There are heaps of GIF-making apps out there, but there aren't a lot of professional-grade solutions. So if you're looking for something powerful to use on your iPad, Echograph is your answer.
What Does It Do?
Echograph lets you add motion to your photos using taps and swipes on your iPad. However, it's less of a trendy app and more of a pro tool geared towards photographers and creatives.
Why Do We Like It?
GIFs are fun and sharable and hilarious, but Echograph sees these cinemagraphs as art above all else. You can use pictures taken on your iPad camera, but you can also import higher-res pics using this custom dongle. It's an easy, hands-on way to make quality animations of a more high-brow variety.
