When Skrappy for iPad debuted in May priced at four bucks, it was money well spent for all the wow it packs in. Skrappy takes iPad photo slideshows to the next level, allowing you to create gorgeous mouth-watering presentations that incorporate music, movies (with multi-line text editing), voice memos, web pages, text and photos. It takes clues from Apple’s Keynote app (sticky guidelines, shadows, borders, crop shapes, detailed object properties) and ups the ante with fancy scrapbook themes and iBooks-like flipping through pages. The latest version comes with dozes of enhancements and is being priced at 99 cents for a limited time. It’s a steal so grab the app before the deal expires. More screenies and features after the break.
