CamAround 360: Spins Your iPhone 5 Around to Shoot Video, Has Filters, [FREE]

Back in the last week of December we told you about Cycloramic, the neat app that spins your iPhone 5 around (on a flat shiny surface) using the vibrator motor to film video.

Today, a very, very similar app has debuted called CamAround 360. It performs the same functions but also has filters to jazz up your video recordings plus is a free download. Like Cycloramic though, there is no audio with videos filmed.

CamAround utilizes the vibration motors in your phone to get it spinning in a perfect circle. Just set your phone down in an upright position and press record. Your phone will countdown for three seconds before it starts recording. Then it will begin shooting video as it turns on its own for a full 360 degrees. When your phone finishes, it will automatically stop recording all by itself.

Enjoy the wonderful panoramas from your automatic rotating phone!

Features

– Full 360 Hands-Free rotation
– Smooth Video with continuous motion
– 4 Filters for Awesome Video!
– Front and rear facing cameras!
– Watch your iPhone rotate by itself!

Update: According to the developer we contacted, they were working on this idea prior to Cycloramic’s release:

We conceived of it and started working on the App before Cycloramic at a very leisurely pace. When we saw somebody else had done it, we very quickly got to release to capture the interest.

    Dont know about anybody else but for me it didnt work to well. failed to move whatsoever on my counter, and on my table it started off well but had to assist it before i picked it up and put an end to the video. perhaps my vibration motors are shitty.

    Hey Justin – sorry to hear it wasn’t working well for you!

    What device is this.. An iPhone 5? Previous iPhones are heavier and so the vibrations have a lot less effect.

    CamAround works best on polished, hard surfaces – kitchen countertops are awesome!

    Cheers,
    Chris
