"Sun-lover animations!"

Reviewed by / May 31, 2012

Take sunny pictures and create lovely gifs

Malibu Sun Lens is an original Android app that allows users to create gif animations with the sun.

That means you can re-position it, throw it, eat it, chase and many more things, anything you want; just take some pictures and let the Sun Lens put them together to create the gif.

After finishing it, you can easily share your creations in Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr and even star in the Malibu Sunshine project, which brings together sun animation from around the world, creating a film altogether and spreading the artistic gifs so everyone can see them.

Undoubtedly, the design of the app is good and it has great usability, you know at all times what you can do, everything works smooth and there seems to be no problems at all. Of course, you can use the app to create any gifs you want, not only sun-related ones. Malibu Sun Lens was developed by Malibudev, which have obviously made a good effort and created a fine app for everyone to use this summer.

What’s a GIF animation?

GIF animations are little files that turn a series of photos into fun animations. ‘GIF’ stands for Graphics Interchange Format. But if that’s a bit geeky, you just need to know an animated GIF displays images one after the other. Just snap a series of shots, and the app will do the rest.

    It's stupid that you can't move the sun. It's right in the middle.
