Pete's App of the Month

Welcome to my first App of the Month review!

Puppet Pals is an app for making fast and simple videos or animations.

It's a great tool when you want convey a simple process or act out a scene of some kind. There are many built-in actors and backgrounds but it's so easy to add your own that I don't think the available ones are of much use.

It has a handicraft charm similar to Little Big Planet which aids in creating a casual feel to the videos you make. You can record continuously with each movement recorded or record frame by frame for an animated feel.

You are limited to 8 actors and 5 backgrounds for each video but if you make multiple scenes you can use iMovie to combine them into one seamless movie.

You can record a single audio file as you create your scene, using the device microphone but I recommend using iMovie for audio as it offers much more flexibility.

Overall, this app feels very well made and allows great diversity while keeping the interface simple. However, with a few tweaks, it could become a contender for the best video creation app.

Here is video I made using Puppet Pals HD on the iPad and then used iMovie to combine scenes and apply the audio.
