As the popularity of photography apps continues to rise on mobile platforms, people are finding creative new ways to share special moments with their friends.
Cinemagram, a free iOS app that creates animated “cines,” lets users add filters and apply effects to clips before animating. The result is a GIF file the company calls “part-photo and part-video.”
“Cinemagram has become a fun way for people to capture and share special moments of their lives,” says Andre Charoo, head of partnerships at Cinemagram. “Users are sharing these moments by simply capturing two-second video clips that we’ve re-created in a format that’s perfect for quick mobile consumption.”
