MyFaceWhen for iPhone lets you step ahead of the conventional picture text messages and try something a little extra by sending out texts in animated GIF format. The app allows you to record or upload a short video clip and then convert it into an animated GIF image. The result is what might have only seemed a part of the Harry Potter stories – a moving picture. While the GIF images can be made from any video, the real fun of using this app is to come up with your own creation.
Once you save the GIF images, they are compressed and stored in your phone memory. When sending one out, just tap on it and then tap on the ‘Go To iMessage’ tab. With your selected image pasted in your text space, all you need to do is to hit the send button. The app is available for free for a limited time (original price $0.99).
