Storyboard - Create Cartoons from Your Videos

Storyboard is a new Android app produced by Google. The app will let you select a video that you have recorded on your phone and then have a cartoon storyboard of the video automatically created for you. I tried Storyboard yesterday and found it easy to use. That ease of use is partly due to the lack of customization options found in the app. All you can do in the app is select a video and then swipe through layouts until you find one that you like. You can't customize the layouts. Customizing the cartoon effects is also not an option.

Applications for Education
I think there is some use for the Storyboard app in school settings. The app could be useful for generating cover images for digital portfolios that include videos recorded by students.

The app might also be useful for extracting pictures from a video. Students could then caption those images to practice writing stories or writing directions for a process.
