    Hi all,

    Been looking for a while for something easy, fast and functional. Emphasis on Functional then on fast.

    The closest I came was Cyclomatic, but then it seems to never work or barely work these days with the arrow not moving or taking pics.

    I know the camera's long been a slow poke in Windows Mobile (or at least just lumia phones) before the Denim update, but it's still having its slouchy behavior and I wonder if that's why I can't find a good app. And most of the old ones are defunct (like z-stitch and the old MS Sphere app).

    So how can I take a good Panorama without being both frustrated and embarrassed in public?

    What do you all use?

    Note: I won't lie, I've gotten to the point of just taking a bunch of single shots, and have Google Photos auto-magically make a pano for me :/

    the app has been pulled from the store, so I can't download it on my new phone.
    If you've downloaded and installed it on a previous phone and are on WM10 now check your library under the store app.
    I was surprised to find it in my store library list and reinstalled it.

    That is par for the course lately I guess. Sad, because I thought the seadragon guys pioneered that tech that Microsoft bought and now crushed.

    Thanks for the replies... But I must say, going to that App List is a strong reminder to me as to some of the things that really frustrate me in Windows 10.

    It's a long, LONG, list with absolutely no way to order or filter the list. The Dev's solutions at times are, toss in a list and be done with it. It's infuriating!

    Ok, soapbox off. I take it from the responses there really aren't that many options for alternatives for a panorama app on the platform? I tried the suggestion and after searching through the list, found PhotoSynth, but now... well, it won't download and anytime I try to see what's currently in the download list of the Store App, the Store crashes :/

    So now this has led me to a glitch... But in any event, are there no hidden gems in the Panorama department on Windows Phone?

    The store has been very stubborn for some today.
    I gave up earlier.
    Things will comeback eventually however...they usually do.
    Good luck there.

    Well after a reboot, I still had no luck. Downloading a few random apps and *then* going back to the downloads menu seems to have cleared it up.

    For what it's worth, I did get Photosynth back (in all it's now aged glory), and also a few older versions of apps long since killed or gone paid. So that's pretty good.

    However my original question still lingers and I fear there's no answer... No alternative, *good and fast* panorama apps?
