Great way to create or edit a GIF

When I need a quick GIF, this app is my goto. Loved version 2, and version 3 is even more polished.

Easy, Pretty Good

Works well, I just wish I could import a GIF so I could add something to it.

over all good, but

1 thing is missing.

you can’t preview file size unless you render it. which takes time.
this is really fraustrating, because you have to keep guessing the final file size.

I don’t get it why they didn’t put this option in it.
