Ratings and Reviews
This app is better than I thought it would be. I bought this app out of curiosity and wasn’t expecting much, but actually it has turned out a few good melodies to certain images... and I like that you can have a melody played for you to fall asleep to, that’s a nice touch... maybe adding a feature that you can save melodies without exporting them would be nice. All in all I really like the app.
Initially intrigued at the prospect of having my photographs synched into some musical form, so I downloaded this to discover how things would turn out, as I am a keen amateur photographer. I was quite excited at the outcomes it would provide so loaded up a snap to give it a whirl. It sort of jangles along and as far as I could discern it seemed to play just random notes with no obvious tune or structure to them. Perhaps I am being over critical, but not to my taste.
Well it’s a start... 😬
Midi file will not export to Facebook.
Exporting a video file to Facebook results in a thumbnail of your photo alongside an animation of the notes. So it doesn’t really showcase your photos to their best.
Only 3 animations of the score, and 6 music style options.
Needs some work.
Waste of 99p. First and last time I look at iTunes recommendations 😆
