PicPlayPost: iPhone Video App Review
We love mobile media. So it’s really not rocket science to realize that any app that makes creating, editing or sharing mobile media in a smart new way is going to get some attention here at The iPhone App Review. That’s just one of the reasons why we were glad to get our hands on a new app called PicPlayPost this week. This universal beauty comes to us thanks to the folks at Flambe Studios LLC, and we’re super pumped about telling you all the juicy deets about this sweet new app.
PicPlayPost allows you to create customizable media collages. Choose your ratio and pick from 36 fully adjustable frame styles. Then it’s time for your media to do the talking. Add photos and videos to the mix and get to customizing. You can adjust darn near everything, from the zoom on individual photos to the color and contrast in the background. Flip orientations, rotate your pics, replace them, frame them, edit the videos you add, and more.
Then, when your collage is perfect, it’s time to share. This app integrates instantly with Facebook, Twitter, email, clipboard, MMS and even Instagram. Not only do these bad boys look fabulous, they are sure to give you an edge over your buds. They can update a picture of their dog, but can they post three pics and some sweet, edited video clips in one bad mamma jamma of a frame? Well, if you tell them about the app they can. So we suggest getting it first to claim top bragging rights.
Layout & Design:
There’s no doubt about it, this app is beautiful and so are the media frames made with it. Using PicPlayPost may take a bit of practice though. There are a ton of features tucked into this app, and accessing them all isn’t always the easies. We highly recommend spending some time with the info or help file, which gives you basics. For example, you can tap any media item twice to bring up a replacement menu. But the single tap to edit, rotate, resize, etc. gets a bit tricky. Or, you can always touch and hold (for a long time) and move your media around. Just remember to be a bit patient.
Despite a few issues with the control complexity, we still dig this app. It’s pretty easy to use and the results really are beautiful.
At the time of this review, the PicPlayPost iPhone app is available for just $.99. That’s a heck of a deal folks. If you’re a fan of sharing media, this is definitely an app you’ve got to check out. It’s a great value and a cool new way to showcase your media in a beautiful way. Get it, before your friends get it first.
PicPlayPost iPhone app requires iOS 4.2 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
