Boomerang from Instagram takes a burst of 10 photos and turns them into an engaging mini video that you'll want to watch over and over.


Easy to use: Capture a person or object in motion with the press of a button. Boomerang automatically generates your mini loop video, which you can watch and share immediately. Or press Done and shoot another.

Selfie Boom: Press the flipping symbol to activate the Selfie Boom feature, and you'll be able to take a burst of selfies to turn into a mini video.

Multiple sharing options: You can share to Instagram or Facebook with the tap of a button. Otherwise, you can press More to share via Pinterest, LinkedIn, email, or SMS.

No account required: Not only is there no signup, but also -- surprisingly -- an Instagram account is not required to use this app from Instagram.


Act fast: You have to move quickly to capture your shot within the limited burst timeframe.

No Twitter button: It would be great to share directly to Twitter from the app. Since you can't, you'll have to open the Twitter app directly and share that way.

Bottom Line

Like Instagram and Layout, Boomerang from Instagram is an easy-to-use, effective app for displaying and sharing your photos.
