Works nicely

Schönes, leicht zu bedienendes Plugin für virtuelle Wanderungen zwischen 360°-Fotos. Ich benutze es für die Webseite eines Appartment-Hotels. Der User kann bequem durch sein (virtuelles) Appartment spazieren. "Info-Hotspots" erlauben uns, auf die Besonderheiten der Zimmer hinzuweisen. Etwas knifflig ist der Umgang mit dem Plugin bei mehrsprachigen Webseiten – aber wir haben es gelöst. Die kostenlose Version ist etwas beschränkt – so bald es mir gelungen ist, auf "Premium" upzugraden, mache ich eine neue Besprechung. Für den normalen Gebrauch genügt die Basisversion. Der Support reagiert sehr schnell, vielen Dank dafür!
