Photosynth arrives for Windows Phone 8 with a lens app

Photosynth, the 360 degree(horizontal and vertical) photo stitching panorama app that has been there on Windows Phone for quite a while, has finally received an update for Windows Phone 8, with a nice lens app as an addition. Microsoft has been pushing the Photosynth service for a long time with its nice photo stitching capabilities, that are very similar to what you can find in the Android 4.2 camera’s photo sphere application. The Windows Phone 7 version has been there for the Mango devices and above since May 2012 and it is about time that it has been updated for Windows Phone 8, that too with a lens app for the camera.

The new version of the app, which includes Windows Phone 8 specific enhancements has these new features –

  • Lens integration – Quickly capture and view panoramas by launching Photosynth directly from the camera.
  • View shared panoramas—New sharing capabilities let other Windows Phone 8 users view your panoramas on their phone, and as always you can show off your panoramas by email, Facebook and Twitter.
  • More camera controls – Adjust for various lighting conditions by using new exposure and white balance locking options

Pretty nice, right? Well, if you have been a fan, download it right away. It is strictly for Windows Phone 8 users by the way.
