You have to download their app to send the photos over to your phone via Wifi. Moreover, you have to turn the app on and connect it to the unit if you want your photos automatically geotagged. I found this to be the most cumbersome part of this camera and what stopped me from giving this five stars. Sometimes I just want to be able to take the picture quickly, not have to launch the app, go into Wifi settings, pick the camera's network, wait for it to connect. If you don't care about having the location of the photo automatically tagged, or if you're in a familiar setting where you can easily find it later, it's no big deal, but this is something that matters to me when I'm traveling.
The plus side of using the Google StreetView app and taking each photo one at a time is you can move your feet out of the way when you start taking photos of the floor. With this software, when I hold the camera high above my head, you'll always see my head and my thumb. (You can probably get around this by screwing the camera onto a monopod or something and taking the picture through the app itself, but then that's something else to carry.) I wish there were a way to scrub this out in their app post-production, since my main motivation was to add 360-degree photos to Google Maps where there currently aren't any photos.
Other than that, Ricoh gave a lot of thought to the app and you can play around with a ton of camera settings to get just the right exposure, aperture, shutter speed, etc.
I bought this particular model because I didn't need a ton of video time and liked the size of the unit and the price point. I'm hoping future improvements will include build-in GPS and the ability to connect to my phone via Bluetooth or something a little more automatic/faster. That being said, it's a solid start into 360-degree photos and video.
The only downside (about 360 photos in general, not this phone) is that there are only a few platforms that offer native support for 360 photos. Facebook and google photos work fine. Youtube works with the videos but not the 360 photos.
