Yes, Photosynth for Windows Phone 8 is coming soon
It’s no secret that here at Windows Phone Central we’ve actually been using Photosynth (www.photosynth.net) for Windows Phone 8 for a few weeks now. But that’s certainly no comfort for those of you who are eagerly waiting for the app to finally make its way to your devices.
Luckily, the team behind Photosynth is well aware of your yearning and have mentioned in a tweet that the app is now finalized and being tested--though that was a few weeks ago. Actually, to our ears that sounds like it is at least a week or two away, assuming nothing needs to be adjusted during that testing.
For those who are unfamiliar, Photosynth is a photo app that is used to take 360-degree panoramas on your Windows Phone. By taking 10-20 photos of a space, the app can stitch the photos together giving viewers the feeling of being in the room as they manipulate the view.
The app is available currently on Windows Phone 7 devices but for whatever reason is not available on Windows Phone 8. The version we have is an early build and as far as we can tell, it is exactly the same. The one addition we have of course is the Lens or rather the ability for the Photosynth app to integrate into the camera module.
We’re not sure what else the final version will bring but we’re sure many of you are excited to give it a whirl on your Lumia 920. Obviously with a dual-core 1.5GHz CPU on modern devices, processing of the ‘Synth certainly goes much faster and that makes a better experience.
