Review: Slideshow 365 creates nice slideshows, but the free version watermarks

Use any number of photos to create nifty photo slideshows on your Android smartphone or tablet.

Slideshow 365 creates neat slideshows with effects, transitions, and other goodies, but covers them with a watermark if you don't buy the full version. Luckily, the unlocked version doesn't cost much and is worth buying if you like to tell stories through photos.

When you first launch the app, it browses your entire phone for pictures and loads the ones it finds. You can then tap on the images you want to put into a slideshow. Chose as many as you want because there's no limit to the amount of photos you can use. You can add delays and transitions between your photos for better timing, but there are only four transitions to choose from. Since we didn't pay for the full version, Slideshow 365 not only threw a watermark on each of our photos used for testing, but also set a nasty little ad in the slideshow. What's more, the free version didn't let us save the slideshow outside of the app.

The free version of Slideshow 365 isn't very useful as it stands, but you can get a good sense of the paid version, which costs only a buck. It packs most of the features you want in a slideshow maker, and is relatively easy to use. A few more transitions or other ways to add flair to a slideshow would be nice, though.
