Photo Slideshow Director is packed with features and doesn’t overlook a single detail when it comes to creating an awesome photo slideshow. This was my first experience with a slideshow app, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. I was extremely surprised (and pleased) to discover that the app goes miles beyond your typical slideshow creator.
Photo Slideshow Director is a creative powerhouse which is also easy to navigate. I didn’t have a single problem figuring out where to find customizations or what to do next, mainly because the menu at the bottom of the screen is designed to help you “flow” through creating a slideshow.
Photo Slideshow Director seems to automatically save your slideshow project every time you make a change, which is wonderful in case the app crashes. Also, the app comes with a built-in photo editor, saving you from having to use multiple photo apps. I found the editor to be exceptional, allowing you to add creative filters, text, and even stickers to your photos.
The only negative thing I encountered with the Photo Slideshow Director iPhone app was a tendency to freeze if I was switching between apps or trying to open an existing project.
Are you a social network junkie? If you just uploaded 200 photos of your first day at college to Facebook, you can automatically import the entire album into Photo Slideshow Director. This makes it ridiculously easy to quickly create a great slideshow which would easily take hours to do if you were to import photos one by one. You can also import photos from Picasa and Flickr.
Photo Slideshow Director offers five ways to export your latest creative creation: HDTV output, Photo Library, upload to YouTube and/or Facebook, and wifi transfer.
If you’re someone who is snap happy with your iPhone’s camera, you’ll fall in love with Photo Slideshow Director. The app is packed with features and is dead simple to use. It won’t eliminate the need for a professional software program if you’re serious about slideshows, but it’s perfect for someone who’s looking to add a little pizzazz to their photos.
Photo Slideshow Director is compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation) and iPad. Requires iOS 4.1 or later.
