Hello, Photosynth team,
I don't want to ask you for hard dates when we're likely to see Photosynth's new synths on Windows Phone, but I was curious as to whether you plan to bring them to Windows Phone 7 in addition to Windows Phone 8.
I'm confident that the GPUs in both WP7 and WP8 handsets are able to handle the viewer, but I can also understand that you're using WebGL for your viewer now and that you probably want to just use that everywhere.
My thought is that we'll have to wait until Windows Phone 8.1 in the first quarter of 2014 to get Internet Explorer 11 on Windows Phone 8 to use the WebGL viewer.
My thought is also that Windows Phone 7 will never get Internet Explorer 11 and thus never get WebGL.
Therefore, unless you guys dedicate resources to write a DirectX viewer for the WP7 Photosynth app, WP7 users are out of luck which seems a shame to me, especially since Microsoft Research had spins running on WP7 in 2011. https://bit.ly/spinmoviesch9
