App of the Week: Flipagram

Flipagram LogoTitle: Flipagram
Cost: Free
Platform: iOS and Android

Flipagram is a fun app for creating slideshows from your images. It allows you to combine photos on your device with those from Facebook and Instagram. Once you have selected your desired images, you can crop them by tapping them or reorder them by dragging and dropping them on the screen. Images can also be automatically arranged in chronological order or in a random order.

Images are just the first stage in creating your slideshow. After your images are finalized, you can select the length of the slideshow (either 15 seconds to match the requirements of Instagram or 30 seconds if you want to post it on Flipagram). You can also set the speed at which the images will change, though each image will appear for the same amount of time since there is no option to set a different length for each image. You can also opt to add a soundtrack to your slideshow. If you want to use music as your soundtrack, you can select a track from your device or use the search feature to find songs, which can either be purchased or, in some cases, used for free. If you would prefer, you can instead record your own voice narration for your slideshow.

When you have finished your slideshow, you can email it, text it, or share it on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Whatsapp, YouTube or Tumblr. The final product can also be embedded on other websites using embed code provided on the site where the slideshow is hosted. Flipagram is a quick way to create very professional looking slideshows and a lot of fun to use.
