Hello everyboy :) I've downloaded the Photosynth app for iPhone some days ago and it's really great to see the panoramas 360° pn the phone, it' amazing. The question is: if I share those panoramas by mail I get the full image static: is there a pc software to view the dynamic panoramas just like on the phone? Maybe it's in this site but I don't find it... Thank you.

Hello, N3gazione, 

On your iPhone/iPod/iPad when you're viewing your panorama, tap the 'share' button/link and select 'Photosynth.net'. 

That will upload your panoramas' cube maps to your account here on the website and you'll see them listed on your profile page here (in your case at: http://photosynth.net/userprofilepage.aspx?user=N3gazione ).

This means that anyone using Windows or MacOSX can view the interactive panoramas if they have installed the free Microsoft Silverlight web browser plugin. ( http://microsoft.com/getsilverlight )

Also, the Photosynth and Read/Write World folks at Bing Maps are working on making a viewer using the new web standards graphics technologies (that didn't exist when Photosynth's website was created) like CSS3:3D, HTML5 Canvas, and WebGL that will open photosynths, panoramas, spin movies, etc. ( http://bit.ly/readwriteworld )

That new viewer isn't finished yet, but they have got the HTML panorama viewer working for Safari on iOS devices. This just means that you can also send your panoramas' URLs to anyone with an iPod Touch/iPhone/iPad and they can view your panorama in Safari. 

In Safari, there will also be a link to view the panorama in the Photosynth mobile app if they want to use the faster performance of a native app's graphics or zoom in to the higher resolutions of panoramas made on PCs with Microsoft ICE http://bit.ly/microsoftice or Adobe Photoshop http://bit.ly/pstops

Hey natelawrence, thank you so much, really exhaustive. So i think i'll upload my pics someday, and i'll wait for a pc viewer. :)

I should also mention that if you take full resolution photos with your phone or camera and then stitch them on your PC with Microsoft ICE, not only will you have much higher resolution, but you will have the choice to either view them from your own hard drive by exporting from ICE to a Deep Zoom Tileset and viewing them with HD View http://bit.ly/msrhdview or by uploading them to Photosynth.net and viewing them in your PC browser.
