Forget Mobile Video, Message Your Friends With GIFs
New app Sparks gives millennials what they've been waiting for, the ability to send animated Internet memes via mobile.
Internet provider Compuserve introduced the GIF format in 1987 to provide a color image format for their file downloading areas, but now they're so much more. They have popped up not only on Tumblr but in articles, projects and presentations from the hippest to the most unexpected publications all over the world.
The millennial generation has been asking for an easy way to share their favorite media format, and now an iOS app is finally answering their wish. Sparks enables users to create a ‘spark' to communicate with each other via visually expressive messages that combine text with pictures and GIFs.
