Boomerang from Instagram makes everyday moments fun and unexpected. Create captivating mini videos that loop back and forth, then share them with your friends.

Find something (or someone!) that's moving, or create a video selfie by switching to the front-facing camera. There’s just one button. Tap it once and Boomerang does the rest: shoots a burst of 10 photos and turns them into a delightful mini video. Share it on Facebook and Instagram right from the app, or save your video to your camera roll to share later.


* Take mini videos of your life and yourself using the front and back facing camera.
* Download and start capturing immediately. No sign up or account required.
* There's just one button! The app takes 10 photos and stitches them together, speeds up the video and smooths out any bumps, then loops it back and forth.
* Share your videos on Instagram and Facebook right from the app, or share them later from your camera roll.

Missing basic feature

Some Doofus

I was genuinely shocked this app did not provide the ability to create looped gifs from the camera roll! That is the only reason I downloaded this app. Upon seeing such a basic and expected feature completely missing I deleted the app straight away. I don’t want to have to go through the fuss of using a completely separate app when I want to loop my videos. Usually the thought to loop a video doesn’t come until later, and by then I will be too late. Perhaps I took the video on another app like Snapchat and wanted to create this effect, but again, I would be unable to because of the lack of camera roll compatibility.
If you added this feature there would be no need to add a timer either; another feature that is missing but under high demand.
I’m very surprised and disappointed that you would bother to make an app without such a basic feature.

It’s amazing


You can take a quick vid and it will make it then actually do it again and again the thing it needs to work on is that we should be able to talk on it and do the cool vid all together so we can hear our voice and see what we did plz make improvements by Tayla🤞🏻❤️

Amazing 👌🏾

It's a really good fun app to play with but, I wish there was a timer when you just want to record by yourself or when you're getting ready for the video. Besides that it's really good and I'm glad I downloaded it.
