I saw this app on Engadget, I assumed because of that it might be pretty good. It's not. For starters you can't create panoramas directly from the app, you have to use the iPhones camera app. You can't upload panos without getting signed in, and anything you upload becomes public. Good concept, but very poor execution.

Needs in app camera
Using iPhone's panorama mode limits this app. I want to take a full 360 shot, including high and low, but cannot! Bring back the in app camera.

Could be worse
Only redeeming feature is the ability to view other people's panos. "Create" doesn't work on the iPad, rendering it useless. Why would we want to upload the panos made from the iPhone app? They are bent and warped for viewing, and are far from the promised 360 degree panos in the description. You can't add to the iPhone's panos, so why bother? I'll stick with the vastly superior PhotoSynth app - also free.

What a neat concept - the ability for me to be transported to anywhere in the world and explore surroundings through others eyes!!! I would encourage the team to make the process of taking full panoramas a bit easier. But beyond that, I love it.

Not worth it even when it's free
I agree with other reviewers. I expected it to make the panorama. Instead you have to generate the images in other applications. Also viewing the panoramas you need to hold the iPhone/iPad up at eye level and move around. You can't sit still and simply view what has been made.
