Google releases iOS version of Cardboard Camera app

In a Monday announcement, tech biggie Google said that the availability of its Cardboard Camera app is being expanded to Apple’s iOS platform. The app – which enables users to create 360-degree virtual reality VR images – was thus far available only on Android.

Announcing that the Cardboard Camera app is now available on the Apple App Store, Google said that the app can be used for iPad and iPhone users to click beautiful VR photos and share them with their family and friends.

The Cardboard Camera app is not meant to be a professional-grade VR camera system. It is more like a VR version of Google’s Photo Spheres, and it asks users to capture images with slow and steady rotations, and then stitches those images together.

The Cardboard Camera app basically gives users the ability to tap into the iPhone and iPad’s camera to capture VR photos, and subsequently upload them where they can be viewed by others.

The uploaded images are stored on Google's servers and can be viewed by others with the help of the Cardboard Camera app. Moreover, users who upload such images can also generate a link for sharing the images with family and friends on social networking sites.
