Microsoft Photosynth iPhone app now available

Today Microsoft released Photosynth for the iPhone, their latest iOS application on the iTunes App Store.

Photosynth for the iPhone allows you to take any number of photos from within the same area and stitch them together to make a panoramic image. If you've ever found yourself having to take multiple photos of an area, Photosynth will take all those photos and blend them together.

Photosynth also allows you to share your photos with any of your friends on Facebook and even comes with Bing Maps integration, so you can share your panoramas with anyone in the world.

Photosynth comes with a number of features, including:
• See your panorama take shape as you capture them with INTERACTIVE CAPTURE
• Look and capture in all directions with FULL-SPHERE PANORAMAS
• See the final panorama right away with fast ON-DEVICE PROCESSING
• Sharp, high-resolution results with the ADVANCED IMAGE STITCHING ENGINE
• Panoramas are always available to view and share from the ON-DEVICE LIBRARY
• Zoom, pan, stretch, and view in landscape or portrait with our IMMERSIVE VIEWER
• Save as many panoramas as you want and view them online at PHOTOSYNTH.NET

Photosynth for iOS is only available for iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPad 2 or iPod touch (4th generation).

Download: Photosynth for iOS on iTunes (free).

Update: Photosynth will also be coming soon to Windows Phone OS 7.

I think it has to do with 3G not having auto-focus while the 3GS and later versions have.

but photosynth is just to stitch the photos !! so is tht auto-focus necessary for stitching

This app actually takes the pictures. No way to stitch existing pics together so it wojld need the autofocus.

Photosynth app works with all iOS devices with cameras. That includes iPad 2,iPod Touch 4th Gen,iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4

I don't understand why Microsoft's Bing and Photosynth apps aren't available on the Canadian iTunes store. What does Microsoft have against Canada?!

Great App.

Stop complaining about not being able to access the apps from ur respective country itunes accounts, create a free iTunes US account and enjoy. Thats what i did to use all the free US Apps here in India.

The WP7 Metro look on this app looks good too

It is really breaking the consistent way of app design on the iOS platform, though in some ways, I can understand this odd move to Metro on iOS.

Downloaded, took a few pictures, when tried to upload it said it would share the panorama with all the internet, removed it from my device.

Screw the lack of security.

you do not need to share it. The app puts the pic in the photo gallery on the iphone.

It is missing the option to zoom in and take a picture. One of the nice things about Photosynth is the ability to zoom in on things. Also, moving around in a space, such as a museum. This is only a panorama.
