A very cool and useful screen recording platform. One click to start recording and at the end of the session you get sharable link. Works well and we use it everyday to help people at https://walkinto.in. Mainly for helpdesk training videos.
Seamlessly record your screen, mic and camera. Unlimited videos. Unlimited storage. Instantly shareable video links. 100% free.

Hello everyone. I work at WalkInto as the CTO. We are a popular overlay platform for Streetview. Basically we let people annotate StreetView with navigation, hostspots and infor windows to tell stories. Very useful for 360 photographers who publish on Streetview.

Anyways, after a lot of push from our user we recently released a VR version. It has turned out quite nice - written with WebVR. It's just a start now but looking at the results we are quite amped up to take it forward and keep adding VR versions of each of our features. Here is an example. Since every WalkInto is in VR now there are around 8000+ of them today.

Would love to hear critique as well as ideas on how to make this better.
Created using walkinto.in. Use WalkInto to tell powerful stories connecting Google StreetView, Google Business Views and Photospheres from Google Views.

I hear you. I guess UX for VR will evolve to maturity through a series of trial and error. Objective feedback and criticism will help in that journey. Thank you.

I Think that "Real Thumbnail" should be use in portfolio !

Panorama Self Hosting | HTTP and HTTPS
With more people using WalkInto Panorama Self Hosting tools everyday it is important that the server you host your tiled images support HTTPS.  Both PanoHost and Amazon S3 has this support by default.  An SSL certificate will cost around $15 for three years and will ensure that your panorama loads on both HTTP and HTTPS urls.

We are getting some reports of bad WalkInto loading speeds mainly from Europe.  Please share as much details as you can if you are facing any slowdown at your location.  Thank you!

We use Pingdom to test loading speeds from different geographies.  Now when tested it gives a 2.6s fully loaded time.  Will watch it more.  Thanks!

Starting 1st of August, Monday you will again be able to use all Streetview PhotoSpheres in WalkInto. This includes every panorama from Street view, all PhotoSpheres published prior to Oct 2015 [Old format, primarily from Google Views] and ones published after Oct 2015, either directly to Street view or through Street view App. In short, if it is a Blue or Orange dot on Street view, you can use it in WalkInto.

Many months back we put out a call for action on WalkInto to form a focus group to help a ‪#‎Canadian‬ teacher figure out ‪#‎Streetview‬ Publishing. She had some interesting ideas. +Neil Cariani  +Greg Twemlow  +Jim Hilker  +Richard English  and a few others met on Google Hangout to discuss with her and give guidance. She, +Melissa Lavoie  of Ontario, has now secured funding from +Ontario Teachers' Federation - OTF  to take Streetview Story telling to her students. We are pumped up to see meaningful projects like these taking wings on WalkInto. Way to go!
!!!! When this idea first hatched, I had been promoting Google My Maps to students and teachers at Bishop Belleau School in Moosonee, Ontario and St. Patrick School in Kapuskasing, Ontario. This ap…

Works best with a VR Goggle. But will work just fine on desktop and mobile as well.

My first impression : the image quality is bad ( not sharp enough , seems blur to me), the 3 D sensation is OK, nice way to introduce menu and sub menu (but not intuitive for sub menu, maybe there is something to help understanding) , where are the arrow to progress ?

That's very promising !
