ALIVE App Review
The ALIVE app harnesses the power of the cloud to make it all run smoothly and seamlessly. Users simply download the free app and register as a user. This can be done either through Facebook or via an email address. Facebook connectivity, of course, means instant sharing with anyone you know in that world, making your wall that much more interesting. ALIVE app offers four basic categories of editing features.
With a few simple taps, videos are transformed to a new look and feel. Filters help videos take on a new shape by allowing users to add lens flares, light overlays and light leaks, bringing focus to subjects at hand and painting a more professional look.
Videos get a makeover when you add animation objects to them. Peruse the expansive library of items, each with their own unique elements, drag over what you like and save them. You can even set a time duration for how long it plays in the video and even add motion tracking so it syncs to elements in your original video. I found this to be extremely useful, so that it would run for just a specified amount of time. How’s that for customization?
Sometimes pictures need an explanation, and adding your own personal touch can make the video your own. It can help explain why a video is so special and allows you to add specifics like dates, times and location, so everyone can share in what you’ve just captured. This editing tool allows you to add your own words, use a predefined set of commonly used phrases, or a combination of both!
If you like adding sounds to your background, ALIVE has that as well. There is nothing like taking an action-packed video and adding some revved up music to the background to create a realistic effect. ALIVE offers a multitude of choices to play in place of the video sounds.
The overall usability of ALIVE app is easy and straightforward and there is not much lacking in it. I look forward to seeing an expansion to the sound effects and objects that can be added to my videos. Until then, I will take full advantage of this app, which lets me take 30 second snippets of something funny, make it even funnier and then share it with the world. What better way to put a smile on someone’s face!
