PicsArt, Inc. Launches GifsArt, the Most Powerful GIF Maker on Mobile
New all-in-one GIF creator app allows people on iOS to bring their imagery to life and export directly to Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or WhatsApp
December 22, 2015 -- PicsArt, Inc., a leader in the mobile creative content space, today announced the release of its latest app, GifsArt. The launch brings the creative power of PicsArt to the animated gif space and is the latest move by the company to empower people to collaborate and creatively express themselves visually. GifsArt simplifies the creation process and offers unprecedented flexibility to combine nearly any form of media to create one awesome GIF.
GIFs are on the rise and as mobile content becomes increasingly visual, there is a new emphasis on self-expression and storytelling through animated, bite-sized GIFs. On GifsArt, people can seamlessly create memories with the in-app camera, turn them into GIFs and directly share them with friends through their favorite social media and messaging apps —all without ever leaving the app. You can even search and import content from Giphy, apply effects and add text or stickers to create your animated works of art.
Users are able to combine any form of media—photos, GIFs, and videos—to create one awesome GIF that can be exported directly to the PicsArt gallery or be shared directly to their favorite social networks including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Messenger and WhatsApp.
Sequoia-backed PicsArt is one of the biggest breakout mobile stories of the year, most recently earning a place on Google Play’s Best Apps of 2015. The company is focused beyond a simple “capture and share” experience, and aims to provide features that empower creativity for its global community of more than 250 million users.
“We live in an age where communication is becoming more visual and people crave fun, digestible content, which is why GIFs have exploded in popularity,” said Hovhannes Avoyan, CEO of PicsArt. “Until now, creating a GIF has been an unnecessarily complicated process. Recognizing this, we wanted to create a solution that gives you everything you need to create any kind of GIF you want, whether it’s funny, beautiful, quirky, or highly designed -- all in one place.”
