Burstio

Bustio is a new app released in the App Store that will turn your burst photos into animated GIFs or videos, which you can then save to your Camera Roll or share with others via several channels.

The concept is pretty simple. After taking a series of photos in burst mode with your iPhone camera, simply launch Burstio, and select the burst of photos you want to use. From there you have the option to adjust the playback speed from slow, to normal, to fast. Then hit the export button to convert the burst photos into an HD video or an animated GIF.

The exported project will be automatically saved to your Camera Roll, and you will then have the option to share it via the stock share sheet. If that sounds simple, it’s because it is indeed that simple. No bells and whistles are bundled with this app which makes it a great tool to add to your arsenal of fun photo-related apps.

The actual size of the animated GIFs is pretty small, as you can see on this untouched sample above, but I guess the goal of this app is not to make large GIFs, but rather smaller ones that can quickly and easily be shared. Videos can be exported in full HD at 1080p or 720p.

Because it relies exclusively on the burst photo feature, Burstio will only work with photos taken in burst mode on iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, and iPhone 6 Plus, since older devices don’t have this capability.

Burstio is available at the introductory price of $0.99. It’s a fun little app that’s definitely worth the money.

    GifMill turns videos into gifs, which to me is easier than using burst mode photos. Not to mention GifMill is free πŸ™‚

    • Blake

      Thank you for this. Been looking for something to make GIFs out of videos. This will be my go to now.

      Where do I find it? I’m searching on Cydia but no luck.

      • Merman123

        AppStore πŸ™‚ not cydia

      • Saulo Benigno

        Perfect, thanks.

        I thought it was a tweak πŸ˜‰

  • leart

    It requires ios 9, pardon ios 8 πŸ™‚

    • Michal

      Unfortunately it’s only possible with iOS 8

    • Tony Trenkle Jr.

      Why wouldnt you be on iOS 8 yet?

      • leart

        Don’t own a device to run properly ios 8, plus i really love ios 6 πŸ™‚

    Do you have to manually select each photo or will it let you select a Burst session from the camera roll?

    • Michal

      You select a Burst session within the app. No manual selection. You can trim it as you would trim video.

        BOUGHT!

        Now I can remove that Jailbreak tweak that was kind of clunky.

      • BurstGIF is “clunky”? It is only 166 kB…

      • James G

        Not in size but in execution. The menu isn’t intuitive, it interrupts any regular burst mode editing (not just those you want to turn into gifs).

        What BurstGIF does have is finely tuned adjustments for skipping frames in a sequence and adjusting the frame rate. Burstio just gives slow, normal, fast.

      • Oh I gotcha buddy, that makes sense then.

  • Tony Trenkle Jr.

    Kinda defeats the purpose of that jailbreak tweak now lol

    • It wouldn’t if the dev would keep developing the tweak, but like most paid tweaks on my Purchased list, there has been little or no updates… Must have A3Tweaks-itous…
