I recently took a panorama for a gigwalk, but the app refuses to upload. When I try, it immediately gives a "network error" message and the upload fails. I tried to upload another file and that worked, but this one fails everytime. Anything I can do?

This issue is still under investigation, but in the mean time you can try the following:

- Make sure you have the latest version of the app
- Tap "retry" five times to create a brand new upload

I keep getting this error, is anyone looking into why this is occuring? I successfully upload 5 or 6 on Sunday, then it started failing with this network error on my iPhone.  Nothing has changed on my iPhone between it working and failing, which was a matter of minutes

I get that same "network error" message when trying to upload one specific image of a labyrinth from my iphone to either Bing maps or Photosynth.net. Also, the thumbnail of this image went black after several "retry's."

All my other panoramas seem to upload with no problems. What gives?

Also, it would be nice to have a manual file sharing option when syncing with itunes as another way to back up the point cloud data.

Come on Photosynth devs and admins.  I have some cool synths to upload and share.  what good is this great app when I cannot share my synths?  Can anyone recommend an alternative app to photosynth?

Hi Surreal-Killer,

Try clearing the failed uploads, log out completely (windows live, facebook, and twitter), reboot your phone, and try uploading again.  The problem may be that one of those logins have expired.

Yeah, tried all that several times, but to no avail.

Did it again just to be sure, but nothing is working

Same problem here.  I don't understand, this issue has been outstanding for over a year and there is still no workaround.  Come on Microsoft, its a great piece of software but it is being held hostage on my device.  I'm considering buying a Windows 8 phone but can't let go of my iPhone until I can get these photosynths off the phone.

I'm h nights same issue. I have several logins and none are working. I'm at a McDonald's now trying to do it over wifi and fail fail fail. I'm losing money I gig for a living.

All day I have had "network error" showing up on different uploads, in and out of wifi too...any help?

And same problem here. I've sent an email to microsoft about this but to be honest I don't expect much from this. Even when it gives no errors, uploading is still a problem, because the pano cannot be viewed on the Photosynth site, at least not in my case. Only the thumbnail is showing but not the real pano

I can view your panoramas fine, Dinky, so you don't appear to be having too much trouble uploading...
