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.

Capture your favorite moments to relive over and over—backwards and forwards—with this fun, easy-to-use video app. Boomerang shoots short movies that play in a loop, revealing what you recorded and then reversing the action for quirky moving snapshots you’ll love showing off. With one-tap controls and many ways to share with friends, it’s a cool way to remix your memories.

The Amazingness of Boomerang

Boomerang is an amazing app designed to share exciting experiences in 2 seconds! Boomerang also allows young and older persons to show a cute and cool clip. It also is an amazing way to do some special effects. Although it was mainly meant for Instagram, Boomerang has become an app to take short videos you can keep in your camera roll or any other place in a phone. Boomerang as an app is overall extremely helpful and exhilarating and I cannot wait until my next opportunity to use it!

It's okay

I love using boomerang for a lot of cute things on my instagram and just for fun! Boomerang is a creative idea that classes up your insta! The reason I don't like it and rated it 2 stars is because the editors need to create a countdown timer! Some people don't have a person with them to take a picture and it's easy putting it on a wall. They should also allow filters like on snapchat/musically and let the color modify like black and white also like musically and Snapchat. I love boomerang but if anyone reads this I hope this catches the editors attention so they change it. I hope you like this review and app! It's still an amazing app
