Animoto is an iPad app that allows users to make a slide show of pictures and/or videos. It is similar to iMovie with a couple of key advantages that iMovie doesn't offer. The app contains several pre-loaded templates called styles. These different styles include music, background, and animations. After selecting a style, pictures are uploaded. They can be rearranged quickly by dragging into the preferred order. Text can also be added as title slides that are mixed in with the pictures.
The free app limits users to thirty second videos, which unfortunately means only eight to ten pictures. However, teachers can apply for a one year free trial at the following URL:
Animoto is available as an iPad app and can be used through their website, www.animoto.com.
Videos created using Animoto can be embedded or shared on Facebook, Twitter, or YouTube. They also have a unique URL that can be shared.
