The new iPhone 6s and 6s Plus allow users to create Live Photos, which capture an additional 3 seconds of video around a still image and play it back when a user 3D Touches the photo. Priime today launched a new app called Live GIF, letting users easily turn their Live Photos into GIFs that are viewable on all devices and the web.
When launched, the app automatically detects whether your phone has Live Photos and lists them in a grid. The user simply has to tap the Live Photo they want to turn into a GIF and the app does the rest, converting it to a shareable GIF. That GIF or a video taken from the Live Photo can then be saved to the Camera Roll, sent in a message or email, or uploaded to social networks.
While the app is fairly limited in use and sports a banner on the bottom prompting users to edit their photos in the freemium Priime photo editing app, Live GIF is the first app to enable users to convert their Live Photos to GIFs, allowing them to be shared on most social networks.
