Pros: Its a handy tool for travel bloggers like me. It give me the edge against my competition. It additionally helps me generate income anywhere I am in the world by selling tours for real estate and property rentals. The app is fairly easy to use and is in constant development, Improving every month. My viewers find it's easy to use and more often than not keeps them on my sites for longer, improving my rankings. Customer service is very helpful, even to someone that's technologically challenged like myself, They take the time to help and solve my problems, It shows they care! The rotator and lens seem to be of durable quality and have traveled with me to several countries now with no real issues. Its small size and ability to work with my iPhone 6s makes it a great addition to my camera gear. The tours are good quality (considering I am shooting them with an iphone6s), stitching is good too. Don't take my word for it, see for yourself, check out 360playa on FB to view some of my recent tours.

Cons: The training videos leave something to be desired. With better more in-depth training the app would be more user-friendly. I have actually considered making my own training videos for them! I find that the hosting fees are a bit high. Not nearly as high as matter port, but high enough that it hurts the pocketbook if you are not using the app for commercial purposes. one thing that bugs me is that some of the processes of creating the tours are done on the i phone and some of it is done on my computer later after its downloaded. I find it very difficult to use the iPhone to check stitching, and picture quality onsite to see if I need to reshoot a pano. I have had to go back to sites to reshoot panos because of a flaw or because I can be seen in a reflection of mirror or glass. most times this is only noticeable on a monitor screen not on the tiny iPhone screen. This obviously is unprofessional of me and many times it's very hard to get the same light as the original day of shooting. Being able to link it to the app on my laptop and fully operate all the features that need to be done on the phone would be ideal so I could view it and make all the corrections needed in real time on my laptop. I'm sure istaging will fix this in the near future as I can't be the only one experiencing this issue

Overall: Additional marketing exposure, a new way of generating income anywhere in the world, additional viewer engagement on my blog

Pros: - It's really easy to use and the Interface is quite straight forward.

- personalization possibilities

- You can make a basic presentation without going into details (like navigation, pointer layout, etc...) and use it for testing purposes only, And then afterwards you can easily replace low-res renderings with high quality ones and keep everything else. If you want to go more in detail about pointers and so on then, you still can without losing worktime.

-Pricing plans are reasonable

- online storage allows everyone to view and on every device

- QR codes to access

Cons: I believe this software is VERY promising towards the future. There is actually almost nothing that I don't like about the software, but some things could be functionally improved:

- The most important thing for me is implementation of steroscopic import (12x1 cube maps and Spheric stereoscopic SBS (tb/lr), but as I heard from a kind commercial, this is in the dev's pipeline... which makes me very happy and impatiently awaiting this feature. :-D

- a default pointer should be allowed to be applied to the project or even account, so that it's default loaded for all new points, but allows a user to change it per point if nescessary.

OR

Once charged a new pointer image, it should at least re-appear in the short list of pointers when creating a new pointer for this project.

-I would make the custom name with fill-in field for a panorama standard, and allow to use a name from the drop-down-list. It would be a lot more efficient... Also when changing a given name it is a pain to reselect "custom" from the drop-down-list again to change it, it's not there already to change...

- I would suggest upload of proper mp3's as music, instead of a 10 sound choice.

- allow link/video playback in VR mode

-Bring VR mode button outside menu (main button)

Thank you for your consideration about these suggestions

and please feel free to make me a beta tester for upcoming versions. I also beta test for other softwares. (NDA is no problem)

Overall: I make 3d-visualizations for businesses about designs for exhibition stands, shops/retail, residential architecture an interior design. I made some projects in 360° and the clients were amazed. Most likely I will continue to work even more with iStaging for my 360 Workflows ! add the stereoscopy import and I'm sold forever!

An excellent 3D VR touring tool. Very quick to learn and use. Value price is excellent vs Matterport

Pros: Can mimic virtually every function that the much more expensive Matterport can do. Although Matterport does perform these "same" functions much more smoothly with zero lag nor any jittery frame rates in transition room to room (as sometimes seen in iStaging) but overall you cannot beat istaging's ease of use, functionality and quality for the price, hands down.

Cons:

Great product for the dollars but could use some software tweaks: (1) My least favorite is that you cannot "walk" down a hallway and into the next room the way you can with Matterport. (staging's clicking a dot to teleport into the next room is just not the same visual orientation and touring feel and always having to re-orient your direction vs Matterport's 'walking' to any point in a room and seeing perspective from there, before walking to the next room from there, like a true VR tour. (2) The staging motion when transitioning/moving from room to room, can lack a smoothness (vs Matterport SUPER smooth when moving room to room or looking around). Those are nearly the only 2 things that suffer vs Matterport which is still the best performer, (but at a higher cost).

Overall: Matterport like features at a more affordable cost. Still wish the istaging software would be able to let is move around "walk" from room to room in a connected manner like Matterport does, vs istaging makes you 'skip' or 'teleport' from room to room making the VR tour disconnected from one room to the next. Matterport's way of moving around is more like you're "walking through the house" vs istaging is like you're appearing in a room to look around and then appearing in another room to look around, very disjointed experience although great for the price. It's the only thing that makes Matterport such a better experience. If you fix that gap, you'll be 2nd to none. Right now you're great, but 2nd to Matterport in the walkthrough experience.

Pros: its doing what it says fluently, working fast in the tour, reliable, can integrate with your webpage easy, is well priced with GREAT support!

Cons: you can only upload 10 images at a time, slow uploading and saving, could have more parameters for personalising the experience of the user such as personal themes so you don't loose time uploading the bottom logo, auto watermark adding to the uploaded pictures, possibility to change initiating colour from grey to other colours or see-through. We are waiting for more, you are Great!

Pros: It's easy to navigate and to create virtual tours in a matter of minutes. Uploading of tours is quick and easy, you can then get them out to customers in no time at all. Great for winning business.

Cons: It crashes on some of the PC'S which is frustrating when you are half way through a tour. Could do with more auto save options as you have to be sure to keep pressing save as you go. Can only load 10 images at a time.

Overall: It is now an integral part of our marketing pack

Pros: I am extremely impressed by the overall quality of the software. It's not a cheap hack and works everytime. Simple to learn and use, I was able to create my first video in minutes. It took just a short time to learn how to insert floor plans. Adding to MLS listings could not be more simple. Hotspots, the ability to tag features with prices and information make it a great experience for the viewer. Customizing icons, logos and contact information for personal branding establishes your authority and brand.

Back end management features give you the ability to organize and scale with your whole organization.

It couldn't be better.. but it is. Add your own background music, insert Youtube vidoes and even embed 3D models. WOW!!!!

Cons: The only thing it lacks for me is the ability to personalize each video from a mailing list. This would be a marketing advantage, if you are an agent with a list, you could send a video with personalized messages.

Overall: Like any software. The value comes in the ability to make your life easier and better. Great value here.

Pros: The price is pretty low compared to others companies that offer the same services. There is no fee for publishing the tour. You can create/edit them on your computer or in your smartphone, which for me is incredibly faster than the PC.

Cons: You have to keep your account active in order to have your tours online. If you cancel your account or downgrade to the free tier you will be able to have only 3 tours with 3 panoramas each. The platform compresses the images, so if you didn't use a good 360 camera you will experiment some noise on your images.

Overall: Price and usability

Pros: The ease of use and constant evolving function provides an interesting customer experience, providing equipment with a good service makes this a winning formula.

Cons: The price hike up 3 times after the major update and interface can be still further improved for some bugs with the editor. Unfortunately the 720 lens thou cover more background, the stitching is bad with ghosting effect and unattractive color. A color editor can be improvise to push up the quality of the VR shots.

Overall: To be able to resell this service as part of interior business in the fastest and easiest way.

Pros: I love that it is so simple to use and time efficient. I can shoot the photos and 'boom'... there it is... a pano tour ready for the world. I am also really impressed with your commitment to customer support. I have had questions and support team has been prompt in their replies and very helpful, resolving every issue. I have looked at your market competitors and found myself coming back to iStaging because I found it the simplest and best value. I am still growing in my application of this, however I have already recommended and shown it to a colleague of mine who is looking to add it to his growing Real Estate photography business. I'm very excited about the possibilities this presents to my clients.

Cons: The only problem I've had so far was a faulty rotator, which support team quickly replaced following seeing the video examples I sent him. I would like to know what techniques are available to get a smoother connection of the images top and bottom of the pano picture, however I think that might be more the 'user' (me) on a learning curve, rather than a problem with the software. Overall, I'm really excited about this.

Pros: It was and easy product to learn to use and I found the preparation a breeze. Only took 1 or 2 attempts to get up and running. The lens and rotater are great and I think it is an affordable alternative for businesses that do not want to spend a lot of money providing a service

Cons: Cannot link to realestate.com which is important factor and cannot put onto Youtube. I did have trouble initially with losing pictures in upload but main issue is You tube and realestate.com. it can be added but is not highlighted as a feature on the property. lighting is an issue as well

Overall: cost effective easy to use reasonable quality.

Pros: I like the accessibility to tools to customize your tour. When you get a home that is unique, your main fear of a virtual tour is that potential purchasers wont notice or understand what is unique about the property, you can add a note or video to highlight it.

While it does take a little bit of getting used to (Positioning the lens just right, etc.), once you get the hang of it you can consistently capture 360° photos that let someone experience the property from a distance.

Cons: I haven't run into anything yet with my limited usage that I can say I don't like.

The editing tools are easy to use, the lens and rotator arrived quickly and without issue, and the price is respectable when you consider the bonus the system can offer to clients.

Overall: This software has added a point of difference to my business, I can now offer 360° tours of a property as a baseline, with the option of stepping up to a professionally done shoot. I look forward to using this more.

Pros: The price cannot be beat, especially compared to Matterport! I like that it's a DIY solution so I don't have to hire a photographer, and with the fisheye lens attached to my phone I don't need an expensive 360 camera. I love that I can brand it to myself and use my own logo instead of the iStaging logo.

Cons: There are some stitching errors using the fisheye lens no matter how slowly I turn in a circle. And I don't like that you have to log into the app using wifi. I have a listing out in the country with no wifi, so the first time I went to take pictures I couldn't do it with no wifi. The next time I logged in at home, drove over there, and since I was already logged in it worked for a while. But then I got an error message and had to go back to the home screen and it logged me out. It took me several visits to the house to get a full set of photos. I also wish we could put the custom logo on the ceiling and not just on the floor.

The answer to my virtual tour/reality prayers!

Pros: Pretty Good app, very stable. Takes a few sec to connect to the Rotator and its ready for taking photos. Time delay, HDR, rotation speed and lens settings are the only controls. It allows for full editing of pics, adding makers, nots, and highlights is easy. They are adding new features every couple of months.

Cons: Biggest grip isn't the software but the clamp on the rotator, it barley holds my iPhone 8+ when centering the lens as recommended. an adapter would be nice

Maybe an LED lighting setup for lighting up the darker corners but HDR helps

No blur edit tool.....yet

30 pictures per project max can be a little low for some of the larger properties but you just have to get creative with your maker placement.

Overall: Starting a new business isn't easy, finding the right tools to succeed can be the hardest part. Lets just say my job just got a whole lot easier.

Pros: The process is easy to follow and the results are great! I use this software to enhance my real estate listings and I find that buyers and sellers alike really appreciate the quality and ease of use.

Cons: It takes alot of time to put it all together, but I imagine similar programs would take just as long, so not a huge deal for me.

Overall: When a potential buyer has a chance to see a property in such an immersive way it enhances their experience of the property - and if they don't like what they see they don't call and waste my time asking questions about a property that won't work for them.

Pros: I like that you can edit seamlessly on both desktop and mobile devices. It has allowed us to quickly snap the photos, sit down and edit efficiently at the desk, or edit on the run with our phones. It is very intuitive too. The branding is wonderful and the ease of sharing links and embedding is amazing.

Cons: I would like to be able to add custom directional icons and have the software keep that custom icon/png/jpeg on its server so we don't need to upload each time we'd like to use any custom icons. I believe the current software requires uploading custom icons each time you want to edit. This would allow a more customized virtual tour.

Overall: We're able to showcase our homes to potential buyers and clients before they even step foot in the home. The virtual tour software simply makes marketing the home much easier as you truly get a sense of the space and flow of each floor plan and layout.

Pros: The software is quick and easy to use. Great value for the ability to create VR plus the ability to brand our company is also great.

Cons: Sometimes ordering the photos for the tour is a bit buggy but it's a minor problem. The issue is when you are trying to order the photos a lot of times the other photos will come out of order or the tour will jump one photo up or down the spot you want by a long ways.

Overall: Being able to complete VR Tours myself pretty quickly

Pros: Affordable and there is no expensive and bulky camera equipment needed. Good smart phone camera needed though - we experienced significant difference in video quality between an iPhone 6 and 8. The iStaging app works well.

Cons: Requires time to put the actual tour together in the program. You have to connect all the individual panoramas and connect them. Easy to do once you figure it out but time intensive. Also, for our purpose in Real Estate, we would like a widget with a video preview & "watch video" option that we can put on our website.

One last thing- the rotator piece is a bit flimsy but has held up so far.

Pros: All functions are on line. User can select and control what to see. Just click and got it. This also responsive and support all devices.

Cons: Not seen yet. really! The iStaging may be try to study what people need and develop the most complete software for 360 Panorama.

Overall: I make a great website that surprise all users. They can search and view the places before they come. Make them plan and prepare without losing their time.

Pros: Easy to upload to the platform, no need extra space to storage the files. The 360 degree pictures provide circular environment scenes.

Cons: So far so good! The monthly fee for uploading pictures is little bit higher. The number of the pictures could be increased to 30 or 40 more.

Overall: I have been sharing and exchanging the pictures to friends for the happiness and friendships. it is an app for life long.

Over all its a reliable product and we use it for most of our work. Compiling a tour takes long.

Pros: Its relatively good value for money and has some nice info features as well as quick load times and its stable.

Cons: The online editor is terribly difficult to use and slow and cant seem to handle all the features. It takes way to much time to author a tour.

I don't like the forced branding on the no premiere version. And the new price increase and three image limit will kill the software off. All our tours are more than three images, that's what allows istaging to compete with Matterport.

Overall: A cheaper alternative to Matterport with comparable output and a little more branding.

Hi Jared. Thanks for your review. Please note that the three image limit will only apply to users of the Basic plan (which is free). It goes without saying that all our customers will be able to upload many more than that.

very easy to use. started doing live tours from day 1 :)

Pros: Very easy to use. The Live tour editor was very handy and had many possibilities. The video.link option is very usefull.

Cons: Would be very usefull to have an undo button while editing a tour, since I uploaded an image by accident at the "preview photo" section and lost my panorama.

Overall: Created virtual tours for my clients and got into VR an AR mentallity in a very simple and affordable way.

Pros: Easy to use! Even some people with not as much experience with computers can use it. A smart phone is all you need to make awesome videos and clients LOVE it and are so impressed! I combine these tours with drone photos and my clients are thrilled.

Cons: That I cannot edit photos. I missed a blur in one shot and did not have the chance to go back to the house to reshoot that angle. I would love to be able to edit a photo.

Overall: Clients are very happy, more potential clients are calling wanting me to video their homes and get the listing!

Hi Lora, great to hear about your experience! You can actually edit the photos after they are captured. Please reach out to our support team through the widget in the bottom-right of our website, and we'll walk you through how to do that!

Pros: very easy to use, Basic-Plan is free, free addons, good range of nice incidental music to use for the tours

Cons: The only thing I'm missing: the option to change the colors (would be good for those who use the tours for embedding in their websites, for example Real Estate Brokers)

Overall: For me the best option to present 360°-Virtual Tours of our properties. Clients are impressed!

I have been using ISTAGING for several months as a real estate agent. It is a very valuable tool.

Pros: Ease of use, photo upload speed, brand & non-branded views, hot spots, 20 views per level, pricing, ability to set the view angle, use of hot spots.

Cons: Really, nothing to complain about. There are a few other services out there slightly similar to ISTAGING but ISTAGING is more affordable and their software has more features and is easier to use. Although one can use their smart phone to take panoramic photos, if a user plans to create a lot of virtual tours I recommend the highly affordable 360 camera called insta360one which costs very less. But, for a start, using your smart phone with their rotator and lens clip is ok.

Overall: Great virtual tours for homes.

Pros: i like that you actually can walk in the house but from your phone ( for customer) and for as (users) that you do it prom your phone/tablet.

Cons: it think you should add application of the lay out , that you'll have some traditional sketch's , and when users upload live tour them can created the sketch of the hose himself in the app

Pros: An awesome concept that delivers 720 degree virtual tours. If it works it's a franction of the price of Matterport.

Cons: No start up support. No live chat support. Support is from a time zone that is the opposite of the United States and it's only in the form of emails. Not sure it really works with the rotator that they push. Camera seems to lock up as the rotator is moving too fast. After 5 or 6 scans the camera shuts down. Very unclear on how to make hot spots function. I will get it all figured out but it leaves a poor taste to have to pays for two months of a product just to figure out their kinks.

Overall: If I can get it to work, it will be an awesome boost to my marketing.

Pros: Easy to use and quick, especially with an iphone. Relatively cost effective product. Not a large bulky product. Main cost is the phone being used, which most users already have themselves.

Cons: It needs a bit of tweaking. The save function needs some work. If a save is unsuccessful when editing, it needs to show that it was unsuccessful a bit large or bolder. The actual viewing experience for an end user, it would be great if the rotation speed would be increased slightly.

Overall: Too early to tell yet.

Pros: It's easy to use and very affordably priced. The picture quality is great and images load fast. The software in and of itself would be a good deal at this price but the fact that you also get free gear just makes it be a no-brainer.

Cons: I wish you could put simple little text hovers or tags over things. Kinda like the matterport tags ... "granite countertops", etc. You can put hotspots that will link to notes, etc upon clicking but that kinda chops up the user experience.

Overall: Create virtual tours without massive startup costs.

Failed to get WebGL context. Your browser or device may not support WebGL.

However, it seems to be fixed after rebooting and clearing the cache from Chrome.

Overall: This is game changing for Real Estate! Previously, I have purchased Matterport tours but now I can create the 3D tours on my own that include outdoor spaces and any other areas that are interesting. The software is easy to use and I'm very impressed with the finished tours. Great job Istaging!
