Nokia today updated their Panorama app for Lumia devices. This new v188.8.131.52 brings in support for taking panoramas in vertical mode. So, you can capture more height by simply using the camera in portrait mode.
Nokia claims that its an easy-to-use a app that allows you to take your pictures and the app automatically stitches them into a picture view. But I find Nokia’s implementation less intuitive and accurate. I found panorama on iPhone working great and on few other Android devices too. I hope Microsoft Photosynth team helps Nokia in fixing their algorithms!
