panoeasy

hi gang, I've been busy with Facebook, Twittr etc. and not been doing all that much Panowork. Today I received a mail about "panoeasy" which apprently came from Easypano. The issue I have is that when I went to click on the Link to have a look I had a msg warning me that this is leading to a non normal webpage that may contain virus's... hhhmmm. So is the panoeasy thing real or a con and has anybody used it yet?
If I only had an hour to chop down a tree... I'd spend 45 mins sharpening the axe.

Just found this link via google... hhhmmmm... I sent easypano a mail asking for clarification. If this is a real product then they should:

  • inform us
  • ensure we don't get virus warnings
  • market it differently


However if this is safe and not asking me to devulge much privacy... well then this becomes an interesting little app and something to add to my marketing efforts.

So it's in iPhone, iPad App (free app).

I just took a look at the App via iTunes Store.

It is from Easypano Holdings http://panoeasy.ieasypano.com/

No wonder Tourweaver bugs haven't been corrected, what with the programmers dedicated to this!

Then there's this link... which whilst on the applesite makes me think this is dodgy as the support link looks very suspicious. Weird... the whole thing smells a bit wrong... did EP suffer from a cyberattack with some fake news planted?

ieasypano.com.... is that one of their sites??? as said the new site is away from this platform and off brand and looks poorly executed.
Hey EP, if you'd like me to create and develop your branding for this new product then you should contact me. If this is a real product and you can see my confusion, then you'll benefit from better design and a controlled launch concept. ;-)

ieasypano.com is redirecting to http://www.tour-hosting.com which is a hosting platform created by Easypano some time ago if I'm not mistaking.

Hi gang,

today I received a mail from Easypano officially confirming the launch of panoeasy. I for one was unsure of the authenticity of the product due to the quiet launch and Spartan new site. I also was unable to find a search result in EP search above. But rest assured it's the real thing and will allow us and or others to upload panos to iphone and android devices.

What would be cool if we all could publish a tour directly to Facebook for example. Maybe we'll get an update for that at somepoint... unless of course you guys have a solution somewhere already?

You can now show stuff on Facebook in an iframe. (not on a personal page btw, only company/fan/etc. pages)

here some tutorials.
Make sure your tour doesn't exceed 520 pixels width.

It's also possible to show your pano's directly on you or other's wall, but you need to have your site 'whitelisted' by facebook. And you can only link directly to swf files. Don't know if it will work with Tourweaver, as I haven't played yet with the swf output.
You can see my playground under construction here if you click 'wall' you'll see 2 swf pano's, if you click 'ejemplos' you'll see some not very good working stuff in an iframe.
