Giphy is probably the most popular destination for finding animated gifs and other images. What if you could embed and place those into your own photographs, using augmented reality? Thanks to Giphy World AR, now you can. Let's take a look at what this app can do.
With Giphy World AR, it's easy to use animated gifs and stickers in your own space. Basically, if you can record it with your camera, you can add animated stickers and gifs to it.
Start out by looking through the brief tutorial, and giving Giphy World AR access to your camera (and microphone, when asked). Then point your iPhone's camera where you want to add a sticker.
There are several built-in scenes you can use on top of your own space. However, if you tap the grid icon near the top right of the screen, you'll be able to place objects right in your own scene.
Add a "Can you dig it" sticker, or a bunch of tombstones. There's a pretty wide variety of animated gifs and stickers built into the app.
Bring your favorite GIPHY animations and stickers into the real world
If you get tired of what's included right off the bat, you'll encounter a great feature of Giphy World AR. That would be the library of "moar gifs." You can select from different scenes, for those times when you want to build a photo from someone else's background. There are also plenty of sticker packs you can add. As near as I can tell, there aren't any in-app purchases in Giphy World AR; it's all available for free.
Once you have everything in place, it's time to share. You can record a video, complete with an audio track to go along with it. Or, if you prefer, you can just save and share your scene. The Share Sheet Extension panel will open, and you can send a link to your Giphy World scene using Messages, email, and more.
If you record a video, it gets saved to your Photo Library. From there, you can edit it or share it in a variety of ways.
Giphy World AR is a terrific way to express yourself using your camera, prebuilt animated scenes, and moving pictures. You can create normal animated gifs, or even record videos using the scenes and stickers that come with the app.
Additional scenes and sticker packs
If the real world is too boring or you run out of stickers, it's easy to get more scenes and animated gifs to use.
Record, Save, and Share Your Scene
Once you've got your stickers and animated gifs on the stage, you can record a video to share, or just send a snapshot of your scene to someone else.
Put animated stickers on anything
With Giphy World AR, you can place stickers and other animated gifs on anything your camera can see.
