"Transitions are a great way to enhance and play up the mood, look and feeling you want your slideshows to achieve if they are executed well. We also did not forget to work on performance and stability which are essential to every creative process."
Boinx engineers also went under-the-hood in version 3.8 to tune-up the software's performance and audio playback for a more streamlined and efficient workflow. In accord with the iPhone and iPad's support for HD movies, Boinx added an HD 720p format option to FotoMagico's iPhone sharing plug-in, allowing users to display their HD movies on a HDTV with the appropriate connector cables.
