Shadow Puppet iOS App Review: Narrate Over Photos

Shadow Puppet is a super easy-to-use app that lets you take photos, narrate over the top of them, and generate a video to share. Sounds simple enough, right? It is, but the results are fantastic. Photos invite people to talk about them — like a teleprompter for real people — and if you want to share a weekend trip, you can add nuance to the experience. Have a funny anecdote that gives the background details behind the guy who was chased into a lake by a moose? You can talk about it and share the story.

For kids, it’s even better. If grandma is on the other side of the world and can’t make a birthday party, don’t send her a bunch of boring video with lulls in the action, let your kid tell her what happened through a series of photos instead with Shadow Puppet. You’ll capture a whole new perspective.

This app is definitely worth checking out. Read my full review at MacNewsWorld.

I've been writing about the tech industry since the birth of the email newsletter, and I still remember the clacking Mac keyboards from high school -- Apple's seed-planting strategy at work. I'm a big fan of elegant gear and sublime tech, but there's something to be said for turning it all off -- or most of it -- to go outside. Online I like to call out cool stuff on Wicked Cool Bite, share Apple-focused opinions on TechNewsWorld, and blog with my buddies at Man Makes Fire.
