This is a game changer.
Every once in awhile there comes along a disruptive product that challenges the norm. We believe the Sphere app and Galileo integration is one of those products.
The founder and CEO of Sphere, Charles Armstrong explains: blog.up.co
Here are the top three tips for getting started with Galileo + the Sphere app:
1. When you insert your iPhone into Galileo, be sure it fits snugly so that it doesn’t fall out or wobble.
2. Open the Sphere app and tap Galileo from the menu. Once the Sphere app and Galileo are connected, rotate your iPhone to landscape. You’ll feel the Galileo “pop” into position – once fully extended horizontally. (Also, be sure the iPhone orientation lock is disabled. Watch this video to see this in action: https://vimeo.com/73265898)
3. If you have people in your immediate proximity, ask them to remain still while your iPhone is pointed at them. For best results, avoid placing your Galileo too close (within 4 feet) of other objects.

In 3 minutes you can record a sphere, view it, and share with anyone. (Sphere sharing options include: Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Google+, Email, text, HomeAway and VRBO and more options planned.)
It takes about 90 seconds for the Sphere app – paired with Galileo – to shoot around 40 photos that are then stitched together into a spherical image. The processing takes about a minute. Publishing to Sphere takes less than 60 seconds. Then the sphere is shareable.
If you own a business – and don’t want to engage a pro photographer – you’ll appreciate the value of the Galileo paired with the free Sphere app to create spheres like this one: https://www.thesphere.com/127365 and then add it to your website with nifty embed code.
Sphere + Galileo works with iPhone 4S, 5, 5C, and 5S.
