We've got our backlog list of things that we know will make Photosynth better, but I'm sure we're only seeing some of the opportunities here. What would make Photosynth drmatically more useful and fun for YOU?

Perhaps consider some integration between PC and mobile. I tried embedding some synths in a web page, which worked fine on a PC. However, on my WP7.5 phone, the page provides links for me to download Silverlight. Obviously, my phone already has that, and even has the Photosynth app. Can't the detection script know I'm running WP7.5 and at least point me to the app?

On my page, I'd provided a link to my photosynths, too. The phone dutifully takes me there, and clicking a panorama tells me to use the link on the PC. Huh? I. Have. The. App. For years, I expect my device to point me to the install I need, and then work, and now IE in WP7.5 on Photosynth's site doesn't.

Yes, I can go to the app on my phone and open my synths, and happily immerse myself in my panos. But aren't there ways for those of us publishing links to photosynths to push adoption of the app in WP or iOS (or others if they come) by promoting our awesome photosynths?

@larocks: Thanks for this. It was a limitation in Windows Phone 7.5 that prevented us doing a better job on viewing uploaded panoramas on Windows Phone. That limitation is being removed in the next version of Windows Phone, and we'll give a much better experience.
