Israel-based Slidely, which claims 50 million users across several image apps, recently closed $7.3 million in funding but it was something of a mystery what the cash was actually for. They did say they would produce an iMovie-like app, which is now revealed to be called “Show,” now on iTunes.
Show lets users create movies that stitch together social media photos and videos from social networks and then share across those networks again. It reminds me of Animoto back in the day, but for mobile.
Slidely says what sets it apart is a balance between features and automation, allowing videos to be created easily.
What is useful is that you don’t rely just on photos on your phone. You can elect them from Dropbox, Facebook, and Instagram, as well. Its reminiscent of Flipagram perhaps, but with more features.
The finished HD video is created fast and can be shared on all the usual platforms or saved to the mobile device’s camera roll. Special effects include slow motion or fast motion effects and remixes. Videos are hosted on Slidely and can be embedded.
