Want to show off the fancy spherical photography prowess of your Nexus 4, but can't find buddy rocking Android 4.2? SphereShare is here to solve your shutterbug problem so that you can post those omnidirectional masterpieces somewhere other than Google+. The app is dedicated to the PhotoSphere feature, allowing users to upload their own photos for quick and easy sharing, or post them to a public gallery for all the world to see. It's like a very narrow Picasa, minus the editing features.

The app can share your PhotoSpheres to all the standard social networks, in individual or gallery form. If you don't have the latest and greatest in Android releases, you can still use the app to browse the PhotoSpheres that have been posted publicly, whether you're on Android 4.2 or not. (You'll still need at least 4.0 to install SphereShare itself.) The viewer works perfectly, emulating the view on the native PhotoSphere gallery. Want to browse a metric ton of Sphere photos from something larger than ten inches? Head on over to SphereShare.net from your desktop.

    Oh god why! Now hipsters are not only going to take pictures of their food, but a 360 panorama of the restaurant where they are eating that food!

    Last year the Apple fans were all crying because they lost their 'elite' status when Instagram came to Android...
    Well, now we have a real 'elite' social photos app (or whatever it is), and this one ain't going nowhere near iOS...

    Cry Apple fans, cry....

      And don't forget, 75% of Android users aren't even on Jelly Bean, making this the elite of the elite!

      ....this is not a happy fact.

        Also... don't forget, Of those 25%, you must be running a nexus device or have a rooted phone where you can put the stock camera app in /system/app/. Note II here, not PhotoSphere for me. I can put it on there, but I like the camera app on the note ii. I'll use this on my GNex

    Would be great if you could log in with your Google account and follow users who post regular, good spheres.

    • QwietStorm

      There's communities for it on Google +

    Will this work with 360 photo (S4) and VR Panorama (Optimus G/GPro)?

  • Gregory Folk

    Just an additional note, this app currently has no search function. You can use it to browse the "newest" and "most popular" photospheres and that's it.

    That's a clone :/
    The first photo sphere community is here: http://photo.merq.org ...
