Instantly Convert iPhone Live Photos to GIF with Live GIF

Apple’s new Live Photo feature on the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus has been loved by most. The feature as such is nothing futuristic and it’s just more of a light video option which will let users play with, something very similar to the GIFs yet lighter than the short video clips. Live Photos are something you can see and show only on your iPhone as Apple doesn’t let you share them, and this is where Live GIF will come to your rescue.


Live Photos is not a separate app and every picture that we take on the iPhone 6S or the 6S Plus by default is a live photo. The live camera app captures two photos at a 2.5 sec interval before and after capturing the actual shot. The best part is that the image quality will still stick to 12-Megapixel.

The Live photos however cannot be viewed on other platforms unlike the GIF flies which are invariably platform agnostic. Live GIF is one such application which will let users convert the live photos into GIF files with a single touch thus letting users share the file without worrying about the compatibility at the receiving end.

The application will also give you an option to convert the Live photos to MOV format, just in case. The Live GIF app immediately searches for all your live photos and shows them to the users along with some built in 3D touch actions which will help them to preview it before creating a GIF. The new Live photos can be seen only on i0S 9 and sharing such photos to the non-iOS users had been the point of pain, thankfully that will be eliminated with this app.

Additionally if you are in mood for some fun you can also try out the HIP Gif, an application for creating animated stickers out of your pictures. The Live GIF app is available for download on the iTunes and is priced modestly at $1.99.

How to Get SMS Alerts for Gmail via Twitter

How do you get SMS notifications on your mobile phone for important emails in your Gmail? Google doesn’t support text notifications for their email service but Twitter does. If we can figure out a way to connect our Twitter and Gmail accounts, the Gmail notifications can arrive as text on our mobile via Twitter. Let me explain:Twitter allows you to follow any @user via a simple SMS. They provide short codes for all countries (see list) and if you text FOLLOW to this shortcode following by the  username, any tweets from that user will arrive in your phone as text notifications. For instance, if you are in the US, you can tweet FOLLOW labnol to 40404 to get my tweets as text messages. Similarly, users in India can text FOLLOW labnol to 9248948837 to get the tweets via SMS.The short code service of Twitter can act as a Gmail SMS notifier. You create a new Twitter account, set the privacy to private and this account will send a tweet when you get a new email in Gmail. Follow this account …

Instagram Story links get 15-25% swipe-through rates for brands, publishers

Instagram may arrived late as a traffic source for brands and publishers, but it’s already showing early signs of success, driving new visitors to their sites and even outperforming its parent company, Facebook.For years brands, publishers and other have tried to push people from the Facebook-owned photo-and-video-sharing app to their sites. Outside of ads and excepting a recent test with some retailers, Instagram didn’t offer much help to companies looking to use it to drive traffic. So they had to find workarounds. They put links in their Instagram bios. They scrawled short-code URLs onto their pictures. And they typed out links in their captions.Then last month Instagram finally introduced an official alternative to these hacky workarounds: the ability for verified profiles to insert links in their Instagram Stories.Almost a month after the launch, 15% to 25% of the people who see a link in an Instagram Story are swiping on it, according to a handful of brands and publishers that h…
