The apps dubbed “appsperiments” are available on both the iOS App Store and Google Play. The three apps in question are called Storyboard, Selfissimo!, and Scrubbies.
The first, Storyboard, turns videos into single-page comic layouts on your device. Turning photos into images inspired by art – including comic book art – is something that grew popular with the launch of the A.I.-powered editing app Prisma.
Selfissimo! (iOS, Android) is an automated selfie photographer that snaps a stylish black and white photo each time you pose. Tap the screen to start a photoshoot. The app encourages you to pose and captures a photo whenever you stop moving. Tap again to end the session and review the resulting contact sheet, saving individual images or the entire shoot.
Scrubbies (iOS) allows you to easily manipulate the speed and direction of video playback to produce lovely video loops that highlight actions, capture funny faces, and replay moments. You can shoot a video in the app and then remix it by scratching it like a DJ.

The PhotoScan app opens up your smartphone camera and asks you to position a printed photo within the frame. After you line up the printed photo within the frame, you will need to tap on the shutter button. The shutter button triggers the flash and shows four white circles on the corners of the printed photo. Once you hover your phone camera above each white circle, PhotoScan will automatically crop, remove the light glare and enhance the photos. And after the photo is processed, you can manually adjust the corners and rotate as necessary.When you are finished digitizing your photos, you can save all of the scans to your camera roll with one tap. After the photos are added to the camera roll, you will see a confirmation and a button to open the Google Photos app where the scans can be viewed.
