**WARNING** You can only take Live Photos on the iPhone 6s/s+ and newer!

With Splitter: for Live Photos, you can do more with your iPhone's live photos, like separate them into individual photos, or share them as videos or .GIFs on social media.

Maybe you've captured the cutest thing... except it's a half second before the still photo associated with the live photo. How do you save it? Print it? Or send it to friends who can't view Live Photos?

Splitter: for Live Photos is the answer. With this app you can flip through the still frames that make up your Live Photo, and pull out exactly what you want to save. Think of it like turning your live photos into photo bursts. Now you turn any of the moments captured with your iPhone's Live Photos into beautiful stills.

Live Photos are also great as short videos. Maybe you want to share the short video you captured to Vine, YouTube, or other social media. Splitter: for Live Photos will let you do that too!

Splitter: for Live Photos can also turn your Live Photos into .GIF files to share.

Youre iPhone's live photos are awesome, but this app adds the capabilities you need to make them even better!

Frequently Asked Questions:

Question: I can't load any photos!

Answer: WhenSplitter: for Live Photos first loads it asks for access to your photos. If it accidentally gets set to "no" then we can't load photos. Here's how to fix it:

1.) Open the Settings app
2.) Choose Privacy
3.) Choose Photos
4.) Find "Live Photos +" and make sure the switch is GREEN.

Question: How can I split Live Photos shared to me on a photo stream?

Answer: First save the image to your phone/camera roll. Then open it in Live Photos Plus.

Question: How can I share my split images to Instagram?

Answer: You cant share directly from software to Instagram. You can split the photo, save it to your camera roll, and then open those images from the Instagram app.

Question: I saved my live photo as a .GIF but it's not animated in my photo stream (or camera roll)!

Answer: The default Photos app on iPhone does not display .GIF files as animations even if they are animated. If you share the .GIF in a message or e-mail (which does display them correctly) you will see that it is in fact animated.

I use this all the time

I can't believe there isn't a function built in to the camera / photo app that does this already, so I'm glad this one exists. I use it all the time, it's basic but does what it says. When I first used it I thought it didn't work, but I just had to wait a second for the photo to split. I do wish there were a faster way to scroll through (or go straight to the end of) the series of split pictures.

Exactly what I wanted

Awesome! Been wanting to save some of my live videos with the recorded sound, and previous to this could only export gifs, then convert them to video, and in the end they wouldn't have any sound. Now I can do that in one quick step and more! I can choose individual frames from the live photo. I can make a gif. It's really a one stop shop for all things live photo that you wish were already built in capabilities on your iPhone. But since they're not, we finally have the app I'd been hoping for to do those things since live photo became a thing. Thanks, devs! Keep up the good work.

Used to work great

No longer works with my iPhone 10 with the latest update. It doesn’t recognize that I have Live Photos and crashes after leaving that screen.

Was a great app before this.
