[prMac.com] Portland, Oregon - SpinCam is a wildfire success with over 300,000 iPhone users downloading the app in its first four weeks. "We wanted to go out and see if people liked the app we built for ourselves as much as we do, and we've gotten a great reception" says Josh Aller, co-creator of the the SpinCam craze. "We are finding that there are those who spin and those who like to view others' work. Plus we got a huge boost from our fans in Italy and France, to whom we are so grateful."
The latest much anticipated update of SpinCam, the free 360 photography app for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, provides a much improved social and sharing experience within the app as well as more flexible privacy options.
Rather like the "Bullet Time" special effects made famous by the Matrix movies, SpinCam quickly captures and instantly shares a spin of the people, places and events that mean the most. Utilizing the iPhone's gyroscope, SpinCam automatically creates the interactive spin - no more stitching, splicing, or wasted time. Spinning is super easy and takes users less than ten seconds.
Besides being an easy and fast panorama tool, SpinCam captures motion. People enjoy using SpinCam to create a broad range of creative and playful spins with movement.
Within the app, the Popular screen contains a browsable recent feed of public spins from users all over the world. From here you can view, like, and share moments with others. Capture is easy - tap the capture icon, press start, and spin. Once it is complete you can approve the spin, title it, choose your sharing options, and you're done!
With over 375,000 downloads to date, the SpinCam community is growing quickly.
