(Telegraph) – Google has launched an iOS version of its Photo Sphere app which takes 360-degree images and stitches them together to make immersive panoramas that can be uploaded to Google Maps.

Previously the app was only available on Google’s own Android platform, having launched around a year ago. The move is part of Google’s drive to attract users to its services even when they haven’t adopted its operating system.

To take an image you simply open the app and move the camera when instructed to enclose a superimposed yellow dot with a white circle. In this way the app can tell you which area needs to be photographed next. Once you have finished, the image can be uploaded to Google Views. They can also be made to be searchable by users scrolling around in Google Maps using a GPS geolocation marker.
