[prMac.com] Boulder, Colorado - Occipital, the company that developed RedLaser, today is pleased to announce the introduction of 360 Panorama 3.0 for iPhone and iPod touch devices. 360 Panorama completely reinvents the way panoramas are captured and shared.
Using 360 Panorama, users simply pan their camera and see the application "paint" the panoramic scene in front of them from live video. Moments later, after the scene is captured, users simply press done and the panorama is ready to be saved, emailed or uploaded via Twitter. What's more, the result is not simply a flat panoramic image file, but rather an interactive 360 viewer, like Google's street view, that allows anyone with an iOS device or Flash-enabled browser to experience the scene immersively.
"The days of clumsily stitching photos together to create panoramic views are over," says Jeffrey Powers, co-founder of Occipital. "360 Panorama lets anyone capture immersive surround views in seconds."
* iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, and iPod touch (4th generation)

* 1.0 MB
Pricing and Availability:
360 Panorama 3.0 is temporarily on sale for $0.99 USD (normally $2.99) or equivalent amount in other currencies and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Photography category.
