Tap That App: Make GIFs on the go

1:46 /

Animated GIFs are all the rage, and with this mobile app, you can even create your own to share with the Internet.

Hey guys, welcome to Tap That App... the show where we dig up the hottest apps for your tappin� pleasure. I�m sure you�ve seen animated GIFs...or �Graphic Interchange Formats�...make a huge comeback on the Internet. You�ve got animated GIFs (also simply knows as GIFs) with popular scenes from movies like Anchorman...(love that scene)..and GIFs of cats...lots of them...reading books and playing with iPads! And of course, we can�t forget the most iconic GIF... the dancing baby. If you had a Geocities site, and it didn�t include the creepy baby dancing with hypnotic gyrations in a diaper... you just lost some geek cred. But now you have a chance to make it up by creating your very own photo animation with the 99-cent GIF SHOP. When you open the app, the camera will automatically launch. You�ll take a photo which will be your first frame...then another photo for your second...and so on..until you have enough to create an animation. To help you line up your object...which keeps the gif consistent... a faint layer of the last photo taken will show up. When you�ve got all your frames, hit the Play button, to preview it...and use the slider to slow down or speed up the animation to get the effect you want. Then, when you�re satisfied, hit the settings button to select the resolution...tap Done...then tap the Arrow to share your GIF to a social networking site like Facebook. You can also send it to a friend via email or MMS...or just email it to yourself to get the GIF file for use anywhere you want. For more awesome apps like this, check out other episodes of the show...and send me any GIFs you make on Twitter. For CNET, I�m Sharon Vaknin. Happy tapping.
