Instagram’s Newest App is the Easiest Way to (Sort Of) Make Gifs

Making gifs (or as Instagram prefers to call them, “mini videos”) of you and your friends to post on IG just got easier. Yesterday, Insta launched its newest app: Boomerang.

Obviously, we downloaded it to our phones immediately because who can resist turning your selfies into hilariously cute one-second videos or recording your crush walking down the hall toward you, so you can swoon on repeat? (We can’t.) Our first take took a few tries because the window of time you have to capture movement is legit only one second, but we’re hooked!

Download Boomerang to your iPhone or Android and step up your Insta-game. And now, if you’ll excuse us, we’ve got some bomb (basically) gifs to make!
