Tubey is one of those apps that is laser-sharp focused on doing one thing very well, which, in this case, is allowing you to create slideshows using images taken from your iPhone. You can also add narration, background music and titles synchronized to each slide. Then, you can upload it to servers maintained by Tubey’s developers, CirclePix. There, they'll to be turned into compressed videos and posted on YouTube, and soon, to Facebook (according to CirclePix, any way).
CirclePix keeps referring to what they do are “videos,” but they’re really animated slideshows where images are panned, zoomed or both. Don’t think of the results as true video.
Tubey has four build-video options that you can do in any order: One, chose images by taking them or selecting them from your photo library. Two, add audio. Three add info. Four, approve and send.
First things first: Launch Tubey and then register. After that, you have the option of creating one of five slideshows: Personal Sell, Events, Real Estate and Other. The difference is the content in the intro for each category.
In this example, let’s say you want to create a Personal slideshow. Take photos or select images from your album. While in preview mode, you can add narration and background music from a long list of audio clips, which you'll select using a scrolling wheel menu. Then, add info such as a title for YouTube, meta tags to improve your search results and other stuff you want on the info screen. When you’re done, upload.
You could use Tubey in a whole bunch of ways such as selling your junk on eBay or Craigslist; spicing up your blog; or promoting your small business. Heck, just mess around with it and impress your Mom.
CirclePix’s Tubey is an ingenious concept and it’s easy to use. You can’t ask for more than that.
I would be remiss if I didn’t include a YouTube video of Tubey, wouldn’t I?
