Flixlab Review & $25 iTunes Gift Card Giveaway

I take a lot of pictures with my iPhone it is just so convenient and the camera quality on my iPhone 4 is quite good so I am generally pleased with the pictures I take.  I love to create movies out of the pictures I take to share with my friends and family and find it is a good alternative to just sending on picture at a time.  Unfortunately before on my iPhone I had to send the pictures to my computer and then make them into my video, collage or whatever it is I wanted to do with them.  Now I can make this right on my iPhone and share with my friends via text, email or even posting to facebook.  Best of all you can download Flixlab free in the iTunes app store.

In 7 simple steps with Flixlab you can have the best video to share with your friends and family.  Let me show you what they are and just how easy they are.

  1. First step you connect your Flixlab account to your facebook (or not it is up to you).  Then you choose to either make a movie or shoot a video.  If you are shooting a video your camera will open so that you can do so.  If you are making a movie then you follow these easy steps.
  2. Select your content for your video.  You can add pictures from your iPhone, events (this allows you to and your friends to share pictures, just start shooting video and Flixlab creates an event for you automatically.  Go through your pictures and simply tap on each one you want to select it for your video.
  3. Tag people in your clips, you can tag your facebook friends in the movie simply by scrolling through your clips and then choosing a friend from your facebook friends list to tag in that clip.
  4. Next step you choose your theme, this one allows you to choose from simple fade effects, holiday styles, occasions and style, lots of fun options to choose from, for mine since my video is my cats newborn kittens i went with the newborn theme listed under occasions.
  5. Choose your music, here you can choose whether you want to use music from your iPhone, music you have uploaded or music in the Flixlab library.  The library has music for a lot of the different themes you just choose from.  I picked one out of the new baby category.
  6. Make changes to your video by naming your movie, selecting to reorder and text your slides, tag your friends, choose your theme for the fade effects, add music, change the length and tell it whether or not you will allow it to remix.  You can then preview your movie before moving on to actually sharing it.
  7. Last but not least you can share your video.  You have one last chance to tag your facebook friends, set your privacy options for on facebook and then publish to facebook.

The one and only thing that I don;t like about this is if i publish to facebook I cannot go back and save my video to my camera roll so that I can share it with my friends via text etc. unless I watch my video through again.  Creating my video took me about 5 minutes tops and I think it turned out super cute.  If you are looking for a fun way to share your videos then Flixlab is the way to go.  Be sure to check out Flixlab on Facebook.

Here is the video that I created using Flixlab:
