01 OctiOS 6 Panoramas: Now this is cool

Now this is cool. I know, the latest Apple iOS update is supposed to be the cause of great consternation, wringing of hands, and gnashing of teeth. Oh no, the YouTube app is gone! Also… Maps.

Heh. Not to worry. We’ll talk about such things in a later post. But in the meantime… panoramas rock. You’ve probably seen the commercials, but what you may not know is that you don’t  need an iPhone 5 to take advantage of this snorky new photo feature; the iPhone 4s also gets it once you do the iOS 6 upgrade. I’m already impressed with the photo capabilities of the iPhone 4s, and panoramic shots make it even more impressive. See Cormac Foster’s ReadWriteWeb DeathWatch: Point-and-Shoot Cameras post for an indication on just how far smartphone cameras have come. Anyway, 4s owners, if you’ve been hesitating about upgrading to the latest OS this may be just the excuse you need.
