Microsoft has today dropped a new update for Photosynth, it’s panoramic photo application for iOS devices, adding a number of new features and sharing options.

Photosynth version 1.1 allows users to view the top rated panoramas shared from around the world, providing the option to share their own, whilst new panaromas will be submitted into a competition each week to win an Xbox with Kinect.

Sharing options have been added to allow users to publish their panoramas to Facebook and Bing Maps at the same time, coupling that with tools to crop and send images via email. Each new panorama can be edited and then exported to the iPhone’s Camera Roll, allowing device owners to share their images on social networks of their choice via third-party applications.

Microsoft has amended the way users license their content and now provides eight licenses that can be used to protect (or provide permission for use of) panoramas. All of the new features are joined by bugfixes, making the app more stable and easier to connect to external accounts.

You can download Photosynth here or download the update via the App Store.
