Miao Liao has just released an app, PanoSelfie, that she claims is the first app that enables users to easily capture “panoramic selfies.” Featuring an easy-to-use layout, PanoSelfie makes taking photos of yourself in front of impressive backdrops easier than ever before.

Features:

Just like its name indicates, PanoSelfie allows iOS users to easily take panoramic-style photos of themselves. This way, their selfies are no longer dominated by their faces; instead, an impressive background can also be easily seen in these panoramic photos. If you’re planning a vacation this is a “must-have” app.

Taking large group photos selfie-style is also made much easier with PanoSelfie. A simple design makes taking these photos extremely easy to do, and brief introductory instructions show first time users how to do so.

Various viewing angle options of up to over 130o are available in the app, allowing users to choose how wide they want their selfies to be. PanoSelfie photos can be saved to your regular iOS photo library, leaving you the option of how you’d like to use them next.

Personally, I found that PanoSelfie functioned just as promised and it was fun and easy to use. While some photos seemed to turn out a bit blurrier than ideal, a steadier hand would easily fix that problem.

Appearance and Layout:

The layout of PanoSelfie is very user-friendly. That said, it is also very minimalistic, with very few on-screen icons at any one time.

This lack of icons is appreciated overall, however, as it prevents anything from cluttering up your camera’s photo-viewer when you’re working on setting up the frame for a selfie. Deleting unwanted images taken in the app is easy to do (a function designated by a trashcan icon), and after using the app just once, the other few icons in PanoSelfie are easy to understand as well.

Overall, while a little more effort probably would have taken the graphics of this app from a simply basic design to an aesthetically impressive one, both the appearance and layout of PanoSelfie are still above average.

Value:

Available for free through the iTunes Store, PanoSelfie definitely offers consumers a lot for its “cost.” It features an easy to use layout and a unique concept that will definitely be appreciated by all “selfie” aficionados.

While it is somewhat difficult to capture a perfectly clear photo using the app, doing so is also definitely not impossible; a bit of practice and a reliably steady hand should adequately solve this issue.

An in-app option to purchase the “pro version” of PanoSelfie is also available which provides the ability to permanently disable in-app ads.

panoqrPanoSelfie requires iOS 6.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
