Appafolio is a pretty useful iOS app which brings a rather new concept to iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. There are many apps which will let you create slideshows for official purposes, but Appafolio is focused on making your photos and videos more presentable, and lets you create a portfolio of your work which you can share with any of your friends. You can use Appafolio through the app, or from its web version, and the results are pretty neat.
First of all, you have to sign up for a new account before you can start using the app. The sign up procedure is carried out on the web version, and once done, you can start creating a new portfolio. Before that, you can take a complete tour of the app. The first step is to name your portfolio. Appafolio treats each new portfolio as an app of sorts, and there are three options on the app creation page. First of all, you have to choose an icon for the app you are creating. There are some default icons available in Appafolio, or if you want, you can choose a custom icon as well. The app also allows you to apply a custom theme, which will be used as the background of your portfolio. All this can be done by going to the Settings menu.
By tapping the App Creator button, you can begin uploading content to your app, but before you can do that, you have to specify the type of content you want to upload. The offered options include Image, Video and Slideshow. So, after you have chosen the type of the screen you want to add to your portfolio, you have to add a title and description for it in the respective fields. The app also lets its users customize the font and text color of the description. Appafolio will let you remove a particular screen, and you can also change the position of any screen by dragging them from the hand icon.
Once you are done creating an Appafolio app, you can share it with other users by sharing your passcode. Both the web, and iOS versions of the service can be used to view the created portfolio. This feature might feel like a limitation, as only users of the service can view your work, but when you come to think of it, Appafolio is pretty useful, as it lets you create a portfolio which can be displayed on your iDevice with ease.
Appafolio is a free app, just like the web service it offers, and you can grab it by going to the download link given below.
