I'm currently using Video Pano and Pano as my panoramic app(s). I'm wondering if anyone out there has found a better panoramic app? I liked Pano but can't stand having to line up shots one after the other. Plus the stitching done in Pano is so so at best. Video Pano is easier to use however the quality of the pic can be hit or miss. Anyone know of a panoramic app that's both easy to use AND creates good quality pics?

Here are the three I have tried:

Autostitch - Good results and the most flexible with photo positions. Photos are taken from the camera roll so there is no alignment tool.

Pano - Ok results. Nice alignment tool showing the prior photo offset and faded in the background. Only simple straight line panoramas

VideoPano - Ok, but low res results since the source is a video, not photos. Very interesting app where you use a video panning across a scene instead of photos. Quick and easy to use but only simple straight line panoramas. I find this the most interesting app, but the results are the worst of the three. I'm very interested in how/if this evolves.

FYI - I know OP has tried the second two, just adding my quick overview for others.
