Learnings from Launch

26 Apr

It’s been almost a week since we launched UScapeit at Where 2.0 and on iTunes.  Since then, thousands of users have successfully created scapes.  As we’d like even more users to have success creating scapes on UScapeit, we wanted to share some tips:

1. Rotate the camera in a full 360 degree circle, along its axis (you should be “orbiting” around the camera rather than the camera “orbiting” around you.)

2. This rotation should be slow and steady…A 40 second spin is ideal.

3. The more light you have, the more successful you’ll be.  Outdoors is a great place to attempt your first scape.

Check out this video to learn how the app works:

Have you created a scape yet? Have any tips for creating perfect scapes?

EveryScape has finally brought our award winning “streetview for the inside” technology to users.  We have been building immersive content for years for major high end resorts as well as local restaurants, spas, bars, museums, book stores, dentist offices—you name it, we have scaped it.  But we always dreamed of the day when anyone who is experiencing someplace or some event that is meaningful to them could capture that experience for themselves and share it with friends, family, or the world.  Launching today if you are an iOS user and downloaded our new UScapeit iPhone app you can do exactly that.

What you see today on UScapeit is just the beginning of EveryScape delivering on that vision.  Our first version is largely about panoramic photos, but over the next weeks and months you will see other new capabilities coming for the web and mobile versions, allowing you to create truly immersive experiences from these panoramic images and then share them seamlessly via email or post to your facebook page.  For examples of where we are going you can check out EveryScape Eats! on the web or in the app store.  Our mission is to provide you with the easiest and most compelling “experience creator” product in the world.  We hope you enjoy using UScapeit and as always we are committed to your success so please let us know how we are doing in our Fan Central page. If you have already downloaded the app then let Brian teach you how to use it in this video.  If not, check us out in the app store and join us on our great adventure to “Share your life and Scape the World”.

Happy Scaping!
