This evening I reset my Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 to its original factory settings. I did it because I had run out of storage on the device. Installing an app a day for months will fill up any device and since I only use about ten of those apps on a regular basis it was quicker to do a factory reset than manually remove dozens of apps. When I reset the tablet and started it back up, I discovered a nice video creation app that is pre-installed on the device and that I had overlooked for six months.
Movie Studio is a default app installed on the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and other devices using Honeycomb (Android 3.0+). Â (As a point of clarification I have the original model not the newly released version 2). The app allows you to mix together image, video, and sound files to create a short movie on your tablet. There are some basic transitions that you can place between elements. You can also insert some text. As you might guess, the entire Â creation process takes place on a timeline in a drag and drop style. Your finished movie can be saved on Â your tablet (warning, that will eat up storage quickly), emailed, or uploaded directly to YouTube.
I searched all over Google Play and the Samsung App store, but unfortunately could not find a way to install Movie Studio on other devices. But if you have a tablet running Honeycomb, make sure you don’t overlook Movie Studio. Movie Studio could be a great app for students to create movies on the go.
Important Update: Minutes after I posted this Tammy Lind Tweeted to me that Movie Studio is a part of Android 4.0.
