Instagram has just launched Boomerang, an application allowing you to create imitation GIFs from a burst of photos.
GIFs are too complicated to make and especially to share on Instagram? Never mind, there is now an application to make life easier for users: Boomerang. Presented a few hours ago on the Instagram blog, Boomerang is not strictly speaking a GIF creation application. Very simple, it offers, by pressing the single button that makes up its interface, to take a burst of 10 photos (in portrait or landscape mode, and with both the front and back sensor) in order to make a very short video (in .mp4 format).

This video will then "loop" by playing the sequence in one direction then in the other. Short videos that lend themselves perfectly to the game of grimaces, "reaction-faces" or animals with strange behavior. Once the video has been created, it is possible to share it in one click on Facebook, Instagram or even on a messaging application.
Boomerang is free to download, contains no advertising or in-app purchases and above all has the good taste of not asking to log into any account before using it.
