What I will be using ZapVM’s awesome app for?
I have made 4 ZapVM video’s, one for each of my kids, but can also see how I would use it with my blog. I mean think about it, if I am doing a review of a restaurant, book, kids toy, or anything else ZapVM can help me explain something better, and you understand what I am talking about better. Here is an example of what I am talking about, but remember I am still learning how to use the app so so ZapVM video will only get better over time.
Here is the 1st video I made, I am working on finishing up a few more for my kids… Just something sweet for them, and I am sure you will see more of this app in upcoming reviews.
