PANORAMIC photos are the best way to really give viewers a sense of place.
Roundme, a new app from Verdom IT Projects, has made a network devoted to sharing panoramas and giving virtual tours of cool places.
When you view a photo, you have to spin – yes, physically spin – to view the whole thing. The app essentially places you in the shoes of the person who took the picture.
The developers have seeded the app with professionally shot photos of many attractions, such as Berlin’s Brandenburg Gate, so you can journey to locales you may not see otherwise.
You can also upload your own images and look for shots from certain parts of the world.
Oh, and if you’re prone to dizziness, remember to take your tours slowly.
Free, for iOS devices. – (WP-BLOOM)
