Instagram launches Boomerang — creates GIF-like videos

Instagram launches a standalone app called Boomerang and it creates GIF-like videos that you can share on different social media platforms easily. Always wanted to do an infinite flip? Now you can!


Shooting either landscape or portrait, the app stitches photos into a one-second video that loops in a forward and backward motion. Capturing should be done in-app but you can later on save the finished video into your album to share anywhere online.

Check out the video to see how it works:

Boomerang is now available for free on iOS and Android.
