Twitter user @conradev has discovered a modification that allows you to enable Panorama mode for your stock iOS camera application.

One of my favorite features is the customization you can do to the app. With most other navigation apps you are stuck with the default color scheme and imagery, but with Dynavix you can change the colors, the background, …
