Ubisoft, the company behind the wildly popular Just Dance series of games for consoles, has announced that Autodance – by Just Dance for iOS is now available for free in North American through the iTunes App Store. Compatible with iPhone and iPod touch, Autodance has been download over 7 million times worldwide.
Don’t confuse Autodance with the gameplay of Just Dance, however, as it’s more about sharing/showing off your moves than about competing with friends. Ubisoft describes it thus:
Through the Autodance app, users record videos of themselves and/or friends showing off their best dance moves and then instantly create Just Dance videos on their smartphone to share with friends, family and the rest of the world. The app records four sequences and then transforms them into a hilarious dance video matching one of the three Just Dance 4 songs including everyone’s favorite summer hit, Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe.”
Users can apply video effects such as “8MM Vintage,” “Thermal Vision,” and “Mosaic,” then share the video via Facebook, YouTube, or email. Another option is the built-in Just Dance TV, which also lets users browse videos, take part in competitions, give and receive comments, and explore featured videos.
Autodance – by Just Dance is available now free, and comes with “Call Me Maybe” by Carly Rae Jepsen, “Everybody Needs Somebody to Love” by Dancing Bros., and “Crazy Little Thing” by Anja.
