Klieg is a photography video app for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad that takes photos and makes a video from them. Klieg takes photo seaming and makes it seamless for the user. It’s also easy in adding photo filter effects to spruce things up a bit. And, uploading the finished video to Facebook or Twitter, saving the video to my photo gallery and e-mailing the finished product. You select your photos, swipe this way, swipe that way and you have a video.
Klieg App Review
The technology to take an action like swinging a baseball bat and hitting a ball, photograph it in motion using burst mode, editing it to black and white and e-mailing it to friends and family or uploading it to Facebook and Twitter was so easy from start-to-finish and makes this app handy on the go or at home.
The amount of photography filters for the not-so-professional, more novice photographer makes it easy to add filter effects to the whole video series with one swipe. And, for an added $1.99 you can get even more expanded options for photography filters. The basic filters were enough for me to get an idea of performance and I have access to Photoshop editing, so I would never pay the additional $1.99. But, I can see how a lot of people would love the added optional filters for a tiny fee compared to the cost of a lot of other, more complex apps and photo editing software.
For the novice taking vacation pics on their iPhone, the Klieg app would work well to make a video to share, with slight adjustment to FPS (frames per second). The filters add a great option to showcase your favorite pics with added emphasis in a single swipe. Even my non-reader, 4-year-old pre-schooler could navigate his way through this app with some practice.
No frowns; no sound. I would smile if I could add my favorite song from iTunes to my favorite photos or add a voice-over for navigation and instructional video or for presentations. I think sound would put this app over the top for educational social media and open it up to users in the business world.
Navigation is a little tricky. Swipe this way, swipe that way, I can’t get the hang of which way to swipe to do what. There’s a navigation instructional that comes up with a simple touch and hold, but I would rather have a small, basic menu for application navigation. I watched a how-to review of the app on Blip, which helped a lot with navigation and instruction.
I never could get the FPS adjusted on iPad. The Blip instruction video showed it working on iPod Touch and iPhone, but FPS never came up on my navigation menu even on my iPad. A little glitch for the developer to work out for iPad.
The fact that the developer came up with an easy-to-use interface with simplistic, user-friendly actions makes it very marketable. Spruce it up a bit, add more social media upload options and sound options and it will be a top product in the photo and video apps category.
