    Hi, there are 2 reasons why I unfortunately have to decline this feature. Animated GIFs, by definition, have a reduced color palette. (A maximum of 256 colors). This means:

    1) The “quality” of the original image is not achievable.

    2) Creating a GIF with the dimensions of the original image would make the GIF file size insanely large.

    Thanks anyway for the suggestion!

  3. Allow uploading to iFunny

    Ifunny is an amazing, funny app where you can upload GIFs, photos, or videos. This would make sense because I would be able to upload GIFs strait through this amazing app

  4. Optionally add password/TouchID when entering Giffer

    Would be nice to have this feature since its one of the best app there is.
    Privacy would be nice.

  5. Longer Gifs w/audio or music you've made yourself. integrate with soundcloud.

    Being able to make (granted lower res) longer gifs from photo bursts, etc. with the added ability to add your personal © music/sound design with integration and sharing to #soundcloud. This gives you a one-app way to create multi or intermedia.

    Thank you for the suggestion, I appreciate it!

    Unfortunately though, I feel that it reaches outside the scope of Giffer’s primary focus: creating animated GIFs. Animated GIFs do not support sound. Soundcloud is an audio/music sharing service that (correct me if I’m wrong) I don’t believe supports animated GIF or video playback. Longer GIF support has been suggested by others, if you’d like to vote for that please do so here: http://giffer.uservoice.com/forums/152157-support-and-feature-requests/suggestions/5487121-allow-for-even-more-frames-longer-gifs

    Thanks again!

    Thanks for the suggestion! The time limit is due to device memory and disk space constraints and isn’t really directly related to video import. In the future if longer GIFs are possible (even longer than Giffer Pro) the video import time limit will increase automatically. Thanks again!

  8. resizing gifs for tumblr

    tumblr only accepts 1mb gifs and some are over that limit and you can't post them onto tumblr so it should automatically resize to fit the limit

    The problem is, this would add a significant amount of resources and processing time to the share process: compile GIF, is it under 1mb? no? re-compile GIF is it under 1mb yet?? no? recompile GIF therefore I think I am in favor of the current workflow: upload to giffer.co and share to tumblr as an “external image.” Of course you could always pester tumblr to increase their GIF file size limit too. :)

  9. Advanced password

    When entering the decoy password (4digits) it opens a secondary main page with only samples (as if it would be with a recently downloaded app) with a smart feature on taking a picture, time it was unlocked, and map location for security breach purposes.

    This sounds like a whole different kind of app, and not the direction I’d like to take Giffer in. But thanks anyway for the suggestion, I really do appreciate it!

    Unfortunately this requires jailbreaking your device. You can still use GIFs made with Giffer as your wallpaper though!

  13. Be able to save gifs as background wallpapers.

    Wouldnt it be awesome if you made or found a really cool gif and was able to watch it in your lock screen?

    Thanks for the suggestion!

    Google Plus currently has no API for posting/writing (it has history, which is somewhat ghetto.) and the PIcasa APIs are deprecated. :(

  16. Add Flickr sharing

    I wanna be able to share with my Flickr peeps. Thanks!

    It turns out posting animated GIFs on flickr is way convoluted. 1) You have to be a pro user, 2) You have to post a GIF, flickr flattens it, then you post a comment with an image link to the original GIF you just posted. (The original sized image isn’t flattened). Because of the flickr pro requirement it doesn’t really seem worthwhile at this point. But if a ton of people request it I’ll give it a shot!

  17. Add a separate voice feature

    So we can narrate the movies
