Collect your GIFs. Share them. Love them! If you're a GIF connoisseur, then you need an app that's as serious about them as you are. That's where GIFwrapped comes in.

• Use iCloud or Dropbox to add new GIFs and sync your collection. Keep your GIFs on multiple devices and have a backup in the cloud. The digital cloud. No one keeps GIFs in real clouds anymore, everything gets too wet.
• Use the bundled Messages app to share GIFs from your Library with your friends in seconds. No muss, no fuss.
• Drag and drop GIFs en mass to and from GIFwrapped. Drag them all! Drag them good!
• Find new GIFs using Giphy powered search! Just bang in a phrase like "cat" or "lumpy space princess" and be prepared for pure awesome to rain down on you from the heavens.
• Import GIFs, Bursts, and Live Photos from your Photo Library. Save them back to Photos, too, if that's your jam.
• Use an extension to quickly save images to your library! It's not sexy or anything, but it is super easy and probably fun by someone's standards!
• Preview GIFs in standard or retina quality. It all depends on whether you like pixels or not.

Upgrade your GIF game even further by subscribing to GIFwrapped Premium for US$4.99 per year (may vary from country to country), which unlocks awesome features, removes ads, and supports an independent creator.

• Turn off ads. I hate 'em as much as your do, but a guy's gotta eat.
• Bookmark searches for easy access the next time you want them. These things are important for those GIF standoffs your's somehow always getting into.
• Reuse, and recycle, your search history as a list of bookmarks, so revisiting the past doesn't need to involve time travel… or memory.
• Additional information about images within the Into panel, including number of frames, duration, and more. That way you can know your GIFs inside and out.
• Turn off the embedded watermark in Bursts and Live Photos. I mean, liking GIFwrapped is one thing, but to plaster the logo over GIFs of your pets? Probably a bit much.

If you choose to subscribe to GIFwrapped Premium, payment will be charged to your iTunes account, and the subscription will automatically renew within 24 hours of the end of the current period. You can manage this in Account Settings. Cancel your subscription at least 24 hours before the end of the current period to let it lapse.

What’s New

Version 2022.2

I'm back, and it's been a hectic week… at least in part because I've been cobbling together fixes for the highest priority issues to come out of the latest release. In all honesty, this is why big releases that take a long time are dangerous: stuff slips through the cracks. If you got caught up in the nonsense, then please know: I'm truly sorry.

- In moving the library state over to using Codable structures, I forgot to account for dates as being a type of thing that needed to be decoded. I know, right? This obviously came back to bite me when a bunch of people who use Dropbox or iCloud sync updated to find their local library empty, which was simply because the data couldn't be read from disk correctly. Not… ideal.

- Dropbox's short-lived tokens are the gift that keeps on giving. The token update did help to ease a lot of issues—because the token could actually refresh—but there were still some calls that would occur after expiration, so they'd error out until the refresh occurred. I've now made it so that the token is pre-emptively refreshed for all Dropbox API calls, so there'll be significantly less of that nonsense.

- A small difference in padding between vertically and horizontally stacked labels in the GIF Info panel was causing constant layout updates and—in some cases—causing the app to completely lock up when opening a GIF's preview. Once I tracked it down, it wasn't hard to resolve: just make certain calculations use the intended value rather than the current one. Very obvious… in retrospect.

- I'm never against introducing a small engine to GIFwrapped, especially when a website's creator uses and enjoys the app. So this release adds a bonus: rudimentary support for parsing the pages of @cackhanded's prolific GIF website, Plug in a URL (or use the share extension) and you're off. Thank me later (or more aptly, thank Mark Norman Francis, whose collection is… extensive).

Thanks for using GIFwrapped! If you need assistance, are still hitting bugs, or just want to share the love, please feel free to reach out to me via @gifwrapped on Twitter, or if you prefer all things email. I'm here to help where I can, or at least take notes so I can make my updates better.

Until next time, remember: a GIF is worth a thousand JPEGs.

Keeps crashing whenever I attempt to view a gif

Really enjoy this app as it is a pain to save gifs but recently whenever I put a link in and then try to view a gif, the app crashes. I would really appreciate it if you could get it fixed please.

Gifs not saving

The app was working fine since I installed it but now I can’t seem to save gifs at all. I just get a message saying unable to save at this time. I try again a day or 2 later and it still won’t save
