I've tried a lot of GIF making apps in my day, but invariably the experience is frustrating and the quality lacking. GIFMaker was built to provide a simple experience around the web's most popular media format. It's is a simple Mac status bar application, meaning it will always be ready for use. Just drag and drop a video or a series of images, and you're done. You can optionally specify quality, time range, and frame rate. I plan to add support for remote URLs, but for now, it's only local files. It's particularly useful for developers or product makers who want to create a demo animation of how their product works. Let me know what you think!

@bitario nice work - I really appreciate the simplicity of status bar applications. No need for an elaborate UI to just get the job done.
Mo BitarMaker@bitario
@front9tech yup, exactly. They're far more convenient and always ready.

I haven't tried this yet but I'm a fan of CloudApp when crafting glorious GIFs. This app seems to provide a bit more functionality and customization of GIFs though.

@rrhoover Interesting - it only creates GIFs of your desktop though right, and not any arbitrary input?

@rrhoover Thanks! I will try this one. It looks promising.

@bitario yes, that's correct!

Just bought and made one. Super easy. Thanks, it is definitely worth 99 cents to have the ability to make quick GIF files.

Really well done! Just bought and used to convert a 16 second .mov to GIF. Smooth and easy to use.

@helloarti awesome, glad to hear it!

I use Gifrocket to convert screencast to gif. It always give me problem for longer video (perhaps more than 4 secs?). I'll be totally sold to this app if it can handle that. Will try one day :)
Mo BitarMaker@bitario
@yapwr ya it can totally handle that :)
