I suggest you ...

Support burst mode photos

I took 16 pictures in the Camera app using the burst feature where I held down the shutter button. However Giffer Pro only sees one picture.

    I’m pleased to announce that importing burst photos into your gif will finally be possible in Giffer, with version 3.5. The next version should be available in about a week, as soon as Apple approves it.

    Thanks and happy giffing!

        @1957Goldtop Sorry, my reply was a bit tongue-in-cheek as it were. I do hear your point, which is indeed quite valid. Thanks for the feedback!

        If you want to be ignorant, sure you can think that... Hopefully you understood the point. Yes, people are voting on these other requests because they think "hey, yeah... that sounds good" just like people who said "yeah, I want a physical keyboard" prior to the iPhone. None of them thought to ask for a touch screen and even more said "oh, I hate touch screens, I want a physical keyboard". And again, we all know how the physical keyboard fared in history of the mobile phone. Apple has proven on a large scale people don't necessarily know what they really want.

        My obvious point was, people aren't thinking about how much easier your app would be if you could just use a burst mode capture to create your gifs (just like I'm doing now with the app Burstio). And just like the touch screen keyboard of the iPhone, if they actually gave it a try with burst photos they would think "why would I want to do it any other way?"

        Furthermore, there is no better example of people asking for useless features and it getting a lot of votes is the request for exporting to Instagram. Instagram doesn't even support animated gifs! So, are you suggesting Instagram export is a more important feature than supporting burst photos just because it's voted higher? You may not want to support burst mode for some reason, but clearly as an intelligent person you surely see that Instagram support should be at the bottom of the list despite it's vote count (until it supports animated gifs, which I wish they would but probably won't for quite some time)

        @1957Goldtop So should I not equate your suggestion as being something you really want?

      • 1957Goldtop1957Goldtop commented  · 

        I'm pretty sure if people realized how much easier the app would be if it just imported burst mode photos it would be the number one requested feature by far. Don't equate what people are asking for as being what people really want. Nobody was asking Apple for a keyboard-less phone and, well, we know how that turned out.

        @1957Goldtop Apple's API that lets us work with burst images just became available with the release of iOS 8. Plus there are lots of other features currently taking precedence. As you can see by the vote count, this feature just isn't that popular. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

        How is this not top of the list of new features for the next update? So obvious.
