GIFs (Graphics Interchange Format) are a current rage on social networks. There are lots of apps available for both Android and iOS to create GIFs. GIFBoom is one great GIF app which lets you to create, share, and comment on others’ GIFs. The first thing that you need to do after installing it  is to create an account using your Facebook, Twitter, or Email IDs. The app’s functionality is limited to just creation of GIFs and viewing others GIFs  if you don’t register yourself. Registered users can share their GIFs with their friends; like, comment, and share others’ GIFs; as well as collect the GIFs they like from other registered members.

GIFs can be created by taking the photos using the phone’s on-board camera. The app supports both front and rear cameras of the phone (support for front camera only for Android 2.3 and above). Created GIFs can be stored either on the device’s memory or securely hosted on the GIfBoom’s servers for free. Existing photos and videos on your device can also be converted into GIFs by accessing them from the phone’s media gallery. The created GIFs can be later edited by adding text and changing their speed.

Created GIFs can be shared with your friends through Email, Bluetooth and several social networks like Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr. Each of the registered member of GIFBoom community has a profile page (see above image) which looks similar to that of any other profile page on social networks.
