Best editing app! For gifs and photos.

For the longest time, I’ve wanted photoshop to do fancy edits with transparent backgrounds and being able to overlay gifs on top of each other. For about 6 years, I’ve tried multiple apps and they all couldn’t even come close to the capabilities of Adobe.

However, I was recommended this app by an editor that I like. Ever since I’ve opened this, it feels like my hobby as a gif/photo editor has changed completely. Any apps made on this app benefits you and doesn’t seem like just another cash grab for money by people that think you’re stupid. It has so many capabilities such as stickers, filters, and my favorite— the ability to change the canvas. It is so, so useful and I honestly recommend that everyone that either doesn’t have photoshop or a desktop download it. Because it is worth every single five star review given on here and will save you a bunch of time and energy in exchange for fun.

Best app for stop-motion animation

I use this app weekly to produce animations from my phone using the photos from my photo stream. They’ve improved it in many ways over the years, including the ability to reorder frames which is huge! I love being able to go back and forth to select which photos I do and don’t want to use frame by frame.

The one feature I would most love for them to improve is the ability to place additional photo frames after you start building your timeline anywhere you want. They did add the ability to add frames at the end of a sequence, which is huge! But unlike all of the other frames, you can’t drag to reorder them, you can only place them at the end. This makes this feature pretty useless for my purposes, but it’s almost a great feature. Overall, thanks for your work on this app!

Developer Response ,

Hello, thank you for your sweet words. We really appreciate it. We definitely will keep working hard to develop the app to make it even better ;)

When you add photo/video, you can reorder them by long press! On the Frame View screen, you will be able to see the photos/videos on the top.(Above the frames) Long press the photos/videos that you would like to reorder, then you will be able to move them, don't need to move the frame by frame. ;) Please kindly try this out and let us know at if you experience any difficulty.

I hope this helps. Once again, thank you so much for being our user!😊

The best gif making app

Pre-Rave Rant: I’m so tired of all the apps being like “you get limited features for free, if you want more than 2 features or making 3 things ever, you have to subscribe for $10/month” like no. I used to be able to buy the full version of an app for $2. Am I supposed to sink hundreds of dollars a year to have the pro version of multiple apps? So stupid.

Actual Raving Review: THIS APP actually lets you do things. If you want to just do some basic stuff the free version is fine but there’s a watermark in the corner. And it’s $8 for one lifetime purchase which I almost want to pay just out of appreciation. And even the free version still lets you convert from multiple file types and arrange each frame as you like. Thank you so much to the makers of this app 🥰
