Cycloramic Adds Panoramic Photo Mode, Still the Coolest Party Trick in Town

A couple of months ago we introduced you to Cycloramic, an app that used your iPhone 5’s vibrations to take hands-free panoramic video. At the time the app could only shoot video, but after many requests (including our own) the Cycloramic team has released the much-anticipated V2.0, complete with Guided and Handsfree Panoramic Photo modes.

The update includes two parts, a Guided Mode for iPhone 4, 4S and 5 users, and a Handsfree mode exclusive to those who own the iPhone 5.

If you have an iPhone 4, 4S or 5, Cycloramic’s new Guided Panoramic mode allows you to take and view creative 360-degree panoramas that you shoot by hand. iPhone 5 users, however, can also take advantage of the new Handsfree Panoramic mode that shoots photos the same way the app shot videos in version 1.0.

You can check out the video at the top for a full demonstration of both modes. And if you haven’t yet jumped on the Cycloramic bandwagon, you can do so on the iTunes app store for the unchanged price of $1.
