Instagram launches one-second video recording app

While you’re still patiently waiting for Hyperlapse to finally arrive on Android, Instagram has decided to fill the void by releasing Boomerang, an app that lets you record one-second videos. Nothing more, nothing less.

At which point we should mention that Boomerang’s one-second videos aren’t technically videos, as they are actually composed of a burst of five photos, which are collated and subsequently played forwards and backwards repetitively to achieve a so-called ‘boomerang’ effect.

Because Boomerang doesn’t have a dedicated, self-contained feed, users will be required to share their GIF-like videos on Instagram, Facebook, or other social networking platforms. In fact, you don’t even need to create an account to use Boomerang.

Boomerang is currently available for both iOS and Android devices for free.
