Organizing spins has been difficult for some of our users. To address this challenge, we’re introducing our new tags feature. Tags are the best way to give our users organization as well as flexibility. The benefit to using tags versus traditional folders is that each spin can have more than one tag, but it wouldn’t be able to exist in more than one folder.


We love hearing from our users and we really try to use your feedback to improve our products. Some of the most common requests we receive have to do with spin editing in one way or another: “could you add a curve interface like in Photoshop for better brightness adjustment,” “is there a way to fix wobbly spins if the object isn’t perfectly centered on the table,” or “is there a way to remove parts of the background?”

Well, we’ve been very hard at work this summer developing a completely new spin editor with a load of new features all based on your input and we’re thrilled to announce that it is available in beta starting today!



It’s now possible to add interactive 360 spins from your Arqspin account to Apple iBooks using the Arqspin iBook Widget. This new widget works seamlessly with Apple’s iBooks Author, the official content creation tool for the popular iBooks interactive publishing platform.


We are very pleased to announce the release of a new version of Arqspin for iOS. This version provides full support for iOS6 and the new iPhone 5 layout, better Facebook integration, and includes several bug fixes and interface improvements. In particular, publishing spins over 3G and WiFi connections should now be more reliable.

It’s now possible to see the total number of times your spins have been viewed from your shared spins page. Note that this is different from your monthly view total, which is displayed in your account page. We plan to roll out more fine grained analytics over time. Please tell us what you would like to see in the comments section below.

Normally, a Spin is an “outside-in” type of visualization in that the user is looking AT an object from some position that lies on a perfect circle around the object. However, the opposite is also possible. The user can look at the outside circle from the middle of it.

In fact, many of you have asked us about what happens when you place your iPhone on the rotation stage and take a Spin of a location instead of an object. Well, you get a slightly different type of panoramic picture. It is not an immersive experience like a standard panorama, but it is something different because there is a change-of-space-and-time aspect to it. Here is an example of one such Spin that I took when I visited the top of Mt. Etna in Sicily a few weeks ago:

We’re testing a few new app features internally these days. One gives you the ability to create spins from imported movies captured with an external video camera. Here are a few spins we created using a Nikon D700 + 105mm micro prime lens.

Do you all know any nature photographers/bloggers we should contact?


We just launched a Tumblr blog and we’re looking for some Tumblr love. Please follow us!

We will use Tumblr to showcase beautiful spins. This blog will remain focused on technology, app updates, service updates, information (and fun!).
