If you’re looking to make a vast amount of Instagram photos more interesting, the recently released Flipagram app may fit the bill. The app turns Instagram photos into a video slideshow, complete with audio. The app was created by three avid Instagram users who wanted to bring their photos from the social network to life as short movies to share. After logging in with your Instagram credentials, it’s very easy to create a Flipagram. You first choose the particular photos for your video and the order they should appear in the video. Then you can add a title and adjust the speed of the photos appear. Once the video is created, you can email the video, save it to the camera roll, or share it on Facebook or YouTube. Overall, the process was really simple. Even though I’m not exactly a heavy Instagram user, I went ahead and made a video example. Click here if you can’t see the video. Also, as a nice touch, all of your previously created Flipagram videos are automatically stored in the app’s library. Flipagram is designed for the iPhone and iPod touch but does work on the iPad. It can be downloaded in the App Store for $0.99. The developer told us that they are working on a host of new features to be included in a future update, which is great news. I like the app, and I think its got some great potential to improve the Instagram experience.
