    It works better with a tripod otherwise you need to have real good nerves to take that panoramic picture with Firebreak.

    Ok You guys aren't seeing the point of this...it's to enable panoramic pictures in the NATIVE camera.app so users aren't required to download another app to do it. I just downloaded Firebreak and tried it out and there's a clear reason why this hasn't been released officially by Apple, the panoramic mode, for lack of a better word, sucks. You guys shouldn't be QQ'ing all over the place and saying "There's an app for that"....The whole point is for native integration.

    I completely agree with you, it's awesome to have features built in that having to download a whole other app!

    You don't need a tripod you can do it without a tripod and you just use either photoshop app for free on the iPhone or upload it to your computer and just crop it so that it is just a solid photo. The photoshop app will automatically do a crop making it as big as you can with no black border

    Thats a lot of work, in that case just take some pictures edit them on photoshop, you dont need firebreak in that case then. Thats why it is an exclusive app so you can do everything automated without the help of something else.

    How is it too much work to open the image up in photoshop app and click on crop image it does it automatically for you you have to touch like 4 buttons :P the panoramic setting all it does is take a bunch of picture and automatically stitches them together trying to not create seams so the picture looks like one big picture, you will always get that black border because it's impossible to keep it perfectly aligned when you capture the image. you will always have to crop it

    It's too much work because you've now required me to leave my current app, open another app, open the photo, edit, save back to camera roll...

    I have an iPhone 4S for personal use and I have an HTC Thunderbolt for work running custom firmware.

    The custom firmware on my thunderbolt includes the newest "sense" camera which when it comes to panorama blows away every app in the iphone app store. Doesn't require me to edit it on a computer, doesn't give me any black borders and quite frankly stitches so perfect that typically when I show people it in action they are shocked at the resulting image quality.

    I love my iPhone and the camera on it produces overall better image quality, but the camera app on my thunderbolt blows it out of the water 10 times over when it comes to features especially panorama

    Here is an example of a panorama shot using my thunderbolt with no 3rd party apps or editing whatsoever - http://i.imgur.com/QXWyK.jpg
