For those who have been waiting for the opportunity to take panoramic pictures on your phone, the wait is over. Pano for Android is made by the same folks who developed the hit iOS app, and like the iOS app, it works really well.
Using Pano is simple: take your picture, line up the edge along the left of the picture, and continue snapping away until you're done taking your panoramic shot. When you're done, you click the check button and your images are merged. Simple. Painless. It's awesome.
Settings are pretty nonexistent in Pano. If you press menu, your only option is to enable or disable geotagging. On the main interface, you can only merge your pictures, take another, or rotate the orientation. And really, you shouldn't need to do much more than that.
A little niggle of mine (and maybe it's just me), is that the shutter button on my EVO 3D doesn't take a picture if I've got Pano open. Maybe it was designed for all of the button-less Android phones in mind, but now that I've got one, I want to use it, and I can't. Otherwise, Pano rocks.
Pano doesn't come free but it does come pretty cheap, weighing in at a mere $1.99 for unlimited panoramic pictures, cell phone-style. If you've been itching for this functionality and have been burned otherwise, it's definitely something I would consider buying.
A few more pictures and download links are after the break.
