Instagram launches Boomerang for turning camera bursts into short videos

Boomerang - Instagram
Instagram has today launched a new app for Android (and iOS), which stitches together quick burst photos into a short video – yep, it makes animated GIFs. Called Boomerang, the app stitches up to 10 photos together, speeds up the resulting video and then loops it.

It looks pretty simple, you can use the front or rear cameras and then it’s simply a matter of tapping the circle at the bottom of the screen and it does the rest. Once you’re done you can share to Instagram or Facebook. In theory you can share them anywhere from your camera roll, but it appears that some users are having issues sharing to Twitter according to their help page (we’re sure this will be fixed post-haste).
Boomerang - How To
Boomerang operates outside of Instagram so you don’t need an instagram account to use the app or share the ‘Boomerang’, but if you do you can apply all the usual Instagram filters and tools before you do.




Looks pretty neat if you want to create animated gifs, download Boomerang and give it a go, it’s free on Google Play right now.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

” if you want to create animated gifs, download Boomerang and give it a go”

Boomerang is a fun little app but it doesn’t create animated gifs, just short mp4 files.
