Have you ever wished that your phone would do more with the photos and videos you take? Google has announced the first installment of "appsperiments:" Storyboard (Android only), Selfissimo! (iOS and Android), and Scrubbies (iOS only). These experimental apps are based on the idea behind Motion Stills, an attempt to take technology in development at Google and turn it into useable apps.
Storyboard takes your video and automatically picks interesting frames to place into a single page comic-book style layout with one of six visual styles. The user can then either save the comic or pull down to refresh for over 1.6 trillion different possible combinations.
Selfissimo! is an automated black and white selfie app that takes a photo automatically each time you strike a new pose. They should require you to put an attempt count along with the photo when posting it on social media.
Scrubbies is a DJ style video editing app that allows you to manipulate the playback direction and speed of your clip, creating loops and highlighting the best parts of your videos.
Google is hoping for user feedback as they develop these apps and will likely be releasing more mini-apps soon.
