App recommendation: Fyuse

Published by Matthias Süßen on

My app of the month is called Fyuse. You can use it to take interactive 3D photos and share them with your friends via your homepage, Facebook, Twitter & Co. or Fyuse’s own social network.

The app’s functionality is simple but ingenious. After launching the app, you press the red Record button and move your phone around an object and the app shoots a series of photos, from which it creates an unusual 360-degree panorama. Want an example?

Embed Fyuse images in WordPress articles

There are two ways to convert the Fyuse images into a WordPress article. Either via a plugin that you can download here (the further procedure is described on this page). But it also works without installing the extension. You only have to open your picture in a browser. The easiest way to do this is to tap on the three points in the app in the upper right corner, then select Copy Link and open it in Safari, Firefox etc. A small Split icon will appear in the lower right corner. If you click on it, you will receive an embed code that you can insert into your WordPress article.


At the beginning it takes some practice until satisfactory images come out. Once you have overcome this hurdle, working with the app is really fun. Especially among food bloggers it enjoys great popularity. But the app is also well suited for unusual portraits. Fyuse is designed for the smartphone. That is why the vast majority of photos are also taken in upright format. The app also works in landscape format (see sample image)

Fyuse does not display a logo, advertisement or watermark, which is all the more unusual because the app is free for Android and the iPhone. There are no fees for the use either.
