Google Brings Cardboard Camera App to iOS, Enables Sharing
Google today made it easier for more people to take and share 360-degree photos. The company has made its Cardboard Camera application available to iOS devices, allowing iPhone owners to capture 360-degree shots and look at them via the Google Cardboard VR viewer. iPhone owners were previously limited to consuming Cardboard VR content shot by others; now, they can shoot and view their own. Moreover, Google made 360-degree shots more shareable thanks to new tools in the Cardboard Camera application. People can easily send one another 360-degree photos that are then stored in the app itself for subsequent viewing. Google Cardboard Camera is free to download from the iTunes App Store and Google Play Store.
