App of the Week – GifBoom

This week it’s a fun app, with the hopes that you’ll capture some memories of Spirit Week.


GifBoom is a free app that lets you use your phone’s camera to create your own gifs, either with pictures or with short video. You can apply a filter, add text, speed it up, or slow it down.

I’ve only played with it a little bit, but so far it’s a lot of fun. You can take pictures or video within the app (although, when I did that, I couldn’t focus the camera), or you can load pictures or videos already in your phone’s gallery. The app will let you load up to 60 pictures for a single gif.

The app is free and available for both iOS and Android. If you do use it, you may want to go into settings as soon as you log in and change your privacy settings – the default is to make everything public.

Download the app and gif your Spirit Week! Friend me…I’m hilltoplibrary. Make gifs of your week. Send them to me (either through email or sharing in the app) and we’ll create a Spirit Week gif gallery! Maybe I’ll even have some fabulous junque for the best ones.
