Burst lets you turn your photo bursts into looping videos and animated GIFs! 
You can capture a burst in the Camera app by quickly dragging the shutter button to the left on the iPhone 11, or by pressing and holding the shutter button on all other iPhones. Once you've captured a burst, launch the Burst app to see your creation play back in real time, then tap "Video" or "GIF" to make a video or GIF!

For ME, Only using the burst mode can you get that 1, amazing shot out of hundreds.. for example, trying to make newly born granddaughter laugh, out of 400+ burst.. there was only 1 perfect picture where she not only smiled, but she opened her eyes which is priceless..

Not wanting to delete all the other pictures or spend the time deciding which ones I want to keep, I can keep them all in a video..

2 ideas though would be nice..

1) having hundreds of bursts, it’s a pain having to click on video & then click on the button to STAY HERE.. if a user doesn’t want to stay there, I’m sure they know how to get out of the app.. for me clicking STAY HERE 500 times is a pain & waste of time..

2) Speaking of converting all ones burst to videos.. it would be GREAT to set the app in a mode where it CONVERTS ALL BURTS INTO A VIDEO instead of clicking 3 buttons each time then sliding over to do the same over & over again..

Still.. Great App! Saved me hours if not days going through them all.. I’ll be using the app for life as I create bursts..
thank you

This has been really fun to play with. It works best in burst photos with many shots not just a handful (which makes total sense). Some of my very very old burst mode photos don’t seem to work, but that is probably an issue with old burst photos not the app.

Simple and Powerful

Great app to convert burst captures to animated GIF and video. Let’s you see the file size before you decide to save the animation!
