Panoramas being my specialist area...

Cheap (free), powerful but a steeper learning curve than some apps  
would be Hugin. Hugin has a *very* active team of developers, so make  
sure you've downloaded a recent version.

Autopano Pro (nowhere near $379, not sure where you got that) is the  
easiest to use and the most automated, but can lack control if things  
don't do what you expect.

PTGui (PanoTools Graphical User Interface is the reason for the  
mouthful of a name) is what I use (the pro version, which has things  
like batch stitching and HDR which you won't need) and combines quite  
a bit of the ease of use of Autopano with a huge amount of control if  
you want to do more complex things.

All three of these work happily with multi-row panoramas and full  
sphericals.
