2 New Instagram Goodies To Put On Your Radar #IGTravelThursday

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday with family and friends!

Today, I wanted to share some information on an app that I recently discovered. As 2013 came to a close, my Instagram feed was filled with “the best of 2013″ thanks to Statigr.am. If you visited the site, and scrolled over to “Snapshot” you are able to see your best moments on Instagram from 2013. This neat little video combines the most popular moments from 2013 (the ones with the most comments). I thought it was cute and a nice way to end the new year.

The day after I posted my own Statigr.am Snapshot, I started noticing many Flipagram videos appearing, which dare I say it – were even nicer. This app is oh so clever and allows you to choose from a few (or all) of your Instagram shots and combines them into a 15 second clip. You also have the option to create a 30 second clip, but that is not shareable on Instagram do to the length.

After you’ve chosen your photos, you can mix them up, double up a few or zoom in/crop. If edits aren’t necessary, just jump to the music option. Here you can add music if you like, choosing from a wide selection of free 30 second clips. The beauty of these clips is that if you’re creating a 15 second video, you can slice the music accordingly.

I will say that after creating my video, the app crashed. I emailed tech support and they fixed the issue within 15 minutes. Impressive.

Here’s my finished product. Music: Incredible by Celine Dion & Ne-Yo (one of my new favourites).

Inspired to make your own? You can download the app for free by visiting Flipagram or iTunes.

    Thanks for the tip! I have only come across the Statigr.am videos but loved the other one even better!

    That’s great, Nadia. Happy New Year. I so want to do flipagram, but my droid is not compatible. I need to get a new phone.
