First introduced in 2012, Cycloramic has received much acclaim for its ability to capture 360-degree hands-free video using custom vibration patterns in the iPhone 5/5s. The app was even featured on the popular TV show Shark Tank, where it garnered a $500K investment from billionaire Mark Cuban.
But when Apple introduced the iPhone 6, with its slimmer profile and rounded edges, a lot of folks wondered what was going to happen to Cycloramic. After all, without the squared base, how was it going to keep the handset standing upright while spinning? The answer: use its power adapter as a base. Read More
I’m a big fan of the Panorama capture feature that was added in iOS 6. I’d like to be able to use it while holding my iPhone in landscape mode, but other than that I think Apple did a great job with it.
It doesn’t always work very well in low-light conditions though. And that’s where the jailbreak tweak LLBPano comes in. It enables Low-light mode on the iPhone 5 when taking panoramic photos… Read More
Better Pano Button is a jailbreak tweak for those that hate the original grayscale panorama button found within the iPhone’s Camera app. The tweak will allow you to replace the button with a blue button while in panorama mode.
The developer states that having a blue button is for minimalists, which actually doesn’t really make much sense to me. If anything, it’s less minimal than the standard gray button. He also states that it is better, which is, of course, totally debatable. Check inside for a few more tidbits of information. Read More
Since our first look at PanoPerfect for the iPhone, it has become more widely accepted as a great way to share only panoramic photographs. I am a big fan of the ability to take panoramic photos with my iPhone and it only makes sense that HalfPeeled provides a great new way to view and share them. As featured in the App Store’s “New and Noteworthy” section, PanoPerfect lands for the iPad and boasts a new web browsing feature… Read More
Flashorama is a new jailbreak tweak that allows you to enable the iPhone’s LED flash when using panorama mode. Normally, when switching over to panorama mode, the LED flash is completely unavailable for use. This tweak “fixes” that issue.
Although in most cases you’ll likely be shooting panorama pictures in well lit public areas, it’s nice to have the option to enable the flash if necessary. Take a look inside for a few more details… Read More
So LG is advertising the expanded panoramic and camera capabilities of its Optimus G Pro smartphone. At first blush, the commercial looks like a blatant ripoff of Apple’s iPhone 5 ad titled “Cheese”, down to the kids on the white background and the elongated “Cheeeeese”.
On closer inspection, it has a nice twist to it, watch what happens after mark 0:30. Their VR Panorama obviously out-innovates Apple in how amazingly it stitches the photos together to produce a nearly 360-degree image. Apple better come up with some expanded panorama features in iOS 7… Read More
One of the headlining new additions in iOS 6 (headlining, as in featured in its own TV ad) is the Panorama camera mode. Once activated, the feature allows you to easily take extra-wide panoramic photos.
By default, Panorama mode has you pan your iPhone from left to right as it captures the image. But did you know there’s an easy way to change it so you can pan from right to left? Read More
Apple is widely expected to unveil new iPods alongside its new smartphone tomorrow. But while we think we know almost everything about the new iPhone, the new iPods remain a bit of a mystery.
Until today, that is. According to some new information, the new line of iPod touches are likely going to feature a 4-inch display with a resolution of 1136 x 640, and a more powerful A5 processor… Read More
Last November, NASA launched a car-sized vehicle into space called the Curiosity rover. Earlier this month, that vehicle landed in the Gale Crater on Mars. And if that’s not enough to blow your mind, check this out.
The Curiosity rover has been sending detailed pictures of the red planet back to NASA throughout its travels. And you can actually view these photos in an interactive 360-degree panoramic image on your iOS device… Read More
It started as a Kickstarter project and it received enough interest and funding to turn into a reality. The Kogeto Dot is a nifty little peripheral for the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S that allows you to shoot 360 degree panoramic video.
It’s the perfect accessory for recording sporting activities and pretty much anything that involves action. Take a gander at our hands-on video review of the Kogeto Dot… Read More
But what if you’re not jailbroken? With no iPhone 4S jailbreak available, and no word on an iOS 5 untether, not everyone’s iPhone is hacked at the moment. Luckily, the folks over at FSM just posted a method to enable the Panorama feature — no jailbreak required… Read More
