Giffer - The Animated GIF App
By Taber Buhl
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Animate your life.
A New & Noteworthy app, Giffer was designed from the ground up for making rad animated GIFs quickly and easily, whenever you want and wherever you go.
The best part about Giffer is its powerful simplicity. Advanced features are there when you need them, yet unobtrusive enough to let you create a simple GIF in just a few taps.
Create virtually any kind of GIF: cinemagraphs, jitter or wiggle GIFs, stop motion, time lapse, endless looping GIFs, reverse GIFs, text overlay GIFs, reaction GIFs, cat GIFs, dog GIFs, you name it. Of course you can easily share them to tumblr, twitter, facebook, email, or iMessage/SMS.

Giffer makes real GIFs, not lame video knockoffs pretending to be GIFs. Animated GIFs rule because you don't need to download any special plugins to view them. You can paste them directly into iMessage/SMS messages or post 'em to your blog just like a regular photo, without any cross-browser worries or extra effort.

What's New in Version 2.9
· Fixed Twitter sharing
480 x 480 Resolution, Square Only?
I purchased this app and the pro upgrade and although I love it, I am disappointed at the limited output options, even at the "large" size, which is only 480 pixels wide. Also, it would be nice to have portrait and landscape aspect ratios, not just cropped square ones. Note that you cannot edit previously made GIFs (although you can if you import them into other apps). At this point the developers don't seem to be planning to address these limitations.
Good, except for one big issue
I'm a Tumblr user. This app doesn't make Image type posts to Tumblr, but rather Link type posts, with your GIF hosted on giffer's servers. This gives them the power to censor your GIFs if they don't approve of the content. I'm against censorship in any form, and I find this behavior underhanded and reprehensible. Sadly, this is the best gif app out there, but I worked around the censorship by copying the GIFs in question and emailing them to myself, then posting them to Tumblr from a PC via a browser.
Hope this helps others!
Totally worth it
Giffer's developer understands user experience, a simple interface but with more features behind the scenes. Best gif app I've found.
Regarding another reviewer's complaint of censorship:
1) Giffer's owner has a right to protect himself and younger users.
2) You can, duhh, export your gif to apple's photos app then upload to anywhere, including your precious tumblr.
