Review: ThingLink helps you combine photo, text, and video in one place

Create fun, interactive images with this innovative tool.

ThingLink allows you to take an image and add video clips and text to enhance it and then facilitates the sharing of your creation with friends. There is really no end to the types of interesting multimedia projects you can create with this app, and the highly intuitive interface makes the whole experience even better. This is a quick and innovative way to share all aspects of a moment or experience with friends and family.

The first time you open ThingLink, a short tutorial pops up to walk you through the features of the app. There are also a few sample images you can play with to help you understand what you can create before you start on your own projects. When you're ready to begin, select an image, and then decide what other items you'd like to link to it. You can include a video clip, text, or other photos. Whatever you choose to link will show up on the initial image as little icons, and when you tap them in the finished project, you can view what's been linked there. You can take a video through the app, choose one from your library, or find one on YouTube.

Sharing your finished projects is also supported in the app via Facebook, Twitter, e-mail, and messaging. ThingLink is free, and all of its features work well and run smoothly. If you like working with multimedia, then this is a fun app to try out and experiment with.
