The video and photo above were showing Cycloramic in action. I found the app a few weeks ago and have been hoping nobody would talk about it on Dotto before I had the chance to.
It’s an iPhone 5 app that you can stand the phone on it’s end, and it will rotate the iPhone by using the vibrate motor to spin it in one direction. You can shoot a 360 photo or a video. I found the video a little jerky since it has to stop at times so that it doesn’t go too fast but still a clever trick giving you a handsfree panorama. I was told by the folks at Cycloramic (via Twitter) that an update to the app that is coming very soon will allow you to create a 360 degree, 24 seconds smooth HD movie which is pretty sweet.
Listen to the whole show here as well as links to all the apps we talked about.
