For some strange reason, Microsoft seems to have the habit of releasing apps for platforms other than its own. Remember all the various Bing apps that came out on iOS last year? How about Photosynth, the 360-degrees panoramic photography app that was released in April 2011? Well, It’s been a long time, but it looks like the app is finally making its way over to Windows Phone devices. According to reports online, a number of interesting test panoramas that were recently uploaded on the Photosynth website. What’s interesting about the panoramas is that they were created with non-iOS devices such as the Nokia Lumia 800, HTC Radar, Samsung Focus and HTC HD7.
In addition to those test shots, there was a synth image on the Photosynth website that showed references to a Photosynth for Windows Phone build. While these clues do point towards a Photosynth for Windows Phone app showing up in the future, it doesn’t mean that we’ll be seeing it anytime soon. Stay tuned and we’ll keep you posted on any updates.
