360 Panorama allows you to take 360 degree panorama pictures from your iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch.  Pictures are taken using the sweep method which means you move the camera around until you fill the full area of grid-lines that are seen on your screen.  The application completes the stitching for you.  Pictures are viewed on scre

en or via an online account you can sign up for. Overall, 360 Panorama is lightning fast and each picture has an automatic quality boost.  It's easy to share your panoramic pictures on Facebook, Twitter and email too.  Finally, every picture is GPS tagged so you'll always know where you took your picture.  Check out this cool demo!

What didn’t you like about 360 Panorama?

When you view your panoramic pictures from your computer, the quality isn't always the best.  Exposure can vary throughout each area of the photo.  Moving objects don't work well with 360 Panorama either.
