This is a great app that needs a little work to get things perfect but it is a giant step for photography about in line w motion pictures and digital as this is a whole new view. I suggest before hating on it look at some of the staff picks and others that have learned it I am still figuring it out myself the potential is amazing move you phone as if you are making panoramic and you should see what I mean if you look at some of the staff picks and masters of spheres work I keep getting parts that are cloudy in image but see others have figured it out and I will to wouldn't mind telling me how to get it to stop looking like finger covered half of image then I can start using them thanks for cool app took one star for the lack of ease of use as I am pro photo I should be figuring this out faster but its still only showing some of the movable viewed pano still cheers on a whole new chapter in Lightgraphing history
The future of photography !!!
I really don't understand how someone could try this app and make remarks like : it's useless ???? Or this is circle game and no photographer would use it ??? You either don't understand it ? Or haven't seen the results ? Because this app is like stepping into the photo !and it feel like it comes to life ! It's brilliant ! Take your time once you learn how easy it is !you will never take a photo any other way , it just doesn't compare !!!! Can't wait to see more technology magic! Thanks great work !
Obsession with circles
Who frames a photograph with circles? Is this a game or a photography app? I get that the app is called Sphere but no photographer makes a panorama with a series of circles.
This is one mode: Slow down. Slow down. Slow down.
The other mode is a myriad of pulsating circles all over the place. You have to bullseye and hold on each until it makes a photograph. It's a schizophrenic game of connect the dots.
I have to go into my Time Machine drive and pull out an older version of this app. It used to be a good app and I like their website. The app was quick and easy before they went nuts with the circles. This current version is not a photography app. It's a game.
