360 Panorama, a popular iOS app that was once supposed to come to Android, will finally be launching soon. 360 Panorama allows users to take panoramic shots in real time, meaning your phone isn’t taking a series of photos and stitching them together. Instead, it captures the entire photo at once which makes for a more accurate and clean shot.
The application has been in development since Android’s launch but the lack of support outside of Java and the lack of OpenGL support forced their hand to instead focus on getting it up on iOS.
Now, with the NDK and OpenGL, they’ve finally been able to finish their project on Android. We can’t find the application in the Android market just yet but we expect to see it there soon. The app will cost $.99 to download and requires Android 2.3 Gingerbread.

That would be one blurry photo!
Cool. I don’t really take enough pictures so a dollar isn’t really worth the novelty of it but it’s nice to see it as an option.
FC FC FC haha
I tried it out but couldn’t get it to work. It would occasionally only show an entirely green screen. When I could get it to capture, the resulting image wasn’t a panoramic but just one frame which appeared to be my starting shot. Maybe I was doing it wrong.
It would consistently force-close upon exit.
I wanted it to work but ended up going for a refund.

43 out of 59 reviews (as of right now) are 1 star. Not even going to bother.
not to sound cheap but $.99? no thanks I’ll wait for my Galaxy Nexus and have it for free.
That’s okay, I’m already happy with the Panorama shots my Epic 4G Touch can take without downloading any apps.
Well you guys should try the other app 360 .https://market.android.com/details?id=com.vtcreator.android360 …
PS: I founded this app :)
Judging from the reviews of the app I think I’ll pass. lol
1 star is realy nice! Can I pay more! Can I get 2? Hey, brooo!!! Get back in line!!!! I come back tomorrow when app get no stars! :-)
This is a much better app ( I think it was 3 bucks) but well worth the money imo.
Tells me my Nexus S is not compatible, so it won’t let me install it.
PER USUAL Android fragmentation rears its ugly head.
Probably explains alot of the shitty reviews.
Hopefully a year from now this is not an issue.
