By now most of us are familiar with online memes that make their way across social media platforms. There are the popular static memes Sad Keanu, the Erhmagerd Girl, the ICanHasCheezburger.com cats, plus all the dynamic memes on endless loops like Miley Cyrus twerking and the Harlem Shake reenactments.
Along with all the viral memes there are tons of Android animated GIF apps available to help you create the next big thing. What most of these animated GIF apps have in common are online GIF-sharing communities that they want you to join. Not ideal for someone who just wants to make a meme without having to sign-up, share email and remember yet another password combo.
The crew behind Fixie GIF gets that last part loud and clear and that’s what makes their app different. Instead of pushing you to join the community they’re focusing on a simple process that empowers users with the ability to personalize memes with fonts and doodles. Finally!
Here’s the lowdown on what Fixie GIF can and can’t do.
Using your tablet or smartphone’s camera you can create unlimited GIFs. Their streamlined UI takes the guesswork out of customizing a meme with a decorative border or styled font. Once you’re meme is complete you can share it on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and other social and communication channels.
Remember the old adage beggars can’t be choosers? Well, it applies to Fixie GIF. Although the app itself is free it’s lacking a few features that would make it just about perfect as far as apps go.
For starters, it doesn’t have any real editing capabilities. If you want to include certain frames and remove others in your animated GIF you can’t. Same thing goes with any image resizing, cropping or undo action. Also, if you want to expand your library of doodles and fonts you’ll need to cough up some cash. Additional packs cost $0.99 each.
Overall, the app is decent and provides quick and easy way to build an animated GIF. For anyone looking for something with more robust editing features or more developed social networking capabilities consider GifBoom as an alternative. Otherwise, you can make your own meme with Fixie.
