Trekking down this fun blogging adventure, us bloggers are sometimes asked to review products such as books, toys, educational programs, apps, and sometimes super random items too (I’ll leave those to your imagination). Depending on your particular audience, it’s up to you to make the executive decision if you think your readers would enjoy learning about a new product.
I was asked by a friend of mine to take a look at an app called OneDay Instant Movie Maker.
At first I heard the word ‘movie maker’ and immediately my little ‘Barb’ (AKA Haydan) and her love of all things camera and movie making popped into my head. The kid LOVES taking videos of herself on my iPhone (many of which I later find when my phone is out of memory and I’m left with multiple 30 minute monologues from Haydan explaining her thoughts on bedtime, Oreos, and why our family should buy another animal; particularly, a kitten).
I downloaded the app while Barb/Haydan was at school and took a quick look over the options before Barb came home from school. There are many different categories to choose from and the video options are limitless, for all ages too!
First, you ‘Choose Your Story’ from a list of categories
Second, each category has a bunch of different topics to choose from
(An example from the ‘Featured’ category)
From there it asks you questions and gives you control over when to press record. Honestly, the process was so incredibly simple. We messed up on one of the answers and it gave us the option to re-create that particular answer/recording. I swear to you, this is one of the neatest apps I’ve used. Check out the video Barb and I made and see for yourself.
I’ve watched this video approximately 20 times and it makes me weepy every time. The music that goes along to the questions, listening to my sweet girl and her answers, it just warms my heart and I know for sure this is something that I will look back on many years from now and smile. I plan to make a slew of these to play at Barb’s wedding one day! 😉
So, now it’s your turn! Click on which option you have (iPhone/IOS or Android) and you’ll be set!
The app is free to download right now so get on it! 🙂
I’d love to see your videos! Post them on Facebook and tag @SmashleyAshley in the comments so I can see them!
Lots of love, Smashers.
