Downloading and Setting Up Zynn
You can easily find Zynn in Apple’s App Store, and Google’s Play Store. Usually trending on both, you can spot Zynn quickly via the company’s bespoke black and bright yellow branding. With an action-like yellow Z made out of diagonal lines, the app’s logo is perfectly reflective of the action and movement that is found within the app.
Once you download Zynn, make sure to allow the app to send you notifications. You can configure this setting at a later time in your smartphone’s settings menu, but proactively allowing notifications from the get-go will just allow you to set it and forget it. By allowing notifications, you’ll be alerted to activity on your videos and comments, meaning that you’ll never have to miss an interaction. Also, you won’t have to feverishly keep opening the app to make sure all of your friends liked your last video.
Immediately after allowing notifications, an initial video on the home screen will start to play, engulfing you in the world of Zynn right away. If you’re not sure how to keep the fun going, and don’t want to customize your profile right away, fear not. A handy-dandy finger icon appears once the first video finishes looping, instructing you to swipe up for the next video. If you’re here for entertainment, keep swiping up for creative content that will eventually become tailored to your likes by Zynn’s bespoke recommendation algorithm. If you’re ready to start customizing and creating, read on for tips to maximize this experience.
Setting Up Your Profile
If you’re ready to start the customization process, start creating your profile by tapping on the person icon on the bottom right hand corner. This “me” section is your personal hub, where you’ll find the tools needed to put your best foot forward. Signing up and logging into Zynn can be done with your mobile phone number, or through Google, Facebook, Apple, and Twitter. This enables you to choose your login method based on your own preferences.
Zynn then enables you to choose a profile image, and an “about me” blurb. Zynn users are notoriously creative, expressive, and authentic. Thus, this is the best place to show viewers and followers what you’re all about, and what they can expect from your channel. Zynn’s tagline is “be seen, be heard, be you”, and this quest for authenticity is showcased via this opportunity for self-expression.
Recording Amazing Videos
Ok, so you’ve made it this far. If you’re ready to start creating videos, click on the beckoning yellow circle at the bottom of the app’s home screen. Before taking your first video, you will be prompted to enable camera and microphone access. Obviously, this prompt will only come up the first time you use Zynn, unless you change these allowances via your smartphone’s settings. After you enable these settings, let the fun begin!
Much like your smartphone’s video setup, Zynn’s easy to use video capturing platform is clean, crisp, and minimal in potential disruption. This makes recording videos easy for the most novice user. The camera starts off forward-facing, but can easily be switched by tapping the camera button on the top right menu. Zynn’s instant beautification tool, also on the right hand menu, also allows you to look instantly polished without playing around with filters and customization options. However, to truly maximize your experience and self-expression, Zynn’s tools enable you to easily add fun stickers, sounds, effects, and images.
Using Zynn’s Tools
In order to add some spice to your videos, consider using Zynn’s customization tools to capture beautiful videos, edit videos to your heart’s content, and create the perfect final product. In addition to Zynn’s instant beautification enhancement, you can add filters to instantly change the feel of your video. Tapping on the filter icon, you can instantly test how different filters will change the aesthetic quality of your video before you start recording. For rustic “burnt out” effects, consider adding the river filter. For moody moments, the ink filter lends a film noir feel. Meanwhile, the rocky filter livens up dreary conditions.
Of course, visuals aren’t the only important facets of an awesome video. Zynn allows you to customize sounds through the app’s extensive soundtrack feature. You can choose from a large library of pre-recorded songs, sound effects, and sound clips to instantly serve up a soundtrack to your video. To import or create your own soundtracks, the app will request access to your Media Library. If you want to use your own music to take your videos to the next level, allowing this access will let you to instantly import sound to pop into your videos.
Perhaps the most fun customization tool in the app is the magical effects feature. By tapping this button, you’ll open up a Pandora’s box of fun. Instantly, you can be transformed into a cute deer, bearded lumberjack, or other cool character. Perfect for selfies and group shots, the magical effects are a cute way to transform your look. Many of these effects are also interactive, changing effects with the blink of an eye, or expression change.
