We’ve implemented some changes that have lead to a marked increase in site speed, i.e. a reduction of up to 300% in the time it takes for panoramas to load. You can especially notice this improvement on Android and iOS mobile devices.

Awestruck by nature, I decided to hop on a bus that once again took me to this precarious stretch of the road that meanders this part of the Andes and walked my way back. On this outcrop, the Langanuco Valley is like the jaw of a dragon with the peaks on either side jagging up like the fangs piercing the clouds and the valley floor like the tongue holding the gem, in this case the twin lakes of Llanganuco. On the left: Chopicalqui(6,354m), Huascaran East(6,768m). On the right: Chacraraju(6,112m), Pisco(5,750m) and Huandoy(6,070m).

You can create your own stories for the app. You need to prepare these files:

  • A set of panoramas (equirects files): Equirectangular image files must be JPEG format (not progressive), equirectangular, 2:1 ratio, with a maximum size of 4096×2048 pixels.

  • Title of your story: it’ll be used by 360Stories as the name of the story in 360Stories’ launch space.

  • Thumbnail for your story: it will be used by 360Stories in the app’s launch space. The file must be JPEG format (not progressive), 2:1 ratio, 720×360 pixels. It must be called “thumbnail.jpg”.

  • Voice narration audio file for each panorama: please, write on the file title something related to the equirect referred on the voice narration.

  • Ambient audio file for each panorama (optional): it can be the same for more than one panorama. Write on the file title something related to the equirect referred on the ambient audio.

                          * An audio file containing voice narration can play at the same time as an audio file containing ambient sounds.

Please, add all these files to a folder. It’d look like this one:
