Spinpod is gaining ground on Kickstarter as a multipurpose tool for smartphone photographers.

If you've ever tried snapping a panorama picture with your smartphone, you know this can be a tricky task. 

Spinpod seeks to ease the experience and result in smoother stitching as it slowly — and, most importantly, steadily — rotates your smartphone in either landscape or portrait orientation. The gadget also promises to help you take motion time lapse photos and serve as a stand.

Spinpod creators Zhiping Chen & Daniel Aharoni are seeking support on Kickstarter. The device is compatible with both iOS and Android devices, as well as cameras, and a threaded tripod mount can attach the Spinpod to a tripod. A delay timer/step interval function lets you step into your own panorama scenes, or create 0.5, 1, 2, 5 and 10 second step intervals for your motion time lapse videos. This is one we hope we get to test.
