VideoStory app review: create beautiful and engaging slideshows for Instagram with your memories and favorite music



What we have here is a wonderfully innovative development which enables you to create customizable photo slideshows, featuring all kinds of extra goodies such as video transitions, music, text, and much more. Best of all, this app has been tailored to work seamlessly with Instagram Video.

10 free apps worth checking out

I’ve been getting a lot of laughs out of putting together funny pictures with completely inappropriate background music. I’m sure many of you will use this app for more serious purposes, but either way, I absolutely love it so far.

You guys really need to check out this app because it makes creating photo slideshows easier than any other tool I’ve come across for iPhone or iPad.

Tell Your Story

When you first start up VideoStory, you’ll see the Select section which will be totally blank. At the bottom of the screen are two buttons enabling you to import images either from Instagram or from your Camera Roll.

The best iPhone apps for Instagram

This app works seamlessly with Instagram Videos, and you can log right in to your Instagram account from directly within the interface. I’ve got more than enough photos on my iPhone, so this is the option I ended up going with.

Once you’ve selected the images you want to use, you can edit each one individually by adjusting its position or zooming in and out to get the proportions exactly how you want them. Once this is done, it’s tap to move on to the Setup phase by tapping the arrow in the top-right corner.


Enjoy Your 15 Seconds of Instagram Fame!

The Setup screen features a pretty cool array of features with which you can customize your Video Story to a large extent. There are options here for adjusting the time delay between each image, adding a background song, and adding a text title to your slideshow.

Best iphone and ipad apps

If you upgrade to the paid version of this app, you can also choose from various Video Transitions and even adjust aspects of the background music. The next screen you’ll see is the Create section. From here, you can watch a preview of your slideshow before saving it to your Camera Roll or opening it in Instagram.

And that’s about it! This three-step process is incredibly simple and self-explanatory, and the end results actually look pretty good. The images lose some quality but I think this is important for keeping the file size down as much as possible.
