Posted:
in iPhone edited January 2014
Mosaica is an iPhone app that allows you to create 3D mosaics (which are similar to panoramas) on your iPhone and share them with others.



Mosaics are made by taking overlapping pictures of an interesting scene, which are processed by Mosaica, and related to one another automatically on your phone (no internet connection required).



You can upload your mosaic to the Mosaica service where you can share it with friends and family. Your mosaic is also hosted at our community site m.osaica.com - Mosaica Community Site where an Adobe Flash version is available.



Features

-Automatic stitching of photos

-Photos taken in any orientation or order

-Fast processing (in background while taking photos)

-No computer or internet connection required

-Explore mosaics posted by others

-Works with 50+ photos

-Intuitive Multitouch interface

-Share with friends on m.osaica.com - Mosaica Community Site (flash version)

-See your results as you go, add more photos at any time

-Twitter integration



NOTICE: Please read the help before using the app. Start out by standing in one spot and taking overlapping pictures while rotating. m.osaica.com - Mosaica Community Site has several youtube usage videos.



Free Lite Version (view only) is available.



New in this version: Pagination of mosaic lists and better documentation, 3GS support, twitter integration.

    Looked at the web site... it's obviously a ripoff of the concept Microsoft pioneered (can't remember the name at this time), and difficult to navigate an image. Not quite ready for prime time.

    You're thinking of Photosynth, but that seems to me to be a rather different thing. It uses Microsoft's servers and back-end software to do the heavy lifting of tiling lots and lots of disparate photos of any given scene into a kind of "3d" navigable image, with (depending on the number of and range of photos making up the mosaic) seemingly magical zoom depths (since close ups can be seamless blended with middle and wide angle shots).



    Whereas what we have here is an app that does the mosaic stitching in real time on a phone, the resulting image only being "zoomable" to the extent that a number of shots increase the apparent pixel count of the image. The website is just to share and display. Not nearly as fancy, but powerful for what it is.
