There are a slew of applications on iOS that allow you to share photos with friends and loved ones. In order for me to stand up and take notice of a photo sharing app, it has to have something that makes it special. It needs to do more than simply upload photos to a social network or apply some simple filters that make a photo look rustic. I want to see an app that actually does something cool with my photos.
With Pixntell, you get an app that actually brings something new to the table. It allows you to take your favorite photos and create a slideshow that you can share with your friends. Best of all, you can record sound with each photo, so you can take your friends on an audio and visual adventure through your photos. It’s a great to way to make your photos tell a story through what your friends and family can see and what they can hear.
This awesome photo sharing app normally costs $0.99, but for a limited time, you can grab it from the App Store for free. If you want to create awesome slideshows with audio using your photos, download the app quickly, because it won’t be free for long!
Using The App
The app allows you to choose up to five photos to create a video slideshow. To get started, click “Start A New Project” on the top of the main menu. It will ask you to give the video a title. Simply type in a title that suits you and click “Done.”
To add photos, click the “+” button on the top right of the screen. You can choose to take a new photo, use an existing photo, up to five recent photos, or all photos from a certain date (up to five). If you choose existing photos, it will bring you to your camera roll, where you can select photos from your library to tell your story.
After you choose your photos, click “Next” on the bottom of the screen to add audio to your photos. It will show you the first photo and you will need to click the microphone symbol on the bottom of the screen to record audio. Click the pause button when you are finished recording. Swipe to the right and repeat this process until you’ve recorded audio for each one of your photos.
When you finish recording all of your audio, click the save button on the bottom right of the screen, and you will be taken to the final screen of the process. From this screen, you will be able to share your slideshow on Facebook by clicking the Facebook logo. You can also click the YouTube logo to share the video there. The bottom button is used for sending the slideshow in email to a specific friend or family member. Of course, you can also click the slideshow itself to watch it and make sure it meets your approval.
The app is definitely easy to use. Even the least tech-savvy users can create awesome voice narrated slideshows to share with loved ones. It has all the features you need, and it comes in a slick, easy to use package.
The app is limited to five photos in each slideshow, but you can upgrade to more through a $0.99 in-app purchase.
This is an awesome app for sharing photos in a different way. If you are bored with the same old photo sharing apps, this one is worth checking out. Best of all, you can grab the normally $0.99 application for free for a limited time. Don’t wait though, the app will be $0.99 again before you know it!
