Shuttersong: the new musical alternative to Snapchat and Instagram

Shuttersong: the new musical alternative to Snapchat and Instagram

Ever find yourself sitting in your morning lecture wishing you could relive the night before?

Photos just don’t quite cut it, do they? Well, we’ve got the perfect solution for you. The first app of its kind, Shuttersong brings your photos to life by allowing you to combine pictures with up to 15 seconds of music or sound. And, best of all, it’s completely free.

Easier than making a video and small enough to send in one file, the beautiful wordless interface makes it quick and easy to make and share Shuttersongs with your friends. The app also keeps the quality of your photos intact, so it’s a great way to add a bit of a creative touch to your photography.

The opportunities for creating Shuttersongs are endless. Try adding your own live recordings to those great shots you got of the band last week, or your own voice to your selfies. Whether you’re adding songs to photos of nights out or putting your own recorded sounds to memes, Shuttersong lets you make your pictures your own.

Oh, and you know that moment your friend stacked it on the way to the party? Wouldn’t it be great if you could add the soundtrack to ‘Down’ by Jay Sean? Shuttersong’s easily shareable jpeg files mean you can share it all over social media too. Perfect.

With Valentine’s Day coming up, it’s the perfect opportunity to try it out. We love the idea of adding some romantic tunes to our loved-up selfies. Give it a go this Valentine’s Day, whether you’re cosying up or heading out, and share your #VDayShuttersongs with us @TheStudentGuide.

Shuttersong is already hugely successful in the US and is now on track to be the next big thing over here. You can check out what people are doing with the app by following @ShuttersongUK on Twitter and download the app for free here.
