There may be other tools to create panoramas on Windows Phone 8, but plenty of users who have made the step up from Windows Phone 7 have missed the availability of Microsoft’s Photosynth app. Back in January we heard from the team that a Windows Phone 8 version was only “weeks away,” and it looks like that magic number was seven weeks, as today the new version of Photosynth arrives.
The free app will stitch together both traditional panoramas as well as full all-around spheres. The app integrates with the Windows Phone 8 camera and builds off the previous WP7 release by adding some bugfixes, improving stability, and getting some new camera controls, letting you tweak exposure and color balance settings. You also get some new sharing tools, directing your friends to the Photosynth site where they can see what you created for themselves.
Check it out now in the Windows Phone Store.
