Photosynth for Windows Phone 8 Now Just “Weeks Away”
Back in May of last year, Microsoft finally delivered a version of its Photosynth tool for making panoramas on Windows Phone 7.5 handsets. While it was great to finally see the app arrive, after already being available on iOS, many Windows Phone users have already moved on to WP8, and so far there’s no support for the app on the new platform. If you’ve been anxiously awaiting the day when Microsoft would get around to updating Photosynth with full Windows Phone 8 compatibility, the development has some news for you, and it looks like a release will finally be taking place in just a few weeks.
Taking to Twitter, the team explains that the lack of WP8 Photosynth thus far has been due to driver compatibility issues with certain WP8 handsets. Rather than release a version with spotty compatibility, the team has been working to iron-out the last of these issues before the app’s release.
And no, there’s no word on just which phones are causing all the headaches, so we don’t know who to blame for the already lengthy delays. Just rest easy knowing that it’s coming, even if that means several more weeks of waiting.
