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.
Cameras that capture 360-degree photos and videos are fun and creative smartphone companions. Xiaomi's Mi Sphere 360 Camera is an affordable entry in the space that lets you capture your 360-degree experiences, edit them, and easily share them with others.
