Review: Dynamic Photo Free creates animated screensavers for your iPad

Create and customize screensavers and moving images on your iPad screen with this fun app.

Dynamic Photo Free creates custom screensavers from your photo library using one of a handful of special effects built into the app. The effects aren't particularly mind-blowing, but when combined with transition options and a large photo library it can be a fun screensaver alternative for your iPad.

After installation of Dynamic Photo Free, you can see the effects in action with a handful of stock photos that come with the app. Click on the settings tab and you can then replace those with your own images. They integrate directly into your system and start playing immediately, so the process is relatively easy to get started, and the effects can be selected alongside your images. There are also settings with which to choose how fast the slides change and the effects rotate. This all works fairly quickly and you can change other settings for how things display, though keep in mind that there will always be an ad at the top of the screen in the free version of the app.

If you listen to music or podcasts on your iPad or enjoy having something on screen while eating dinner or when guests are over, consider downloading Dynamic Photo Free. It makes a great screensaver or centerpiece and mantle decoration, with a dynamic, always-on display.
