Animoto iPad app is optimized for iPad use and brings with it all of the great features that I love about Animoto. Just like on the web version of Animoto, on the iPad app you simply select pictures to use in your video then add a sound track to them. If you want to add a some text, you can do that too.
Animoto allows you to create 30 second videos for free. To create longer videos you should register for a free Animoto for Education classroom account.
Applications for Education
Animoto lies somewhere between a PowerPoint presentation and a full-fledged video is the audio slideshow. Creating audio slideshows can be a good way to add meaning to slides that otherwise might not mean much without a presenter.
