We're really excited to present GifBoom v5.0!
A couple months ago we decided to update GifBoom for iOS 7. Our goal is to bring back gifboom to its original mission: help you express yourself in motion. We'd like it to be simple, beautiful and standing behind your creativity.
After many hours of work, we're proud to introduce the new gifboom with a modern, streamlined interface with some of the most powerful features you've ever seen in mobile applications.
First we made our camera interface much easier to use and more powerful. It includes Stop Motion mode, Burst mode,
Auto mode and Timer mode. Both Auto and Timer mode can record your sound with video, whereas Stop Motion and Burst will
take single or continuous shots without sound and you can adjust speed and direction just like before.
We have improved our Filters to include a few incredible vintage filters. Try them today to see it in action!
We're proud to introduce our biggest secret in editing: Segments. Now you can edit each individual frame, or segment, within app. Add, reorder, split, or slow down each segment to mix different videos/photos/gifs into one clip. It's like the coolest video DJ app to open up your creativity! To add a little fun, we also included drawing on your clips.
Another big update is we are replacing Channels with Groups. Similar to Channels, Groups are helping you discover and find similar-interest people and content. What is different is now you can create your own groups, add other users as administrators. You can feature gifs in your groups, make private groups so only users you approve can post or view the group.
There are many other small and big updates, while we strive to keep it similar to our previous interfaces. Of course, we have revamped our UI to have iOS 7 look and feel.
Special thanks to a group of users who have volunteered to test and gave feedbacks to us during the last couple weeks. GifBoom will never be what it is without helps from user like you.
As with any major upgrades of products, there'll be slight learnings for existing users to adjust to our new features and interfaces. We're here to help and listen. Please let us know if you have any questions or feedbacks. Send them to email@example.com
- Fixed crashes on some devices when importing from video
- Fixed crashes when importing from Web
- Fixed crashes on some devices when viewing Gallery
We're going to update design for iOS 7 soon. Thank you for the feedbacks!
iOS 7 compatibility fix
- Fixed crashing in importing videos.
- On older devices due to hardware constraints, GIF created with the app has a smaller size. To work around this
issue, now when you save the GIF to camera roll, we will also save a copy of the GIF in video format. The video has a
much bigger size. You may export the video to GIF in many other programs (again, not suggested for conversion on the
same device due to the hardware constraints).
- Bug fixes
- Improved GIF quality when saving to camera roll
- Now you can add GIFs directly from camera to Collage
- Some bug fixes
- Fixed messaging bar disappearing after sending a message
- Fixed the bug not being able to send GIF in messaging
- Fixed repeating GIFs in profile page.
- After switching between grid and list view, your preferences will be saved so it will keep the same view next time.
We heard your feedbacks. Thank you!
This update includes some critical fixes:
- Fixed the profile pic missing issue when updated
- Only show GIFs on Feed. You can select Q&A feed if desired. We'll remember your settings next time.
- Support disable Anonymous asks. If disabled, all questions will be appended with asker's username so you know who asked.
- Fixed Audio from speaker too quiet issue
- You can now comment on Q&As
- Added Sharing GIFs to Tumblr
- Fixed a few critical crashes
We're so grateful of our users! We take your feedbacks seriously and work hard at improving GifBoom, as your expression and communication community.
Included in this update:
- Q&A: now you can ask questions to other users anonymously and view their answers on their profile! Go to their profile and tap the question button to view and ask immediately. You can also go to your own profile, check your question queue, and ask up to 25 people at the same time! Q&As will show up on your feed so you will not miss any interesting answers. Go ahead and ask someone now!
- Dropbox integration: Have you ever experienced the dilemma that you have to uninstall GifBoom but don't want to lose GIFs in your gallery? Now we have a solution using a cloud storage service called Dropbox (If you haven't heard of them, sign it up for free because it is so good and you can do it from gifboom app!). Go to your gallery, click the "Link to Dropbox" button, sign up or login to your account, then leave as is. It may take a few minutes to fully sync your gallery to Dropbox and you are free to do whatever you want. Once it's done, your gifs are safe! You can delete gifboom app and install a new version and the gallery will be automatically restored. It is like magic! If you ever have an issue with syncing, just make sure you have a good connection and you have enough storage on your device and Dropbox, and reopen GifBoom and it should work! If you have a couple of devices, they can share the same gallery if using the same Dropbox account, or you can assign a different account for each device. All gifs in the same account will be backed up and restored.
- Introduce new Explore view and Trending tags! We have been using it for the last few days and it is so cool to view what is trending. Also, we made a stream view for popular, which you can change to grid view if you prefer.
- You can now filter news by types of notifications. No longer need to scroll through millions of notifications to find out who wants to follow you.
- We've also replaced all refresh buttons to pull down to refresh. It is relieving to get rid of one more button!
- We also allow you to play background music when opening GifBoom app now. Only stops it when it's needed, i.e. recording your voice or playing sounds in the app.
- Fixed twitter login. Use iOS integrated twitter account so it is more convenient. You may need to sign in again if you signed in through twitter in previous version and signed out.
- Smarter and better control on using storage space on your device. Remember to use "Clear Cache" option if you are running out of space, but in general the app will control the space usage automatically.
- Fixed some crashing bugs and annoying issues. Now it is more stable than ever.
Don't forget to email us your feedback at firstname.lastname@example.org or use the feedback button. We are keep listening to you!
* Post GIFs from Clipboard and Web Search.
* Support camera focus. Just tap camera screen to focus on area of interest

* Fixed a bug where GIF speed is slowed down when using Looping mode.
* Other bug fixes.
* Also, if you're posting to tumblr, please be aware that tumblr does not allow uploading big gifs. So if you see a static image on tumblr after sharing, please try reducing number of frames. Or ask Tumblr to give us a bigger limit!

love reading them.

GifBoom 3.0 Is Here! Faster, Prettier and Better. If you liked GifBoom, you'll love it now! We have revamped our Look and Feel, added tons of new features and made it smaller and faster.
★ New look & feel
We have improved our graphics to a streamlined, modern look, with the same ease of use you have experienced before so you will not feel strange but will feel more pleased to use GifBoom.
★ Import GIFs
Do you have some GIFs saved on your computer or your website? For the first time you are able to import them directly into GifBoom! Simply send/save/sync them to your Camera Roll and we will do the rest.
★ Add Text to Your GIFs
Now you can add free text to your GIFs. You can choose different types of fonts, sizes, colors and you can scale, rotate and move them as freely as you want. It's simple but powerful.
★ Real time Filters & Frames
We completely revamped our filters and frames. Finally you have some best effects available to pimp up your GIFs. Better than that, all these filters are real time so you don't have to wait to see how they look.
★ Flip your GIFs
Besides rotate left and right, we added flipping as well so you can make sure your GIFs look right.
★ See who liked your GIFs
A long time asked feature, we finally enable you to see all likers for your GIFs. Not only that, we also automatically show the first five likers on a GIF. Think about that as a special award to your most enthusiastic fans. We hope the feature is worth the wait but you can tell us if it is or not.
★ See the original GIF on reboomed GIFs
Have you ever wanted to see what the original GIF is when you see a reboomed GIF in your feed? Now when you view the reboomed gif, there is a small snippet from the original GIF and you can tap the original author's name or see exactly how many likes/comments the original has got. Tapping on that you will be able to view the original as well. Talk about giving the original creator some credit he/she deserves!
★ See more than 100 followers/followings etc.
Before you can only see up to 100 followers/followings. Now we have infinite scroll so you can take a look at them all. Never miss one person behind!
★ Onion Skins
We improved our onion skins in the Manual mode. It's more precise than ever.
★ Edit Username
Lots of users wanted to change their username but had to email us. It took a couple of hours but admittedly a long process in GifBoom. So we made it available that you can change it yourself in "Edit Profile" section.
★ New Icon
Last but not least, we gave our icon a slight artistic touch. We hope you enjoy it as much as the app itself!
We also made the app much faster and snappier than before. More than that, your GIFs will automatically be saved to GIF Gallery before publishing so you can always view them later on your phone.
Thank you for your awesome support. We'll unleash even more exciting things soon.
