PicPlayPost: App to Create Dynamic Videos
If you have a smartphone, you’ve likely seen and used various photo collage apps that allow you to add multiple photos that are then combined into one image collage. There are many to choose from and they all work about the same.
PicPlayPost is different.
The PicPlayPost app allows users to create video segment stories, then customize them, including ability to add music, and publish into a unique and one-of-a-kind video collage!
Why a video?
Just like images, video conveys more depth than text. It captures the attention of viewers and draws them in. With YouTube being the second most used search engine in the world, and with the rise of video consumption on Facebook, Instagram and in tools like Twitter’s Vine app, video continues to grow in use online.
Whether to tell a story from your vacation much better, or to use for business marketing as a way to demonstrate the power and possibilities of your product, video communicates so much stronger than text and can be more powerful than images.
Power to the Commoner!
Not so long ago, producing videos was out of the reach of your common person. Today, however, tools like PicPlayPost have brought simple, yet quality video production to the average smartphone user! With studies showing that people can process imagery 60,000 times faster than text, it makes sense to use these simple and yet powerful tools to communicate better to your audience.
Available in the iTunes store as well as Google Play for Android, PicPlayPost is a simple tool to use. To use, simply download the app (free and $1.99 version with more features) and choose from one of the 36 collage designs.
Each collage “frame” has varying layouts.
Next, select your final image aspect ratio such as square (great for Instagram), rectangular or related. Then insert images or videos from your phone or tablet albums and position each in the collage frame of choice. You can change colors and thickness of borders, shrink, or magnify each image or video.
Lastly, you can add optional audio to play with your videos from selections offered or your own music library.
Key to the power of the app is the ability have both images and multiple videos in one collage!
As well, you can adjust the videos, edit the images in size, color, and filters, and edit the music clip selection. It’s a powerful tool in the palm of your hand!
With ability to then share your masterpiece on Facebook, Twitter, Email, Instagram, MMS, and YouTube you’ve got access to the major social sharing networks easily, as well as access to the video file itself.
So whether you want to create a personalized birthday digital “card” with a photo and music, or whether you want to create a catchy product highlight video for your business, PicPacPlay is a recommended tool to have in your smartphone toolbag!
