Vecnos Inc., the company spun out of Ricoh Company, Ltd., announced a major update to IQUISPIN, a smartphone app for easy creation and sharing of 360-degree content. The update (v3.0.0), introduces SphereFlow, a completely new way to browse 360-degree content, plus other updates that make editing and sharing 360-degree photos to social media even easier. The app is available for iOS and Android.
SphereFlow allows users to browse their 360-degree photos with a simple swipe across the bottom of the screen as their smartphone’s display shows them 360 degrees around each photo. The display appears to “flow” seamlessly from photo to photo. Designed to help users enjoy viewing and rediscovering their 360-degree photos, SphereFlow heightens the 360-degree browsing experience and promises to inspire further content sharing. SphereFlow is currently patent-pending.
In addition, IQUISPIN users are now able to share 360-degree photos directly to Facebook and other 360-compatible social media from within IQUISPIN.
To further streamline the UI, 360-degree photos, 360-degree videos, and project files have been gathered under the “Album” tab. In addition, four “IQUI-exclusive” effects were added with this latest update: Cool Shimmer, Golden Stars, Glass Stars and Gossamer Butterfly. Currently, there are 31 effects and 19 different motions, including three new IQUI-exclusive motions. While any 360-degree content can be edited with IQUISPIN, these new, exclusive effects are unlocked after connecting to an IQUI camera.
