Users can take mini videos using both – front and back – cameras on their iPhones. The best thing about this app is that you don’t need to register your mobile number of email id to use this app; simply download it from App Store and start using Boomerang.

Once the video is created you can share it with your friends on Facebook and other social media directly from the app. Moreover, you can save the GIF on the camera roll in Photos app on your iPhone.
