I downloaded Panorama to my iPhone 4S yesterday and I really love it. This is the best panorama app I’ve ever used. I used to capture panorama with another app — 360 Panorama, and I thought that 360 Panorama has done a nice job in panorama stitching, but now, Panorama™ is the one.
Actually, Panorama is quite the same as 360 Panorama. Snap, move steadily from left to right, and panorama comes out. It’s hard for me to tell the difference between Wondershare’s Panorama and Occipital’s 360 Panorama at the shooting part. What struck me the most is the editing feature from Panorama, which lets me add cool effects to panorama that I took. There are 12 different effects to choose from. No other panorama apps can do such thing. Panorama™ gives panorama stitching more fun than ever.
Besides, I can share the awesome panoramas to Tumblr. I use Tumblr most of the time and always want to share photos with my Tumblr followers. 360 Panorama can only support uploading to Twitter, Facebook and its own community. I guess that Occipital aims to build an image community just like Instagram does, but I don’t think that is a good idea. In Panorama, you would share your works with friends via Email, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Flickr and most popular social networks in China. Cool, right? I think so.
Panorama releases its new version today. I found that I could take pictures with real-time effects in this new version. This is another feature, which cannot be found in other apps. The developer gave me a big surprise. Panorama is recommended in Apple Store now, and they deserve it. There are one more spotlights, that Panorama is totally free! Waste $0.99 to buy 360 Panorama or enjoy panorama with free yet more powerful Panorama, everyone can make the decision without any hesitation.
Get Panorama right now via the App Store for free, please do let us know what you think of this application, thanks.
PowerSketch has a simple yet extremely well-executed concept that makes capturing photos all the more fun. It comes packed with several beautiful filters (which, in this case, are better than those found in most other similar apps) that can be applied to the camera feed in real-time, so users can always preview the effects before capturing it. Unlike most other similar apps, PowerSketch lets users utilize the front camera for video recording, which makes the app worth its while.
By default, the camera mode is selected on launching the app, which can be used to capture photos instantaneously. Using gestures (well-explained within the app), PowerSketch can apply the available effects before capturing the image. Effects appear in a dock along the bottom of the iPhone’s screen, but with room for only five at a time, so users have to swipe to see the rest. If they are not sure which effect should be used in a particular scenario, they need to tap the Randombutton located at the bottom of the screen, and PowerSketch will do the rest.
The USP of the PowerSketch is, as the name suggests, making out sketches from photos. These sketches are so elegant that they resemble finely drawn pencil sketching by incorporating tiniest details. They look like the works of an artist, while still retaining many details of the original photo itself.
The app also allows users to import photos from their local library or capture new photos to create and share gorgeous collages out of them within seconds. To top it all off, it comes packed with some pretty good frames that can be applied to the collages while editing.
Photos and videos have a date label, geotag information, and can be copied to users’ camera roll instantly if desired. The photographic endeavors can be shared via Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Flickr, YouTube, and email. However, the user-interface really needs some tweaking I think.
At USD 0.99 it’s well worth downloading the app and giving it a try. PowerSketch is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad and requires iOS 4.2 or later.
