‘Boomerang’ The Hottest New App to Have in Your Phone


Instagram launched a new FREE app on October 22 called Boomerang. With this amazing new app you can shoot a one-second burst of five photos that are turned into a silent video that plays forwards and then reverses in a loop. In layman’s terms, Boomerang is your personal GIF maker which goes forward and rewind.

Today, we’re announcing Boomerang from Instagram, a new video app that lets you turn everyday moments into something fun and unexpected. Capture someone jumping off a diving board, defying physics as she flies back and forth through the air. Transform an ordinary selfie into a funny video. Get that exact moment your friend blows out his birthday candles, then watch them come back to life again and again. Press a button and the app does the rest. Boomerang takes a burst of photos and stitches them together into a high-quality mini video that plays forward and backward. Shoot in portrait or landscape. Share it on Instagram. Boomerang automatically saves to your camera roll. We’re inspired by the visual stories you tell on Instagram. With looping videos and Hyperlapse, you experiment with motion in new and exciting ways. Now, with Boomerang, we can’t wait to see what you’ll create next. To learn more about Boomerang from Instagram, check out help.instagram.com. Boomerang from Instagram is available today for iOS in Apple’s App Store and for Android in Google Play.
