Microsoft delivers Photosynth panorama app to Windows Phone

The company's application is available for free, and lets customers stitch together several photos into a single panoramic view.


Microsoft's Photosynth panorama application is now available to Windows Phone 7.5 users.

The Photosynth application has been around for quite some time, but this is the first instance of it coming to Microsoft's Windows Phone Marketplace. The application lets users snap a photo with their Mango-based device, and continue doing so until they have a full panoramic view.

According to Microsoft, the application helps users share panoramas on Facebook and Twitter, as well as publish them to Bing, so they appear in search results and Maps.

For iPhone users, having Photosynth available isn't all that spectacular, considering the app has been available to iPhone users since last April. Microsoft needed additional time to bring the program to its own OS.

Now that it has arrived in the Windows Phone Marketplace, Windows Phone users can get their hands on it for free.
