Bored of scrolling through the same old photos, try using the Boomerang from Instagram – the brand new Android and iOS app aimed to let you shoot a burst fire of photos, which it then turns into a four-second looping back & forth animated GIF.
About the Boomerang from Instagram:
Probably the most recent release from the Instagram, Boomerang is so simple that it’s hard to fault it for adding to iPhone app overload.
What this app does is that it changes a short video into a back-and-forth loop for an assuming effect. It doesn’t try to generate its own new social video network. Instead, it relies on already presenting hugely social networks.
Overall, Boomerang is pretty much a one-trick video-effect pony, but ponies are fun, and everyone wants one!
Pretty similar to that of Layout and Hyperlapse, Boomerang also presents hardly any interface at all. Once you’ve permitted the App to access your phone’s camera, you only see a selfie view on the cover with a big shooting button and a camera-switcher button.
When switched to the rear-facing cam, a tooltip suggests you “try reaching something that’s moving.”
Switching to the front-facing camera will take you to “selfie boom” mode.
How does the Boomerang App work?Instead of shooting a video, the App uses your camera’s burst photo mode. The result of that is a comical jerky look, quite similar to a stop-motion animation or a flipbook.
The slight motion is also there to give images a weird 3D effect!
Boomerang comes in with the ability to turn a moving object in the video into a 4-second looping video clip by repeating the forward-and-backward movement. It’s kind of funny seeing your friends walking in rapid alternating forward and reverse motion.
How social is Boomerang from Instagram?
Once you have created a Boomerang or selfieboom, you will see the screen showing three big sharing buttons, including Instagram, Facebook, and the rest. Sharing to the Facebook or Instagram cannot be done directly; instead those apps open with their own options, like tagging. When sharing to Instagram, you’ll get all its effect filters and related video-editing options.
The last of the three sharing buttons is aimed to let you share the mini-video to any app on your phone with the sharing capability.
Conclusion regarding the Boomerang from Instagram:
Overall, using the Boomerang App is a great experience, most essentially, if you’re tired of canned GIFs and want to generate your own entertaining, shareable quick hits.
The App has a non-existent learning curve and doesn’t require signing up for any separate account. Also, it won’t cost you anything. Except maybe, a fraction of creative effort!
