It's not difficult mind you, just a little be of time and effort.

If you're itching to get your tinker on, hit the link below for all the details.

  • Applenewz is gay. STFU!!
  • It doesn't work very well. It's really choppy when it stitches it together
  • or you can just get an app.... I found one called DerManDar - it easily takes panoramic pics! just (you can only do it straight/level, not above or below you) Just click the start button, it takes the first photo - then you just move slowly till the little circle connects and it takes the next one.. move again... etc.. pictures are really good from it.
  • Looks like this could be a jailbreak exploit meaning we can use backups to jailbreak ?

  • I see why Apple did not publish it, other apps like Photosynth are really much better than the native app.
