Fotomecha reproduces the features and fun of a continuous-shooting toy camera on iOS.
When you capture a moving subject and press the shutter button, the shutter closes repeatedly with a "snap snap snap!". Just like that, a single photograph that incorporates multiple frames (or an animated GIF) comes out.
Set the exposure speed, frame count, and film type to create various kinds of works. You’ll enjoy the design like that of an analog camera, and the dial interface!
*Supports Live Photos!
It now supports Live Photos (on capable devices).
You can easily convert Live Photos to photos, videos, or animated GIFs. You can share Live Photos as photos or videos, and can send the output to other apps.

Ratings and Reviews
I really like the way Fotomecha works, yielding a sequential collage with one push of the shutter button. I would use it all the time if not for the low-resolution output. If possible, I would love it if you would increase this to the maximum. I would definitely recommend it to all of my photographer friends.
Ok. Enough for now
I got this app to make gifs for tumblr. It's good but the quality could still be a bit better even on high. Plus I hate that there is no front facing camera option.
Fantastic multi-shot camera app
Been around for years, outstanding performance. Good to see it is updated to the latest hardware and iOS too!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
