You’ve just received your 360Penguin camera and you’re ready to go out and shoot some great 360 content. Now, all you have to do is figure out how to get that 360Penguin App we have been telling about.
There are a couple ways to go about getting that app. The first is probably the easiest, if you have a QR code scanner on your phone.
In the box your 360Penguin came in, you’ll find a little fold-out booklet that has all the basics written in it. Yeah, some of it is pretty small. Here’s the important part. Unfold the booklet. On the very last panel, the one labeled ‘7 Downloading App, you’ll see three QR Codes. Find the one that corresponds to your phone operating system. Google Play Store is for Android phones. iOS App Store is for the iPhone.
On iOS, all you need to do is open your camera and it will recognize any QR codes you point it at.
On Android, open your camera and use Bixby Vision, which is standard on most new Android phones, and find the QR Scan button. Point the camera at the QR code and it will scan it. If you have an older Android, you can download a QR scanner from the Google Play Store and use that.
After the code is scanned you’ll be taken to the app page in the store. Tap the download button and you’ll be on your way to getting the app on your phone!
Don’t worry of you don’t have a QR scanner on your phone, we can get the app there with little problems.
