PhotosynthWow, Windows Phone users sure are going to be so jealous they find out about what iOS gets from Microsoft and they don’t. Microsoft has just announced Photosynth – a revolutionary photography app that allows users to very easily shoot panoramic photographs using the camera on their iOS devices.

What makes Photosynth stand apart from most panoramic apps is that Photosynth can do more than just really wide angle shots. Photosynth allows people to create an almost complete 360 experience, with the feature to stitch photographs from up, down, left and right. The panoramas can be stored on the device as a fully functional panoramic image. It can also be shared online – as a cropped version of the panorama or as an interactive panorama that’s hosted for free on Photosynth.net.

In addition to letting you create panoramic images for themselves and their friends, users can choose to publish the panorama to Bing Maps to share with the whole world. So while people who may never get a chance to visit a place, they can imagine what it’s like through the use of a panorama. Photosynth is available for free on the App Store for your iPhone 3GS and 4, iPod Touch (4G), and iPad 2.
