Is It Any Good?

This is a quick way to take treasured pictures and bring them together in a fun and lively video that can be shared with friends and family. MoShow - Slideshow Movie Maker makes it easy to create something with professional looking results and not a lot of time, effort, or knowledge. Users will sacrifice on controlling the finer details for simplicity of use, but there are other tools for those who want to get into the nitty-gritty. Although a tutorial or walkthrough wouldn't hurt, MoShow - Slideshow Movie Maker is fairly foolproof. At the time of review, it didn't work to upload a MoShow to Facebook. And, despite promises that the VIP account removes ads, we didn't see any ads (other than some pressure to upgrade) while making four free videos. Overall, with some discussion around purchases and sharing, it's a potentially fun, creative tool for kids.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
