Fun but particular about keywords.

This app’s search feature is either too specific or too generic depending on your philosophy.
For example, tap on GIPHY in messenger. Type in search keywords “Lady Gaga” and half of the offerings are from Disney’s Lady and the Tramp. If you want only Lady Gaga, type in just “Gaga” as a keyword.
If you want a GIPHY of Queen Elizabeth II, be ready for frustration. You will get any queens including drag, you will get any Elizabeth, you will get anything with II, as Rocky II.
I tried “Keep Calm and Carry On”. I did not keep Calm nor carry on. I opened Google image search. Saved all the posters I liked, and post photographs.
But people love short animation. I blame US television commercials.

Abysmal Changes

I’ve been (very happily) using the Giphy web service for the last few years to make gifs that I feel are high quality and are fun to post. I felt very positively about Giphy until one day I logged in to continue my pleasant gif-making hobby and - suddenly - the ‘create gif’ button (a + at the top of my page) no longer directs me to where I make my gifs, but instead to an uncloseable screen that tells me to download the app. At first I thought I could click through this - I don’t like downloading a ton of apps, I keep my phone neat and storage relatively low - but when I tried to skip past it and reopen the page I found that I couldn’t. Now this is very frustrating, as I’ve been (and might I add again, very happily) using the web page for awhile - and suddenly the only way to access my ability to make gifs is to download the app? An app I was to find out works completely differently, much worse, and is way too busy? An app that takes up too much space on my phone? An app that I, by all means, do not want to download? I deleted it immediately, I didn’t even make a single gif. One of the worst changes I have ever seen to anything, ever. I want a working and accessible web page - not some ugly redirect to an app that doesn’t work in the way I’ve been using Giphy this entire time. I literally wish I could rate this lower than a one, but I unfortunately can’t. Do not download, it’s not worth your time. There are better.

Good GIF solution, but animation speed is wrong

I’m on an iPhone X with iOS 13.3. For some time now, I’ve noticed that when using the GIPHY keyboard to send texts (by just tapping the GIF image you want to use, and allowing it to automatically add the image to your text message), the animation-speed of the GIF that gets sent is noticeably slower that what the GIPHY keyboard showed, and the sent GIF usually ends several frames too soon. The only way I’ve found to send GIPHYs that play back at regular speed is to open the GIPHY *app*, and from there, I have the option to save a GIF to my camera roll. THEN I can go to my camera roll and attach THAT saved GIF to a text message.

It’s a few extra hoops to jump through, which is why I deducted a couple stars. As far as being able to quickly find appropriate and funny GIFs for my needs, it’s great.
