 I am a big fan of taking videos and especially of motion capture video. I am a big admirer of films such as Wallace and Gromit that use motion capture video, so when I got the chance to review iStopMotion I was looking forward to seeing what I would be able to do with it.

Review – FotoMagico 3.5

On July 27, 2010, in Apple, Photography, Review, by Elisa Pacelli

FotoMagico 3.5
Boinx Software

Price: $149US for Pro version (used for this review), $29US for Home version
http://boinx.com/fotomagico/overview/

When I travel, I like to take pictures. Lots of pictures. In fact, my kids make fun of me because I’m always having them pose in front of some landmark, or on the beach, or, well, wherever I feel like taking another picture. I’m sure many of you reading this do the same thing.

But what do to with the pictures once they’re on your computer? There are only so many you can print. And how often do we go back to look at them?

Here’s a really great way to share those pictures, and at the same time, have a back-up of your precious memories: make a slideshow with FotoMagico.

Review – You Gotta See This!

On July 24, 2010, in Apps, Camera, iPhone, Review, by Owen Rubin

Review: You Gotta See This
Company: Boinx Software
Price: $1.99

You Gotta See This. That is not only the name of the product, but what I said to others when I saw this. If you have an iPhone 4 (it does not run on anything but the iPhone 4), for only $1.99 you can get one of the coolest photo products I have seen in a long time, especially on a cell phone.

I just completed a professional quality dynamic slide show using FotoMagico 2.2 from Boinx Software. The client is thrilled. She raved about the visual dissolves, transitions, fades, zooms, and twirls. She adored the customized integration of audio with images. She demanded and expected the best, and the result exceeded her goals.

FotoMagico software went gone through four incremental version upgrades since we first discussed it over two years ago. While I was using version 2.2, a newer free 2.5 upgrade was released. Developer Peter Baumgartner is working day and night on version 3, which will allow users to pull in movies for the first time.

Every numbered FotoMagico iteration works essentially the same way. Upgrades take the application from good to very good to outstanding to excellent to amazing, but the core functionality remains: individualized slide show creation and presentation.

There are few problems or bugs in this software. When you come across a glitch, you email Boinx tech support, and your issue is addressed quickly and honestly. Usually you are given a hidden-in-plain-sight tip to get you out of your impasse, and sometimes you are told the error is a known issue that is being addressed for the next release. Suggestions are welcomed, and they are handed to Peter for consideration.
