BOOMERANG FROM INSTAGRAM
MAKE VIDEOS THAT GO ROUND AND ROUND
With Vine from Twitter now officially deader than a dead parrot, something needed to move into the space for creating shareable looping videos for social media, and Boomerang has stepped up to the plate, or, er, perch, nicely. Boomerang is almost celebratory in its lack of features, which makes it easy to use. It takes ten photos in quick succession, and turns them into an animated movie. You can save them or post them, and that’s about it! It uses Instagram for sharing your videos, obviously.
The videos loop endlessly, so if you can manage to snap something like the exact moment your toddler is hilariously knocked over by your cat, you’ll be perfectly poised to go viral. Alternatively, if you’ve got an event to promote, it’s an easy way of adding a bit of fun video to your social-media post, and might attract you a few more followers.
