GIFs were first introduced back in 1987 and since then have gained prominent support over years among masses. They’re used almost everywhere mostly because of their wide acceptability. Nowadays, it has become a trend to use a GIF instead of using a long list of words. There are many emotions captured in these images that tell a much bigger story than your words could ever describe. After all, you can never describe a face in the exact manner. So whether it’s a sarcastic remark or you’re pretty desperate for something, there’s always a valid GIF that tells communicates your feeling perfectly. But sadly, these GIFs are not directly incorporated into your Smartphone keyboard nor are these available in the in-app for most of the messengers. This creates a problem as you have to look for a GIF every time and you end up with an average one. So let’s stop this annoying culture and cultivate a new one!


So here we have this new iOS app called Giffage that has been developed by Gifface LLC. The app is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad and requires iOS 8.0 or any later version of the OS.


Giffage is a universal keyboard that you can use with any messenger. The keyboard gives you direct access to hundreds or should I say thousands of GIFs available from many different sources all over the world. You can simply search for a picture related to a particular keyword such as sad, happy, giraffe or anything else that pops up in your mind. Or you can go through the different sets of GIFs brilliantly sorted out under different categories such as emotions, memes, celebrities, etc. There are many sub-categories that open up into an infinite world of GIFs with unlimited options to choose from.


I really liked the user-friendly interface of the app. There are so many pictures to choose from but at no point do you feel to be operating a heavy or cumbersome system that makes it difficult to breathe for you. In fact, you’d enjoy the space it gives you. The GIFs are properly sorted out and if you know what you’re looking for, in no time will you find it. Now, you might not like some GIFs but there will definitely be some that instantly become your favorite. There are many such pictures that can be used in general and therefore it’s better if you don’t have to find them every time. So with Giffage, you can add them to your favorite folder and use them easily. You can also share any Giffage with your friends.

Giffage allows you to create your own GIFs. All you have to do is take a picture, apply some filters and add a message to it and you’re done. It’s easy to make and it’s always exciting to have food made by you!

So overall, I’d say that Giffage is a very beautiful, fun and interesting application that you all should give a try to. The app is available for free in the App Store. So don’t forget to check it out!

Pros: universal keyboard; user friendly UI; many categories of GIFs to choose from; create your own GIF; share with friends; add to favorites; free.

Cons: none.

I give this app 4.5 out of 5 stars.
