    Default 'BurstGIF' Lets You Make Animated GIF Images Out of Burst Photography

    If you use your iOS device to take burst photographs often and are looking for a cool new thing to do with all of the photographs that are taken in a long burst shot, then check out a new jailbreak tweak called BurstGIF by iOS developer Alexandru Laurus.

    As the name implies, you can use this tweak to make animated GIF images out of the numerous pictures that are saved when taking a burst photograph. If you're taking burst photography of something that is happening relatively quickly, this is a fast way to make an animated GIF that can be shared on social networks much more easily than videos can be.

    The tweak makes it so that when you are taking burst photography with just about any number of burst photographs, you can then pick the best photographs from the group of burst photographs and then export them as an animated GIF image file that you can then share.

    When you're in the Photos application after having taken a burst photograph, you can tap on the "Select" button, then choose the photos you want to include, and then tap on the "Done" button for the GIF file configurations to appear on your display. Those configurations look like those in the screenshot below:

    From here, you can choose to export the images you selected as an animated GIF image or not. If you don't, then the pictures you selected will be exported as individual images instead. You can also configure your own GIF frames per second, configure an album name for the animated GIF images album, and more.

    We take you through how to use BurstGIF in our video review of the tweak in the video below:

    Overall, BurstGIF is a really awesome new way to take advantage of the features of your iOS devices that support burst mode, such as the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Like noted in our video, it would be nice if you could just select the photos that you didn't want in the animated GIF image instead of having to select all of the ones that you don't want included, as we usually want a majority of them included to make the most seamless animated GIF image.

    If you want to give BurstGIF a try, it's available in Cydia's BigBoss repository right now for just $1.49. iOS 8 is required, as is a burst mode-compatible device.

    This seems really cool. You're right, it would make more sense to automatically select all the photos in a burst photo then deselect unwanted frames.

    Is there a limit to how many frames one can add to a gif?

    Can animated gifs be viewed in iOS, as animations not just stills?

    Couldn't this be an official App Store app?
