The Photosynth app is taking up my iPhone storage.  If I move the photosynths to photosynth.net, will it free up that space?  Thanks.

Richyau, you should definitely upload your mobile panoramas to your Photosynth.net account for safekeeping. 

I would also back up your data to your computer with iTunes.

After that, you should be able to enter your library within Photosynth's mobile panorama app and see which panoramas are stored online and which ones are on your phone.

Delete the copies on your phone and you should have more free space again!

Thank you.  I don't suppose backing up via iTunes is a way to preserve a copy of the Photosynths that I can keep for posterity (and someday view with a standalone viewer on my PC/MAC)?

I think that iTunes backs up your apps' data, but am not positive. 

You could use http://www.macroplant.com/iexplorer/ to be sure that you got the cube maps for your panoramas, but they're not in a format that standalone pano viewers read without some conversion first.
