The camera needs to be able to download an app that will shoot photospheres. I am looking for an app that is proven to work. I have heard a lot of talk but I haven't seen anything that will actually do the job. I am not saying there is nothing out there. I just haven’t been able to find anyone that can demonstrate the process. If someone knows how this is works and can actually perform the process with the camera I have described above please help me.

I would suggest you look at both the Nikon Coolpix S800c and the Samsung Galaxy EK-GC110. Keep in mind the Nikon has been on clearance for a while now and I don't see any are available to be shipped; this means you would have to hope one is still available in a local Best Buy store near you. The Samsung is available to be shipped and is also on sale.

Looks like you can install the Android 4.3 Photosphere camera on many different Android devices.
I can't find any report of it being attempted on the Galaxy camera and it won't work on the Nikon Coolpix, so....
A company called D&K Exclusives sells universal zoom lenses that will attach to smartphones, so that may be a route you could take..
As far as an Android Camera with Optical Zoom + Capability to run PhotoSphere, I think you are out of luck for now.
