It is a cool app for ordinary people, not for professional usage. And I believe that most of the PRO won't use smartphone camera and mobile apps for their productions. I am not a pro, and yet it take times of practice to perfect it. (Especially TOP & BOTTOM part, and indoor) Tripod is a good props but you need to find a way to make it like a guy holding a camera. Otherwise your angles will be out, and your final product will be funny.
Disappointed by the lack of Google Maps direct switch to open the place or save it. Freezes and becomes unresponsive quite often on my Note4. Panos often come with macro stitching errors or are displayed still squared on the app. Come on Goog I like the idea you can do much better.
The algorithm for the manual taking of 360 photos using the app is messed up. Somehow tends to overlap the images or just stitches the photos badly. I thought it was just due to a slower phone but then when I switched to a newer and faster flagship phone, it just gives the same result. I tried it with iOS and Android. Still the same. Please fix this issue
Quite buggy photography but nice for viewing. Hoped a long time for updates to fix them, but for every fix, new problems occurred. Currently pictures that I took appear twice or produce ghost entries in the list, which do not show anything but pressing the render button causes a crash. The grouping of self taken pictures is a little weird. It appears they are grouped by place or time, but not always correctly. Like a picture can be thrown into a group without belonging there or taken out for no reason.
Everything is good... Can you please let me know why I am not able to see the video mode..y local guide level is 7 with more than 5000 points...have already uploaded 50 approved photos toobin street view
No this is not bloatware. No this isn't spying on you. This company owns android. They own the best phone OS in the world that is more used the the apple OS. The permissions are to stop you from getting calls in the middle of photoshooting, the contacts are to allow friends with he app that you call and text to see your stuff.
