Wikipedia defines GIF or Graphics Interchange Format as “a bitmap image format that was introduced by CompuServe in 1987 and has since come into widespread usage on the World Wide Web due to its wide support and portability.” We define it as “fun of 3 seconds”.
GIFs have become hugely popular specially on the websites like Tumblr and Reddit. They’re great for instant and quick humor. If you want to create your own GIFs, here are some Android apps that let you do so.
1. Gif Me! Camera
This app lets you create GIFs which can be up to 14 seconds long. It also lets you add color filters to your GIFs just like you do with photos on Instagram. With features like stop motion and video mode, your GIFs will surely be different from the rest.
If you have used GIFs frequently than you must have heard about GifBoom. It is one of the most popular GIF website. GifBoom lets you create GIFs from your camera or by using images from your gallery. You can add your own text in the GIF, change its speed, rotate it to make it look amazing. You can create GIFs that are up to 60 seconds long which is longer than many other apps.
3. GIF Camera
GIF Camera lets you create small GIFs using your camera (hence, the name). You can also control the speed of the animation. It is not as powerful as other apps in the list but it is totally free (without any in-app purchase) so it won’t hurt to give it a shot.
It also works as a hub where you can see other popular GIFs.
4. GIF Creator
It does what the name says. This app lets you create 30 second GIFs using videos and photos. You can also use your camera to shoot video for a GIF in the app as well. The main focus of the app is to show you the animations other people have made.
GIFs are everywhere and you must see them everyday. If you ever wanted to create your own, the apps that we mentioned above will surely make you happy.
