Flixlab is a free app for iPhone that lets you quickly make movies and share them with your Facebook friends without a lot of hassle. A recent feature update includes a cooperative movie-making mode: you'll now be able to take pictures and videos of an event with your friend and then quickly share and combine the content from both of your iPhones into one video.
Flixlab takes all the busywork out of making good-looking movies by adding all the effects, transitions, and music automatically before you share them with your Facebook friends. Simply follow the app's step-by-step process to choose images and videos from your iPhone's photo library. Then, pick from several premade themes to fit the content, add text slides, and choose the type of transitions you want to use between slides or videos. From there, you'll be able to pick a song from your music library to tie the project together. When you're finished, you can upload the video directly to Facebook, and Flixlab will let you tag your friends (just like you would on Facebook photos) so it will show up on their profile walls immediately.
Though there are a lot of video-making apps in the iTunes App Store, there are not many that offer the shared video-making features found in Flixlab. Depending on how users receive these latest new features and how the developers move forward with the app in the future, it could become very popular for creating and uploading video to Facebook.
