And now, for something totally different. This takes something between a video and a photo -- it doesn’t move but it does have sound. You spin the photo around with your finger to see the whole thing. One really cool feature is that you can turn the camera around on yourself to record a 360 degree shot of your face with the world spinning behind you. But where it falls short is usefulness. You can ONLY shoot 360 degrees -- sometimes you don’t want the entire circle. Also, you don’t have a simple photo you can save. You can share your creation to their website, or even to friends with an iPhone, but your friend must have the (free) Sfera viewing app (see link below) in order to be able to see it.
What is it about?
App Store Description

Note 1: regarding problems with the photo progression:
Thanks to the gyrometre function, problems related to the compass have been corrected.

Note 2: For the iPod touch 4 users
The gyrometre used in the iPod touch is a bit different from the one used in the iPhone 4,
thus photo progression issues (jump problem) may rarely happen. We really apology for the inconvenience caused.
