Microsoft's Photosynth panoramic photo app is now available on the Windows Phone Marketplace.

There were signs back in February that Microsoft's Photosynth panorama app would be making its way to the Mango platform and today, those rumors have been validated, as the photo-stitching tool is now available on the Windows Phone Marketplace. The app allows users to capture spherical 3D panoramas, which can then be shared via Microsoft's service to Facebook, Twitter, and Bing.

Photosynth launched on iOS last April, but was excluded from Microsoft's own mobile platform due to camera API issues with Windows Phone 7. These problems were apparently resolved with Windows Phone 7.5 (Mango), though it clearly took some time for Redmond's engineers to fully port the app over to the Marketplace. Users with Mango-equipped handsets can download the free app here. Users without Mango, on the other hand, can't download apps anyway.
