Similar to the megapopular Cinemagram app for iOS, Fotodanz for Android lets you easily create cinemagraphs using your mobile device's camera. Cinemagraphs -- for those who don't know -- are artsy images that are essentially hybrid still photos and animated GIFs. Typically, they are difficult to create, but with Fotodanz that's not the case.

To use the app, compose a photo like you normally would. Fotodanz will then take a still shot, and shoot a few seconds of video simultaneously. From there, just select the region of your photo you want to animate, and the rest of the photo will remain static. It's that easy.
