We've yet to see an app that is the definitive solution to creating animated GIFs using your iOS device, but Moquu is setting to buck that trend.
The app simplifies the process of creating animated GIFs from your photos by making it just as easy to apply different effects as it is to simply animate a photo. Frame delay can be adjusted as well as the playback speed, with a special timelapse mode adding further functionality. Near obligatory filter options are also available to add a special touch to creations.
Once something has been created, it's similarly easy to share via all the most popular social networks such as Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr, as well as embedding options for blogs and websites. Folder organization options make it easy to manage plenty of different GIFs for creative types who love to animate everything possible.
Moquu is available through separate iPhone and iPad versions with Retina display support for owners of the New iPad.
Both are available for free.
Once upon a time, when the internet was still a little unfriendly to newbies and everything was more complex to figure out, animated GIFs were all the rage and people would flock to fairly complicated animated GIF software in the hope that they could create something spectacular. It rarely worked well without investing a lot of time into the practice.
Now, we live in a world that offers the likes of Jittergram in a free and easy to use package, straight from an iOS device. A few taps of the screen and users can create a 3D stereogram or long stop motion animation via their iOS camera. The app shows the previous frame on top of the current camera view so it's simple to line things up accurately.
The results are quick and easy to view, and pretty impressive with a steady hand and some practice. Once created, users can then share with their friends via Twitter or e-mail.
Best of all? Jittergram is completely free to use.
Despite the widespread availability of mobile video sharing, the animated GIF has yet to die. Tumblr has a lot to do with that. But for those who want to create silly animated GIFs from their phones and iPods, what recourse is there? Well, there's now GifBoom!
This lets users create animated GIFs by either taking photos or importing them from the Camera Roll. Users can capture up to 20 frames at a time in a picture, with the ability to pause while capturing new frames. It is even possible to import frames from videos, to convert them into animated GIFs. Users can then adjust the frame rate, reverse the order, crop and rotate the images, and even add different Instagram-esque effects to them.
Then, images can be shared in a variety of ways. By signing up with GifBoom, it's possible to share directly to that haven for animated GIFs, Tumblr – along with Facebook, Twitter, email, and via the built-in Messages app. AS well, it's possible to sync images via iTunes File Sharing, or to save images to the Camera Roll. Images are also publishable to the public GifBoom service, with plenty of random GIFs available to view, and users to follow as well. The app is available for free.
