Microsoft’s Photosynth now available on Marketplace

Today, Microsoft finally released its panorama app for Windows Phone users.

Check the Photosynth in action after the break.

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 any mobile platform 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 panorama experience on Facebook and Twitter (using the free service) or as a simple image. You can also publish your panoramas to Bing where millions of people will see your panoramas, on Bing Maps and in Bing search results for the places you've captured.

I found the app on the Marketplace and when I tried to install it on my HTC Radar I got this message:

Compatibility warning

Some features in this application might not work because your phone doesn’t have:

  • Compass
  • Gyroscope

I installed it and I can confirm that Photosynth works but the lack of Gyroscope is noticeable, it's not smooth and fluid but it's still usable.

Download Photosynth from the Windows Phone Marketplace for free.
