These three apps are a part of Google’s photography appsperiments inspired by the Motion Stills app named as – Storyboard, Selfissimo and Scrubbies.
Google has officially declared it on its blog which read as: “Today, we’re launching the first installment of a series of photography appsperiments: usable and useful mobile photography experiences built on experimental technology. Our “appsperimental” approach was inspired in part by Motion Stills, an app developed by researchers at Google that converts short videos into cinemagraphs and time lapses using experimental stabilization and rendering technologies.”
So what are these new apps introduced by Google, let’s have a look.
This app is currently available only on Android device and it enables the users of the app to transform a video into single-page comic layouts.
