I am able to take a photosphere using the google camera app and using the samsung surround shot camera mode. I can upload photospheres to google+ and add them to google maps views using a web browser manually. Photospheres that are automatically uploaded to google+ are not viewable using google+ app on my mobile device (but they are viewable using a browser) until I manually submit them to google map views for approval.
Whats the deal here? why so much incompatibility? is there any way I can hack my way through this problem?
