Gigapan images on your iPhone

Last december Microsoft released an iPhone version of Seadragon, which is a viewer for Deep Zoom images. By default, Seadragon can not be used to view GigaPan images, but thanks to Daniel Gasienica, this is now different. Daniel released GigaPan Mobile, which is basically a Python script on top of Google App Engine with know-how from the OpenZoom project. This now allows everybody to easily create an RSS feed?XML file which can be added as a source within Seadragon on your iPhone, allowing you to access the panoramas directly on the iPhones multi-touch screen. Fun stuff.

Add the following URL as an RSS feed into Seadragon, to get a my panoramas directly to your phone:
