I have software to do this at home on my computer (ProfCast), but since nothing beats the convenience of the iPhone for doing Anything Anytime Anywhere, I thought I’d suggest it here, or ask if anyone has seen an App like this out in the wild:
I want an App that will allow me to make a video slideshow that I can narrate. Let me go to a folder of my pictures, pick the ten I want to show. Let me then “begin recording.” The first image shows up. The mic turns on and I can talk over the pic. When I want the next image, I tap a large button on the screen. I keep talking. When all is done, I click the stop button, the iPhone creates a video of the pictures with my narration over top of them, and then I can upload the whole shebang straight to YouTube, the way I do with my 3GS videos. Alternatively, let me download an uncompressed QuickTime video to my computer next time I synch up.
Is that too much to ask? Does it already exist? Even if it creates a video that I have to sync up with my computer to upload to YouTube, I’d be happy. (I’d be doubly happy if that would help preserve video quality, too.)
I’ve seen slideshow-generating apps, but most expect you to have a song to play already, and then, at best, give you control of how long each pic should be on screen. I could use that, but it seems like a kludge and an awful lot of work. I need simplicity here.
