Some iPhonography experiments

In response to "Dave's Apps Recipe Book Project" I'm throwing my hat into the ring and will try to show a few of my iPhone apps and what they do. As a complete novice at this I'm not sure how useful this will be to anyone else, but I can assure you that I'm having a great time playing with my iPhone and iPad. These photos are all from the iPhone. Maybe I'll do another post sometime on the iPad apps.

Using the 360 Panorama app, which takes a series of photos I took this untrimmed strip of our garden.
I then chose Stereographic Mode and got this result. It is possible to make a 360' photo if you take a full circle of the photo.
 Using a photo of my bookshelves
I then used my Kaleidoscope app using 20 segments to change this image to this:

This is achieved by a bit of finger twiddling and makes thousands of varying images. Next I tried my FishEye app to the same section of my library.

I also have AutoStitch which stitches a series of photos into a panoramic scene, and is a lot of fun but I'm a bit more keen on 360Panorama. As well, I have Hipsamatic and CameraFlash, neither of which I've had time to master. I started installing free apps but have found it sometimes pays to upgrade to a paid one.
