Creative self-expression platform Slidely has announced the launch of Slidely Show, an iMovie-style video creation app that lets users turn their favorite photos, music and video clips into new projects. The app was originally launched as Slidely Highlights, but has been relaunched as Slidely Show with a focus on creating new projects using media from multiple sources.
When creating a new video project, users can tap to capture footage from existing video clips, or import photos and other content from their device’s camera roll. The app’s latest update includes support for importing content from Facebook, Dropbox and Instagram.
Slidely Show offers support for multiple clips in each video, and toggles for customized slow motion or fast-motion effects. Finally, users can add their own music to each video for a personalized final touch. Once a project is complete, these videos can be exported to Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, WhatsApp or YouTube, as well as SMS or email. Users can also view others’ creations on the app’s Movie Feed.
Slidely recently closed $7.3 million in funding, which helped bring Slidely Show to life. The company has surpassed 50 million users, with over three billion photos shared to its platform. That platform includes standalone Slidely Capture and Slidely Video apps. Slidely Capture allows users to capture still images from moving videos.
Slidely Show joins a host of other video creation services on iOS, including VideoStory, with its specific focus on Instagram Video, and Qwiki, which automatically gathers the best media from a user’s camera roll to create overall “moments.”
