All of us know how popular the Instagram app for the iOS and Android has become, and more people are using it as time passes. This app has become so popular that Facebook got the company for a $1 billion cash-plus-stock deal. Though the Instagram app has its benefits, if you are looking to add more creativity to your images, then an app by the name, Gifture is for you. Gifture is a free app that ends the gap between static images and video, and it helps to animate your photos, which can be shared on social-networking websites.
This app allows a series of quickly snapped images to be combined together, and this way provides the user with an animated experience. Through Gifture, you can apply filters to the images and select the playback rate, and after you are satisfied with what you have created, you can upload your creation for others to see.
James MacDonald, the creator of Gifture said that idea of this app came when he got to know about CinemaGraphs.com back in June 2011. For him, the GIFs on the website were stunning, and then he came up with an idea of creating an app that will have an Instagram-like base but will use GIFs instead of still images, for the iPhone and the iPad.
The main features of the Gifture app are;
- Capture frames in real-time or use images in the device.
- Apple a wide range of filters.
- Selection of customized playback rates for each image.
- Sharing with GIF network, Facebook and Twitter.
- Saving the creation to the Camera Roll in the device.
- Slow swipe of the screen allows a view of each individual frame.
So, if you are bored with static images and want to animate them, then you can download the Gifture app from the App Store.
