“People are downloading a screenshot or taking a video from somewhere then putting it into After Effects or Photoshop, putting it together, then uploading it to Instagram.” People are already doing this, so let’s make it easier for them to express themselves more visually through video and through creativity. So, they developed this spun app.
The app itself, live now for iOS, is really simple to use – even if you’re not used to working with video. To create your own mashup in SPUN, you first select video from your Camera Roll or SPUN’s community, or you can film using your camera. Once a video is selected, you can trim it, add other videos along with it, then decorate those videos with text, animation, and cutouts.
When your creation is finished, you can share the resulting 6-second max video back to the community as well as to a number of social channels, like Vine, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, SMS or your can save it to your Camera Roll.
SPUN is a free download on iOS, and plans to launch on Android next year.
