Ever wondered how people make all those awesome GIFs that they post on their social media feeds? The answer is Momento. This handy tool makes fun animated GIFs quickly and easily. If you have no idea what a GIF is, allow us to explain. It's an image file that combines several still frames to make a looping animated clip.
To make life really simple, Momento scans your photo library, finding collections of photos for you and turning them into GIFs automatically within the app's Moments tab. If you like, you can then edit these premade GIFs to add filters and effects. Alternatively, you can create your own from scratch (subscribe to the Pro version for this) from any shots in your camera roll or by taking a series of new ones.
It gets really fun with effects. Select from a range of familiar-looking filters, choose VHS-style or make your images look like a painting. You can change the direction of flow for the image sequence or add moving hearts or balloons in the background. Our favourite feature is the Zoom function, which creates the impression of zooming in and out as the GIF loops. If this sounds complicated, don't worry, you'll be making amazing GIFs in minutes.
Fun fact: If you love to organize apps by colour schemes, Momento gives you two colour choices for its app icon—pink or blue. Bonus.
