Inspired by apps such as Motion Skills, Google is rolling out a new “appsperiments” program to bring users functional apps created using experimental technology. To introduce the series, the California-based company has introduced three new photography apps.
First up, Google has unveiled an Android-exclusive app known as Storyboard. With Storyboard, users can turn their videos into “single-page comics,” employing the design approach of comic books to breathe new life into the typical smartphone clip. With six “visual styles” at its disposal, Storyboard takes over the decision-making process and selects the frames and layout for you, piecing together the visual narrative for the consumer.
For iOS only, Google has created Scrubbies. Focused on producing unique video loops, Scrubbies allows users to completely rework their visuals by changing its speed and direction. You can use the app like a DJ scratches a record, utilizing one or two fingers to guide the editing process.
Lastly, both iOS and Android phones will be able to access Google’s new Selfissimo! “appsperiment.” For Selfissimo!, the concept is simple: accessing the app’s automated features, users allow their phones to take a black and white shot every single time they strike a pose while Selfissimo! is activated.
You can preview some of Google’s new appsperiments above, and check them out on your own phone now. Earlier this month, Google made some changes to its search engine and donated to Chance the Rapper’s charity.
