Cycloramic also now takes panoramic photos through either a handsfree mode using iPhone 5 or using the guided mode for iPhone 4/4S/5 which takes your hand and guides you to make sure you take a perfectly aligned panoramic picture.
I've seen a few reviews of Cycloramic that suggest that it looks almost demonic in its hands free mode as it eerily turns a full circle while filming. While I wouldn't quite go that far I can see the similarities. Certainly, the sight of an iPhone turning 360 degrees on its own conjures up some interesting possibilities. The realtors of the world are going to have a field day with it, that's for sure. You can share your content easily on Facebook and use either the front or rear camera. One thing that’s for sure, Cycloramic is going to bring a lot of smiles to a lot of faces.
