App of the day!

Our App of the day works on so many levels! A party trick, a super cool way to improve your photos, and just some awesome tech.

 

It’s called Cycloramic, and if you’re a fan of the TV show Shark Tank, you’ll probably have seen it before when one of it’s developers, Bruno Francois from Egos Ventures, secured $500,000 from two of the investors on the show.

 

It’s an app that is so simple, yet so ingenius.

 

It’s a way of using your phone to take panoramic photos. It spins your iPhone 360 degrees, using the vibrate function, and takes a photo at the same time. Whhhaaaaa!

 

It uses the phone’s vibrator function at a specific frequency to make the phone spin around its vertical axis and tracks the rotation angle using the gyroscope, compass and accelerometer. Holy cow.

 

So just so everyone has this straight- you place the iPhone in front of you, standing up, (on glass works best) press ‘Start’  and sit back, letting your phone spin 360 degrees in front of you, whilst taking a photo. No user intervention, just pure photo taking genius.

 

People get pretty excited when they see it, so definitely one to bring out at parties.

 

The App is available for $1.99 from the App Store for iPhone 5, 5S and 6 models.
