What is PhotosphereViewer.net?

PhotosphereViewer.net provides a service to view one of Android's latest and most exciting features: Photospheres. Photospheres are 360° panoramic photographs which can be viewed interactively on your mobile phone, tablet, via Google Views, Google Plus and Google Maps, whereas the three last-mentioned possibilities are only available if you upload your photos onto Google's servers and share them with the rest of the world.

Personally, I don't like to share everything with Google and other people, especially these days. This is only one of several reasons why I built this website:

How does it work?

This website is based on the amazing work of Joe "kennydude" Simpson, who developed a way to display Android Photospheres in your browser with ease. This website is wrapped around his efforts, making it easy for everyone to enjoy fascinating Photospheres within a few seconds.

Will my Photospheres be stored on your server?

No! The Photospheres are loaded locally in your browser's cache only. We do not save any of your images, EXIF data or other private data. Promised!

How can I share my Photospheres with family and friends?

You can't. Since we focus on your privacy and are not storing your images on our server, it's simply not possible. Use Google Maps or Street View instead to share your Photospheres with the world.

Is this a free service?

Yes, enjoy it and spread the word if you like it!

Help! It doesn't work!

It's most likely that you are using an unsupported browser. PhotosphereViewer.net only works with Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox (latest versions recommended). If you are using a supported browser and encounter problems, please drop me a short email. I'll try to respond as soon as possible.
