The Pearl application is developed by Voicekick, Inc. (“Voicekick”) and makes it easy to turn the photos on your phone into engaging narrated videos or “pearls”. Using your voice to narrate your shared photos makes them more compelling, increases authenticity, and creates a stronger bond between you and your friends and followers. Pearl is also a great app for creating short promotional videos for your business that you care share on social media, video services, or wherever you would like. Pearl videos that you share to social media and other services are public. We encourage you to consider whether you want to make your ideas and thoughts public before posting them.
