No Longer Worth The Trouble

This app used to be great, but it’s no longer worth you trouble if you’re intending to use it to post gif reactions or images on message boards. The last update broke the “copy image link” feature. Now, when a link is copied, the entire link is no longer copied to your mobile device’s clipboard. You are now provided with a partial link that lacks the latter portion, including the actual image’s name and file extension. The only thing that you post on a message board when using this app is a big, red X indicating a broken image link.Furthermore, when you compare the partial link that is provided by the app to the link that is provided by the site when visiting it from a laptop or workstation, the links are noticeably different.Save yourself a lot of time, headache and heartache, and choose a different app for your gif needs.

My favorite app becoming unusable

I use this app multiple times a day, but it pulls so much memory that it is becoming unusable. This app is in no way streamlined for heavy users. I've saved almost 1000 gifs as favorites, but there are no playlists, no rapid scrolling, so personal tagging features, so all of them appear as one giant list. The scrolling system is just broken. I have to wait for each gif to load before I can scroll to an earlier part of the list. I've spent 20 minutes just trying to get to the gif I need, even when I know exactly what and where it is. The app worked great when I had 10 favorites, now I'm lucky if I get through 1/10 of my favorites before it crashes. In some cases I have to quit every other app on my phone, then restart the phone, just to use the basic functions of this app. I would switch to a different app in a second if it actually worked. They need to fire their entire UX team and find someone actually competent at the job.

Knock Out App

I’ve used this app for many years. It has never failed me. It supports the free app market which brings me back to the roots of the mid-1995 explosion of free programs for folks who were just getting into the internet. That was the heart of the true purpose of the global community at the time. The structure of this app and ease of use makes it number one to me in the free and paid market place for similar apps. The programmers expertise in the design is outstanding and the updates are just wonderful that come out from time to time. I want to thank the app designers for this wonderful free product.

Abysmal Changes

I’ve been (very happily) using the Giphy web service for the last few years to make gifs that I feel are high quality and are fun to post. I felt very positively about Giphy until one day I logged in to continue my pleasant gif-making hobby and - suddenly - the ‘create gif’ button (a + at the top of my page) no longer directs me to where I make my gifs, but instead to an uncloseable screen that tells me to download the app. At first I thought I could click through this - I don’t like downloading a ton of apps, I keep my phone neat and storage relatively low - but when I tried to skip past it and reopen the page I found that I couldn’t. Now this is very frustrating, as I’ve been (and might I add again, very happily) using the web page for awhile - and suddenly the only way to access my ability to make gifs is to download the app? An app I was to find out works completely differently, much worse, and is way too busy? An app that takes up too much space on my phone? An app that I, by all means, do not want to download? I deleted it immediately, I didn’t even make a single gif. One of the worst changes I have ever seen to anything, ever. I want a working and accessible web page - not some ugly redirect to an app that doesn’t work in the way I’ve been using Giphy this entire time. I literally wish I could rate this lower than a one, but I unfortunately can’t. Do not download, it’s not worth your time. There are better.

Great app, but…..

I don’t know what happened, but since switching over to the 13 pro max it doesn’t work well in messages. I live by the group chat. With that being said every time I come up with something witty, and I want to follow it with a gif, or when I want to react to someone’s message I’m having a hard time to do so. I tap on the GIPHY app in my messages and nothing loads. Just a black page. I gotta exit a few times till eventually it loads (doesn’t do it all the time, but enough times to be unhappy to write a review). By that time the group chat has sent 50+ messages and my gif will be irrelevant. Do you know how much of a loser I feel like when I’m being roasted, and I can’t add a gif to whoever I’m about to burn!? Please help me emotionally hurt these suckas in the group chat!!

Good GIF solution, but animation speed is wrong

I’m on an iPhone X with iOS 13.3. For some time now, I’ve noticed that when using the GIPHY keyboard to send texts (by just tapping the GIF image you want to use, and allowing it to automatically add the image to your text message), the animation-speed of the GIF that gets sent is noticeably slower that what the GIPHY keyboard showed, and the sent GIF usually ends several frames too soon. The only way I’ve found to send GIPHYs that play back at regular speed is to open the GIPHY *app*, and from there, I have the option to save a GIF to my camera roll. THEN I can go to my camera roll and attach THAT saved GIF to a text message. It’s a few extra hoops to jump through, which is why I deducted a couple stars. As far as being able to quickly find appropriate and funny GIFs for my needs, it’s great.

converting to Live Photo

the entire point I downloaded this app is because I wanted to be able to convert gifs to Live Photos so I can make them into wallpapers but whenever I try to save gifs as Live Photos it just doesn’t work I’ve tried uninstalling and reinstalling again and that hasn’t worked either, neither has restarting my phone, I’ve given it all the access needed to do it but every time I try to the little green line will pop up for a second then just disappear and no photo was saved, kinda disappointed ngl but there’s some other features about it that are pretty cool, I hope someone can come up with a solution but for now it’s a solid 3/5

Completely useless.

I cannot believe how simple this app seemed upon finding it and thinking it may be the very thing needed to make customizable gifs, notes, ways to communicate to text and express feelings. Instead, I would select photos and be told to select more or less photos, or to allow complete access to my device. NO CORRECT ACTION TO DO ANYTHING HERE IS AVAILABLE FOR CUSTOM TEXTS, or GIF NO MATTER FHE TIME SPENT NOR EFFORT APPLIED. SEEMS THE SPP ONLY WANTED ACCESS TO ALL MY INFORMATION , location and no amount was enough!!!I cannot delete my account, if in fact , I was able to create one, without the use of a computer but, I was able to download the app, that seemingly can be used only with a computer, and not a phone, which it was readily downloaded with. I’m literate enough to make my own pics, texts etc. without the help of an app that is useless, to myself at least.

Love but there is always a but...

UPDATE: The response I got from customer support was to delete and redownload the app which has been the “solution” every time this has happened. I’m dropping my rating from a 4 to a 2 as this is not an acceptable “resolution” to an issue that happens with almost every single update. After the app is updated the icon in the keyboard (messages app, etc) turns into a little white icon. This is the only app that I’ve had this issue with and while it is nothing more than a cosmetic issue as of now, the point still stands that this shouldn’t happen almost EVERY update.Original Review: This is by far my favorite gif app out there. My only problem with it is that it seems like every other update that gets pushed out breaks the keyboard function of the app in messages. I’m not the only one that has this issue. I’ve got a few family members and friends who also see this same issue. Already emailed support and will gladly update my review if this issue gets resolved but like I said it seems like every other update this happens.

Fun! With one cautionary note

No doubt about it – this app is really fun to use and can be relied upon to deliver almost anything you need, no matter how off the beaten path! Here is my cautionary note. I’d like to respectfully ask the developers to consider removing the images that have to do suicide. The current statistics on death by suicide are escalating at an unprecedented rate, and I don’t think we are even at the peak yet. I don’t want to say this publicly but I would privately tell you what terms I used in search that brought up all of these images. Again, a great app, I just wanted to submit a something for your consideration.
