Photosynth for iOS
One last thing: If you've got an iPhone 4 or iPad 2, there's an excellent Photosynth app available. It doesn't cover all the possibilities of what you can do with Photosynth (namely multiple points of view), but it takes all the guesswork out of 360-degree panoramas.
Once you take your first shot, it will provide you with guidance on when to snap the next picture, and tell you if you've gone so far that it can't tell where you're at in the room! Best of all, it will stitch the panorama together right there on your device so you don't have to upload it first to see if you like the results.
