PixnTell – An App for Creating Simple Picture Stories

pixntell Pixntell is an iPad app for quickly creating simple narrated photostories. To create a story using Pixntell all that you need to do is start a new project, select some images, place them in order, and then start talking about each of your pictures. You control the timing for each image. If you want to talk about your first picture for twenty seconds, your second picture for just three seconds, and your third picture for fifteen seconds, you can do that. Pixntell allows you to crop your pictures, add text them, add filters to them, place fun stickers on your pictures, and draw on your images highlight a portion of them. When your project is complete you can upload it directly to YouTube, save it in your Dropbox account, share it on Facebook, or send to friends via email.

The free version of Pixntell allows you include five images in your projects. The paid version ($0.99 USD) allow you use an unlimited amount of images in your projects. Pixntell could be a great app for students to use to create book trailer videos. Pixntell could be used by students to create short book reviews or book trailers. Have your students create drawings about their favorite books. Then they can use their iPads to take pictures of those drawings, upload them to Pixntell, and finally create a short video in which they talk about the best parts of the book.

    How does this compare to the VoiceThread app?

      There is really no comparison between the two. VoiceThread offers much, much more in terms of commenting options, the option to zoom-in on objects, and sharing. VoiceThread offers more options and more fine control over all aspects of the process. Pixntell is more like Animoto with a little greater control over timing.
