Collect your GIFs. Share them. Love them! If you're a GIF connoisseur, then you need an app that's as serious about them as you are. That's where GIFwrapped comes in.

• Use iCloud or Dropbox to add new GIFs and sync your collection. Keep your GIFs on multiple devices and have a backup in the cloud. The digital cloud. No one keeps GIFs in real clouds anymore, everything gets too wet.
• Use the bundled Messages app to share GIFs from your Library with your friends in seconds. No muss, no fuss.
• Drag and drop GIFs en mass to and from GIFwrapped. Drag them all! Drag them good!
• Find new GIFs using Giphy powered search! Just bang in a phrase like "cat" or "lumpy space princess" and be prepared for pure awesome to rain down on you from the heavens.
• Import GIFs, Bursts, and Live Photos from your Photo Library. Save them back to Photos, too, if that's your jam.
• Use an extension to quickly save images to your library! It's not sexy or anything, but it is super easy and probably fun by someone's standards!
• Preview GIFs in standard or retina quality. It all depends on whether you like pixels or not.

Upgrade your GIF game even further by subscribing to GIFwrapped Premium for US$3.49 per year (may vary from country to country), which unlocks awesome features, removes ads, and supports an independent creator.

• Turn off ads. I hate 'em as much as your do, but a guy's gotta eat.
• Bookmark searches for easy access the next time you want them. These things are important for those GIF standoffs your's somehow always getting into.
• Reuse, and recycle, your search history as a list of bookmarks, so revisiting the past doesn't need to involve time travel… or memory.
• Additional information about images within the Into panel, including number of frames, duration, and more. That way you can know your GIFs inside and out.
• Turn off the embedded watermark in Bursts and Live Photos. I mean, liking GIFwrapped is one thing, but to plaster the logo over GIFs of your pets? Probably a bit much.

If you choose to subscribe to GIFwrapped Premium, payment will be charged to your iTunes account, and the subscription will automatically renew within 24 hours of the end of the current period. You can manage this in Account Settings. Cancel your subscription at least 24 hours before the end of the current period to let it lapse.

What’s New

Version 2020.2

Guess who's back, back again? It's GIFwrapped, with some more bug fixes (tell a friend).

- A change to how windows are handled in iOS13 seemed to make it so that they aren't automatically held onto when presenting alerts in them, which made the image deletion prompt relieve itself of duty prematurely. I made a quick tweak to ensure that the window is kept around, and things are once again working much more like one would expect.

- When renaming GIFs, the sync engine could get stuck in a loop of attempting to update the server; it would actually work the first time, but the local metadata wasn't being updated with the change afterwards, so it'd just keep trying over and over. I added an extra line to force the metadata update for that particular piece of information, and now it's working as expected again.

- The status bar was going dark when opening the in-app settings screen, which is one of those very minor visual bugs that I just can't abide. After taking a look, I realised that I no longer need the hands-on approach to status bar management I'd previously had, so I got to delete some code to fix the issue. DANG THAT FEELS GOOD

- Speaking of incredibly minor visual things, the user guide's search bar was bothering me, in that it was showing as a _very_ faded looking version of the colour it was intended to be. I tweaked the appearance to try and make it a little better, and now I'm… well, not happy, but definitely a little less irked.

Remember: always wash behind your ears… and that if you want to let me know about any issue you're having, you can always tweet @gifwrapped or email with the issue. It helps make things better for everyone!

Great app, but lacking in some areas

Let me start by saying I really love this app, however, there are some issues.
1. The feature that lets me save gifs from twitter by sharing them directly to GIFwrapped only works about half the time. I usually have to end up manually doing it by copying the share link and opening the GIFwrapped app itself.
2. After the recent update this month, I can no longer send gifs in iMessage via the iMessage app. It simply refuses to load any gifs. While I can still share them from the app, this is inconvenient.

Other than these two issues the app is great and enjoyable. Hopefully they will be fixed soon so I can rate this app higher.

Great idea and execution; Responsive and kind developer

This app such a fun, wonderful idea that I didn’t know I needed. GIFs remain one of the most enjoyable forms of digital self-expression, and GIFwrapped makes it easier than ever. The few bugs I experienced at the recent new version’s launch were quickly addressed. It’s important to understand that software development isn’t necessarily easy, and changing one thing can easily introduce bugs that would have been impossible to anticipate sometimes. If you haven’t done your part as a user of the app and contacted the developer for support and to report the issues you experienced, then it is unfair to leave a negative review based on those bugs. Give them a chance. And I can tell from my experience so far with this app, that they will do their best to resolve the issue and probably kindly inform you what went wrong too. I’m impressed with the support and service. That is to say nothing of the excellent panel design that is becoming an important player on iPhone apps, and the ability to access your library from the Files app. Yeah there are some bugs but if you reach out to the developer or even just read the release notes, it will be apparent that they are working hard to make this product the best it can be. Thanks for making this! 🙏

UPDATE - after I’ve lost my entire gif library twice, I can no longer say this is an app I’d recommend. The first time was due to a confirmed bug in the app. The second time was because the app added a toggle for iCloud access a number of versions before it could actually back up to iCloud. I enabled access and thought it was backing up there, but it was not. When I asked the developer why they’d request access to a person’s iCloud and not use it for backups or anything else clearly stated, I got no response. So that’s both sketchy AND the app has failed me twice at the one thing it’s supposed to do: store a collection of gifs.

Original review
Great app - there was a real need for this sort of thing when it first came out and this filled the void. Not over cluttered with unneeded functionality but has all the basics you'd want (store gifs, share sheets, import/sync functionality).
