Yahoo has updated its Yahoo Sports app with a new feature called Loops, which allows users to create GIFs from footage from any of the four major sports leagues in America (the NFL, NHL, MLB and NBA).
Loops provide a new way for sports fans to easily capture, transform and share their favorite sports moments, right away or later on. Think of Loop as an animated GIF, with captions, effects and comments added to memorable moments in every game.
Users first scrub through footage from entire games from the major four sports leagues, choosing any point in any game to "loop". Once users choose a moment, they can add text or effects to their "loop". Finally, they can upload it to the Yahoo Sports app and share it via Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr or send a link to their Loop via email or Messages.
Along with Loops, Yahoo Sports was also updated with a redesign for iOS 7, improved scoring indication for football games, new team and player pages, and various bug fixes.
