We have experimented a lot in Panoramio along 2010 and 2011, and thanks to the Panoramio Community we have learned a lot about the geotagging and in general about how a product needs to be shaped to build an amazing community like ours.
We started a strong 2012 with many new features such as the new uploader and a new way to explore photos in Panoramio, and we have a long way to go this year with lots of surprises that we are finalizing to make Panoramio the best geotagging community in the world.
While innovation is important, it is also important to stay focused, and it is with this aim that we are announcing now that we are removing two features from Panoramio that were used infrequently so we can direct our energies to those features that are used the most and to new features that we are developing at the moment.
In the following days, we will take down the iPhone uploader, and geotagging with Google Latitude, and we will keep the experience we gathered while developing those features for future improvements.
