Hey! uiGIFs is a site I quickly put together to document & share some of the fun and unique interactions I find in apps. If you have any ideas about how I could improve the site, I'd love to hear them!

@ramykhuffash This is great! I would love to see some sort of auto-play implemented. Obviously having them all playing at once is insane, but I think playing them one at a time or on hover would allow for more of a browsing mentality. Having to click on each one to play & pause creates a lot of friction for me personally.
RamyMaker@ramykhuffash · Founder @ Letterfuel
@gianorama yeah a few people are making that suggestion now, so I'll experiment with it and see how it feels. I'm not sure how well the grid will work with auto-play, but hover to play could be good.

interesting to see different UI animation approaches for mobile apps especially

Hi Ramy, very cool idea. Not sure what tools you might be using to generate the GIFs but wanted to give you a head's up that the new Camtasia for Mac 2.9 release today adds iOS device capture and GIF output. Just in case that's useful. :)
RamyMaker@ramykhuffash · Founder @ Letterfuel
@fosteronomo thanks! The tools I use are actually fairly basic. I usually record a video of the iPhone screen with Quicktime (possible since iOS8), then use Licecap (http://www.producthunt.com/posts...) to record the GIF of the video. I also use AppShow (http://www.producthunt.com/posts...) instead of Quicktime sometimes. I'm sure it could be much simpler, so I'll check Camtasia out.

@ramykhuffash Awesome to hear you use AppShow...I'm on the team that's building it! :D We've talked about adding animated GIF output to AppShow but it hasn't made it to the top of the list yet.

@fosteronomo Awesome! I haven't had a chance to use it to create an actual App Store preview video, but I think there's certainly room for products that make creating assets for the App Store faster/easier, especially now that there are so many device sizes :-)
