gimbal on tripod for pictures?

I tend to try taking car pics at events. So I'm left with panning shots and tracking the cars via tripod. I'm on cheap equipment and a phone. It's not easy but I manage to get a few OK shots.

What I'm wondering is if I get a gimbal, would panning shots be easier?
And what gimbal do I get? I've seen a few mention their own app and basically having to use that app for the gimbal to work. I want something that works independent of an app; simply because it seems most apps limit the features of the phone.

I'm not sure how these things work. LOL

Panning photographs, or panning video? I don't know anyone who uses a gimbal rig for shooting stills. You would use image stabilization, either in the camera body or the lens, not a gimbal rig. If you are shooting slower shutter speeds with a phone, maybe a gimbal rig would be helpful but I've never tried that or seen it. For getting stabilized video, a gimbal rig would be helpful.

I was looking at gimbal rigs last year thinking I might shoot some video. The cheap/intro rig I marked was the DJI Ronin-SC but I don't know how heavy your rig is or what your budget is. If you search for something like "best cheap gimbal" I'm sure you will turn up a lot of recommendations.
