Instagram Launches New App ‘Boomerang’ For Making GIF-Like Videos

The standalone app, called “Boomerang,” rolled out on iOS and Android devices earlier this week . The bare-bones app combines photos into one-second videos that play forward and backward in a loop. Videos can be shot in portrait or landscape and automatically save to users’ camera rolls. Although Boomerang videos must be shot within the app, they can be shared on Instagram or elsewhere online.
