Yahoo-owned blogging service Tumblr is pushing an update to its iPhone, iPod touch and iPad application in the App Store. iOS users now have at their disposal a tool which helps turn your photo bursts and videos into animated GIFs that can be easily shared on the service.

Thus, the app analyzes content in your Camera roll to see which photo bursts and videos might qualify as animated GIFs. Here's what The Verge says:

“If you have a long video or burst, Tumblr will ask you to trim the GIF down to about three seconds. You can speed up or slow down an animated GIF before posting, set looping and choose if it should play back and forth endlessly."

The update is scheduled to roll out in the App Store later today but if you don’t see the update live in the App Store’s Purchased section, try opening this link on your iOS device.

Tumblr requires an iPhone, iPod touch and iPad with iOS 8.0 or later and is localized in English, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Simplified Chinese and Spanish.
