You would love what Boomerang, the latest feature which Instagram is offering its users. This feature is a sophisticated piece of technology trajectory as it simply creates a video of five photo shot you upload into a one-second burst. Yes, please note it is a one-second burst! That means you can have a riot of fun with simply anything and everything you can do on five single shots.
Instagram’s convenient conversion of five shots into silent video will first run forward and then reverse, forming a loop, which runs repeatedly.
The idea behind the video is along the same lines of the Australian aboriginal ‘v’-shaped toy which when served will fly a distance before returning to the thrower.
Instagram’s boomerang too will let the video it creates for you in forward motion and then reverses the video to create the endless ‘boomerang loop.’
Since the app has no other feed, the video it creates is saved directly on to the camera roll.
No Instagram log-in
For those who have not used Instagram before, Boomerang does not require you to sign-up, nor does it require that you log-in.
Boomerang does seem familiar because it closely resembles features that another of Instagram’s competitor’s ‘Phhhoto’ offered. The startup featured a GIF shooting function which was eventually pulled down by Instagram from its friend-finding function earlier in April.
Boomerang is also very similar to a fire animation feature which Google Photos originally offered.
However, there is one aspect for those of you wanting to start using Boomerang. The photos have to be shot using the app.
As the world of social networking now revolves around capturing special moments ; or all moments of life and sharing every minute of it, Instagram’s Boomerang is one more empowering feature to create something more interesting and exciting for the engaged user.
Newer, smarter ways to create, craft images does have a way of exciting users. Instagram has a head start over others in enabling its subscribers to share a part of themselves through their photos. By fast-jacketing them into 1-second videos, things only got more exciting on Instagram-world, indeed.
