Starting with Apple's native panorama application, the iPhone camera is capable of opening up a wider world. Below is a list of apps to help expand your horizons.
Pano by Apple Inc
Every year the iPhone gets better and better and the Pano camera feature helps to elevate the iPhone to another plateau. With the Pano camera, you can pan from left to right or right to left by tapping the arrow before you begin to shoot. To ensure seamless stitching, it recommended that you use you follow the horizontal line as you pan across. This feature also offers a superior resolution. We also recommended that you use iMovie or Instapan to creative videos afterwards.
Photosynth by Microsoft
Photosynth enables you to stitch photos seamlessly as you move from left to right and top to bottom. With a black and gray grid as the backdrop, a rectangle outlined in green with a point in the middle, stitches the previous image as you pan across the terrain you are photographing. When you are done, you have the option to she to Facebook twitter, bing maps, photosynth.net, email, or your camera roll. Photosynth is FREE in the App Store.

DMD Panorama by Dermander
Most panorama apps have a similar functionality; they all pan from left to right, stitching photos together as you move. Yet, each app offers something unique in terms how this process works. For example, Dermander uses a yin yang symbol that comes to together to make a complete circle when you arrive at the right intersection of your stitch. The app also provides a ways to add tags to your photos, geo information, and save panoramas to Facebook, twitter, email, camera roll, and Dermander’s cloud-based service. This app is $1.99 in the App Store.

Autostitch by Cloudburst Research
Autostitch is another great panorama app with a unique stitching process. Like Photsynth and DMD, you move your camera from left to right. However, instead of lining up your photos at different intersections, you freely choose the integrals between each shot, with each photo placed in the bottom right hand corner until you are done. Tiles are then generated in the form of an evolving mosaic until your panorama is complete. You can save to Facebook, Twitter, email, or camera roll. The app is also $1.99 in the App Store.

360 Panorama by Occipital
Similar to Photosynth, 360 panorama allows you to pan from left to right, top to bottom in order to get the widest possible depth to your panorama. As you move across the area you are capturing, the panorama gradually comes together as if you were painted it on with a brush. A grid background provides an underlying structure, but the app only requires that you move to fill in the missing areas of your image. Magical! This app is also available at a great price at $.99 in the App Store.
