This New Instagram App Lets Creators Make Endlessly Looping GIFs

Even Instagram has gone crazy for GIFs. Today, the Facebook-owned company launched Boomerang, an iPhone and Android app that lets users make mini-social videos that endlessly loop. As part of the photo-sharing app’s larger video push, Boomerang makes it possible to create videos that play forward and backward in either portrait or landscape mode that can then be shared on Instagram.
