Create Your Own GIFs With Piku Piku

Piku Piku logoPiku Piku is a recent addition to the long list of tools that can be used to create personalized GIFs. Using either the front- or rear-facing camera on your iOS camera, this app allows you to create either GIFs or videos that can be exported from the app or shared directly on a variety of social media sites, including Twitter, Facebook, and Tumblr.

The tool includes a number of nice features that set it apart in terms of GIF-creation tools. First, it is nice that the tool allows you to record either a GIF or a longer video if you would prefer. It is also helpful that the app integrates a timer so that you can set up GIFs and scenes while using the 3, 5, or 10 second timer element. In addition to these features, Piku Piku also includes filters that you can add to your GIF at the time of creation. In the free version of the app, there are only 5 color filters that can be used, but if you purchase additional filters there are others that go beyond simple color overlays. These filters add a fun and unique element to the final GIFs, though it is important to note that the resulting GIFs and videos cannot be edited to add or remove filters after they are completed. If you enjoy creating GIFs, Piku Piku is an app that will be worth your time.
