Replay App: A Fun Way to Make Videos on your iPhone or iPad

During the Apple Keynote address in October, I saw a preview of a cool new video app for the iPhone. For church this week, I needed to make videos for our recent Nicaragua Mission Trip and for our Youth Camp, so I had my chance to try it out. If you use your phone for photos and videos, this is a great app to create a customized slideshow. You select the photos and videos you want to use, select a theme that controls the look of the video, and choose your music, and preview the video. It’s simple to use and the videos look great.  The photo transitions match the beat of the music, and your videos are automatically trimmed and added to the movie. You can even add titles and customize the order of the finished movie.

This works similar to services like Animoto, but I think it gives you even better results.  It is also very fast. I was able to create a finished video in minutes. I went ahead and purchased all the available themes for $9.99 (it uses an in-app purchase) but you can buy individual themes as well.  Check out the Apple Keynote, and then check out the videos I created for church this week.
