Remember GroupShot? That magical app which blew our mind few months back. The developers behind GroupShot are back with another app for iPhone, which they call StillShot.

StillShot might not be as magical as GroupShot, but it is incredibly useful. How often you have felt sad for missing that perfect moment while clicking a photo? How often have you gone to take a picture and realized your iPhone was still in video mode? Well, you don’t need to fret anymore, as StillShot comes to your rescue in all these scenarios. StillShot helps you create high quality photos from any video on your iPhone.

With StillShot, you can dissect a video, frame-by-frame, choose the single frame which captures that perfect moment and save it as a full resolution photo! For example, on an iPhone 4s, you can save the pic at 1080p (1920*1080px).


Much like GroupShot, StillShot scores with its ease of use. All you need to do is fire up the app, choose the video, wait for a second for the app to dissect the frames and save the best frame as a photo. Customary features like sharing the photo on Facebook & Twitter are available as well.

Over the last week, I’ve used StillShot extensively during IPL cricket matches. For fast moving sporting actions, StillShot was a boon as I didn’t have to worry about capturing a shaky picture of my favorite cricketers and just had to shoot the video, and let StillShot do the rest for me!

At $0.99, StillShot is a dollar well spent and a must-have weapon in your arsenal of iPhone photography apps.
