Boomerang from Instagram makes everyday moments fun and unexpected. Create captivating mini videos that loop back and forth, then share them with your friends.

Find something (or someone!) that's moving, or create a video selfie by switching to the front-facing camera. There’s just one button. Tap it once and Boomerang does the rest: shoots a burst of 10 photos and turns them into a delightful mini video. Share it on Facebook and Instagram right from the app, or save your video to your camera roll to share later.


* Take mini videos of your life and yourself using the front and back facing camera.
* Download and start capturing immediately. No sign up or account required.
* There's just one button! The app takes 10 photos and stitches them together, speeds up the video and smooths out any bumps, then loops it back and forth.
* Share your videos on Instagram and Facebook right from the app, or share them later from your camera roll.

ITS AMAZING!! but, 1 problem…

It is honestly the best but I agree with the other person, it does need a timer for when you’re home alone or all by yourself with nobody else to record you so it must be true cos i love Boomerang and aBSOLUTELY NEVER lowercase have I done not five star rating anything at all ever so yeah you really do need to improve it by adding on a timer!! PLSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!
Kind Regards,

It’s amazing

You can take a quick vid and it will make it then actually do it again and again the thing it needs to work on is that we should be able to talk on it and do the cool vid all together so we can hear our voice and see what we did plz make improvements by Tayla🤞🏻❤️

Needs a timer

This is a seriously awesome app, but for some reason it doesn't have a timer which is super annoying when you want to capture something your doing but don't have someone to film it.
