We love GIFs in the Appszoom office. It's our stock reply to almost all questions, and the only suitable way to express what we're truly feeling and thinking: announcements of joy, expressions of disapproval, birthdays, babies, having to go home with a dodgy tummy... And it's always a race to see who can out-trump the others with the wittiest and most amusing animated GIFs.
Here's how to create quick animated GIFs with your iPhone:
1. Download and open GIPHY CAM for iPhone, and allow it access to your camera and your camera roll.
2. Choose from any of the 40 filters, overlays, and effects to pimp out yer GIF (you'll find these just under the camera view).
3. Tap the Shutter button once to create a GIF using burst mode, or press and hold to record a video that converts into an animated GIF. In burst mode, the GIF will play forward and then in reverse before it begins looping. When you choose to record a video, it'll play forward and then loop.
4. Admire your finished GIF masterpiece, then save it to your camera roll, and/or share it via SMS, Facebook Messenger, Twitter, Instagram, or email.
