Convert your Live Photos to GIFs, reduce motion and share with your friends—easy, simple, free! Thanks, Google for making awesome iOS apps!

Amazing! Magical! Creative! (1.0.2)

I love stringing me live photos together and making movies. It's the easiest path to movie making I've ever used. Bravo to the team who built this, especially the make a movie tutorial.

Live Photo app- by Google! (1.0.2)

Exceptional app. Useful. much more than the stock Apple app, for live photos. A keeper for now, till something better comes out Google stops updating!

Wow, thanks for making my live photos useful! (1.0.2)

My live photos were always kinda ugly because of the camera shake. Motion stills just made them way better by stabilizing them, clipping out the sudden cut aways, looping them, and converting to a GIF! Now I can actually share them outside of iPhone users.

Great app (1.0.2)
6/26/2016 2:47:00 PM 5/5 By Spilatm
The app makes Live Photos look professional. The only problem is the gif output is limited to very low resolution and exporting to Instagram results is very grainy/pixelated videos. I'd recommend uploading to YouTube or sharing the video directly. I'm very happy with the results and wish I could use this app on my regular videos and not just the Live Photos.

Wow! (1.0.2)
6/26/2016 5:24:00 AM 5/5 By Potatoarecool
This app really makes Live Photos usable! Beforehand they were just a nauseating mess, but now they are little cinematic masterpieces! If only this were in all Live Photos by default!

Live Photos finally have a purpose! (1.0.2)
6/25/2016 4:17:00 AM 5/5 By Eirick
New favorite app, I can't get enough. I love that I can just have Live Photos passively on and periodically see what magic happens by launching Motion Stills.

Quality gif maker from Google (1.0.1)

Finally live photos are useful! Funny that Google had to fix Apple's feature. Good to know they are working hard to fix the crashes too, good dedication.

Incompatible with pre-6S iPhones! (1.0.1)
6/24/2016 2:22:00 PM 1/5 By ZipCuke
Don't bother getting this app if you have an iPhone 6 or older. The app will 'run', technically speaking, but will only display a how-to video (the same one viewable here in the App Store) — followed by this 'gotcha' error screen: 'Unfortunately Motion Stills only works with Live Photos devices. 'Motion Stills uses Live Photos, which are only available on the newest iPhones.'

Crashing after the first 15-20 photos (1.0.1)
6/23/2016 11:07:00 PM 2/5 By WeepinAngel
I can't get to the photos I want to work with because the app is crashing before I can get to them. It'd be nicer to have a more traditional grid view to see more at a glance.

Poor app (1.0.0)

Omg why video is 7 sec and repeatable?????

Doesn't work (1.0.1)
6/19/2016 11:56:00 PM 2/5 By Kyle Augustine
This app would really be cool, except it crashes before you can even pick a photo to edit. Needs an update big time, because it isn't even worth the storage on my phone at this point. I'll be using a different app until this one is updated.

Needed feature! (1.0.1)
6/17/2016 5:20:00 PM 4/5 By Knah
The ability to trim the action in the photo before converting it to a gif or movie.

Crashes whenever it tries to save or send a gif. Will be great once they fix.

Sound attempt to fix Live Photos. (1.0.1)
6/15/2016 6:05:00 AM 5/5 By MaratTuraev
Kudos to google, works way better than default app.

Not perfect, but still cool. (1.0.1)
6/15/2016 4:48:00 AM 5/5 By Dr. Darrow
Ignore the bad reviews. If you have a phone capable of Live Photos, download it already. This app actually makes them useful, and far easier and more fun to share. Kills me how often my phone is made better by Apple's competition. 🙄

Great Concept, Poor Design (1.0.1)
6/15/2016 1:33:00 AM 2/5 By Chrisgamer
Love the concept of the app and the core functionality, but the latest update is a big step backward in usability and appeal. The cloud icons are hideous, and why not just load the images automatically as the user scrolls? I might understand not doing so on cellular, but even when I'm connected to wifi it doesn't download any images automatically - what gives?

Doesn't work (1.0.1)
6/14/2016 9:13:00 PM 2/5 By Jgauth2
It turns Live Photos into gifs except it doesn't because it's broken. Worthless till fixed.

Loved it until the update (1.0.1)
6/14/2016 7:55:00 PM 2/5 By grrreatk8
Won't stop crashing now. I'll update my review once it's fixed. I love this app though - when it works!

I love taking #motionstills (1.0.1)

Motion Stills is amazing and fun. I've started tagging my photos #motionstill on various networks online.

Crash after the update

All that and a bag of chips! 📸 (1.0.1)

Good guy Google does it again. 🙌

Work, It doesn't (1.0.1)
6/13/2016 9:58:00 PM 1/5 By Geforcer
Wish I could properly rate it, but it won't open. After going through intro and allowing access to my photos, all it does is crash. Wish I could properly rate it, but it won't open. After going through intro and allowing access to my photos, all it does is crash. Update on 6/13/16, review: Same as original release, crashes right after tutorial, and crashes with each additional attempt of opening.

Great idea, app needs a lot of work (1.0.1)
6/13/2016 7:33:00 PM 1/5 By Synthmanic
Recent update causes the app to continually crash. Can't load photos past the first 15-20.

Buggy Broken iPhone 6s Plus (1.0.0)
6/13/2016 3:13:00 PM 1/5 By LoniG
The live photos will show in the oddly designed scroll viewer but when loaded only show a black screen. I am assuming this has something to do with iCloud as others have mentioned. Currently useless.

Only for iPhone 6s (1.0.0)
6/13/2016 7:08:00 AM 1/5 By LeonMmm900
Why can't we use this with older iPhone? Ridiculous!

Crashes (1.0.0)
6/13/2016 1:50:00 AM 1/5 By Poshi
The app kept crashing I could barely open it long enough to watch it crash over and over again until I have up and deleted this app. Needs to be fixed.

Cool concept, needs more work and fixes (1.0.0)
6/13/2016 12:11:00 AM 2/5 By ur_mum53
Crashes when browsing my Live Photos. Also, there's some weird parallax effect on certain GIFs that is not present at all on the original photo
