Echograph — Create Cinemagraph Animated GIFs (Version: 1.1)

Reviewed by Matthew Chan on Feb 15th 2013

Quick Rating: 8.5 out of 10

What is it?
► This creative editor turns a short video into an animated photography (animated GIF).

► Innovative way to create animated photo (GIF) – pick a short video and paint the part you want it to animate. The last step is choosing your freeze frame. The end result is an interesting still picture with a moving area.
► It is able to import HD video from other sources such as HD camcorder. That is the best source for creating animated photo because of the HD quality video.
► Easy to create interesting animated photo once you know how (see Con).

► No in-app tutorial on iPhone – without a tutorial, I have to fail a few times before I know how to use it. Even with the tutorial on iPad, the user interface does not give users enough information on which step they are on. I suggest go to the developer’s web site to watch the tutorial videos if you have trouble using this app.
► Not able to save the result on Camera Roll since it does not support animated GIF.

In-App Ad:
► None
