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.

Impossibe to find settings menu


I love this app - really good fun and such a simple idea. But why, oh why, oh why, for the love of happiness is the settings menu only accessible by tapping the screen with FOUR fingers, FOUR times. It's insane. And almost impossible to get right. So many reviews on here requesting the option to speed up or slow down the action - which you can do, if you can find the menu, which clearly no-one has! What's wrong with a little hamburger or cog icon top left or something? Please change this.

Gif? And insane way to get access to settings?


Why is it saving as a .Mov only, when this type of animation is well suited to gif (at decreased resolution). I wasted ages thinking this was creating gifs and saving them as cycling animations.
Finding the settings menu was insane (four taps with four fingers simultaneously).
I know it's a free app. But I would pay if it would be bit more comprehensive in its capabilities and output. As it stands, I feel It's an app that is kind of misunderstood and some people think it's actually making gifs, which is why I started using it..

Please please please!!!!!!!!! Let us edit videos we already have!!!!! I have little control over what I produce with the app and usually miss quite iconic shots that I could turn into a boomerang myself on the computer. But this would take ages and I'd have a simple app which would be beautiful if it would let you edit already produced videos. Pleaseeeee take everyone's pleas into account and make this happen. Or at least someone else make a app that does it because. I'd definitely download it
