Cycloramic for iPhone 6 turns your charger into a panorama machine

Clever app turns iPhone 6 charger into hands-free panorama machine



When Tim Cook unveiled the gorgeously curved edges of the iPhone 6, I thought apps that use the iPhone 5/5s’ flat edges to create hands-free 360° panoramic photos and video, would quickly sink into the App Store abyss, but the minds at Cycloramic have created a brilliant work around, and all you need is your iPhone 6 charger.

Cycloramic for iPhone 6 was released on the App Store over weekend and brings with it the power to turn your iPhone charger into a panorama machine by simply laying it facedown on a smooth surface, and delicately wedging your iPhone 6 between its power prongs. Using the iPhone 6’s vibration motor the new Cycloramic app can rotate 360 degrees to capture videos and photos, completely hands-free.

Check it out in action:

Capturing a 180 degree panorama with the iPhone 6 takes less than 3 seconds, and the app comes a Guided Mode too that will help you take perfect panoramas. Unfortunately, if you already bought Cycloramic for iPhone 5 and 5s, you’ll still have to pay $1.99 to get the new app for the iPhone 6.
