Review: FotoFlo captures multiple images into one streamlined video slideshow

Create slideshows and active photo books on your iPhone with this photo editing app.

FotoFlo is not a typical photo editing app. It is designed to capture images from your library, streamlining them into a single flowing video or slideshow you can play back or share with others. While the interface controls are at times unresponsive or poorly placed, the overall effect of the app is a good one -- allowing you to create fun, interactive content out of images on your phone.

As soon as you load FotoFlo, you can start developing your first videos and slideshows by selecting images from your photo library. Each image you select can be loaded into the system and moved to fit within the collage. Recording allows you to slide between these images at whatever speed you want and playback is equally controlled. Without a clear tutorial and with no overarching design options, it's hard to know exactly what you should do during the recording process; but after a couple of passes we quickly picked up all of the necessary features and were tweaking our new recordings.

FotoFlo is not a mind-blowing app. It doesn't offer the kind of robust video creation and editing tools that we've seen on other new apps, recently, but it works well for what it offers: a slideshow creation tool that works. If you are interested in combining your images into slideshows or would like to create videos incorporating a number of your favorite existing videos, then consider this app.
