    Well i got my lumia 920 last Friday im super happy, but why can't i find the Photosynth app? i even tried to google it and when i found it says its not supported on my device?

    Im 100% sure i have seen a youtube video when they showed off windows phone 8 and lumia 920 and they had the Photosynth app under lenses..

    And the wording was"most". Its surprising that as many apps work as they do since the kernel is so different. Unfortunately you always have to remember that developers even at ms projects like photosynth develop for multiple platforms so they can't always do everything on day one.
    On top of that many developers did not get the SDK toll the release so they need a bit.

    hi. this is answer to your question. also WP8 is a new platform which is quite different from WP7, I am sure they are trying to make it fully compatible with WP8 so you wont complain later.

    Twitter / photosynth: News: WP8 Photosynth "lens" ...
