Shadow Puppet - a 30hands alternative

Tutorial & download links

The most recent update of 30Hands significantly changed the free version of their app. (You can now only make five slideshows on each iPad and only export 3 times.)  Now what!? You might want to try Shadow Puppet. The app is fairly easy to use and it allows students to create and export narrated slideshows much like 30 hands.

Some features:
  • Cites photos sources used from the internet.
  • Text can be added to each image.
  • Music tracks can be added.
  • There is an option to "redo" a recording on a page. (but you must decide before moving to the next slide.)
  • You must save to preview.
