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.

Good App 😊

I downloaded this app and was pleasantly surprised at how much I liked it. The videos you can make can be funny and mesmerising. There are a few things that are a bit annoying. To find the settings menu, you have to tap four times with four fingers, which takes a few attempts to work. Also, it saves all your boomerangs into your camera roll, which takes up room, and when I deleted them it deleted it off the app completely. Apart from that, great app. 👍🏻

Miss app reveiwer ,

Okay ....

This app is good and you can make cool vids however if you have instagram there is no point because you can get this on you story camera! If you don’t have instagram it would be a cool app to have for fun vids but i do think that there should be some filters or other effects to make it more interesting... it only has one thing to to on the whole app which is quite boring!! If the creator is reading this please take this comment into high consideration, and I would expect a large amount of users on this app would enjoy some more filters! It would be nice for you to reply to know that the creator of this is taking it into recommendation. Thanks!
