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.

Impossibe to find settings menu

I love this app - really good fun and such a simple idea. But why, oh why, oh why, for the love of happiness is the settings menu only accessible by tapping the screen with FOUR fingers, FOUR times. It's insane. And almost impossible to get right. So many reviews on here requesting the option to speed up or slow down the action - which you can do, if you can find the menu, which clearly no-one has! What's wrong with a little hamburger or cog icon top left or something? Please change this.

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. 👍🏻

It’s ok but should have fun filters

I think honestly that this app is great but it should have fun filters to give it a more children vibe. Boomerang is also fun because you don’t have to post it share it or do anything like that you can just save it to your photos. Also, how it takes loads of photos and does a mini video of it and keeps on replaying it. It’s a very good app for little kids to use and all. Overall this is a very good game and you should definitely get it.
