Live Photos captured with the new iPhone 6s and 6s Plus are terrific — except when you share them with someone who doesn’t have an iPhone or supported Apple device. In which case, they’re just still images. But thanks to a new app called Live GIF, you can now turn Live Photos into GIFs anyone can enjoy.
When you first open Live GIF, the app shows all the Live Photos you’ve captured on your iPhone 6s in a grid, making them all easy to find. Turning one of them into a GIF is then as simple as tapping the Live Photo you wish to use, then choosing the “Share as GIF” option.
The GIF created can then be shared directly from within the Live GIF app via iMessage or email, saved to your camera roll, or uploaded directly to social networks. Live GIF can also turn Live Photos into videos if you prefer.
Live GIF is a simple app, but it’s an incredibly useful one, and it does its job wonderfully. If you’ve been wanting to turn Live Photos into easily sharable GIFs, then this is the app you’ve been waiting for. You can download it now via the link below for $1.99.
