Ratings and Reviews
Pleasant to use, but feature-minimal
Compared to all the apps for working with live photos that rely on absurd subscriptions and intrusive ads, this is a breath of fresh air!
Unfortunately, there are many features it doesn’t have which I would expect or hope it would.
Some functionality that doesn’t seem to be supported as of this review (Oct. 2021):
- specify resolution
- trim video clip
- back-and-forth looping
- trim video
I’ve only used this app for a few minutes so far, so there are probably many other things I haven’t looked for (and I haven’t explored all the types of conversion it does support).
If this app does what you need it to, I highly recommend it! It seems to work great, it looks quite good, and it’s pretty lightweight and speedy.

Thank you for the in depth review. You are spot on! A few things: the app allows you to choose the resolution when you convert to a GIF however it defaults to the video resolution when converting videos and Live Photos. This is because the majority of the time, the video quality at the highest setting is works great.
For cropping video, you can always use the video cropper built into to Photos app that ships with iOS. I didn’t want to reinvent the wheel because Apple does it so well.
Feel free to reach out via the support button in the app if you would like to discuss other features.
Thanks again for taking the time to review! I really appreciate it and I’m so happy to hear that you enjoyed what the app has to offer.
Wish I never bought this...👎🏻👎🏻
Where to start? ok sound it sounded cool turn your gifs into Live Photo’s and which sounds pretty awesome and it’s only 1$ why not get it? So I made that mistake... when you go into the app it lets you pick from five categories I chose the gif to Live Photo, when I did clicked on it there was no individual photo albums just my main one panoramas burst and video not much of a selection.. also you would think that if you (choose) gif to Live Photo it would only show you gifs well it doesn’t and you click on one that’s a regular photo (I don’t even know why it doesn’t short them...) it sends you back to the main menu to start all over again... so this app is already a freaking big pain plus I had to pay a 1$ for it and there’s more issues... after you finally select a a gif which *there is no way to tell* it gives you a few options which non of them mater.. then after you save your photo to the camera roll the Live Photo plays not for as long as your gif does not as long as a normal love photo would.. but only for a half second... omg this app is complete 🤮garbage🤮 if you see this review don’t pay a dolor just save your money

I appreciate your feedback and apologize for the difficulty you experienced with my app. I would like to help you with these. The app tries to figure out the best albums to use for the different conversion options. You should be able to see all images in your camera roll when selecting Gif to Live Photo. The problem is, there is know way for the app to know that each photo is actually a GIF without first loading the entire image and checking then. That's why we show all images and allow you to select the right one. If the selected image is not a GIF, then we can't convert it to a Live Photo so it starts over.
For your point of "it gives you a few options which non of them mater", it only give you one option, which is to select the cover fame of your Live Photo, this does matter in fact.
"then after you save your photo to the camera roll the Live Photo plays not for as long as your gif does not as long as a normal love photo would.. but only for a half second"
This has more to do with your gif. Gifs are played at a rate of 12 frames per second, so if the GIF you selected only has 6 frames, That's how you would see a 0.5 second Live Photo.
Anyway, please send me and email. You can contact me directly from the app and I can help you get things sorted out.
Works Great! Fast and Easy!
I wanted to make some Gifs that are on my Mac into Live Photo screensavers for my iPhone 8, and this app did the trick.
Through experimenting, this is how it worked for me: I Airdropped the Gifs to my phone, which saved them in Camera Roll; then with this app, I chose each photo (I did this one at a time), converted them to Live Photos, then clicked to export them, and then chose save to phone. Then they automatically go into the Live Photos folder on your phone to choose as wallpapers in the future.
Great app, great price. Thank you, developer!
