Real Estate pano's

I am out on linkedin a lot and belong to several of the real estate photography professionals groups. We discuss what is best, yadda yadda. The common belief is that 'spinners' are dead. I don't believe so and continue to offer them. What I am looking for in this thread is a discussion on what the best possible virtual tour would be. What you like, what you don't like and try to look at the presentation as if you where a real estate buyer and if you where an agent that I need to impress.

Here are two that I have done recently. It's a high end home, but I also do the bread and butter homes as well.

Nothing loads. Just black screen on ipads.

My opnion is that no one can make a living doing real estate, maybe just a little added income.
And 360s only are not appropriate. Good stills show exactly what you want while eliminating anything that might turn people away.

Multiple navigation styles, fullscreen, unobtrusive design work well for real estate.

I am well aware that the tours will not provide a living, they are just the icing on the cake. I get hired for the photography and turn around.

Thanks for pointing out the black screen. I had just added a soundinterface routine that prevents the tours from being viewed on the iPad. So no sound for now :-(

Sound ought to work fine on ipads.
Three things I did notice for html5.

You havent' removed the multiresolution krpano watermark.

And you have autorotate onstart which is incompatible with html5 resolution. When it is ON, tiles will not download.
You can get around that by turning autorotate on using the "onloadcomplete" event.

Autorotate is so damn annoying on touch devices. I'd disable it using a high idletime when someone interacts with your tour.
