Cinemagram Finally Arrives for Android, Think “GIFs on Steroids”


After teasing the app for some time, Cinemagram is finally available for Android. For those not in the know, think of this application as Vine, the video/GIF-sharing app on iOS. You record four seconds of video, apply an effect and then let it rip. The video then either rewinds itself back and forth or repeats itself from the beginning. The app is laid out like Instagram, but instead of still shots, you see GIF-like posts from friends and people you follow. 

Making a “Cine” isn’t hard at all. Simply point at what you want to shoot, hold down the record button for as long as you choose (up to four seconds), apply a video filter (or don’t), and then publish. Before I make any real judgment, I will have to try the app out, but so far it isn’t bad at all.

Go check it out and have some fun.

    Worth a try at least. I’m not huge on taking videos.

    I’m guessing most Google+ users are probably Android,and the fact that Google+ recently allowed you to add a GiF for a profile picture, I can see the Cinemagram app taking off rather quickly on Android.

    Well or Facebook just needs to add the ability to make/post animated GIFs and basically Vine and this go ::poof:: since there’s hardly room for other social networks built around single features anymore

    Instagram just needs to add this feature, problem solved.

    Of all my Facebook and Twitter friends, a whopping 8 had Cinemagram accounts, and the most recent activity was 80 days ago. Sad. I really wanted to get on board with this.

  • Not sure if it’s just me but camera quality is miserable through the app on my Note 2 and S3

    I think Disqus needs to be more Animated Gif Friendly…. like the verge comments section.

      How you figure? Because of Vine?

      • I second that question….

          Just a troll and nothing more.

    • Yeah, wth are you talking about?

    • Timothy McGovern

      No this is not the Walking Dead app.
