Who is not on Instagram these days? Instagram is one of the prime Social networking apps that almost everybody uses. And with this rise of users across the globe, Instagram obviously has to come up with newer features and apps to keep the users interested. Boomerang is one of those additional features for Instagram. Though Boomerang is a feature, it comes in the form of a complementary app.
Boomerang is an app that lets you take a series of photos in burst setting. But only burst setting photos are not fun enough, so they turn those photos into a short video that generally is 10 seconds long. Now that sounds like fun, doesn’t it? Instagram is not only one of the prime social networking applications, but it also is a photo sharing platform. The users come here and upload their pictures for the world to see. And Instagram also comes with a vast range of photo editing filters to give the pictures a great look within seconds. But only that is not enough to keep the users interested and hooked to the app.
The developers were quick enough to understand that and started working on other apps to complement the primary one. Thus came Layout. Layout is an app that lets the users make beautiful collages with much ease. Boomerang is the newest addition to that collection. I have already stated what it does. And I’m sure you find it as amusing as I do.
The developers at Instagram launched Boomerang on October 22nd, 2015. This app lets the users make funny and hilarious mini videos that can be played both forward and backward. Thus the name. All that you need to do to make a video is the app installed on your Android or iOS device. You open the app and take a video of a moving object. The app automatically turns those burst photos into a high-quality mini video. And the videos are stored in the camera roll storage of the user’s device by default. Could it get any easier?
