Microsoft describes the resulting image as a "full panoramic sphere" — 360 degrees both horizontally and vertically. The application automatically "sews" together individual shots to create the final image. Pictures can be shared via Microsoft's Photosynth web site, where it is easy to pan side-to-side and up-and-down, as well as via Twitter and Facebook. Photosynth for Windows Phone is a free application.
