Panoramas are great for showing off beautiful landscapes, so it's nice to be able to do that easily with other people so they can feel like they're there too.

DMD Panorama

When you want to truly immerse yourself in the experience and capture it all

DMD Panorama

For those who want full 360 degree panoramas that truly capture the entire experience.

DMD Panorama knows that your iPhone already takes panoramic pictures, but it aims to make taking the widest of shots even better than the built-in option. Its convenient yin-yang symbol guides you through each shot by showing you when you're panning too quickly. And if you're looking for really fancy features, DMD will help you create immersive images that are compatible with VR headsets like Google Cardboard. But if you're in a sharing mood, your friends can check out your cool, 3D shots even without having the app. It even works with the front-facing camera if you want to take some amazing selfies.

Why we love it

Anything that's as easy to use as Apple's own panoramic mode but gives you cool, extra features is alright with us. We especially like the social settings, which let you easily check out other people's epic shots from all over the world.

For people who want epic backdrops for their selfies.

Most panoramic camera apps leave one thing out: the photographer. PanoSelfie puts you back in the action with the ability to take selfies with super-wide backgrounds for that extra bit of context. All you do is take a regular selfie, and then the app will prompt you to rotate your phone left and right to fill out the rest of the image. It'll put you in the middle and show off the awesome things happening behind you for maximum impact.

Why we love it

Usually, panoramic photos are about the scenery, but we can see PanoSelfie coming in handy for people who really want to up their selfie games. It could also come in handy for huge group shots when you don't want to be the one left holding the selfie stick. Because nobody really wants to be left holding the selfie stick.
