GIFwrapped - Find, Collect and Share Animated GIFs
By Daniel Farrelly
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
You know what? Words are overrated. GIFs are basically a higher form of conversing. Only problem is, sometimes you just don't have the right GIF for that one moment, and then what? You're stuck. Stuck like a pig in soup (is that a thing? that might not be a thing).
GIFwrapped is the app for lovers of GIFs and those looking to cultivate a personal collection of ready to go GIFs for sharing online or via iMessage. You can also search for new GIFs through Giphy, or import from your photo library.
• Designed for iOS7. Like pretty much all the apps these days. It's not really a feature, more of a statement.
• Use Dropbox to add new GIFs and sync your collection. Keep your GIFs on multiple devices and have a backup in the cloud. The digital cloud. No one keeps GIFs in real clouds anymore, they're just not secure.
• Share animated images via iMessage super fast. You can literally have a GIF in your message in like three taps. Four if you're feeling generous.
• Preview GIFs in standard or retina quality. It all depends on whether you like pixels or not.
• Find new GIFs using Giphy powered search! Just bang in a phrase like "cat" or "lumpy space princess" and be prepared for pure awesome to rain down on you from the heavens.
• Import GIFs from your Photo Library. I mean, if all else fails, you can always save images to your Photo library. But to give them the opportunity to fully shine, import them using the Photos tab, so you can be enthralled by their animations for hours!
Please note: I cannot respond to questions asked in reviews. Support requests and questions can be sent to email@example.com, or you can talk to @gifwrapped on Twitter. If all else fails, there are contact details within the About section of the app that should help you get in touch.
Or you can send a note attached to your trained chicken. Can you train chickens? I figure someone probably has.
What's New in Version 1.1.2
INTERNAL MEMO 840623.hg2g42
To: All Staff
Today we are releasing what Management has given the official description of "bug fix build". Its sole reason for existence is to fix issues that some of GIFwrapped's users have been experiencing, and very little else.
The details for this release are as follows:
Items from the Photos section can, once again, be shared without hesitation. Previously, the behaviour was such that an error was consistently thrown, causing a modicum of panic and mayhem, the cause of which has now been resolved. The damage caused by this issue is believed to be extensive; as such Management offer their sincere apologies for those who lost family and/or friends to this incident.
Several weeks ago, the search results provider momentarily ceased to transmit the number of results the query was returning, which was not something we were prepared to deal with. Although this was quickly resolved on their end (seemingly within a matter of hours), measures have been taken to ensure that the people of Earth are protected from future incidents like this.
In instances where a search query is empty, images will now be allocated the generic "image.gif" as their name for the purposes of display, and saving to the Library. Do not be alarmed at this seemingly inhumane treatment of search results; Management would like to reiterate that company policy states that search results are not self aware.
For maximum synergy with Dropbox and other computing systems, GIFwrapped should no longer allow you to add files with names that vary only in alphabetical case, i.e. if you have an image named "iMagE.Gif" in your library, you will not be able to add an item named the more sensible "image.gif". There may still be issues caused by the underlying problem, but please be aware that Management are synchronising their efforts to ensure this matter is dealt with swiftly.
The Settings screen was acting in a nefarious manner if you tried to open an Image from outside the app while it was open. Management do not take this sort of activity lightly, and the matter has been resolved privately. If future, should you wish to open an Image in GIFwrapped using a share sheet, you should be presented with a preview, rather than having the Settings screen block the preview from loading correctly.
It was discovered that the Search tab was errantly attempting to display the message intended for the empty screen over search results when tapping in the search bar at the top of the screen. After performing a round of rigorous behavioural realignment therapy, this issue should not present itself again at this time.
To ensure a continued state of cooperation, Management has authorised the two new additions to the GIFwrapped URL scheme. The details for these will be added to the FAQs page for the URL scheme, accessible from http://gifwrapped.co/faq.
Despite the continued compatibility of this release with iOS 7, the next major release will no longer support any version lower than iOS 8. Please ensure that, for continued compatibility, you are using the latest iOS version available from Apple.
Thank you for your continued service with GIFwrapped. Your support is valued and appreciated by Management. Should you desire to express your feelings for GIFwrapped, you may leave an honest review on iTunes, or get in touch via @gifwrapped on Twitter. Please note that Management does not endorse emotional responses and these will be dealt with according to the terms of your contract.
This is one of nicest apps out there when you need a quick .gif animation to liven up a conversation. I wish the developers made it easier to save files onto the camera roll. Nonetheless, a good .gif is worth a million words and finding them is handy with this app.
Whereas I loved this app before, this update has made it entirely glitchy. Constant crashing, duplicating saved, duplicating after renaming, or it just won't save the new title at all, and the list goes on. Still use it, but incredibly buggy.
Still doesn't work/super slow. Gifs don't work
