"This is addictive.” - Tumblr Staff Blog
"The app, in a nutshell, turns anything you capture with your iPhone’s camera into a jiggling, wiggly, color-flashing GIF" - TechCrunch
"There is a new app that allows people to make selfie gifs. YES! You heard it correctly: Selfie Gifs!" -HelloGiggles
*Note: There is a known issue with iOS 7 sending via SMS. A fix is in the works. In the mean time the Stillies are still copied to your clipboard and can be pasted into an iMessage. Thank you!*
Create short (4 frames) photos with the push of a button for Messages (iMessage or SMS) and Tumblr!
Important: Stilly does not take videos. It makes moving photos. Examples at stillyapp.tumblr.com
All Stilly GIF files are saved to your camera roll and can be emailed or texted from the Photos app as well.
Thank you for using Stilly!
Not perfect but so much fun.
I had little optimism for this app based on the reviews but decided to give it a shot anyway. Stilly is AWESOME. People are complaining here that the app doesn't feature all sorts of weird editing tools, but this thing is designed for quick and dirty results and it completely delivers. There is a lot of room for growth in the file management and how it saves and sends the resulting gifs, but we have had nothing but fun with it. In fact people were begging me to try to get a good Stilly of them at a party I attended recently. I was the belle of the ball. You could be too.
Not quite a gif...
Unfortunately, I had hoped that it would be able to make a legitimate couple second long gif out of a short video that was recorded. Instead, it simply takes one image and the millisecond after that and throws to two pictures back and forth shakily! You can add the color option that adds the trippy colors aspect, but not really worth the money for how little it does. Hopefully they will soon add the option to create longer gifs!
Great app, that has so much potential!
This app does exactly what it says: makes super-short gifs with the push of a button.
I'm gonna have a lot of fun with this at the upcoming festivals!
Suggestions for improvement:
1. Create option to allow user to upload Gif to Tumblr at anytime (not just immediately after taking the Stilly).
2. Add more gif effects - additional colors maybe?
3. Add tutorial - this app doesn't just take still shots and shake them back and forth, it's best to take photos of moving objects. ( I had to figure that out on my own.)
I believe in supporting projects that have potential for growth so in my opinion this App is definitely worth the $2.00.
