How to create Christmas slideshows on iPhone

By | December 20, 2011

It is easy and fast to create Christmas photo slideshows on a PC. But if you have an iPhone, it is even easier and faster to make Christmas slideshows. You just need to download the cool iOS app called Slideshow+ to your iPhone. Then everything is within a few taps on your iPhone.

The iPhone app Slideshow+ lets you turn photos and music into fantastic HD slideshows in a snap, complete with the options to apply transition, choose theme, insert blank slide, add text, set Pan & Zoom effects, etc. Click the “Play” button, and you are allowed to view your creation at any time. When all settings are done, you can choose to play the slideshow on HDTV (connect your iPhone and HDTV with Apple Digital AV adaptor and HDMI cable or Apple VGA Adapter) or output the slideshow to your camera roll as a video file. The newest version of Slideshow+ even allows you to directly upload the slideshow to YouTube and share the slideshow on Facebook.
