It doesn't work yet as it should. I have tried .zip from link above same version from the same position with One X and S3. Feeling during taking photos and results are completely different. It feels like One X sensors are misbehaving.

I'm using OrDroid 7.1.0 (1.31 hboot).

I am looking forward to this, I really hope that the one touch menu gets implemented into Sense.

Wonder how these would look on the HTC DNA/J Butterfly screens...

a) As I've pointed out numerous times, panoramas have a problem with nearby subjects because of parallax. Your subjects are mostly far away, and don't have clearly-defined edges which are obscuring more distant scenery, hence parallax is less of an issue. That makes this about as easy a subject as you could hope for. Doubly so since the sky is overcast and so the exposure level doesn't vary so much from frame to frame.

b) There are clear stitching errors in your pano, too. Surprisingly many, actually, given how far away the subject is. Open the thumbnail below to see some of them circled. There are more, I'm sure, but I got bored of finding and circling them. Some are worse then others, for example the repeated treelines, repeated island, blurred island edge, and the zig-zagging horizon.

I'll add, by the way, that the stock HTC 2D pano tool is also absymal. It appears to make absolutely no effort to warp images, and simply aligns and fades them instead, leading to clear zig-zags in what should be straight lines like horizons.

The thing is, much MUCH better results should be possible. Attached is a pano shot not with the HTC One X, but with my Sony RX100 compact camera. (I've resized it to the same height as your pano.) It's a much more challenging subject, although nowhere near as bad as expecting to get a decent pano standing in the middle of a small room.

My image is -- other than brightness / contrast / color adjustment because there was a strong difference in exposure level and the bright sun / water biased the exposure too dark -- straight out of camera. No hand-tweaking of alignment was done, nor any local retouching of any kind.

It's stitched by the camera itself, which doubtless has a far less powerful processor than the HTC One X does. If the Sony can do this, the HTC One X should be able to do far better -- but so far it can't.

wrong nexus
Hey guys,
i've been trying to use photosphere for a couple of days on my Nexus S with custom ROM Xylon (android 4.2.1)
and i miss some things like the ability to share the pano to google maps, and also when i touch the edit icon (3-circle-venn), i get the "you don't have any app to complete this action" message.

As soon as i heard of the G+ player, i tried sharing it on g+ and here's the result (after trying many times):
plus[dot]google[dot]com/photos/115668189587438646263/albums/5824906965871823873/5824906969810603650

although i wanted something like this:
plus[dot]google[dot]com/photos/110023707389740934545/albums/5808606988734372865/5808606991682743250

(couldn't post links because it's my first post, sorry.)

could anybody help in this point? thanks in advance.

also: how to do that little planet effect? (i suppose it's on that EDIT button)
