Finally you can upload your videos to index and share them with your viewers. index may not have the reach or the search prominence of YouTube, but with the power and features available in its recording and editing functions, and the careful integration of these features into the mobile platform, it is a very good video service. If you are looking for a replacement for YouTube or you have a index account and want to take your video creation on the go with you, download the index app today. The premise of index is very basic. Take a handful of photos, add them to the timeline, and create a video with a soundtrack in the background of your photos. It takes only a few minutes to create these short videos and they can be instantly shared to your Facebook or Twitter accounts. With so many photo and video sharing apps on the App Store already, how does index stack up? When you first open index, you are given a short tutorial. With only four screens, the tutorial manages to show you every feature you'll need. Because the app boils everything down into an elementary, streamlined process that can be performed with only a few quick taps, it is immediately accessible. It has more robust features, however, including importing photos from your photo library or Facebook account and you can choose which photos end up in your video, as well as the soundtrack playing in the background and the captions displayed. There is also a list of popular index in recent days and if your friends are connected on Facebook, you can view theirs directly from the app. index is a unique video creation tool that takes very little time to pick up and use and that integrates perfectly with a number of different social networking services. This makes it a potentially popular service. Small videos, easy to share, and quick to edit and upload, index work as advertised. While additional features for editing and customizing the flow and look of those videos would be welcome in future editions, this is a good early effort. When it comes to editing photos, the iPhone is severely lacking. The built-in tools for the device provide no means to edit the photos you've taken--only save or share. Fortunately, there are dozens of apps that allow you to do this, providing an additional layer of customization for all of your photos. SPPhotoFix is one of those tools, allowing you to quickly load a photo and edit it in on your iPhone, but does it provide enough tools to warrant a download? When you open SPPhotoFix, you have few options. Open a photo, edit that photo, or save and share that photo. When you open a photo and tap the edit button, you can choose from a handful of options including rotation, cropping, filtering, HSL, B&C, and white light filters. The edits are actually extensive, though limited to the quality of the photo you have. When done editing, the app will show you the original and new photo side by side so you can choose to be done or go back and edit more. This is all done quite well and the interface is basic and uncluttered, perfect for photo editing. While features are limited and the quality of exports is not always as high as the originals, for basic editing functions it works quite well. If you want a basic photo editing tool that is free, provides the necessary filters for cropping or changing colors in a photo, and makes sharing easy, then consider checking out SPPhotoFix. It's not the best photo editing tool on the App Store, but it's quick and easy to use and works well for most basic functions. The sheer volume of options and tools in Soundindex is impressive, if nothing else because it really does its best to immerse you in your music as people tend to listen to it now--live and socially. The tool, itself, is designed to recognize tracks playing in the background and help you find the artist or album in its database; but it goes beyond that, providing music headlines, a list of the recent charts, popular music from its users, and a Twitter stream of top songs. If you love music, you will love Soundindex. The app is designed to be as easy to use as possible, while cramming as much information onto the screen as can fit. With a rolling ticker of recently discovered songs, chart toppers, songs that are being ID'ed a lot, and Twitter statistics, you have multiple ways to interact with and find new music. At the same time, the core functionality to ID and find music you want to buy is intact and there are links to the iTunes store if you want to buy songs, along with StubHub integration to find concert tickets and Pandora to create a new station or recent music videos. Soundindex is a sleek, a
