Everyday billions of GIFs are sent across the globe. The use of GIF’s is growing, because GIFs allow users to express their personality beyond simple words or emojis, but what if you could put yourself in a GIF? Giftr is here to give you the freedom to create GIFs from your own memories, which brings you into your GIF’s, adding a personal dimension to the format.
Launching today, Giftr will be equipped with support for 34 languages, 7 million filters and 27 editing tools with more to come. The foundation for creating Giftr was to rediscover, explore and browse your old memories in a new way. Utilising new technology, such as GIPHY’s SDK so users can layer GIPHY Stickers onto their own GIFs, Giftr will be seamlessly fast and offers a completely new experience for editing your memories.
Giftr comes from Philippe Levieux, the same person who brought you Infltr. Infltr is the global hit application that gave you an infinite amount of filters and has become the most powerful editor for all media types. With 800k monthly active users and at least 200k stories sent to Snapchat daily. Snapchat has allowed integration for Giftr and here is what they had to say,
“Creative Kit allows Snapchatters to bring their favorite parts of other apps into the conversation with their best friends on Snapchat. When the Infltr team integrated Creative Kit to allow sharing of their creations on Snapchat, we were thrilled to see their community really embrace the feature, using it 200,000 times a day on average and to-date totaling over 40M Snapchat shares,” said Alston Cheek, Director, Platform Partnerships at Snap Inc. “We’re excited to bring Creative Kit to their new app, Giftr, and can’t wait to see how the community uses it to talk about their favorite GIFs with their friends on Snapchat.”
Giftr is an app that keeps surprising. Using a special AR feature that lets you interact with a globe. All your memories are positioned where you took them, making the connection between the memory and the place so much stronger. GIFs are perfect for sharing and Giftr is working with GIPHY to help you share your creativity.
“Whether you’re sending a GIF of your favorite TV show or layering a GIPHY Sticker onto your photo, GIFs in any form have the capacity to make everyday conversations more entertaining,” said Lydia Getachew, Business Development Manager at GIPHY. “This is why we’re encouraged to see how our SDK partners, like Giftr, are leveraging GIPHY’s technology to bring more creativity and — in Giftr’s case — personalization to people’s lives and favorite memories.” – GIPHY
Your privacy is important to Giftr and it does everything locally on your phone, making it perfect for offline use as well. Once you’re back online you can share your memories through your favorite platforms. Starting the decade off with a powerful tool that lets you recapture your memories and provides a new way to create them.
“We designed the algorithm to bring back memories in the most joyful way. There is something therapeutic about opening Giftr and discovering golden moments that are animated on your screen.” – Phillippe Levieux, Giftr creator.
