When it comes to recording cines, Cinemagram has a similar interface to Vine's, with its hold-to-record scheme. The difference here is that Cinemagram gives you only 4 seconds (compared with Vine's 6), and as I mentioned earlier it does not record audio.
Once you're done capturing, Cinemagram will take several seconds to process your footage, then it will present you with quite a few effects to treat it. The app gives you more than a dozen filters, looping and speed options, and, of course, the masking tool to turn your cine into a cinemagraph.
To turn your recorded footage into a cinemagraph, all you have to do is draw a mask around the portion of the screen that you want to remain in motion. The rest will remain a static photo. If you've never seen a cinemagraph, they can be beautifully artistic or sometimes downright creepy. Once you're done applying effects, you'll be able to add a caption and share to Twitter, Facebook, or Tumblr. There's also an option to share via e-mail, but I couldn't get that one to work, either.
The biggest flaw in this young Android app comes in the performance department. When using Cinemagram, I experienced a number of force-quits and some very laggy processing. What's more, a few features didn't work at all, like sharing my own cines through Gmail and using the Share tool to share links to other users' cines. Still, even with such issues, I found the app to be a great tool for creating cinemagraphs. Its recording process is as simple and intuitive as Vine's, and the effects menu is impressive.
