Name: Nutshell Camera
Hit the plus sign on the opening screen and you’re met with a giant camera button, three numbered circles, and a prompt to take three photos. After the three photos are taken (filling each corresponding circle,) you’re taken back to the first photo to add text and animated overlays such as sunbursts and arrows. After repeating the process with all three photos, hit the play button to see the magic happen — because while you were taking the photos, the app was also recording video, and the result is a super short, documentary-style video with a Ken Burns effect that can be shared via email, text, or social media.
The lack of ability to import media and the sometimes wonky sound quality on the videos are issues for future updates, but the simplicity and fun of the app makes it a perfect tool for book trailers, digital storytelling assignments, promoting programs and services, or just as a fun addition to your photo app arsenal.
