    I agree, work is needed. It's a good first attempt by the dev.

    You have to move super slowly or your pics end up all jacked up. And even then, there's no guarantee. Been playing around with it for the past hour and I'm not overly impressed. I've had some really good results and some just terrible results. It would be pretty awesome if the app worked the way it does in the video on their site for their iOS version.

    After reading all the positive posts, I thought it was just me, but I'm having the same experience. I'm not finding it smooth at all, as others have reported. I find it jerky, and it freezes and just stops taking images in the middle of a pan. The one time I managed to get a reasonable pan, it was VERY blurry. I've tried moving very slowly, but it invariably freezes. I really want to love this app as it looks like it could be awesome, but it isn't for me right now. I don't know if a future update might help, but I'm more than a little disappointed right now. I'll keep trying though. Any tips to help improve my experience, I'd really appreciate them.

    I had some stuttering yesterday when I tried it at night, but it worked smoothly this afternoon (bright, sunny day on the golf course )

    Me too, I experience some lags on it or it just stops. I also wish it has stabilization options, flash on/off, and that "You are going to fast" warning similar to iOS. (Unless they patented the last one -_- )

    I found some tips and tricks on the Occipital site:
    360 Panorama Tips at Occipital – Blog

    And from the instructions on the Occipital site:
    How to get the best shots with 360 Panorama

    Quick Tips
    ✓ Make as tight of a circle as you can
    ✓ Make a single smooth pass
    ✓ Choose good light over low light
    ✓ In low light: move, pause, move, pause...

    I just tried the low light advice in my office and it worked reasonably well.

    Also for anyone getting any sticking or freezing try a reboot of the phone this fixed it for me.

    Yeah. You guys are using it wrong!

    I had lots of problems indoors. Then I figured out that you need to pan slowly,stop after each "click" and wait for another "click" before continuing to move.

    This is a great app.

    I expect that access to more camera settings will come over time.

    360 Panorama from Occipital.-360panorama-my-deck.jpg

    Testing...
    this is my first outdoor panaramic picture using the Z10 and 360 Panorama...
    did a slow 360 of my deck view...

    This was well worth the price...if my first shot came out this good...

    (by the way..that sunlight burst is the morning sunrise...I took it at 7AM on the Westcoast)

    SOMEONE asked if this can be BBM'd to people who don't have the APP. and I can vouch that it does BBM very well...comes into BB9900 as a strip that can be pinched and enlarged and scrolled to view..

    In case you are wondering what my Avatar is...It's a picture I took of the Vatican through a Keyhole on a far mountainside overlooking the Vatican...One of my best...I use it as my Z10 wallpaper...the lit pathway lines up perfectly with the page scroll icons at the bottom...

    I find it freezes more in portrait mode rather than landscape.

    After ready tips and playing around with the app more it works quite well. Also expect different results in various lighting conditions. That said thanks for going native and look forward to future enhancements and fixes.

    You can "Save the Photo" from the 3 dots menu on the bottom right. Photo not as clear as iphone's.

    Can't seem to find the stereographic option, unless I'm missing something?

    Should incorporate the volume buttons to snap the pic like the built in camera does. That would be a neat update. All camera apps should have this feature.

    Great to see this app finally out and I really respect the devs for going native on this one. I was a big Photosynth user on my ipod touch but since the Z10 I've been leaving it at home more often. The app definitely has its bugs but its a good start and hopefully the devs are quick to address our issues with future updates. Personally I'd like to see an option to save the panoramic photos at higher resolutions.

    Same here. It wasn't cooling down very quickly after I closed it either.

    Agreed. Phone gets hot and results are inconsistent. The blending algorithm isn't very precise.

    I think you select the globe with arrows icon.
