The Best Ways To Create Gifs From Your Phone

There’s no excuse needed to go over some of the best apps for creating gifs from your phone, but if you do need one: iOS 11 will natively support gifs in the camera roll. ?

Here are some of the apps I use. Type any of these app names into the App Store and you’ll be set.


 From scratch: Giphy Cam

Looking to make your own gif from scratch? Giphy Cam can help with that. You can also upload existing images and add plenty of effects.

Motion Stills is a dead simple way to transform your Live Photos from iPhone to gifs. Recommend this app to a parent. The app stabilizes also motion and you can add text.


 YouTube or video: Video to Gif
