Like Vhoto, StillShot from Macadamia Apps enables you to snatch a still picture from a video clip. While Vhoto automates the process for you, StillShot allows you scroll with the video clip frame-by-frame and pick the most effective go.


StillShot is very simple to make use of. Just open up the app, pick your video clip from your video library (StillShot filterings system out your pictures, revealing just your video clips) and scroll through the frameworks.

When you locate a photo you like, strike the “Share” button, and it will be conserved in complete resolution to your camera roll. You additionally have the option to post the picture to Facebook, share it on Twitter or publish it.

The UI of StillShot is uncomplicated and reasonable. The almost all of the monitor shows each still image in the video clip and labels it according to its location in the video.

The placement tag consists of both a timestamp and structure number. The application additionally reveals a video timeline basically with a marker that enables you to view where you in the overall video clip. This is very valuable if you know you wish a still from the middle of a very long clip.


StillShot opened up both long (3:00 min clips) and brief clips without any type of issues or downturns in performance. It was very easy to export structures and enjoyable to be able to pick them, as long as you have some persistence. I’ll admit that scrolling via hundreds of structures showing really comparable site can be cumbersome.

A number of times I simply intended to quit and run the video clip via Vhoto and have it select my best chances. Then I kept in mind the compromise– Vhoto is quickly, yet it is not always precise, selecting a photo of an individual primarily of a jump instead of mid-air. StillShot might be slower to process given that you are doing it manually, but this hand-picking ensures you acquire that best mid-air go.


There was one quirk with StillShot I came across that costs a mention. Sometimes the framework numbering of the video clip was askew. For example, the label for framework number 1 in the 00:06 s of the video clip appeared after structure number 29 in the same 00:06 s. It was an identifying error as the frames showed up in the correct series of the video clip. I found the mislabeling strange, yet not a major trouble.

This glitch might be bothersome, however, for an individual monitoring many specific frameworks in a long video clip.

StillShot is readily available for US$ 0.99 from the iOS App Store. It hasn’t been updated in a while, so it has a sometimes jarring iOS 6 feel and look. Despite the semi-old code, the app still carried out well on my iPhone 5s running the current version of iOS 7.
