Nokia's Cinemagraph App Updated with GIF Export
Nokia today made Cinemagraph 4.0 available for download from the Windows Phone Store. This update offers a few new features, the most significant of which is the ability to export Cinemagraphs as GIF files. The app itself is used to create GIF-like images, but before only allowed sharing through a link to files uploaded to Nokia's servers. The GIF export function makes it much easier to share Cinemagraphs with others. The app also adds location data so Cinemagraphs can be more easily integrated with Nokia Storyteller, and makes general performance improvements. Cinemagraph 4.0 is available to Nokia's Lumia smartphones and is free to download from the Windows Phone Store.
