Today's Best Apps: Video Cover And Tease

January 4, 2014
The App Store takes delivery of hundreds of new apps per day. The overwhelming scene makes it possible to easily overlook an exciting game, valuable productivity suite, etc. However, we have a solution. Today’s Best Apps tackles this problem by providing you with a handpicked and tested list of apps that are truly worth your consideration each and everyday. Remember: Even though in-app purchases typically require your iTunes Store password for processing, you can further prevent them and other unauthorized actions by enabling local restrictions using the passcode locked iOS parental controls


Video Cover - Create Title on Videos with Fonts and Background Musics for Instagram by Nitisa Jetmongkhonrat ($0.99, 17.9 MB): Present your socially shared moments as mini movies with this simple video editing and enhancement studio. Foremost, let's get a title in there, which could be logical, such as "Hiking in Hawaii," or something a little more immersive and captivating, perhaps "Superman or Superbad?" In fact, you can additionally flex that imagination through font and color selection as well as tilt, size, spacing, and alignment. Better yet, the text may elegantly fade in and out at any point for whatever length of time desired, allowing for things like brief intros before the fun begins. If you want to provide further pizzazz, there's the optional audio enrichment area where the original sound track may be lessened or eliminated entirely and one or more background music tracks applied. Once seemingly satisfied, preview the final project, then move onto the sharing section to auto-save the film to the iOS camera roll plus freely post it to Instagram, send it via email, transfer it through iTunes File Sharing, or move it to another app. Output quality is 640-by-640.

tease by Pro4Pro, LLC (Free, 4.8 MB): This Snapchat-type social companion app offers a simple and fun way to playfully tease friends and partners. Like the popular secretive instant messaging service, except far more casual, the idea here is to send a short video or image temporarily to a person in a ribbing fashion. For example, you could share the photo of a gift box or a short, up to 15-seconds, video showing your hand opening but ending right before they see what's inside. Basically, a fun little hint at something pleasurable to come, or so the person hopes. Anyway, once a video is seen or the image is viewed, there's 20-seconds to enjoy, it vanishes into digital nothingness. Usage of the app and service requires sign-up of a free username-based account.
