Interesting, nice interface, modern design
Buffering issues, slow renders, is lagging
Flipgram for Android is a cross between a meme and a Vine video. The sharing options are good, and it’s another fun way to connect with friends and discover new inspiration.
Flipgram helps you create short video presentations with your favorite pictures, set to your favorite music. The process is simple with some decent controls. Just add photos direct from your galley and arrange them in whatever order you like. There are also creative tweaks to make your presentations display exactly as you want them. Add text captions, pick music direct from your own library, or just use some of the stock melodies included with the app.
The interface is well laid out. Creating new Flipgrams feels a little like adding entries to your calendar; just set the timing, speed and all the tweaks, then render everything into a compact video sequence that can be shared in a multitude of ways. Or just share your artistic expressions with the rest of the world via the Flipgram website.
You can browse other user’s creations to get ideas for your own. Some of them are quite cute. I liked the one of the guy who paid homage to his cute doggy. Very sweet. Browsing user Flipgrams was slow and laggy though, making it more tedious than enjoyable.
Flipgram is good fun and I enjoy the creative aspect of it. Kids would love this too, and have loads of fun creating sequences with family and friends. I think this is an interesting hobby, and just good clean fun virtually anyone can enjoy.
