Panorama mode for photographs was one of the main features of iOS 6. While panorama mode is very handy for grabbing skyline shots, it can also have a more practical application: photographing long receipts.

Reader Matt wrote in with this simple but practical suggestion:
I needed to send a fairly long receipt off to a business. Rather than ending up with lot of wasted space and lack of detail by taking the photo from a distance or going through the effort of cutting and pasting multiple photos, I just pulled out my iPhone, set it to panorama and waved it over the receipt like a scanner. attached to an email and done.
The same tactic would work with your preferred panoramic photo app for Android, Windows Phone, BlackBerry or any other platform. Thanks Matt!
