So this is an idea that first was brought to my attention by my old roommate Zach Mix (epic web skills, I would check it out). I don't think we are the first ones to think about this, but I thought I might see how I could make Instagram house panoramas in a way that could make sense. I think that people don't use the panorama feature of the iPhone5 nearly as much because there isn't a good way to share the photos.
My conclusion on the issue:
People would rather share a square photo to their friends than keep a panorama to themselves.
To make it work, I created 3 ways to view each panorama: at a glance (by default) to enable quick browsing, tap + hold for a magnified area of your choice, double tap to see it zoomed in (swipe to pan left/right), or turn to landscape orientation for a full screen view.
I've got a screen or 2 left to show, but likely won't get that posted til Monday. Follow me for more updates and other non-sense.
And the homies at instagram: Zach and I are listening, lets make this happen :D

this is so needed. love it.
This is AMAZING! Love it! I would def use it, but needs an android version too
The finger zoom idea is a touch of genius. Great concept!
This is sweet! What about using the accelerometer in the phone to allow the users to move the phone around to view the whole panorama like a view finder?
@Eric Ressler @Aziz Firat @WeCreate Thanks guys!
@Kreativa Studio Thanks! and that magnified glass might look familiar :) Made some minor alterations,but thanks for the great PSD resource.
@David Elgena I think that is a damn impressive idea! Would make for a cool experience to kinda relive the panorama– would be interesting to test out. Just would want to make sure people aren't having to pull 720s to see the whole thing :D
Jon, I don't know if you remember Eric Herrmann, but his panoramas use the accelerometer to pan. Check it out at www.thechasepano.com, and www.360panographic.com
Hope that helps, it would be sweet to see more panoramas, their really isn't a clean way to share them, especially in blogs. A lot of people aren't set up to share them, or they don't fit nicely into a category of "picture" or "webpage."
Would pay 0.99c for this app! Hope you develop it. Looks awesome.
@David Elgena you should try one of the current panorama apps out there (Pano, 360, or Photosynth for example) which do the accelerometer thing. I personally find it annoying... but that's me :)
@Jon Vlasach thinking of doing any desktop integration for large views?
@Austin Neill not sure yet what the plan is. Have a developer interested in helping build a prototype on iOS, but ideally there would be a desktop component to go along with it for sure
@Jon Vlasach awesome man. I love the concept.
