Vhoto is one of those iPhone camera apps which perform exactly the same function as stated by their developer on the app’s description page. I am very much impressed with the app as it really helped me in extracting the best photos from various videos in my collection.
The only disadvantage is that the app picks the best photos for you from the video. It doesn’t show the photos frame by frame like in a timeline so you can pick which frame you want to take as a photo. This app only lets you pick photos which the app selected for you. You can try Image Grab free software, in case you want to choose photos in a frame by frame method.
The social community of the app is also good which can help you in making some new friends or just discover some really amazing and unique pics. This app is definitely worth a try.
