Pros: Augmented reality is still in nascent stages, but this provides with most state-of-the-art technology. Overall a good software and has some amazing features.

Cons: The text editor is a nightmare. It might take some time in order to use it smoothly. Needs improvement in that area.

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.

excellent service! Very easy to use

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: can be attached to other websites with iframe, works good, IT WORKS, looks reliable, customisable, ease of connecting between rooms

Cons: faster when loading the pictures to the viewer would be better, VERY slow uploading, only 10 pictures per time uploading, only 30 panoramas per tour (when you have a villa to upload ...might need more), reorganizing the pictures on the correct row may be difficult sometimes because its slow.

Overall: actually made tours that work affordably

Pros: Ability to create 360 VR Tours using iPhone and attached fisheye lens. Quick, easy and cost-effective. I feel the quality of the VR tours is comparable to high-end services. I can easily create a VR tour of a home without having to pay and hire a separate company.

Cons: A few crashes and lock-ups. The user interface could be better - needs a better flow. Should be step 1, step 2, step 3 etc.

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.

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!

Pros: I had no idea what to expect in developing a 3D Tour but iStaging did make the whole thing pretty easy. The software is very user friendly and intuitive. Thanks

Cons: The moderator is a little tricky. Also I'd like the ability to have more flexibility with a custom logo and message. Lastlly - an ability to generate a custom URL would be super cool.

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: 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.

There's still some issues with the app it will freeze up, and still a bit confusing.

Pros: A cheap alternative to the more expensive immersive walkthroughs out there. Easy to take video.....

Cons: The app is a little confusing. It freezes up a lot. A more user friendly app would go a long way to improve the experience. Also the quality of the image is on the low end but it is expected for the price point and just using a phone with a lens on it.

This software understand what user want and they prepare everything ready to use.

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: 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

iStaging provides the best costXbenefit relation when it comes to 360 tour assembling.

Pros: The ease of use when creating and editing 360 tours. The platform is fast and responsive and the options for customization are great.

Cons: Lack of an easy embed code output. When you need to embed the tour, there is the need to manually add the iframe HTML code.

Overall: It adds value to the visualization services we provide to our real estate clients.

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

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 Jasmine, 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)
Best Regards, Koen

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!
