Photosynth finally released for Windows Phone 8

Microsoft’s 3D Panorama app, Photosynth, debuted on iOS almost two years ago, but there wasnt any word on when it would be coming along to Microsoft’s own mobile OS, Windows Phone. Then it launched for windows phone 7 late last year but wasnt compatible with WP8, sigh. Thankfully, they have finally (finnaaalllyyyy) released Photosynth today, for Windows Phone 8 devices.

Photosynth for Windows Phone

There’s Lens integration, camera controls and more:

[quote_simple]Photosynth for Windows Phone is the panorama app that makes it easy and fun to capture and share interactive panoramas of the places, people, and events that are important to you. Using the latest in computer vision techniques, Photosynth is the acknowledged leader in mobile panorama creation. It is the only app available on any mobile platform that allows you to capture 360 degrees horizontally and vertically, making a perfect “sphere.”

Once you’ve created a Photosynth, you can share it as an interactive panorama experience on Facebook and Twitter (using the free service) or as a simple image. You can also publish your panoramas to Bing where millions of people will see your panoramas, on Bing Maps and in Bing search results for the places you’ve captured. And check out our featured list, where we show off the best of what you and your fellow users create and share.
NOTE: Your phone doesn’t need a gyroscope to install or use this app. If your phone includes a gyroscope, the app uses it to enhance the capture experience.[/quote_simple]

Available free, right over at the Windows Phone Store.
