Good concept, but not as polished as the Android photo spheres. Those are not 3d, but are more than just a panorama (up/down is included). It would be awesome if we could take multiple photo spheres in approximately the same spot, and let the algorithms reconstruct the 3d cardboard view. Especially if it can use existing 360 steradian photo spheres.
Sadly next to useless without a "Share to YouTube VR" function, to publish the photos. It would have been the killer feature (with sound of course). Some guy figured it how to do it manually more than a year ago (Google for "Cardboard camera to YouTube 3D panorama") but it's a too complicated process to actually perform.
Super great! One of the best uses for Google Cardboard. I wish the sharing feature had an anonymous option and that the image selection interface was a little faster (more images, like on iOS), but those are my only complaints! Best thing to show a friend!
This app is nice to see and hear what you were doing in the past especially when using a VR viewer, but when you use "free up space" on Google photos it gets rid of the photos. You can get them to show up again, but there is no audio. It makes me not want to use it.
In typical Googke style they killed of their perfectly fine functioning Google Camera app to replace it with a dumbed down poorly functioning "new" app. Probably in a few years it will be working properly again with the same features the Google camera app has. Anyway, the stitching works ok, but it messes up with the backgrounds. There are lines in it, or the lighting sucks. Poor replacement app. I will download the latest Google camera version app somewhere... 👎
Does not open vr photo from main screen, but when in cardboard mode, it does. Magnet does not work here(it does in other apps) sometimes the whole vr view is moving by itself even when holding still. Capturing photo sometimes crashes for no apparent reason. This app needs hell lot of work to polish.
Share your VR photos. Cardboard Camera will generate a link that you can send via email or post on social media.
