PowerDirector Android App 30 Voice First Microphone Recorder. Here's another way to use PowerDirector, as a Voice Recorder or Voice First Narrator freeing you up to add images and b roll video as and when you have it.

All you need do, add a color slide to timeline for the length you need and arm the voice over and off you go. THis may save time when you have to record an interview or when you are deep in creative thought and care little about recording video and taking still images.

I can use my Zoom H1 Mic and RecForge Pro II on the Moto G4 Android, but why bother if you have a plan and know what you need?

The post says Google expeditions are now available for everyone not just people in classrooms . I had a look at the app a month or so ago and thought that anyone could have a go but maybe it's changed since then

PowerDirector Android App 29 adding 61 Custom Fonts . I've added 61 custom fonts at ONLY 5.12mb which means this is an education issue, to learn how to do it for free and NOT a hard drive space hog. Adding a decent font is the ice on the video cake, if nothing else it spices up each video when done right ..

Custom Font Support was covered in my video here..
