There has always been a craze for animated GIF. I mean who would not love one? That’s why the Giphy has put in so much effort to create on your mobile device your personalised GIFs. Giphy the search engine for all the GIF things released a new iOs app and named it Giphy Cam. This Giphy Cam app allows the users of the app to create some of their own GIFs. These GIFs can there be sent and shared on social media by the creators.


This creation comes in stand after Giphy wanted to find a solution to the problem of always searching for GIFs online. Through this Giphy Cam now, GIFs can be made easily and shared with messaging applications and other communication platforms. It further gives the unique ability to create some own funky GIFs and allow users to share their moments.
