Animoto Videos – iPhone App of the Week
This is a regular feature of the blog looking at the various iPhone Apps available. Some of the apps will be useful for those involved in learning technologies, others will be useful in improving the way in which you work, whilst a few will be just plain fun! Some will be free, others will cost a little and one or two will be what some will think is quite expensive. Though called iPhone App of the Week, most of these apps will also work on the iPod touch.
This week’s App is Animoto Videos
Animoto turns the pictures on your iPhone into beautiful music videos! It takes just a few minutes to make one, and then you can share and collect them with your friends. Make as many as you like–they’re totally free.
Free App, you can create 30 second videos for free, however for longer videos you need to pay $30 a year.
Sometimes a simple app like this is a nice and easy way to demonstrate the potential of the iPhone.
Simple either use images from your iPhone or use the camera, combine with some provided music and the software (on the web) renders your images as a nice little video.
The resulting videos can make an activity more interesting or make for a nice way of showing a series of images.
However the video will only play on the iPhone, you can’t download it to your computer, what you can do is “share” the video through the Animoto website, as in this example.
