Instagram Lovers: If You Haven't Downloaded 'Boomerang' Yet, You Should

April 12, 2016 by Rachel Gulmi

Instagram released a video app called Boomerang back in October. Since I’m usually late to the technology game, I just discovered Boomerang last month. The whole premise is pretty cool but I find it hard to use, so I’m here to give you a little more information on it that might be helpful.

Boomerang takes a burst of photos to create a mini (soundless) video that loops back and forth. The end result actually looks awesome but to get the perfect shot takes more than one try…trust me.

Here’s how to use Boomerang:

Find something that’s moving.

Aim your camera at your target and tap the circle at the bottom of your screen. Note: you can create a longer video by pressing and holding the circle.

Your video will automatically save to your camera roll and you can choose to either share it on Instagram or Facebook.

If you don’t have an Instagram account, don’t worry about it! You can still use Boomerang to create looping videos. Okay, obviously it’s not an extremely difficult app to use but the tricky part is the timing. You only have a few seconds to capture the moving target so if you miss it or you’re off by a second, then it won’t come out as you planned.

It’s a really fun app to use once you get the hang of it. I recommend downloading it (if you haven’t already) and give it a try!
