to enter in the app’s Best of Bing Maps feature.

"FWD:labs carries the most complete listing of linked professional apps I know besides of the fragmented Android Market (google play) and the iPhone App Store. I suspect it is a tenuous work to compile and link all proven working apps and much more your site offers. I thank you for sharing such complete list of iPhone and android apps for the cinematographer and the entertainment industry in general. I could not pass the opportunity let know my readers about your meticulous resource."
"[R]idiculously useful compendium"
Directors Notes
"I thought [FWD:labs] had put together a useful list when I saw it last year, but that was nothing compared to now. If you're a filmmaker and looking for a little portable help in pre/production/post then chances are you'll find it in the Apps for Cinema Artists. I know I can be a little iPhone-centric when it comes to these things, but you’ll be pleased to know the list is completely platform agnostic."
Directors Notes
Pretty much every iPhone or Android App you'll ever need/want if you're a filmmaker
