Recently, Facebook users will have noticed the introduction of the Timeline feature which, amongst other things, adds a huge graphical banner across the top of someone's profile page. It allows artistic types to add a banner that depicts themselves or a major interest of theirs.
Facebook Cover Designer is an app that makes it all the easier to implement. Offering a selection of filters and the ability to rotate, zoom in/out, shift or tilt, users can create an attractive Timeline cover and then publish it directly to their Facebook profile all from this one app.
It's all extremely easy to get to grips with and great results are achieved in hardly any time at all.
Facebook Cover Designer is available for free and there's the option to unlock pro mode for $0.99 which provides more filters.
For a while I had this idea about taking a photo of myself every day for a year or two, then compiling the images into a kind of stop-motion video that showed me aging in pseudo real-time. Then I thought it might make a decent art project (or something) to do something similar, only with a baby as it grows into whatever it is babies grow into these days. It appears as though I wasn't the only person who's thought of this, which isn't exactly a surprise given the billions of people on the planet, as MJH Apps has seen fit to create a universal app that does exactly what I'd been daydreaming about.
And really, that's what Watch Me Change does. It enables users to create time-lapsed video using pictures taken from their iOS device and stringing them together. They can set how many frames-per-second, set background music and use a grid that pops up on-screen to help with more consistent framing. Stuff like this can be a little eerie to watch, but it's also pretty fascinating. Those brave enough to put themselves under the microscope can currently find Watch Me Change in the App Store for $0.99.
